Perl 5.24.1-RC3 is now available!
Message ID:
  A bird within the bower of her delight,
    Quiet upon the nest with her sweet brood
    Throughout the dark concealment of the night,

  Anxious to look on them and gather food -
    No weary task for her, for as at play
    Blithely she toils to seek her fledglings' good -

  Before the time, upon the topmost spray
    Eager awaits the sun and on the East
    Fixes her wakeful eye till break of day.

    -- Dante Alighieri, trans. Dorothy L. Sayers and Barbara Reynolds,
       "The Divine Comedy", Cantica III: Paradise, Canto XXIII

We are delighted to announce the third 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-RC3 from your favourite

SHA1 digests for this release are:

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-RC3.
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 will ship no sooner than Friday 19th August 2016.
