The number of Perl 6 RFCs hit 161 today. The 100th RFC was Embed full URI support into Perl by Nathan Wiger, allowing URIs like "file:///local/etc/script.conf" to be passed to builtin file functions and operators. The 150th was Extend regex syntax to provide for return of a hash of matched subpatterns by Kevin Walker, and the latest, 161, is OO Integration/Migration Path by Matt Youell.

New Perl 6 mailing lists include perl6-language- sublists objects, datetime, errors, data, and regex. perl6-bootstrap is being closed, and perl6-meta is taking its place (the subscriber list will not be transferred).
