Perl 5.22.1 is now available!
Message ID:
  If the snow flies in my face,
  Let me shake it off me!
  If my heart within me speaks,
  I'll sing bright and gaily!

  Will not listen what it says,
  Have no ears for moaning.
  Do not feel what it complains,--
  Only fools like groaning!

  Jolly brave into the world,
  'Gainst all wind and weather,--
  If there is no God on earth,
  Let 's be gods down nether!

    -- Wilhelm Müller, trans. Anon., "Courage"
       (No. 22 in Schubert's song-cycle, "Winterreise")

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.

Perl 5.22.1 represents approximately 6 months of development since Perl
5.22.0 and contains approximately 19,000 lines of changes across 130
files from 27 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 1,700 lines of changes to 44 .pm, .t, .c and .h

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 5.22.1:

Aaron Crane, Abigail, Andy Broad, Aristotle Pagaltzis, Chase Whitener,
Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Daniel Dragan, David Mitchell,
Father Chrysostomos, Herbert Breunung, Hugo van der Sanden, James E
Keenan, Jan Dubois, Jarkko Hietaniemi, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson,
Lukas Mai, Matthew Horsfall, Peter Martini, Rafael Garcia-Suarez,
Ricardo Signes, Shlomi Fish, Sisyphus, Steve Hay, Tony Cook, Victor

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.

The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 24.0, should appear in
May 2016, with version 25.0 released around the same time.
