I've been running the new Strawberry Perl alpha 2 for 24 hours now.
I have to say it feels terribly "done", and most of the credit goes to David Golden for working on it so consistently to get it to this point.
CPAN::Reporter feels a little clunky to get set up still, but it works properly and I'm already sending off streams of reports as I reinstall my normal modules. And with the optional author CC feature, this time around I can automate the emails to bug authors to fix their one last tiny bug so we can get them green on Win32.
The irc.perl.org #win32 team continues to test and track various high-use CPAN modules. And if you happen to have co-maint on one of the major modules we are tracking, we'd really appreciate it if you could take a look at the Vanilla Problem Modules page and see if you can resolve the problem. Most of the bugs are tiny and easily fixed, if you can find a tuit.
