103
1045.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

1085.55_02 Sat Apr 6 03:09:15 EST 2002
109 [[ Bug Fixes ]]

111 - MakeMaker might not be recognizing it's in PERL_SRC on Win32.
112 Made safer.
113 - For some reason MM_VMS was using $Config{arch} instead of
114 $Config{archname}

122
1235.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
124 [[ API Changes ]]
125 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
126 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
127 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
128
129 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
130 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
131 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
132 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
133 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
134 inside a distdir.
135 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
136 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
137 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
138 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
139 make comments (bleadperl)
140 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
141 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
142 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95
143 - Fixed recursive Makefile.PL scan on VMS so it skips the distdir
144 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
145 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
146 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.
147
148 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
149 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.
150

155 (Craig Berry)
156 - little initialization glitch in MM_Win32.t
157
158 [[ Internals ]]
159 - INST_* constants moved to init_INST
160 - INSTALL* constants moved to inst_INSTALL
161 * Internal warning supression removed.

1825.53_01 Fri Mar 29 00:13:02 EST 2002
183 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
184 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
185 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
186 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
187 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
188 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
189 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
190 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
191 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
192 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
193 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
194 broke this. Fixed.
195 * Fixing installing on VMS.
196
1975.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
198 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
199 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
200 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
201 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
202 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
203 Compensating for the bug.
204 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
205 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
206
207 [[ Doc Changes ]]
208 - Expanding Known Good list
209 - Adding Known Programs to README
210
2115.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
212 [[ API Changes ]]
213 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
214 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
215 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
216 not be updated.
217 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
218 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
219
220 [[ New Features ]]
221 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
222
223 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
224 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
225 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
226 version installed
227 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
228 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
229 of the tests from running.
230 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
231 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
232 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
233 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
234 (bleadperl@14978)
235 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
236 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
237 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
238 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
239 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
240 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
241 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
242 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
243 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
244 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
245 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
246
2475.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
248 [[ API Changes ]]
249 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
250 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
251 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
252 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
253 more than five years).
254 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
255 see how its useful outside the core.
256
257 [[ New Features ]]
258 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
259 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
260 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
261 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
262 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
263
264 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
265 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
266 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
267 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
268 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
269 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
270 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
271
272 [[ Doc Changes ]]
273 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
274 reflecting its odd behavior.
275 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
276 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
277 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
278
279 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
280 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
281 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
282 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
283 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
284 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
285 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
286 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
287 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
288 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
289
2905.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
291 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
292 chdir without breaking @INC.
293 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
294 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
295 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
296 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
297 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
298 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
299
300 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
301 change.
302 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
303 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
304 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
305 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
306 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
307 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
308 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
309 backporting
310 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
311 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
312 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
313 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
314 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
315 @MM::ISA does that itself.
316 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
317 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
318 explicitly required MM_Unix.
319 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
320 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
321 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
322 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
323 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
324 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
325 to EU::MM.
326 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
327
3285.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
329 - No longer requiring Test::More
330 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 331 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
332 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
333 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
334 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
335 No longer obsolete
336 - Little test fixes
337
39234879
MS
3385.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
339 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
340 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
341 work on Win32/5.6.1.
342 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
343 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
344 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
345 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
346 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
347 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
348
3495.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
350 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

e0678a30 3525.48_01 Wed Jan 16 15:10:28 EST 2002
39234879
MS
353 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
354 * Backported to 5.6.1
355 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
356 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
357 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
358 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
