      [github #60]

20121025.2315_001    Thu Oct 25 23:15:20 PDT 2012
    New Features

    Incompatible Changes

    New Features
    * Now checking if there are too many arguments. [github #23]
    * Run-time errors are now class methods, so subclasses can override them.
    * Method::Signatures::Modifiers allows you to use Method::Signatures
      with MooseX::Declare and apply method modifiers like before, after
      and around. [Buddy Burden] [github #14]
    * compile_at_BEGIN option controls if "method" and "func" are compiled
      like normal statements or early like "sub". [github #8]

    Bug Fixes
    * Now depending on a version of Devel::Declare that works with
      5.13 and up. [github #10]
    * Now depending on a known good version of Mouse. [github #17]
    * Improved error messages reporting from the right position in the
      user's code. [Buddy Burden]
    * Comments in the signature fixed. [Buddy Burden] [github #13]
    * Passing in too many positional parameters now generates an error.
      [github #23]
    * Fixed a case where we'd eat compilation errors. [github #16]
    * Optional parameters will no longer fail type checks if they're not
      passed in. [github #12]
    * Depending on a new version of Devel::Declare that works with perl
      5.13 and up. [github #10]
    * Fix some cases where a compile time error will show up as an error
      inside PPI.

    Docs
    * Many grammar fixes and prose improvements [Noirin Plunkett] [github #25]
    * Slurpy parameters are clearly documented
    * The rules if a parameter is required or optional are more clear
    * Clarify that func() has no invocant [github #32]
    * Mention METHOD_SIGNATURES_DEBUG environment variable for debugging.
      [github #32]
    * Documented the "debug" option.
    * Documented issues with 5.8 and compile_at_BEGIN. [github #8] [github #22]

      different errors on compilation failure. [github #18]
    * Tests will no longer fail on 5.8. [github #22]


20110324.1600_001  Thu, 24 Mar 2011 16:00:38 +1100
    Bug Fix
    * Declare dependency on Any::Moose [github #9]


20110322.0027_001  Tue, 22 Mar 2011 00:27:00 +1100
    New Features
    * Added support for Perl 6 style type syntax backed by Any::Moose
      (barefootcoder) [github #3]

      [github #4]


20110216.1153_001  Wed, 16 Feb 2011 11:35:05 +1100
    New Features
    * Data::Alias is no longer optional.  It's been fixed and is now
      maintained.  Aliasing will now always work.

    Misc
    * Use Const::Fast to implement read only arguments.  This avoids the
      optional Readonly::XS to make it fast.


20100730  Fri Jul 30 12:54:20 PDT 2010
    New Features
    * Added func() to handle functions.

    Incompatible Changes
    * Data::Alias is now optional.  This is because it does not work in 5.12
      and there's no fix in sight.  If you want to use aliasing in your
      distribution it will have to depend on Data::Alias itself.

    Docs
    * Updated the SEE ALSO
    * Removed the assertion that no checks are done on the signature


20090620  Sat Jun 20 01:26:59 PDT 2009

    * Separated signature translation between methods and subroutines
      (needed by perl5i)

    New Features
    * Two or more slurpy parameters (ie. @foo or %bar) in a signature is
      an error.

    * methods are now declared at compile time, like regular subs.

    Other
    * Added some simple example files.

20081021  Tue Oct 21 01:43:24 PDT 2008
    New Features
    * Checks for unspecified arguments
    * Almost anything can be used as a default.

    Bug Fixes

    * Default values can now be any literal, even wacky things like q,Hi!,
    * The closing paren of a signature can now be on its own line.
    * The closing paren and the opening block can be on the same line.

    New Docs
    * Documented differences from Perl 6

    * Add some debugging tips


20081006  Mon Oct  6 02:24:36 EDT 2008
    New Features

    * Multiple traits supported "is copy is rw"
    * Implemented ! and ? (required and optional arguments)

      parse better.  (thanks to Florian Ragwitz)

    Other
    - Repository moved to github.
    - Changing to ISO date versions.


0.11  Sat Sep 27 16:47:51 EDT 2008
    New Features
    * Added the "$arg!" required syntax (currently does nothing)
    * Attributes now work (thanks to mst)

    New Docs
    - Documented how to set a trait and a default
    * Document that earlier params may be used in defaults.
    * Document that @_ is left intact
    * Clarify aliased ref behavior
    * Document anonymous methods

    Doc Fixes
    - Change "prototype" to "signature" to avoid confusion with Perl's
      built in prototypes.


0.05  Sun Sep 21 15:17:16 PDT 2008
    Bug Fixes
    * methods now get the right name in caller(), not "Class::__ANON__".
    * The \@foo prototype no longer has a performance hit
    * Closures now work with \@foo
      (All the above thanks to Matthijs van Duin and his Sub::Name and
       Data::Alias)

    Test Fixes
    * Not rigorously checking the bitmask and hints flags from caller() as
      their behavior is undefined.  This fixes the 5.10 test failures.


0.04  Sun Sep 21 13:52:29 PDT 2008
    New Features
    * A \@foo protototype allows you to use a reference as a regular var

    New Docs
