Entry tags: & ('February 2011') Release Candidate 1 is up.

If there are no problems reported in 5-7 days, these will become the officially blessed releases of Strawberry Perl.

If you're not willing to test, go to strawberryperl.com and use the links on the front page (these aren't linked there yet, and won't be until official blessing.)

If you are, here they are! 32-bit:

http://www.strawberryperl.com/downloads/ 64-bit:

http://www.strawberryperl.com/download/ portable:

http://www.strawberryperl.com/download/ (32-bit only, installs to C:\strawberry)

http://www.strawberryperl.com/download/ (32-bit only, installs to D:\strawberry)


I'll work on the release notes and such over the next few days.

Download links are broken

The download links are broken. They should be "/download/" without the letter s.

Thanks for Strawberry Perl!

Upgraded a WinXP VM machine, seems fine form:

perl -v
perl -e "print 'hello world'"

I still get the "MsiExec.exe has encountered an error and needs to close" message popup during the install.

Also the 'README' box was ticked at the end but didn't open (I think this was the same on the current version as well).

a2p missing?

Seems a2p (http://perldoc.perl.org/a2p.html) is missing in 5.12.3 (don't think it was there in 5.12.2 either).

I've been told it's in 5.10.1 and it is in 5.12.3: http://search.cpan.org/~rjbs/perl-5.12.3/x2p/a2p.pod

Maybe intentional
