I think it's time for me to give up the fantasy that 5.8.0 will happen
before the Perl Conference.  The stars just refuse to align properly,
too many loose ends, too many delays, too many annoying mysterious
little problems, too little testing of CPAN modules.  Luckily, nothing
is majorly broken, and I think that I've more or less achieved what I
set out to do with Perl, so I still hope to be able wrap something up
before TPC and call it 5.7.2 (it must happen next week or it will not
happen), and soon after the conference put out the Release Candidate 1
for 5.8.0, and then keep cracking the whip till we are happy with what
we've got.

Please read perl572delta.pod carefully and send in enhancements.

Changes since the last:

        Log: perl built with USE_ITHREADS can deadlock during fork() or backticks
             since it doesn't ensure threads other than the one calling fork()
             aren't holding any locks; the fix is to use pthread_atfork() to
             hold global locks
             
             building perl with -Dusemymalloc exacerbates the problem since
             Perl_malloc() holds a mutex, and perl's exec() calls New()
