View Full Version : Perlish tarballs available

As was discussed a few months ago, Amanda's going to Perl. That means that we're building Perl interfaces to the Amanda core, and beginning to rewrite Amanda applications in Perl.

This will be a part of the next release, which is coming up soon. Of course, it's a big change, so we need some serious help testing it out. To that end, we have a tarball available on the community builds page:

Please download the patch and test it out. Detailed instructions are at
Please let us know about any errors you encounter.

If you're a Perl hacker, please also take a look at
and consider chipping in.

I will be hosting an interactive webinar on the 17th to talk about this exciting work, and how you can get involved. See http://www.zmanda.com/events.html for the details.
