quote "In case you’re wondering: the big ones are 5.8.8, 5.10.1, 5.14.2 and 5.16.2."

If I'm not wrong does this chart indicate that more than 50% of the users are on versions <=14.2.

Please explain...

This stats are a brilliant source! thanks.

But I think it would be even more interesting to get them from activestate too.*

My colleagues "never" used cpan before and never heard of cpanm.

Others might only use system Perl and their local package manager.

I think it's a bit like polling for the average age of defloration - but only in a monastery. It's of limited use for the whole population.

*) hmm ... there was a talk at YAPC::NA-2016 from an ActiveState guy ... -> ah here

    Nice try, o Master of Confusion, the cited article is six-and-a-half years old. Sigh.

    From the 2018 survey cited:

    "The most popular version is 5.24, while the latest version, 5.26, is second to last. The other section had various responses, including older version like 5.8, 5.1."

    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
