Perl 5.14.1 is now available
Message ID:
   At this point I'm no longer working for a company that makes me sign
   my life away, but by now I'm in the habit.  Besides, I still harbor
   the deep-down suspicion that nobody would pay money for what I write,
   since most of it just helps you do something better that you could
   already do some other way.  How much money would you personally pay
   to upgrade from readnews to rn?  How much money would you pay for
   the patch program?  As for warp, it's a mere game.  And anything you
   can do with perl you can eventually do with an amazing and totally
   unreadable conglomeration of awk, sed, sh and C.

appear in spring 2012.
