PDQ 5.0 is on the Launch Pad

PDQ (Pretty Damn Quick) major release 5.0 is on the launch pad at Cape SourceForge. Because of a potential collision with the North Korean ICBM/satellite launch, we won't be filling the main liquid-hydrogen tank until next week (we don't want PDQ blamed for starting WW3). Of course, if you hijack the capsule ahead of time, we can't stop you, but be aware that you might not make it to full earth orbit. :-)

The mission for PDQ 5.0 includes exploration of:
  • Multiserver queues as defined in Ch. 6 of the Perl::PDQ book
  • Integration with an installed R package
PDQ-R examples have been blogged previously. Please standby for the countdown ... Update: PDQ 5.0 was launched successfully on Thursday, April 9, 2009.
