There are 3 bugs that will be fixed in the rebuild. Two of those bugs are in the PPM support, (the third one is in the building) and the combination of them is serious enough to require a rebuild of the 5.12.0 versions of Strawberry Perl:

http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=43243 - PPM installs html files to the root directory (instead of not installing them at all)
http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=57197 - 5.10 repositories configured in 5.12.
http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=57205 - 5.12.0 contains libperl511.a, not libperl512.a (this affects PAR-Packer)

Bug #43243 affects all previous versions of Strawberry Perl, but the proposed fix does not require a rebuild for 5.8.9 and 5.10.1. Instead, a distribution can be downloaded.

This package will also fix bug #57197 for 32-bit 5.12 versions, so feel free to install it there, too, until the rebuild arrives.

HOWEVER, 64-bit 5.12 versions don't have an "old-style" PPM repository that Strawberry can use, and the version of PPM that we have only supports old-style repositories.

So a true fix for those versions will have to wait until we can code (or have contributed to us) a version of PPM that can use new-style repositories. (see bug #57197 for details.)

Bug #57205 only affects 5.12.0.0, and is the bug that truly requires the rebuild - there is no way I can create a CPAN distribution that would work to fix it.



To download the proposed PPM fix:

5.10.1/5.12.0:

Just run cpanp install http://strawberryperl.com/package/csjewell/PPM-0.01_03.tar.gz at the command prompt and the fixed version will be installed.

5.8.9:

If you have CPANPLUS installed, the previous directions should work for you as well.

If not, follow these directions instead:

lwp-download http://strawberryperl.com/package/csjewell/PPM-0.01_03.tar.gz
ptar -xzvf PPM-0.01_03.tar.gz
del PPM-0.01_03.tar.gz
cd PPM-0.01_03
cpan .
cd ..
rmdir /s /q PPM-0.01_03


If people could try this and report back how well it works for them in the next few days, it'd be appreciated.
