perl-5.23.3 is now available!
Message ID:
Little of of all we value here
Wakes on the morn of its hundredth year
Without both feeling and looking queer.
In fact, there’s nothing that keeps its youth,
So far as I know, but a tree and truth.
(This is a moral that runs at large;
Take it. — You’re welcome. — No extra charge.)

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 5.23.3 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
and contains approximately 150,000 lines of changes across 550 files from 30

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 120,000 lines of changes to 410 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

Perl continues to flourish into its third decade thanks to a vibrant
of users and developers. The following people are known to have contributed
improvements that became Perl 5.23.3:

Aaron Crane, Alexander D'Archangel, Andy Broad, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams,
A. Berry, Dan Collins, Daniel Dragan, David Mitchell, Father Chrysostomos,
James E Keenan, Jan Dubois, Jarkko Hietaniemi, Jerry D. Hedden, John SJ
Anderson, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Lukas Mai, Matthew Horsfall,
Nicolas R., Peter John Acklam, Peter Martini, Ricardo Signes, Shlomi Fish,
Steffen Müller, Steve Hay, Sullivan Beck, Thomas Sibley, Todd Rinaldo, Tony
Cook, Zachary Storer.

The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically
from version control history. In particular, it does not include the names
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
the F<AUTHORS> file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release version v5.23.4 on October 20th, 2015.  The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 24.0, should
appear in May 2016.
