General Development "Today the Perl Foundation announces the release of Perl 5.10, the first major upgrade to the wildly popular dynamic programming language in over five years. This latest version builds on the successful 5.8.x series by adding powerful new language features and improving the Perl interpreter itself. The Perl development team, called the the Perl Porters, have taken features and inspiration from the ambitious Perl 6 project, as well as from chiefly academic languages and blended them with Perl's pragmatic view to practicality and usefulness."

I thought that she'd been put to sleep a long time ago. There's so little perl news nowadays. Only jokes about the vaporware king of the free software universe.... i know perl 5-5.8 is used extensively and I haven nothing bad to say about the language at all ... it's just reading this post makes it feel like I am seeing a ghost.
