2022.12 Releasomatic

Justin DeVuyst has done it again: the Rakudo Compiler Release 2022.03 is now available, binary releases have been made available by Patrick Böker, and the Linux packages by Claudio Ramirez should also be available soon. No exciting new features, mostly maintenance and some nice-to-haves this time.

Did You Know?

That in the Raku Programming Language you can create character classes that exclude certain characters? For instance, the character class <[\d]-[7]> would accept all numeric values, except 7. In natural language: create a character class by starting with <[ consisting of all numeric values \d] except a characters class -[ consisting of 7, ending the character class with ]> .


Weekly Challenge #157 is available for your perusal.
