Core Developments

RakuAST developments this week:

  • Elizabeth Mattijsen in Rakudoc: fixed issues with implicit code blocks, legacy pod rendering, configuration in pod blocks, balanced use of markup openers/closers inside markup. Also implemented support for CHECK phasers, as well as DOC BEGIN | CHECK | INIT phasers.
  • Stefan Seifert fixed an issue with the fallback resolver looking in wrong scopes.
  • The number of passing test-files with the new Raku grammar are now 138/150 (make test +0) and 808/1355 (make spectest +8).
