+<h2 id="news_27_July_2009">27-July-2009: Updates to Perl-Begin.org</h2>
+
+<p>
+After the last news item, a lot of work was invested into <a href="$(ROOT)">Perl-Begin.org, the Perl Beginners' Site</a>, making
+it even better than it used to be. Here's a summary of the changes:
+</p>
+
+<ul>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+<a href="$(ROOT)learn/who-is-using/">A testimonials page</a>
+was added, with some honest-to-God testimonial quotes which are now featured in
+the Testimonials side-bar.  
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+There's a new <a href="$(ROOT)IDEs-and-tools/">IDEs and
+tools page</a>, featuring some Integrated Development Environments.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+There's a new <a href="$(ROOT)blogs/">page sporting links
+to collections of blogs</a>.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Several new topical pages were added:
+</p>
+<ol>
+
+<li><a href="$(ROOT)uses/databases/">Perl and Databases</a></li>

+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Many writing errors (spelling, grammar, syntax, phrasing, etc.) have been
+corrected by <a href="http://alanhaggai.org/">Alan Haggai Alavi</a>. He
+seems to have a good eye for catching such problems, and I am indebted to
+him.
+</p>
+</li>

+<li>
+<p>
+Corrected several broken links including those to Ovid's CGI course.
