61
625.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

67 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
68 - Craig Berry fixed install on VMS (again, I munged the last patch)
69 - MakeMaker might not be recognizing it's in PERL_SRC on Win32.
70 Made safer.
71 - For some reason MM_VMS was using $Config{arch} instead of
72 $Config{archname}
73 - Fix (well, hack) for creating ABSPERL on VMS.
5c161494

815.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
82 [[ API Changes ]]
83 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
84 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
85 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
86
87 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
88 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
89 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
90 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
91 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
92 inside a distdir.
93 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
94 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
95 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
96 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
97 make comments (bleadperl)
98 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value
99 - Fixing disttest when perl is a relative path.
100 * Fixed disttest & tests in subdirs on Win95
101 - Fixed recursive Makefile.PL scan on VMS so it skips the distdir
102 - Fixed a bug when an alternative MAKEFILE is specified and you're
103 using something other than a Makefile.PL (RT 444)
104 - Quieting uninit warning when there are no tests.
105
106 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
107 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.
108
109 [[ Test Fixes ]]
110 - Paul Green's which_perl patch to build a proper Perl on systems
111 that use command extensions.
112 - basic.t's Makefile.PL PREFIX call wasn't properly quoted for VMS
113 (Craig Berry)
114 - little initialization glitch in MM_Win32.t
115
116 [[ Internals ]]
117 - INST_* constants moved to init_INST
118 - INSTALL* constants moved to inst_INSTALL
119 * Internal warning supression removed.

1405.53_01 Fri Mar 29 00:13:02 EST 2002
141 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
142 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
143 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
144 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
145 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
146 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
147 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
148 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
149 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
150 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
151 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
152 broke this. Fixed.
153 * Fixing installing on VMS.
154
1555.52_01 Tue Mar 26 00:24:26 EST 2002
156 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
157 * ActivePerl 5.6.1/build 631 now 100%
158 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
159 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
160 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
161 Compensating for the bug.
162 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
163 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
164
165 [[ Doc Changes ]]
166 - Expanding Known Good list
167 - Adding Known Programs to README
168
1695.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
170 [[ API Changes ]]
171 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
172 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
173 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
174 not be updated.
175 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
176 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
177
178 [[ New Features ]]
179 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
180
181 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
182 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
183 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
184 version installed
185 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
186 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
187 of the tests from running.
188 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
189 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
190 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
191 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
192 (bleadperl@14978)
193 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
194 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
195 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
196 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
197 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
198 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
199 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
200 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
201 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
202 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
203 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.
204
2055.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
206 [[ API Changes ]]
207 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
208 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
209 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
210 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
211 more than five years).
212 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
213 see how its useful outside the core.
214
215 [[ New Features ]]
216 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
217 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
218 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
219 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
220 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
221
222 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
223 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
224 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
225 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
226 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
227 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
228 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
229
230 [[ Doc Changes ]]
231 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
232 reflecting its odd behavior.
233 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
234 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
235 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
236
237 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
238 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
239 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
240 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
241 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
242 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
243 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
244 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
245 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
246 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
247
2485.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
249 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
250 chdir without breaking @INC.
251 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
252 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
253 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
254 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
255 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
256 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
257
258 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
259 change.
260 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
261 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
262 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
263 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
264 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
265 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
266 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
267 backporting
268 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
269 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
270 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
271 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
272 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
273 @MM::ISA does that itself.
274 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
275 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
276 explicitly required MM_Unix.
277 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
278 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
279 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
280 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
281 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
282 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
283 to EU::MM.
284 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
285
2865.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
287 - No longer requiring Test::More
288 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 289 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
290 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
291 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
292 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
293 No longer obsolete
294 - Little test fixes

2965.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
297 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
298 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
299 work on Win32/5.6.1.
300 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
301 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
302 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
303 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
304 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
305 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
306
3075.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
308 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

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