enhancement update in Fedora 29 for perl

Status: stable 5 months ago

Updated to the latest release

This release fixes a linker failure when embedding perl interpreter using ExtUtils::Embed. It also fixes memory leaks when compiling a typed hash dereference, cloning a regular expression, spawning threads in a BEGIN phase, assigning a regular expression to a non-copy-on-write string, assignig to a localized ${^WARNING_BITS}, parsing misindented here-documents, looking up a package name, deletion in a tied hash dies, and when warning about a malformed UTF-8 string. It also fixes a buffer overread when handling a scope error in qr/(?{/ and when parsing a regular expression with an unknown character name. It also fixes a crash when matching case insensitively. It also fixes mbstate_t initialization in POSIX::mblen subroutine.
