Hi,

So this is the 20th birthday of Perl and it is also
the release date of Perl 5.10 the latest version of Perl.

There are many new features in the language such as

* switch statement
* say
* state to create static ... err, I mean state variables
* defined-or //
* Smart Match operator ~~
* Regular expressions
  - Recursive patterns
  - Named Capture Buffers
  - Possessive Quantifiers
* Lexical my $_
* Stacked filetest operators

you can and should of course read the details in
http://search.cpan.org/~rgarcia/perl-5.10.0/pod/perl5100delta.pod

but I am also going to give a talk about it on the upcoming Perl Workshop
on 31 December.
