If you are upgrading from an earlier release such as 5.28.0, first read perl5281delta, which describes differences between 5.28.0 and 5.28.1.
All digits in a run still have to come from the same set of ten digits.
[perl #133547] <https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=133547>
SIP prevents binaries in /bin (and a few other places) being passed the "DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH" environment variable. For our purposes this prevents "DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH" from being passed to the shell, which prevents that variable being passed to the testing or build process, so running "perl" couldn't find libperl.dylib.
To work around that, the initial build of the perl executable expects to find libperl.dylib in the build directory, and the library path is then adjusted during installation to point to the installed library.
[perl #126706] <https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=126706>
This allows code like:
perl -i -ne 'print "Foo"; last'
to replace the input file, while code like:
perl -i -ne 'print "Foo"; die'
will not. Partly resolves [perl #133659].
[perl #133659] <https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=133659>
close(STDIN); open(CHILD, "|wc -l")'
because the child's stdin would be closed on exec. This has now been fixed.

Perl continues to flourish into its fourth decade thanks to a vibrant community of users and developers. The following people are known to have contributed the improvements that became Perl 5.28.2:
Aaron Crane, Abigail, Andy Dougherty, David Mitchell, Karen Etheridge, Karl Williamson, Leon Timmermans, Nicolas R., Sawyer X, Steve Hay, Tina Mueller, Tony Cook, Zak B. Elep.
The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically generated from version control history. In particular, it does not include the names of the (very much appreciated) contributors who reported issues to the Perl bug tracker.
Many of the changes included in this version originated in the CPAN modules included in Perl's core. We're grateful to the entire CPAN community for helping Perl to flourish.
For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors, please see the AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.
If you believe you have an unreported bug, please run the perlbug 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 see "SECURITY VULNERABILITY CONTACT INFORMATION" in perlsec for details of how to report the issue.
This will send an email to the Perl 5 Porters list with your show of thanks.
