all hail perl 5.10!

Today, Rafael Garcia-Suarez and the Perl 5 Porters released perl 5.10. This is totally fantastic. Perl 5.10 contains a whole lot of great new features, from small but helpful changes to error messages to new ways to scope variables and, well, all kinds of other stuff. I gave a talk about 5.10’s new features at PPW, and I look forward to getting to start using some of these features in production code ASAP.

Which of my dists will require 5.10 first? I have one in mind.
