Parrot 1.0.0 "Haru Tatsu" Released!

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom...

What you've got they can't deny it
Can't sell it, can't buy it
Walk on...

— U2, "Walk On"

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 1.0.0 "Haru Tatsu." Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.
