in thread Are monks hibernating?

One wonders what it would take to re-invigorate interest? Will 5.10 have sufficient new features or improvements to rekindle the flame?

Im hoping it will raise the excitement level somewhat. Ive had a modest amount of feedback about the new regex features that would indicate that there is some enthusiasm for a new release.

Would an installable version of Perl 6 with sufficent performance to at least equal Perl 5 do the trick?

I'm sure it would. Although I'm sure the current perl6 folks would object to the implication that the current perl6 isn't installable. :-)

    I wasn't having a dig. I just mean that a 300+mb dependancy (ghc) is hardly conducive to mass distribution.

    I've seen an impressive example in a recent clpmisc Abigail's post, also available from Google Groups.

      Although its amusing that none of the respondants to it actually mentioned the regex, they were all nattering away about Abigail's sig.

        Oh, it happens quite so often with Abigail's sigs...
