Parent article: Perl 6? Yeah, right.
first of all, it is worth noting that perl5 has not been standing still.
since perl6 was announced in 2001, perl5 has seen bug fixes and performance
improvements go into subsequent minor verions. so if you use perl5, it is
still getting better. that said, i am excited about perl6. optional strong
typing, optional haskell-like function definitions, rules (the new
regexes), and better support for concurrency are just a start. and the best
thing is that perl6 will come out with CPAN behind it. CPAN still has no
peer. 2007 is going to be a great year for perl6.
