Re: Perl 5.22.0

I've just uploaded the files, please point setup at:

setup-{x86,x86_64}.exe -XOs

Please rebuild your Perl distributions again, since officially RCx
releases are not binary compatible with the official ones.

If you've already installed RC2, then you'll have to re-install
everything Perl (setup doesn't recognize 5.22.0-RC2 as being pre-5.22.0
and all distributions that haven't had a version bump in the meantime
still come with the same release number).  Instead of clicking on all
hundreds of selection boxes, you can do this before starting setup:

sed -re 's/(5\.22\.0-)(RC2-)?[0-9]/\10/;s/( perl-.*-)[0-9]+\./\10./' \
 -i.bak /etc/setup/installed.db

This will cause all Perl related stuff to be updated without your manual

This has become less likely, given my work schedule.

At the moment that is plan A, so everyone has about four weeks to build
for Perl 5.22 using the 5.22.0 "private" release.  No rebuilds of
distributions will be necessary with the 5.22.1 version bump.
