Release announcement for perl 5.37.10
Message ID:
    The time has come,' the Walrus said,
          To talk of many things:
    Of shoes - and ships - and sealing-wax -
          Of cabbages - and kings -
    And why the sea is boiling hot -
          And whether pigs have wings.'
    -- Lewis Carroll. "The Walrus and the Carpenter"

We are elated to announce version 37.10,

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 5.37.10:

Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Lukas Mai, Paul Evans, Philippe
Bruhat (BooK), Richard Leach, Steve Hay, Tomasz Konojacki, Tony Cook, Yves

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.

We expect to release version 5.37.11 on 2023-04-20.

The next major stable release of Perl, 5.38.0 should be released in the
first half of 2023, on or about 2023-05-20.

Have a suitable amount of fun!
