The first of a regular series of Rakudo Star releases has been announced
. "Rakudo Star is
aimed at 'early adopters' of Perl 6. We know that it still has some bugs,
it is far slower than it ought to be, and there are some advanced pieces of
the Perl 6 language specification that aren't implemented yet. But Rakudo
Perl 6 in its current form is also proving to be viable (and fun) for
developing applications and exploring a great new language. These 'Star'
releases are intended to make Perl 6 more widely available to programmers,
grow the Perl 6 codebase, and gain additional end-user feedback about the
Perl 6 language and Rakudo's implementation of it.
" It's built on
the Rakudo Perl 6 compiler, the Parrot virtual machine, and an initial
set of library modules.
