GOOPS 0.1.2 released

Version 0.1.2 of GOOPS---Guile Object Oriented Programming System is
now available via anonymous FTP from and mirrors
of that site (see list below).

GOOPS is the object oriented extention to Guile.  Its implementation
is derived from STk-3.99.3 by Erick Gallesio and version 1.3 of Gregor
Kickzales `Tiny-Clos'.

Briefly stated, the GOOPS extension gives the user a full object
oriented system with multiple inheritance and generic functions with
multi-method dispatch.  Furthermore, the implementation relies on a
true meta object protocol, in the spirit of the one defined for CLOS
(`Gregor Kiczales: A Metaobject Protocol').
