We are ready to announce perl v5.19.0 the first development release of
version 19 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl v5.19.0 from your favorite CPAN

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 v5.19.0 represents approximately 0.2857142857 weeks of development
since Perl v5.18.0 and contains approximately 52,000 lines of changes
across 310 files from 6 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 v5.19.0:

Brian Fraser, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Karl Williamson, Nicholas Clark,
Reuben Thomas, Ricardo Signes.

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 are the removal of modules
no longer shipped with Perl's core.  We thank those modules for their
service and wish them luck in their future endeavors.

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

We expect to release version v5.19.0 on June 21, 2013.  The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 20.0, should appear in May 2014.
