New Features of the Modern Perls (5.10 to 5.24)

Perl 5.10 added more useful features to the language than any other release since Perl 5.0.0. Most people are now using Perl 5.10 or later, but often without taking advantage of those new features.

Perls 5.12 through 5.22 are more recent annual releases of Perl and provide important refinements and enhancements to the extra functionality introduced in Perl 5.10. Perl 5.24 is the next release of Perl, scheduled for mid-2016.

This one-day tutorial provides a detailed introduction to the new and improved features of these modern versions of Perl 5, along with practical examples of how they can improve the performance, robustness, and maintainability of your code.
