Rakudo Star 2020.10
Message ID:
Hello my fellow Rakoons!

I've built a new Rakudo Star using the just released 2020.10 Rakudo/NQP/MoarVM
stack. The files are available at


As always, if you find any bugs or have other feedback, please let me know, and
I'll do my best to solve it as fast as I can.

Sadly, I cannot confirm any Windows build this time around. I hoped to wait it
out for the person to build this, but his absense seems to take a little longer
than anticipated. My apologies for any inconvenience from the delays this
caused, and the lack of Windows builds.

If anyone is interested in helping out the Rakudo Star releases, hankache has
made the Windows-specific build scripts and a README available for public
use[1]. If anyone has a Windows machine out and about, it may be easier to help
out than you think!

Lastly, it appears that on some systems, the Readline module may attempt to
load, even though the system itself is using
This bug is known with the current maintainer of the module, and he is looking
into fixing it. Don't worry, it won't impact the usability of the Raku language

And with that, I wish you all happy hacking! Don't forget: if you're staying
inside having fun with Raku, you're helping out in curbing the Covid pandemic!


With kind regards,

Patrick Spek
