Upcoming 5.34.1 release
Message ID:
Apologies for this being a few months later than I intended, but I
have finally got round to producing a voting file for proposals to get
into 5.34.1, which I would like to release soon (i.e. well before

It must be said that nothing urgent requiring an earlier 5.34.1
release has occurred, otherwise I would have been on it much sooner.
Indeed, the GitHub 5.34.1 milestone
( never had any issues
added to it, and the backport-5.34 label
( only
had 4 things in it, two of which don't really meet the backporting
criteria set out in perlpolicy anyway. (I've added those two to the
bottom of the voting file, in the "Others" section.)

The list is available in the usual place:

(The raw file (
views nicely rendered in some web browsers, e.g. Firefox.)

I've tested all these changes. Two require some VERSION bump magic,
and a963d6d5acabdd8c78afec507b56f890de6d346a has some whitespace
conflicts because of 1f4fbd3b4b26604673abca2a5f911744e826b1f3, but
otherwise they're all good as far as applying and testing are

Please shout if you think anything else that fits the perlpolicy
backporting criteria is worthy of being included.

Committers: Please have a look and consider adding your votes.

Note that there were numerous other changes that I encountered on my
trawl through history since 5.34.0 which might be nice to include, but
again don't really meet the current backporting criteria:
