You can read about all the changes since Perl 5.16.0 in the perldelta document: http://docs.activestate.com/activeperl/5.16/lib/pods/perl5161delta.html In addition, the 64-bit version of ActivePerl 5.16.1 for Windows now automatically supports building and installing additional modules with MinGW64 and dmake.
