pno has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Dear Monks,

I'm trying to install Net::Daemon. It requires JSON 2.5 As you can see below JSON 2.90 is installed (should be compatible with 2.5). Did you encounter this issue and solved it somehow? I'm using ActiveState perl 5.18.2
