GNU Guix 0.7 released
We are pleased to announce the next alpha release of GNU Guix, version 0.7.
This release is an important milestone for the project since it is the first to provide an image to install the GNU system from a USB stick.
Noteworthy features for the release are:
- The GNU operating system can now be installed. Try it out!
- To make it possible the guix system command has been augmented with new options, and support for 'operating-system' declarations has been vastly improved.
- Programming has been simplified with the introduction of "G-expressions", which capture dependencies used by build-side expressions.
- More than 130 packages have been added, including "big ones" like the GIMP and Maxima.
See the original announcement for details.
