16 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
17 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
18 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
19 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
20 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
21 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
22 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
23 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
24 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
25 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
26 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
27 broke this. Fixed.
28 * Fixing installing on VMS.

31 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
32 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
33 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
34 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
35 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
36 Compensating for the bug.
37 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
38 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
39
40 [[ Doc Changes ]]
41 - Expanding Known Good list
42 - Adding Known Programs to README
43
445.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
45 [[ API Changes ]]
46 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
47 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
48 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
49 not be updated.
50 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
51 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
52
53 [[ New Features ]]
54 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
55
56 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
57 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
58 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
59 version installed
60 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
61 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
62 of the tests from running.
63 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
64 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
65 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
66 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
67 (bleadperl@14978)
68 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
69 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
70 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
71 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
72 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
73 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
74 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
75 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
76 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
77 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
78 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
79
805.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
81 [[ API Changes ]]
82 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
83 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
84 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
85 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
86 more than five years).
87 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
88 see how its useful outside the core.
89
90 [[ New Features ]]
91 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
92 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
93 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
94 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
95 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
96
97 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
98 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
99 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
100 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
101 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
102 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
103 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
104
105 [[ Doc Changes ]]
106 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
107 reflecting its odd behavior.
108 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
109 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
110 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
111
112 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
113 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
114 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
115 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
116 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
117 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
118 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
119 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
120 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
121 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
122
1235.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
124 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
125 chdir without breaking @INC.
126 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
127 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
128 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
129 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
130 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
131 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
132
133 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
134 change.
135 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
136 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
137 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
138 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
139 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
140 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
141 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
142 backporting
143 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
144 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
145 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
146 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
147 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
148 @MM::ISA does that itself.
149 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
150 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
151 explicitly required MM_Unix.
152 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
153 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
154 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
155 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
156 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
157 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
158 to EU::MM.
159 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
160
1615.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
162 - No longer requiring Test::More
163 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
75e2e551 164 - Stripped out $Revision: 1.27 $ based $VERSIONs.

MS
165 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
166 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
167 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
168 No longer obsolete
169 - Little test fixes

1715.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
172 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
173 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
174 work on Win32/5.6.1.
175 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
176 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
177 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
178 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
179 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
180 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
181
1825.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
183 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.
184
1855.48_01 Wed Jan 16 15:10:28 EST 200
186 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
187 * Backported to 5.6.1
188 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
189 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
190 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
191 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
