<h2 id="news_07_Jul_2006">07-July-2006: The wiki is now part of <a href="http://perl.net.au/">perl.net.au</a></h2>

The contents of our wiki were integrated into the 
<a href="http://perl.net.au/">perl.net.au MediaWiki</a> as 
<a href="http://perl.net.au/wiki/New_to_Perl">its "New to Perl?" section</a>.
This was done to consolidate the Perl wiki'ing efforts, because there's much
more action on perl.net.au than there was on our wiki, and for ease of 
maintenace. Our wiki will be removed soon.

Also of note is <a href="$(ROOT)/wikis/">a new section of the site on
Perl-related wikis</a>.

<h2 id="news_04_Nov_2005">04-November-2005: Perlmeme.org</h2>

There's <a href="http://perlmeme.org/">a new site for Perl beginners called
Perlmeme.org</a>. It collects tutorials, howto documents, and frequently
asked questions (FAQ) lists. I was referred to its developers by a mutual
friend, and since then became heavily involved in its development. (E.g.: some of the material from
my <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/lecture/Perl/Newbies/">Perl 
for Perl Newbies</a> series, was integrated there. )

Perlmeme.org tries to be as up-to-date as possible and is certainly worth 
checking out. On a different note, I'd like to mention that I went over the
material in the 
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/lecture/Perl/Newbies/">Perl 
for Perl Newbies</a> series and heavily updated and corrected it. It should
be much better now.

<h2 id="news_06_Jun_2005">06-June-2005: Wiki Restored</h2>

The <a href="<wiki:link />">Wiki</a> was heavily spammed and so was taken
off. Now, a new wiki was set up with a better implementation - 
<a href="http://wikipedia.sourceforge.net/">MediaWiki</a>, and now we monitor
the RSS feed and use other measurements to prevent Spam.

All the content of the old wiki was restored.

<h2 id="news_29_Feb_2004">29-February-2004: New Wiki</h2>

We now have <a href="<wiki:link />">a new Wiki with a better 
implementation</a>. The previous wiki was dumped because it was a Java Script
hell and was quite lame in its conventions. The newer wiki implementation 
(<a href="http://www.pmichaud.com/wiki/PmWiki/PmWiki">PmWiki</a> to be exact)
is much better in this and other regards.

All the content from the old wiki was transferred to the new one. We hope
you'd like it better.
