Perl 5.34.0-RC2 is now available!
Message ID:
  No one is born hating another person because of the color of his
skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate,
and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love
comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

    -- Nelson Mandela, The Long Walk to Freedom

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.

Barring any additional RCs, we expect 5.34.0 to be out around May 20th.
