Description

Hello,

due to change pod/perldelta.pod ("{" should now be escaped) there are deprecation warnings starting with Perl 5.22. It can stop working in next releases, so it would be good to fix it sooner than later. Below is message that gets attached to each run of makeglossaries:

Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/\\\@input{ <-- HERE (.+)\.aux}/ at /usr/bin/makeglossaries line 638.

This is with makeglossaries 2.16.

Evaluation

Thank you. Now fixed in makeglossaries version 2.17, which I've just uploaded to CTAN (bundled with glossaries version 4.20). This should reach the TeX distributions in the next day or so.
