You should grab the latest alpha release here (now 1.5.9_4):


If you wait a few days you can grab the 1.6 stable release.

Installation (various platforms):


The PPM for Windows is present in the BioPerl Release Candidates PPM  
repo.  However there are several dependencies that are missing for  
perl 5.10 (I have no clue about 5.8, sorry), so for the moment PPM  
installation for perl 5.10 via Windows will not work.  There are other  
alternatives, though, if you read the installation instructions  
carefully, and I think ActivePerl also allows CPAN installation, so  
you could try that.
