Perl 5.18 hits tree...

Recommended Posts

Perl 5.18 has hit the Portage tree, as we unfork perl to align with Gentoo.


The upgrade process is somewhat painful. Many dev-perl ebuilds will need to be rebuilt by running "perl-updater --modules".


Those ebuilds that have EAPI=5 set will not need rebuilding, but those with EAPI=4 or below will need perl-updater to help them along.


Apologies for any inconvenience in updating. I am going to make some changes to provide a more solid platform in the future.
