I'm pleased to announce a significant update to, the Perl documentation website.

The main change is a complete new visual design, bringing a fresh, modern look to the site. Additionally there are a number of new features to aid navigation and usability - a floating page index window, recently read pages list, improved Pod rendering, and many more.

Over the next few weeks I'm planning a few more updates, including extending the site to hold documentation for all Perl 5.8.x releases.

I've tested the new design using a variety of browsers, but if anything looks amiss please email me at with your OS and browser versions, and if possible a screenshot.
