We are pleased to announce the release of the GNU Guix Workflow
Language version 0.2.0, representing 383 commits by 3 people.

This release contains a number of big, incompatible changes compared
to the previous release 0.1.1.  The "guix process" command has been
removed in favor of a single "guix workflow" command and workflows are
now loaded from files instead of finding them in Guile modules on
GUIX_WORKFLOW_PATH.  Workflows can now be specified in Wisp syntax in
addition to the S-expression Scheme syntax.  For details see the
section on changes below, or take a look at the manual:

• About

  The Guix Workflow Language (GWL) provides an extension to GNU Guix's
  declarative language for package management to automate the
  execution of programs in scientific workflows.  The GWL can use
  process engines to integrate with various computing environments.

• Download

  Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

  Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

  [*] 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 gwl-0.2.0.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 --recv-keys 

  and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
    Autoconf 2.69
    Automake 1.16.1
    Gnulib v0.1-3269-g03d7a6b1f
