Perl 5.32.0 is now available!
Message ID:
  Come gather 'round, people
  Wherever you roam
  And admit that the waters
  Around you have grown
  And accept it that soon
  You'll be drenched to the bone
  If your time to you is worth savin'
  And you better start swimmin'
  Or you'll sink like a stone
  For the times they are a-changin'

    -- Bob Dylan, "The Times They Are A Changing"

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.

In hugs and bugs,
Sawyer X.
