Perl 5.27.11 is now available!
Message ID:
  And then, too, I had learned early to assume something dark and
  lethal hidden at the heart of anything I loved. When I couldn't find
  it, I responded, bewildered and wary, in the only way I knew how: by
  planting it there myself.

the "pod" directory inside the release and on the web at

Perl 5.27.11 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.27.10 and contains approximately 440,000 lines of changes across 200 files
from 21 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 440,000 lines of changes to 88 .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 5.27.11:

Aaron Crane, Alexandr Savca, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Dagfinn Ilmari
Mannsåker, Daniel Dragan, David Mitchell, H.Merijn Brand, James E Keenan,
John Peacock, Karl Williamson, Marc-Philip Werner, Nicholas Clark, Pali,
Ricardo Signes, Sawyer X, Sergey Aleynikov, 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.

The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 28.0, should appear in
May 2018.
