+Changes to modules included in Rakudo Star:
+- [Bailador](https://github.com/tadzik/Bailador) now binds to all interfaces by default.
+- [panda](https://github.com/tadzik/panda) reads package information from <http://ecosystem-api.p6c.org/> as opposed to <http://feather.perl6.nl:3000/>.
+- panda executable now works under PowerShell.
+- panda returns correct exit status if it fails.
+- panda now ignores POD while determining module dependencies.
+- panda now can [upload test results to testers.perl6.org server](http://perl6advent.wordpress.com/2014/12/21/day-21-community-smoke-testing/).
+- panda now displays help with correct command descriptions when using `--help`.
+- panda has an `smoke` option to download and test all Perl 6 modules.
+- panda can now use `look` option in order to download modules without doing anything else.
+- [HTTP::Easy](https://github.com/supernovus/perl6-http-easy) has received a few algorithm optimizations that made it faster.
+- HTTP::Easy now binds to all interfaces by default when acting as a web server.
+- [ufo](https://github.com/masak/ufo) now leaves `.pm` and `.pm6` in module names.
+- [NativeCall](https://github.com/jnthn/zavolaj) now parses library name like `libfoo-2.0` and `libbar.so.3.3.0`.
