Yet Another Two
Wenzel P. P. Peppmeyer has written yet another two blog posts in the past week, each addressing some feature or quirk of the Raku Programming Language.
Alexey Melezhik started up two discussions: one about RakuDist/Whateverable/Alpine and one about black box testing for
The entries for Challenge #64 that have Raku solutions:
- Weekly Challenge #64 by Luca Ferrari.
- The Minimum Break with Raku by Arne Sommer.
- Minimum Sum Path and Word Break by Laurent Rosenfeld.
- Weekly Challenge #64 by Javier Luque.
- Weekly Challenge #64 by Shahed Nooshmand.
- Six Blocks away? C-c-c combo breaker! by Colin Crain.
- Weekly Challenge #64 by Jaldhar H. Vyas.
- Another Raku one-liner by Andrew Shitov (/r/rakulang comments)
Mohammad S Anwar has created two videos on how they created this week’s solutions: Challenge #1 and Challenge #2. And Challenge #65 is up for your perusal!
- Patrick Böker worked on the Azure CI integration.
- Jonathan Worthington fixed an issue with invocation handlers, and allowed for more interesting constants to be defined in
- Daniel Green added a GCC plugin for spotting missing memory frees before throws.
- Jan-Olof Hendig updated MoarVM to use
libuv1.38.0 and fixed some double frees.
- Christian Bartolomäus fixed the MoarVM build on FreeBSD.
- Nicholas Clark deleted some very old dead code in MoarVM, and removed an unnecessary indirection in the registration of lexicals.
- Elizabeth Mattijsen reworked some of the
Matchinternals for tiny efficiency improvements and fixed all of the old RT ticket references in roast.
- Mikhail Khorkov improved the conflict marker detection of Raku.
- And some other fixes, optimisations, and improvements.

With a pandemic, worldwide protesting and the climate becoming more and more erratic, we live in interesting times indeed. Long time contributor and creator of Panda, Tadeusz Sośnierz, has written a blog post about the LGBT situation in Poland, which really hit home for yours truly. So in closing, one can only say: keep healthy, keep safe and see you next week for yet another instalment of the Rakudo Weekly News!
