1.67      2019-04-22 07:55:59 -0400
  - Production release identical to 1.66_01

1.66_01   2019-04-21 13:46:14 -0400
  - Fix to Fetch::CurlCommand plugin.  It's handling of URLs with trailing slash (/)
    wasn't quite right.  (gh#112, gh#113)

1.65      2019-04-11 09:15:37 -0400
  - Further improvements with ExtUtils::Depends compatability (gh#107, gh#109).
  - Improved documentation (gh#106).
  - Updated spec for ALIEN_INSTALL_TYPE.  When set, Alien consumers that
    require an opt-in for using an Alien may use the fact that this environment

1.64_01   2019-04-10 13:06:45 -0400
  - Improved compatability with ExtUtils::Depends (gh#107, gh#108).

1.63      2019-04-08 17:19:03 -0400
  - Documentation improvements
  - Fixed bug in Test::Alien::Build alienfile_skip_if_missing_prereqs
    where subtest / test was always skipped regardless of requirements.
    It now (correctly) only skips if there are missing requirements.

1.62      2019-03-27 11:34:00 -0400
  - Production release identical to 1.61_01

1.61_01   2019-03-25 15:35:06 -0400

1.60      2019-03-01 03:16:23 -0500
  - Documentation improvemens.  (gh#50, gh#84).

1.59_01   2019-02-27 21:40:24 -0500
  - Fix test fail for download negotiation plugin introduced in 1.58_01
    which was expressed on systems without curl installed.

1.58_01   2019-02-27 12:50:20 -0500
  - Prefer Fetch::CurlCommand over Fetch::HTTPTiny for https when:
     * Net::SSLeay and IO::Socket::SSL are not installed
     * AND curl is installed
     * AND curl supports https
    This makes AB more reliable on platforms like OS X when openssl
    is broken without a third party package system like homebrew,
    and on older Perls like 5.8.x where Net::SSLeay frequently does
    not install or pass tests.
    The existing behavior of prefer Fetch::HTTPTiny when:
     * Net::SSLeay and IO::Socket::SSL are already installed
     * OR the URL is http
     * OR curl is not already installed
    is still in effect. (gh#93, gh#94)

1.57_01   2019-02-26 08:52:34 -0500
  - Test unzip command before blindly using it (tests were already
    being made for tarballs) (gh#90)

1.56_01   2019-02-24 14:09:23 -0500
  - Prefer Alien::unzip over Archive::Zip.  The latter turns out to be broken
    on one platform or another for much of the time.  (gh#74, gh#89).

1.55      2019-02-24 11:35:29 -0500
  - Production release identical to 1.54_01

1.54_01   2019-02-21 15:49:28 -0500

    to Alien::Base (leonerd++ gh#75, gh#77)

1.53_01   2019-02-21 11:35:47 -0500
  - Prefer PkgConfig::PP on MSWin32 where it is more reliable. (gh#82, gh#85)
  - Test tar command before blindly using it (tests were already
    being made for compressed tars "tar.gz", "tar.xz", etc) (gh#86, gh#87)
  - Tweaks to test suite to hopefully accommodate a haiku install (gh#81)
  - Add atleast_version, exact_version and max_version properties for
    pkg-config plugins (gh#78, gh#79)

1.52      2019-02-09 05:45:12 -0500
  - Use $alien->libs -L flags to help find system dynamic libs.

1.51      2019-01-19 14:23:23 -0500

    for cmake projects using GNUInstallDirs on platforms that default to
    something other than lib.

1.50      2019-01-16 12:55:08 -0500
  - Removed temp testing files unintentionally included in the previous
    release.
  - Require ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.64, for Alien::Build::MM, which can
    sometimes have its BUILD_REQUIRES or TEST_REQUIRES overridden by
    Dist::Zilla otherwise.

1.49      2018-11-04 15:22:40 -0500
  - Added Alien::Build::Plugin::Test::Mock
  - Added alienfile_skip_if_missing_prereqs function to Test::Alien::Build

  - Production release identical to 1.45_01

1.45_01   2018-06-24 08:13:08 -0400

    Alien::Role::Alt into core, making that role now obsolete.
  - Add alt_names and alt_exists methods to Alien::Base.  This was a
    capability missing from Alien::Role::Alt
  - Fix bug in Alien::Build::MM where 'make alien_prop_runtime' printed
    install instead of runtime properties

1.44_01   2018-06-20 06:36:57 -0600

  - Fix Test::Alien bug where -L could be placed after directories specified in %Config
    (this was already handled correctly by Alien::Base::Wrapper).
  - Remove cpp and C++ options for xs_ok (I don't believe these were used in practice
    and were issuing deprecation warnings for a while).
  - A number of documentation errors have been fixed (jjatria++ leto++)

1.25      2017-10-09 08:57:34 -0400
