Mod_perl2 incompatible changes

Just a quick heads up to everyone using RT (of any version) with
mod_perl2. The latest release, version 2.0.0-RC5, also known as
1.999_22, contains a large number of changes which are COMPLETELY
INCOMPATIBLE with all previous versions.

See this email message for details:

http://gossamer-threads.com/lists/modperl/modperl/80048

and this webpage:

http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/rename.html

These changes, I believe, will completely break the mod_perl2 support
in RT (or at the very least the configuration of such a system).

in RT (or at the very least the configuration of such a system).

Short version: they finally realized that mod_perl2 is not just a
drop in replacement for mod_perl1, and shouldn’t be treated that way in
the namespace.

Alas, this will likely make life difficult for people who want to be
compatible with both releases. It will be interesting to see how this
one shakes out.

In any event, RC4 does seem to work ok with RT.

I suppose, having eaten lunch now, that I should clarify that. :slight_smile:

The real problem, as I understood it from The Early Days (ie: last
year) was that they’d collide if you tried to have both of them on the
same system – and there were good and valid reasons to do that.
