|Solaris||A separate DTrace is now build for miniperl, which means that perl can be compiled with -Dusedtrace on Solaris again.|
A number of regressions on VMS have been fixed. In addition to minor cleanup
of questionable expressions in vms.c, file permissions should no longer be
garbled by the PerlIO layer, and spurious record boundaries should no longer be
introduced by the PerlIO layer during output.
For more details and discussion on the latter, see:
|VOS||A few very small changes were made to the build process on VOS to better support the platform. Longer-than-32-character filenames are now supported on OpenVOS, and build properly without IPv6 support.|

If you find what you think is a bug, you might check the articles recently posted to the comp.lang.perl.misc newsgroup and the perl bug database at http://rt.perl.org/perlbug/ . There may also be information at http://www.perl.org/ , the Perl Home Page.
If you believe you have an unreported bug, please run the <B>perlbugB> 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 email@example.com to be analysed by the Perl porting team.
If the bug you are reporting has security implications, which make it inappropriate to send to a publicly archived mailing list, then please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This points to a closed subscription unarchived mailing list, which includes all the core committers, who will be able to help assess the impact of issues, figure out a resolution, and help co-ordinate the release of patches to mitigate or fix the problem across all platforms on which Perl is supported. Please only use this address for security issues in the Perl core, not for modules independently distributed on CPAN.
