Been a long few days, but Strawberry Perl April 2010 (why do I want to keep typing 2009?) is out.

Get it at http://strawberryperl.com/

Two major things have been added:

1) There is a version of Strawberry Perl that can relocate on installation - the 5.12.0 builds. 5.10.1 and 5.8.9 will still be restricted to C:\strawberry\ or D:\strawberry\, depending on the file downloaded.
2) Additional modules and scripts have been added, and everything has been updated.

Plans for July 2010 (which will only include 5.12.1 and 5.10.1 builds - April is the last official 5.8.9 build) include a "thumb-drive-portable" 5.12.1 .zip file (instead of the current 5.10.1 thumb-portable), as well as a clean-up of all the reported/encountered bugs and polishing.

If MYMETA.yml support becomes universal, the build tools for Strawberry Perl will use it, as well.

I'll try and be around on irc://irc.perl.org/win32 for a few days to take and check bug reports, but otherwise I'll be taking a break until Monday. Then I'll start work on July 2010 (or a rebuild of April 2010 if major problems are encountered.)

Soon, I'll get the merge-module documentation up and on the site (I meant to do it for January, but decided to wait until April to get it announced and documented.)

thank you

Thank you for the new strawberry 5.12 build.
I'm looking forward to the "thumb-drive-portable" 5.12.1 in July, as well.
