Rakudo Star - "early adopter" Perl 6, released

Programming 4

masak (1866852) writes "The developers of Rakudo, an actively developed implementation of Perl 6, give you their first "Rakudo Star" release. Quoting the announcement: '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.' It's been a long wait, and not everything is in place yet, but Perl 6 is definitely feeling less vapor-y today."

We're getting closer and closer to real usefulness.

I already see a few specific use cases where I want to use Perl 6 rather than anything else, simply because of a nice combination of ease-of-typing and ease-of-understanding.

The Welcome Rakudo Star [perl.com] post on the new Perl.com explains some of the motivations for the Star releases and why this is such a big milestone for Perl in general.

Can't wait to try it. :)
Although I rather like Perl 5, Rakudo Star is still very interesting.
