in reply to Perl 5.18 RC2 has been released

Deprecated Utilities The following utilities will be removed from the core distribution in a future release as their associated modules have been deprecated. They will remain available with the applicable CPAN distribution. cpanp

cpanp is removed because its deprecated?

I think this is error, because I can find no such mention of CPANPLUS being deprecated

Not surprising given that no link to documentation stating such is provided

If there exists some deprecation notice, please link it

    I think this is the first notice that, maybe in 5.20 or later, CPANPLUS and the associated tools will be removed. 5.18-RC2 certainly includes cpanp, as I've used it to test installation of modules.

    I don't know where the deprecation of CPANPLUS comes from, but I think it just hasn't seen much maintenance and carries quite some overhead in term of modules. Of course, CPANPLUS will stay available through the CPAN.
