Interesting. I got an email from AS related to my custom 5.26 build with Tk:
"Please note, the Platform is in Beta. So if you have any issues with a custom runtime or canít find a package, let us know and we can take a look!
- The ActiveState Team"
If there are issues, I would take AS up on that offer!
This custom build stuff is a huge new feature for AS and I am sure that there are some hiccups. That's part of the reason that I am still at v5.24.
Update: There is some version level where AS said that installing a later version over a previous version was "safe". I don't remember when that was. I would uninstall any AS Perl versions. Then install v5.28 anew and see how that works?
