99
1005.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

1045.55_02 Sat Apr 6 03:09:15 EST 2002
105 [[ Bug Fixes ]]

107 - MakeMaker might not be recognizing it's in PERL_SRC on Win32.
108 Made safer.
109 - For some reason MM_VMS was using $Config{arch} instead of
110 $Config{archname}

118
1195.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
120 [[ API Changes ]]
121 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
122 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
123 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
124
125 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
126 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
127 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
128 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
129 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
130 inside a distdir.
131 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
132 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
133 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
134 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
135 make comments (bleadperl)
136 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
137 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
138 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95
139 - Fixed recursive Makefile.PL scan on VMS so it skips the distdir
140 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
141 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
142 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.
143
144 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
145 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.
146
147 [[ Test Fixes ]]
148 - Paul Green's which_perl patch to build a proper Perl on systems
149 that use command extensions.
150 - basic.t's Makefile.PL PREFIX call wasn't properly quoted for VMS
151 (Craig Berry)
152 - little initialization glitch in MM_Win32.t
153
154 [[ Internals ]]
155 - INST_* constants moved to init_INST
156 - INSTALL* constants moved to inst_INSTALL
157 * Internal warning supression removed.

1785.53_01 Fri Mar 29 00:13:02 EST 2002
179 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
180 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
181 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
182 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
183 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
184 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
185 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
186 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
187 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
188 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
189 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
190 broke this. Fixed.
191 * Fixing installing on VMS.
192
1935.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
194 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
195 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
196 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
197 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
198 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
199 Compensating for the bug.
200 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
201 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
202
203 [[ Doc Changes ]]
204 - Expanding Known Good list
205 - Adding Known Programs to README
206
2075.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
208 [[ API Changes ]]
209 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
210 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
211 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
212 not be updated.
213 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
214 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
215
216 [[ New Features ]]
217 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
218
219 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
220 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
221 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
222 version installed
223 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
224 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
225 of the tests from running.
226 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
227 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
228 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
229 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
230 (bleadperl@14978)
231 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
232 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
233 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
234 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
235 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
236 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
237 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
238 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
239 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
240 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
241 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
242
2435.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
244 [[ API Changes ]]
245 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
246 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
247 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
248 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
249 more than five years).
250 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
251 see how its useful outside the core.
252
253 [[ New Features ]]
254 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
255 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
256 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
257 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
258 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
259
260 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
261 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
262 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
263 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
264 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
265 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
266 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
267
268 [[ Doc Changes ]]
269 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
270 reflecting its odd behavior.
271 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
272 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
273 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
274
275 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
276 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
277 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
278 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
279 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
280 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
281 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
282 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
283 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
284 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
285
2865.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
287 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
288 chdir without breaking @INC.
289 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
290 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
291 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
292 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
293 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
294 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
295
296 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
297 change.
298 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
299 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
300 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
301 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
302 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
303 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
304 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
305 backporting
306 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
307 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
308 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
309 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
310 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
311 @MM::ISA does that itself.
312 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
313 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
314 explicitly required MM_Unix.
315 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
316 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
317 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
318 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
319 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
320 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
321 to EU::MM.
322 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
323
3245.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
325 - No longer requiring Test::More
326 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 327 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
328 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
329 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
330 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
331 No longer obsolete
332 - Little test fixes
333

MS
3345.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
335 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
336 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
337 work on Win32/5.6.1.
338 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
339 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
340 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
341 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
342 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
343 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
344
3455.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
346 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.
347
e0678a30 3485.48_01 Wed Jan 16 15:10:28 EST 2002
39234879
MS
349 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
350 * Backported to 5.6.1
351 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
352 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
353 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
354 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
