Lories and lorikeets (tribe Lorini) are small to medium-sized arboreal
parrots characterized by their specialized brush-tipped tongues for feeding
on nectar of various blossoms and soft fruits, preferably berries.
(Parrots that eat like hummingbirds!)
On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 6.8.0, also known as "Little Lorikeet". Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.
Parrot 6.8.0 is available on Parrot's FTP site, or by following the download instructions. For those who want to hack on Parrot or languages that run on top of Parrot, we recommend our organization page on GitHub, or you can go directly to the official Parrot Git repo on Github
