Hello. I am announcing guile-gi v0.0.2.

guile-gi is a library that autogenerates GNU Guile bindings for
GObject libraries that provide typelib files.  GNU Guile is an
implementation of Scheme, a Lisp-like language.  GObject is a standard
way of writing C-language libraries with headers and introspection
information that are intended to allow them to be used from other
languages. Typelib files are GObject's standard way to provide that
introspection information. Among the GObject libraries are GTK3 and
WebKitGTK2, two popular GUI libraries.

In short, this library hopes to make GTK3 and WebKit2 available to

This particular library is one of several different attempts and
solving the interface between GTK+3 and Guile.  Its differentiating
(mis)feature is that its bindings are created dynamically at runtime
by parsing typelib files.

This is pre-alpha code.  Use at your own risk.

The NEWS for this release is
- Improvements in C-to-SCM procedure argument conversions
- Guix skeleton (thanks Jan)
- More versatile GObject construction (thanks LordYuuma)
- More tests and demos
