0.24 2016-06-20 - Fix a bizarre failure on Perl before 5.14. AFAICT this was a test problem, not a library problem. 0.23 2016-06-20 - Added intersection types. 0.22 2016-06-18 - Require version 0.83. I know 0.77 doesn't work but I'm not sure exactly which version fixed the problem, since I cannot install older versions. Reported by Slaven Rezic. RT #115418. 0.21 2016-06-18 - Don't load Sub::Quote, but use it if it's already loaded. Since Moo uses it, this should make Specio constraints just work with Moo. 0.20 2016-06-18 - Removed test dependency on namespace::autoclean. 0.19 2016-06-17 - Removed dependency on Devel::PartialDump by making a copy of just the bits we need. Gross but effective. 0.18 2016-06-15 - Added union types. - If a subtype's parent could be inlined and the subtype itself did not specify any additional constraints (inlinable or not), then the subtype was not being inlined, even though it could be. - This distro now works with Perl 5.8 (though it was only tested with 5.8.8). 0.17 2016-06-01 - Change "use v5.10" to "use 5.010". The former appears to cause warnings on older Perls. 0.16 2016-05-30 - Remove use of Class::Load and Module::Runtime. 0.15 2016-05-30 - The Num and Int type now accepts numbers in scientific notation such as 1e10 or -1.2e-5. - Removed various prereqs that weren't really needed. - Added three new libraries, Specio::Library::String, ::Numeric, and ::Perl. These provide additional commonly used string and numeric types, as well as some types related to Perl syntax. 0.14 2016-05-22 - Added an inline_assert method for constraint objects. This makes certain types of inlining tasks easier. - Parameterized constraint objects now have a default name based on the parent type and contained type. - Rewrote the code used for inlined types so that the generated inline code is optimized to check the most common cases first. - Fixed a bug where two enum types could not be inlined together in the same sub. 0.13 2016-05-15 - Parameterizing a type which generated inline parameterized constraints (like the ArrayRef and HashRef builtins) now dies if given a parameter which cannot itself be inlined. Mixing inlinable and non-inlinable constraints previously caused very confusing errors. 0.12 2015-12-19 - Fixed tests that failed if Moose wasn't installed. Reported by Karen Etheridge. RT #109247. 0.11 2014-05-27 - Remove a Perl 5.14-ism. 0.10 2014-05-26 - Added Class::Method::Modifiers to prereqs. - Made Specio classes faster by inlining all accessors and constructors. - Added support for Moo. Specio constraints now overloading sub-ification so you can pass them as "isa" values for Moo attributes. Also added a new $type->coercion_sub() method which returns a sub ref suitable for the "coerce" value. These all use Sub::Quote so that the returned sub refs can be inlined. 0.09 2014-05-25 - Reimplemented entirely without Moose. This module now implements its own half-assed (really, more like eighth-assed) OO system. * TODO: Integrate cleanly with Moo and Moose. * TODO: Improve the internal OO system to do some eighth-assed inlining so creating type objects is faster. 0.08 2013-06-08 - Removed the use of the encoding pragma from the tests. This pragma is deprecated in 5.18. 0.07 2013-03-03 - Disabled the tests that rely on an as-yet-unreleased Moose. These were mostly disabled but some cpan testers boxes were set up in a way that made them run. 0.06 2013-03-02 - Renamed Type to Specio. 0.05 2012-10-14 - This module didn't really need XS. It turns out that 5.10 added re::is_regexp() so we can use that instead. Thanks to Jesse Luehrs for pointing this out. 0.04 2012-09-30 - Added any_does_type and object_does_type declaration helpers. These check whether a class and/or object does a given role. They work with Moose, Mouse, and Role::Tiny. - Fixed implementation of any_isa_type and object_isa_type to match docs. If given more than one argument, the docs said they expected named parameters but internally the code expected positional parameters. 0.03 2012-09-30 - Various hacks to make Specio::Constraint objects play nice with Moose. Needs changes to Moose to work properly, however. - The message generator sub is no longer called as a method. It is called as a sub so it doesn't receive the type as an argument. - The inline environment variable names used for each type are now unique. This means that types will not step on each other if you want to inline more than one type check in the same scope. - Non-inlined type coercions were completely broken. - Added $type->is_same_type_as and $type->is_a_type_of methods. - The Maybe type was a subtype of Ref in the code, which is wrong. It is now a subtype of Item. - This module now explicitly requires Perl 5.10. 0.02 2012-05-14 - Now with lots more documentation, but this is still very alpha. Feedback from potential users is welcome. 0.01 2012-05-13 - First release upon an unsuspecting world. This is very alpha and subject to change. I'm mostly releasing it to get some feedback on the design. Do not use this in your code yet, unless you promise not to complain about the lack of docs or the fact that the next release breaks your code.
