* Perlito5 (Perl 5 compiler):

-- option "-B" is now the default; this executes immediately: perlito5 -e 'say "ok"'
-- option "-MO=Deparse":
   $ node perlito5.js -Isrc5/lib -MO=Deparse -e ' while (1) { say "works" } '
-- environment variable PERL5LIB=src5/lib now works

- parser:

-- autoquote hash-keys fix
-- string interpolation in m//
-- accept underlines inside numbers

- javascript backend:

-- negative index in array
-- more file and process operations: chdir, unlink, close, exit
-- control functions: next, last, redo, break
-- more functions: rand, printf, sprintf
-- "continue" blocks
-- GLOB references

- perl5 backend:

-- requires v5.10


* Perlito6 (Perl 6 compiler):

-- updated method hyper syntax to use >>. instead of .>>


9.0 2012-04-11

* Perlito5 (Perl 5 compiler):

- parser:

-- there is now an internal "grammar API"; new words can be added to the grammar from inside perl5 modules;
   The non-standard "token" grammar was moved to a module
-- here-docs
-- new Perl5-in-Perl6 backend (experimental)
-- new option -Bjs/-Bperl5
-- new option -Cast-perl5
-- added option -I
   Note: -I./src5/lib is required to compile the compiler and also to run some of the tests
-- runs some tests from the perl5 test suite (pmurias++)
-- implemented prototypes (function signatures)
-- "use", import/unimport; "use strict"/"no strict"

- perl5 backend:

-- use native data structures and ops

- javascript backend:

-- works on node-js (pmurias++)
-- @ISA and inheritance
-- %ENV, @ARGV
-- simple regexes (using javascript native regex)
-- symbol tables/typeglobs
-- references
-- "local", "our"; goto &sub
-- wantarray; each; __PACKAGE__
-- native javascript can be accessed with JS::inline('string')
-- reduced generated code size; emitted code is more optimized and better formatted
-- cleanup unused modules from the browser backend

- javascript backend regressions:

-- the d8 shell (v8 javascript) doesn't support some file system functions needed by the compiler
-- perlito5 calling convention is incompatible with native javascript
The last commit using native javascript calls is "e1e3316b"

* Perlito6 (Perl 6 compiler):
- compiler namespace moved from Perlito to Perlito6



8.0 2011-12-24
- added new compiler for Perl version 5.

* Perlito Perl 5:
- command line "perlito5.pl"
- supported backends: Perl 5, Javascript
- source code in src5/ directory

* Perlito Perl 6:
- command line renamed to "perlito6.pl"
- supported backends: Perl 5, Python 2.6, Javascript
- new experimental backend: Java
- fixed META.yml for "v6.pm" CPAN distribution (thanks Aevar)
- fixed unicode IO, added unicode tests
- add some formatting to Perl5 and Javascript output
- methods: map, grep
- operators: x
- source code moved to src6/ directory

Regressions:

- removed '-B' command line flag (since 7.0)
- backends pending upgrade to the new AST: Common Lisp, Ruby 1.9, Eval
- backends no longer supported in this version: Go, Parrot, Rakudo, Clojure


7.0 2011-04-20
- supported backends: Perl 5, Python 2.6, Javascript

- added "perlito" command-line compiler and shell
- new distribution "v6.pm" (Perlito in Perl 5)
This replaces Pugs::Compiler::Perl5 as the v6.pm compiler in CPAN.
- correct operator precedence
- interpolation of variables and code in strings
- 'unless' and statement modifiers
- several fixes in List, Hash, Array, Block, Bool, Str, Mu
- operators: numeric autoincrements, defined-or, range

Regressions:

- removed '-B' command line flag
- backends pending upgrade to the new AST: Go, Common Lisp, Ruby 1.9, Eval
- backends not supported in this version: Parrot, Rakudo, Clojure

6.0 2010-07-27
- Ruby backend bootstrap.
- more tests

5.0 2010-07-19
- Python backend bootstrap.
- use variable assignment instead of binding - that is, use '=' instead of ':='
- 'use' - all backends can now use Test.pm
- 'elsif'
- 'loop'
- regex quantifiers
- Lisp backend now bootstraps with the 'util/mp6.pl' compiler

4.1 2010-03-24
- floating point numbers
- 'while' loop

4.0 2010-03-20
- Go backend bootstrap.
The Go backend was updated to the latest Go language spec.
- Perl5 backend optimized; 30% faster
- More library functions, added to all backends
- New 'Eval.pm' module - implements a MiniPerl6 interpreter in MiniPerl6.
This should add some debugging capabilities later on.
- New test suite. See README on how to use 'prove' for each backend.
- New compiler options to create binary executables
- Currently the stable backends are: Perl5, Javascript, JVM, Lisp, Go.
See README for bootstrapping instructions for all backends.
- Removed support for features that are not standard Perl6.

3.0 2010-01-21
- Go language backend; using Go: http://golang.org
- Java-class backend; using Rhino: http://www.mozilla.org/rhino
- util/mp6.pl - compiler command line script written in MiniPerl6
- new repository at http://github.com/fglock/Perlito
- new web page at http://www.perlito.org created by nferraz (Nelson Ferraz)

2.0 2009-10-09

- simplified 'make' inside tokens

1.0 2009-08-28
