2 - MacOS Classic fixes from Pudge: recursive make repair,
3 post_initialize() now used, DEFINE & INC work with relative paths,
4 removed dead hybrid method/function call code.

6 warn and try to soldier on rather than just vomiting.
7 - Netware whitespace nits (bleadperl@16811)
8 - Netware Perl version number tag when building dynamic libraries
9 needs to match the current perl version instead of being hard coded
10 (a mutation of bleadperl@16851)
11 - OS/2 bug in TEST_F target found by John Poltorak (bleadperl@16839)
12 - README in 6.00 still declared this as alpha.

128
1295.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

1485.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
149 [[ API Changes ]]
150 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
151 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
152 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
153
154 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
155 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
156 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
157 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
158 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
159 inside a distdir.
160 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
161 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
162 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
163 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
164 make comments (bleadperl)
165 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
166 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.

172
173 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
174 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.

208 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
209 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
210 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
211 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
212 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
213 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
214 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
215 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
216 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
217 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
218 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
219 broke this. Fixed.
220 * Fixing installing on VMS.
221
2225.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
223 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
224 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
225 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
226 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
227 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
228 Compensating for the bug.
229 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
230 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
231
232 [[ Doc Changes ]]
233 - Expanding Known Good list
234 - Adding Known Programs to README
235
2365.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
237 [[ API Changes ]]
238 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
239 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
240 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
241 not be updated.
242 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
243 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
244
245 [[ New Features ]]
246 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
247
248 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
249 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
250 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
251 version installed
252 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
253 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
254 of the tests from running.
255 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
256 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
257 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
258 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
259 (bleadperl@14978)
260 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
261 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
262 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
263 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
264 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
265 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
266 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
267 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
268 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
269 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
270 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
271
2725.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
273 [[ API Changes ]]
274 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
275 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
276 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
277 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
278 more than five years).
279 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
280 see how its useful outside the core.
281
282 [[ New Features ]]
283 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
284 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
285 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
286 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
287 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
288
289 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
290 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
291 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
292 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
293 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
294 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
295 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
296
297 [[ Doc Changes ]]
298 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
299 reflecting its odd behavior.
300 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
301 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
302 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
303
304 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
305 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
306 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
307 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
308 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
309 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
310 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
311 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
312 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
313 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
314
3155.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
316 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
317 chdir without breaking @INC.
318 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
319 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
320 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
321 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
322 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
323 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
324
325 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
326 change.
327 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
328 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
329 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
330 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
331 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
332 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
333 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
334 backporting
335 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
336 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
337 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
338 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
339 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
340 @MM::ISA does that itself.
341 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
342 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
343 explicitly required MM_Unix.
344 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
345 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
346 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
347 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
348 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
349 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
350 to EU::MM.
351 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
352
3535.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
354 - No longer requiring Test::More
355 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 356 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
357 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
358 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
359 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
360 No longer obsolete
361 - Little test fixes

3635.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
364 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
365 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
366 work on Win32/5.6.1.
367 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
368 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
369 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
370 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
371 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
372 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
373
3745.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
375 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

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