> I also think that the many Perl 5 contributors who have slaved away these past years to bring 5.8 and 5.10 into the world can be justifiably miffed that their heroic efforts are so easily dismissed by comments like this.
well I thought it was quite clear that I was talking about the marketing effect of an official new major release.
Of course Perl5 is evolving but - sadly - it's not noticed!
And I don't care how the sum of all these heroic efforts should be called as long as it is a good name.
So what do you suggest? Perl5++, Perl5NT, Perl 5000?
IMHO alone the existence of "Perl6" project psychologically hinders efforts towards a new major release of Perl5.
PS: I have to say don't like these rhetorical tricks ...
