RPerl v1.0 Released!

Posted by Will Braswell (Creator)

Greetings Loyal RPerl Backers,

After over 2.5 years of work, I'm very proud to (finally) announce the full release of RPerl v1.0 on CPAN!

Installation should now be as simple as:

$ cpan RPerl


$ cpanm RPerl

For more information about install options, please see:

As outlined in step 3 of the install notes file, we can now automatically compile our test program and see speed improvements of approximately 170x to 350x, depending on your system.

As usual, the RPerl technical team is in #perl11 on so don't hesitate to reach out if you need help or have any questions. Let the bug reports begin! :-)

We've come a long way, and we've got a long way to go yet, this is just barely the beginning!
