Hi,

I decided to try out the 6.0 branch to see how things are looking with it,
and it appears that it requires perl and DBI more recent than the versions
that come with debian stable (5.6.1 and 1.21 respectively).

Is the final release of 6.0 going to have the same requirements? (1.46 for
DBI apparently, not sure about the perl version, I'm guessing 5.8 for UTF
stuff).

Thanks,

Moses

I'm going to get in copies of the required XS modules for Debian stable.

As a side note, I would really appreciate it if everyone that's running
stable upgrade to testing or unstable. It's like you're running Windows 95 still. ;)

I recommend testing. Things can and will break with unstable more
often than testing. I only download from unstable when I can't wait a
couple of weeks for a specific package.

BTW - To follow up on this, I've checked in binary modules for Debian stable to the 6.0 tree.
