Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225059
new iThreads release
Last modified: 2008-03-20 09:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:
the currently shipped version of perl iThreads is 1.07. The most recent version
at CPAN is 1.58 (both numbers are taken from threads.pm file).
please upgrade the package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I really doubt there's anyone in Fedora team wanting to take the responsibility
to update threads in 5.8.x while NWCLARK doesn't seem to be doing anything in
I'd suggest raising this topic on perl5-porters, maybe Nick has something to say
OT, OFC, bleadperl has a current version of threads (RGARCIA updated it to 1.58
in change 29973)
In perl-5.10 we have 1.67. It isn't the latest but I think it's enough.
