Message ID:
On behalf of the Parrot team I'm proud to announce the Parrot 0.1.1

Parrot 0.1.1 is an intermediate release with tons of updates and fixes.

  - Python support: Parrot runs 4/7 of the pie-thon test suite
  - Better OS support: more platforms, compilers, OS functions
  - Improved PIR syntax for method calls and <op>= assignment
  - Dynamic loading reworked including a "make install" target
  - MMD - multi method dispatch for binary vtable methods
  - Library improvement and cleanup
  - BigInt, Complex, *Array, Slice, Enumerate, None PMC classes
  - IA64 and hppa JIT supprt
  - Tons of fixes, improvements, new tests, and documentation updates.

A lot is unfinished and keeps changing. Nethertheless Parrot is stable
and usable at the surface, while internals are moving.
