On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 7.5.0, also known as "Yellow-collared Lovebird". Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.
Parrot 7.5.0 News:
- Core + Optimize mod_i_* ops and Integer pmc to avoid util_intval_mod + Coverity bugs fixed: = missing_comma in optimizer.c = nesting_indent_mismatch in runcore/subprof.c = insecure chroot in platform/generic/file.c - Tests + Remove executable file permissions from some .t files - Community + Coverity static analysis scans of the Parrot source code have resumed. Many thanks for providing the service to the open-source community!
Parrot 7.5.0 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://github.com/parrot/parrot.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://github.com/parrot/parrot.git parrot_foo
The SHA256 message digests for the downloadable tarballs are:
