5.10.1-RC2 feedback: upgrade recommended
Message ID:


Here's some feedback on Perl 5.10.1-RC2. 

The version of in this release is 3.43.

I recommend using 3.45 instead, which contains about a dozen bug fixes.

3.43 contains a regression-- a bug introduced in 3.37 where "0" quit working as
a default value in popup_menu(). 

At least that patch should make it into the release.

Here's a link to the 'Changes' file in git:

It also shows you the bug fixes in the unreleased 3.46 version, which is complete, but waiting for a blessing and upload from Lincoln.
