Perl 64-bit versionsby BrowserUk (Pope)

BrowserUk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Finally, it is time to upgrade my 64-bit installation. But to what? How "good" are the versions available?
The flurry of new major versions that followed 5.10.1 left me cold. So I decided to wait it out until some sanity returned.
There's no doubt that many would suggest "get the latest" version, but memories of 5.8.0, 5.8.2 5.8.5 make me reluctant.
Anyone have any "Don't use" 5.12.x or 5.14.x (with emphasis on 64-bit Win) they'd care to share?
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
