    Perl 5.30.0 represents approximately 11 months of development since Perl 5.28.0 and contains approximately 620,000 lines of changes across 1,300 files from 58 authors.
    This seems like a very high number of "lines of changes"...

    That's about 1.5 line-changes per minute on average over 11 months - can that really be true or am I misunderstanding this metric?

      Changes are not dominated by code, but external data.

      Didn't they unify the indentation style?

    so, does it come with better sub signatures now? =)

      I ran out of time and enthusiasm to get signatures sorted for 5.30. Hopefully this will get gone for 5.32 instead.

      Dave.

        Thank you for all the work you have put into Perl! And if it helps to hear it, I would absolutely love to see signatures come out of experimental state! :-)

        That's sad ... :(

        Thanks for your efforts!!! :)

      Don't know about sigs, but variable length lookbehind in regex is something I've been desiring for many years!
