Description aeuii 2018-04-06 20:21:39 UTC
It looks that the recent update of Perl to 5.26 (20180330) broke print/latex-biber.

$ biber

Comment 2 Greg V 2019-06-07 11:09:34 UTC
This is fixed in new versions of biber.

2.11: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D17836

But biber should be kept in sync with biblatex and it's a mess, updating texlive 2015 components via tlmgr is pretty broken, we need a texlive update: bug 211997
