I am surprised that Moritz
or some other monk did not bring it up earlier on this site, but since no one did, let me report that the Rakudo Star November 2015 Release (release 2015.11) is now the official Perl 6 beta version
, as officially announced on November 28: http://rakudo.org/2015/11/28/announce-rakudo-star-release-2015-11-now-in-beta/
In addition, and perhaps more importantly, the 1.0 production version is still planned for the Christmas 2015 period: "The Rakudo Perl 6 compiler is now officially in beta for the upcoming production release around Christmas 2015.".
Great news, and a very nice Xmas present from the Perl 6 / Rakudo development teams. Thanks and congratulations to them!
