A major relief is that we no longer depend on Perl to build or run the application.

Thank you for the heads up.
Tibbs (cc'ed) is already looking into packaging the new version for Fedora in:
What is the best platform to ask for help if we have problems?
Should we reach directly to you via e-mail, open issues on GitHub?
(I could probably also meet with you in real life if it helps.)
I suppose a major drawback would be lot of bundled 3rd party libraries.
