To begin with, I’ve made a post for Perl 6 Advent Calendar. If you were wondering why it was late, I will tell you - it’s actually early. Somebody else has claimed article for eighth day and forgot to upload it, so somebody had to put replacement article. I’ve moved my article from 12th day to 8th day, just so Perl 6 Advent Calendar could be continued. Moritz, to protect against that, put the just-in-case article about exceptions (it’s exceptional), if that would happen again.
Enough talking about Perl 6 Advent Calendar, as obviously this blog post isn’t about it. Every week, I describe changes in Perl 6 and its implementations. This is yet another article about changes.
Jonathan Worthington lately was working on improving syntax errors messages in Rakudo Perl. Now they are better and more accurate, just like they’re already in STD.pm6 or Niecza.
.joinmethod isn’t O(N4) anymore.
~infix operator is faster.
