ActiveState is pleased to announce ActivePerl 5.8.9 build 829, and ActivePerl 5.12.3 build 1204, complete, ready-to-install binary distributions of Perl.
Builds for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux are made freely available. Builds for Solaris, HP-UX and AIX are available with ActivePerl Business Edition. For detailed information or to download these releases, see: http://www.activestate.com/activeperl 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. Getting Started =============== Whether you're a first-time user or a long-time fan, our free resources will help you get the most from ActivePerl.
