All releases of Parrot

Release Notes: This release adds an init_pmc method to PackFileView. It adds source lines from 'docs/index/book.json' to 'index.json' to make the display of 'Parrot Developer's Guide: PIR (draft)' more like the other books, e.g., 'PCT Book'. 'docs/index/book.json' has been removed as unnecessary. 'sudo make install' permission errors have been improved by using File::Copy::cp.

          Release Notes: This release adds Key and Iterator refactoring, major pbc_to_exe-generated code speed improvements, a new "Infinite Memory" GC core for demonstration purposes, gc_debug runcore and GC-related heisenbugfixes, simplification of PMC generation code, improved GC encapsulation and API documentation, and substantial optimizations in NCI. It eliminates variable expansion in parrot_config, fixes the installed pbc_to_exe, allows hashes to use native types as keys and values, and processes CLI arguments as Unicode by default.
