+We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Guix version 0.8.2,
+representing 1,743 commits by 24 people over 3.5 months.
+
+
+• About
+
+  GNU Guix is a functional package manager for the GNU system.
+  The Guix System Distribution is (GuixSD) an advanced distribution
+  of the GNU system.
+
+  In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports
+  transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package
+  management, and per-user profiles.  GuixSD offers a declarative
+  approach to operating system configuration management and is highly
+  hackable.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package
+  manager, except that packages are defined as native Guile modules,
+  using extensions to the Scheme language.
+
+  The operating system uses the Linux-Libre kernel and the GNU dmd init
+  system.  At this stage it can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.
+
+  It is also possible to use Guix on top of an already installed
+  GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and armv7.

+  [*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
+  .sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
+  and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:
+
+    gpg --verify guix-0.8.2.tar.gz.sig
+
+  If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
+  then run this command to import it:
+
+    gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 3D9AEBB5
+
+  and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
+
+  This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
+    Autoconf 2.69
+    Automake 1.15
+    Makeinfo 5.2
+
+
+  To install the Guix System Distribution, please see “System
+  Installation” in the manual.  To install Guix on a running
+  system, see “Installation” in the manual.
+
+
+• Changes since version 0.8.1 (excerpt from the NEWS file)
+
+  ** Package management
+
+  *** New “binary tarball” installation method is available
+
+  See “Binary Installation” in the manual.
+
+  *** New ‘guix publish’ command, to publish one’s store
+
+  See “Invoking guix publish” in the manual.
+
+  *** ‘guix package’ runs “profile creation hooks” as needed
+
+  It creates X.509 certificate bundles in the profile’s etc/ssl directory, if
+  needed, generates a package database cache for GHC if the profile includes 
GHC
+  (the Haskell compiler), and generates an Info ‘dir’ file (this part was
+  already done before.)
+
+  *** ‘guix package’ creates an ‘etc/profile’ file in the profile
+
+  See “Invoking guix package” in the manual.
+
+  *** Commands understand version prefixes, such as ‘gcc-5’ for ‘gcc-5.1.0’
+
+  *** ‘guix package --search’ now sorts packages by name and version
+
+  *** Substitute information is now fetched using HTTP pipelining
+
+  Before that the “substituter” used threads.  Using HTTP pipelining means that
+  resource consumption is reduced on both the client and server sides.  As a
+  side effect, a progress report is displayed as substitute info is downloaded.
+
+  *** ‘guix package’ warns when a $GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH module cannot be loaded
+
+  *** New ‘--sources’ option to ‘guix build’
+
+  *** New Bash completion file, installed in $sysconfdir/bash_completion.d
+
+  *** New ‘guix import hackage’ command
+
+  See “Invoking guix import” in the manual.
+
+  *** ‘guix lint’ supports FTP for the ‘source’ and ‘home-page’ checkers
+
+  *** ‘guix lint’ has a new ‘derivation’ checker
+
+  *** ‘guix import cpan’ better handles dependencies and licenses
+
+  *** Packages are now build in an environment with a UTF-8 locale
+
+  ** Distribution
+
+  *** C library's name service switch (NSS) is now fully configurable
+
+  See “Name Service Switch” in the manual.
+
+  *** New services: wicd, lirc, colord, upower, console-keymap, postgresql
+
+  *** Xorg service supports new drivers, such as Nouveau
+
+  *** lsh service has new options, initializes its seed by default
+
+  *** /etc/ssl symlink is created, for X.509 certificates
+
+  See “X.509 Certificates” in the manual.
+
+  *** ‘guix system’ reports duplicate service identifiers
+
+  *** New /etc/bashrc file that loads Bash completion when available
+
+  *** SLiM service uses sessions from 
/run/current-system/profile/share/xsessions
+
+  See “X Window” in the manual.
+
+  *** The Linux “YAMA” restricting policy on PTRACE_ATTACH is now disabled
+
+  *** /etc/shells now lists all the user accounts’ shells
+
+  *** /gnu/store is now remounted read-only, to avoid accidental modification
+
+  *** /etc/profile is sources each profile’s ‘etc/profile’ file
+
+  *** 718 new packages

