Parrot Gets Some (News) Attention

by chromatic

Parrot pumpking Chip Salzenberg released Parrot 0.46 yesterday. Today, Ars Technica's .NET and Java to get better dynamic language support gives Parrot a fair mention. It's nice to see that the article picks up on two of Parrot's great advantages right now (PGE and TGE as well as the by-design support for agile languages), while it's interesting to compare the level of support and funding for all three projects.

(By my estimate, Microsoft's Vista programmers spend more time reading e-mail in a week than there has been paid development time on all of Perl 6 in the past five years.)
