Rumors of Perl's death (or imminent death) have been greatly exaggerated. The 
Perl community continues to produce excellent modern software. The number of 
modules available from CPAN has grown at a terrific pace over the last few 
years. 

Some very exciting developments (pun intended) have occured in recent years 
that make developing in Perl an even more enjoyable experience than it was 
before:

- Moose is a post-modern object system that makes OO development easy and even 
fun.
- PSGI/Plack, a new paradigm for web development based on WSGI and Rack
- DBIx::Class continues to evolve as the ultimate way of working with 
databases
- Strawberry Perl makes it a piece of cake to develop, run, and deploy Perl in 
a Winbloze environment 
- Padre is a powerful cross-platform IDE for Perl development

Here are some others you may want to research yourself:

- Try::Tiny
- local::lib
- POE (getting to be an oldie, but still a goodie)
- autobox
- autodie
- Bread::Board
- Fey
- Starman
