... as well as evaluations.
Today is the tenth anniversary of #GNU #Guile 2.0! 🎉
It was the first milestone towards an implementation that would actually allow you to write all your application in #Scheme. Lots of good memories, personally. And it’s humbling to see just how much has been achieved since then!
Using Zabbix that was deployed on the GNU Guix build farm by Ricardo, Cuirass is now able to display the status of every connected build node.
The CPU idle time, the available memory and the free store disk space percentage are represented.
The annual #Guix-HPC report is out!
Guix has made it into Debian Unstable! This means Debian users can use Guix as a "userspace" package manager now! https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/guix
This is really wonderful! Debian and Guix both care deeply about reproducibility.
This could be a big win for user freedom on both (cotd ...)
Now starting a post-FOSDEM #Guix Day unconference!
I attended most of the talks in the “Declarative” #FOSDEM track today and I enjoyed them all!
It’s been truly inspiring all along, and perhaps one of the best programs this devroom has had over the last few years. Thank you, fantastic hackers!
In essence, mrustc (a Rust compiler in C++) is now used to build Rust 1.29, instead of 1.19 as was the case before:

And that's it! Links all on -> https://nlnet.nl/news/2021/20210204-NGIZeroAtFOSDEM.html. See you there! 😍 👋
In fact, all the talks in the “Declarative and Minimalistic Computing” track look exciting to me:
There’s an exciting #GNU #Guix program at #FOSDEM this week-end, plus a one-day Guix workshop on Monday 8th!
New ‘guix package --export-manifest’ command emits a manifest listing all the packages in your profile. You can then pass it to ‘guix package -m’ to deploy precisely those packages:
A helper for those willing to migrate from “imperative-style” package management to declarative style.
