in reply to Parrot 0.0.9 released

First things first -- congrats to all involved, there are a lot of very smart people working very hard to get perl6 & parrot going.

I've had a mooch around the parrotcode website, in particular the todo list, but can't find a indication of what's expected to be in 0.0.10, in particular can we expect exception handling to appear?

    Now that Steve has 0.0.9 out, here's a list of the things I'd like us to work on specifically for 0.0.10. (This is separate from the bigger todo list, which is in progress)

    *) Proper building on extended integer and float machines (long doubles and such)
    *) Less reliance on the current perl install for larger floats and ints
    *) A big pruning of the warnings we currently get on some platforms
    *) More tests!
    *) Getting the PDDs better sync'd up with reality, and vice versa
    *) PMC/String introspection support enhanced
    *) Get ICU building and (hopefully) integrated

    If I manage to get either exceptions or objects defined, the release that has them will be 0.1.0. (When the other of the two is done we'll jump to 0.2.0)
