We are thrilled to announce perl v5.30.0, the first stable release of
version 30 of Perl 5.

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

Perl 5.30.0 represents approximately 11 months of development since Perl
5.28.0 and contains approximately 620,000 lines of changes across 1,300
files from 58 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 510,000 lines of changes to 750 .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 5.30.0:

Aaron Crane, Abigail, Alberto Simões, Alexandr Savca, Andreas König, Andy
Dougherty, Aristotle Pagaltzis, Brian Greenfield, Chad Granum, Chris
'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan Book, Dan
Dedrick, Daniel Dragan, Dan Kogai, David Cantrell, David Mitchell, Dominic
Hargreaves, E. Choroba, Ed J, Eugen Konkov, François Perrad, Graham Knop,
Hauke D, H.Merijn Brand, Hugo van der Sanden, Jakub Wilk, James Clarke,
James E Keenan, Jerry D. Hedden, Jim Cromie, John SJ Anderson, Karen

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 most of the (very much appreciated) contributors who reported
issues to the Perl bug tracker. Noteworthy in this release were the large
number of bug fixes made possible by Sergey Aleynikov's high quality perlbug
reports for issues he discovered by fuzzing with AFL.

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 perl v5.31.0 tomorrow, followed by v5.31.1 on June
20th. The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 32.0, should
appear in May 2020.

In hugs and bugs,
Sawyer X.
