Newer, Tastier Perl for Windows

by chromatic

David Golden has just announced the release of Vanilla Perl build 4. This is an important project, as the completed version will provide Windows users with a standard Perl as well as a freely redistributable compiler, making it possible to install CPAN modules with the same ease as on a standard Unix system.

(There's much more to post from YAPC::NA 2006; I'll get to it through the week.)

Better yet, I've released Strawberry Perl Alpha 1, which pre-installs additional modules over Vanilla Perl to support Perl development on Windows.
