Perl 5.21.3 has been released.
Message ID:
If they just went straight they might go far,
They are strong and brave and true;
But they're always tired of the things that are,
And they want the strange and new.
They say: "Could I find my proper groove,
What a deep mark I would make!"
So they chop and change, and each fresh move
Is only a fresh mistake.

    -- The Men that Don't Fit In by Robert Service

We are thrilled to announce version 21.3,
the 4th development release of version 19 of Perl 5.

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 5.21.3 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl 5.21.2
and contains approximately 21,000 lines of changes across 250 files from 25

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 18,000 lines of changes to 160 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

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 5.21.3:

Aaron Crane, Abigail, Alberto Simões, Andy Dougherty, Brian Fraser, Chad
Granum, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker,
Daniel Dragan, David Mitchell, Father Chrysostomos, H.Merijn Brand, James E
Keenan, Jan Dubois, Jarkko Hietaniemi, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Lukas
Mai, Peter Martini, Rafael Garcia-Suarez, syber, Tony Cook, Vladimir Marek,
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.

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 21.4 on Sep 20, 2014.
The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 22.0, should
appear in May 2015.
