+    Announce: Rakudo Perl 6 compiler development release #41 ("Dahut")
  2
+
  3
+On behalf of the Rakudo development team, I'm happy to announce the
  4
+May 2011 release of Rakudo Perl #41 "Dahut".  Rakudo is an 
  5
+implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see 
  6
+<http://www.parrot.org>). The tarball for the May 2011 release
  7
+is available from <http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/downloads>.
  8
+
  9
+Please note: This announcement is not for the Rakudo Star distribution --
  10
+it's announcing a new release of the compiler only.  For the latest
  11
+Rakudo Star release, see <http://github.com/rakudo/star/downloads>.
  12
+
  13
+The Rakudo Perl compiler follows a monthly release cycle, with each release
  14
+named after a Perl Mongers group. The May 2011 release is code named
  15
+"Dahut".
  16
+
  17
+Some of the specific changes and improvements occurring with this
  18
+release include:
  19
+
  20
+* added a call counter for builtins in Perl 6-level subroutines
  21
+* gcd (greatest common divisor) and lcm (largest common multiple) operators
  22
+* implemented Int.base
  23
+
  24
+For a more detailed list of changes, see "docs/ChangeLog".
  25
+
  26
+The development team thanks all of our contributors and sponsors for
  27
+making Rakudo Perl possible, as well as those people who worked on 
  28
+Parrot, the Perl 6 test suite and the specification.
  29
+
  30
+The following people contributed to this release:
  31
+
  32
+Patrick R. Michaud, Moritz Lenz, Jonathan Scott Duff, Tadeusz Sośnierz,

+If you would like to contribute, see <http://rakudo.org/how-to-help>, ask on
  36
+the perl6-compiler@perl.org mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
  37
+
  38
+The next release of Rakudo (#42) is scheduled for June 23, 2011.
  39
+A list of the other planned release dates and code names for 2011 is
  40
+available in the "docs/release_guide.pod" file.  In general, Rakudo
  41
+development releases are scheduled to occur two days after each
  42
+Parrot monthly release.  Parrot releases the third Tuesday of each month.
