2017.09 The IOs Are A-Changin’

Zoffix Znet has started working on the IO Standardization Grant for real. And his first grant report brings us many goodies apart from what he’s been up to so far. Worth a read! He also put up a more visible message to warn us of the coming changes.

Help Moritz

Moritz Lenz is looking for feedback with regards to the cover of his Perl 6 By Example book: tell him which ones you like from this list!

Other Core developments

  • Jonathan Worthington fixed several segfaults and panics.
  • Zoffix Znet fixed several infiniloops related to methods in the Cool class. He also fixed an issue with thunking of notandthen, as well as a precision loss when using cmp involving Rationals and Ints, and fixed some issues with Rat/FatRat.
  • Daniel Green did a lot of smaller optimizations in nqp, related to subs and methods returning Nil.
  • Elizabeth Mattijsen made % about 8x faster, and %% about 14x faster, at least for the Int/Int case. She also made the creation of Junctions about 20% faster, and fixed self-referential assignments of hashes.
  • And many more smaller fixes and optimizations.
