+<h2 id="news_9_July_2012">9-July-2012: Perl Humour page, #perl FAQ, and other new pages</h2>
+
+<p>
+The last update on the news feed for
+<a href="http://perl-begin.org/">The Perl Beginners’s site</a> was almost a
+year ago. While the site continued to improve, I neglected writing a new
+entry until now, so I hope this one will compensate for that.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+So without further ado, here is what is new:
+</p>
+
+<ol>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+We now have a page about <a href="http://perl-begin.org/humour/">Perl
+Humour</a>, which was restored from a page in the now offline perl.net.au
+wiki.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Also originally from that wiki is the <a
+href="http://perl-begin.org/FAQs/freenode-perl/">Freenode’s #perl channel
+Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) List</a>, which is well worth a read.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Another restored page is
+<a href="http://perl-begin.org/topics/cpan/wrappers-for-distributions/">the
+list of CPAN Wrappers for Distributions</a>.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+We added <a href="http://perl-begin.org/uses/web-automation/">a page</a>
+about web automation in Perl, and <a
+href="http://perl-begin.org/topics/files-and-directories/">one about
+manipulating files and directories</a>.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+The
+<a href="http://perl-begin.org/platforms/windows/">Perl on Windows page</a>
+was enhanced with new links to Strawberry Perl and DWIM Perl.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+
+<li>
+<p>
+We have a new page about
+<a href="http://perl-begin.org/training/">Perl Training Providers</a>, which
+currently only contains a link to <a href="http://perltraining.org/">the Perl
+Training Directory</a>.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+<a href="http://perl-begin.org/tutorials/bad-elements/">The “Perl
+Elements to Avoid” page</a> contains many new entries.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+<a href="http://perl-begin.org/tutorials/modern-perl/">Our mirror of
+the book <i>Modern Perl</i> by chromatic</a> was updated to its latest
+edition.
+</p>
+</li>
+</ol>
+
+<p>
+We hope you find these additions useful or enlightening.
+</p>
