GNU Guile 3.0.0 released

Version 3.0.0 of the Guile implementation of the Scheme programming
language has been released. There’s a lot of work here, including a new,
lower-level byte code implementation, interleaved internal definitions, a
new exception implementation, and much more. “Guile programs now run up to 4 times faster, relative to Guile 2.2,
thanks to just-in-time (JIT) native code generation. Notably, this
brings the performance of “eval” as written in Scheme back to the level
of ‘eval’ written in C, as in the days of Guile 1.8.
