In addition to the terse official release notes, there's also a blog post from 2018-08-11 detailing the changes in the then-upcoming 5.0.0 release:

Sounds very exciting!

Personal highlights:
- Deterministic code generation, meaning reproducible builds!
- Full numeric tower!
- Declarative egg language with separate build and install steps!
- Improved minimalism in core!
- Improved PRNG!

I'm happy to note that nixpkgs got Chicken 5 already the next month:

I have Mastodon.in.th domain registered, if anyone want to run Mastodon instance for Thai community please feel free to contact me. I plan to do it at first but I don’t have time and willpower to maintain, so I’m willing to transfer the domain to anyone who does. Caveat: you have to be a Thai citizen or I think have a work permit in Thailand to have a .th domain.

What do people think about a DNS scheme for associating a domain to an instance, similar to MX records, various special subdomains for email verification, etc? Let's say if pointing bkhl._specialstring.elektrubadur.se to mastodon.sdf.org, that meant I want @bkhl@elektrubadur.se to refer to this account at the moment. Is something like this already a thing, or planned?

Just re-launched my personal web site elektrubadur.se/ with some new cool features:

* No JavaScript.
* No cookies.
* No comments.

If for some reason you want to comment on something there you can for instance discuss it on here. For now it's mostly my photos though, so not much to discuss. Maybe I'll start writing a bit on technical subjects there, we'll see.

@veer66 being the only Thai in my feed so far, do you mind fielding questions about the script? I know อู is ตีนคู้, but what is name for the vowel mark for the short version อุ?
