Announce: Rakudo Perl 6 compiler development release #37 ("BristolBath")
On behalf of the Rakudo development team, I'm happy to announce the
January 2011 release of Rakudo Perl #37 "BristolBath". Rakudo is an
implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see
<>). The tarball for the January 2011 release
is available from <>.
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 <>.
The Rakudo Perl compiler follows a monthly release cycle, with each release
named after a Perl Mongers group. The December 2010 release is code named
after Bristol & Bath Perl Mongers group.
Some of the specific changes and improvements occurring with this
release include:
* faster subroutine calls (type cache)
* implemented 'handles Rolename' trait
* 'use Devel::Trace' debugging pragma
* improved parsing of keyword boundaries
* faster .comb
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, Kodi Arfer, smashz, Jonathan Worthington, Solomon Foster,
Tadeusz Sośnierz, Kyle Hasselbacher, Patrick R. Michaud,
Jonathan Scott Duff, Fitz Elliott, Adrian White, Christoph Otto,
Stefan O'Rear, Michael H. Hind, Vasily Chekalkin and Hongwen Qiu.
If you would like to contribute, see <>, ask on
the mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
The next release of Rakudo (#38) is scheduled for February 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!
