Good afternoon! We're gonna have a great jump today!
Okay, crank a hard cutback as you hit the wall.
There's a screaming bottom curve, so watch out.
Remember: Rip it! Roll it! And punch it!

Perl 5.37.1 represents approximately 3 weeks of development since Perl
5.37.0 and contains approximately 75,000 lines of changes across 240 files
from 28 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
approximately 30,000 lines of changes to 150 .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 5.37.1:

Brian Greenfield, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Clemens Wasser, Dan Book, David
Mitchell, Ed Sabol, Elvin Aslanov, Graham Knop, Hugo van der Sanden, James E
Keenan, jkahrman, Karl Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Mark Jason Dominus,
Matthew Horsfall, Mohammad S Anwar, Neil Bowers, Nicholas Clark, Nicolas
Mendoza, Nicolas R, Paul Evans, Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, Sidney
Markowitz, Sisyphus, Tomasz Konojacki, Tony Cook, Yves Orton.

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 5.37.2 on July 20th, 2022.

The next major stable release of Perl should appear in the first half of 2023.
