Perl 5.30.2-RC1 is now available!
Message ID:
  For me this woman lost
  all she possessed.
  I was blind, a wretched coward,
  I accepted it all.
  But it's time now for me to clear
  myself from debt.
  I call you all to witness here
  that I've paid her back!

  (Contemptuously, he throws his winnings at Violetta's feet.
  She swoons in Flora's arms. Alfredo's father arrives suddenly.)

  What you have done
  is shameful!
  To strike down
  a tender heart that way!
  You have insulted
  a woman!
  Get out of here!
  We've no use for the likes of you!

  (dignified in his anger)
  A man who offends a woman, even in anger,
  deserves nothing but scorn.
  Where is my son? I no longer see him
  in you, Alfredo.

  (What have I done? Yes, I despise myself!
  Jealous madness, love deceived,
  ravaged my soul, destroyed my reason.
  How can I ever gain her pardon?
  I would have left her, but I couldn't;
  I came here to vent my anger,
  But now I've done that, wretch that I am,
  I feel nothing but deep remorse!)

    -- Francesco Maria Piave, trans. Deutsche Grammophon GmbH,
       "La traviata", Act II, Scene 2

We are delighted to announce the first release candidate of version
30.2, the second maintenance release of version 30 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.30.2-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  649c8249737ee38a45e8b8a38813dbd3155cd5b3  perl-5.30.2-RC1.tar.gz
  df9d49ecf84ac2deed118d9be3d93dc119993314  perl-5.30.2-RC1.tar.xz

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.

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.30.2-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.30.2 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.30.2 than
for v5.30.3!

The final v5.30.2 is expected to ship on March 14th.
