Catalyst is a MVC framework for Perl web application development. It’s similar in concept to Ruby on Rails (for Ruby) and Apache Struts (for Java). It’s been on my TODO list for nearly a year. I’ve started using it this week and am very impressed.
Here’s a good introductory article on what Catalyst is and an example application (using Ajax! so sexy!).

I call it “cattle-lust” just for fun. There’s a certain mad cow in every web developer.
