    12 It has been a fruitful week for the egg repository: two new eggs and lots of bug fixes and improvements.

    1414[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/moritz-heidkamp|Moritz Heidkamp]] has created the [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/zmq|zmq]] egg, which contains bindings for the [[http://www.zeromq.org/|ZeroMQ]].
    1515
    1616[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/felix-winkelmann|Felix Winkelmann]] has ported [[http://snow.iro.umontreal.ca/?viewpkg=tar|Marc Feeley's tar]] implementation from the [[http://snow.iro.umontreal.ca|Scheme Now (Snow)]] project to Chicken, available as a chicken egg called [[snowtar]].
     17
     18Alan Post has created the [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/genturfahi|genturfahi]] egg, a Scheme packrat parser.
     19
     20[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/jim-ursetto|Jim Ursetto]] released [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/chickadee|chickadee]] 0.9.8.2, which contains a fix for the iOS 4.1 offset bug.
     21
     22[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/felix-winkelmann|Felix Winkelmann]] has added static linking support support for the following eggs:
     23[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/json|json]],
     24[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/base64|base64]] and
     25[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/environments|environments]].

    1827[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/peter-bex|Peter Bex]] has fixed a serious issue in [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/spiffy|Spiffy]], the Chicken web server.  As Peter noticed in [[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-users/2010-10/msg00171.html|his message]] to the [[http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/chicken-users|chicken-users]] mailing list, earlier versions (i.e., 4.8 and older) are not affected by that bug. Spiffy users are encouraged to upgrade from version 4.9 to 4.10 (which also includes a fix for handling empty path components that are now preserved by [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/uri-generic|uri-generic]]).

    4956Several egg authors have adopted the exit status "protocol" for [[http://tests.call-cc.org|tests]] with [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/egg/salmonella|salmonella]].  The tests are very important for the robustness of eggs and Chicken itself.  Since tests are executed by the Chicken core code from the [[http://code.call-cc.org/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=chicken-core.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/master|git master branch]] they also help catching bugs in the compiler.  So, adding tests to eggs not only improves the quality of eggs themselves, but the whole Chicken system.
     
    6168Alan Post reported a [[https://bugs.call-cc.org/ticket/421|bug]] which affected optional parameters in lambda lists, which was instantaneously fixed by Felix.

    63 Felix has also fixed some bugs in {{find-files}}, {{delete-directory}} and blob read-syntax, among other fixes and improvements.
     70Felix has also added a neat setter for {{list-ref}} and fixed some bugs in {{find-files}}, {{delete-directory}} and blob read-syntax, among other fixes and improvements.

    7885Yi Dai asked about [[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-users/2010-10/msg00143.html|the interaction between the readline egg and procedures line {{read}} and friends]].  [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/mario-domenech-goulart|Mario Domenech Goulart]] suggested [[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-users/2010-10/msg00144.html|a hack]], but Yi Dai said that he'd like something like [[http://www.gnu.org/software/guile/guile.html|Guile]]'s behavior.

    80 Alan Post asked on IRC's {{#chicken}} for a directory for a new egg called {{genturfahi}}.  Alan said that {{genturfahi}} will allow for building parsers that can parse packrat/RATS! parser specifications.

    8287Among the usual lurkers and talkative {{#chicken}} users, a nice surprise was the presence of [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/daishi-kato|Daishi Kato]], a long time Chicken user and developer.
