What's new in ActivePerl

* ActivePerl 5.12 is now based on the recent 5.12.3 release.

* The -d switch on the #! line will now properly invoke the debugger
  in Perl 5.12 (it already worked in 5.8.9 and 5.10.1).

* For Perl 5.8 on Mac OS X the Tk module has been compiled to avoid absolute
  references to the installed Perl version.  This makes it possible to run
  packaged Tk applications (using PerlApp) to run on OS X systems that
  don't have ActivePerl installed.

* All bundled modules have been updated to their latest stable releases.
