Perl 5.35.6 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.35.5 and contains approximately 16,000 lines of changes across 320 files
from 10 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 13,000 lines of changes to 240 .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 5.35.6:

Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, H.Merijn Brand, James E Keenan, Leon Timmermans,
Pete Houston, Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, Robert Rothenberg, Sergey
Poznyakoff, 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 5.35.7 on December 20th, 2021.
The next major stable release of Perl should appear in the first half of

Be excellent to each other!
