-# Announce: Rakudo Star Release 2013.03
-## A useful, usable, "early adopter" distribution of Perl 6
-On behalf of the Rakudo and Perl 6 development teams, I'm happy to
-announce the March 2013 release of "Rakudo Star", a useful and usable
-distribution of Perl 6. The tarball for the March 2013 release is
-available from <http://rakudo.org/downloads/star/>. A Windows .MSI
-version of Rakudo star will usually appear in the downloads area
-shortly after the tarball release.
-In the Perl 6 world, we make a distinction between the language
-("Perl 6") and specific implementations of the language such as
-"Rakudo Perl". This Star release includes [release 2013.03] of the
-[Rakudo Perl 6 compiler], version 4.10.0 of the [Parrot Virtual
-Machine], plus various modules, documentation, and other resources
-collected from the Perl 6 community.
-[release 2013.03]:
- https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/docs/announce/2013.03.md
-[Rakudo Perl 6 compiler]: http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo
-[Parrot Virtual Machine]: http://parrot.org
-Some of the new features added to this release include:
- * ...
- * ...
-This release also contains a range of bug fixes, improvements to error
-reporting and better failure modes.
-The following features have been deprecated or modified from previous
-releases due to changes in the Perl 6 specification, and are being
-removed or changed as follows:
- * postcircumfix:`<[ ]>` and postcircumfix:`<{ }>` will become
- multi-subs rather than multi-methods. Both at_pos and at_key will
- remain methods.
- * Unary hyper ops currently descend into nested arrays and hashes.
- This will change to make them equivalent to a one-level map.
- * The Str.ucfirst builtin is deprecated; it will be replaced by
- Str.tc.
- * Leading whitespace in rules and under :sigspace will no longer be
- converted to `<.ws>`. For existing regexes that expect this
- conversion, add a `<?>` in front of leading whitespace to make it
- meta again.
- * The ?-quantifier on captures in regexes currently binds the
- capture slot to a List containing either zero or one Match
- objects; i.e., it is equivalent to "`** 0..1`". In the future,
- the ?-quantifier will bind the slot directly to a captured Match
- or to Nil. Existing code can manage the transition by changing
- existing ?-quantifiers to use "`** 0..1`", which will continue to
- return a List of matches.
-There are some key features of Perl 6 that Rakudo Star does not yet
-handle appropriately, although they will appear in upcoming releases.
-Some of the not-quite-there features include:
- * advanced macros
- * threads and concurrency
- * Unicode strings at levels other than codepoints
- * interactive readline that understands Unicode
- * non-blocking I/O
- * much of Synopsis 9
-There is an online resource at <http://perl6.org/compilers/features>
-that lists the known implemented and missing features of Rakudo and
-other Perl 6 implementations.
-In many places we've tried to make Rakudo smart enough to inform the
-programmer that a given feature isn't implemented, but there are many
-that we've missed. Bug reports about missing and broken features are
-welcomed at <rakudobug@perl.org>.
-See <http://perl6.org/> for links to much more information about
-Perl 6, including documentation, example code, tutorials, reference
-materials, specification documents, and other supporting resources. A
-draft of a Perl 6 book is available as docs/UsingPerl6-draft.pdf in
-the release tarball.
-The development team thanks all of the contributors and sponsors for
-making Rakudo Star possible. If you would like to contribute, see
-<http://rakudo.org/how-to-help>, ask on the <perl6-compiler@perl.org>
-mailing list, or join us on IRC \#perl6 on freenode.
