Catalyst is probably the answer (best mindshare, proven, active development).

If you want something lightweight yet trendy, Dancer perhaps?  (I
think it has Plack backends and all that good stuff).

Another option could be mst's Web::Simple, though I'm not sure if
anyone is seriously using it in production, it has some clever stuff

    sub (/page/**/edit) { ... }

(without using Devel::Declare or any crazy parsing shit, i.e. in Pure
Perl.  Very clever :-)
