I have just recieved news that ActivePerl 188.8.131.520 has been released. It fixes a few major bugs that we experienced when releasing Bioperl 1.5.2.
Without going into it in much detail - I'm on holiday :o) here are a few of the pertinent fixes:
It should have fixed bugs releaing to updating to the latest version of a module (from any repo) rather than just installing the one from
ActiveState's repo. Therefore, you should be able to say something like "install bioperl" or "upgrade bioperl" and you get the latest version
available rather than having to specifically tell it which verson of a package to install.
It should also have fixed a bug whereby we we forced to implemented a redirect in the httpd.conf file. The bug resulted in PPM4 clients requesting
modules from our repo rather than ActiveStates.
The PPM GUI should now also support install and uninstall of modules with post-install and uninstall scripts
For the full change log see:
I haven't been able to test these changes as I'm on holiday. But if these changes fix problems we were having we should think about bumping up the min
requirement to ActivePerl 184.108.40.2060 so save a lot of headaches.
