kurila 0.1 released


This is the first development release of kurila, a geneticly modified perl.


Perl Kurila is a dialect of Perl. With Perl 5 as ancestor it has a
solid base, but without the backwards compatibility
requirement of Perl 5, it is free to evolve into new directions.


A longer explanation of kurila is available at
http://dev.tty.nl/static/kurila-0.1/pod/kurilaintro.html


kurila 0.1 is available on 
http://dev.tty.nl/static/kurila-0.1.tar.gz
And should become available on CPAN.
Or use git to get the latest version:
cg-clone git://dev.tty.nl/perl#kurila


New features:
+ Lexical scoped byte vs codepoint semantics
+ Strings are internally always encoded using UTF-8
+ Removal of indirect object syntax
+ Removal of formats

Known bugs:
+ Documentation
+ Limited platform support


http://dev.tty.nl/static/kurila-0.1/pod/kurila01delta.html
has a more complete list of the changes.


Standing on the shoulders of a red giant to face the future.
