Strawberry Perl 5.28.0

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


The absence of a Strawberry Perl release of version 5.28.0 has me puzzled.

Both perl-5.24.4 and perl-5.26.2 were released on April 14, with Strawberry Perl releases of those versions made the next day.
And when perl-5.26.0 was released on May 31, 2017 Strawberry Perl 5.26.0 was released the same day.
Yet, whilst perl-5.28.0 was released on June 23, there is still no sign of Strawberry Perl 5.28.0 a fortnight later.

Does anyone here have any knowledge wrt the delay ?

      Heh ... I'm a bit sceptical about that ... but I'm quite happy to take the credit, anyway ;-)

      No - frioux tells me that he has nothing to do with the Strawberry Perl releases, and suggested contacting the Strawberry Perl mailing list, which I did.
      The only reply I've received to that post was from zdm who suggested that the maintainer (AFAIK that is still kmx) might be on vacation.
      I had sent kmx a private email a few days earlier but received no reply. Maybe his address is no longer active, or he couldn't be bothered replying, or he actually is on holiday.
      Time will tell, I guess.


        Thanks for the update, please keep me posted when/if you hear back.
