Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

The new is up!

[ #39890 ] actually looks modern now! This has been in the works for a while now and, as far as I know, Leo Lapworth was the principle designer. And no, this was not a result of the marketing committee. Just another great volunteer who wanted to make Perl not look dead :)

There are other nice things to come, too. I'm really looking forward to some of the changes which are occurring in the Perl community.

Update: Apparently, Foxtons is responsible for sponsoring this work. For those outside the UK: Foxtons, from what I understand, is one of the largest estate agents in the UK. Apparently, they got there by being very innovative and investing in a top-notch IT department. An IT department which, not surprisingly, uses a lot of Perl :)

    • belongs to Tom Christiansen and he let's O'Reilly use it. We don't have any control over that. Maybe O'Reilly would let us do something with it, but it's potentially a valuable enough domain name that they might be loathe to do that.

        Given that they haven't published anything on it since May 2008 (18 months!), that it has a prominent link to "expanded Perl news coverage" (which leads to a marketing page almost as abandoned), and that the only updates it sees are blurbs from feeds which point to mostly irrelevant marketing posts which barely mention Perl (okay, one of the posts has some cringeworthy, copy and paste code), I have difficulty imagining
