Perl 5.22.1-RC2 is now available!
Message ID:
  The hoary frost has a white sheen
  Strewn all over my hair,
  So I thought I was an old man
  And thought life dealt me fair.

  Yet soon was thawed my old white mane,
  And I have my black hair again.
  How I abhor my young fair years,
  How long to wait for death and biers?

  From setting sun to morning's hue
  Many a head turns white.
  Who'll credit it? My hair did not
  In all this lifelong plight!

    -- Wilhelm Müller, trans. Anon., "The Old Head"
       (No. 14 in Schubert's song-cycle, "Winterreise")

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.22.1-RC2.
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 29th, a fortnight from
