  Patches

   Tony Cook provided a patch for [31]Perl #131570 (SIGBUS in
   Perl_leave_adjust_stacks()).

   Tony also provided a patch for [32]Perl #131546 (Can open() to an
   in-memory scalar return false?).

   Another patch by Tony, this time for [33]Perl #131577
(heap-use-after-free
   (READ of size 1) in S_reghop4()).

   Chas Owen provided a patch in [34]Perl #131651: Add to add -P and -N to
   accommodate -p and -n, but using the double diamond operator (<<>>),
which
   is safer.

   Vitali Peli, a new contributor, provided a patch to add descriptions to
   tests in [35]Perl #131655.

Discussion

   Abigail [36]notes that the new /xx does not ignore newlines. The thread
   continued to discuss newlines, as well as comments.

   Todd Rinaldo [37]asked about compiling regular expressions during
runtime.

   Dave Mitchell [38]suggests (deprecate bytes.pm?) deprecating [39]bytes.

   Dave also [40]suggested we discourage the usage of [41]Safe.pm even
   stronger.

   Kenichi Ishigaki [42]mentioned in [43]Perl #131664: (Interpolation of
   @{^CAPTURE} and its friends doesn't work) that the new capture variables
   do not interpolate. Yves Orton already provided a fix for it!
