Submission + - Choosing a new web language that's not too buzzy 1

adelayde writes: In my day job, I work on a web based service with a lot of legacy code written in that older (and some may say venerable) web-scripting language, Perl. Although we use Modern Perl extensions such as Moose the language just seems to be ossifying — http://ttfa.net/perldidntwin — and we're wanting to move to a more up-to-date and used language for web applications, or even an entire framework, to do new development. We're still planning to support the legacy code for a number of years to come; that's unavoidable.

This is a fairly big project and it's mission critical to the business. The thing we're afraid of is jumping onto something that is too new and too buzzy — http://ttfa.net/lemonmarket — as we'd like to make a technology decision that would be good at least for the next five years, if not more, and today's rising star could quite easily be in tomorrow's dustbin.

What language and/or framework would you recommend we adopt?
