5.019     2014-05-20 21:11:47-04:00 America/New_York
        - remove a very brief-lived attempt to double-decode

5.018     2014-05-20 21:07:04-04:00 America/New_York
        - attempt to return abstract-from-file as a string, rather than
          bytes, which can lead to weirdness (github issue #303)

        - dotfiles and dot-directories are now included in sharedirs
        - ModuleBuild and MakeMake should not re-build if it isn't needed
        - authordeps now better understands "perl" dep
        - munging of README is delayed to prevent unneeded work and
          complication
        - MANIFEST is now treated as a binary file
        - 'dzil setup' now warns that credentials are stored in the clear
        - MakeMaker should include fewer empty and useless hashrefs
        - Makefile.old is now pruned as cruft

5.016     2014-05-05 22:27:06-04:00 America/New_York
        - hint about [Encoding] plugin in encoding error message (David
          Golden)

5.015     2014-03-30 21:55:36-04:00 America/New_York
        - make it easier to have multiple PAUSE configs using UploadToCPAN's
          pause_cfg_dir option (thanks, David Golden)

5.014     2014-03-16 16:47:07+01:00 Europe/Paris
        - Added 'jobs' argument for 'dzil test' for parallel testing (thanks,
          David Golden!)
        - add default_jobs attribute to TestRunner role
        - fix the behavior of 'dzil add' with more than one file
          (thanks, Leon Timmermans!)

5.013     2014-02-08 17:08:16-05:00 America/New_York
        - META.json is now a UTF-8 file, rather than ASCII
        - document the use of filefinders in [PkgVersion], and remove
          filtering out of .t, .pod files; do skip non-text files, though
        - always load modules in "extra tests" like pod-coverage.t
        - PruneCruft also prunes ./fatlib
        - avoid being tricked by statements in __END__ section when looking for
          variable assignments
        - if "dzil install" fails due to exception, it is now propagated
        - provide a better error when terminal encoding can't be determined

5.012     2014-01-15 09:58:00-05:00 America/New_York
        - when handling a multi-line abstract, fold the lines on whitespace;
          previously, the newlines had been left in, which caused downstream
          warnings

5.011     2014-01-12 16:09:29-05:00 America/New_York
        - ->VERSION is again defined in the tester forms of Builder and Minter
        - remove a small obsolete code path from PkgVersion

5.010     2014-01-11 22:06:04-05:00 America/New_York
        - stop sharing a reference to cached PPI docs, which led to spooky
          action at a distance
        - PkgVersion no longer surrounds the new $VERSION assignment with a
          bare block
        - if there's a blank line after the package statement (and any number
          of comment-only lines), PkgVersion will use that for a $VERSION
          assignment, rather than insert a new line; this can be made mandatory
          with die_on_line_insertion

5.009     2014-01-07 20:21:17-05:00 America/New_York
        - include time offset by default in NextRelease
        - always pass PPI octets, not text

        - fix utterly broken `dzil run`

5.007     2013-12-27 20:50:45-05:00 America/New_York
        - add the ability to say "dzil run --no-build" to run a command without
          building inside the dist dir
          (in other words, no `perl Makefile.PL && make`)
        - Archive::Tar::Wrapper added as a recommended prereq
        - fix :ShareFiles (thanks, Christopher J. Madsen and Karen Etheridge)
        - new :AllFiles and :NoFiles filefinders (thanks, Karen Etheridge)
        - most files generated by dzil plugins now self-identify with comments

5.006     2013-11-06 09:21:12 America/New_York
        - add ->is_bytes to files; shortcut for ->encoding eq 'bytes'
          (thanks, David Golden)
        - AutoPrereqs will not try scanning binary files (thanks, David Golden)

5.005     2013-11-02 16:32:04 America/New_York
        - add --keep-build-dir to "dzil test" and "dzil install"

5.004     2013-11-02 09:59:18 America/New_York
        [THIS RELEASE MIGHT BREAK YOUR BUILD]

        [THIS RELEASE MIGHT BREAK YOUR BUILD]
        - perform encoding steps during listdeps

        [THIS RELEASE MIGHT BREAK YOUR BUILD]
        - all files now have content, encoded_content, and encoding attributes

        - tweak metafile generator to keep CPAN::Meta validator happy (thanks,
          David Golden)

4.300038  2013-09-08 09:18:34 America/New_York
        - add horrible hack to avoid generating non-UTF-8 META.yml; seriously,
          don't look at the code!  Thanks, David Golden, whose code was simple
          and probably much, much saner, but didn't cover as many cases as rjbs
          wanted to cover.

