[yapc] What's New in Perl

Ricardo Signes will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 that he describes as:
     There are almost twenty thousand lines of documentation describing
     what has changed since perl 5.8. Those docs are where you can find
     out that the // operator is awesome, or that the “r” flag on
     substitution is going to save you typing and bugs, or that you can
     stop worrying so much about your exception handling. Unfortunately,
     they also contain a lot of talk about things like GSVS_mg_SLOPPY or
     engine derecursivisation or what happens now if you try to reset a
     glob reference during global destruction. With most common Unix
     distributions now shipping Perl 5.12, and more and more workplaces
     moving off 5.8, many programmers are faced with reading these
     documents. Instead, you can come listen to the forty minute summary.
