Perl 5.31.10 is now available!
Message ID:
   Remember me when I am gone away,
       Gone far away into the silent land;
       When you can no more hold me by the hand,
   Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
   Remember me when no more day by day
       You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
       Only remember me; you understand
   It will be late to counsel then or pray.
   Yet if you should forget me for a while
       And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
       For if the darkness and corruption leave
       A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
   Better by far you should forget and smile
       Than that you should remember and be sad.

     -- Christina Rossetti, "Remember"

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 5.31.10:

Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Craig A. Berry, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan
Book, Daniel Dragan, Dave Rolsky, David Cantrell, David Mitchell, Hauke D,
H.Merijn Brand, Hugo van der Sanden, James E Keenan, John Lightsey, 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 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 5.32.0 this May, if all goes well.

Please, stay safe.
