 =head1 Core Enhancements
 
-=head2 New read-only predefined variable C<${^SAFE_LOCALES}>
+=head2 XXX
 
-This variable is 1 if the Perl interpreter is operating in an
-environment where it is safe to use and change locales (see
-L<perllocale>.)  This variable is true when the perl is
-unthreaded, or compiled in a platform that supports thread-safe locale
-operation (see next item).
-
-=head2 Locales are now thread-safe on systems that support them
-
-These systems include Windows starting with Visual Studio 2005, and in
-POSIX 2008 systems.
-
-The implication is that you are now free to use locales and changes them
-in a threaded environment.  Your changes affect only your thread.
-See L<perllocale/Multi-threaded operation>
-
-=head2 Script runs now are specified with a different syntax
-
-This isn't really an enhancement, but is being put in this category
-because it changes an enhancement from 5.27.8, and there is a new
-abbreviated form for it.  The syntax is now either of:
-
- (*script_run:...)
- (*sr:...)
-
-Previously a C<"+"> was used instead of the C<"*">.
-
-=head2 There is a new form for script runs which combines with
-C<(?E<gt>...)> (or C<*atomic:...)>)
-
-C<(*asr:...> is an easier way to write C<(*sr:(?E<gt>...))>,
-which is expected to be a commonly used idiom.
-C<(*atomic_script_run:...> is also available.  See
-L<perlre/Script Runs>.
-
-=head2 Experimentally, there are now alphabetic synonyms for some
-regular expression assertions
-
-If you find it difficult to remember how to write certain of the pattern
-assertions, there are now alphabetic synonyms.
-
- CURRENT                NEW SYNONYMS
- ------                 ------------
- (?=...)        (*pla:...) or (*positive_lookahead:...)
- (?!...)        (*nla:...) or (*negative_lookahead:...)
- (?<=...)       (*plb:...) or (*positive_lookbehind:...)
- (?<!...)       (*nlb:...) or (*negative_lookbehind:...)
- (?>...)        (*atomic:...)
-
-These are considered experimental, so using any of these will raise
-(unless turned off) a warning in the C<experimental::alpha_assertions>
-category.
