Basically the book is fine for 5.9.  I'm not aware of any overt bad practice advertised in the book that would have been exposed by 5.9.  The PSGI stuff is mostly internal, and the book is basically not about internals.  I guess the deployment chapter could do with a bit of an update from that perspective, but that's a small part of what the book covers, and the deployment recipes in the book will still work fine.

I was thining about a 2nd edition in 2013 depending on what else I've got on by then.  I can rule one out for this year, unless the publisher agitates to get one going ASAP and manages to find someone else to take over (which I think is unlikely right now).
