Perl 5.19.11 is now available!
Message ID:
  O rigorous mathematics, I have not forgotten you since your wise
  lessons, sweeter than honey, filtered into my heart like a refreshing
  wave.  Instinctively, from the cradle, I had longed to drink from your
  source, older than the sun, and I continue to tread the sacred
  sanctuary of your solemn temple, I, the most faithful of your
  devotees.  There was a vagueness in my mind, something thick as smoke;
  but I managed to mount the steps which lead to your altar, and you
  drove away this dark veil, as the wind blows the draught-board.  You
  replaced it with excessive coldness, consummate prudence and
  implacable logic.  With the aid of your fortifying milk, my intellect
  developed rapidly and took on immense proportions amid the ravishing
  lucidity which you bestow as a gift on all those who sincerely love
  you.  Arithmetic!  Algebra!  Geometry!  Awe-inspiring trinity!
  Luminous triangle!  He who has not known you is a fool!

    -- Isidore-Lucien Ducasse [as "Comte de Lautréamont"],
       /Les Chants de Maldoror/, trans. Paul Knight

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 5.19.11 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.19.10 and contains approximately 3,600 lines of changes across 140
files from 18 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 850 lines of changes to 72 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

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 5.19.11:

Aaron Crane, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Daniel Dragan,
David Golden, David Mitchell, H.Merijn Brand, Hiroo Hayashi, Karl
Williamson, Matthew Horsfall, Ricardo Signes, Shirakata Kentaro,
Smylers, Steve Hay, Thomas Sibley, Tony Cook, Zefram, Ævar Arnfjörð

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.

Many of the changes included in this version originated in the CPAN
modules included in Perl's core. We're grateful to the entire CPAN
community for helping Perl to flourish.

For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors,
please see the AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.

The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 20.0, should appear in
May 2014, with version 21.0 released around the same time.
