Perl 5.29.9 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.29.8 and contains approximately 47,000 lines of changes across 210 files
from 11 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 38,000 lines of changes to 71 .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 5.29.9:

Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan
Kogai, David Mitchell, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Nicolas R., Pali,
Tony Cook, Unicode Consortium.

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 5.29.10 on 2019-04-20.
The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 30.0, should appear in
May 2019.
