The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.

Changes for version 0.3.5

  • No changes to the libraries, just to the tests. Perl best practices form a moving target.
  • Stop using bareword filehandles; if it isn't deprecated already, it will be.
  • RT #143716: Perl pulled the rug from under me on untainting environment variables when it stopped treating an empty string as a safe PATH. Fix by deleting the offending environment variables instead, as suggested by Graham Knop.
