Perl 5.12.4-RC1 is now available
Pheasant is pleasant, of course,
And terrapin, too, is tasty,
Lobster I freely endorse,
In pate or patty or pasty.
But there's nothing the matter with butter,
And nothing the matter with jam,
And the warmest greetings I utter
To the ham and the yam and the clam.
For they're food,
And I think very fondly of food.
Through I'm broody at times
When bothered by rhymes,
-- Ogden Nash, "The Clean Plater"

It's very important that you test this release with any software written

found in the next few days, we will release a virtually identical
tarball as Perl 5.12.4.
