    I've just downloaded Rakudo and started playing with it. It's a very nice piece of software, and given the power and elegance of the Parrot Compiler Tools, it's wonderful to see something making large-scale use of it.

    However, it should be noted that Rakudo really isn't at the point that people should expect to grab it and start hacking on Perl 6 code. It parses a good chunk of the language, but if you're looking to get your feet wet writing P6 you'll probably just end up breaking your keyboard every time it gives you a nonsensical error.

    Still, very impressive!

    Once I have more hands-on with it, I'll throw some thoughts up on essays.ajs.com
