GNU Guile 2.9.5 (beta) released

Filed under
Development
GNU

We are delighted to announce GNU Guile 2.9.5, the fifth beta release in preparation for the upcoming 3.0 stable series. See the release announcement for full details and a download link.

Besides the usual set of optimizations, this release adds an --r6rs option for better R6RS support out of the box, and also adds a new --r7rs corresponding to R&RS. Guile's core exception handling has also been rebased onto the raise-exception and with-exception-handler primitives, enabling better compatibility going forward with structured exception objects, which are more common in the broader Scheme community than Guile's old throw and catch.

GNU Guile 2.9.5 is a beta release, and as such offers no API or ABI stability guarantees. Users needing a stable Guile are advised to stay on the stable 2.2 series.

For some, the holidays are a hectic time of shopping, cooking, and a house overflowing with loved ones.

No matter how you end up spending the holiday season this year, there’s comfort to be found in the Linux App Summit of 2019. This summit, which combined the strengths of everyone involved in developing applications for Linux, focused on a few major topics... Read more

Qt Creator 4.11 is released

We added experimental support for Qt for WebAssembly and Qt for MCUs. We improved the general handling of configuring, building and running projects in so many smaller ways that I fail to choose anything for being highlighted here. If you use CMake 3.14 or later we now use CMake's file-base API for configuring and parsing projects. Which behaves much more reliably than the previous server-mode, especially if you also use CMake from a terminal or other applications. Read more

Games: Transport Fever 2, Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York, Rocket League

  • Build a transportation empire with Transport Fever 2 out now, same-day support for Linux

    Urban Games and Good Shepherd Entertainment are back, with Transport Fever 2 now officially available with same-day support for Linux. With a wide variety of transportation options available to build across multiple generations, there's a huge amount of content included. Prepare to kiss your time and friendships goodbye as we've got another great time-sink on our hands.

  • Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York for Linux is now uncertain

    Before release, the store pages for Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York very clearly listed Windows, MAC OS, Linux and now it's only available for Windows. Not to be confused with Bloodlines 2, Coteries of New York is styled like an interactive fiction (a fancy way to say: Visual Novel). It does look good though and it sounded very interesting so we were quite excited to see the mention of Linux support.

  • Rocket League's new Item Shop and Blueprints get a price reduction

    Oh Psyonix, what have you done? Rocket League recently had the loot boxes removed, with Blueprints and an Item Shop instead so you see exactly what you get but the pricing is terrible. As someone who has hundreds of hours in Rocket League, Psyonix really did disappoint with the big update recently. It could have been handled a lot better, but it came across as incredibly greedy. It's a game you have to pay for, yet they wanted us to spend a ridiculous amount of money on Credits for some of the items.
