Perl 5.20.1-RC2 is now available!
Message ID:
  Oh God, I feel that this foot of mine
  is reluctant to come before her.

  My trembling lip
  can utter no word.

  The hero displays his manliness
  in the most terrible moments.

  Now that we have heard the news,
  you have the lesser duty:
  Take heart, and plunge your swords
  into both our hearts.

  My idol, blame fate
  that I must abandon you.

  DORABELLA: Ah no, you shall not leave...
  FIORDILIGI: No, cruel one, you shall not go...
  DORABELLA: First I want to tear out my heart.
  FIORDILIGI: First I want to die at your feet.
  FERRANDO (softly to Don Alfonso): What do you say to that?
  GUGLIELMO (softly to Don Alfonso): You realise?
  DON ALFONSO (softly): Steady, friend, finem lauda.

  Thus destiny defrauds
  the hopes of mortals.
  Ah, among so many misfortunes,
  who can ever love life?

    -- Lorenzo da Ponte, /Così fan tutte/, trans. William Weaver

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.

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.20.1-RC2.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.20.1 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.20.1 than
for v5.20.2!

The final v5.20.1 will ship no sooner than Sep 14th, a week from today.
