Guile [1] has been seeing a renaissance for a couple of years now. The
last release (2.9.2 beta [2], leading to 3.0) is just two days old, and
is adding native compilation for architectures beyond X86_64.

A very interesting (and currently quite active) project written in Guile
is GNU Guix [3], a different kind of package manager (inspired by NixOS).

So Guile is alive and kicking :-)
