In 2010 the Perl 5 language switched to a yearly major release cycle with monthly developer releases. Perl has a history of great Unicode support and the new development process has enabled the language to rapidly enhance Unicode functionality and support new Unicode standards. This talk will demonstrate the current state of Unicode in Perl, review the exciting changes in the last few years, and touch on future development.
