$1700 Worth Of RPerl Success!

Posted by Will Braswell (Creator)

Howdy RPerl Benefactors,


79 different people contributed a total of $1,701 to help make RPerl a reality.  Give yourselves a round of applause!

We have achieved our base goal as well as 2 additional stretch goals, this is awesome!  Here are the 3 scheduled software releases funded by this Kickstarter campaign:

  • Dec 25, 2013: RPerl v1.0 Released On Github
  • Jan 1, 2014: RPerl v1.0 Released On CPAN
  • Feb 1, 2014: Alioth Shootout Benchmark App Released On Github

Be sure to keep your eye on for official progress reports.  After RPerl v1.0 is complete and released, we'll consider launching a second Kickstarter campaign to fund RPerl v2.0, so stay tuned!

Thanks again to all our backers, y'all are THE BEST!
