  • Significant changes that have occurred in the Perl 5.12.3 release, are documented in the perl5123delta manpage.

  • Invoking the debugger by putting the -d option on the #! line works correctly now. In earlier 5.12 releases the debugger would not properly record the source lines and therefore wouldn't allow setting of breakpoints.

Build 1203 December 8, 2010

Build 1203 is based on Perl 5.12.2 plus additional selected changes from the Perl development branch.

Bug Fixes and Changes since build 1202

  • Support for 64-bit PerlScript for Windows has been added.

  • DBD::Oracle binaries have been included in the 64-bit builds for Linux and Windows. Just like the 32-bit binaries they require an installation of the Oracle client libraries to be functional.

  • DBD::Pg has been added for all platforms. Works out-of-the box, as all required additional libraries are statically linked into the module.

  • Most bundled modules have been updated to their latest released version from CPAN. Use the ppm query command to check the exact version included in this release.

Build 1202 September 6, 2010

Build 1202 is based on Perl 5.12.2 plus additional selected changes from the Perl development branch.

Bug Fixes and Changes since build 1201

  • ActivePerl now bundles Perl-Critic together with the graphical shell introduced in the Perl Dev Kit. Perl-Critic is a system for enforcing your specified coding guidelines.

  • ActivePerl now bundles Devel-NYTProf; a source code profiler. The profiler measures and reports the time at spent by different parts of programs.

  • ActivePerl now bundles Moose; a modern object system. Moose makes Perl 5 Object Oriented programming easier, more consistent and less tedious.

  • Upgraded libgd, freetype, png and jpeg libraries linked with the GD module. True type fonts are now supported.

  • Significant changes that have occurred in the Perl 5.12.2 release, are documented in the perl5122delta manpage.

  • The following security vulnerabilities have been addressed:

    • The Crypt::SSLeay in this release is compiled against OpenSSL 1.0.0 which contains various security fixes.

    • The upgrades to the CGI and Safe modules in this release might prevent security vulnerabilities in end-user code, depending on how these modules are being used.

Build 1200 February 20, 2010

What's new in the 1200 Series

  • This build corresponds to the Perl 5.12.0 source code release.

  • The 1200 series builds of ActivePerl are not binary compatible with builds in the 600, 800 or 1000 series. Any extensions built using binaries from the ActivePerl 600, 800 or 1000 series will need to be recompiled. Note especially that this applies to PPM packages that may have been built for 600, 800 or 1000 series builds.

  • Significant changes that have occurred in the 5.12.0 release are documented in the perl5120delta manpage.
