May your pleasures be many, your troubles be few.

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 6.0.0, also known
as "Red-necked Amazon". Parrot (http://parrot.org/) is a virtual machine aimed
at running all dynamic languages.
Parrot 6.0.0 is available on Parrot's FTP site
(ftp://ftp.parrot.org/pub/parrot/releases/supported/6.0.0/), or by following the
download instructions at http://parrot.org/download. For those who would like
to develop on Parrot, or help develop Parrot itself, we recommend using Git to
retrieve the source code to get the latest and best Parrot code.
Parrot 6.0.0 News:
+ Fixed bad IPv6 examples in pdd22_io, thanks to Zefram++ [GH#1005]
+ Fixed failure in t/configure/062-sha1.t.
+ Updated to Unicode 6.3 (libicu5.2): U+180e Mongolian Vowel Separator
is no whitespace anymore [GH #1015]
The SHA256 message digests for the downloadable tarballs are:
Many thanks to all our contributors for making this possible, and our sponsors
for supporting this project. Our next scheduled release is 18 Feb 2014.
