You may think I'm about to talk about swashbuckling and high seas adventures, but I'm not. If you already know I'm about to talk about Perl, Python, and Lua, then you're at least as big a geek as I am. :)
I was browsing around for Lua information and learned that the Lua team is targetting a version, named Monkey, for release on the new Parrot VM. This is the first I've heard of it, but apparently Parrot is a new virtual machine that Perl 6 is being built for, but it's an independent project that will be able to run other languages. Pirate is Python's port and there's an implementation of the new Perl 6 standard called Pugs. So we have Pugs and Pirate ports of Perl and Python to Parrot. And someone brought a Monkey to the party. (I think I can hear Rowne chuckling.)
I don't know any of the design team on these projects, but they all must have a warped sense of humor. Here are some links for those interested. I'm trying to figure out how to run Pugs. I'm a Perl fan, so I'm anxious to see what's new.
