Newer, Tastier Perl for Windows
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.|
