Version 1.0.0 of the GNU Guix package manager has been released. "This
1.0 release is a major milestone for Guix. It represents 7 years of
hard work with more than 40,000 commits by 260 people, 19 releases,
and an equally amazing amount of work on documentation, translation,
artwork, web design, mentoring, outreach, and many other activities
that together have made it a thriving project." See this blog entry
for more information.
From the announcement:
Whether you're a software developer, a user, or a free software
enthusiast, we hope GNU Guix will provide you with the tools to deploy
and manage software with confidence and ease, qualities that are not
usually associated with software deployment...
GNU Guix is a transactional package manager and an advanced
distribution of the GNU system that respects user freedom. Guix can be
used on top of any system running the kernel Linux, or it can be used
as a standalone operating system distribution for i686, x86_64, ARMv7,
and AArch64 machines.'
