I still hold hope to build something fun and interesting in Perl6 sometime in the next couple years.

Hyper-operators, advanced type declarations and all the goodness that makes Perl Perl is still attractive to me even after years of doing mostly Ruby (after about 10 years of mostly Perl).

This release contains fixes I submitted, and I would like to call out how welcoming and supportive the Perl 6 community was during the process.

Also, the fact that Perl6 is written in Perl6 made contributing especially easy.
