6 * added semi-private routine rename_country() to Locale::Country,
7 based on a patch from Iain Chalmers.
8 * added test rename.t for the above function.
9 * renamed _alias_code to be alias_code. Have retained the old
10 name for backwards compatibility. Will remove it when the
11 major version number next changes.

14
15 * Split the documentation for all modules into separate pod files.
16 * Made sure all =over were =over 4; some were other values.
17 * The code2code() methods had one more shift than was needed.

21 * Created Locale::Script which provides an interface to the
22 ISO codes for identification of scripts (writing scripts,
23 rather than perl style scripts). The codes are defined
24 by ISO 15924, which is currently in final draft.
25 Thanks to Jarkko for pointing out this new standard.
26 All three code sets are supported, and a test-suite added.
27
28 * Added support for country name variants to Locale::Country,
29 so that
30 country2code('USA')
31 country2code('United States')
32 country2code('United States of America')
33 will all return 'us'.
34 This had been in the LIMITATIONS section since the first version.
35 Patch from TJ Mather <tjmather@tjmather.com> with additional
36 variants from me. Added test-cases for these.
37
38 * Added VERSION to Locale::Constants. Thanks to Jarkko for
39 pointing that it was missing.
40
41 * Should really have bumped major version with previous release,
42 since there was a change to the API.
43
441.06 2001-03-04 neilb
45
46 Added Locale::Constants, which defines three symbols
47 for identifying which codeset is being used:
48
49 LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_2
50 LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3
51 LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC
52
53 Updated Locale::Country to support all three code sets
54 defined by ISO 3166. This was requested by Keith Wall.
55 I haven't added multiple codeset support to the other
56 modules yet - I'll wait until someone asks for them.

581.05 Feb 2001
59
60 Added Locale::Currency, contribution from Michael Hennecke.
61 Added testsuite for it (t/currency.t) and added testcases
62 to t/all.t for the all_* functions.
63
641.04 Dec 2000
65
66 Fixed very minor typos from 1.03!
67
681.03 Dec 2000
69
70 Updated Locale::Country:
71 - fixed spelling of a few countries
72 - added link to a relevant page from CIA world factbook
73
74 Updated Locale::Language:
75 - fixed typo in the documentation (ISO 939 should be 639)
76
771.02 May 2000
78
79 Updated Locale::Country and Locale::Language to reflect changes
80 in the relevant ISO standards. These mainly reflect languages
81 which are new to the relevant standard, and changes in the
82 spelling of some country names.
83
84 Added official URLs for the standards to the SEE ALSO sections
85 of the doc for each module.
86
87 Thanks to Jarkko Hietaniemi for pointing me at the pages
88 with latest versions of ISO 3166 and 639.
89
901.00 March 1998
91
92 Added Locale::Country::_alias_code() so that 'uk' can be added
93 as the code for "United Kingdom", if you want it.
94 This was prompted by Ed Jordan <ed@chronos.net>
95
96 Added a new testsuite for handling this case, and extended the
97 existing test-suite to include testing of the case where
98 'uk' hasn't been defined as a valid code.
