So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the
hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of
making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking
the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
There was nothing so VERY remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so
VERY much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, 'Oh dear! Oh
dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred
to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all
seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT
OF ITS WAISTCOAT-POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice
started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never
before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take
out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it,
and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole
under the hedge.
In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how
in the world she was to get out again.
- Lewis Carroll, /Alice's Adentures in Wonderland/
I've just uploaded the first release candidate for Perl 5.12.0 to
PAUSE. Shortly, you'll find it at:
SHA1 sums for this release are:
The differences from RC0 are relatively small, consisting primarily of
documentation updates and a few small regression fixes.
It is imperative that you test this release candidate with any software
written in Perl which you use or maintain. If no "showstopper" class
bugs are found in the next 7 days, we will release a virtually identical
tarball as Perl 5.12.0.
You can find a list of errata - known bugs or modules known to be
incompatible with 5.12.0 - at http://dev.perl.org/perl5/errata.html
