2017.32 Weekly 101

So, one day you start writing the Perl 6 Weekly. And before you know it, you’ve done a 100 of them. Which was last week. Yours truly hopes to be writing many more of these. Well, as long as you readers let me 🙂


Yes, the famous Perl 6 Introduction website now also has an Italian version: Perl 6 Introduizone. Of course, if Italian is not your thing, you might want to try: Bulgarian, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese or Spanish!

Core Developments

  • Most of the visible developments this week came from all of the work that Jonathan Worthington has done revamping a lot of MoarVM internals, which he describes in his most recent blog post. Apart from that, he also fixed some race conditions in the implementation of supply and whenever.
  • Nick Logan improved Version smartmatch with uneven lengths.
  • Stefan Seifert optimised NativeCall quite a bit.
  • And many other smaller fixes and improvements.
