GNU Guile advances one position in TIOBE.
A stained glass window of a Latin square (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Ronald_Fisher_window) will be removed from Cambridge U. (https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/jun/27/cambridge-gonville-caius-college-eugenicist-window-ronald-fisher) because it honors prominent eugenicist R. A. Fisher (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Fisher).
The window visualizes a nice piece of mathematics, with a long history that surprisingly originates in Korea (predating Euler) but in context among windows celebrating Cambridge luminaries it could not be separated from Fisher's racist history, so it's sad but I think it's the right decision.

Ritchie's doctoral committee signed off in 1968, but the Harvard Library wanted a bound copy and he was unwilling to pay the binding costs so he never officially received his Ph.D.
According to the post, the thesis defines a simple model of computation characterizing primitive recursion, within which one can prove that the complexity and growth rates of primitive recursive functions are equal.
