If you’ve visited search.cpan.org in the last day or

traffic to metacpan.org. Let’s talk about what this change
means.

Why is this change taking place?

The maintainers behind search.cpan.org have decided
that it’s time to move on. After many, many years of keeping this site up and
running they have decided to pass on the torch (and the traffic) to
metacpan.org. Myself and the rest of the MetaCPAN team
have been working very
hard to prepare for the influx of new traffic (and new users). On behalf of
Perl users everywhere, the we’d like to thank all of the crew
behind search.cpan.org for their many years of
working behind the scenes to keep this valuable resource up and running.

How does this change CPAN?

It doesn’t. CPAN is the central repository of uploaded Perl modules. Both
search.cpan.org and
metacpan.org are search
