Perl 5.15.3 released

Perl 5.15.3 (Development) was released yesterday with a brand new object-oriented Perl Tutorial. You can review what changes were made since Perl 5.15.2 here. To install it using App::perlbrew,  type perlbrew install perl-5.15.3. If you want to use Padre on it, you need to add -Dusethreads at the end of that command. What's so great is the amount of work the Perl community is dedicating to developing, maintaining and improving Perl 5:
"..Perl 5.15.3 represents approximately 2 months of development since Perl 5.15.2 and contains approximately 160,000 lines of changes across 700 files from 44 authors..."
"..Perl 5.15.1 represents approximately 5 weeks of development since Perl 5.15.0 and contains approximately 220,000 lines of changes across 650 files from 37 authors..."
"..Perl 5.15.0 represents approximately five weeks of development since Perl 5.14.0 and contains approximately 54,000 lines of changes across 618 files from 57 authors..."
Thanks for your totally awesome work!
Perl rocks :)
