MacPerl Goes Beta

MacPerl 5.6.1 is now in beta.  And there is much rejoicing.

    "Lord General, I really must protest!  You cannot expect us to sit
    on these greasy, smelly blankets.  I demand that you find us either
    higher chairs or a lower table best becoming a Graagryk halfling's
    dignity!"

    Ashnak looked down at Cornelius Scroop.  The halfling from the
    southern city of Graagryk wore a full-length fur gown, upon which
    rested his S-linked gold chain of office, and a velvet cap on his
    long, barbered red curls.

    "Those are marine-issue blankets, Chancellor Cornelius, and
    marines get nothing but the best."

    "They're *dirty*!"

    "Oh, I wouldn't say that.  Unwashed, perhaps.  Oh, you mean the
    *blankets*."

    -- Book 2, Chapter 10, Grunts!, by Mary Gentle

Thanks to everyone who has helped get us this far.  There's still a long
way to go, of course.  Please download and use and test the release, and
report bugs to http://dev.macperl.org/.

To discuss the release, please join macperl@perl.org (general discussion)
or macperl-porters@perl.org (development discussion) at
http://lists.perl.org/.

There are two installation choices: the web installer and the full
installer.  The full installer has all the pieces in the binary already,
including all the source.  The web installer will go out to the download
site online and fetch just the pieces it needs.  Please use the web
installer if you can, and let me know how your impressions of the system.

Also, if you want to use Mac::Glue, you can use the glues from previous
versions of MacPerl, or you can just run "gluedialect" and then
"gluescriptadds", and then drop any application (including the Finder) that
you wish to script onto "gluemac".  All the modules needed for Mac::Glue
are included.

All downloads and data and information and everything else are available
from the MacPerl Development site:

    http://dev.macperl.org/

You can use my PGP key for verifying the distribution:

    http://use.perl.org/~pudge/pubkey/

Enjoy!
