NEWS excerpt:

  - | 2008-03-06
    - bugfix: add-to-load-path! synchronizes
        This proc from module (ice-9 session) now properly updates
        internal state (module catalog cache) for new directories.
    - bugfix: fortune cookie file handling more robust
        Previously, the procs in module (database fcookie) would fail
        ungracefully if the cookie file did not strictly begin and end
        with a "delimiter line", that is, for N cookies, there must be
        N+1 delim-lines.  Now, there can be N-1, N or N+1 delim-lines.
    - bugfix: SRFI 4 u64vector elements w/ high bit set
        Previously, reading, writing and internal processing of such
        numbers would incorrectly handle them as negative.  Now they are
        correctly handled as unsigned.
    - incompatible change: run-all-tests no longer supports "--log FILE"
        This option proved to be problematic in the presence of tests
        that (mis)managed their output streams.
    - extension to substring and make-shared-substring arg handling
        These procedures now take negative indices.  A negative index N
        is taken as -N counted from the end of the string.  For example:
        (substring "abcde" -4 -2) === (substring "abcde" 1 3) => "bc".
  - | 2007-10-23
    - refinement of -lFOO config/usage
        Configuration no longer adds "-lgdbm", "-lpthread" and (if
        enabled) "-lreadline" to the var `LIBS'.  Thus, "guile-config
        link" no longer shows those elements, and the respective libs
        are no longer loaded on interpreter startup.
