We are pleased to announce GNU Guile 1.9.3. It is the fourth pre-release of what will eventually become the 2.0 stable series, featuring a compiler and virtual machine.
The highlights of this release are Unicode support (use `?' instead of `lambda'!) and the switch to libgc, the Boehm-Demers-Weiser conservative garbage collector.
The original announcement is available at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guile-devel/2009-09/msg00090.html .
