There's much, much more -- #perl6 is still working on the ChangeLog as of this writing. Compared to 6.2.12, Pugs is definitely approaching the Hey, what was the big deal? stage now...

---------------------

Well, I'll just note here that the axis on your chart is "community goodwill", and I'm assuming that goodwill means the wider community.

I still see the wider community treating Perl 6 like Duke Nukem Forever and being quite vicious about it.

Personally, I don't think we reach "What was the big deal" until at some point in time (and lets go with this Christmas at this point) someone (you, Larry, etc) stamp "Perl 6 Alpha" on a release and get your slashdot/digg/et-al headline.

I think that's the point at which we start to get that goodwill back up there.

Is the Amazon visit public? I work in downtown Seattle and would love to attend the talk. Also, I know some folks who work there, so if it's a 'by invite' thing, I might still be elligable.

I'm also happy to see you posting again. I frequently use your posts to explain to people how very alive the Perl6 and related projects are.

Adam: Point very well taken (and agreed).

"Perl 6 Alpha" will denote the spec, not any particular implementation version. Having some assurance that the core language won't change drastically and break all your programs (which is what -alpha would mean to me) is certainly a very good way to encourage adoption.

Robert: I think it's two private talks on the 27th. And thanks for your encouragement. :-)
