Perl 5.9.4 is out

posted by rafael on 2006.08.15 11:02   Printer-friendly
Perl 5.9.4, the latest development release of Perl 5, is currently propagating to CPAN. It's a major step towards the release of Perl 5.10.
Here are the administrative details:
 file: $CPAN/authors/id/R/RG/RGARCIA/perl-5.9.4.tar.gz
 size: 14298383 bytes
  md5: a98e0af9f221362227c813bff69e4e91
For a list of what's new in this release, see the perl594delta man page. For what's left for 5.10.0, see the perltodo man page.

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.
