Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1478608
Last modified: 2017-09-09 19:49:46 EDT
Request for Enhancement (RFE):
Would you please consider upgrading Rakudo to 2017.07?
EPEL already has, so you may be able to use their stuff:
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Scientific Linux release 7.3 (Nitrogen)
$ rpm -qa rakudo\*
I am sorry. The plan is to wait for the rakudo release of this month.
The release announcement is:
The next release of Rakudo (#114), is tentatively scheduled for 2017-08-19.
$ bodhi updates query --packages=rakudo | grep el7
nqp-0.0.2017.07-1.el7 rpm enhancement testing 2017-08-02
moarvm-0.2017.04-1.el7 rpm enhancement stable 2017-05-14
moarvm-0.2017.02-1.el7 rpm enhancement stable 2017-03-30
Rakudo 2017.07 is currently first in the epel7 testing repository.
It take me about a half day of my leisure to build the stack (moarvm, nqp and rakudo) for at least two Fedora branches (master, f26). So please have patience to wait for the update to 2017.08.
Rakudo 2017.06 and rakudo 2017.07 both implements the production standard Perl v6.c.
moarvm-0.2017.08.1-1.fc26, nqp-0.0.2017.08-1.fc26, rakudo-0.2017.08-1.fc26 has been pushed to the Fedora 26 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Updates_Testing for
instructions on how to install test updates.
