in november, the parrot core team met for the first parrot developer
summit. there we set a date for 1.0, created a roadmap that would get
us there and beyond, and discussed a release and support policy.
parrot 1.0 marks the successful completion of our critical roadmap
items, and the introduction of these new policies. it also marks the
end to our nlnet grant, $70k generously donated to support the design,
prototyping, implementation, and documentation of nine critical
the name is mostly a marketing gimmick, as our release numbers are
time-based , and .0 releases will on occur in january from now on.
it's more important to note that this marks our 27th regular monthly
release, and the start of a new, longer deprecation cycle designed to
attract high-level language developers.