+
+  ** Programming interfaces
+
+  *** New (guix build gremlin) to parse and validate ELF dynamic link info
+
+  *** (guix build-system gnu) has a new ‘validate-runpath’ phase
+
+  This phase reads the dynamic entries of ELF files and reports libraries 
listed
+  as NEEDED that are not found in the RUNPATH.
+
+  *** New (gnu services desktop) module and ‘%desktop-services’ variable
+
+  *** New (guix cvs-download) module, for CVS checkouts
+
+  *** New (guix build-system waf) module, for the Waf build system
+
+  *** New (guix build-system haskell) module, to build Haskell packages
+
+  *** (guix build-system gnu) now supports zip archives
+
+  *** New convenience syntax ‘modify-phases’ added in (guix build utils)
+
+  *** The ‘ld’ wrapper more finely determines whether to use ‘-rpath’
+
+  *** (guix gexp) exports ‘gexp-input’ to describe input unambiguously
+
+  *** The ‘define-gexp-compiler’ form allows (guix gexp) to be extended
+
+  *** New ‘local-file’ constructor exported by (guix gexp)
+
+  ** Noteworthy bug fixes
+
+  *** Profiles created with ‘guix package -p’ as indirect GC roots
+
+  Before that they were made permanent GC roots–i.e., uncollectable.
+
+  *** ‘guix package’ distinguishes downgrades from upgrades
+
+  *** Handle HTTP redirects to relative URI references
+      (<http://bugs.gnu.org/19840>)
+
+  *** Downloads now honor the ‘http_proxy’ environment variable
+      (<http://bugs.gnu.org/20402>)
+
+  *** ‘--no-*’ options are now always correctly handled
+      (<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2015-02/msg00702.html>)
+
+  *** SLiM no longer leaks open file descriptors
+
+  *** Don't compare <pam-service> objects with 'equal?'
+      (<http://bugs.gnu.org/20037>)
+
+  *** x86_64 and i686 bootstrap binaries updated (<http://bugs.gnu.org/19780>)
+
+  *** ‘find-files’ no longer follows symlinks (<http://bugs.gnu.org/20081>)
+
+  *** libc message catalog (‘libc.mo’) is now installed
+
+  *** libstdc++ has appropriate RUNPATH (<http://bugs.gnu.org/20358>)
+
+  *** ‘dhcp-client-service’ now correctly tracks dhclient’s PID
+
+  ** Native language support
+
+  *** New translations: da (Danish)
+
+  *** Updated translations: eo

+We are pleased to announce the next alpha release of GNU Guix, version 0.8.2.
+
+The release comes both with tarballs, which allow you to install it on top of 
a running GNU/Linux system, either 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Requirements.html from 
source] or 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Binary-Installation.html 
from a binaries], and a USB installation image to install the standalone 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/System-Installation.html 
Guix System Distribution] (GuixSD).
+
+The highlights for this release include:
+
+* The 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Binary-Installation.html new 
method] to install Guix on a running system from binaries, which can greatly 
simplify installation.
+* GuixSD has new configuration interfaces for things like the 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Name-Service-Switch.html 
name service switch], new 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Services.html service 
definitions], easier 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Using-the-Configuration-System.html
 desktop-style configuration], and many tweaks and fixes.
+* A new 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/html_node/Invoking-guix-publish.html 
guix publish command] allowing everyone to publish their own binaries.
+* 718 new [http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/package-list.html packages] 
(including "big ones" like GnuCash, IcedTea, and GHC) and 189 package updates
+* Countless [http://bugs.gnu.org/guix bug fixes] and usability improvements.
+
+See http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2015-05/msg00195.html for

+== About GNU Guix ==
+
+[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix GNU Guix] is a functional package manager 
for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution or GuixSD is an advanced 
distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix and 
[http://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.html respects 
the user's freedom].
+
+In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports 
transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, 
per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from 
the Nix package manager, except that packages are defined as native 
[http://www.gnu.org/software/guile Guile] modules, using extensions to the 
[http://schemers.org Scheme] language.  GuixSD offers a declarative approach to 
operating system configuration management, and is  [...]
+
+GuixSD can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.  It is also possible to use 
Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and 
armv7.
