ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.66 released
Message ID:

  Night was black, was no use holding back
  'Cause I just had to see, was someone watching me?
  In the mist, dark figures move and twist
  Was all this for real or just some kind of Hell?

  6 6 6, the number of the beast
  Hell and fire was spawned to be released

  -- "The Number Of The Beast" - Iron Maiden
