  He’d irrationally hoped he could somehow put off indefinitely the

injustice were the struts and pillars of the social order, as
unavoidable and inevitable as the weather.

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 RC (RC2) should come in the coming week from today.

We expect 5.34.0 to be out at - or around - May 20th.

In hugs and bugs,
Sawyer X.