4.300037  2013-08-28 21:43:36 America/New_York

        - use Class::Load instead of Class::MOP

        - better error messages when a bundle can't be loaded by @Filter

        - switch (for now?) "dzil install" to use cpanm

        - PkgVersion won't rewrite file contents if nothing was changed

        - delay loading of CPAN::Uploader, and require a newer version to
          require HTTPS (thanks, Olivier Mengué!)

        - stacktrace removed from exception when a plugin's minimum version
          check fails (thanks, Karen Etheridge!)

        - add 'dzil listdeps --json', which lists all prerequisites broken up
          by phase and type, in readable JSON format (thanks, Karen Etheridge!)

        - improve errors when there's not enough configuration and no global
          config file can be found (thanks, Dimitar Petrov)

        - delay loading yet more libraries until needed (thanks, Olivier
          Mengué!)

4.300030  2013-01-30 22:25:27 America/New_York
        - listdeps --versions now sorts properly (thanks, Karen Etheridge!)

        - delay loading more libraries until needed (thanks, Olivier Mengué!)

        - excluded filenames in GatherDir were sometimes matched too fuzzily
          (thanks, Mike Doherty)

4.300029  2013-01-14 20:03:15 America/New_York
        - allow :version directive in root section to require a given version
          of Dist::Zilla

        - simply and speedify some of GatherDir (Thanks, Olivier Mengué!)

4.300028  2012-10-19 10:50:42 America/New_York
        - when picking modules to treat as "part of the dist," be more lax in
          understanding libraries under ./t:  ./t/lib/Foo.pm is now treated as
          providing t::lib::Foo, lib::Foo, and Foo

4.300027  2012-10-16 21:07:06 America/New_York
        - the "latest" symlink code broke Dist::Zilla on win32; fixed now!

4.300025  2012-10-07 23:02:33 America/New_York
        - add the LicenseProvider and NameProvider roles (thanks, Vyacheslav

          djgoku!)

4.300022  2012-09-05 08:35:27 America/New_York
        - do not detect an escaped "\$VERSION =" as an assignment to a variable
          (this is sort of a half-measure)

        - 'dzil run' also edits $PATH to include ExecDir directories (Karen
          Etheridge)

        - properly set the working directory when testing (thanks, Jesse
          Luehrs!)

4.300019  2012-06-20 15:36:01 America/New_York

          Etheridge!)

        - add more links in plugins documentation to help discoverability
          of other plugins.  (thanks, Olivier Mengué!)

4.300014  2012-04-05 12:46:33 America/New_York
        - added the CPANFile plugin to create "cpanfile" prereq format

        - stop emitting an empty line in authordeps output (thanks, Olivier
          Mengué!)

4.300013  2012-03-31 15:55:47 Europe/Paris
        - dzil test has a new option, --all, which is the equivalent of
          --release --automated --author.

4.300012  2012-03-30 14:31:56 Europe/Paris

        - do not claim that a dep is missing in "listdeps" when it is present
          with an undef $VERSION and we only require version 0 (reported by
          Matthew Horsfall)

4.300010  2012-03-15 21:38:58 America/New_York
        - The GatherDir::Template documentation has been improved
          (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - Depend on a more recent version of Config::MVP, which requires a fix
          in Class::Load to fix detection of plugin compilation errors on
          perl5.8.8 (see Class::Load Changes file for details.)  (Karen
          Etheridge)

4.300007  2012-02-02 22:23:05 America/New_York
        - Remove configs beginning with ':' from argument list before

          being passed to a plugin that had a strict constructor. (Karen
          Etheridge)

4.300006  2011-12-30 15:28:34 America/New_York
        - New methods dist_basename & archive_filename allow plugins
          to reliably get that information.  This makes TestRelease
          testable. (Thanks, Kent Fredric & Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - Your PAUSE password will now no be echoed if entered at the
          prompt, on most operating systems (Thanks, Mike Doherty!)

4.300005  2011-12-13 08:49:19 America/New_York
        - Prereqs now actually understands -relationship as documented
          in 4.300004.  Also, it throws an error if you give it a
          plugin name that does not specify a relationship (Thanks,
          Christopher J. Madsen!)

