I'm pleased to announce the first release of
SLAYER multimedia programming environment
for the (Guile) Scheme language.
SLAYER aims to be a specification for creating
portable multimedia applications in Scheme.
It currently provides an SDL/OpenGL based
execution environment, but there are also plans
to port it to web browsers (using either Chicken
Spock or Gambit Scheme to JS compiler)
and to be able to generate stand-alone executables
and android apps
SLAYER also comes with a set of demos,

a simple text editor with a 3d canvas which allows
you to look at a colorful sphere from various
- the classical game of PONG (with bugs!)
- an image browser, inspired by Thien's Guile-SDL
- an almost-complete implementation of Chess
for two players on one computer
- and more!
In addition, there's also a self-contained Windows
build available, which might help spread the idea
of Free Software among the unaware. Both the
source and the w32-build are available at:
