Perl 5.33.9 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.33.8 and contains approximately 3,900 lines of changes across 190
files from 23 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there
were approximately 780 lines of changes to 82 .pm, .t, .c and .h

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 5.33.9:

Dan Book, Dominic Hamon, E. Choroba, Ed J, Felipe Gasper, H.Merijn
Brand, Hugo van der Sanden, James E Keenan, John Lightsey, Karen
Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Marc Reisner, Max Maischein, Nicolas R.,
Paul Evans, Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, Scott Baker, TAKAI Kousuke,
Todd Rinaldo, Tomasz Konojacki, Tony Cook, Михаил Козачков.

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 5.34.0 on May 20, 2021.

Stay safe,
Todd Rinaldo
