The Vanilla Perl Project

The Vanilla Perl Project is a community-based effort to provide binary Perl distributions for the Microsoft Windows operating system that include a bundled compiler. Bundling a compiler provides the ability to install XS CPAN modules directly from CPAN.

While releases are still only officially at the alpha stage, Vanilla Perl and its sibling, Strawberry Perl, are the closest thing to Perl on Unix, and are being used on a daily basis by a number of major CPAN authors and Perl personalities when they need to work with Perl on Windows. Among its notable achievements, it is the only Windows-based Perl known to support v6.pm — the experimental Perl 6 on Perl 5 bootstrap compiler.

David Golden, core developer and release manager, will give an overview of the project's history, status and roadmap as well as a quick guide to getting started, with hints and tips for things that work and things that are still under development.
