Hi Schemers,

I am pleased to announce that the SCSS project has released version
0.3.0, our sixth development release.

SCSS is a Scheme module for parsing, querying, and emitting style
information compatible with the W3C Cascading Stylesheets
recommendation. While SCSS does not itself provide any rendering
functionality, it can provide style information to applications and
libraries that do. If used with XML documents produced by SXML or
SDOM, SCSS can accomodate the full range of selector types described
in the W3C recommendation; it can also match simple selectors against
strings when structured document information is not available.

The 0.3.0 development release features a major rewrite of the parser
that brings it much closer to the grammar described in the CSS 2.1
recommendation and allows greater flexibility in error handling. The
list-based representational format of SCSS stylesheets has also been
changed, making it (partially) compatible with the format used by the
WebIt! Scheme XML toolkit ( SCSS
now supports CSS 2.1 media types, as well as the rgb-function syntax
for color specification.  See the NEWS and TODO files included in the
distribution for more detailed information on the changes in this

The release can be obtained from the SCSS home page
( or from the SCSS project page on
