in reply to ActivePerl: Slow to release the current version of Perl?

ActiveState and Strawberry are, of course, very different approaches to the rather-challenging task of “providing Perl on Windows.”   Active, corporately speaking, is bearing a much larger and very different burden here:   they undertake to do everything for you, and you wait for them to do it.   Actually a very reasonable approach, but it means that the two systems are definitely Apples/Cumquats.   It seems to me that, if you have a question or concern about Active’s version release timetable, you really need to ask them directly ... and let us know.

    Hi.

    Ok. I emailed ActiveState and inquired about the delay in releasing 5.18.1 and I was told that a stable release would most likely appear this week (which I interpreted as September 22, 2013).

    Hope this helps.
