Perlcast 10 has been released to the world. This week contains Perl news for the week ending on the 21st of May 2005, an interview with Allison Randal of The Perl Foundation, a little talking about scripting GMail and about trusted Perl modules.
This week I had a new mic, which helped a lot with the show sound. However, I also dropped the show bitrate down from 96 to 64. Be sure to let me know if the change is intolerable.
Lots of news this week. Below, you can find links to each of the topics mentioned.
