Perl 5.29.0 represents approximately 1 week of development since Perl
5.28.0 and contains approximately 320,000 lines of changes across 79
files from 4 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 310,000 lines of changes to 30 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

Perl continues to flourish into its fourth decade thanks to a vibrant
community of users and developers. The following people are known to
have contributed the improvements that became Perl 5.29.0:

Abigail, James E Keenan, Karl Williamson, Sawyer X.

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 AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release version 29.1 on July 20th. The next major stable
release of Perl 5, version 28.0, should appear in May 2018.

Sawyer X.
