Do you mean to say that Abigail's concerns have been addressed? I must say I don't like the idea of code changing meaning from Perl 5 to Perl 6, but neither could I get myself worked up about this particular instance, because I find print length ($foo) + 1; to be ugly. I don't like the GNU bracing style either.
It is still the case that a space between a function name and
the parentheses forces it to be treated as a list operator, so there's no joy for Abigail on that point.
What has been resolved is the attempt to treat methods the
same way, which didn't work so well. Methods are now
treated differently from functions, and are assumed to
have no arguments unless the next character is
a parenthesis indicating an argument list, or a colon
indicating an adverb. I just posted a message to perl6-language explaining this in excruciating detail, so I won't repeat it all here. I'd give you a link but it
hasn't come through the perl.org gauntlet just yet...
