While skimming 5.8.8 perldelta, a remark about
a "better threads::shared available on CPAN"
caught my eye, so off I went to investigate.
Alas, the Changes file doesn't seem to have any mentions
of diffs between 0.95 (the CPAN version) and 0.94
(the version in 5.8.8). However, this little tidbit
piqued my curiousity:
0.94 Tue Jan 10 00:00:00 2006
- Initial release to CPAN
- 'bless' is now supported on shared refs
Since I've been blissfully blessing
shared objects for several releases (IIRC, at least since 5.8.3), I'm confused about what the above note refers
to ? Does this mean that blessed shared objects now keep
their blessing when passed to another thread ?
Also, can anyone elaborate on the other changes in 0.95 that make it "better" than 0.94 ?
