perl 5.6.1 goes gold
Message ID:
Fools' gold, that is.  (Gotcha!)

Don't mirror it, or announce it, or slashdot it, or do dang fool
things with it.  Not just yet, anyway.

Do try it on your pet esoteric platforms and random CPAN gunk.  And
tell me why I'd be a fool to call this Perl 5.6.1.

To start you off, I know at least one good reason not to go gold
with it--perldelta.pod hasn't been updated.  See if you can spot
all the other foolish things in there.

Maybe tomorrow will be a smart day for Perl.  :-)
