Perl 5.35.2 represents approximately 5 weeks of development since Perl
5.35.1 and contains approximately 27,000 lines of changes across 420 files
from 25 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 14,000 lines of changes to 200 .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 5.35.2:

Atsushi Sugawara, Ben Cornett, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Christian Walde
(Mithaldu), Craig A. Berry, David Golden, David Marshall, Felipe Gasper,
Jakub Wilk, James E Keenan, Karl Williamson, Leam Hall, Leon Timmermans, Max
Maischein, Neil Bowers, Nicholas Clark, Paul Evans, Paul Marquess, Richard
Leach, Sawyer X, Sergey Poznyakoff, Sven Kirmess, Thibault Duponchelle, Todd
Rinaldo, 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.

For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors, please
see the F<AUTHORS> file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release version 35.3 on 20th August 2021.
The next major stable release of Perl should appear in the first half of 2022.
