Great release, looking forward to put in in production next week! I've found some confusing parts in the docs though: Is the 'Upgrading to Catalyst TBA' in the Upgrading doc a missed replacement before the version was released as 5.90040? The 'Regex dispatch type is deprecated.' is in the 'Upgrading to 5.9' section although it hasn't been removed until 5.90030.
I had to get used to dzil when I got involved into DBIC::API. Newer dzil versions added commands like authordeps that make installing the required modules a breeze. It took me about a day to find the plugins, mostly testing ones, to make it even more useful for our in-house modules. I don't like the idea of bundles that much because a change to them might break the build process of any module using it. When I find a new useful plugin I add it to my modules one after the other and verify that it works. Lately I had to install three author-only requirements for a Module::Install based module one after the other by hand because M::I only reports the first missing module on failure. That clearly showed that contributing to a dzil based module might even be easier!

Nice work! I saw that Apollo Domain/OS is listed twice on the ports page.

I'm using perlbrew since about a year on my notebook and dev box and will use it for future installations and migrations as soon as Debian 6 ships.

Just a quick overview about the Perl versions included in the distros we use (Debian) and consider (RHEL, because our Linux team prefers it): Debian 4: 5.8.8 Debian 5: 5.10.0 (with the important 5.10.1 fixes backported) Debian 6: 5.10.1 (unreleased, thats the current one) RHEL 3: 5.8.0 (Unicode broken) RHEL 4: 5.8.5 RHEL 5: 5.8.8 RHEL 6: 5.10.1 This is also a great place to find an overview:
