<tohoyn>daviid: Have you considered upgrading G-Golf to guile 3.0?
<tohoyn>sneek, botsnack
<str1ngs>tohoyn: hello, there is work being done on that. but it's not the top priority right now.
<str1ngs>daviid probably could update you more on it though.

<dsmith-work>Morning Greetings, Guilers
<catonano>hi dsmith-work
<cyclopsian>Hey everyone, I've published some guile bindings for the wayland window system last month
<cyclopsian>along with some bindings for xkbcommon and epoxy
<cyclopsian>with that, I was able to get EGL to work as well (it was never implemented in guile-opengl)
<rekado>cyclopsian: oh, that’s great!
<rekado>perhaps we will see a new guile-wm but for wayland then…?
<dsmith-work>So what's with wayland anyway? Why do people want it? Maybe I'm just old, but X11 seems fine for me.
<rekado>AFAIU X11 is not used as intended
<dsmith-work>Not trying for a flame war or anything. Just curious.
<rekado>combined with the separation of composition and writing to a window that’s done by toolkits there are a few ugly side effects, such as blanking when switching windows and the like
<rekado>wayland is a simplification in that regard as it makes the common use-case less cumbersome for today’s toolkits
<str1ngs>cyclopsian: this is awesome. will this work with 2.2.7 at all?
<cyclopsian>str1ngs: probably? I never tested it, but it don't think it uses anything specific to 3.0
<str1ngs>cyclopsian: great.
<cyclopsian>let me know if you develop something cool with it :)

<joshuaBPMan>Hey guile people, I'm trying to send an email with guile...
<joshuaBPMan>I found this example on line
<joshuaBPMan>but it's a little confusing. I've got msmtp set up. I tested it in a shell, now I am just trying to get it to work from guile.
<joshuaBPMan>I figured it out:
<joshuaBPMan>hmmm. now I'm trying to find guile's hash-ing function, so I can generate a message-ID.
<joshuaBPMan>well that was easy (hash <string> <a very large number>)
<rekado>joshuaBPMan: that’s not how you generate a cryptographic hash, though
<rekado>the second argument is for the size of the hash table
