Bugzilla 4.5 will require Perl 5.10.1
This is just a quick note to let you know that once we branch for Bugzilla 4.4 in May, I will commit a patch which will make Bugzilla 4.5 and newer to require Perl 5.10.1 as a minimum. This means Bugzilla won’t support Perl 5.8.x anymore. So Bugzilla 4.4 will be the last release to support the oldish Perl 5.8.x. This new requirement is tracked in bug 655477.
