Perl 5.6.2 snapshot @21463
Message ID:
I've packaged a new tarball of the current state of perl 5.6.2.

News from the last : (see Changes for details)
- some docs update (perldelta, perlfaq*, perlhist, perlunicode, perlhack)
- got the hints from bleadperl
- upgraded Safe and File::Temp
- Windows fixes
- compilation warnings fixes

Status : (from the smokers)
- Failures on Solaris 2.10
- odbm is not happy on at least one FreeBSD
- locale.t or warnings.t failures on NetBSD

Apparently we have also failures on Mac OS X
(anybody smoking on Darwin?)

Further testing with mod_perl 1 and 2 would be good as well.

I'm considering an RC when there the remaining compilation
issues will be fixed, so if you want $module upgraded, or
$patch integrated, send a patch :)
