I might have missed it, 'cuz i am not subscribed to all possible Perl mailing lists and RSS feeds. Although i would like to have a stable 5.10 ASAP, i liked to imagine that the release date of this important version would be December 18.
    • We just hit code freeze, there should be about a month from that to a real release.

      It's just nobody other than me wants to outright name a date :)

      (And even I'm not willing to name a day)
