The inchstones are falling like 1F030—1F09F as Samantha makes further progress on her grant to improve the robustness of Unicode support in Rakudo.

In her complete blog post, she describes:

  • Implementation of a fully working Unicode Collation Algorithm with only 82 of 190,377 tests failing

  • 100% of Emoji 4.0 emoji are treated as a single grapheme, enabling MoarVM to advertise full Unicode 9.0/Emoji 4.0 text segmentation support.

  • A number of other improvements and fixes, including significant concatenation improvements and technical performance improvements.

Let me start out by apologizing for the delay in this posting, it's highly overdue; the question of whether or not funding was available turned out to be slightly more complicated than anyone anticipated....

This is a monthly report by Tony Cook on his grant under Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. We thank the TPF sponsors to make this grant possible.

Dave Mitchell recently requested an extension of his Maintaining Perl 5 grant.

I'm pleased to announce that the Board of Directors approved extension of another $20,000. It'll allow him to dedicate another 333 hours to this work.

I would like to thank the community members who took time to comment on this grant extension request and our sponsors who made funding the grant possible through our Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund.

I also appreciate Dave Mitchell, who publishes regular progress report on his work.

I am pleased to announce that the TPF Board of Directors approved the grant proposal Zefram maintaining the Perl 5 Core. This will allow him to dedicate 200 hours to the work.

I appreciate TPF donors who made this possible and all the people who gave us feedback on this grant.

I hope Zefram's work will benefit the community.

The Grants Committee is accepting grant proposals all the time. We evaluate them every two months and another evaluation period has come.
