Perl 5.25.10 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl 5.25.9
and contains approximately 12,000 lines of changes across 200 files from 25

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 6,700 lines of changes to 130 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

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 5.25.10:

Aaron Crane, Abigail, Andreas König, Andy Lester, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams,
Christian Millour, Colin Newell, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, David Mitchell,
Hugo van der Sanden, James E Keenan, Jarkko Hietaniemi, Jerry D. Hedden, John
Lightsey, Karl Williamson, Neil Bowers, Pali, Renee Baecker, Sawyer X, Sergey
Aleynikov, Steffen Müller, Steve Hay, Tony Cook, Yves Orton, Zefram.

The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically generated
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.

For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors, please see
the AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release version 25.11 on March 20th, 2017.
The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 26.0, should
appear in May 2017.
