Perl 5.16.0 RC0

Cerebrotonic Cato may
Extol the Ancient Disciplines,
But the muscle-bound Marines
Mutiny for food and pay.

Caesar's double-bed is warm
As an unimportant clerk
Writes I DO NOT LIKE MY WORK
On a pink official form.

-- W. H. Auden, The Fall of Rome

I've just uploaded the first release candidate of Perl 5.16.0 to PAUSE.

The files should be available soon, with the following SHA sums:

3f08f8e00adc215ccbf6aff38c58eef58f4df102 perl-5.16.0-RC0.tar.bz2
99ce35a3e1a48b6936e3e2e56966cb6736181875 perl-5.16.0-RC0.tar.gz

While we go to lengths to ensure that new versions of Perl don't break
existing programs, it does happen. It's really, really important that
we catch unintentional breakage BEFORE we release Perl 5.16.0.
It is imperative that you test this release candidate with any software
written in Perl which you use or maintain.

Similarly, we test Perl on a variety of operating systems on a number of
platforms with several different compilers. If you're not 100% certain
that we're testing yours, NOW is the time to make sure that Perl 5.16.0
builds and passes its tests on your platform.

If no "showstopper" class bugs are found in the next 7 days, we will release
a virtually identical tarball as Perl 5.16.0 on or soon after Thursday, May
17, 2012.

I see typos and formatting errors in the modules section of perldelta.
Where am I supposed to patch it? Are you going to merge it to blead,
to make things less confusing?

What happened with commit 1061b56a7b2cc? You seem to have reverted my
commit 1405d8c986, but in my name.

Awesome news!

One question, I was going through perldelta and I noticed that CPANPLUS is
scheduled to be removed from core?

Default build out-of-the-box on Windows 7 x64 with VC++ 2010 SP1 is
sadly not a pleasant experience for me. As reported previously, numerous
tests hang and have to be killed, yielding the test results below. As
noted before, however, all is well aside from the intermittent fork.t
test 24 failure if STDERR is redirected somewhere.

It's a great shame that I've not been able to fix this. Is anyone else
seeing this, or is it just me? I get the same thing on two different
machines, so it's at least not just one particular machine.

I get similar failures with the SDK compiler.

io_sock.t has been behaving for me recently though.

The problem is that %Module::CoreList::version contains the key "5.016"

You need both entries in the hashes, see patch below. I did not dare
pushing it yet. That part should probably have tests, too.

PAUSE seems to have failed to correctly retrieve the file to which I pointed
it.

~/Dropbox/Public/perl$ shasum *
3f08f8e00adc215ccbf6aff38c58eef58f4df102 perl-5.16.0-RC0.tar.bz2

You can get the file at

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/88746/perl/perl-5.16.0-RC0.tar.bz2

I will ask Andreas to replace it.

Thanks. I will fix this and will fix the corelist updater to add it. (I
relied on the automation too heavily.)

Yes, those are rough. They're mostly C&P directly from the previous deltas.
Dave Rolsky has already made some fixes, but more are welcome. Now that the
world didn't end, blead now descends from rjbs/release-5.16 and you should feel
free to make those perldelta fixes directly. Thanks.

During my repeated rebasing of rjbs/release-5.16 on blead, I encountered a few
perldelta changes and rebuild them onto my branch. I clearly screwed that one
up, and I'm really sorry! I've corrected it.

It's not scheduled yet, but the tentative plan is deprecation in 5.18 and
removal in 5.20. Feel free to provide compelling arguments against (in a new
thread!).

OK, trying to install my CPAN distributions (and their dependencies), I found
that:

1. IO::All tests now emit a lot of warnings (due to a stray \E after a \u). I
fixed it in the main IO-All repository, but Ingy needs to release a new CPAN
distribution:

https://github.com/ingydotnet/io-all-pm

2. The tests of URI::Fetch are now broken on my machine (but also on
perl-5.14.2). I reported this bug report about it:

https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=77131

3. Most of my other modules were built and installed fine.

----

Next, I'm going to try to force install URI::Fetch and then try to build my
home site with it.

Re: Perl 5.16.0 RC0 [In reply to]

After working round the Module::CoreList bug, it turns out mod_perl needs
an update for the removal of PL_uid et al. Reported as [rt.cpan.org
#77129]. Apart from that, all the CPAN deps of $ork codebase install
fine.

