> Announce: Rakudo Perl 6 compiler development release #34 ("Paris")
> On behalf of the Rakudo development team, I'm happy to announce the
> October 2010 release of Rakudo Perl #34 "Paris". Rakudo is an
> implementation of Perl 6 on the Parrot Virtual Machine (see
> <http://www.parrot.org>). The tarball for the October 2010 release
> is available from <http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/downloads>.
> 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 <http://github.com/rakudo/star/downloads>.
> The Rakudo Perl compiler follows a monthly release cycle, with each release
> named after a Perl Mongers group. The October 2010 release is code named
> "Paris", because the of the Perl love at the Open Source Developers
> held in Paris, France earlier in the month.
> Some of the specific changes and improvements occurring with this
> release include:
> * we now have a simple version of require
> * the local timezone is available in $*TZ
> * samespace versions of m// and s/// were implemented as ms// and ss///
> * Str.flip is now 100 times faster than it used to be
> * the subroutine version of Str.comb now exists
> * Hyperoperators can now be applied to infix:<+=> and friends.
> * improved diagnostic messages
> 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, Patrick R. Michaud, Bruce Gray,
> Carl Masak, Ronald Schmidt, Jonathan Worthington, TimToady,
> TimTom, PhatEddy, Patrick Abi Salloum, and your humble release
> manager Jonathan Scott Duff.
> If you would like to contribute, see <http://rakudo.org/how-to-help>, ask on
> the perl6-compiler at perl.org mailing list, or ask on IRC #perl6 on freenode.
> The next release of Rakudo (#35) is scheduled for November 18, 2010.
> A list of the other planned release dates and code names for 2010 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!
