implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see

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.

If you would like to contribute, see <>, ask on
the mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
The next release of Rakudo (#42) is scheduled for June 23, 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.
