Subject: Strawberry 5.12 displays 5.10 README
I just downloaded July's 5.12.1.0.msi file from the Strawberry.com front page. The README that is displayed after the installation reads "Strawberry Perl 5.10.1.3 README" which is a bit strange because it is actually found in 5.12.1.0. Of course, the link in the start menu that displays the README suffers the same issue. A little less important, the readme contains instructions that are only for the .zip distribution, but they are also present in the .msi, which can be confusing. -- Mike.

I'll have to check and see what happened. Thanks for letting me know.

It's because the README is generated once for both the .zip and the .msi - they aren't generated separately. Good call. I need to think about how to deal with generating 2 separate README files while keeping everything else the same and keeping the build process' steps logical. One on top of the other in between, maybe?
fixed in strawberry perl 5.14.2.1
