Perl 5.37.6 has been released
Message ID:
   Queens sighs with the air of someone who is used to not being
   understood. She takes out her phone and starts texting someone,
   her bottom lip poked out a little.

   Brooklyn's expression turns grim. To Broca she says, "You said
   becoming a city punches through other universes."
   So she's not stupid. Bronca inclined her head to the woman, in
   respect if not in approval. "Yes".

   "Okay, so." Brooklyn visibly braces herself. "So what
   happens to those universes that our city punches through?"

Perl 5.37.6 represents approximately 4 weeks of development since Perl
5.37.5 and contains approximately 16,000 lines of changes across 230 
files from 26 authors.

Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there 
were approximately 12,000 lines of changes to 130 .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 5.37.6:

Alexander Nikolov, Andreas König, Aristotle Pagaltzis, Bram, Branislav
Zahradník, chromatic, David Mitchell, E. Choroba, Elvin Aslanov, Felipe
Gasper, Graham Knop, James E Keenan, Joe McMahon, Johan Vromans, Karl
Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Mattia Barbon, Max Maischein, Paul Evans,
Ricardo Signes, Richard Leach, TAKAI Kousuke, Todd Rinaldo, Tom 
Stellard, 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 F<AUTHORS> file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release version 5.37.7 on 2022-12-20.
