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.
