Perl 5.27.10 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.27.9 and contains approximately 80,000 lines of changes across 380 files
from 18 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 75,000 lines of changes to 270 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

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 5.27.10:

Aaron Crane, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Daniel Dragan, David
Mitchell, Father Chrysostomos, H.Merijn Brand, James E Keenan, Karl
Williamson, Pali, Renee Baecker, Sawyer X, Shoichi Kaji, Steve Hay, Todd
Rinaldo, 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 F<AUTHORS> file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release version 5.27.11 on April 20, 2018
The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 28.0, should
appear in May 2018.

Good luck. We're all counting on you,
