Perl 5.24.1-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
  New punishments behoves me sing in this
    Twentieth canto of my first canticle,
    Which tells of spirits sunk in the Abyss.

  I now stood ready to observe the full
    Extent of the new chasm thus laid bare,
    Drenched as it was in tears most miserable.

  Through the round vale I saw folk drawing near,
    Weeping and silent, and at such slow pace
    As Litany processions keep, up here.

  And presently, when I had dropped my gaze
    Lower than the head, I saw them strangely wried
    'Twixt collar-bone and chin, so that the face

  Of each was turned towards his own backside,
    And backwards must they needs creep with their feet,
    All power of looking forward being denied.

    -- Dante Alighieri, trans. Dorothy L. Sayers, "The Divine Comedy",
       Cantica I: Hell, Canto XX

We are delighted to announce the first release candidate of version
24.1, the first maintenance release of version 24 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.24.1-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  34256b00e1125817537b644f231341d171561835  perl-5.24.1-RC1.tar.gz
  930347968c20d61cb973d98a22a5f9c1545bb1b9  perl-5.24.1-RC1.tar.bz2
  35e12b4e31423889c1bdec3d1167c6768150041c  perl-5.24.1-RC1.tar.xz

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.

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.24.1-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.24.1 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.24.1 than
for v5.24.2!

The final v5.24.1 is expected to ship within the next fortnight.
