Perl 5.27.1 is now available
Message ID:
   There are worlds out there where the sky is burning,
   where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream,
   people made of smoke and cities made of song.
   Somewhere there's danger,
   somewhere there's injustice
   and somewhere else the tea is getting cold.
   Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

     -- Rona Munro, "Doctor Who: Survival"

Perl 5.27.1 represents approximately 3 weeks of development since Perl
5.27.0 and contains approximately 62,000 lines of changes across 510
files from 30 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 55,000 lines of changes to 380 .pm, .t, .c and .h

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 5.27.1:

Aaron Crane, Abigail, Andy Dougherty, Andy Lester, Aristotle Pagaltzis,
Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan
Collins, David Mitchell, Eric Herman, Eugen Konkov, Father Chrysostomos,
Graham Knop, H.Merijn Brand, Jacques Germishuys, James E Keenan, Jerry
D. Hedden, John Peacock, Karl Williamson, Ken Cotterill, Lukas Mai,
Matthew Horsfall, Sawyer X, Steve Hay, Sullivan Beck, Thomas Sibley,
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 tracker.

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 5.27.2 around the 20th of July 2017. The
next major stable release of Perl 5, version 28.0, should appear in
April or May of 2018.
