Changes from 2.16.3
This release fixes a serious bug, leading to a runtime error for Guile-Gnome built against Gcc >= 5.0.Glib
Changes from 2.16.2
The primary objectives, working towards this release, were (a) to remove all code specific to the support of Guile versions prior to Guile 2, (b) removing all [but 1 Corba related that still need to be taken care of, help welcome] Guile deprecated calls, and (c) wrap gdk_pixbuf_get_pixels required by Guile-Clutter 1.12.
Note that at the time we write, Guile-Cairo 1.10 has not been released yet, it will hopefully soon be the case. In the mean time, the required bleeding edge Guile-Cairo stable version must be obtained from the source, see here.
Guile-Clutter 1.10.0 is out! This is a particularly pleasing release, as it wraps the latest version of the ultra-hip Clutter library. Impress your friends, hack up a great demo in Guile-Clutter! Check the release announcement for all the details.
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.16.2 is out! The most important thing about this release is that it works with the Guile 2.0.x series. Also it's the first tarball in a while, so there are a number of build issues that it fixes. See the release announcement for all the details.
We've switched to git, from bzr. See the development page for all the details of the new setup. Also, Guile-GNOME now supports the hot new 1.9 series of Guile. Happy hacking :-)
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.16.1 is out! This one's big: we are now API and ABI stable. Write now, run anywhen. But as a dessert, there's also Guile-Clutter, raw and effervescent, at version 0.7.6. Good times!
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.15.97 is out. But that's totally the news of a couple of weeks ago, because now 2.15.98 is out. The big changes is that the representation of the Scheme GObjects is now much more simple; see the 2.15.97 release notes for more info. Since then things have gone well; 2.15.98 is a preview for 2.16.0. So stability is coming soon!
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.15.96 is out. The big news is that we've done a fairly thorough API review. All exports are in the documentation, and all of the functions' arguments should 'make sense'. Give it a roll! With a little bit of testing, 2.16.0 could be out within a month.
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.15.95 is out, featuring documentation and API regression tests for every wrapset except CORBA -- 13 in total. Spooky. Check our download page for information on downloading it. The only thing left until we go stable is an API review, for which we now have the tools.
Trunk Guile-Gnome-Platform has a first pass at documenting the libglade, libgnomecanvas, gconf, libgnome, and libgnomeui libraries. Check the documentation for all the goodies.
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.15.94 is out, featuring documentation for the GObject, GLib, ATK, Pango, PangoCairo, GDK, and GTK+ wrappers.
The core GObject system has finally been documented, which is available as html, pdf, or texi. The documentation is automatically generated from the source code (both C and Scheme) and the set of bindings actually exported by the modules, so it is complete, and will not go out of date.
Guile-Gnome-Platform 2.15.93 is out, featuring many-fold speedups at load time, if your Guile is new enough. Also, there's a new release of Guile-GStreamer, version 0.9.91.

We were alerted that visitors to this humble site might get the impression that the project is dead. Heavens no, we're hack machines! Recent changes include the stabilization and parallel installability of the platform bindings. The archive has also seen the addition of a number of non-platform wrappers, among them libpanel-applet, dbus, and evolution-data-server. Check the download page for the latest.
In light of the continued downtime on savannah, guile-gnome has finally made a home for itself on Gna!. Thanks, Gna! A release will be out Real Soon Now.
One of our own, Andreas Rottmann, has taken over the maintainership of the g-wrap project, a scheme-C bindings generator. This release is the first in well over a year. Version 1.9.0 is a complete rewrite, offering runtime value wrapping, procedure calls using libffi, and a delayed bindings system that decreases load time by a factor of seven.
We have switched to using GNU arch for primary development. Details about getting the archive can be found on the developer's page. We will, however, keep CVS available as a read-only snapshot of the current development code.
Because we aim to cover the entire Gnome library stack,
guile-gnome has amicably split from the
guile-gtk project. However, until we can open up a new project on savannah,
we are continuing to use
guile-gtk's mailing lists.
