Since there were a lot of small changes since 2.0rc2 I decided to release
another rc version before the final 2.0 release. If no additional bugs are
found this will turn into Embperl 2.0.0

Any bug reports, patches, documentation updates, spelling corrections are
welcome. So give it a try...

Embperl is a system for building dynamic websites with Perl.

It gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML/XML documents and the
ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in an
object-oriented style.

Embperl has several features which are especially useful for creating
Websites, including dynamic tables, form field processing, URL
escaping/unescaping, session handling, caching, xslt transformation and

See (english) or
