The Guix 1.1 package manager supports a guix deploy command for deploying several machines at once, a new time-machine sub-command, and a variety of other package management handling improvements.

On the operating system side, the Guix 1.1 distribution has improvements to its graphical installer and support for a variety of new services including GNOME Keyring, NFS, PulseAudio, Auditd, and others.
