Allison Randal informs us that she has "...just signed an agreement with O'Reilly that assigns the full copyright in the book Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials to The Perl Foundation. The text is out-of-date, but can be updated much more rapidly than it can be rewritten from scratch." The contents of the book will soon be available via the perl.org Subversion server (svn.perl.org).
Many thanks to O'Reilly for this generous gift to the Perl community, and to the original authors for their hard work in producing the book in the first place.
