Somewhat Perl 6 lost his reason to be since Perl 5 got his development resumed few years back.

So, Perl 5 himself evolved quite a bit these last fifteen years. Several features from Perl 6 ended being backported to Perl 5, and new ones was implemented, to the point that both languages now evolves in parallel. In many ways, Perl 6 got so long to be usable that Perl 5 got a life of his own.

Now we are in the odd situation of the old language supplanting the new one.
