Perl 5.10.1 RC2 released

posted by rafael on 2009.08.19 2:28   Printer-friendly
Perl 5.10 Release Candidate 2 has been released, two (busy) weeks after the RC1. As Dave Mitchell, the 5.10 pumpking, says, I'm not planning to change anything between now and final release unless it's a real showstopper; so, help making sure there are no showstoppers left before the final release!
As usual, the full list of changes is in the perldelta; and here is a list of significant fixes since RC1:
  • NDBM_File sometimes wasn't built
  • Many library files were installed into the wrong directories
  • Deparsing was slow (fixed by removing const deparsing)
  • Safe could emit a spurious "used once" warning
  • "cpan -r" didn't work
  • allow Perl_die_nocontext() to be called with a NULL format
  • some Windows build fixes
  • perlbug reported spurious patch lists
  • Configure added duplicate config args in
  • readline(BAREHANDLE) was broken
  • Module::Build version bumped to 0.340201
  • perlfaq pages updated

Please report any problems you encounter, especially bugs introduced since 5.10.0. Whenever possible, please report bugs using the perlbug utility. If the build or regression tests fail, make nok. If the build fails to early to run this, please mail perlbug at directly.
