Perl 6 Tricks and Treats after 6 days
It's not a full week yet since I announced
Perl 6 Tricks and Treats
newsletter and there are almost a 100 subscribers already.
This is nice if we take in account that Perl is dead and Perl 6 is vaporware.
I've sent out 3 messages so far:
enjoy, subscribe and invite others

Padre 0.28 is out
I am late on posting about this but the Padre
development was fairly slow in the past few weeks so there are not many news items. Still a few words:
- the new Padre 0.28 is on CPAN finally with the names in unicode showing correctly
- ppm version of 0.28 for Windows is available
- 0.28 was already packaged for Fedora
- Plugin for initial SVK and SVN integration were released
and I blogged about vim as a Perl IDE

Improving the speed of PPI
The biggest problem of PPI
is that its slow. This causes any code depending on it such at Perl::Critic
or the syntax highlighter of Padre
to be slow.
In the last couple of weeks Semuel Fomberg
has been writing a replacement Tokenizer in C++.
I am sure he'll accept your help.

Padre as ppm for Active Perl on Windows
I am happy to let you know that Padre is now available as a ppm distribution for Active Perl 5.10 on Windows.
In order to install it you'll need to add two repositories:
ppm rep add wxperl http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repository
ppm rep add padre http://www.perlide.org/download/ppm/
and then you can install:
ppm install Alien-wxWidgest
ppm install Wx
ppm install Padre
For up to date information see the

Who is writing about Perl? What do Perlhackers write about?
tells us that his Modern Perl books
site gets very few incoming links from other bloggers in the Perl community.
so I started (again) to wonder
- Who in the Perl community is writing?
- What are they writing about ? Perl? Other stuff?
- Where are their blogs? On use.perl.org, on a personal site or on some large blogging site?
- How can we find them?
I though there are two perl blog aggregators:
and Perlsphere but yesterday I heard about the
Belgian Perl Planet so there might be others out there.
Oh, yes and of course there are also the Parrot Planet and the Perl 6 Planet
I think I should start a project making sure I'll write in my blog about every Perl related blog I see (outside of use.perl.org) at least once with a link to it.
