I updated the Cygwin distribution to parrot-2.3.0-1 and rakudo-201004-1.

"When will Perl 6 be finished?"
We will make an "official", intermediate, useful and usable release of 
Perl 6 (an appropriate subset, called "Rakudo Star") by Spring 2010, 
estimated 2010Q2 (not this release). This will be called rakudo-star, 
which will be rakudo (the compiler) plus modules.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Editors"
or "Text" and then click on the appropriate fields until the above
announced version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.
