perl-5.14.4 is released
Message ID:
    He began to sing, but gave it up after a while. This vast arena of
    mountains, gleaming like whitely hooded ghosts on every side, did not
    encourage such ebullience. Presently George glanced at his watch.

    'Should be there in an hour,' he called back over his shoulder to
    Chuck.  Then he added, in an afterthought: 'Wonder if the computer's
    finished its run. It was due about now.'

    Chuck didn't reply, so George swung round in his saddle. He could just
    see Chuck's face, a while oval turned towards the sky.

    'Look,' whispered Chuck, and George lifted his eyes to heaven. (There
    is always a last time for everything.)

    Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out.

        -- The Nine Billion Names of God, Arthur C. Clarke

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 5.14.4 represents approximately 5 months of development since Perl 5.14.3
and contains approximately 1,700 lines of changes across 49 files from 12

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 5.14.4:

Andy Dougherty, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Christian Hansen, Craig A. Berry,
Dave Rolsky, David Mitchell, Dominic Hargreaves, Father Chrysostomos,
Florian Ragwitz, Reini Urban, Ricardo Signes, Yves Orton.

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

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

The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 18.0, should appear in
May 2013.
