I assume (based on past experience) that everything that worked in 5.6 also works in 5.8. does this assumption hold for 5.10?

5.10 has a revamped regexp engine. It's faster and has more features.

There's some differences in the way Unicode is handled. Newer Perls
make more sense, probably, but if you have something that works in 5.6
you should test it a bit when migrating to 5.10.
