    Most of that is within the last year. Quite a lot of it is release since Perl 5.10.0. Does that mean that Perl 5 is dead too?

    If you want to know what happened, why not ask instead of posting matter-of-factly that it's dead? It's very irritating to be told that one work over the last two years might as well have not happened.

      Clearly I should not post when pissed off.

      • For the record, as soon as I read that, I thought “quick, someone tell RJBS!” But it didn’t seem productive to act upon it, so I didn’t respond nor did I ping you.

    • Thanks for your feedback.

      I'm referring to a wiki that hasn't been touched for a long time (OK 1½ years, not two years. Still forever in Internet - and especially Perl time).

      But I'm happy to see that there's a lot of later activity elsewhere.
