  • My biased view of this is that the up-to-date perl is mainly due to two factors:

    - perl going extreme lengths to be backward compatible (cf. rjw1's link).
    - The debian-perl team and the debian perl-package-maintainer(s) being simply awesome.

    I think the second point is actually somewhat more important. From my point of view as an interested bystander, the debian-perl maintainers seems to be a group of motivated, diligent, clueful, friendly and welcoming people who stem a great load of work collaboratively. They fix issues in the many perl packages very quickly for new perl versions.
