Perl 5.17.10 released
Message ID:
The archive informed the automation. Data structures were built, recipes
followed.  A local network was built, faster than anything on Straum, 
but surely safe. Nodes were added, modified by other recipes. The 
archive was a friendly place, with hierarchies of translation keys that 
led them along. Straum itself would be famous for this.

Six months passed. A year.

The omniscient view. Not self-aware really. Self-awareness is much 
over-rated. Most automation works far better as a part of a whole, and 
even if human-powerful, it does not need to self-know.

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 5.17.10 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl 
5.17.9 and contains approximately 77,000 lines of changes across 440 
files from 42 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 5.17.10:

Aaron Crane, Aaron Trevena, Andrew Tam, Andy Dougherty, Anton Nikishaev, 
Brad Gilbert, Brian Fraser, Charlie Gonzalez, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, 
Craig A. Berry, Daniel Dragan, David Golden, David Mitchell, Dominic 
Hargreaves, Florian Ragwitz, George Greer, H.Merijn Brand, James E 
Keenan, Jasmine Ahuja, John Goodyear, John Peacock, Karl Williamson,

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.

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

Thanks to the Pause administrators who fixed the stuck process.
