Perl 5.31.9 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.31.8 and contains approximately 82,000 lines of changes across 390 files
from 25 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 61,000 lines of changes to 160 .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 5.31.9:

Alberto Simões, Andrew Fresh, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry,
Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan Book, David Mitchell, E. Choroba, H.Merijn
Brand, Hugo van der Sanden, James E Keenan, Karen Etheridge, Karl
Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Marc Green, Matthew Horsfall, Paul Johnson,
Petr Písař, Richard Leach, Steve Hay, Todd Rinaldo, Tomasz Konojacki, Tony
Cook, Unicode Consortium, Yves Orton.

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 5.31.10 on March, 20th 2020.  The next
major stable
release of Perl 5, version 32.0, should appear in May 2020.
