On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 6.7.0, also known
as "Grey-headed Lovebird".  Parrot (http://parrot.org/) is a virtual
machine aimed
at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 6.7.0 is available on Parrot's FTP site
(ftp://ftp.parrot.org/pub/parrot/releases/devel/6.7.0/), 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 6.7.0 News:
    - Core
        + find_codepoint: added more name aliases for perl6 (LF,FF,CR and NEL)
        + Optimize internal pcc CallContext calls from VTABLE to direct calls
          and inline CallContext ATTR accessors to omit the obj check.
[GH #1083]
    - Documentation
        + Updated documentation for StringHandle.readall and
FileHandle.readall, which
          reads just the rest of the buffer if tell > 0. [GH #1084]
    - Tests
        + Improve test plan for t/library/pg.t
    - Community
        + Our GSoC student Chirag Agrawal successfully passed the
final evaluation.
          All three project parts have been merged already.

Many thanks to all our contributors esp. our GSOC student Chirag
Agrawal for making this possible,
and our sponsors, esp. cPanel for supporting this project.  Our next
scheduled release is at 16 Sep 2014.

Enjoy!
