Really? That's not the impression I get from the 5.9 snapshots. It may be that 5.12 will be based on it, but that will be the far future. I don't expect 5.10 to be out this year. If it will be out next year, it's 3 years after 5.8. If it takes another 3 years for 5.12, then we'll see a Perl on Parrot in 2008.

That will still be sooner than Perl 6 though.

    Your post got me to dig around a bit. According to a thread on P5P in mid July, 5.10 will be developed in two versions, one using the old internals and one using Parrot:
