On behalf of the Parrot team, I’m proud to announce Parrot 3.10.0, also known as “Apple Pi”. Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 3.10.0 is available on Parrot’s FTP site, or by following the download instructions at http://parrot.org/download. For those who would like to develop on Parrot, or help develop Parrot itself, we recommend using Git to retrieve the source code to get the latest and best Parrot code.

Parrot 3.10.0 News:

- Core
    + The mark VTABLE was added to the Select PMC
    + The Parrot::Embed Perl 5 module was removed from parrot.git and now lives
        at https://github.com/parrot/parrot-embed
    + A set_random method was added to the Integer PMC, so random numbers can
        be generated without needing to load math dynops
    + A new implementation of green threads was added to Parrot, in preparation
    for a robust hybrid threading system. Green threads are currently
    not available on Windows.
- Languages
    + Winxed
      - 'multi' modifier improved
      - throw "string" now emits throw instead of die
      - several optimizations in generated code

Many thanks to all our contributors for making this possible, and our sponsors for supporting this project. Our next scheduled release is 20 December 2011.
