To build and install Perl, and to find out how to report problems, please read the INSTALL file, and any relevant README.platform file.

As always, you should conduct an appropriate level of testing before using any new product in your production environment.

The "perldelta", which describes the most important changes for this release is available in the source distribution, or at:
