News

   Leon Timmermans [1]notes we need to revert a fatality of unescaped left
   braces in regex, specifically [2]Perl #130497 since it breaks
Autoconf and
   there's no release of it out yet.

Issues

  New issues

     * [3]Perl #131098: Error message for require "./base.pm" is wrong and
       confusing.
     * [4]Perl #131101: segfault in S_mg_findext_flags().
     * [5]Perl #131110: CORE/util.h breaks if multiply included (patch).
     * [6]Perl #131115: Perl enters infinite loop with -d:Trace and
       binmode(STDERR, encoding(UTF-8)).
     * [7]Perl #131124: commit 2e6f1ae9c: breaks blead.
     * [8]Perl #131126: 5.24.1 make test failures on linux-x86_64 (Linux:
       4.10 glibc: 2.25 gcc: 5,4.0).

  Resolved issues

     * [9]Perl #121292: perlunicode claims about a UTF-8 BOM in perl source
       are incorrect.
     * [10]Perl #130641: Bleadperl v5.25.8-36-g6cdc5cd8f3 breaks
       HURRICUP/DTL-Fast-1.622.tar.gz.

  Rejected issues

     * [11]Perl #130497: Revert "Unescaped left brace in regex" fatality.
     * [12]Perl #131100: The ../ relative path misbehaving with regard to
       default_inc_excludes_dot.

Discussion

   Dave Mitchell [13]asks about weird behavior with do/require with refs in
   @INC.
