Subject RE: Status of Embperl?
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2012 07:22:29 GMT

Embperl is still alive :-), also it's moving slowly :-(

The version in the svn and the dev snapshot 2.5.0_1 (which can be found at
) solves the debian problem.

There are some problems left with mod_perl and perl 5.14 and 5.16 .

There is a solution for the "compile error" problem in the current svn version (but this causes
some warnings when a page is changed and recompiled).

Please use Version 2.5.0_1 or the source from the svn if you run Perl 5.14 or 5.16 .

The good news is that I currently working on a payed project which includes fixing Embperl
for Perl 5.14 & 5.16, so hopefully there will be a new release in a few weeks, which solves
all these problems.
