I'm a sucker for bright shiny new things. So I just coulndt resist the call of bright shiny 5.8.1 download.
Its happened before, you think everything will go swimmingly, that little annoying bug that you've had to work around will be fixed, and you'll be able to lie back in the state of smug self satisfaction thats usually reserved for LISP programmers. But then reality bites.
It could have been worse, only three of my 'daily use' modules refuse to compile under 5.8.1, but what a downer it is. My bright shiny new download has been tarnished, it didnt quite sort my life out, it might have fixed any number of annoying little bugs, but it brings its own new annoying little bugs with it.
Never mind I'm sure 5.8.2 will prove to be the grand solution to all my problems.
