Perl 5.10.0 is released
Message ID:
    He would often declare, in speaking his thoughts upon the subject,
    that he did not conceive how the greatest family in England could
    stand it out against an uninterrupted succession of six or seven
    short noses.--And for the contrary reason, he would generally add,
    That it must be one of the greatest problems in civil life, where
    the same number of long and jolly noses, following one another in a
    direct line, did not raise and hoist it up into the best vacancies
    in the kingdom.

Perl 5.10.0 is now out, the first in the 5.10.x major version series,
after a five year long development process. It's currently being
mirrored on CPAN.

A more formal announcement will follow via the usual canals.
I'm told a press release is also in the works.

I would like to thank everyone on perl5-porters for their efforts. I
hope we'll all be proud of what Perl is becoming. And ready to get back
to the keyboard for 5.12, for which, I hope, we'll not wait as long as
we waited for 5.10.

As a personal note, I can't wait to use 5.10 in production. All those
new features are quite exciting, aren't they?

Enjoy !
