Hey Guilers,

On behalf of the Spritely Institute, we are happy to share that
Spritely Goblins 0.12.0 has been released!

Goblins is Spritely's distributed object programming environment with
implementations for both Guile and Racket.  Goblins provides an
intuitive security model, automatic local transactions for locally
synchronous operations, and an easy to use and efficient asynchronous
programming interface for encapsulated objects which can live anywhere
on the network.  Its networking model abstracts away these details so
the programmer can focus on object programming rather than protocol
architecture.

Highlights for this release:

* New "Prelay" netlayer

A tech preview of a relay netlayer intended to help users behind
restrictive firewalls participate in a peer-to-peer network.

* New TCP-TLS netlayer

A netlayer for direct TCP communication that is encrypted with TLS.
Effective use of this netlayer will most likely require the use of
relays, as mentioned above.

* New Queue (FIFO) actor in our actor-lib library

A handy new actor that implements a FIFO queue.

* Various fixes and enhancements to CapTP support

Work in the Object Capabilities Network (OCapN) standard group has
been ongoing. This release updates our implementation of the
Capability Transport Protocol (CapTP), the largest aspect of OCapN, to
reflect the consensus that has been achieved in that group. And also
some bug fixes, of course. ;)
