The state of SOAP::Lite - here comes 1.0

I'm about to do something. I'm going to release SOAP::Lite 1.0. And it may break on your implementation. But it may also just work. I've been struggling with how to approach refactoring the monster Makefile.PL, so I've decided to gut it and replace it with something simple. The test suite is robust, so if it does break on your usage, you probably know how to install the needed dependencies, and it will be no big deal.

Things will get a bit bumpy here, but I appreciate your patience. And patches. The new official SOAP::Lite source code repository is at

I had considered requiring every module, but I'd have to rename it to SOAP::Heavy, and that seemed to be a questionable approach.


Hey phred, great to see some movement on SOAP::Lite, and speaking for my very small part of the community, I'm happy to wear some bumpiness to pay for that progress, and I'll do what I can to help.

Hi Phred,

Great to see SOAP::Lite development. Currently, I am using ActiveState perl in Windows and consume SOAP::Lite via PPM. So If SOAP::Lite is not going to come to CPAN , I will not get it via PPM as well. It is easy to consume & deploy via PPM.

SOAP::Lite is not going to be released in CPAN in future? Will it stay only in github?
