Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

[ #33343 ]

Having a new MacBook, I've immediately tried to get CPAN running on it. Regrettably, I get error messages like the following:

/opt/local/bin $ sudo cpan
Terminal does not support AddHistory.

Google hasn't been much help. What's worse, the CPAN ChangeLog doesn't really seem to match up the CPAN version with the changes. Ugh.
