                               December 19th-25th

   Perl 5.25.8 is now [1]available!

News and updates

   There are some pending changes in XS for core UTF-8 handling,
[2]announced
   by Karl Williamson. In short, there are new, safer UTF-8 macros and the
   existing macros are deprecated.

   [4]Storable.
