Strawberry Perl: 329 downloads in two weeks

[ #30433 ]

I happened to check the vanillaperl logs and found that Strawberry Perl 5.8.8 Alpha 1 was downloaded 329 times in the first two weeks after its release on July 9. I didn't really have any expectations, but that was a welcome surprise.

However, now I want to challenge those 329 people to start giving some feedback. We've had a handful of new bug reports filed on various CPAN modules, leading to several fixes, including big things like DateTime. Andreas König has contributed a developer release of that will fix some annoyances as well.

But we want more! More feedback and more users.

If you've used Strawberry Perl, please take a moment to add your thoughts to the Strawberry Perl Feedback page at

If you haven't used it, download Alpha 1 today from
