Python: A popular language among Web site builders. It includes features missing from Perl

Huh?

And I really like how they stop the Perl lineage at 4.000 in 1991. Because nothing notable in Perl has been released since...

    If you look carefully there is a arrow on the right inidicating that story continues per legend (perhaps ran out of time, space, and labour).

      Yes, but plenty of other languages have multiple version updates continuing onward. I would think that Perl 5 is a fairly major change from Perl 4 and by 2001 when the graph ends, I think that Perl 5.005 was the modern version of Perl at the time.
