Perl 5.22.3-RC2 is now available!
Message ID:
  For better waters heading with the wind
    My ship of genius now shakes out her sail
    And leaves that ocean of despair behind;

  For to the second realm I tune my tale,
    Where human spirits purge themselves, and train
    To leap up into joy celestial.

  Now from the grave wake poetry again,
    O sacred Muses I have served so long!
    Now let Calliope uplift her strain

  And lift my voice up on the mighty song
    That smote the miserable Magpies nine
    Out of all hope of pardon for their wrong!

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

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-5.22.3-RC2.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.22.3 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.22.3 than
for v5.22.4!

The final v5.22.3 is expected to ship within the next week.
