DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2014-07-28 19:04:01

I had some plans to possibly import perl 5.20, but I was hoping to include 5.20.1 which isn't out for at least a month and espie@ says that it is too close to lock. I will continue to push local patches upstream to get everyone using perl on OpenBSD to be using the same improvements that are in our base perl. Read more... ...
