Announcing release of Perl 5.33.1
Message ID:
  If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil
  deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and
  destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart
  of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own

    -- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956 (1973)

We are relieved to announce version 33.1, the second development release of

Perl 5.33.1 represents approximately 5 weeks of development since Perl
5.33.0 and contains approximately 37,000 lines of changes across 740 files
from 34 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 11,000 lines of changes to 290 .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 5.33.1:

Adam Hartley, Christian Walde (Mithaldu), Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan
Book, David Mitchell, E. Choroba, Graham Knop, Graham Ollis, Hauke D, Ivan
Baidakou, James E Keenan, John Lightsey, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson,
Leon Timmermans, Nicolas R., Paul Evans, Petr Písař, raiph, Renee Baecker,
Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, Romano, Ryan Voots, Samuel Thibault, Sawyer
X, Scott Baker, Sizhe Zhao, Thibault Duponchelle, Todd Rinaldo, Tomasz
Konojacki, Tom Stellard, Tony Cook, vividsnow.

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 version 5.33.2 on 20 September, 2020. The next major
stable release of Perl 5, version 34.0, should appear in May 2021.

Use it together, use it in peace,
Karen Etheridge
