Apr. 30th, 2010

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.)
