Padre 0.13 released

[ #37748 ]
I am happy to announce the latest release of Padre, the Perl IDE. There are many changes as listed in the Changes file

The major outline is

  • Lots of code improvements
  • Many bugs fixed such as
    • newlines on MS Windows
    • the internal windows now resize correctly
    • run scripts seem to work again
    • and it chdir-s to the scripts directory
  • ... and new bugs were added

You can download and install it from a nearby CPAN mirror. More detailed instructions can be found on Download

Windows users might want to download the latest Strawberry Perl release ( as it already supports Wx installation without the extra manual work earlier releases required.

  • When running a Perl file, chdir to the dir of the file seems obvious, but it isn't in all cases. There are a couple of scenarios you need to support when you "run" a perl file.

    The most common mistake seems to be to ignore @INC and just leave it as is. But that only works for the simplest script with no application classes.

    This is the default config section of PerlySense for determining how and where to run something from:

    #These are evaluated in order to find a way to run a file. First
    #match is used.
