When using http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl/ I would normally expect that the 
default release shown there, as well as the Latest Release indicated when 
looking at any other version, would be the one with the highest stable version 
number, 5.26.0 in this case.  However the system is highlighting 5.24.2 instead 
because the release date was later, but that is not what is the most helpful to 
users. -- Darren Duncan
