Don't miss the next issue!

A lot of work, care and time went into it, but Test2 was finally released this week. Sometimes tells me Chad is very, very happy to have this one out of the door. Beside that, it's been a quiet week. The Strawberry version of 5.24 is now available. Oh, and talking of 5.24, it seems that its optimizations made Perl climb a few rung up the benchmark ladder. Enjoy! ~ `/anick
