24
255.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002
26 - Reversing "fix" for RT 444. It wasn't really fixed and it
27 caused havoc with Compress::Zlib and Tk.

30 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
31 - Craig Berry fixed install on VMS (again, I munged the last patch)
32 - MakeMaker might not be recognizing it's in PERL_SRC on Win32.
33 Made safer.
34 - For some reason MM_VMS was using $Config{arch} instead of
35 $Config{archname}
36 - Fix (well, hack) for creating ABSPERL on VMS.

445.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
45 [[ API Changes ]]
46 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
47 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
48 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
49
50 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
51 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
52 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
53 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
54 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
55 inside a distdir.
56 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
57 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
58 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
59 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
60 make comments (bleadperl)
61 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
62 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
63 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95
64 - Fixed recursive Makefile.PL scan on VMS so it skips the distdir
65 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
66 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
67 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.
68
69 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
70 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.
71
72 [[ Test Fixes ]]
73 - Paul Green's which_perl patch to build a proper Perl on systems
74 that use command extensions.
75 - basic.t's Makefile.PL PREFIX call wasn't properly quoted for VMS
76 (Craig Berry)
77 - little initialization glitch in MM_Win32.t
78
79 [[ Internals ]]
80 - INST_* constants moved to init_INST
81 - INSTALL* constants moved to inst_INSTALL
82 * Internal warning supression removed.
83 - Temporarily turning off SelfLoader in MM_Unix so warnings
84 have the right line numbers.

1035.53_01 Fri Mar 29 00:13:02 EST 2002
104 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
105 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
106 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
107 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
108 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
109 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
110 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
111 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
112 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
113 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
114 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
115 broke this. Fixed.
116 * Fixing installing on VMS.
117
1185.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
119 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
120 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
121 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
122 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
123 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
124 Compensating for the bug.
125 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
126 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
127
128 [[ Doc Changes ]]
129 - Expanding Known Good list
130 - Adding Known Programs to README
131
1325.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
133 [[ API Changes ]]
134 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
135 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
136 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
137 not be updated.
138 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
139 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
140
141 [[ New Features ]]
142 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
143
144 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
145 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
146 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
147 version installed
148 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
149 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
150 of the tests from running.
151 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
152 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
153 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
154 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
155 (bleadperl@14978)
156 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
157 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
158 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
159 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
160 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
161 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
162 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
163 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
164 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
165 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
166 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
167
1685.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
169 [[ API Changes ]]
170 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
171 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
172 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
173 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
174 more than five years).
175 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
176 see how its useful outside the core.
177
178 [[ New Features ]]
179 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
180 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
181 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
182 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
183 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
184
185 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
186 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
187 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
188 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
189 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
190 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
191 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
192
193 [[ Doc Changes ]]
194 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
195 reflecting its odd behavior.
196 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
197 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
198 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
199
200 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
201 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
202 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
203 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
204 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
205 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
206 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
207 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
208 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
209 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
210
2115.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
212 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
213 chdir without breaking @INC.
214 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
215 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
216 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
217 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
218 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
219 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
220
221 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
222 change.
223 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
224 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
225 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
226 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
227 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
228 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
229 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
230 backporting
231 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
232 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
233 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
234 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
235 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
236 @MM::ISA does that itself.
237 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
238 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
239 explicitly required MM_Unix.
240 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
241 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
242 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
243 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
244 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
245 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
246 to EU::MM.
247 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
248
2495.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
250 - No longer requiring Test::More
251 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 252 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
253 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
254 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
255 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
256 No longer obsolete
257 - Little test fixes

2595.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
260 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
261 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
262 work on Win32/5.6.1.
263 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
264 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
265 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
266 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
267 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
268 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
269
2705.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
271 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

e0678a30 2735.48_01 Wed Jan 16 15:10:28 EST 2002
39234879
MS
274 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
275 * Backported to 5.6.1
276 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
277 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
278 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
279 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
