2010-02-18 [docs/ChangeLog] draft of the 2010.02 entry
286 + NQP-RX replaces NQP in the Parrot Compiler Toolkit, enabling the
287 source code of the compiler to be written in a subset of Perl 6 that
288 is much more powerful, most importantly with regexes, as the name
289 suggests
290 + The revised Perl6/Grammar.pm is much closer to the canonical STD.pm
291 + Regexes may declare contextual and lexical variables
292 + Lazy lists and arrays are partly implemented
293 + The object metamodel is largely written in NQP-RX instead of PIR
294 + The name of the root of the object hierarchy is now Mu
295 + The term 'undef' is gone, replaced by Nil, Mu or *.notdef depending on
296 context
