When might we see new releases of Strawberry Perl on Windows

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

The most current release of Strawberry Perl for Windows is 5.32 from 2021-01. ActiveState has a 5.36 release. Does anyone know whatís going on with Strawberry Perl, and why itís lagging behind on releases? I searched around but didnít find anything, not even here.

    .... and why itís lagging behind on releases?

    Mainly, it's lagging because the project manager called it quits not long before the release of perl-5.34.0.
    Things are now looking much brighter.

    There's an experimental build of perl-5.36.0 (sp536_20230311.zip) available.
    It's a portable build and not yet fully featured, but everything you want may well be there. (I've found it to be fine for my purposes, so far.)
    Just download the file, extract it into C:\, and then rename the top level folder from "sp536_20230311" to "strawberry". (This will not be a permanent requirement, but is recommended for this experimental release.)
    To use it, you can double-click on C:\strawberry\portableshell.bat and use the cmd.exe shell that pops up.

    See https://github.com/StrawberryPerl/Perl-Dist-Strawberry/releases/tag/dev_20230311, and report any issues not covered by the stated caveats therein to https://github.com/StrawberryPerl/Perl-Dist-Strawberry/issues.

    Cheers,
    Rob

      This is great news! It'll be worth going back to work on berrybrew again!
