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

<p>
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://vipe.technion.ac.il/~shlomif/lecture/Perl/Newbies/">Perl 
for Perl Newbies</a> series, was integrated there. )
</p>

<p>
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://vipe.technion.ac.il/~shlomif/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>

<p>
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.
</p>

<p>
All the content of the old wiki was restored.
</p>

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

<p>
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.
</p>

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