The Black-headed Parrot is ... most often found in pairs or small noisy flocks of up to 10 individuals, but sometimes up to 30.
On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 4.1.0,
also known as "Black-headed Parrot". Parrot
is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.
Parrot 4.1.0 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 4.1.0 News:
- Core + Shared libraries and installable binaries are now stripped if built with --optimize on Cygwin, which greatly reduces their size on disk + New experimental PCC-related ops added to core. - Documentation + Revised 'docs/project/release_manager_guide.pod' - Tests + Parrot now uses Travis CI http://travis-ci.org + Parrot Continuous Integration (CI) with Travis CI means every commit of Parrot is now compiled and tested on gcc, g++ and clang with various Configure.pl options. + CI Notifications are sent to parrot-dev, the #parrot IRC channel and Smolder + Cardinal and Rakudo spec tests also on Travis CI
