Perl 5.28.3 is now available!
Message ID:
The north end of the London Borough of Camden is dominated by two hills,
Hampstead on the west, Highgate on the east, with the Heath, one of the
largest parks in London, slung between them like a green saddle.  From
these heights the land slopes down towards the River Thames and the
floodplains that lurk below the built-up centre of London.

We are pleased to announce version 28.3, the third maintenance release
of version 28 of Perl 5.

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 5.28.3 represents approximately 13 months of development since Perl
5.28.2 and contains approximately 3,100 lines of changes across 48 files
from 16 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 1,700 lines of changes to 9 .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 5.28.3:

Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Dan Book, Hugo van der Sanden, James E Keenan,
John Lightsey, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Matthew Horsfall, Max
Maischein, Nicolas R., Renee Baecker, Sawyer X, Steve Hay, Tom Hukins,
Tony Cook, Zak B.  Elep.

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.

The next major stable release of Perl 5, version 32.0, should appear in
June 2020, with version 34.0 released around the same time.
