On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 6.1.0, also known as "Black-collared Lovebird". Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.
Parrot 6.1.0 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
To clone the Parrot Git repo into a directory called 'parrot', use the following:
git clone git://github.com/parrot/parrot.git
If you want it to be in a directory other than 'parrot', then just give that as a second argument to clone:
git clone git://github.com/parrot/parrot.git parrot_foo
Parrot 6.1.0 News:
+ Improve auto::libffi probe with -fstack-protector-all or
-fstack-protector-strong with recent GCC and OpenBSD’s toolchains
+ Replace perldoc by a new podextract.pl [GH #1028, #973, #520], which fixes
problems with 'sudo make install' generated ops pods as root.
- Latest nqp does not support the new packfile API yet, replacing EvalPMC.
- This release of Parrot fails to build out-of-the-box under Bison 3, e.g. on Fedora 20.
For workarounds see GH #1031
