Correct, and it will be merged into nqp/master directly after we release
nqp and rakudo this month (ETA: 1..2 days).
From the perspective of a rakudo developer, this was as smoothly as
incomptible parrot changes can be. Our users typically build parrot and
nqp with 'perl Configure --gen-parrot' in rakudo, and they currently get
a working revision (parrot 3.8.0); as soon as we want to use a new
parrot, we merge the new branch and be happy.
Kudos to all the involved parrot developers, especially Peter Lobsinger.
(in his role as rakudo <-> parrot relationship manager)
