Description

12 years ago
So that we can take advantage of various perl 5.8 features, such as Switch, "use fields" and the utf8 capabilities of perl 5.8, we are thinking that we'll require perl 5.8 for 2.24.

For the 2.22 release notes, we should note that 2.22 will be the last version to support perl 5.6.1.

Is that "official"? I see no discussion about this point and I don't remember any discussion about it. And no discussion means nothing official for me.

Yep, 5.8.0 has been out longer now than 5.6.1 had been when we decided to require it, and all of the major distroes are shipping at least 5.8.0 these days.
