Thanks for the links, daxim.

I should've been more specific: I'm more interested in the major modern changes and additions since 5.8. Sorry for not being specific enough.

Some examples of what I'd like to know:

  • When was given/when added?
  • When was smart match added?
  • Have there been any pragmas added which, when used, deprecate older less-recommended features?

And the biggest, which I was unable to articulate until just now: What do the "use 5.$X" pragmas get me? Which features do they enable/disable?

Thanks so much!

    Many of your questions are answered by the documentation for the feature pragma

      Yes, it appears that's what I was looking for! Thank you.
