111
1125.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

1165.55_02 Sat Apr 6 03:09:15 EST 2002
117 [[ Bug Fixes ]]

1315.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
132 [[ API Changes ]]
133 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
134 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
135 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
136
137 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
138 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
139 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
140 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
141 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
142 inside a distdir.
143 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
144 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
145 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
146 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
147 make comments (bleadperl)
148 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
149 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
150 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95

152 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
153 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
154 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.
155
156 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
157 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.
158

163 (Craig Berry)
164 - little initialization glitch in MM_Win32.t
165
166 [[ Internals ]]
167 - INST_* constants moved to init_INST
168 - INSTALL* constants moved to inst_INSTALL

1905.53_01 Fri Mar 29 00:13:02 EST 2002
191 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
192 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
193 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
194 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
195 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
196 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
197 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
198 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
199 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
200 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
201 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
202 broke this. Fixed.
203 * Fixing installing on VMS.
204
2055.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
206 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
207 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
208 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
209 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
210 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
211 Compensating for the bug.
212 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
213 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
214
215 [[ Doc Changes ]]
216 - Expanding Known Good list
217 - Adding Known Programs to README
218
2195.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
220 [[ API Changes ]]
221 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
222 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
223 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
224 not be updated.
225 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
226 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
227
228 [[ New Features ]]
229 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
230
231 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
232 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
233 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
234 version installed
235 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
236 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
237 of the tests from running.
238 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
239 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
240 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
241 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
242 (bleadperl@14978)
243 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
244 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
245 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
246 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
247 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
248 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
249 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
250 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
251 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
252 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
253 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
254
2555.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
256 [[ API Changes ]]
257 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
258 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
259 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
260 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
261 more than five years).
262 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
263 see how its useful outside the core.
264
265 [[ New Features ]]
266 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
267 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
268 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
269 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
270 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
271
272 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
273 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
274 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
275 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
276 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
277 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
278 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
279
280 [[ Doc Changes ]]
281 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
282 reflecting its odd behavior.
283 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
284 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
285 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
286
287 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
288 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
289 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
290 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
291 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
292 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
293 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
294 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
295 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
296 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
297
2985.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
299 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
300 chdir without breaking @INC.
301 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
302 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
303 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
304 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
305 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
306 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
307
308 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
309 change.
310 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
311 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
312 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
313 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
314 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
315 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
316 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
317 backporting
318 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
319 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
320 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
321 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
322 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
323 @MM::ISA does that itself.
324 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
325 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
326 explicitly required MM_Unix.
327 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
328 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
329 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
330 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
331 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
332 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
333 to EU::MM.
334 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
335
3365.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
337 - No longer requiring Test::More
338 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 339 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
340 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
341 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
342 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
343 No longer obsolete
344 - Little test fixes
345

MS
3465.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
347 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
348 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
349 work on Win32/5.6.1.
350 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
351 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
352 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
353 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
354 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
355 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
356
3575.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
358 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

e0678a30 3605.48_01 Wed Jan 16 15:10:28 EST 2002
39234879
MS
361 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
362 * Backported to 5.6.1
363 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
364 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
365 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
366 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
