New Features of the Modern Perls

Perl 5.10 added more useful features to the language than any other release since Perl 5.0.0. Perls 5.12 through 5.28 are more recent annual releases that provide important refinements and further enhancements. Perl 5.30 is the most recent release, with Perl 5.32 scheduled for mid-2020.
