Version 5.16.1 of Perl

Avatar

Release Notes: Enhancements were made to code features such as "use", which now explicitly enables feature bundles, a more consistent "eval" operator, and a revamped "substr" function. The "__SUB__" sequence now returns a reference to the current subroutine, allowing for recursive subroutines to be written more simply. Support for Unicode 6.1 was improved. Many other minor improvements and bugfixes, along with several deprecations, were made.

Release Notes: This release contains one major and a number of minor security fixes. It fixes a possible vulnerability to a denial-of-service attack by use of a carefully-crafted set of hash keys, a segmentation fault when reading or writing strings greater than 2^31 bytes in size, and a memory leak in Encode.xs's UTF-8 encoding implementation.
