Hello,

I hit a bug on i686-linux-gnu, which turned out to be due to the lack of
pthread_exit interception, which is fixed by a 2010-08-14 commit by
Ivan [0].  This fix is lacking from both 7.1 and 7.2alpha4.

I think the number of bug fixes in CVS warrants a new release.

In addition, we’ll be releasing GNU Guile 2.0 within a couple of months,
so it would be great if a release could be published by then.  :-)

Thanks,
Ludo’.
