in thread 2021 is the year to drop support for Perl < 5.12?

GitHub Actions supports a wider variety of platforms (multiple versions of Ubuntu, multiple versions of Mac OS, and multiple versions of Windows), has some nice features like caching of dependencies between builds, and offers more concurrent processes. Those last two features allow builds to finish faster than Travis does, even if I'm now running more builds to cover more platforms.

Yeah, I can't say I was especially happy about Microsoft buying Github; they are not as bad as they once were, but will definitely need keeping a watchful eye on for the foreseeable future. However Microsoft have always relied on having support from grassroots developers, so in this case they have a strong incentive to not make a mess of things.
