GNU Guile 2.9.1 (beta) released

Andy Wingo — October 10, 2018

We are delighted to announce GNU Guile 2.9.1, the first beta release in preparation for the upcoming 3.0 stable series.

This release adds support for just-in-time (JIT) native code generation, speeding up all Guile programs. Currently support is limited to x86-64 platforms, but will expand to all architectures supported by GNU Lightning.

GNU Guile 2.9.1 is a beta release, and as such offers no API or ABI stability guarantees. Users needing a stable Guile are advised to stay on the stable 2.2 series.

See the release announcement for full details and a download link. Happy hacking, and please do any bugs you might find to
