in reply to ActivePerl 5.8 Beta 1: yea or nay?

Hmm, turns out that there are no real release notes in the zip file. There is CHANGES.html, but it doesn't specify any differences from "canonical" 5.8.0...

Of course, it's possible there are no differences, but then, why wait 3 months to release AP 5.8?

    You can see a huge diff against the official perl5.8.0 release

    You can also download the source for the latest activeperl 5.8 beta and build it yourself if you want large file support.

      Cool! That's perfect...

      I wish ActiveState had exactly that note on their 5.8 download page, though, or had those items listed in the release notes.

      Oh well, I guess that's one of the reasons it's a beta :)
