Subject RE: install/config mod_perl-2(1.99_08)

You say eventually perl 5.8 will be recommended.  Why is it not the
recommended version now?  

I am developing a windows application currently and started out with
activestate perl 5.6.1, apache 2, and mod_perl 1.99.  I ran into a lot
of problems and blamed them on mod_perl because it is still rather new.
Things have progressed smoothly enough using apache versions 1.x and
mod_perl 1.x

I didn't think of trying perl 5.8, but would be glad to if that is going
to help things.  I would like the capabilities that Apache and mod_perl
2.x give.

Maybe not easy :) Using perl-5.6.1, and Apache-2.0.42, I found
the above to also hang ... However, it worked as expected using
the perl-5.8/Apache2 binary of perl-5.8-win32-bin.tar.gz under As there's issues with
threads on Win32 with perl-5.6.1, eventually perl-5.8 will be the
recommended Win32 Perl for mod_perl-2; if possible, you may want
to give this a try.