4.300004  2011-12-12 23:34:30 America/New_York
        - a new FileFinder plugin has been added, FileFinder::Filter
          (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - AutoPrereqs can now be told to determine configure_requires
          (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - the (lack of) order of check of authordeps is now a bit more
          predictible:
          - plugins declared with "; authordep" lines are loaded before others
          - inc:: plugins are checked first and in ASCII order
          (Thanks, Olivier Mengué!)

        - Many slow-to-load modules are now loaded opportunistically to improve
          startup time.  (Thanks Olivier Mengué and rjbs)

        - ShareDir documentation has been improved (thanks, Karen
          Etheridge)

        - Prereqs documentation has been improved

4.300003  2011-10-31 23:58:19 America/New_York
        - If no credentials are found on disk, UploadToCPAN will now prompt for
          credentials during the BeforeRelease phase, not during release
          (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - AutoPrereqs can now be told what scanners or extra_scanners args to
          pass to Perl::PrereqScanner (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - Prune perl prereqs out of BUILD_REQUIRES for EU::MM, and pick the
          highest required perl of either runtime or built requires.  (Thanks,
          Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - Test routines should now properly report the calling line for
          failures ($Test::Builder::Level is being set) (Thanks, Christopher J.
          Madsen!)

        - the is_filelist test assertion now works with objects that do the
          Dist::Zilla::Role::File role (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

        - a new FileFinder plugin has been added, FileFinder::ByName
          (Thanks, Christopher J. Madsen!)

4.300002  2011-09-22 09:43:45 America/New_York
        - fix a bug that does Weird Stuff when a 0b file exists (thanks,
          Christian Walde!)

4.300001  2011-09-19 15:46:18 America/New_York
        - Several improvements to how PPI is used should speed up the
          performance of Perl file munging and scanning.  The PPI role was
          added.  (Thanks, Dave Rolsky!)

        - We now use Archive::Tar::Wrapper if available, to speed up archive
          building.  (Thanks, Dave Rolsky!)

4.300000  2011-08-19 10:12:36 America/New_York
        - turn on Useqq option for Dumper, to get unicode string literals set
          properly in Makefile.PL and Build.PL without using utf8.pm

        - decode user input from Chrome::Term as UTF-8

        - during `dzil setup`, the config.ini file is now created with an added
          umask of 077 to avoid other users reading your PAUSE credentials

        - update almost all Moose code to use make_immutable and
          namespace::autoclean

4.200018  2011-08-18 11:13:03 America/New_York
        - correct Perl::PrereqScanner version requirement, which was too low

4.200017  2011-08-17 18:54:07 America/New_York
        - require and adapt to the new Perl::PrereqScanner, which does not
          prune out prereqs just because they're core and common

4.200016  2011-08-17 18:07:21 America/New_York
        - add options to exclude files from GatherDir (David Golden)

4.200015  2011-08-12 13:45:42 America/New_York
        - don't build the dist in a directory with -TRIAL in the name; this

          the Zilla assembler no longer provides a default zilla_class

4.101800  2010-06-29 10:29:38 America/New_York
          during dist minting, ModuleMaker occurs before FileGatherer

          ModuleBuild's module_build argument generation is now a method

          Dist::Zilla is now an abstract base class, basically

          * Dist::Zilla::Dist::Builder and ::Minter perform the real work

          * Dist::Zilla::Tester has been updated to work with these

          a very basic test for minting, now possible, has been added

          added prune_file method to Dist::Zilla to eliminate the need for
          altering the ->files arrayref directly

          added the ClearPrereqs plugin

          [Prereq] is now called [Prereqs], but [Prereq] will continue to work
          until v6 or v7 or so

4.101780  2010-06-27 14:30:55 America/New_York
          the Chrome role now requires three input methods: prompt_any_key,
          prompt_yn, and prompt_str

          Term and Test chrome now implement the required input methods

          ConfirmRelease now uses Chrome to prompt for input

4.101612  2010-06-10 12:12:00 America/New_York
          The PAUSE indexer will not be pleased. The 4.101610 PkgVersion
          changes are entirely reverted.

