CamelBones is about giving you more options for your Cocoa development. Objective-C is really quite nice - but it's not a perfect fit for every situation. There are occasions when you might find yourself saying "this would be so much simpler in Perl," or find yourself writing functionality that already exists in CPAN. Or, you might be reluctant to learn a new language, when all you really want to do is provide a Aqua interface to a Perl script you've already written.

CamelBones is a framework that gives you the option of using Perl when and where you need to - without taking away from you the option of using Objective-C wherever that's a better choice. Alternatively, you might want to add a little bit of Perl to an Objective-C application, but you're getting bogged down in the complexity of Perl's embedding API. Or you've waded your way through that, only to find out that now you have to ship separate versions of your application for Jaguar, Panther and Tiger, as libperl isn't binary-compatible from 5.6 to 5.8, and it's in a different location for each OS.

What's New:
This release corrects all of the known compatibility issues with regard to Intel-based Macs.
Also added to this release are a few additional CPAN modules - DBIx::Class, DateTime, and their prerequisites.
