Changes

       This is just a selected list of some of the more notable
       changes.  The numbers refer to the Perl repository change
       numbers; see Changes58 (or Changes in Perl 5.8.1).  In
       addition to these changes, lots of work took place in
       integrating threads, PerlIO, and Unicode; general code
       cleanup; and last but not least porting to non-UNIX lands
       such as Win32, VMS, Cygwin, DJGPP, VOS, MacOS Classic, and
       EBCDIC.

Reporting Bugs

       If you find what you think is a bug, you might check the
       articles recently posted to the comp.lang.perl.misc news­
       group and the perl bug database at http://bugs.perl.org.
       There may also be information at http://www.perl.com/, the
       Perl Home Page.

       If you believe you have an unreported bug, please run the
       perlbug program included with your release.  Be sure to
       trim your bug down to a tiny but sufficient test case.
       Your bug report, along with the output of "perl -V", will
       be sent off to perlbug@perl.org to be analysed by the Perl
       porting team.

       Send omissions or corrections to <perlbug@perl.org>.
