So, it's was interesting to see the relative receptions of my last two posts. Laziness, the Catch caused a massive flurry on discussion on #perl6, and eventual plans for how to overhaul Perl 6 and Rakudo to deal with it. As far as I know, though, there's been no development in this area in Rakudo, so the scary bug is still very much present.
On the other hand, the Lazy Sieve of Eratosthenes gather / take bug is generally acknowledged, but doesn't have any momentum towards a patch at all, as far as I can see from #perl6.
On the gripping hand, at least a few of the file operators (another issue with the E03 update) now work, thanks to lue++.
It does seem like a fantastic amount of progress is being made on Rakudo at the moment. I just hope these issues get addressed before Rakudo Star.
