Perl 5.31.11 represents approximately 6 weeks of development since Perl
5.31.10 and contains approximately 3,200 lines of changes across 170 files

approximately 1,200 lines of changes to 110 .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 5.31.11:

Atsushi Sugawara, Chad Granum, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan Book, David
Mitchell, Dominic Hargreaves, Hugo van der Sanden, James E Keenan, Jason
McIntosh, Karl Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Ricardo Signes, Samuel Smith,
Sawyer X, Sisyphus, Tomasz Konojacki, Tony Cook, Zefram.

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 will attempt to release the next major stable release of Perl 5, 
version 32.0,

on May 20th. However, we might require another development release 

If so, 5.31.12 will appear on May 20th and 5.32.0 will appear on June.

In hugs and bugs,
Sawyer X. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
