version 0.009; 2015-03-20

  * in test of require for version checking, work around [perl #124135]
    which was introduced in Perl 5.21.4

version 0.008; 2015-03-20

  * bugfix: don't localise hints around a version-number require, so that
    "use v5.10.0" can have its intentional effect of setting feature flags

  * bugfix: in pure Perl implementation, use a ($) prototype on
    CORE::GLOBAL::require, so that the argument expression will be in
    the correct context

  * better error message for refusing to use pure Perl implementation
    on Perl 5.9.4 to 5.10.0

  * document that the pure Perl implementation breaks the use of the
    implicit $_ parameter with require

  * in swash test, don't fail if utf8.pm was loaded unexpectedly early,
    as has been seen to happen on some systems

  * test idempotence

  * fix test for thread safety, which risked false negatives

  * when preemptively loading Carp and Carp::Heavy, avoid the Perl core
    bug regarding the context applied to file scope of required modules,
    in case of future versions of those modules becoming vulnerable and
    running on an old Perl

  * declare correct version for Test::More dependency

  * typo fix in documentation

  * typo fix in a comment

version 0.007; 2012-02-11

  * be thread-safe, by mutex control on op check hooking

  * in pure Perl implementation, avoid putting extra eval stack frames
    around the require, to avoid unnecessary complication of exception
    handling; this can't be done on Perls 5.9.4 to 5.10.0, so don't
    allow use of the pure Perl implementation on those Perls

  * revise documentation to suggest loading this module earlier

  * document the relevant changes to the Perl core in more detail

  * on Perl versions where the pure Perl implementation can't work,
    dynamically declare requirement for XS infrastructure in Build.PL

  * refine threshold for ability to correctly override require from
    5.8.0 to 5.7.2

  * revise minimum required Perl version down from 5.6.1 to 5.6.0

  * test that modules see the correct context at file scope

  * test that module return values are handled correctly

  * test that the module doesn't generate warnings

  * in pure Perl implementation, fix handling of the variable that
    previously needed to be "our"

  * rearrange and better comment the treatment of lexical warnings in
    the Perl code

version 0.006; 2011-11-20

  * bugfix: avoid loading warnings.pm and leaving its delayed requires
    of Carp.pm susceptible to hint leakage, which was causing trouble
    on some Perls

  * skip swash test on Perl 5.6, where swash loading appears to be broken
    by loading Test::More or anything else useful

  * remove bogus tests that cause false failures on Perl 5.15.5

  * in Build.PL, declare incompatibility with pre-0.19
    B::Hooks::OP::Check, which doesn't play nicely around op check hooking

  * comment why a variable surprisingly needs to be "our"

  * convert .cvsignore to .gitignore

version 0.005; 2011-07-25

  * bugfix: work around core bug [perl #73174] affecting Unicode swash
    loading, and apply entire workaround arrangement to 5.11.{0..5}
    where [perl #73174] exists but [perl #68590] does not

  * correct dynamic_config setting to 0

  * include META.json in distribution

  * add MYMETA.json to .cvsignore

version 0.004; 2010-11-21

  * bugfix: don't attempt to use XS version of the workaround on Win32,
    where it can't work properly due to linker restriction on access to
    core symbols

  * only define PERL_CORE for compilation on Perl versions where the
    bug workaround (and thus interference with core-private stuff)
    is actually necessary

  * in XS, use PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT for efficiency

  * in XS, declare "PROTOTYPES: DISABLE" to prevent automatic generation
    of unintended prototypes

  * in XS, provide a reserve definition of croak, so that the Perl_croak
    circumlocution is avoided even with PERL_CORE defined

  * in XS, give symbolic names to the Perl version thresholds

  * jump through hoops to avoid compiler warnings

  * use full stricture in test suite

  * also test POD coverage of pure Perl implementation

  * in t/setup_pp.pl, avoid a warning that occurs if XSLoader::load()
    is given no arguments, which is now a valid usage

  * in Build.PL, explicitly set needs_compiler to avoid bogus
    auto-dependency on ExtUtils::CBuilder

  * in Build.PL, complete declaration of configure-time requirements

version 0.003; 2010-04-10

  * bugfix: in pure-Perl implementation, make sure ambient package (from
    which require is invoked) is passed on correctly to the code in the
    required file, on those Perls where it is so inherited

  * in XS, use macros to avoid explicit passing of aTHX, in the manner
    of the core

  * in XS, avoid using "class" as a variable name, for compatibility
    with C++ compilers

  * make all numeric comparisons against $] stringify it first, to avoid
    architecture-dependent problems with floating point rounding giving
    it an unexpected numeric value

  * in Build.PL, explicitly declare configure-time requirements

  * add MYMETA.yml to .cvsignore

version 0.002; 2009-10-21

  * generate a more normal-looking op tree, that doesn't crash B::Deparse

  * don't apply the workaround on Perl 5.11.0 or later, where the bug
    has been fixed

  * in t/seal.t, test that cop_hints_hash is properly handled

  * check for required Perl version at runtime

version 0.001; 2009-09-26

  * bugfix: die cleanly if the pure-Perl implementation is needed but
    won't work (which occurs on pre-5.8 perls)

  * bugfix: avoid undesired warning from pure-Perl implementation if
    require has already been overridden via CORE::GLOBAL::require

  * in tests, set HINT_LOCALIZE_HH where appropriate, to avoid false
    test failures on pre-5.10 perls

  * test that the module plays nicely with code that overrides require
    via CORE::GLOBAL::require

version 0.000; 2009-09-22

  * initial released version
