Perl 5.25.9 has been released.
Message ID:

  Pooh always liked a little something at eleven o'clock in the
  morning, and he was very glad to see Rabbit getting out the plates
  and mugs; and when Rabbit said, "Honey or condensed milk with
  your bread?" he was so excited that he said, "Both," and then,
  so as not to seem greedy, he added, "But don't bother about the
  bread, please."

    -- A. A. Milne, "Winnie-the-Pooh", 1926

Perl continues to flourish into its third decade thanks to a vibrant community
of users and developers. The following people are known to have contributed the
improvements that became Perl 5.25.9:

Aaron Crane, Abigail, Andreas König, Andy Lester, Aristotle Pagaltzis

from version control history. In particular, it does not include the names of
the (very much appreciated) contributors who reported issues to the Perl bug

Many of the changes included in this version originated in the CPAN modules
included in Perl's core. We're grateful to the entire CPAN community for
helping Perl to flourish.

We expect to release version 5.25.10 on February 20, 2017. The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 26.0, should appear in May 2017.
