+Announce: Rakudo Perl 6 development release #18 ("Pittsburgh")
+
+On behalf of the Rakudo development team, I'm pleased to announce
+the May 2009 development release of Rakudo Perl #18 "Pittsburgh".
+Rakudo is an implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine [1].
+The tarball for the June 2009 release is available from
+http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/downloads .
+
+Due to the continued rapid pace of Rakudo development and the
+frequent addition of new Perl 6 features and bugfixes, we continue
+to recommend that people wanting to use or work with Rakudo obtain
+the latest source directly from the main repository at github.
+More details are available at http://rakudo.org/how-to-get-rakudo .
+
+Rakudo Perl follows a monthly release cycle, with each release code named
+after a Perl Mongers group. This release is named "Pittsburgh", which
+is the host for YAPC|10 (YAPC::NA 2009) [2] and the Parrot Virtual Machine
+Workshop [3]. Pittsburgh.pm has also sponsored hackathons for Rakudo
+Perl as part of the 2008 Pittsburgh Perl Workshop [4].
+
+In this release of Rakudo Perl, we've made the following major changes
+and improvements:
+
+* Rakudo is now passing NN,NNN spectests, an increase of NNN
+ passing tests since the May 2009 release. With this release
+ Rakudo is now passing NN% of the available spectest suite.
+
+[...more items here...]
+
+The development team thanks all of our contributors and sponsors for
+making Rakudo Perl possible. 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 (#19) is scheduled for July 23, 2009.
+A list of the other planned release dates and codenames for 2009 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!
