2 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
3 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
4 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
5 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
6 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
7 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
8 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
9 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
10 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
11 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
12 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
13 broke this. Fixed.
14 * Fixing installing on VMS.

165.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
17 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
18 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
19 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
20 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
21 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
22 Compensating for the bug.
23 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
24 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
25
26 [[ Doc Changes ]]
27 - Expanding Known Good list
28 - Adding Known Programs to README

305.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
31 [[ API Changes ]]
32 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
33 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
34 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
35 not be updated.
36 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
37 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
38
39 [[ New Features ]]
40 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
41
42 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
43 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
44 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
45 version installed
46 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
47 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
48 of the tests from running.
49 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
50 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
51 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
52 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
53 (bleadperl@14978)
54 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
55 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
56 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
57 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
58 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
59 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
60 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
61 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
62 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
63 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
64 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
65
665.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
67 [[ API Changes ]]
68 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
69 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
70 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
71 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
72 more than five years).
73 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
74 see how its useful outside the core.
75
76 [[ New Features ]]
77 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
78 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
79 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
80 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
81 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
82
83 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
84 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
85 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
86 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
87 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
88 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
89 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
90
91 [[ Doc Changes ]]
92 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
93 reflecting its odd behavior.
94 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
95 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
96 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
97
98 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
99 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
100 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
101 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
102 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
103 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
104 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
105 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
106 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
107 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
108
1095.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
110 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
111 chdir without breaking @INC.
112 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
113 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
114 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
115 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
116 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
117 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
118
119 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
120 change.
121 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
122 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
123 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
124 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
125 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
126 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
127 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
128 backporting
129 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
130 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
131 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
132 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
133 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
134 @MM::ISA does that itself.
135 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
136 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
137 explicitly required MM_Unix.
138 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
139 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
140 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
141 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
142 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
143 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
144 to EU::MM.
145 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
146
1475.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
148 - No longer requiring Test::More
149 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
150 - Stripped out $Revision: 1.25 $ based $VERSIONs.
151 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
152 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
153 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
154 No longer obsolete
155 - Little test fixes

1575.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
158 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
159 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
160 work on Win32/5.6.1.
161 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
162 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
163 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
164 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
165 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
166 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
167
1685.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
169 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.
170
1715.48_01 Wed Jan 16 15:10:28 EST 200
172 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
173 * Backported to 5.6.1
174 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
175 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
176 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
177 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
