As Jon said we've been running 5.10 on one server and I just recently installed on another server for a client.  The only issue I found was with the module Text::Query::SimpleString and there is a fix on cpan on their mailing list:  http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2007/07/msg126451.html .

Other then that issues it has been running several sites infe.  If you choose to use 5.10 and run into other issues please post here so we can keep an eye out for them, thanks.

Good luck!
