Damian Conway weighed in on Perl's new features, best practices and future

Comment from me: if you're using new Perl 5 releases so you can use
improvements borrowed from Perl 6 you may want to try Perl 6.
Perl 6 was designed from the ground up but still "feels like" Perl 5.
It is experimental and not ready for production code.  See  Rakudo.org
for more information on Perl 6.  Get a "Rakudo Star" release if you
want to start using it.
