  Lying, thinking
  Last night
  How to find my soul a home
  Where water is not thirsty
  And bread loaf is not stone
  I came up with one thing
  And I don't believe I'm wrong
  That nobody,
  But nobody
  Can make it out here alone.
 
  Alone, all alone
  Nobody, but nobody
  Can make it out here alone.
 
  There are some millionaires
  With money they can't use
  Their wives run round like banshees
  Their children sing the blues
  They've got expensive doctors
  To cure their hearts of stone.
  But nobody
  No, nobody
  Can make it out here alone.
 
  Alone, all alone
  Nobody, but nobody
  Can make it out here alone.
 
  Now if you listen closely
  I'll tell you what I know
  Storm clouds are gathering
  The wind is gonna blow
  The race of man is suffering
  And I can hear the moan,
  'Cause nobody,
  But nobody
  Can make it out here alone.
 
  Alone, all alone
  Nobody, but nobody
  Can make it out here alone.

We are pleased to announce version 29.10, the 11th development release
of version 29 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.29.10 from your favorite CPAN
mirror or find it at:

https://metacpan.org/release/XSAWYERX/perl-5.29.10/

SHA1 digests for this release are:

 448b56a8ffd392ec9c4341c2a6571353da4a9cf7  perl-5.29.10.tar.gz
 7180ba4eb6295bf63041dc0e81a7b747e9a40f54  perl-5.29.10.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 at

https://metacpan.org/pod/release/XSAWYERX/perl-5.29.10/pod/perldelta.pod

Perl 5.29.10 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.29.9 and contains approximately 29,000 lines of changes across 230
files from 19 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 21,000 lines of changes to 98 .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 5.29.10:

Alberto Simões, Brian Greenfield, Dan Book, David Mitchell, Ed J, Hugo
van der Sanden, James E Keenan, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Niko
Tyni, Richard Leach, Sawyer X, Sisyphus, Steve Hay, Tomasz Konojacki,
Tom Wyant, Tony Cook, Unicode Consortium, Zak B. Elep.

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.

The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 30.0, should appear in
May 2019.

Yours,
Sawyer.
