GAAS / MIME-Base64-3.14 / Changes

2013-07-02   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.14

   Install to 'site' instead of 'perl' when perl version is 5.12+



2010-10-26   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.13

   The fix in v3.12 to try to preserve the SvUTF8 flag was buggy
   and actually managed to set the flag on strings that did not
   have it originally.



2010-10-25   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.12

   Don't change SvUTF8 flag on the strings encoded [RT#60105]

   Documentation tweaks



2010-10-24   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.11

   Provide encode_base64url and decode_base64url functions to process
   the base64 scheme for "URL applications".

   The decode_base64() does not issue warnings on suspect input data
   any more.



2010-10-11   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.10

   Provide functions to calculate the length of encoded and decoded
   base64 strings [RT#62404]



2010-01-25   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.09

   The Quoted-Printable encoder would sometimes output lines
   that were 77 characters long.  The max line length should be 76.
   [RT#53919]



2009-06-09   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.08

   Jarkko Hietaniemi (1):
      EBCDIC changes from core

   Nicholas Clark (1):
      Get rid of the PERL_CORE hacks



2005-11-30   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.07

   Use a Makefile.PL that is also suitable for core perl.



2005-11-26   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.06

   Documentation tweaks.

   use XSLoader; perl-5.6 now required.

   Some consting from bleadperl.

   Unbundled the {en,de}code-{base64,qp} utility scripts.
   These are now found in the MIME-Base64-Scripts package.



2004-09-20   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.05

   Steve Hay <steve.hay@uk.radan.com> found the warn test broken
   on Windows and provided a fix.



2004-09-18   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.04
   
   Fixed the bad-sv.t test script to actually contain the
   correct expected result as of v3.02.



2004-08-25   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.03

   Forgot to increment version number in MIME::QuotedPrint even
   if its interface changed in 3.02.  As a result you will now
   need to require MIME::QuotedPrint 3.03 if you want to ensure
   it provides the binmode interface.



2004-08-24   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.02

   The encode_qp() function now takes an optional third argument
   to select binary encoding mode.
   <https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=7456>

   The result of encode_qp($non_empty, $eol) will now always be
   $eol terminated.  If the string to encode does not end with "\n"
   then a soft line break is appended to the result.  As an example
   encode_qp("foo") used to be encoded as "foo", but now encodes as
   "foo=\n".



2004-03-29   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.01

   By compiling the extension with PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT we can
   make it slightly faster on a threaded perl.  No change on a
   regular perl.  Patch provided by Beau E. Cox <beau@beaucox.com>.

   Fixed missing ";" with assert.   Patch provided by
   Brendan O'Dea <bod@debian.org>.



2004-01-14   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 3.00

   Drop the pure Perl implementations of the encoders and
   decoders.  They are bloat that hides real problems in
   the XS implementations.  I will re-release them separately
   in the new MIME-Base64-Perl distribution.

   The 'gcc -Wall' fix in 2.22 broke support for perl5.005,
   as the isXDIGIT() macro is not available in that perl.
   This problem has now been fixed.



2004-01-08   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.23

   Documentation fixes by Paul Croome <Paul.Croome@softwareag.com>.



2004-01-08   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.22

   Fix 'gcc -Wall' complaints.



2003-10-09   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.21

   Documentation tweaks.

   Don't rely on SvEND(sv) == '\0' as discussed in the perl5-porters
   mailing list thread that starts with
   http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/2003-10/msg00258.html

   Should now pass test suite even without XS support.

   Perl v5.005 or better is now required.



2003-05-13   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.20

   decode_qp() recognize soft whitespace when there is whitespace
   between the '=' and the '\n'.



2003-05-13   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.19

   decode_qp() did eat up all trailing whitespace in the string decoded.
   Only whitespace in front of "\n" should go.

   Win32 fix for t/warn.t by Reini Urban <rurban@x-ray.at>.



2003-03-09   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.18

   Fix up INSTALLDIRS for perl-5.8 and newer.



