  1 + Announce: Rakudo Perl 6 compiler development release #34 ("Paris")
  2 +
  3 +On behalf of the Rakudo development team, I'm happy to announce the
  4 +October 2010 release of Rakudo Perl #34 "Paris". Rakudo is an
  5 +implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see
  6 +<http://www.parrot.org>). The tarball for the October 2010 release
  7 +is available from <http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/downloads>.
  8 +
  9 +Please note: This announcement is not for the Rakudo Star distribution --
  10 +it's announcing a new release of the compiler only. For the latest
  11 +Rakudo Star release, see <http://github.com/rakudo/star/downloads>.
  12 +
  13 +The Rakudo Perl compiler follows a monthly release cycle, with each release
  14 +named after a Perl Mongers group. The October 2010 release is code named
  15 +"Paris", because the of the Perl love at the Open Source Developers Conference
  16 +held in Paris, France earlier in the month.
  17 +
  18 +Some of the specific changes and improvements occurring with this
  19 +release include:
  20 +
  21 +* we now have a simple version of require
  22 +
  23 +* the local timezone is available in $*TZ
  24 +
  25 +* samespace versions of m// and s/// were implemented as ms// and ss/// respectively.
  26 +
  27 +* Str.flip is now 100 times faster than it used to be
  28 +
  29 +* the subroutine version of Str.comb now exists
  30 +
  31 +* Hyperoperators can now be applied to infix:<+=> and friends.
  32 +
  33 +* improved diagnostic messages
  34 +
  35 +For a more detailed list of changes see "docs/ChangeLog".
  36 +
  37 +The development team thanks all of our contributors and sponsors for
  38 +making Rakudo Perl possible, as well as those people who worked on
  39 +Parrot, the Perl 6 test suite and the specification.
  40 +
  41 +The following people contributed to this release:
  42 +
  43 +Moritz Lenz, Kodi Arfer, Patrick R. Michaud, Bruce Gray,
  44 +Carl Masak, Ronald Schmidt, Jonathan Worthington, TimToady,
  45 +TimTom, PhatEddy, Patrick Abi Salloum, and your humble release
  46 +manager Jonathan Scott Duff.
  47 +
  48 +If you would like to contribute, see <http://rakudo.org/how-to-help>, ask on
  49 +the perl6-compiler@perl.org mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
  50 +
  51 +The next release of Rakudo (#35) is scheduled for November 18, 2010.
  52 +A list of the other planned release dates and code names for 2010 is
  53 +available in the "docs/release_guide.pod" file. In general, Rakudo
  54 +development releases are scheduled to occur two days after each
  55 +Parrot monthly release. Parrot releases the third Tuesday of each month.
  56 +
  57 +Have fun!
