This new version of Perl will bring, as far as I know, a lot of impressive features.
Anyway I think that you should try to learn Perl 5 in order to get familiar with the syntax and with some features that are unique to Perl, including its flexibility.
Anyway check out for more information as well as other Perl related sites.
