What's new in ActivePerl

ActivePerl 5.14 is now based on the 5.14.0 release. You can read about all
the changes since Perl 5.12.0 in the perldelta document:

Some highlights of 5.14 are:

- Improved Unicode support, especially for regular expressions.  You
  can now explicitly request ASCII/Unicode/locale semantics with the
  /a, /u, and /l regexp modifiers.

- The s/// substitution operator has a non-destructive /r option. For
  example this statement will not modify the elements of @orig:

    my @copy = map { s/cat/dog/r } @orig;

- Exception handling is more reliable; $@ doesn't get clobbered by
  destructors anymore.