I'm getting some "Subroutine redefined" warnings from a non-CPAN module,
which didn't occur with 5.14.2 and fails some Test::NoWarnings tests.
I don't recall any deliberate change around this warning. Looking into
it.

The warnings show up if I XSLoader::load() an XS module more than once.
Can reproduce it perfectly well with a CPAN XS module, if I manually do
the XSLoader::load(). Doesn't occur in 5.14.2. I'm not clear on what's
meant to happen here: who is responsible for making sure a module's BOOT
section only runs once? I guess the CPAN smokes won't have caught if
this affects anything on CPAN, since it's only a warning.

Anyway, I can certainly fix it for this module by adding guards to the
multiple load() calls. I already have such guards in XML-Easy, which
would otherwise exhibit this problem.

This was a regression from 5.8, which I fixed. A consting patch in
5.10, believe it or not, reversed the logic in a if() condition.

I don't get any hangs with my VC6 + 2003 PSDK builds, and just some
passing TODO tests as well as a single CPAN module failure:

Test Summary Report
-------------------
../cpan/CGI/t/tmpdir.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 9 Failed: 0)
TODO passed: 3-9
../cpan/IPC-Cmd/t/01_IPC-Cmd.t (Wstat: 256 Tests: 459 Failed: 1)
Failed test: 20
Non-zero exit status: 1
Files=2339, Tests=528066, 1906 wallclock secs (27.03 usr + 90.13 sys = 117.16 CPU)
Result: FAIL

I've been offline for the last 3.5 weeks and can't remember if
the IPC-Cmd failure is new or not; the passing tmpdir.t TODO tests
have been happening for a while though.

Cheers,
-Jan

I'm seeing the same on the win7 64/vc2010 express box I'm building for
p5p and blamed it on my inexperience with building perl on windows 7.

What OS was that on?

I've just tried again with VC6 SP6, VC8 SP1 and VC10 SP1 and I get the
exact same set of tests hanging with all three of them. This is
WIndows 7 64-bit. I'm specifying WIN64=undef in the build for a 32-bit
build, but otherwise have changed nothing except the CCTYPE.

(The fork.t failure is interrmittent; so is the io_sock failure. But
the *hangs* are 100% reproducible every time on both machines
available to me, albeit both Win7 x64...)

It was on a lean little Win2K VM. I'll see if I can set up a Win7
machine for testing, but it may take me a little while. I much prefer
using the obsolete Windows versions as they run in comparatively tiny
amounts of memory. :)

I see more or less the same failures and hanging tests on Win7/64bit box
with 32bit perl-5.16-RC0 build (by 32bit gcc 4.6.3 + C-runtime from
mingw-w64.sf.net)

However, on the same box (Win7/64bit) with 64bit build of the same perl (by
64bit gcc 4.6.3 + C-runtime from mingw-w64.sf.net) surprisingly *no tests
hang* and the overall result is:

Test Summary Report
-------------------
../cpan/CGI/t/tmpdir.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 9 Failed: 0)
TODO passed: 3-9
../dist/Net-Ping/t/510_ping_udp.t (Wstat: 256 Tests: 2 Failed: 1)
Failed test: 2
Non-zero exit status: 1
Files=2342, Tests=528963, 1552 wallclock secs (54.94 usr + 3.89 sys =
58.83 CPU)
Result: FAIL

Just to make it complete - with redirected stderr the result on 32bit
gcc-4.6.3 build was:

Test Summary Report

op/fork.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 25 Failed: 2)
Failed tests: 23-24

I suppose this is more of a BBC report, but the only problems I've found
with the application I'm running are to do with defined(@array) now
issuing a deprecation warning. I use three such modules, and two
already had an RT ticket with a patch. I've added a ticket for the
third. The modules are:

YAML - https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=74226
Module::Find - https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=74251
Net::Server - https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=77166

Otherwise 5.16 is looking good running against Dancer, DBIx::Class,
Moose, Plack, Starman, Devel::Cover and a bunch of related stuff.

Interesting... However, I've just tried a 64-bit build using VC++ 2010
and I still get tests hanging as before :-(
