Perl 5.32.1-RC1 is now available!

--0000000000002024b005b87a8efe
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"

Why bother to learn to read when you can smell meat a mile away?  If you
live in Moscow, though, and if you've got an ounce of brain in your head
you can't help learning to read - and without going to night-school
either.  There are forty-thousand dogs in Moscow and I'll bet there's
not one of them so stupid he can't spell out the word 'sausage'.

  -- Mikhail Bulgakov, trans. Michael Glenny, "The Heart of a Dog"

We are delighted to announce the first release candidate of version
32.1, the first maintenance release of version 32 of Perl 5.

You will soon be able to download Perl 5.32.1-RC1 from your favourite
CPAN mirror or find it at:

  https://metacpan.org/release/SHAY/perl-5.32.1-RC1/

SHA1 digests for this release are:

  54bc4050e357b5926fa4f3d57dcc9b01e53bf1ed  perl-5.32.1-RC1.tar.gz
  527ae617b86719c304000194687a93191a1ff143  perl-5.32.1-RC1.tar.xz

You can find a full list of changes in the file "perldelta.pod" located
in the "pod" directory inside the release and on the web.

***Please, please, please*** test your code against perl-5.32.1-RC1.
This is your last chance to point out any critical regressions before
v5.32.1 ships "for real," and we'd rather fix things for v5.32.1 than
for v5.32.2!

The final v5.32.1 is expected to ship on 23rd January.

No regressions on VMS.  There are a tiny handful of long-standing test
failures that I never seem to find a round tuit to do something about,
but nothing new.

Thanks for keeping this important work moving.

Looks good on Cygwin (both 32bit and 64bit) so far.

Maint releases have never had an RC0. The occasional .0 release has
had one (5.12.0, 5.16.0 and 5.32.0), but that's all.
