A one-liner to upgrade Padre's "Almost Six"

First of all Padre 0.44 is out (garu++). In an effort to make upgrading Padre's "Almost Six" to the latest Padre easier for windows users, I thought of this one liner:

perl -MCPAN -e "CPAN->upgrade('/^Padre/')"

Upgrading takes like 5-7 minutes on my new laptop. This will keep you happy until we release the next version of "Almost Six" later this week :) Thanks for Ruslan U. Zakirov for the idea. Padre's "Almost Six" enables you to program Perl 5 and 6 applications on windows. It contains Strawberry Perl, Padre, Rakudo Perl 6 and Padre's Perl 6 plugin in one easy-to-install MSI installer.
