you can disable this warning by setting $CGI::LIST_CONTEXT_WARN to 0 or by using the multi_param() method instead

Nice to know, I wasn't aware of that change.

But: I would have expected a big fat warning (or at least a hint) right at the top of the documentation of There is a warning that is no longer part of the Perl core, and another one deprecating HTML generating functions, but no obvious hint for experienced v3.x users. Sure, I could have read the Changes file, but I would expect API changes like this one to be announced in the main documentation.

To make things worse, the main documentation (still) has porting notes for the ancient that hopefully nobody uses any more, but no notes for porting from the v3.x series to the v4.x series.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
