This shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what Perl 6 is. As far
as I know there will never be a release of Perl 6.0 (it definitely
won't be PERL6.0). Perl 6 is a specification and a set of tests. Any
program that can pass the test suite and conforms to the specification
IS a Perl 6. Right now the program that passes the most tests and
conforms most closely to the specification is Rakudo.
The most important skill a programmer can have is the ability to read.
