Yes, they are both mature, but Perl is also evolving, especially with the active development of Perl 6 (actually even Perl 5). Being mature and evolving are not mutually exclusive, in this sense, Perl shares a path that is more similar to Java's.

To be fair C++ isn't standing still either. See Strousop's The design of C++0x (pdf) for example.

It's just a bit harder to spot since perl doesn't have the advantages of multiple implementations and a standards body ;-)

erix just did a 12 km-run. Slow, but unstoppable!
[choroba]: My recent record is 10km in 1 hour :)
[perldigious]: Nice erix... perldigious' legs are so sore from portaging his kayak from place to place last weekend he can barely hobble 12m. :-)
[erix]: you're faster than me then :)
[erix]: well, at the moment, that is :)
