ActiveState Support Policy for ActivePerl Community Editions


What is ActiveState's Support Policy for Community Editions?


The two most recent stable releases are available for free download. This corresponds to the Perl Community's own version support policy.

Whenever the underlying Perl version becomes unsupported by the Perl community itself, support for the corresponding ActivePerl versions will be limited to Business Edition and Enterprise Edition customers.

You can continue to use older ActivePerl releases indefinitely under the terms of the Community Edition license, but won't be able to download the installers from ActiveState.

The PPM repositories for unsupported ActivePerl releases will remain freely accessible for at least 6 months after support ends, but will no longer be updated with new builds from CPAN.

My reply to an FAQ has gone away


I posted a question to an FAQ. I don't see it any more. What happened?


FAQs will allow responses, however it is important that FAQ responses be related to the original topic. If your response is not related to the original topic, our moderators will remove it so that future readers of the FAQ are not confused by issues which are not directly relevant.

If your posting was related to a problem with the FAQ, and that problem has subsequently been corrected, your posting will also be removed to prevent confusion.

If you have any doubt that your issue is related to the FAQ material, you should be posting your message in the regular forum areas.
