Network Maintenance (May 14, 2017 - 05:00 UTC)

Our hosting facility (Phyber) is performing maintenance in order to upgrade their networking equipment.  This may result in some perl.org services being unavailable for the next few hours as hardware is forklifted.

Affected services may include:
  • perl.org email and mailing lists
  • pm.org email and mailing lists
  • rt.perl.org
  • rt.cpan.org
  • pause.perl.org
  • nntp.perl.org
  • some perl.org websites
  • search.cpan.org from some locations
  • (and others)
The new hardware sure looks pretty!


perl.org has a new look!

Thanks to Babs Veloso (@babsveloso) for her hard work on creating a fresh new look for the perl.org websites!  It's live now!

Thew new design is clean and responsive for a better experience on sizes and shapes of devices.  It brings the site up to date with current best practices for design and implementation.  We're very excited.  It's hard to believe it's been almost 8 years since we launched the previous look.
