20 + NQP-RX replaces NQP in the Parrot Compiler Toolkit, enabling the
21 source code of the compiler to be written in a subset of Perl 6 that
22 is much more powerful, most importantly with regexes, as the name
23 suggests
24 + The revised Perl6/Grammar.pm is much closer to the canonical STD.pm
25 + Regexes may declare contextual and lexical variables
26 + Lazy lists and arrays are partly implemented
27 + The object metamodel is largely written in NQP-RX instead of PIR
28 + The name of the root of the object hierarchy is now Mu
29 + The term 'undef' is gone, replaced by Nil, Mu or *.notdef depending on
30 context
