A large number of bug fixes in this release were made possible by
the high quality of Sergey Aleynikov's perlbug reports for issues he
discovered through fuzzing with AFL.

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 5.30.0 later this May, if all goes well.
