     38In March, Chickens met up at the Chaos Computer Club in Cologne, Germany for a Chicken Hacking Weekend. Here's
     39[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/moritz-heidkamp|Moritz Heidkamp]]'s report on what they got up to.

     253== 5. Stability is for Chickens
     254
     255[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/users/jim-ursetto|Jim Ursetto]] has set up a Chicken Stability Branch
     256effort over at [[http://wiki.call-cc.org/stability]]. Jim describes it as "a fork of the Chicken
     257Scheme core which backports certain useful bugfixes and minor features from the future to 'stable'
     258maintenance versions". Releases for stability/4.7.0 have version numbers like {{4.7.0.x-st}} (for
     259example, {{{4.7.0.1-st}}). If you're interested in running a stable Chicken in production, we recommend
     260that you check out Jim's work.

     266There has been a lot of egg activity over the course of the past few months. I've selected a few,
     267focussing on ones that were announced or discussed on the [[https://wiki.call-cc.org/mailing-lists|mailing list]].
     268
     269TODO: Write about the distributed egg repository
     270
     271By far the most notable thing to have happened is the announcment and implementation of the new
     272Egg management system.
