On behalf of the perl5 porters, ...
UPDATE: as not all porters follow PerlMonks, and I am no Windows expert, nor do I hope to become one, please post FAIL reports to email@example.com where they get a higher number of qualified eyes. Thanks.
But then Australia is such a difficult country to keep track of. On my first visit, some years ago, I passed the time on the long flight reading a history of Australian politics in the twentieth century, wherein I encountered the startling fact that in 1967 the prime minister, Harold Holt, was strolling along a beach in Victoria when he plunged into the surf and vanished. No trace of the poor man was ever seen again. This seemed doubly astounding to me—first that Australia could just _lose_ a prime minister (I mean, come on) and second that news of this had never reached me.
I've just uploaded the first release candidate for Perl 5.14.0 to PAUSE. Shortly, you'll find it at:
While we go to lengths to ensure that new versions of Perl don't break
existing programs, it does happen. It's really, really important that
we catch unintentional breakage BEFORE we release Perl 5.14.0.
It is imperative that you test this release candidate with any software
written in Perl which you use or maintain.
Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
