Yesterday in the CB a number of the monks were raving about the new AS release, build 632. However in correspondance with Gurusamy Sarathy, 5.6 pumpking and lead Perl developer at ActiveState he mentioned to me that there is a rather serious bug in the version of PPM3 (it wont update correctly) and that they will be releasing a new version (build 633) in the next few days (well, he said 'shortly' im assuming this wont be long... :-)
So for all you ActiveState monks out there if you were thinking of upgrading you are probably better off waiting for the new release.
Just wanted to give everybody a heads up.

Writing a good benchmark isnt as easy as it might look.
