We are delighted to announce GNU Guile release 2.2.6, the sixth bug-fix
release in the 2.2 stable release series.  See the NEWS excerpt that
follows for full details.

                             *  *  *

Guile is an implementation of the Scheme programming language.

The Guile web page is located at https://gnu.org/software/guile/, and
among other things, it contains a copy of the Guile manual and pointers
to more resources.

Guile can run interactively, as a script interpreter, and as a Scheme
compiler to VM bytecode.  It is also packaged as a library so that
applications can easily incorporate a complete Scheme interpreter/VM.
An application can use Guile as an extension language, a clean and
powerful configuration language, or as multi-purpose "glue" to connect
primitives provided by the application.  It is easy to call Scheme code
from C code and vice versa.  Applications can add new functions, data
types, control structures, and even syntax to Guile, to create a
domain-specific language tailored to the task at hand.

Guile implements many common Scheme standards, including R5RS, R6RS, and
a number of SRFIs.  In addition, Guile includes its own module system,
full access to POSIX system calls, networking support, multiple threads,
dynamic linking, a foreign function call interface, and powerful string

Guile 2.2.6 can be installed in parallel with Guile 2.0.x; see

Changes in 2.2.6 (since 2.2.5)

* Bug fixes

** Fix regression introduced in 2.2.5 that would break HTTP servers

Guile 2.2.5 introduced a bug that would break the built-in HTTP server
provided by the (web server) module.  Specifically, HTTP servers would
hang while reading requests.  See <https://bugs.gnu.org/36350>.

** 'strftime' and 'strptime' honor the current locale encoding

Until now these procedures would wrongfully assume that the locale
encoding is always UTF-8.  See <https://bugs.gnu.org/35920>.

** Re-export 'current-load-port'

This procedure was erroneously removed in the 2.2 series but was still

** Minor documentation mistakes were fixed

Here are the SHA256 checksums:


[*] 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 guile-2.2.6.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 keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.1
  Libtool 2.4.6
  Makeinfo 6.5
  Gnulib v0.1-1157-gb03f418

Happy hacking with Guile!

Ludovic Courtès, Mark H Weaver, and Andy Wingo.
