ActivePerl Community Edition
What's New in This Release:
  • This build corresponds to the Perl 5.18.1 source code release.
  • The 1800 series builds of ActivePerl are not binary compatible with builds in the 1600 or earlier series. Any extensions built using binaries from the ActivePerl 1600 or earlier series will need to be recompiled. Note especially that this applies to PPM packages that may have been built for earlier series of ActivePerl.
  • The 1800 series builds of ActivePerl use 64 bit integers on platforms that are otherwise 32 bit. The main benefit is that Perl's scalars now can represent larger integers precisely, without turning to float approximations. The $Config{archname} of these builds has grown to include the -64int- segment.
  • All Windows builds are now built with the MinGW compiler.
