2 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
3 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
4 alter your manifest.
5 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
6 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
7 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
8 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
9 around 6.06_01.
10 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
11 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
12 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
13 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
14 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
15 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
16 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

19 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
20 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
21 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
22 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
23 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
24 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
25 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
26 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
27 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
28 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
29 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
30 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
31 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
32 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
33 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
34 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
35 sometimes don't get installed.
36 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
37 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
38 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
39 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
40
416.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
42 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
43 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
44 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
45 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
46 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
47 Fixed.
48 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
49 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
50 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
51 (Stas Bekman)
52 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
53 (Craig Berry)
54 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
55 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
56 miserably.
57 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
58
596.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
60 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
61 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
62 Just on OS/2.
63
646.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
65 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
66 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
67 to skip installing a file.
68 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
69 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
70 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
71 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
72 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
73 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
74 removed. No longer relevent.
75 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
76 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
77 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
78 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
79 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
80 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
81 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
82 properly before. (Craig Berry)
83 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
84 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
85 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
86 reading.
87 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
88 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
89 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
90 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
91 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
92
93# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
94# so much change between 6.05 and now.

97 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
98 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
99 warning because of this.
100 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
101 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
102 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
103 Worked around.
104 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
105 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
106
1076.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
108 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
109 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
110 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
111 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
112 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
113 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
114 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
115 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
116 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
117 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
118 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
119 Missing since 5.6.1.
120 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
121 command line lengths.
122 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
123 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
124 eof() not honor tied handles.
125 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
126 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
127
1286.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
129 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
130 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
131 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
132 to think modules weren't installed.
133 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
134 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
135 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
136 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
137 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
138 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
139 warn_if_old_packlist().
140 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
141 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
142 in the first place.
143 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
144 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
145 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
146 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
147 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
148 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
149 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
150 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
151 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
152 expansion
153 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
154 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
155 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
156 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
157 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
158 MakeMaker.
159 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
160 - Added compile & POD test
161 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
162 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
163 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
164 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
165 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
166 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
167 [perl #21526]
168
1696.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
170 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
171 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
172 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
173 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
174 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
175 fixpath() work again.
176
1776.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
178 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
179 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
180 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
181 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
182 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
183 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
184 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
185 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
186 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
187 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
188 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
189 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
190 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
191 using that.
192 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
193 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
194 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
195 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
196 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
197 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
198 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
199 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
200 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
201 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
202 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
203 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
204 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
205 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
206 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
207 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
208 by default.
209 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
210 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
211 - Improved DISTNAME docs
212 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
213 * Documented dist()
214 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
215 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
216 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
217 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
218 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
219 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
220 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
221 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
222 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
223 of the clean target.
224 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
225 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
226 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
227 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
228 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
229 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
230 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
231 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
232 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
233 target.
234 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
235 they come first.
236 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
237 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
238 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
239 init_platform().
240 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
241 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
242 init_VERSION().
243 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
244 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
245
246 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
247 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
248 init_others() to init_platform()
249 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
250 init_platform()
251 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
252 constants() to init_platform()
253
254 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
255 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
256 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
257 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
258 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
259 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
260 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
261 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
262 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
263
264 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
265 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
266 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
267 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
268 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
269 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
270 init_VERSION
271 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
272 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
273 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
274
275 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
276 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
277 Everything else was redundant.
278
279 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
280 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
281 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
282 into init_linker().
283 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
284 MM_VMS_VERSION.
285 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
286 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
287 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
288 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
289 overrides.
290 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
291 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
292 unportable part of the realclean target.
293 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
294 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
295 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
296 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
297 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
298 is explicitly set to empty.
299 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
300 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
301 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
302 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
303 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
304 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
305 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
306 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
307 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
308 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
309 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
310 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
311 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
312 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
313 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
314 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
315 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
316 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
317 dont_execute arguments.
318 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
319 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
320 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
321 commands.
322 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
323 be pointless.
324 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
325 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
326 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
327 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
328
3296.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
330 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
331 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
332
3336.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
334 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
335 right.
336 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
337 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
338 - Documented the LD flag.
339 * Documented prompt()
340 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
341 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
342 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
343 (bleadperl 17488)
344 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
345 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
346 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
347 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
348 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
349 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
350 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
351 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
352 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
353 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
354 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)
355

376 post_initialize() now used, DEFINE & INC work with relative paths,
377 removed dead hybrid method/function call code.
378 * WriteMakefile now a bit more tolerant of wrong arguments, it will
379 warn and try to soldier on rather than just vomiting.
380 - Netware whitespace nits (bleadperl@16811)
381 - Netware Perl version number tag when building dynamic libraries
382 needs to match the current perl version instead of being hard coded
383 (a mutation of bleadperl@16851)
384 - OS/2 bug in TEST_F target found by John Poltorak (bleadperl@16839)

393 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command so it groks % shell wildcard on VMS.
394 [RT 625]
395 - MM now depends on Test::Harness 2.00 on VMS else tests with -T
396 won't work, command line too long.

636 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
637 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
638 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.

702 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
703 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
704 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
705 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
706 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
707 backporting
708 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
709 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
710 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
711 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
712 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
713 @MM::ISA does that itself.
714 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
715 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
716 explicitly required MM_Unix.
717 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
718 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
719 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
720 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
721 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
722 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
723 to EU::MM.