4.101611  2010-06-10 11:37:52 America/New_York
          added nonsensical $VERSION = $VERSION to appease the PAUSE indexer
          and other garbage code that evals a single line to guess at the
          version's value

4.101610  2010-06-10 10:01:37 America/New_York
          Fix Win32 \r\n emission. \r\n is only emitted now if its there in
          the original code. Tests included to make sure DZil doesn't sufer
          the problem under itself on windows. (Kent Fredric)

          Fix Tar permissions. (Kent Fredric, stolen from Module::Build)

          @Filter can now pass arguments along to the filter if you use a new
          dash-prefix config convention.  Consult its documentation for more
          information.  (Florian Ragwitz)

          PkgVersion now adds the version assignment to the same line as the
          package declaration to avoid altering line numbering.  (David
          Golden)

4.101582  2010-06-07 18:23:04 America/New_York
          improve tests to work with new CPAN::Meta

          a few improvements to use of type constraints in Zilla.pm

          some methods that were undocumented have been _-prefixed

          ModuleBuild now turns on recursive_test_files unconditionally

          the install_command argument to $zilla->install should now be an
          arrayref

          suppressed a stringifying-undef warning when using UploadToCPAN

          no longer try to compose an obsolete Dist::Zilla::Config role

4.101540  2010-06-03 23:52:52 America/New_York
          INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES:

          New global config system!

          Your ~/.dzil/config.ini is now broken.  Running `dzil` should tell
          you how to fix it.  Probably just replace [!release] with [%PAUSE]
          and delete everything else.  Hope that helps!

          Major refactoring of our use of Config::MVP; this probably won't
          break anything unless you wrote your own config readers, which I'm
          pretty sure you haven't done!

          config parameters beginning with a colon are not passed to plugins
          (this should not really affect anyone)

          OTHER CHANGES:

          plugins are now registered as soon as their config section has been
          read

          Dist::Zilla::Role::Stash has been added

          :version can now be passed as a config section value to require that
          the config's package be of the specified version

          reserved config property names (plugin_name, zilla) are now fatal
          during config read rather than plugin instantiation

          core license attrs will look in the %Rights stash for defaults

          `dzil new` will work if you have no configured profiles

          generated Makefile.PL no longer has trailing spaces (Florian Ragwitz)

          Document 'user' parameter for :FakeRelease (Kent Fredric)

          will probably work just fine on Win32 now!

3.101520  2010-06-01 11:50:16 America/New_York
          unixify all gathered filenames (Christian Walde)

          ModuleBuild can use a custom M::B class (David Golden, Dave Rolsky)

          PkgVersion ignores packages which have a newline between the package
          keyword and the package name (Dave Rolsky)

          PkgVersion and PodVersion

          Walde)

3.101390  2010-05-19 09:15:32 America/New_York
          INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES:

          the as_distmeta method of Prereqs is removed

          the ->prereq method on Dist::Zilla is gone (only prereqs remains)

          distmeta is managed by CPAN::Meta, which expects v2 spec data by
          default

          most Dist::Zilla::Types are gone, now in MooseX::Types::Perl

          OTHER CHANGES:

          META.json and META.yml are now produced by CPAN::Meta

          Dist::Zilla::Prereqs now proxies for CPAN::Meta::Prereqs

          MetaResources supports CPAN Meta Spec version 2, but still works
            with old-style resources as well (Dave Rolsky)

          quote filenames with spaces in MANIFEST (Dave Rolsky)

          Manifest plugin is now a FileGatherer, not an InstallTool

          attempted a fix for `dzil install` on Win32 (RT #57404)

2.101310  2010-05-11 09:02:45 America/New_York
          update_filename arg added to NextRelease
          `dzil new` can now be given a module name instead of dist name

            Smidsrød)

          the new `dzil new` does stuff, but is not documented

          add a "user" parameter to FakeRelease (David Golden)

          minor documentation improvements here and there

2.101170  2010-04-27 09:59:11 America/New_York
          fix a bug that broke dists with multiple - in their name

2.101160  2010-04-26 19:51:52 America/New_York
          `dzil new` now does nothing and says so

          dzil commands will not create a zilla object just for logging

          easy bundles will less often create names with @@ in them

2.101151  2010-04-25 23:40:28 America/New_York
          GatherDir and PruneCruft now both have verbose log output

          the App config system has been moved and made non-public; it was
          crazy and awful

          version numbers are not validated by version.pm, not my own dumb
          regex

          `dzil clean` no longer removes backup~ files (sorry, jq)

          TestRelease is better about picking a build location (Christopher J.

          better BUILD_REQUIRES treatment on ancient installer-side EU:MM
          (David Golden)

2.100990  2010-04-09 10:12:06 America/New_York
          fix Pod errors in @Classic (thanks Ævar)

2.100960  2010-04-06 17:00:26 America/New_York
          added @Basic, more suitable for basic use than @Classic
          delegate logging to the Dist::Zilla::App object
