Well, according to the 5.6.0 announcement:

   Perl v5.6.0 is a major release that incorporates all maintenance and
   development changes since the last major release, 5.005.  As you may have
   noticed, the version numbering has changed.  Releases will henceforth
   be numbered as revision.version.subversion triples.  Maintenance releases
   will have an even version component, while the version component for
   development releases will be odd.  For example, the next maintenance
   update of Perl 5.6.0 will be v5.6.1, and the development series will begin
   life at v5.7.0.
