Thanks for the update! This is very exciting.

I looked at the emacswiki page you linked. It links to a page called GuileEmacsTodo, but that doesn't seem to be your current to-do list (it was edited too long ago). Could you say what differences a user would notice between Guile Emacs and regular Emacs (if any)? Are there any things that don't work, or any performance regressions?

Hello all,

I've pushed several significant changes to the public Guile-Emacs
repository at <>:

 * Synchronized with bzr trunk as of mid-July.

 * Guile's control operators are used for all Elisp control-flow
   functionality, including special binding, unwind-protect, errors,
   catch/throw, and quit handling.

 * Guile exceptions are handled safely, and are re-thrown as Elisp

 * Emacs's I/O functions can now print arbitrary Guile objects.

 * Coccinelle, a semantic patching tool, can now parse 99% of Emacs's C
   code base, compared to 75% previously. This requires using a patched
   version of Coccinelle (<>)
   and using admin/coccinelle/macros.h as the "--macro-file" argument to
   the spatch command.

 * Last but not least, there is now an `eval-scheme' command:

   (eval-scheme "(define (fact n) (if (= n 0) 1 (* n (fact (1- n)))))")
   (eval-scheme "(fact 23)") => 25852016738884976640000

Guile-Emacs requires libgc 7.2d or better and the development version of
Guile. More information is available on the Emacs Wiki at
