Depends on your definition of "production ready", but I would not yet use it in any mission critical applications. And with Perl 5.12 now out, I do not yet see a pressing reason to switch to Perl 6 yet.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    so it's not production-ready.
      No, as of now its not. And I think that will be the case for some time to come(May be an year). Only some one working on the project can give a exact date though.

        Did you notice that yourself and I, we both like to be anonymous. It is because the reaction to this kind of topic in any Perl community is nearing some sort of flamewar or in any case something of big proportions.

        This is not supposed to happen normally, because you just come with an honest question but people keep on giving dishonest answers, or politically correct answers such as depends on your definition of "production-ready" or lame stuff like for most definitions of "production-ready".

        That's really dishonest and it annoys me a lot and I'm sure it annoys you too.

        I do appreciate the fact that you are honest Anonymous Monk :)
