5.10.1 is released
Message ID:
    'Briefly, sir, I am the Permanent Under-Secretary of State, known as
    the Permanent Secretary. Woolley here is your Principal Private
    Secretary. I, too, have a Principal Private Secretary, and he is the
    Principal Private Secretary to the Permanent Secretary. Directly
    responsible to me are ten Deputy Secretaries, eighty-seven Under
    Secretaries and two hundred and nineteen Assistant Secretaries.
    Directly responsible to the Principal Private Secretaries are plain
    Private Secretaries. The Prime Minister will be appointing two
    Parliamentary Under-Secretaries and you will be appointing your own
    Parliamentary Private Secretary.'

    'Can they all type?' I joked.

    'None of us can type, Minister,' replied Sir Humphrey smoothly. 'Mrs
    McKay types - she is your Secretary.'

    I couldn't tell whether or not he was joking. 'What a pity,' I said.
    'We could have opened an agency.'

    Sir Humphrey and Bernard laughed. 'Very droll, sir,' said Sir
    Humphrey.  'Most amusing, sir,' said Bernard. Were they genuinely
    amused at my wit, or just being rather patronising? 'I suppose they
    all say that, do they?' I ventured.

    Sir Humphrey reassured me on that. 'Certainly not, Minister,' he
    replied. 'Not quite all.'

Currently it's at

But presumably it will be at

once it's had time to propagate to CPAN's mirrors, so don't publicise the
first two URLs.

A .gz version also available for the decompressionally challenged.
