Perl 5.22.1-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
  In the deepest rocky crevice
  A will-o'-the wisp lured me;
  How I could find my way from here,
  For me it's easy memory!

  For I am used to straying ways,
  Every path to th'end a way,
  All our joys and all our suffering,--
  To a will-o'-the wisp it 's all play!

  Through the dried-up bed of torrents
  I quite calmly downward stroll;
  Every stream its sea will enter,
  Every suffering finds its goal!

    -- Wilhelm Müller, trans. Anon., "Will-o'-the Wisp"
       (No. 9 in Schubert's song-cycle, "Winterreise")

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.22.1-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.22.1 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.22.1 than
for v5.22.2!

The final v5.22.1 will ship no sooner than Nov 14th, a fortnight from
