News

   Perl 5.26.0-RC1 was [1]released and tested thoroughly. We will need to
   also release RC2.

   Dave Mitchell [2]took another stab at the idea of short-string PVs. The
   new approach seems promising.

Suggested patches

   Kent Fredric opened a ticket ([18]Perl #131304 to collect the
additionally
   discussed prose regarding . in @INC.

   Jim Keenan [19]provided a patch to fix a Makefile.PL issue in
   [20]Time::HiRes with the issue of . in @INC.

Discussion

   Zakariyya Mughal [21]asked about supporting file path names under
Windows.
   The task seems more involved than one might think as explained by Leon
   Timmermans in the thread.

   Karl Williamson [22]suggests (RFC: Add new string comparison macros in
   handy.h) adding new string comparison macros.
