ZeroMQ support out of the box! Still in beta, but API-wise it should be fairly stable.
Which almost let me forget that Jonathan actually did another presentation, named ”How does deoptimization help us go faster”, and other questions you were sensible enough not to ask (slides), which gives you a good impression of the problems you get when you try to develop a fast dynamic language with precompilation features. Videos of either presentation are not available yet at this time, but should be soon!
That in short seems to be the general tone of the 233 comments (so far) about last week’s Perl 6 Weekly, spread over three reddits: r/perl, r/perl6 and r/programming. Fortunately, there were some positive comments as well. Ah well, the caravan of butterflies moves on.
Monthly Bug Squash Day

Didn’t have time to really see what other core developments we had the past week. Since many of the core developers were on the road or visiting conferences or otherwise in a vacation mood (with a few notable exceptions, though), it feels safe to keep whatever the developments were until a 2-week overview next week. See you then for more Rakudo Perl 6 news!
