Perl 5.9.5 release

posted by rafael on 2007.07.09 1:53   Printer-friendly
Perl 5.9.5, the latest development release of Perl, has been uploaded to the CPAN. For a list of what's new in this version since the 5.9.4 release, see the perldelta manpage.
Here are the administrative details:
file: $CPAN/authors/id/R/RG/RGARCIA/perl-5.9.5.tar.gz
size: 15562121 bytes
 md5: caef13b075995b508085667d4011b8d6
Perl 5.9.5 aims to be the last development release of Perl 5 before the new major stable version, perl 5.10.0. That means that no new feature or important code change will go in this branch before it's stabilized; focus will be now put on regression testing and documentation improvements.

This is a development release, meaning that is must not be deployed in production. However, it is provided so it can be tested as widely as possible, on many platforms and with many CPAN modules. Of course, feedback on any problems you might discover will be welcome; for that, use the perlbug utility, or, if you want to be involved more closely in the development process of Perl 5.10, subscribe to the perl5-porters mailing list.

Many thanks to all those who have contributed patches, suggestions, advice and bug reports.
