If you want to help out developing new releases of Perl visit the <a href=

<h2>
Version scheme
</h2>
<p>
Perl has used the following <a href=
"http://perldoc.perl.org/perlpolicy.html">policy</a> since the 5.6 release
of Perl:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Maintenance branches (ready for production use) are even numbers (5.8,
5.10, 5.12 etc)
</li>
<li>Sub-branches of maintenance releases (5.12.1, 5.12.2 etc) are mostly
just for bug fixes
</li>
<li>Development branches are odd numbers (5.9, 5.11, 5.13 etc)
</li>
<li>RC (release candidates) leading up to a maintenance branch are called
testing releases
</li>
</ul>
<p>
Please note that branches earlier than 5.8 are no longer supported, though
fixes for urgent issues, for example severe security problems, may
still be issued.
</p>
<p>
Note: please avoid referring to the "symbolic" source releases like
"stable" and "latest", or "maint" and "devel". They are still used here but
only for backward compatibility. The symbolic names were found to cause
more confusion than they are worth because they don't really work with
multiple branches, especially not with multiple maintenance branches, and
especially the "latest" makes absolutely no sense. The "latest" and
"stable" are now just aliases for "maint", and "maint" in turn is the
maintenance branch with the largest release number.
</p>

Source archives for all releases of perl5. You should only need to
look here if you have an application which, for some reason or
another, does not run with the current release of perl5. Be aware
that only 5.004 and later versions of perl are maintained. If you
report a genuine bug in such a version, you will probably be
informed either that it is fixed in the current maintenance
release, or will be fixed in a subsequent one. If you report a bug
in an unmaintained version, you are likely to be advised to upgrade
to a maintained version which fixes the bug, or to await a fix in a
maintained version. No fix will be provided for the unmaintained
version.

This is where we hid the source for perl4, which was superseded by
perl5 years ago. We would really much rather that you didn't use
it. It is definitely obsolete and has security and other bugs. And,
since it's unsupported, it will continue to have them.

Files relevant to the security problem found in 'suidperl' in
August 2000, reported in the bugtraq mailing list. The problem was
found in all Perl release branches: 5.6, 5.005, and 5.004. The
5.6.1 release has a fix for this, as have the 5.8 releases. The
(now obsolete) development branch 5.7 was unaffected, except for
very early (pre-5.7.0) developer-only snapshots. The bug affects
you only if you use an executable called 'suidperl', not if you use
'perl', and it is very likely only to affect UNIX platforms, and
even more precisely, as of March 2001, the only platforms known to
be affected are Linux platforms (all of them, <a href=
"5.0/sperl-2000-08-05/sperl-2000-08-05.txt">as far as we know</a>).
The 'suidperl' is an optional component which is not installed, or
even built, by default. These files will help you in the case you
compile Perl yourself from the source and you want to close the
security hole.

Files relevant to the CERT Advisory CA-97.17.sperl, a security
problem found in 'suidperl' back in 1997. The problem was found
both in Perl 4.036 (the final) (and last) release of Perl 4 and in
early versions of Perl 5 (pre-5.003). The bug affects you only if
you use an executable called 'suidperl', not if you use 'perl', and
it is very likely only to affect UNIX platform. The 'suidperl' is
an optional component which is not installed, or even built, by
default. These files will help you in the (very unlikely) case you
need to use (the obsolete and unsupported) Perl 4 or the early Perl
5s, <b>Perl releases newer than Perl 5.003 do not have this
security problem.</b>
