New release 7.11.0 "Amazonian parrotlet"

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 7.11.0, also known as "Amazonian parrotlet". Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 7.11.0 News:

    - Build
        + Improve darwin and cygwin build, seperate installable libparrot.
          GH #1212, 1096
        + Honor --disable-rpath on darwin, skip -install_name then
        + Update default cygwin compiler and linker to gcc with 1.7
        + Add darwin and windows smokers (travis + appveyor), prev. linux only
        + use a smaller default target: core (most parrot_utils, not all)
          make all builds now all, including docs and installables

Parrot 7.11.0 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:

    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

The SHA256 message digests for the downloadable tarballs are:
