Hey all,

I think I've finally managed to roll together a guile-lib release that
works with Guile 1.8 and 2.0. NEWS follows. Bug reports to either list,

Happy hacking,


guile-lib 0.1.8 -- 2010-08-29

* Updates for Guile 2.0.

Guile 2.0 has incorporated many modules from Guile-Lib, but all the same
we have to make sure that one Guile-Lib installation works fine with 1.8
and 2.0. To that end 

* The default SSAX parser no longer drops whitespace.

We used to drop extraneous whitespace when using the default XML parser,
but strictly speaking, this loses information. Guile-Lib now preserves
whitespace in the resulting SXML.

* SSAX supports UTF-8 output on Guile 1.8.

Guile 1.8 naively treats characters as bytes, not understanding
unicode. Still sometimes it's useful to emit UTF-8 sequences in Guile
1.8, which is what this SSAX does. Note that Guile 2.0 includes its own
SSAX, and handles unicode natively.

* Expose ssax:predefined-parsed-entities

Allows the user to define &foo; XML entities.

* License changed to GPL and LGPL, version 3 or later.

See the specific modules for their licenses.

* Removed modules: (math rationalize), (scheme session), SRFIs 34,35,40

Guile 1.8 and above support rationalize natively. The improvements in
(scheme session) are in Guile now, as are SRFIs 34 and 35. SRFI 40 is
withdrawn, in favor of SRFI 41.

* Removed module (container queue)

Use (ice-9 q) instead.

* Call tree analysis in statprof

Statprof can save away the various call trees that it samples for later
analysis. See the statprof documentation, for more information.
