14 post_initialize() now used, DEFINE & INC work with relative paths,
15 removed dead hybrid method/function call code.

139
1405.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

1595.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
160 [[ API Changes ]]
161 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
162 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
163 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
164
165 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
166 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
167 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
168 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
169 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
170 inside a distdir.
171 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
172 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
173 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
174 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
175 make comments (bleadperl)
176 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
177 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
178 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95

183
184 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
185 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.

219 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
220 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
221 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
222 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
223 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
224 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
225 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
226 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
227 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
228 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
229 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
230 broke this. Fixed.
231 * Fixing installing on VMS.

236 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
237 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
238 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
239 Compensating for the bug.
240 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
241 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
242
243 [[ Doc Changes ]]
244 - Expanding Known Good list
245 - Adding Known Programs to README
246
2475.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
248 [[ API Changes ]]
249 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
250 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
251 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
252 not be updated.
253 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
254 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
255
256 [[ New Features ]]
257 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
258
259 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
260 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
261 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
262 version installed
263 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
264 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
265 of the tests from running.
266 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
267 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
268 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
269 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
270 (bleadperl@14978)
271 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
272 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
273 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
274 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
275 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
276 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
277 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
278 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
279 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
280 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
281 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
282
2835.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
284 [[ API Changes ]]
285 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
286 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
287 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
288 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
289 more than five years).
290 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
291 see how its useful outside the core.
292
293 [[ New Features ]]
294 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
295 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
296 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
297 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
298 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
299
300 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
301 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
302 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
303 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
304 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
305 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
306 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
307
308 [[ Doc Changes ]]
309 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
310 reflecting its odd behavior.
311 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
312 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
313 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
314
315 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
316 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
317 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
318 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
319 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
320 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
321 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
322 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
323 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
324 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
325
3265.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
327 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
328 chdir without breaking @INC.
329 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
330 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
331 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
332 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
333 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
334 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
335
336 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
337 change.
338 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
339 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
340 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
341 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
342 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
343 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
344 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
345 backporting
346 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
347 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
348 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
349 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
350 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
351 @MM::ISA does that itself.
352 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
353 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
354 explicitly required MM_Unix.
355 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
356 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
357 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
358 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
359 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
360 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
361 to EU::MM.
362 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
363
3645.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
365 - No longer requiring Test::More
366 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1

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

3745.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002

376 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
377 work on Win32/5.6.1.
378 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
379 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
380 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
381 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
382 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
383 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
384
3855.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002

389 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
390 * Backported to 5.6.1
391 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
392 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
393 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
394 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
