I've released berrybrew version 1.33. This version has significant enhancements, along with some bug fixes and handling of some uncaught exceptions. The changes reflect versions 1.30 to 1.33.

Major changes include:


  • Allows you to install, switch to, remove and use Strawberry Perls directly
  • Can now spawn a CLI window for any Perl you have installed
  • Allows you to spawn a CLI window for the currently active Perl
  • Provides access to modify several of the core configuration options (debug, file association etc)
  • Allows you to disable all berrybrew Perls and restore to system default


  • Performs an upgrade on any previous berrybrew install
  • Adds any new configuration options, while preserving the values of any previously set existing ones
  • Provides facility to install the most recent version of Strawberry Perl
  • Allows you to have berrybrew manage the .pl file association
  • Allows you to have the UI run at system startup
  • Aborts if trying to install the same version that's already installed


  • You can now leave off the _32/_64 bit prefix on a Perl name, and we'll default to _64
  • All execution paths return a proper exit code
  • Added new berrybrew hidden command, lists all, well, hidden commands

For all other changes, please refer to the Changes file.

    I have to admit that I rarely ever use Windows unless I'm working for a client, or I'm developing berrybrew.

    However, with the new UI feature of being able to pop out a CLI at any time to any version on the fly, berrybrew just became one hell of a lot more useful to me for my development, and I just might start using Windows for more of my Perl distribution development work.

    I hated having to open, make a change, close then reopen command line windows all the time. Way, way better with the UI.
