-<p><b>Yes.</b> Perl 6 is not going to make Perl 5 obsolete. It is a different language in the same lineage as Perl 5. The Perl 5 language and the perl5 implementation (currently at version perl-5.12), are actively used, and actively enhanced and developed. As Perl 6 is a different language, perl 5 will continue to see active use and development as Perl 6 matures and becomes usable. Perl 5 is not going away.

 </p><p>At the moment, the Perl 6 implementations are not ready for use in production (due to incompleteness, poor performance and other factors), and if you wish to use any of these two (quite different) languages called "Perl" in production, then Perl 5 is still the sanest choice.
