Technically, I already announced it, but now I've renamed it. MooX::Pression is now called Zydeco.

It's a musical genre that blends jazz, blues, and Louisiana French Creole, and it just seemed like a good fit for a module that takes what I feel are some of the coolest features of Perl programming, and blen…
The test suite for MooX::Pression used to run in 79 seconds on my laptop. Now it's at 10 seconds.

MooX::Pression allows you to build classes and roles with multimethods, types, method signatures, and sweet, sweet, sugary syntax…
Perl has some really great community websites. But a drawback to this is that the Perl community is centred around a few domain names, which means that it isn't as visible as some other languages.

One thing I think might help spread Perl around the web would be if different Perl projects had their own websites.
