I find it annoying that they made a release based on 5.8.1 when 5.8.2 is the current version... 5.8.1 has a number of ugly bugs... Silly Activestate.

I wonder if their ISAPI fixes will allow us to run cleanly under it...

Yes, there is an annoying bug (STDOUT buffering) with perlis which slows down .plx scripts... I think that they fixed it in this release. If you're under Windows Server 2003 and want to use perlis, you must upgrade...

You can search win32 perl lists. There are some threads about it...

Bug Fixes and Changes

Perl 5.8.3 has been incorporated. See perl583delta for a list of changes.

The Win32 module now includes the Win32::IsAdminUser() function that checks if the current interpreter runs with Administrator privileges.

The access violations of detached threads on thread exit have been fixed.

Time::HiRes now provides high resolution on Windows too.

ActivePerl 5.8.7.813 is released, based on perl 5.8.7 thumbsup

http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/docs/ActivePerl/5.8/CHANGES-58.html

Bug Fixes and Changes

  • ActivePerl is now supported on the Mac OS X platform.
  • New improved HTML documentation which requires JavaScript enabled browser.
  • Installation of the HTML documentation is now optional.
  • Perl 5.8.7 has been incorporated. See perl587delta.pod for a list of changes.
  • ActivePerl will now evaluate 'sitecustomize.pl' at startup if present. The ActivePerl distribution does not ship with this file, but it is a hook that the system administrator can use to set up set up additional site specific @INC entries.
  • Fixed Net::Ping's ICMP implementation to not give up waiting for the echo reply until it either receives an unreachable reply or times out. Previous versions would for instance give up if they received a source quench reply.
  • Many bundled modules have been updated to their latest versions:
    Archive-Tar-1.23
    Compress-Zlib-1.34
    Convert-ASN1-0.19 (only for HP-UX)
    HTML-Parser-3.45
    HTML-Tagset-3.04
    libwww-perl-5.803
    XML-Simple-2.14

I didn't use it before, but it's working must be similar to mod_perl and this requires a little more tweaking than cgi I believe smile

And here it comes smile ActivePerl 5.8.7 build 815 with the PerlEx bundle!

http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/?mp=1

I've tried it with a code I'm currently working on and it runs as fast as mod_perl yay . PerlEx was a needed product for IIS. But I'm currently experiencing some weird behaviour with `` commands. I'll dig it later smile
