GNU Guix 0.5 released
We are pleased to announce the fifth alpha release of GNU Guix.
The highlights are:
- Port to the Loongson MIPS64 processors, using the n32 ABI.
- New monad interface to handle operations on the store.
- New whole-system configuration API, allowing users to declare and instantiate a machine's settings.
- 110 new packages, including "big ones" such as GNU IceCat and hacker's favorites such as Guile-WM. ;-)
An updated QEMU virtual machine is provided, featuring Guix 0.5 and dmd 0.1.
See the original announcement for details.
