Subject Re: Windows binaries
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2012 14:33:27 GMT

I would be *very* interested in a working mod_perl 2.0.6 or 2.0.7 for Windows
- compatible with either ActivePerl or Strawberry Perl. As far as I'm aware,
only binaries for mod_perl 2.0.4 are currently available and we're getting
consistent crashes with it that, I believe, may be fixed in later versions.
This would be a tremendous help for us as we currently rely on mod_perl but
are stuck at Perl 5.8 due to this bug.
