    Which perl version is required for SS/SC/SBS/LMS now and historically

    This information is not actually clearly outlined anywhere ?

    It would be nice with a chart in the wiki for such info .

    To confuse matters more, for the latest version of downloadable the perl source code, the doc's clearly states 5.10 as minimum but no maximum .

    Anecdotal info on this sites has 5.12 or 5.14 as maximum tested version ?

    Further when I got my duet way back my old server had 5.8.6 ,but some people found that the controller worked better if perl on the server was at least 5.8.8 so thats what i had for many years.

    My new server has 5.10.1 it works great .

    But reading the many NAS related issues one realises that many NAS boxes is still using only 5.8.6 or perhaps older ?

    For people using active perl on windows I think they where recomended to use 5.10 ?

    Windows: we moved to using 5.14 as it was about time to update, and
    there's no default perl on Windows.
    OSX: we use whatever is installed on the system (5.10 up to Leopard, 5.12
    starting Snow Leopard IIRC)
    Linux: we do provide binaries for a vast list of versions. But as you
    mentioned 5.8.6 exposed some serious crashing issues. Therefore I'd say
    5.8.8 is the absolute minimum.

    5.8.6 exposed some serious crashing issues , thats partly why I asked as many NAS distros seems to run on this perl version .

    And people are installing modern versions of the server on it , as can be seen in many of the reports in the triodes spotify tread by NAS users as collateral information ,not directly involved in the issues solved there.

    So I just wanted to expose this information a bit more .
