Major Improvements are that Embperl now supports Perl up to 5.12.2 and
a lot of additions to Embperl::Form, a module for building smart webforms.


Embperl is a system for building dynamic websites with Perl.

It gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML/XML documents and 
the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in an 
object-oriented style. 

Embperl has several features which are especially useful for creating 
Websites, including dynamic tables, form field processing, URL 
escaping/unescaping, session handling, caching, xslt transformation and 

See (english) or (german) for more information.
