The perldelta manuals comes to mind:

	perldoc perldelta

This will show you the changes between the current and the last release
of Perl. It will also tell you (in the DESCRIPTION section) what the
previous perldelta manual is called (something like perl5301delta, for
the changes between Perl 5.30.0 and 5.30.1 for example).

This might not be exactly what you were looking for, but it's what
popped up in my mind at least.  Apart from that, "perldoc perl" contains
the list of other Perl manuals, for example perlintro.
