RPerl, Perl 11, and The Future of Perl Performance

RPerl is the new optimizing compiler for Perl 5. Perl 11 is the philosophy of pluggability and the reunification of Perl 5 with Perl 6. We can currently use RPerl to speed up low-magic Perl 5 code with over 300x performance gain. This talk will discuss the future plans for supporting medium-magic and high-magic Perl 5 code, as well as Perl 6, and beyond.
