Revision history for Mac-PropertyList-SAX 0.01 2006-06-18T17:25 First version, released on an unsuspecting world. 0.02 2006-06-19T11:01 Minor changes, including copy-and-paste error fixes and actually including the plist files for the tests in the MANIFEST so the whole package gets built. 0.03 2006-06-19T11:16 DOCTYPE declarations in test files were pointing to local paths that do not exist on a non-Macintosh system; I changed these local paths to http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd. This points out a (perhaps unfortunate) consequence of using a real XML parser: it (at least by default) needs access to the DTDs, which are usually on the Internet. 0.04 2006-07-10T12:35 Itty-bitty little changes, including fixing VERSION in pod, removing an unused state enumeration, and fixing tabs and dates in Changes. 0.05 2006-07-20T12:14 Added pod-coverage test for higher Kwalitee; removed test on XML version 0.9, which is not supported by some XML parsers (removing a test doesn't seem right, but I can't guarantee that the parser I get will support XML 0.9, since I'm using XML::SAX::ParserFactory). 0.06 2007-03-26T22:00 Updated META.yml to 1.2 spec; fixed version discrepancy between pm and META.yml; added license 'perl' to META.yml. 0.07 2007-03-27T22:49 Implement create_from_hash and create_from_array (generically as create_from_ref) recursively, providing functionality that Mac::PropertyList did not have. 0.08 2007-03-27T23:00 Fix incorrect Changes date; include missing test for create_from_ref. 0.09 2007-03-27T23:40 I don't really like releasing *this* much ... removed forgotten and unnecessary stringification overload of Mac::PropertyList::Scalar that caused PAUSE-indexer errors. 0.50 2007-04-06T18:46 Fixed various small bugs, improved quality of plist-generation code, reduced code duplication, updated tests, reformatted code, matched Mac::PropertyList behavior better, updated exports, clarified POD, and marked as 0.50 (signifiying a beta considered stable, nearly ready for production). 0.60 2007-04-06T22:18 Changed behavior with respect to Mac::PropertyList -- leading and trailing whitespace in values is no longer stripped. Updated t/write.t to test this as a side-effect of successive deserialization and reserialization. This behavior may need to be revisited, since certain datatypes like "integer" may benefit from whitespace modifications. As a result of these modifications, this module no longer depends on Text::Trim. See CAVEATS in the POD for more details. 0.61 2007-04-07T12:55 Finally fixed the lack of LICENSE; updated old code like 'use vars' to use newer Perl idioms; inlined functions that due to recent refactoring were being called only once; reformatted code. Fixed dependency lists, which were incorrect because I was modifying META.yml (generated) instead of Makefile.PL. No behavioral changes. 0.62 2007-08-18T11:21 Fixed typographical errors; unified tabbing in Changes; subclassed Mac::PropertyList:: types to allow setting useful overloads for them. 0.63 2007-08-24T22:50 Oops. Version 0.62 could break things that check ->isa on Mac::PropertyList objects, and the new objects weren't being used consistently anyway. I think I've got it now. 0.64 2007-11-24T19:34 No functionality changes. Switched to Module::Install for installation; fixed a typo; made POD more concise. 0.70 2007-12-06T12:11 Rewrote POD for clarity and conciseness; added some function aliases; potentially improved performance by ceasing to naively read in entire file before starting a parse; made boolean objects descendants of Object::MultiType (a new dependency) for ease of use in a boolean context while maintaining backward compatibility and stringification; removed dependence on unnecessary module UNIVERSAL::isa. Added t/overload.t, which checks boolean and stringification overloads. 0.80 2008-07-19T02:06 Removed globally-pollutive dependency on Alias.pm; addressed roundtripping of XML entities (thanks to Jon Connell) and added tests. 0.81 2008-07-19T09:35 Removed false dependency on Alias.pm in Makefile.PL. 0.82 2008-08-21T15:14 create_from_ref() entity serialization was addressed in 0.80, but plist_as_string() still output invalid XML. Thanks goes again to Jon Connell. 0.83 2008-09-26T09:56 XML::SAX::ParserFactory might not return an XML-capable parser, so start depending on XML::SAX::Expat and let the user change that dependency at runtime with an environment variable if necessary. 0.84 2008-11-23T11:54 Require LWP for test, since XML::Parser needs to fetch entity definitions from the web. 0.85 2010-12-04T11:10 Integrate bug fix from Bion Pohl / ingz-inc.com. Thanks ! 0.86 2017-06-24T13:23-07:00 Delegate binary plist handling to Mac::PropertyList, resolving RT #99072.
