  • I would like to add few more packages to this list, these are some of the newer package that seem attractive

    4. KiokuDB
    5. Reaction

    They are most likely not in popular use, but they are the most blogged about

    • but they are the most blogged about

      Yet I'm not familiar with either, and I'm too lazy to look up what it's all about...

      Can you introduce these packages shortly, and most of all, tell us why we should care?

      • KiokuDB is a Moose based object database supporting multiple backend (filesystem, BerkeleyDB, DBI, etc...). You can read more about it here [].

        Reaction is a framework on top of Catalyst and Moose. It aims at making components more reusable. An introduction can be found here [] and here [].

        Both of them are examples of next-generation Perl projects.

        • MooseX::Types::DateTime fails tests, and signatures fails to build :( . I'm having to leave and let my machine find any others, however. Will check back later.
          The new Strawberry Perl for Windows has been released! Check for it.
          • 4 more failures, including Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyse (which crashes), Email::Valid, and MUIR/Time-modules. (I can't recall what the third one was.

            Work on the dependencies, and then the top level will work. :)
