Yesterday the first Perl 6 distribution was released. It’s named Rakudo Star:
Rakudo Star is aimed at “early adopters” of Perl 6. We know that it still has some bugs, it is far slower than it ought to be, and there are some advanced pieces of the Perl 6 language specification that aren’t implemented yet. But Rakudo Perl 6 in its current form is also proving to be viable (and fun) for developing applications and exploring a great new language. These “Star” releases are intended to make Perl 6 more widely available to programmers, grow the Perl 6 codebase, and gain additional end-user feedback about the Perl 6 language and Rakudo’s implementation of it.
If you’re interested to play with Perl 6 practically you may download the Rakudo Star here. Sure it isn’t stable and cannot be used in the real projects. But as the first step to Perl 6 it looks perfect.
If you like nature sound that service might be interesting for you. It offers a possibility mix four different tracks – sounds of beach, fire, rain or something else (not vuvusella, thanks God!) and save the result as a link to share with fiends or store it into file.
Aston Villa players started coaching in the new blackcurrant training kit with FxPro logo on the front. I like it as a FxPro employee and fan of English Premier League Waiting for the possibility to get a new Aston Villa shirt.
World Cup 2010 in the South Africa is finished. I watched and enjoyed almost all games. It was a great occasion for all football fans around the world! one month of hight quality football!
