PP
3139
3140The only language change in this release is the recension of support
3141for named closures: Now, no subroutine declared "sub foo {}" can be
3142a closure. (This is a return to the behavior of 5.003.) In addition,
3143there are new warnings triggered by any apparent attempt to use named
3144functions as closures.
3145
3146And, as usual, there are the usual little fixes, documentation
3147updates, and expanded tests. This is good stuff. "I love you, man!"

3308Lots of internal cleanup in this patch, especially plugged memory
3309leaks when embedded Perl interpreters shut down and restart. The
3310method cache is now invisible to user code. And there is a new test
3311directory, "t/pragma".
3312
3313IMHO, this is Beta quality code.