2003-03-09   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.17

   Make it reliable to disable base64 decoding warnings by
   resetting $^W in recent perls.  Would really like to be
   able to do real lexical warnings but the current mechanism
   does not seems suitable for XS code.

   Passing "" as $eol to encode_qp() disable soft line
   breaks as well.

   Sync up with changes in bleadperl:
       - safer patchlevel.h include
       - bad cast



2003-01-05   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.16

   Fixed the encode_qp() line breaking code.  It sometimes
   made lines longer than 76 chars and it could even get into
   an infinite loop on certain inputs.



2003-01-03   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.15

   Fixed the XS based decode_qp() for strings where a =XX
   sequence was followed by digits.

   Faster encode_qp() for long strings with lots of chars
   that need escaping.

   The old_decode_base64() function introduced in 2.13
   was returning undef for empty input on olders perls.
   This problem has been fixed.



2003-01-01   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.14

   MIME::QuotedPrint functions now also implemented using XS
   which make them faster.  2-3 times faster when encoding line by
   line and as much as 200 times faster on long binary input.  There
   is probably some breakage on non-ASCII systems from this.

   The encode_qp() function now takes an $eol argument in the
   same way as encode_base64() does.

   Slight change in behaviour: the decode_qp() function now turns
   \r\n terminated lines into \n terminated lines.  This makes is
   more likely that encode_qp(decode_qp()) round-trip properly.

   Included {en,de}code-{base64,qp} utility scripts.



2002-12-27   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.13

   Sync up with bleadperl:
       - Documentation update
       - EBCDIC support
       - Whitespace tweaks
       - Improved Unicode support
       - Test suite tweaks

   Improved version of the old_{en,de}code_base64 functions
   contributed by Paul Szabo <psz@maths.usyd.edu.au>.



2001-02-23   Gisle Aas <gisle@ActiveState.com>

   Release 2.12

   Speed up pure perl base64 encoder/decoder by using join/map instead
   of while loop.  Contributed by Arno Beckmann <arno@gmx.de>

   Doc update contributed by Jerrad Pierce <belg4mit@CALLOWAY.MIT.EDU>

   Downgrade UTF8 strings before starting to encode.



1999-02-27   Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no>

   Release 2.11

   Fixed bogus "Premature end of base64 data" warning.  Bug spotted
   by Dwayne Jacques Fontenot.

   Workaround for Redhat shipping trial releases of perl.



1998-12-18   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.10

   A tweak that should make compilation with some old perl5.00[23]
   perls better.

   A cast that make some compilers more happy.



1998-11-13   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.09

   The 2.08 release did not compile with perl5.005_53, because
   all simple globals now need to be prefixed with "PL_".



1998-10-22   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.08

   Found another tweak to speed up decode_base64() with another 3%.

   Improved MIME::Base64 documentation a little.



1998-10-21   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.07

   Faster and smarter C implementation of the decode_base64()
   function.  The new decode_base64() was 25% faster when tested
   on Linux, i586, gcc -O2.



1998-07-15   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.06

   The decode_base64() implemented in pure perl will only carp
   (not croak) if length of data to decode is not a multiple 4.  This
   actually made 'make test' fail after 'rm Base64.xs'.



1998-01-27   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.05

   The decode_base64() would previously allocate a too short buffer for the
   result string when the trailing "==" padding was missing in the string to
   be decoded.

   The encode_base64() now allocate one byte less space in the result
   strings returned.



1997-12-02   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.04

   Documentation expanded a bit.



1997-07-10   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.03

   Decode_base64() doesn't croak on premature ended data any more.
   A warning is generated instead if running under -w.
   


1997-06-27   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.02

   QuotedPrint fix by Roderick Schertler <roderick@argon.org>:

      - Long lines were not broken unless they're at the beginning
        of the text

      - Lines near but not over 76 chars were broken when they
        shouldn't be



1997-06-13   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.01

   Base64.xs: Avoid type conversion warnings with some compilers

   Minor documentation updates



1997-04-24   Gisle Aas <aas@sn.no>

   Release 2.00, based on libwww-perl-5.08.
