I suppose this is more of a BBC report, but the only problems I've found
with the application I'm running are to do with defined(@array) now
issuing a deprecation warning.  I use three such modules, and two
already had an RT ticket with a patch.  I've added a ticket for the
third.  The modules are:

YAML         -
Module::Find -
Net::Server  -

Otherwise 5.16 is looking good running against Dancer, DBIx::Class,
Moose, Plack, Starman, Devel::Cover and a bunch of related stuff.
