Hi David,

Hey Guilers!

On behalf of the Spritely Institute, I'm happy to announce that Guile
Hoot v0.4.0 has been released! Hoot is a Scheme to WebAssembly
compiler backend for Guile, which means you can now run Scheme in the
browser for real, tail calls and all.

The highlights of this release are:

* Hoot now supports user-defined modules.  Users no longer have to
   stuff their entire program into one file!

* The standard library is now available as a collection of importable
   modules.  Hoot provides the R7RS (scheme ...) namespace, as well as
   its own (hoot ...) namespace.

* An example project was added to the source tree in Git to serve as
   an easy starting point for new Hoot projects.  This example project
   also ships with our official release tarballs.  See the template's
   README [0] for more information.

* More of R7RS-small has been implemented and Hoot can now run 54 out
   of 57 Scheme benchmarks! [1] (Note that this data is currently just
   from my machine.  The official benchmark server will need to be
   capable of running NodeJS 22+, or another V8 distro, before Hoot
   results could be published there.)

Read the full release notes here:

If you use Guix then it's easy to try out Hoot:

     guix pull
     guix shell guile-next guile-hoot

Happy hooting!

This is awesome! I can't wait to start hooting.

Thank you all for the hard work :)
