in thread Is ActivePerl repositories go free again?

Hi folks - my name is Pete, I work at ActiveState and just wanted to quickly note that the above answer is roughly correct. We support PPM access for versions of ActivePerl that we are currently shipping CE (Community Edition) for, with a bit of a buffer when new versions come out (so there will be a period where older CE versions will retain access to PPM). Currently, those versions are 5.24.1 and 5.22.3 so I would venture to say that for an older version like 5.16 you won't be able to access PPM modules for install without a BE (Business Edition) license. PPM is available for all versions with BE. Hope that helps! Feel free to ping me if you ever have questions.

    Can you link to something official documenting this on the ActiveState site, perhaps a maintained support matrix showing what to expect would be useful for users?

        Thank you, this is exactly the resource I had in mind, it'll be great to be able to point people to this page when the question is asked in future. Cheers.

        I appreciate this, however I was thinking more along the lines of a concrete statement on the ActiveState website that reflects what rawktron said. I've used Strawberry since it was in Alpha and have never experienced a problem (that I can remember), so I'd continue to advise people to use that rather than ActiveState, but I feel that an official reference for this issue would be beneficial to those who do need to use AS for whatever reason, if it were maintained in terms of version numbers etc, rather than a post on an unrelated website, from a new user (first post) that I don't know.
