+implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see
+<>). The tarball for the March 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 March 2011 release is code named
+Some of the specific changes and improvements occurring with this
+release include:
+* an improved error message on type check failure in assignment
+* -n and -p command line options
+* complex conjugation support implemented
+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, Tadeusz Sośnierz, Carl Masak, Arne Skjærholt, William Orr,
+Kyle Hasselbacher, Jonathan Scott Duff, Dave Whipp, Jonathan Worthington,
+martin, Solomon Foster, JD Horelick, Jimmy Zhuo, Martin Berends,
+Patrick Abi Salloum, JimmyZ
+If you would like to contribute, see <>, ask on
+the mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
+The next release of Rakudo (#40) is scheduled for April 21, 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!
