Recently, Perl 5.28 has been released. This gives us the opportunity to check for problems, and eliminate all new warnings it creates before it hits the Linux distributions or Strawberry Perl. See also Item7797, which fixed all new warnings up to Perl 5.26.

-- TWiki:Main/HaraldJoerg - 2018-07-09

The test suite, including the compile-all tests, runs without warnings under Perl 5.28 for the core and the default plugins. I have been running a TWiki from SVN under Perl 5.28 since a week without spotting errors. There were warnings, which again came from a different interpretation of which unescaped braces need to be escaped, which are - as far as the code coverage goes - are fixed.
