Hello,

I'm currently bitten hard by a bug which was introduced by RedHat in their
perl releases. This bug has been fixed "recently", to be true in January, by
RedHat.

The bug I'm talking about is a performance issue, which is caused by
overloading blessed functions:
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2357


The bug fix (January 2009):
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2009-0117.html

claims to fix
379791 <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=379791> - perl
bless/overload performance problem

I wanted to ask if we can expect CentOS to release a new version of perl
soon, or if we should rather tend building our own packages. I'd prefer the
CentOS update, due to the reason that I don't know if we'll have the same
problems with this in mod_perl as well.

Kind regards,
Georg
