perl 5.19.10 is now available
Message ID:
  The urge to discover secrets is deeply ingrained in human nature; even
  the least curious mind is roused by the promise of sharing knowledge
  withheld from others. Some are fortunate enough to find a job which
  consists in the solution of mysteries, whether it be the physicist who
  tracks down a hitherto unknown nuclear particle or the policeman who
  detects a criminal. But most of us are driven to sublimate this urge
  by the solving of artificial puzzles devised for our entertainment.
    -- "The Decipherment of Linear B", John Chadwick

We are well chuffed to announce version 19.10, the eleventh development
release of version 19 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.19.10 from your favorite CPAN
mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

 3c6e0a0f24fb4c02e4c5dcc63e5574ab15f4bb9c  perl-5.19.10.tar.gz
 ab107ad2bd007c373c9afdc06e077a517af3b986  perl-5.19.10.tar.bz2

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 5.19.10 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.19.9 and contains approximately 13,000 lines of changes across 330
files from 20 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 8,800 lines of changes to 220 .pm, .t, .c and .h

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 5.19.10:

Aaron Crane, Andy Dougherty, Aristotle Pagaltzis, Chris 'BinGOs'
Williams, Craig A. Berry, Daniel Dragan, David Mitchell, Father
Chrysostomos, H.Merijn Brand, Jerry D. Hedden, Karl Williamson,
Matthew Horsfall, Nicholas Clark, Paul Johnson, Peter Rabbitson,
Ricardo Signes, Steffen Müller, Steve Hay, 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 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.

We expect to release version 5.19.11 on 20th April 2014.  The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 20.0, should appear in May 2014.
