Perl 5.24.1-RC5 is now available!
Message ID:
  Thus passed the night so foul, till Morning fair
  Came forth with pilgrim steps, in amice grey;
  Who with her radiant finger stilled the roar
  Of thunder, chased the clouds, and laid the winds,
  And grisly spectres, which the fiend had raised
  To tempt the Son of God with terrors dire.
  And now the sun with more effectual beams
  Had cheered the face of earth, and dried the wet
  From drooping plant, or dropping tree; the birds,
  Who all things now behold more fresh and green,
  After a night of storm so ruinous,
  Cleared up their choicest notes in bush and spray,
  To gratulate the sweet return of morn.

    -- John Milton, ed. Gordon Campbell, "Paradise Regained", Book IV

We are sorry for the long delay in announcing the fifth release
candidate of version 24.1, the first maintenance release of version 24
of Perl 5.

This release is identical to Perl 5.24.1-RC4 except that changes made to have been reverted so that it is now identical to the version
that shipped in Perl 5.24.0.  Please see

for further details.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.24.1-RC5 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  54a62ceeb7f1d2d2029ce9f9646be1f8e3a069bd  perl-5.24.1-RC5.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-RC5.
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 Saturday 14th January 2017.
