On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 0.4.8, "Eponymous." Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.

You may now grab Parrot 0.4.8 from the CPAN.

New in 0.4.8:

  • Compilers:
    • HLLCompiler: added tracing options, modified api
    • PGE & TGE bugfixes and updates
  • PAST:
    • added global and lexical variable support
    • added looping constructs, arrays, hashes
  • Languages:
    • Updated PHP ("Plumhead"), Tcl ("ParTcl"), forth, perl6, lua, abc, APL, WMLScript, punie
    • ParTcl is passing > 24.9% of Tcl cvs-latest test suite
    • perl6 now supports hashes, arrays, method calls, arity-based multisubs, quoted terms, ranges (non-lazy), try blocks, $!
  • Design:
    • PDD01 "Overview" - updated
    • PDD22 "I/O" - rewritten and approved
  • Test Suite:
    • Converted Perl 5 Regex tests to PIR, with notable speedup
    • Added tests for opcodes, compilers, languages, and coding standards
  • Build:
    • Major improvements in test coverage for ''
  • Misc:
    • many bugfixes, enhancements, and coding standard updates
    • extended support for non-core platforms including Tru64

If you'd like to develop on Parrot (or help develop Parrot itself), we recommend that you keep up with the latest and best Parrot code by using Subversion or SVK to access our source code repository; see instructions.

Thanks to all our contributors for making this possible, and our sponsors for supporting this project.

Share & Enjoy!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
