Perl 5.33.2 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl 
5.33.1 and contains approximately 18,000 lines of changes across 380 
files from 19 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there 
were approximately 11,000 lines of changes to 260 .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 5.33.2:

Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Christian Walde (Mithaldu), Craig A. Berry, 
Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, David Mitchell, H.Merijn Brand, Hugo van der 
Sanden, James E Keenan, John Lightsey, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, 
Nicholas Clark, Nicolas R., Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, Sawyer X, 
Todd Rinaldo, Tom Hukins, Tony Cook.

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.
