New supported release 7.3.0 "Peach-faced Lovebird"

"The rosy-faced lovebird is a fairly small bird, 17–18 cm long with an average wing length of 106 mm and tail length of 44–52 mm. Populations have been reduced in some areas by trapping for the pet trade. However numbers may have increased in other parts due to human creation of new water sources and the building of artificial structures which provide new nesting sites." -

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 7.3.0,
also known as "Peach-faced Lovebird". Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 7.3.0 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:
