|| ||[swn] Scheme Weekly News for 2002-09-09|
|| ||Mon, 09 Sep 2002 23:28:18 +0100|
This is a round-up of news and announcements related to the
Scheme programming language, mostly taken from newsgroups,
mailing lists and web sites that I'm aware of. Feel free to
send me more. The aim is to publish in multiple formats on the
web each week, but more on that very soon. (Date: 2002-09-09)

Initial release of GTK2 bindings for Gauche. Lots of missing
calls, but developers are asked to test it and report bugs.
It probably helps if you know some GTK2 already.
First release of the new stable branch of Guile Scheme from GNU.
Expanded functionality, including more SRFI support and better
Guile bindings for GSL and LAPACK
(Download link) Bindings for the GNU Scientific Library and
(to a much lesser extent) LAPACK. Includes fast implementations
of a number of numerical routines.
A minor release of the "practical Scheme compiler". Contains
improved hygenic macro support, the BDB debugger, a new shared
library naming scheme and a SRFI facility.
Enhanced Emacs support for Scheme programming. Now works in
FSF Emacs 21 and 20, and XEmacs 21.
A new branch of guile-gtk which only supports gtk+ 1.2 and doesn't
require gnome. Allows access to the gtk+ toolkit from guile.
R5RS Scheme implementation for system scripting (and other tasks,
of course). Supports UTF-8, EUC-JP, and Shift-JIS multibyte
encodings natively. This release contains bugfixes, SRFI-30
block comments, module inheritance and debugging features.
