Perl Catalog Expansion

I’m excited to announce that we’ve just added 5,000 of the most popular modules from CPAN to our Perl catalog on the ActiveState Platform. That means you now have 10x as many modules you can now work with to build runtime environments for your projects.

The easiest way to get started is just to create a new build using our updated “Create Runtime” wizard, but you can also modify any of the runtimes you’ve previously created.

Note that if ActiveState created your runtime for you, we’re currently in the process of updating them for use with the new modules. If you experience any issues, please report them here, or send an email to
