7 As POE moves closer towards the Common Sense axis, it sometimes
8 diverges away from the Backwards Compatible axis. If this version is
9 being installed over a previous one, please check the Changes file to
10 see what it might break. Interface changes usually are documented.

13 POE may be installed through the CPAN shell in the usual CPAN shell
14 manner. It typically is:

24 POE can also be installed manually. The latest CPAN version can be
25 found at <ftp://ftp.cpan.org/pub/CPAN/authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/> or in
26 a similarl named directory at your favorite CPAN mirror. The most
27 recent development snapshot, which only rarely contains heinous
28 showstopper bugs, is available from the author's web site at
29 <http://www.newts.org/~troc/poe.html>.
