Perl 5.17.

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 5.17.5 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.17.4 and contains approximately 17,000 lines of changes across 310
files from 32 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 5.17.5:

Aaron Crane, Adrian M. Enache, Andy Dougherty, Brad Gilbert, Chris
'BinGOs' Williams, Colin Kuskie, Craig A. Berry, Daniel Dragan, David
Golden, David Mitchell, Dominic Hargreaves, Eric Brine, Father
Chrysostomos, Florian Ragwitz, H.Merijn Brand, James E Keenan, Jerry
D. Hedden, Jesse Luehrs, Karl Williamson, Nicholas Clark, Niko Tyni,
Paul Johnson, Peter Martini, Reini Urban, Ricardo Signes, Ruslan
Zakirov, Sawyer X, Smylers, Steffen Müller, Steve Hay, Tony Cook, Yves

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 5.17.6 on November 20.  The next major stable
release of Perl 5, version 5.18.0, should appear in May 2013.
