3391
3392The only language change in this release is the recension of support
3393for named closures: Now, no subroutine declared "sub foo {}" can be
3394a closure. (This is a return to the behavior of 5.003.) In addition,
3395there are new warnings triggered by any apparent attempt to use named
3396functions as closures.
3397
3398And, as usual, there are the usual little fixes, documentation
3399updates, and expanded tests. This is good stuff. "I love you, man!"

3560Lots of internal cleanup in this patch, especially plugged memory
3561leaks when embedded Perl interpreters shut down and restart. The
3562method cache is now invisible to user code. And there is a new test
3563directory, "t/pragma".
3564
3565IMHO, this is Beta quality code.
