Greetings hackers,

I am pleased to announce that Guile-Lib 0.1.6 has been released. It
may be obtained at:

What is Guile-Lib

Guile-Lib is intended as an accumulation place for pure-scheme Guile
modules, allowing for people to cooperate integrating their generic
Guile modules into a coherent library. Think "a down-scaled,
limited-scope CPAN for Guile".

What's new

* New module: (apicheck).

Apicheck implements one function to describe a set of modules' API as an
s-expression, and another to verify the s-expression against the current

* New module: (sxml fold).

(sxml fold) defines a number of fold-based XML transformation operators.

* Improved support for parsing Texinfo.

(texinfo) now parses the arguments of the @deffnx family of commands.
Added support for parsing the inline commands @b, @i, @r, @sansserif,
@slanted, @t, and @tie.

* Better automatic documentation via (texinfo reflection).

Generic functions are now documented along with all of their methods.
Documentation for methods is now taken from their procedure

Documentation produced with `module-stexi-documentation' may now be
filtered or elided via a user-supplied procedure. This allows procedures
defined in C to have their documentation supplied from a source that is
not a docstring or an object property, for example from docs snarfed
from the C source, or from docs written in a separate texinfo file.

Procedures documented by `module-stexi-documentation' are now ordered in
the order in which they appear in the module's export list, if it is
possible to obtain this information.

* Limited support for transforming Docbook to Texinfo.

(texinfo docbook) defines procedures for parsing docbook into SXML,
flattening that SXML into a form more like STEXI, and a stylesheet for
transforming a limited subset of that SXML into STEXI. The stylesheet
may be extended by user code in order to support more docbook elements.

* Guile-Lib now has API regression tests.

Using Apicheck, we now know the exact interface exported by Guile-Lib,
so that there will be no unintentional breakages in the future.

* Bugfixes

See the ChangeLog for details on fixes to (sxml ssax input-parse) and
(string wrap).

Happy hacking,
