Perl 5.24.4-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
The domestic cat is a contradiction. No animal has developed such an
intimate relationship with mankind, while at the same time demanding and
getting such independence of movement and action. The dog may be man's
best friend, but it is rarely allowed out on its own to wander from
garden to garden or street to street. The obedient dog has to be taken
for a walk. The headstrong cat walks alone.

  -- Desmond Morris, "Catwatching: The Essential Guide to Cat Behaviour"

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

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.24.4-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

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-5.24.4-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.24.4 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.24.4 than
for v5.24.5!

The final v5.24.4 is expected to ship on April 14th.
