Perl 5.24.2-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
  The animal I really dig
  Above all others is the pig.
  Pigs are noble. Pigs are clever,
  Pig are courteous. However,
  Now and then, to break this rule,
  One meets a pig who is a fool.
  What, for example, would you say
  If strolling through the woods one day,
  Right there in front of you you saw
  A pig who'd built his house of STRAW?
  The Wolf who saw it licked his lips,
  And said, 'That pig has had his chips.'

    -- Roald Dahl, "The Three Little Pigs"

We are delighted to announce the first release candidate of version
24.2, the second maintenance release of version 24 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.24.2-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  b5a19f575485a39a5ae40ad8920ee9ad635c6495  perl-5.24.2-RC1.tar.gz
  0a63d065d9e012450c59336555fb12ea25658c2d  perl-5.24.2-RC1.tar.bz2
  aa2116100c787dfe78540e1e8e3917428c49893c  perl-5.24.2-RC1.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-5.24.2-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.24.2 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.24.2 than
for v5.24.3!

The final v5.24.2 is expected to ship within the next fortnight.
