This release has been a long time coming and I'm happy that the day has finally arrived. There's a small patch of mine in this release (my first compiler hack ever) that optimizes comparison operations for floating point numbers. If anyone is interested in hacking on compilers, I highly recommend checking out Guile as one of the easier points of entry into the space. Andy Wingo, the author, even wrote up a blog post with plenty of project ideas to improve things: http://wingolog.org/archives/2016/02/04/guile-compiler-tasks
