Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world...
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
  —William Yates, The Second Coming

I've got 3 release announcements to do:

  1. Strawberry Perl January 2010.

    It's been out for over a week - I really should start writing these release announcements beforehand. This is an "upgrade version" - The only new module is GDBM_File. There are a number of non-user-facing internals changes, however. Things just got too busy over the holidays to do the user-facing changes that were planned. is at: http://strawberry-perl.googlecode.com/files/strawberry-perl-
    Other releases are mentioned at: http://strawberryperl.com/releases.html

  2. "Strawberry Perl plus Padre" 0.56.

    This is the new version of what has been previously called "Padre Standalone". In this case, it's been updated to the latest versions of both Strawberry Perl and Padre.

    http://strawberryperl.com/download/padre/strawberry-plus-padre-0.56.msi http://strawberryperl.com/download/padre/strawberry-plus-padre-0.56.zip

  3. "Merge Module" for Strawberry Perl.

    We're starting to build a merge module that can be used in other Windows Installer packages. The infrastructure to do this was one of the things that got added to Strawberry Perl in this version.

    If you're wondering "What is a merge module?" - a merge module is a Windows Installer "sub-package" that can be included in other packages.

    More documentation about how to include Strawberry Perl in their own software will be posted within the next few days.

Plans for April:

  • Relocatability on install

  • "Strawberry Professional"

  • 64-bit versions

  • perl 5.12.x (assuming it gets released soon enough)

  • Non-admin installation and support

non-admin install

Hi Curtis,

could you please add to your April list also a support for installation without Admin privileges?

It was already discussed here:
