perl-5.18.2 is now available
Message ID:

One of the major mistakes people make is that they think manners are
only the expression of happy ideas.  There's a whole range of behavior
that can be expressed in a mannerly way.  That's what civilization is all
about – doing it in a mannerly and not an antagonistic way.  One of the
places we went wrong was the naturalistic Rousseauean movement of the
Sixties in which people said, "Why can't you just say what's on your
mind?"  In civilization there have to be some restraints.  If we
followed every impulse, we'd be killing one another.

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 5.18.2:

Brian Fraser, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, David Mitchell, Father
Chrysostomos, Graham Knop, Karl Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Nicholas Clark,

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.
