146
1475.55_03 Sat Apr 6 21:57:01 EST 2002

1665.55_01 Thu Apr 4 23:58:06 EST 2002
167 [[ API Changes ]]
168 * Long deprecated INST_EXE completely removed.
169 - Removing TEST_LIBS constant (never seen in a stable MM anyway)
170 - Added $default argument to prefixify() for safer prefixification.
171
172 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
173 - $mm->{PERM_*} were not being set
174 - fixin() redundantly chmod'ing scripts. Let the Makefile do that.
175 - The above means MM_Unix will now compile cleanly under strict
176 * init_dirscan's search for Makefile.PL's will no longer look
177 inside a distdir.
178 * Fixed running tests when there are t/'s in subdirs.
179 - MM_DOS inheriting from MM_Unix instead of MM_Win32. DJGPP
180 appears to be unix-like (bleadperl@15650)
181 - Escaping constants with # in them so they're not confused as
182 make comments (bleadperl)
183 * ExtUtils::MM_Win95 didn't return a true value

190
191 [[ Doc Fixes ]]
192 - Documented INSTALLMAN*DIR == 'none' feature.

226 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
227 - Removed duplicate NAME macro definition
228 - Fixed makemakerdflt target for VMS
229 * bleadperl@11460 introduced a bug with recursive Makefile.PL's not
230 having '.' in @INC. PDL should build now.
231 * MANIFEST.SKIP only working on file names, not full relative paths.
232 Only since 5.51_01 (RT 413)
233 * make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 was busted by 5.50_01 (RT 423)
234 * Error messages from dying Makefile.PL's and hint files were
235 accidentally supressed in 5.48_04. Fixed.
236 * Makefile.PL's are supposed to be run in package main. 5.48_04
237 broke this. Fixed.
238 * Fixing installing on VMS.

243 - Fixed some SelfLoader warnings
244 * ExtUtils::MM_Win32 not subclassed off of ExtUtils::MM_Any properly
245 - Bug in local $ENV{FOO} was causing failures in MM_Win32 tests.
246 Compensating for the bug.
247 - $Config{prefixexp} is sometimes bad on ActivePerl, compensating
248 - Accidentally left htmlifypods tests in MM_Win32 tests
249
250 [[ Doc Changes ]]
251 - Expanding Known Good list
252 - Adding Known Programs to README
253
2545.51_01 Mon Mar 18 01:37:02 EST 2002
255 [[ API Changes ]]
256 - Removing xsubpp and typemap from the distribution. These are not
257 Perl version independent files and should not be upgraded.
258 - Removing ExtUtils::Embed. Version specific module and should
259 not be updated.
260 - Removing ExtUtils::Constant. Not directly tied to MakeMaker.
261 Will be distributed seperately by Nick Clark.
262
263 [[ New Features ]]
264 * realclean now deletes 'dist' directory.
265
266 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
267 * Fixing ExtUtils::Installed for VMS
268 * Fixed it so MakeMaker can build itself without needing an eariler
269 version installed
270 * Fixed ExtUtils::Installed so packlists work on VMS
271 * ExtUtils::MM_VMS test had a stupid typo that prevented most
272 of the tests from running.
273 - Fixing VMS so 'mmk' is always 'mmk all' (bleadperl 15218)
274 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->catfile was calling catdir
275 - Added Ken William's "speed up ExtUtils::Manifest" patch.
276 - Added Nick Clark's return value of manifest routines patch
277 (bleadperl@14978)
278 - Merging in bleadperl changes (14438, 14453, 14611, 14612, 14622,
279 14655, 14677, 14688, 14902, 15023, 15187, 15367)
280 - bleadperl change 15325 (VMS 'mmk all' hack) rejected.
281 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
282 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
283 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
284 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
285 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.
286 - Fixed test_via_harness() on VMS so it uses PERLRUN.
287 - ExtUtils::Manifest wrongly handling MANIFEST on VMS.
288 - ExtUtils::Manifest::maniskip broken due to misuse of /o on a regex.

2905.50_01 Mon Mar 4 23:44:48 EST 2002
291 [[ API Changes ]]
292 htmlifypods and all HTML targets have been removed. It didn't
293 work properly. A target for HTMLifying of docs will be
294 added sometime in the future (read: send a patch).
295 - Deprecated ROOTEXT variable removed (its been deprecated for
296 more than five years).
297 - Removed ExtUtils::Miniperl from the CPAN distribution. Can't
298 see how its useful outside the core.
299
300 [[ New Features ]]
301 * Emacs backup files (ie. *~) are no longer copied into blib
302 (this means you won't get Foo.pm~ accidentally installed anymore).
303 - prefixify() now returns if the prefixification worked or not.
304 - added the Perl patchlevel info to the description embedded in DLLs
305 (Ilya Zakharevich perl change 14810)
306
307 [[ Bug Fixes ]]
308 * 5.49_01 broke anything that depended on the MM class to be loaded
309 with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, like CPAN. Temporarily fixed.
310 * Many places wrongfully assume MM methods can be called as class
311 methods! Inside and outside of MakeMaker.
312 * DOS now acts like Win32 instead of Unix. This should be less wrong.
313 - Netware tweak from Ananth Kesari (perl change 14780)
314
315 [[ Doc Changes ]]
316 * made the docs about the behavior of PREFIX a bit more vague
317 reflecting its odd behavior.
318 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
319 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
320 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
321
322 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
323 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
324 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
325 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
326 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
327 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
328 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
329 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
330 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
331 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.
332
3335.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
334 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
335 chdir without breaking @INC.
336 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
337 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
338 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
339 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
340 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
341 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
342
343 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
344 change.
345 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
346 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
347 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
348 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
349 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
350 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
351 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
352 backporting
353 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
354 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
355 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
356 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
357 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
358 @MM::ISA does that itself.
359 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
360 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
361 explicitly required MM_Unix.
362 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
363 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
364 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
365 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
366 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
367 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
368 to EU::MM.
369 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
370
3715.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002

3815.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002

383 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
384 work on Win32/5.6.1.
385 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
386 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
387 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
388 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
389 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
390 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
391
3925.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002

397 * Backported to 5.6.1
398 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
399 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
400 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
401 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
