Item posted by Dr William Bland <quacker> on Mon 23 Jun 2003 06:24:18 PM UTC.

I am pleased to announce the release of Schemix version 0.2.0.

New in this release:

- Schemix has a concept of kernel name-spaces (allowing symbols of the
  form module-name::symbol-name)

- It builds as a module, or as part of the kernel, on Linux versions
  2.4.x and 2.5.x.

- It can optionally use kallsyms and/or devfs.

- It understands all primitive C types, and also supports
  multidimensional arrays of C types in a way that is compatable
  with SRFI 25.

- For each independent Scheme interpreter, you can enable and disable
  debug messages at run-time.

- There is a 'help' function for getting help on built-in procedures.

The release contains pre-built modules for Redhat 9 (kernel 2.4.20-8)
on i386, i586, i686 and athlon architectures.

It can be downloaded from:
