Special Release: Parrot 2.1.1

Earlier today we got a bug report from the #perl6 folks that Parrot was leaking memory. chromatic put a fix together and it was decided to cut an emergency bug-fix release. Since Rakudo bases it's releases on the previous Parrot release, and they can't really put out a release that is known to leak memory, they now have the special Parrot 2.1.1.

So if you were using 2.1.0 for your application and would like to plug a memory leak in long-running programs, please update to 2.1.1 instead.
