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."

Actually, I'm with the OP on this one. I don't have a problem with typos per se, but their regular presence is a sure sign of sloppy/non-existant editing processes, as are news summaries that only link to the source through 5 other news websites.

I'm NOT complaining, after all, I don't pay for the privilege of reading news here. But it would be a shame to undermine the professionalism of the rest of the site with these simple errors.
