Purdue Perl Mongers,

The easy-to-install Rakudo Star version of Raku (formerly known as Perl
6) is out.  The software infrastructure surrounding it is completely
different and much better than the last time I installed it months ago.

Good morning/afternoon/evening Rakoons!

Sadly, there was no Rakudo/MoarVM/NQP release in January, so Rakudo Star
is going to use the next best thing, the release from February. This
change was just pushed, and is ready to use.

This is the first release that appears on GitHub as an actual
release[1], too, using a new GitHub workflow. This could probably be
used to create binary releases for Mac and Windows users too, if someone
has some spare time and passion.

The release is always available on rakudo.org as well, of course [2].

Happy hacking everyone~
