perl 5.17.11 is now available
Message ID:
  It's very special because, if you can see, the numbers all go to…
  eleven!  Look, right across the board: eleven, eleven, eleven, eleven!

We are mildly surprised to be announcing version perl 5.17.11, the 12th
development release of version 17 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.17.11 from your favorite CPAN mirror
or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

 1693be337536be278d0109896c2dc1ab863c4160  perl-5.17.11.tar.bz2
 e2a4e95faf9cb994daf1fe9133b568bd1248dfbe  perl-5.17.11.tar.gz

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 5.17.11 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl 5.17.10
and contains approximately 3,800 lines of changes across 130 files from 17

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 5.17.11:

Aaron Crane, Andy Dougherty, Brian Fraser, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A.
Berry, David Mitchell, François Perrad, James E Keenan, Jan Dubois, Karl
Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Max Maischein, Moritz Lenz, Nicholas Clark,
Ricardo Signes, Tony Cook, 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

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.

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