  I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more
  Well, I try my best
  To be just like I am
  But everybody wants you
  To be just like them
  They sing while you slave and I just get bored
  I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more

the "pod" directory inside the release and on the web.

Perl 5.23.0 represents approximately 3 weeks of development since Perl 5.22.0
and contains approximately 86,000 lines of changes across 480 files from 29

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 55,000 lines of changes to 270 .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 5.23.0:

Chase Whitener, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari
Mannsåker, Daniel Dragan, David Golden, David Mitchell, Hugo van der Sanden,
Jan Dubois, Jarkko Hietaniemi, Jerry D. Hedden, Jim Cromie, Karen Etheridge,
Karl Williamson, kmx, Lukas Mai, Martijn Lievaart, Matthew Horsfall, Niko Tyni,
Peter John Acklam, Rafael Garcia-Suarez, Reini Urban, Ricardo Signes, Shlomi
Fish, Steve Hay, Thomas Sibley, Tony Cook, Unicode Consortium, Zefram.

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 AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release perl 5.23.1 on July 20th, 2015.  The next major stable
release of Perl 5, v5.24.0, should appear in May 2016.
