News and Updates

   I'm [1]looking for a release manager for the last releases of 5.27.x in
   March of 2018.

     * [6]Perl #132178: Perl 5.24.0: AIX compile error.

  Resolved Issues

     * [7]Perl #120174: Debugger command regression: Now requires more
       spaces.

Suggested Patches

   Patches by Nicholas R. (Atoomic):

     * [10]Perl #132159 (Use preprocessor check for some DEBUG_X_TEST calls
       in sv.c and toke.c).
     * [11]Perl #132160 (Use SvLEN_set/SvCUR_set in a few extra locations).
     * [12]Perl #132171: Minor speedup improvement for pp_require.

   their hash keys as of 5.8.3.

Discussions

   Yves Orton [14]raised an interesting problem with \G appearing not at the
   beginning of a string.
