Perl 5.22.3-RC5 is now available!
Message ID:
  Thus wore out night; and now the herald lark
  Left his ground-nest, high towering to descry
  The Morn's approach, and greet her with his song;
  As lightly from his grassy couch up rose
  Our Saviour, and found all was but a dream;
  Fasting he went to sleep, and fasting waked.
  Up to a hill anon his steps he reared,
  From whose high top to ken the prospect round,
  If cottage were in view, sheep-cote, or herd;
  But cottage, herd, or sheep-cote, none he saw --
  Only in a bottom saw a pleasant grove,
  With chant of tuneful birds resounding loud;
  Thither he bent his way, determined there
  To rest at noon, and entered soon the shade,
  High-roofed and walks beneath, and alleys brown,
  That opened in the midst a woody scene;
  Nature's own work it seemed (Nature taught Art),
  And, to a superstitious eye, the haunt
  Of wood-gods and wood-nymphs.

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

We are sorry for the long delay in announcing the fifth release
candidate of version 22.3, the third maintenance release of version 22
of Perl 5.

This release is identical to Perl 5.22.3-RC4 except that changes made to have been reverted so that it is now identical to the version
that shipped in Perl 5.22.2.  Please see

for further details.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.22.3-RC5 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  fbeb80ae922afe31dc35d45f8719f921dd9876a0  perl-5.22.3-RC5.tar.gz
  1b2a7e6a60036a57c5539da386b4fdb92041d26c  perl-5.22.3-RC5.tar.bz2
  b71b9c8666856b0d8d3eb27911011a53fdf41900  perl-5.22.3-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-5.22.3-RC5.
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 will ship no sooner than Saturday 14th January 2017.
