perl-5.23.2 is now available!
Message ID:
  Would you believe in a night like this
  A night like this, when visions come true
  Would you believe in a tale like this
  A lay of bliss, praise in the old lore
  Come to the blazing fire and

  See me in the shadows
  See me in the shadows
  Songs I will sing
  Of runes and rings
  Just hand me my harp
  This night turns into myth
  Nothing seems real
  You soon will feel
  The world we live in is another skald's
  Dream in the shadows
  Dream in the shadows

  Do you believe there is sense in it
  Is it truth or myth?
  They´re one in my rhymes
  Nobody knows the meaning behind
  The weaver's line
  Well nobody else but the Norns can
  See through the blazing fires of time and
  All things will proceed as the
  Child of the hallowed
  Will speak to you now

  See me in the shadows
  See me in the shadows
  Songs I will sing of tribes and kings
  The carrion bird and the hall of the slain
  Nothing seems real
  You soon will feel
  The world we live in is another skald´s
  Dream in the shadows
  Dream in the shadows

  Do not fear for my reason
  There's nothing to hide
  How bitter your treason
  How bitter the lie
  Remember the runes and remember the light
  All I ever want is to be at your side
  We'll gladden the raven now I will
  Run through the blazing fires
  That's my choice
  Cause things shall proceed as foreseen

We are happy to announce perl v5.23.2,

  30d1b3d289fee992019c43906835153170ff1dd2 perl-5.23.2.tar.gz

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 at

Perl 5.23.2 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl 5.23.1
and contains approximately 22,000 lines of changes across 240 files from 23

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 17,000 lines of changes to 140 .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 5.23.2:

Aaron Priven, Aristotle Pagaltzis, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry,
Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Daniel Dragan, David Mitchell, Ed J, Father
Chrysostomos, H.Merijn Brand, Ivan Pozdeev, James E Keenan, Jarkko Hietaniemi,
Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Ludovic E. R. Tolhurst-Cleaver, Lukas Mai,
Matthew Horsfall, Reini Urban, Ricardo Signes, Sisyphus, Steve Hay, Tony Cook.

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 perl v5.23.3 on September 20th, 2015. The next
major stable release of Perl 5, v5.24.0, should appear in May 2016.
