Announce: Rakudo Perl 6 compiler development release #38 ("Toulouse")
On behalf of the Rakudo development team, I'm happy to announce the
February 2011 release of Rakudo Perl #38 "Toulouse". Rakudo is an
implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see
<http://www.parrot.org>). The tarball for the February 2011 release
is available from <http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/downloads>.
Please note: This announcement is not for the Rakudo Star distribution --
it's announcing a new release of the compiler only. For the latest
Rakudo Star release, see <http://github.com/rakudo/star/downloads>.
The Rakudo Perl compiler follows a monthly release cycle, with each release
named after a Perl Mongers group. The February 2011 release is code named
"Toulouse".
Some of the specific changes and improvements occurring with this
release include:
* basic IPv6 support
* new --ll-backtrace command line option for low level backtraces
* the negation meta operator can now only be applied to operators
where it makes sense.
For a more detailed list of changes, see "docs/ChangeLog".
The development team thanks all of our contributors and sponsors for
making Rakudo Perl possible, as well as those people who worked on
Parrot, the Perl 6 test suite and the specification.
The following people contributed to this release:
Moritz Lenz, Solomon Foster, Kodi Arfer, Tadeusz Sośnierz, Patrick R. Michaud,
Carl Masak, Jonathan Scott Duff, Jonathan Worthington, Vasily Chekalkin, Will
"Coke" Coleda, Michael Stapelberg, Arne Skjærholt, Fitz Elliott
If you would like to contribute, see <http://rakudo.org/how-to-help>, ask on
the perl6-compiler@perl.org mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
The next release of Rakudo (#39) is scheduled for March 17, 2011.
A list of the other planned release dates and code names for 2011 is
available in the "docs/release_guide.pod" file. In general, Rakudo
development releases are scheduled to occur two days after each
Parrot monthly release. Parrot releases the third Tuesday of each month.
Have fun!
