The 5.8 branch of perl is not being developed any further. There is no 
one responsible (nor willing) to backport changes and release further 
versions in the series.

I suppose if sufficient people volunteered for the task, this could be 
changed, but our current strategy is to focus our limited resources on 
more recent branches: 5.12.X and bleeding edge development in 5.13 
towards 5.14. Currently, there isn't even a champion for a 5.10.2 release.

The best way out of this would be to migrate to a newer release of perl.

Best regards,
Steffen
