Parrot Grant Update - August and September

Here's the latest Parrot Grant Update ...

In August and September, Allison has been working on the PDD for IO, which she expects to finish sometime in October or November. Because IO, events, and threads are so inter-related, some of the IO work will spill over into work on the PDDs for events and threads as well.

Parrot 0.4.6 was released on August 9. It includes support for several new languages, notably Ruby and Javascript, as well as updates for many of the existing support languages. It also includes updates to the work on namespaces, based on completed namespace PDD.

Leo has now taken a full-time job, and as a result will have less free time to spend on Parrot development in the future.

No milestone payments were made for this grant period.
