Modern Perl: the book is getting a second edition.
We're not calling it a second edition. We're calling it the 2011-2012 edition, because it covers Perl 5.12 and 5.14.
I've edited the book again, updated it for new features of Perl 5.14, fixed several reported bugs in the first edition, and have improved the coverage of new ideas and trends in the world of modern Perl while removing some things that turned out not to have been good ideas.
I'd like to get the book to the printer in the next couple of weeks. Here's how you can help.
Modern Perl: The Book: 2011 - 2012 edition, the draft is available as a letter-sized PDF. I'll leave it up for a couple of weeks. Please report errors of content at the Modern Perl book repository. (Please also update CREDITS if you provide a pull request or remind me to do so, if you're not already credited.) Feel free to ignore any formatting errors; there are likely a few.
This edition will also have free electronic copies when the printed edition comes out. We've also discussed hosting a web version of the book on this very site; is that interesting to you?
Thanks for reading.
