Perl 5.26.2-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
Cats have a way of endearing themselves to their owners, not just by
their 'kittenoid' behaviour, which stimulates strong parental feelings,
but also by their sheer gracefulness. There is an elegance and a
composure about them that captivates the human eye. To the sensitive
human being it becomes a privilege to share a room with a cat, exchange
its glance, feel its greeting rub, or watch it gently luxuriate itself
into a snoozing ball on a soft cushion.

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

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

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.26.2-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  9f55011314a237a06126fad987f0af44b11bf0a3  perl-5.26.2-RC1.tar.gz
  1819b9c20b5e0872094d3a09d53204170ade3310  perl-5.26.2-RC1.tar.bz2
  ae2a042131b7f66b0688e9b04438bc2ae838e516  perl-5.26.2-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-5.26.2-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.26.2 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.26.2 than
for v5.26.3!

The final v5.26.2 is expected to ship on April 14th.
