Perl 5.31.5 is now available!
Message ID:
  'O Mr Daddy Long-legs,'
    Said Mr Floppy Fly,
  'It's true I never go to court,
    And I will tell you why.
  If I had six long legs like yours,
    At once I'd go to court!
  But oh! I can't, because my legs
    Are so extremely short.
  And I'm afraid the King and Queen
  (One in red, and one in green)
  Would say aloud, "You are not fit,
  You Fly, to come to court a bit!"'

  -- Edward Lear, ed. Vivien Noakes, "The Complete Nonsense and Other
     Verse": The Daddy Long-legs and the Fly

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 5.31.5 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.31.4 and contains approximately 27,000 lines of changes across 610
files from 15 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 9,500 lines of changes to 150 .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 5.31.5:

Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, David Mitchell, H.Merijn Brand, James E
Keenan, Karl Williamson, Matt Turner, Max Maischein, Nicolas R., Pali,
Paul Evans, Paul Marquess, Peter Eisentraut, Steve Hay, Tomasz
Konojacki, 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 31.6 on 20 November 2019.  The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 32.0, should appear in May 2020.
