Perl 5.31.2 is now available!
Message ID:
  Said the Duck to the Kangaroo,
    'Good gracious! how you hop!
  Over the fields and the water too,
    As if you never would stop!
  My life is a bore in this nasty pond,
  And I long to go out in the world beyond!
    I wish I could hop like you!'
    Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

We are euphoric to announce version 31.2, the third development release
of version 31 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.31.2 from your favourite CPAN
mirror or find it at:

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.

Perl 5.31.2 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.31.1 and contains approximately 7,600 lines of changes across 190
files from 16 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 3,100 lines of changes to 99 .pm, .t, .c and .h

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 5.31.2:

Alexandr Savca, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari
Mannsåker, David Mitchell, H.Merijn Brand, James E Keenan, Karen
Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Nicolas R., Pali, Paul Evans, Richard Leach,
Steve Hay, Svyatoslav, Tony Cook.

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 31.3 on 20 August 2019.  The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 32.0, should appear in May 2020.
