ActivePerl: Slow to release the current version of Perl?
The BioPerl 1.6.901 release should build fine with Strawberry Perl 5.10/12. I haven't tested much beyond that (It's been awhile since I used BioPerl in Windows!). It will be awhile before you see another release of BioPerl; you can pull in patches from Git, but modules are being moved around and code refactored such that it won't build at the moment. Your best scenario is to use linux and export bioperl-live in your .bashrc, giving you access to the latest code and bypassing the need to build and install BioPerl.
