Formal deprecation of GraphViz V 2.19 - Use GraphViz2

With the help of a pull request from Patrice Clement (as part of the CPAN Request Challenge) I've released GraphViz V 2.19. This does not involve any code or documentation changes, since the module's docs already warned users that it was deprecated. Rather, it adds the x-deprecated flag to META.json and META.yml. I added .gitignore to MANIFEST.SKIP.

What should Rakudo-js aim for first?

I'm considering applying for a TPF grant to allow me to fully focus on working on getting Rakudo to target JS. To focus the grant application (and pin down the deliverables) I need to choose a use case for rakudo-js to focus on. Possible ones (ideas for new ones are appreciated).

  • running a single page app in a browser (using react.js/jquery or just vanilla js).
  • running on top of node.js
  • running on top of react.native on a mobile phone
  • exploring Perl 6 in your browser (having a awesome REPL, being able to execute snippets etc.)

Nominate Perl heroes for the 2015 White Camel Awards

We're looking for nominations for the 2015 White Camel Awards that recognize significant non-technical achievement in Perl and its community. Each year we recognize work in the broad categories of community, advocacy, and user groups. These people keep the Perl community going and deserve to be recognized!

White Camel in Your Face
To nominate someone, you can send me a name and your reasoning through any means you like. Reply here, post on Twitter (note @briandfoy_perl or use the #whitecamelaward tag so I'll find it), send me email, hire landscapers to write out the names in tulips then take an aerial photo you post to instagram, or something more creative. Note, however, that the method of nomination does not factor into our decision!
