GNU Guix 0.2 released

The second alpha release of GNU Guix is available. It comes with a number of new features, notably:

  • The "guix package" command supports upgrades of user profiles and full-text package searches.
  • Binary packages are continuously built and may be transparently downloaded as "substitutes" to the result of a local build.
  • The new "guix pull" command updates the user's copy of Guix and its distro from Git.
  • New Scheme interfaces are available to facilitate package management in various ways.

The distribution has grown to more than 400 packages; noteworthy additions include Xorg and TeXLive.
