Message ID:
"There were two classes of charitable people:
 one, the people who did a little and made a great deal of noise;
 the other, the people who did a great deal and made no noise at all."

Perl 5.35.7 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.35.6 and contains approximately 21,000 lines of changes across 230 files
from 18 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 19,000 lines of changes to 170 .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 5.35.7:

Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Felipe Gasper, Graham
Knop, Jakub Wilk, James E Keenan, James Raspass, Karl Williamson, Michiel
Beijen, Mike Fulton, Neil Bowers, Nicholas Clark, Paul Evans, Richard Leach,
Steve Hay, TAKAI Kousuke, Tomasz Konojacki, 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 AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.
We expect to release version 35.8 on 20th January 2022.
The next major stable release of Perl should appear in the first half of 2022.
