Perl 5.26.1-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
  At length did cross an Albatross,
  Thorough the fog it came;
  As if it had been a Christian soul,
  We hailed it in God's name.

  It ate the food it ne'er had eat,
  And round and round it flew.
  The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
  The helmsman steered us through!

  And a good south wind sprung up behind;
  The Albatross did follow,
  And every day, for food or play,
  Came to the mariner's hollo!

  In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
  It perched for vespers nine;
  Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white,
  Glimmered the white Moon-shine.'

  'God save thee, ancient Mariner!
  From the fiends, that plague thee thus!—-
  Why look'st thou so?'—-With my cross-bow
  I shot the ALBATROSS.

    -- Samuel Taylor Coleridge, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"

We are delighted to announce the first release candidate of version
26.1, the first maintenance release of version 26 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.26.1-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  cf2c1cc574a3dd201be1b0139d37218901b0b888  perl-5.26.1-RC1.tar.gz
  eb7b948f0e7235f14bd13e632638bfdade8c85d0  perl-5.26.1-RC1.tar.bz2
  71bd641ab0458942b5ac691057b2f04b714812cf  perl-5.26.1-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-5.26.1-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.26.1 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.26.1 than
for v5.26.2!

The final v5.26.1 is expected to ship within the next fortnight.
