So just to let these readers to know, there are going to be a number of tech-events with Perl content where you could help out.
If you are interested what people write about it go and check out the Padre related blogs.
If you also write about it sometimes, please let us know on #padre so we can add your blog too.
While it does not have the same database backend but I hope on a wiki it will be easier to maintain and keep the list and the links up to date.
In order to make them really useful we should categorize them and make sure the links are correct etc.
I started doing it but your help will be appreciated.
I hope if the list is cleaned up we'll be able to ask the maintainers of the lists.perl.org site to replace that with a link to the TPF wiki page.
I sent him a mail over 2 weeks ago with no response. If you know him, could you please contact him so I can get his blessing?
Our product is perl, CPAN modules and applications written in Perl.
Let's look at the CPAN modules:
Our distribution channels are Linux/*BSD/Unix and other OS vendors who distributed binary versions of some CPAN modules. ActiveState and a few volunteers who distribued
CPAN(PLUS)?.pm are doing fine but even with the recent improvements on Debian and Fedora there are still too few modules packaged and distributed by most of the vendors.
The most important change is the new and nice Plugin Manager thanks to Jerome Quelin. We also have a brand new Polish translation thanks to Cezary Morga (THEREK) and we found why the Simplified Chinese translation of Fayland Lam did not show up and fixed it.
Padre can be installed from CPAN.
The ppm package for MS Windows has been updated.
An experimental binary (executable) version for 32 bit Linux can be downloaded from our binary download section with the 64 bit version following later.
Further download instructions can be found on our download page
Now that Hinrik suggested a GSoc project developing psi, a command line tool written in Perl 6 to get the Perl 6 documentation. As I believe many developers especially will prefer a GUI over the command line, I really would like to have that integrated with Padre.
So I quickly wrote a sample plugin for Padre that actually is written in Perl 6.
In a few hours from now Padre::Plugin::PSI will be available on CPAN.
ps. I know it does not do anything interesting, just counting bytes but it does it in Perl 6.
