0.048 2014-03-29
        - no code changes from 0.047
        - update bugtracker and repo links

0.047 2013-09-25
        [TRIAL RELEASE]
        - handle system() returning == 0xFF00 on Win32
        - use Win32::ShellQuote for shell quoting on Win32

0.046 2013-06-11
        - replace a die with a croak (thanks, Mike Doherty)
        - typo fixes in documentation (thanks, David Steinbrunner)

0.045 2011-12-23
        - skip a test that tickles an OpenBSD bug and hangs the process (thanks,
          BinGOs)

0.044 2010-08-22
        - ignore user-defined __DIE__ handler in _type (Jeff Lavallee)
        - Added test for __DIE__ handler behavior

0.043	2009-05-30
	      - No code changes
	      - add repository location to META.yml
	      - avoid hand-written META.yml by using META_MERGE

0.042	2008-08-09
	      - No code changes
	      - Rewrite a test in t/utf8.t that runs afoul of a misfeature
	        in Perl 5.8.0 (turn on ":utf8" by default on all filehandles
	        when running in a UTF8 locale; fixed since 5.8.1)

0.041	2008-08-03
	      - Handle arbitrary binmode() layers in "binmode_*" options; for
	        backward compatibility, any true option that doesn't start
	        with ":" is treated as ":raw"
	      - NOTE: This does work for the built-in layers, e.g. ":utf8",
	        but all bets are off for fancier stuff like ":via(...)" .
	      - Add an option "return_if_system_error" that causes run3()
	        to refrain from throwing an exception when system() returns -1
	        (cf. RT 14272).

0.040	2007-12-26
	      - major rewrite of pod:
	      - describe all possible forms of redirectors
	      - list available options
	      - explain how run3() works
	      - fix #31343 by using the three argument form of open() for files;
	        unfortunately that isn't available before Perl 5.6.0,
	        hence "use 5.006_00"; also use lexical filehandles everywhere
	      - implement options append_{stdout,stderr}; add test cases
	      - edit META.yml so that the profiling modules IPC::Run3::Prof*
	        (which aren't of general use) won't show on CPAN

0.039	2007-11-01
        - avoid some warnings while testing profiler (thanks, SCOP)

0.038	2007-10-08
        - remove use warnings for 5.005 compat (thanks, David Golden)

0.037	2006-09-19
        - document license more clearly for META.yml

0.036	2006-09-19
        - document more clearly the return value of run3

0.035	2006-07-27
        - remove requirement for Test::Pod and ::Coverage just to build

0.034	2005-12-12
	      - skip t/fork.t on MSWin32 (and Cygwin):
	          Win32 threads (and fork() is emulated via threads) in the
	          same process share the same STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR, hence
	          the method used by run3() (redirect STD* and then call system())
	          doesn't work here and IO crossover is to be expected -
	          a possible alternative on Win32 would be to use CreateProcess
	          which lets you explicitly specify three filehandles for the
	          new process' STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR; however Win32::Process::Create()
	          (from the libwin32 CPAN distribution) as omitted these
	          parameters from the Perl wrapper
	      - add a note to the documentation about the problems with
	          concurrent calls to run3 in a threaded environment
	          (incl. fork() on Win32)
	      - make sure all tests run with warnings on

0.033	2005-11-15
	      - make documentation in IPC/Run3/ProfReporter.pm comply with
	        older versions of Pod::Coverage (fixes bug #15749)
	      - new version of t/fork.t that will work on Windows
	        (there are still unresolved issues on Cygwin)
	      - switch t/fd_leak.t to use Test::More and relax file descriptor check
	        to "same or fewer fd's after the call to run3 than before",
	        because Darwin 7.2 sometimes actually report fewer fd's
	        (fixes bug #15741)
	      - extricated some dead code from IPC/Run3.pm that
	        resulted in 6 unused file descriptors
	      - fix call to binmode missing a filehandle in IPC/Run3.pm
          fix warnings in test scripts

0.032	2005-10-19
        - comaint granted to RSCHUPP (thanks, barry!)
        - fix bug #15003 "Data corruption with fork when both parent
          and child use run3":
        - purge %fh_cache when we detect that a fork has happened
        - add t/fork.t to detect "crossover" between child processes
        - fix (and test) only works on Unix, Windows has more problems
          with run3 from a forked (pseudo) process
        - fix prereq - should specify 0 (not 1) if any version will do
	        added tests for redirection to/from filehandles to t/IPC-Run3.t

0.031   2005-09-27

0.020   2005-07-12 08:39:00 EST
        - maintenance assumed (temporarily) by RJBS
        - removed inexplicable and mysterious MY::libscan from Makefile.PL
        - call import on ::PProf when profiling (argh!)
        - add Time::HiRes prereq
        - add Win32 prereq on Win32
        - add () to gettimeofday call to make debugger happy
        - properly handle redirection to filehandle
        - properly handle failure to start program
