Windows release needs newer version of Perl

For the next release we should make the windows bin release include a newer version of Perl. Later versions of Perl recognise invalid UTF-8 characters as such and doesn't fail on them. This is necessary to work with Georgy's change for processing UTF-16 specific (and non-UTF8) characters in Diego's PDF.
