Submitted by davexunit
davexunit (3765571) writes "GNU Guix, the purely functional package manager and distribution of the GNU operating system, has made a new alpha release. This release features an installation disk image of the GNU system for i686 and x86_64 platforms, 130 new packages, and an improved developer's API.

A description of Guix is provided in the full release notes:

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection. It also offers a declarative approach to operating system configuration management. Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager, with Guile Scheme programming interfaces.
