DMITRI / RT-Client-REST-0.49 / CHANGES

Revision history for Perl module RT::Client::REST

0.49	Sat May 10 2014 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
  - This module is now all covered by the Perl Artistic License:
    GPL is gone.  This was done with permission from the original
    author of the command-line `rt' utility, Abhijit Menon-Sen.
  - Support custom fields that contain '#' in their name.  Patch
    contributed by Ryan Niebur in RT#83856 -- thanks!
  - Documented get_links() -- RT#68673.
  - All tests now correctly run on Windows -- RT#81872.
  - All tests now correctly run on OpenBSD -- RT#95223.

0.48    Wed Apr 30 2014 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
  - Fixed POD bug in 0.47 -- `logger' attribute and method of
    RT::Client::REST was not documented and this caused POD
    coverage test to fail.  While at it, made it a developer-only
    test.  This way, these types of issues do not cause all
    cpantesters to fail.

0.47    Wed Apr 30 2014 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
  - Support redirects on login, RT#92371.
  - Skip failing test 83-attachments.t on OpenBSD while we investigage
    why it fails.  Track this issue in RT#95223.

0.46    Sat Apr 26 2014 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
  This release only fixes several tests, there are no functional changes.
  Dmitri Tikhonov <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
   - Skip some tests on Windows and with buggy LWP::UserAgent.
  Marco Pessotto
   - Bumped version for next release (+ fixed version number in POD)

   - Added option to get undecoded attachments (RT#90112)
   - Added test 82-stringify.t (fails with 0.44 before the RT#88919 fix)
   - Added test 83-attachments.t to illustrate and check RT#90112

0.44
  Damien Krotkine
   - Add URI in the prereqs
  Dave Lambley
   - Add support for parsing RT dates and returning a datetime object.
     (RT#73920 + RT#76658)

     Fix for submitting non latin-1 strings to RT

0.43
  Miquel Ruiz <mruiz@cpan.org>
    - Added support for groups via new class RT::Client::REST::Group
      Tests and examples also added.
  Roman Plesll <RPLESSL@cpan.org>
    - Fix for ticket merges (RT #62405)
  Stuart Browne <stuart.browne@ausregistry.com.au>
    - Accept question mark in custom field names (RT #70631)

      RT::Client::REST::User
    - Clean up the API for retrieving links. Patch from T.Pascal is missing some
      cases like links that are URLs. This feature is not documented as it's
      considered experimental.
    - Refactor login method to accept any type of field name (not just username
      and password)

0.42
  False release. See 0.43
  - support for groups via new class RT::Client::REST::Group
  - Fix for ticket merges
  - Accept question mark in custom field names

0.41
  Tomas Doran <bobtfish@bobtfish.net>
 - Make version number a string to avoid length of version number changing
   at 0.X0 releases (as this breaks distro packages)
 - Update META.yml to the 0.4 META spec.
 - Include repository metadata to make it easier for people to contribute
   to the module.
 - Change from ExtUtils::MakeMaker to Module::Install (I'm sure you can
   generate the correct information with EU::MM, I just don't know how
   offhand).
 - Add Test::More as a test_requires to help distros which split it out
   of their core perl package (RT#45150)

0.40 
  Jerrad Pierce <jpierce@cpan.org>
  - #38710, more user attributes
  - #39868 & #42391, Alter CF parsing to accomodate 3.8 as well as 3.6
	This required tweaks to Forms as well as Object.
  - #38591 & #43844, Add requestor attribute to Ticket so that autoreplies
	are sent to users under RT3.8

0.37	Fri Aug 15 2008 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
  - Fri Aug 15 2008 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
    Improvement: reorganized exceptions, made
    RT::Client::REST::Object::Exception a subclass of
    RT::Client::REST::Exception.  What this means is that now any native
    exception thrown by RT::Client::REST code can be caught by catching a
    generic RT::Client::REST::Exception class.  Added tests to ticket and
    attachment tests scripts to verify the behavior.  I have been meaning
    to do this for a while now.

    Fixed an error in RT::Client::REST::Ticket POD.  Bug 36814.

0.36    Sat May 10 2008 "Damien Krotkine" <dams@cpan.org>
  - Sat May 10 2008 "Damien Krotkine" <dams@cpan.org>

0.34    Tue Mar 04 2008 "Damien Krotkine" <dams@cpan.org>

    s/dtikhonov@vonage.com/dtikhonov@yahoo.com/

  - Tue, 29 Jan 2008 "Damien Krotkine" <dams@cpan.org>
    Decode data from REST from the proper encoding to Perl internal.
    Thanks to "S├ębastien Aperghis-Tramoni" <sebastien@aperghis.net> 

  - Fri, 25 Jan 2008 "Damien Krotkine" <dams@cpan.org>
    Add dirty custom fields handling. Without it, cf are always submitted,
    included void ones, which may (and does on rt.cpan.org) conflict with
    custom fields rules on the server (e.g. a custom field value cannot be
    empty)

0.32    Sun Dec 23 2007 "Dmitri Tikhonov" <dtikhonov@yahoo.com>
  - Fixed bug 31827 -- allow to specify custom fields at creation time.
    Method 'cf' can now take a hash reference that has a list of custom
    fields and their values.

  - Fixed bug 31828: allow to specify ticket content at creation time.
    Methods RT::Client::REST->create and RT::Client::REST::Ticket->store
    now take optional 'text' parameter.
