jjn1056 writes: "Catalyst 5.8 released!

An Elegant and Powerful MVC Framework for Perl

Catalyst is the fast-growing and premier web development framework for Perl. For the past twelve months we've been working hard to bring out the 5.8 release. Developers and managers alike will love the new features, continued stability, and highly adaptable framework.

Catalyst has the flexibility to connect any technology. From templating language to database layer to JavaScript framework, it makes integration easy. In this release we've also integrated the Moose Object system, the most advanced and useable object-oriented framework available today.

Companies are turning to Catalyst as the web application technology which scales for the full application lifecycle. From small sites to major players like BBC iPlayer, Catalyst is the way to go. Catalyst is proven and in production, serving millions of page views per day and thousands of requests per second.

Catalyst 5.8 is fully tested and backward compatible to version 4.3. Our focus on stability ensures your application can take advantage of future improvements.

Join our vibrant and active community.

It's fast and easy to get started.
