At some stage after 5.32 was released, the maintainer (kmx) quit.
Chase Whitener has taken over and, just a couple of days ago, posted that
he's still working on getting 5.34 and 5.36 strawberry releases made - and
confident of doing so.
Building perl itself is easy on Windows - but Strawberry Perl undertakes to
additionally provide a wide range of C libraries (eg GD, GMP and OPenSSL),

That adds considerably to the amount and complexity of the work that needs
