Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the fourth development release of the gzochi
game development framework.

The project description, from Savannah: gzochi (/zoʊ-tʃiː/) is a
framework for developing massively multiplayer online games. A server
container provides services to deployed games, which are written in
Guile Scheme, that abstract and simplify some of the most challenging
and error-prone aspects of online game development: Concurrency, data
persistence, and network communications. A very thin client library
can be embedded to provide connectivity for client applications
written in any language.

This is primarily a bug fix release, focused on improving the
stability and correctness of durable task scheduling and transactional
access to data. Additionally, it includes:

* A new scalable data structure in the Scheme API, based on SRFI-44
sequences: gzochi:managed-sequence

* Reporting of average transaction duration via the server's embedded
administrative web console

* Performance improvements to both the server and reference client

* ...and more! See the NEWS files in the distribution for details

This is a development release; the framework is largely
feature-complete but likely not bug-free. Nonetheless, there's
extensive server and client documentation, and the distribution
includes two example games with heavily-annotated source code. For
more information, visit http://www.nongnu.org/gzochi/ or check out the
project page on Savannah, at
http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/gzochi/ -- you can pick up the
from the downloads section.
