I am pleased to announce that Xsmith version 1.0.0 is now available. You can
find it in the Racket package catalog at:

https://pkgs.racket-lang.org/package/xsmith

Xsmith is a library for creating fuzz testers, also known as "fuzzers," for
programming language compilers and interpreters. In other words, Xsmith is a
library for creating random program generators.

Xsmith implements a domain-specific language (DSL) for defining random program
generators. The DSL is used to specify a programming language's grammar,
typing rules, and other information that guides generation choices. Xsmith
also includes utilities for creating a command-line interface for generating a
single program or starting a web server that generates one program per request.

Xsmith is bundled with two example random program generators that were created
using the library: one for C and one for Scheme.

This is the first public release of Xsmith. It is neither feature-complete nor
API-stable, but it should be usable by people other than the authors :-). We
welcome feedback!

Please send bug reports and fixes to <xsmit...@flux.utah.edu>.

There is a mailing list, <xsmit...@flux.utah.edu>, for discussing Xsmith.

Happy fuzzing!

Eric.
