	Captain:	Wake me at the first sign of trouble.
	Ennesby:	By my count you've been awake for more than two days now.
	Captain:	Fine. Wake me if there's a _fire_.
	Ennesby:	Sixty-one hours. Almost _three_ days.
	Captain:	Okay, wake me if there are _people_ on fire.
	Ennesby:	You're not twenty-five anymore. You need to sleep this off.
	Captain:	Wake me if _I'm_ on fire.

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 7.8.0, also known
as "Military Macaw".  Parrot (http://parrot.org/) is a virtual machine aimed
at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 7.8.0 is available on Parrot's FTP site
(ftp://ftp.parrot.org/pub/parrot/releases/devel/7.8.0/), 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.
