21:56 FROGGS ***ALL*** FYI, the windows msi packages are now available for 2016.01 - http://rakudo.org/downloads/star/

21:58 timotimo <3
21:58 timotimo awesome
21:58 timotimo NOTE: the Rakudo Star with 6.c Christmas Perl 6 release is not yet available. Check back soon or try one of the older versions.
21:58 timotimo this note from "how to get rakudo" can go, then
21:59 FROGGS I dunno where that note is
22:00 timotimo i think i can remove it
22:01 timotimo http://rakudo.org/how-to-get-rakud‚Äčo/#Installing-Rakudo-Star-Windows
22:01 perlpilot timotimo++
22:06 jnthn FROGGS++
22:06 FROGGS :o)
22:07 FROGGS jnthn: the installer conditionally sets the path now btw
22:07 FROGGS there is a checkbox on the second page of the install wizard
22:07 FROGGS that was the solution to not have to install scripts into a single bin directory
22:09 timotimo is there a simple way to choose the drive letter it gets installed to?
22:09 FROGGS no
22:09 FROGGS would be easy for the installer
22:09 FROGGS but rakudo itself is not relocatable
22:10 FROGGS we would need to turn all absolute paths into relatives to achieve that I think
22:11 jnthn FROGGS: Nice! That'll help a good bit
22:13 timotimo OK
22:22 lizmat jnthn: what would be against making all paths in precomp files relative to the precomp dir, allowing for the precomp dir to be moved ?
22:24 jnthn lizmat: I don't know. :) Maybe nothing. nine++ knows that code a lot better than I do these days, so can probably give a better answer.
22:25 lizmat ok, will discuss with nine tomorrow
22:26 timotimo https://twitter.com/loltimo‚Äč/status/695370469462048768 - tweeted about the msi; feel free to signal boost this tweet or formulate your own
