perl-5.15.2 is now available
Message ID:

  True, it is strange to live no more on earth,
  no longer follow the folkways scarecely learned;
  not to give roses and other especially auspicious
  things the significance of a human future;
  to be no more what one was in infinitely anxious hands,
  and to put aside even one's name, like a broken plaything.
  Strange, to wish wishes no longer.  Strange, to see
  all that was related fluttering so loosely in space.
  And being dead is hard, full of catching-up,
  so that finally one feels a little eternity.–
  But the living all make the mistake of too sharp discrimination.
  Often angels (it's said) don't know if they move
  among the quick or the dead.  The eternal current
  hurtles all ages along with it forever
  through both realms and drowns their voices in both.

    -- Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino, The First Elegy
       trans., C. F. MacIntyre

It fills us with delight to announce Perl 5.15.2, the third development release
of Perl 5.15.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.15.2 from your favorite CPAN mirror or
find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

    25a0f8b0c0bd5ce969dd0a504eb209364f06e894  perl-5.15.2.tar.bz2
    b0d27bfe5a02c7f6beff869a13ac6eca9e978784  perl-5.15.2.tar.gz

You can find a full list of changes in the file "perldelta.pod" located in the
"pod" directory inside the release and on the web.

Perl 5.15.2 represents approximately 2 months of development since Perl
5.15.1 and contains approximately 17,000 lines of changes across 330
files from 35 authors.

Perl continues to flourish into its third decade thanks to a vibrant
community of users and developers. The following people are known to
have contributed the improvements that became Perl 5.15.2:

Abigail, Andreas König, brian d foy, Brian Greenfield, Chas. Owens,
Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, David Golden, David Mitchell,
Eric Brine, Father Chrysostomos, Florian Ragwitz, Gerard Goossen,
H.Merijn Brand, Jesse Vincent, John Peacock, Karl Williamson, Karthik
Rajagopalan, Keith Thompson, Kevin Ryde, Matthew Horsfall, Mike
Sheldrake, Nicholas Clark, Niko Tyni, Reini Urban, Ricardo Signes,
Salvador Fandiño, Shlomi Fish, Spiros Denaxas, Steffen Müller, Stephen
Oberholtzer, Steve Hay, Tony Cook, Vincent Pit, Zefram.

The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically
generated from version control history. In particular, it does not
include the names of the (very much appreciated) contributors who
reported issues to the Perl bug tracker.

We expect to release Perl 5.15.3 on September 20th.  The next major stable
release of Perl 5, 5.16.0 should appear in Spring 2012.
