Rakudo Star is aimed at "early adopters" of Perl 6. We know that it still
has some bugs, it is far slower than it ought to be, and there are some
advanced pieces of the Perl 6 language specification that aren't implemented
yet. But Rakudo Perl 6 in its current form is also proving to be viable (and
fun) for developing applications and exploring a great new language. These
"Star" releases are intended to make Perl 6 more widely available to
programmers, grow the Perl 6 codebase, and gain additional end-user feedback
about the Perl 6 language and Rakudo's implementation of it.
