RPerl v1.1 Released, Kickstarter Campaign Officially Complete!

Howdy Loyal RPerl Backers,

RPerl v1.1, codename 'Jupiter', has been released to CPAN!

Jupiter supports fully-automated compiling of the long-awaited N-body application software, which is a solar system simulator used by the Alioth Benchmark Game to rank programming languages by speed.

RPerl and the new PhysicsPerl software suite enable the N-body app to run at the speed of C++, dropping from over 19 minutes runtime to barely 13 seconds!

For now, see the INSTALL notes file for instructions on running N-body using RPerl & PhysicsPerl.

Also, take a look at the pre-release user documentation, Learning RPerl!

Please visit us on IRC for real-time tech support:

irc.perl.org

#perl11

Release of RPerl v1.1 marks 100% completion of this Kickstarter campaign, because support for the N-body application was our stretch goal achieved at $500 successful funding.

STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT EXCITING KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, COMING SOON!!!

Perling,

~ Will the Chill, rperl.org & austin.pm
