On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 6.1.0, also known as "Black-collared Lovebird". Parrot (http://parrot.org/) is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.
Parrot 6.1.0 is available on Parrot's FTP site (ftp://ftp.parrot.org/pub/parrot/releases/devel/6.1.0/), or by following the download instructions at http://parrot.org/download. For those who would like to develop on Parrot, or help develop Parrot itself, we recommend using Git to retrieve the source code to get the latest and best Parrot code. Parrot 6.1.0 News: - Build + Improve auto::libffi probe with -fstack-protector-all or -fstack-protector-strong with recent GCC and OpenBSD's toolchains - Documentation + Replace perldoc by a new podextract.pl [GH #1028, #973, #520], which fixes problems with 'sudo make install' generated ops pods as root. Warnings: - Latest nqp does not support the new packfile API yet, replacing EvalPMC. - This release of Parrot fails to build out-of-the-box under Bison 3, e.g. on Fedora 20. For workarounds see https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/1031 The SHA256 message digests for the downloadable tarballs are: 87d25119c73acdb26f89ac4c68d73f3d996451ada51f3cb2cd4878b6f0e0a34c parrot-6.1.0.tar.gz bb1294ad2a7d5b3c4688fc736fb775e94ecfe35fdc072a2631c2080eb5f366f7 parrot-6.1.0.tar.bz2 Many thanks to all our contributors for making this possible, and our sponsors for supporting this project. Esp. cPanel for the time and Erin Schoenhals for sponsoring her old Macbook G4 powerpc to update the native_pbc's. I've also updated all the missing old documentations on parrot.github.io Our next scheduled release is 18 Mar 2014. Enjoy! -- Reini Urban http://cpanel.net/ http://www.perl-compiler.org/
