Those tests were run using that exact same combination:

C:\test>perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread (with 2 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) Copyright 1987-2009, Larry Wall Binary build 1007 [291969] provided by ActiveState http://www.ActiveSt Built Jan 27 2010 14:12:21

But the same has been true for every build since at least 5.8.1 and probably earlier, and continues through 5.16.1:

C:\test>perl -v This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 1 (v5.16.1) built for MSWin32-x +64-multi-thread (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail) ...
