Version 1 of Mason (HTML::Mason) has been around since 1998. It is in wide use and is very stable. However it has not changed much in years and does not use much in the way of Modern Perl.

Version 2 of Mason (Mason), along with Poet, is being actively developed and has a much more modern architecture. If you are just starting out, we recommend you give Mason 2 a try.
