Perl 5.17.3 is now available!
Message ID:

  Cut 16 Perl Onions into quarters and put them in a grill smoker rack
  or a perforated pan over a BBQ using hickory wood chips or Special
  Blend Smoker Bisquettes.  Smoke them for an hour and remove once they
  look golden brown.
  Let them cool and put them in the fridge (or freezer) until you are
  ready to create the soup.


  16 diced, pre-smoked, Perl Onions
  3 tbsp butter
  1/4 cup olive oil
  2 small garlic cloves, finely minced
  1 tsp salt
  1 tsp sugar
  black pepper to taste
  1 cup red wine
  1/4 cup all purpose flour
  6 cups of beef or vegetable stock
  1 cup of thick cream (milk can be used as a substitute)


  Melt the butter in a pan and then add olive oil.
  Heat and add the onions to caramelize over a medium-high heat for up
    to half an hour.
  Add the garlic, turn down the heat and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  Add the salt, pepper and sugar.
  Now add the red wine and reduce to a jam like consistency.
  Add the flour, stir well and add the stock a cup at a time.
  Simmer for 30 minutes, add the cream and heat to almost boiling.

You can find a full list of changes in the file "perldelta.pod" located
in the "pod" directory inside the release and on the web.

Perl 5.17.3 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.17.2 and contains approximately 85,000 lines of changes across 470
files from 24 authors.

Perl continues to flourish into its third decade thanks to a vibrant
community of users and developers.  The following people are known to
have contributed the improvements that became Perl 5.17.3:

Andy Dougherty, Chip Salzenberg, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A.
Berry, Daniel Dragan, Dave Rolsky, David Leadbeater, David Mitchell,
Eric Brine, Father Chrysostomos, Goro Fuji, James E Keenan, Jan Dubois,
Joaquin Ferrero, Karl Williamson, Nicholas Clark, Paul Marquess, Reini
Urban, Ricardo Signes, Robin Barker, Shirakata Kentaro, Steffen Müller,
Steve Hay, Tony Cook.

The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically
generated from version control history.  In particular, it does not
include the names of the (very much appreciated) contributors who
reported issues to the Perl bug tracker.

Many of the changes included in this version originated in the CPAN
modules included in Perl's core.  We're grateful to the entire CPAN
community for helping Perl to flourish.

For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors,
please see the F<AUTHORS> file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release Perl 5.17.4 on 20 September 2012.  The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 5.18.0, should appear in May 2013.
