in thread perl 5.16.2 is now available
It seems the release managers don't want to copy the top perldelta entries (where is perl5162delta? can't find it on https://metacpan.org/release/RJBS/perl-5.16.2/), and they can't link to the announcement on cpan or metacpan, because the announcements doesn't wait for the release to percolate to the mirrors.
I think it's a bad user experience; the top $n ($n = 3..5) changes should be included in the release announcement.
