( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I saw blessing support in new threads::shared ? yesterday.

The poster said that he made some improvements, but it was too big to put into the main perl5.8.8 release. That is weird isn't it?

My reading of that was that the changes were extensive and finished too close to the release of 5.8.8, so that there was not enough time to ensure adaquate testing before release. Releasing it to cpan means that those us interested in playing with it get to do so now without imposing the associated risks (if any) on all users of 5.8.8.

This way, dave_the_m potentially inlists a bunch of testers to check the changes out before it gets considered as a candidate for the next release. I think its a great idea. My only wish is that threads was available separately packaged also.

It'd be nice if things like the defined-or keyword could be made available in a similar manner. It seems to have been an inordinately long time since I first heard that was mooted for inclusion and it's still not available :(

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
