I am surprised that Moritz or some other monk did not bring it up earlier on this site, but since no one did, let me report that the Rakudo Star November 2015 Release (release 2015.11) is now the official Perl 6 beta version, as officially announced on November 28: http://rakudo.org/2015/11/28/announce-rakudo-star-release-2015-11-now-in-beta/.

In addition, and perhaps more importantly, the 1.0 production version is still planned for the Christmas 2015 period: "The Rakudo Perl 6 compiler is now officially in beta for the upcoming production release around Christmas 2015.".

Great news, and a very nice Xmas present from the Perl 6 / Rakudo development teams. Thanks and congratulations to them!

    I kind of feel this was a bit premature. These days, almost every time I try to do something non trivial in Perl 6, I encounter a bug. And performance still is not great. I'm afraid people will be disappointed when they open the gift

    When I look at the pace of rakudo development, it seems to me that December 2016 would have been more reasonable. By then there will probably be a better documentation system, more perfomance and features, and fewer bugs.

      These days, almost every time I try to do something non trivial in Perl 6, I encounter a bug.

      Are these reported already or are you discovering new bugs? If you find something they're not already aware of, please report it!
