Jesse Vincent has announced the release of Perl 5.11.1.

Downloadable here:

Notable changes in this release:

  • Package declarations can now include a version number.
  • suidperl is no longer available as part of perl. If your code depends on suidperl, you need to find an alternate solution. (This was actually true as of 5.11.0)
  • Over the years a number of language constructs and interpreter features have been deprecated and will eventually be removed. As of this release, Perl enables deprecation warnings by default.
  • Perl's tests are now aware of (and work around) a bug in Mac OS X 10.6 locales.
  • Support for Windows 95, 98, ME and NT4 has officially ended.

This is the second of the new, regularly-scheduled releases of the 5.11 series. Coming up:

Yves Orton will release Perl 5.11.2 on November 20, 2009.

Leon Brocard will release Perl 5.11.3 on December 20, 2009.

Ricardo Signes will release Perl 5.11.4 on January 20, 2010.

In reply to Perl 5.11.1 released by xdg

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
