#1: ActivePerl 5.8.7.815 released

Posted on 2005-11-15 21:21:21 by Jan Dubois

ActivePerl 5.8.7 build 815 is now available for download from our
website. It looks like the online docs on ASPN have not been
updated yet, so here are the important changes since build 813:

* Windows version includes PerlEx for IIS.

* HTML help and TOC are always updated when a module is installed,
by PPM, by CPAN shell, or even when installed manually.

* On Windows and OS X sample code in the HTML docs has syntax highlighting.

* On Windows ActivePerl will automatically use MinGW to compile modules
if Microsoft VC++ is not installed, but MinGW and dmake are.

* Security vulnerability CAN-2005-0448 has been addressed by replacing
the rmtree() function in File::Path.

* The following modules have been updated:

Archive-Tar-1.26
Archive-Zip-1.16
Compress-Zlib-1.41
HTML-Parser-3.46
IO-String-1.07
libwin32-0.26
Mac-Apps-Launch-1.92
Mac-OSA-Simple-1.09
Time-HiRes-1.76
Unicode-String-1.09

There are several fixes and new features for Windows in the updated
libwin32 module; please check the change log.

Cheers,
-Jan

PS: Build 814 was identical to build 813 except for the addition of
a beta version of PerlEx.

There are no changes in that area.

I would have thought the next one would have been based on Perl 5.8.8?
Or is it too soon for that one?

I'm glad to see improvements in this area.

However a question: I use "external" (i.e., external to /Perl) lib folders, eg:

perllib=C:/SRC/Perllib/Lib1;C:/SRC/Perllib/Lib2

Is there a simple way to have POD from these trees integrated into the HTML help and TOC?

perl -v gives:

This is perl, v5.8.7 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 14 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

Absolutely. It seem like someone is resending a bunch of old messages
directly to the recipients listed in the headers. I've filtered out
about 50 messages so far. They all have one of the following 2 lines
in the SMTP header:

Delivered-To: hescobar@travelone.net
Delivered-To: travelone.net-hescobar@travelone.net

> Or is it too soon for that one?

The next release is indeed 5.8.8.816, and it has already passed QA, so it
should become available soonish.

Cheers,
-Jan

The message was dated last November, and I, for one, have had 815 for
about that long.

You guys are responding to emails that are several months old and are
somehow re-entering the system today. Check the dates on these emails
before replying to them.
