  “What!" cried he, in an accent of greater astonishment than beforem "your second witness is Monsieur Aramis?"
  "Doubtless! Are you not aware that we are never seen one without the others, and that we are called among the Musketeers and the Guards, at the court and in the city, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, or the Three Inseparables?”

    -- Alexandre Dumas, "The Three Musketeers"

We are pleased to announce perl 5.36.0, the first stable release of version 36 of Perl 5.

Perl 5.36.0 represents approximately a year of development since Perl 5.34.0 and contains approximately 250,000 lines of changes across 2,000 files from 82 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were approximately 190,000 lines of changes to 1,300 .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 5.36.0:

Alyssa Ross, Andrew Fresh, Aristotle Pagaltzis, Asher Mancinelli, Atsushi Sugawara, Ben Cornett, Bernd, Biswapriyo Nath, Brad Barden, Bram, Branislav Zahradník, brian d foy, Chad Granum, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Christian Walde (Mithaldu), Christopher Yeleighton, Craig A. Berry, cuishuang, Curtis Poe, Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker, Dan Book, Daniel Laügt, Dan Jacobson, Dan Kogai, Dave Cross, Dave Lambley, David Cantrell, David Golden, David Marshall, David Mitchell, E. Choroba, Eugen Konkov, Felipe Gasper, François Perrad, Graham Knop, H.Merijn Brand, Hugo van der Sanden, Ilya Sashcheka, Ivan Panchenko, Jakub Wilk, James E Keenan, James Raspass, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Leam Hall, Leon Timmermans, Magnus Woldrich, Matthew Horsfall, Max Maischein, Michael G Schwern, Michiel Beijen, Mike Fulton, Neil Bowers, Nicholas Clark, Nicolas R, Niyas Sait, Olaf Alders, Paul Evans, Paul Marquess, Petar-Kaleychev, Pete Houston, Renee Baecker, Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, Robert Rothenberg, Sawyer X, Scott Baker, Sergey Poznyakoff, Sergey Zhmylove, Sisyphus, Slaven Rezic, Steve Hay, Sven Kirmess, TAKAI Kousuke, Thibault Duponchelle, Todd Rinaldo, Tomasz Konojacki, Tomoyuki Sadahiro, Tony Cook, Unicode Consortium, Yves Orton, Михаил Козачков.

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.

The next maintenance release, v5.36.1, will happen in the next few weeks or months.  The next development release, v5.37.0, will happen very, very soon.
