Awesome. There are still nits, but you have already made those
clear yourself, and it’s a huge improvement over the promising
first draft, so I’m confident you’ll get there.

I see nothing wrong with the placement of elements.

Some nits:

• Catalyst is not GPL, it’s under the Perl terms = GPL/Artistic.

• “Web development” repeated in the slogan text; and I think
  there is no need to restrict the turbocharging claim to just
  *Perl* web development. I don’t have a bright idea for how to
  improve this just yet though.

• The way the logo is watermarked on the header bar, it repeats
  right underneath the logo that’s already just above it. Makes
  for an odd effect.

• “Developers” in the top navigation bar. Argh! :-) Maybe this
  could be something like “Repository”? (Unless, of course, you
  mean something else.)

• The text in the left column: I don’t have a good suggestion off
  hand, but if you want, I can spend some time thinking about it.
  (Are you on IRC? We might confer/brainstorm a bit.)

I like it a lot. Keep going.
