in thread Arguements for upgrading from Perl 5.8

Other than just way much better and more efficient and reliable Unicode support in the most recent version, also the supported Unicode standard was followed:

Perl Unicode release version --------- ------- v5.8.8 4.1.0 v5.8.9 5.1.0 v5.10.0 5.0.0 v5.10.1 5.1.0 v5.12.0 5.2.0 v5.12.1 5.2.0 v5.12.2 5.2.0 v5.12.3 5.2.0 v5.12.4 5.2.0 v5.14.0 6.0.0 v5.14.1 6.0.0

Improvements in 5.14 made it virtually impossible to backport those improvements to 5.12 and older: you cannot take a single (Unicode) module from 5.14's CORE distribution and "upgrade" Unicode to 6.0.0 in 5.12.x


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
