68
695.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

74 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
75 - Craig Berry fixed install on VMS (again, I munged the last patch)
76 - MakeMaker might not be recognizing it's in PERL_SRC on Win32.
77 Made safer.
78 - For some reason MM_VMS was using $Config{arch} instead of
79 $Config{archname}
80 - Fix (well, hack) for creating ABSPERL on VMS.

885.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
89 [[ API Changes ]]
90 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
91 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
92 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
93
94 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
95 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
96 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
97 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
98 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
99 inside a distdir.
100 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
101 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
102 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
103 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
104 make comments (bleadperl)
105 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
106 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
107 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95
108 - Fixed recursive Makefile.PL scan on VMS so it skips the distdir
109 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
110 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
111 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.
112
113 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
114 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.
115
116 [[ Test Fixes ]]
117 - Paul Green's which_perl patch to build a proper Perl on systems
118 that use command extensions.
119 - basic.t's Makefile.PL PREFIX call wasn't properly quoted for VMS
120 (Craig Berry)
121 - little initialization glitch in MM_Win32.t
122
123 [[ Internals ]]
124 - INST_* constants moved to init_INST
125 - INSTALL* constants moved to inst_INSTALL
126 * Internal warning supression removed.

1475.53_01 Fri Mar 29 00:13:02 EST 2002
148 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
149 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
150 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
151 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
152 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
153 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
154 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
155 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
156 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
157 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
158 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
159 broke this. Fixed.
160 * Fixing installing on VMS.
161
1625.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
163 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
164 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
165 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
166 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
167 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
168 Compensating for the bug.
169 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
170 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
171
172 [[ Doc Changes ]]
173 - Expanding Known Good list
174 - Adding Known Programs to README
175
1765.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
177 [[ API Changes ]]
178 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
179 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
180 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
181 not be updated.
182 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
183 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
184
185 [[ New Features ]]
186 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
187
188 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
189 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
190 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
191 version installed
192 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
193 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
194 of the tests from running.
195 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
196 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
197 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
198 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
199 (bleadperl@14978)
200 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
201 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
202 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
203 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
204 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
205 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
206 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
207 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
208 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
209 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
210 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.

2125.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
213 [[ API Changes ]]
214 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
215 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
216 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
217 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
218 more than five years).
219 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
220 see how its useful outside the core.
221
222 [[ New Features ]]
223 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
224 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
225 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
226 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
227 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
228
229 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
230 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
231 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
232 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
233 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
234 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
235 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
236
237 [[ Doc Changes ]]
238 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
239 reflecting its odd behavior.
240 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
241 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
242 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
243
244 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
245 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
246 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
247 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
248 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
249 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
250 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
251 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
252 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
253 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
254
2555.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
256 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
257 chdir without breaking @INC.
258 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
259 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
260 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
261 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
262 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
263 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
264
265 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
266 change.
267 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
268 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
269 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
270 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
271 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
272 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
273 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
274 backporting
275 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
276 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
277 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
278 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
279 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
280 @MM::ISA does that itself.
281 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
282 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
283 explicitly required MM_Unix.
284 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
285 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
286 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
287 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
288 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
289 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
290 to EU::MM.
291 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
292
2935.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
294 - No longer requiring Test::More
295 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 296 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
297 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
298 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
299 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
300 No longer obsolete
301 - Little test fixes

3035.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
304 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
305 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
306 work on Win32/5.6.1.
307 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
308 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
309 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
310 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
311 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
312 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
313
3145.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
315 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

39234879
MS
318 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
319 * Backported to 5.6.1
320 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
321 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
322 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
323 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
