16.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
2 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
3 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
4 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
5 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
6 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
7 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
8 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
9 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
10 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
11 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
12 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
13 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
14 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
15 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
16 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
17 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
18 sometimes don't get installed.
19 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
20 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
21 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
22 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
23
246.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
25 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
26 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
27 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
28 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
29 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
30 Fixed.
31 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
32 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
33 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
34 (Stas Bekman)
35 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
36 (Craig Berry)
37 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
38 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
39 miserably.
40 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
41
426.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
43 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
44 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
45 Just on OS/2.
46
476.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
48 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
49 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
50 to skip installing a file.
51 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
52 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
53 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
54 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
55 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
56 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
57 removed. No longer relevent.
58 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
59 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
60 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
61 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
62 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
63 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
64 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
65 properly before. (Craig Berry)
66 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
67 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
68 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
69 reading.
70 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
71 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
72 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
73 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
74 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
75
76# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
77# so much change between 6.05 and now.

80 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
81 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
82 warning because of this.
83 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
84 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
85 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
86 Worked around.
87 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
88 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
89
906.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
91 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
92 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
93 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
94 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
95 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
96 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
97 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
98 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
99 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
100 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
101 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
102 Missing since 5.6.1.
103 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
104 command line lengths.
105 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
106 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
107 eof() not honor tied handles.
108 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
109 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
110
1116.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
112 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
113 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
114 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
115 to think modules weren't installed.
116 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
117 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
118 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
119 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
120 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
121 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
122 warn_if_old_packlist().
123 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
124 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
125 in the first place.
126 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
127 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
128 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
129 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
130 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
131 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
132 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
133 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
134 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
135 expansion
136 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
137 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
138 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
139 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
140 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
141 MakeMaker.
142 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
143 - Added compile & POD test
144 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
145 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
146 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
147 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
148 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
149 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
150 [perl #21526]
151
1526.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
153 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
154 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
155 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
156 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
157 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
158 fixpath() work again.
159
1606.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
161 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
162 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
163 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
164 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
165 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
166 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
167 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
168 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
169 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
170 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
171 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
172 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
173 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
174 using that.
175 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
176 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
177 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
178 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
179 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
180 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
181 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
182 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
183 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
184 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
185 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
186 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
187 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
188 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
189 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
190 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
191 by default.
192 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
193 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
194 - Improved DISTNAME docs
195 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
196 * Documented dist()
197 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
198 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
199 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
200 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
201 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
202 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
203 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
204 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
205 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
206 of the clean target.
207 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
208 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
209 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
210 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
211 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
212 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
213 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
214 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
215 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
216 target.
217 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
218 they come first.
219 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
220 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
221 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
222 init_platform().
223 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
224 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
225 init_VERSION().
226 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
227 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
228
229 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
230 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
231 init_others() to init_platform()
232 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
233 init_platform()
234 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
235 constants() to init_platform()
236
237 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
238 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
239 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
240 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
241 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
242 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
243 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
244 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
245 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
246
247 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
248 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
249 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
250 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
251 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
252 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
253 init_VERSION
254 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
255 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
256 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
257
258 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
259 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
260 Everything else was redundant.
261
262 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
263 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
264 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
265 into init_linker().
266 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
267 MM_VMS_VERSION.
268 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
269 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
270 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
271 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
272 overrides.
273 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
274 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
275 unportable part of the realclean target.
276 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
277 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
278 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
279 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
280 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
281 is explicitly set to empty.
282 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
283 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
284 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
285 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
286 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
287 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
288 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
289 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
290 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
291 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
292 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
293 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
294 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
295 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
296 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
297 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
298 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
299 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
300 dont_execute arguments.
301 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
302 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
303 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
304 commands.
305 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
306 be pointless.
307 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
308 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
309 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
310 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
311
3126.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
313 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
314 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
315
3166.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
317 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
318 right.
319 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
320 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
321 - Documented the LD flag.
322 * Documented prompt()
323 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
324 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
325 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
326 (bleadperl 17488)
327 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
328 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
329 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
330 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
331 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
332 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
333 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
334 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
335 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
336 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
337 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)
338

361 * WriteMakefile now a bit more tolerant of wrong arguments, it will
362 warn and try to soldier on rather than just vomiting.
363 - Netware whitespace nits (bleadperl@16811)
364 - Netware Perl version number tag when building dynamic libraries
365 needs to match the current perl version instead of being hard coded

508 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
509
510 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
511 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
512 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
513 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
514 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
515 inside a distdir.
516 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
517 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
518 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
519 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
520 make comments (bleadperl)
521 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
522 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
523 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95

567 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
568 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
569 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
570 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
571 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
572 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were

594 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
595 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
596 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
597 not be updated.
598 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.

607 version installed
608 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
609 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
610 of the tests from running.
611 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
612 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
613 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
614 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
615 (bleadperl@14978)
616 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
617 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
618 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
619 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
620 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
621 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
622 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
623 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
624 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
625 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
626 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.

636 see how its useful outside the core.

642 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
643 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)

645 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
646 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
647 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
648 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
649 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
650 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
651 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)

665 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
666 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
667 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
668 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
669 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.

6715.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
672 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
673 chdir without breaking @INC.
674 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
675 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
676 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
677 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
678 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
679 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)

681 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
682 change.
683 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
684 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
685 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
686 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
687 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
688 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
689 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
690 backporting
691 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
692 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
693 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
694 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
695 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
696 @MM::ISA does that itself.
697 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
698 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
699 explicitly required MM_Unix.
700 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
701 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
702 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
703 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
704 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
705 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
706 to EU::MM.
707 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
