For sane unicode support, 5.8.5 is normal - which maintains compat with older RHELs and generally doesn't cause any compat issues. Requiring 5.8.8 instead just seems gratuitous unless there's a specific reason - in which case, please document the specific reason because none of the perl5 porters I've spoken to can figure it out. -- Matt S Trout - Shadowcat Systems - Perl consulting with a commit bit and a clueEmail me now on mst (at) shadowcat.co.uk and let's chat about how our Catalyst commercial support, training and consultancy packages could help your team.
