Parrot 4.7.0 "Hispaniolan" Released!

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 4.7.0,
also known as "Hispaniolan". Parrot
is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 4.7.0 is available on Parrot's FTP
, or by following the download
. 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://

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:// parrot_foo
