      (Michael G Schwern) [github 350]
    * Fix test_fail() inside a do statement.
      (nnutter) [github #369]

    New Features
    * A subtest will put its name at the front of its results to make
      subtests easier to read. [github #290] [github #364]
      (Brendan Byrd)

    Feature Changes
    * like() and unlike() no longer warn about undef. [github #335]
      (Michael G Schwern)


0.98_04  Sun Apr 14 10:54:13 BST 2013
    Distribution Changes
    * Scalar::Util 1.13 (ships with Perl 5.8.1) is now required.
      (Michael G Schwern)

    Feature Changes
    * The default name and diagnostics for isa_ok() and new_ok() have
      changed. (Michael G Schwern)

    Docs Fixes
    * Added a COMPATIBILITY section so users know what major features were
      added with what version of Test::More or perl. [github 343] [github 344]
      (pdl)
    * Fix the ok() example with grep(). (derek.mead@gmail.com)

    Bug Fixes
    * A test with no plan and missing done_testing() now exits with non-zero.
      [github #341] (tokuhirom)
    * isa_ok() tests were broken in 5.17 because of a change in
      method resolution. [github #353] (Michael G Schwern)


0.98_03  Thu Jun 21 13:04:19 PDT 2012
    New Features
    * cmp_ok() will error when used with something which is not a
      comparison operator, including =, += and the like.
      [github 141] (Matthew Horsfall)

    Bug Fixes
    * use_ok() was calling class->import without quoting which could
      cause problems if "class" is also a function.

    Doc Fixes
    * use_ok() has been discouraged and de-emphasized as a general
      replacement for `use` in tests. [github #288]
    * $thing is now $this in the docs to avoid confusing users of
      other languages. [Karen Etheridge]

    Incompatible Changes With Previous Alphas (0.98_01)
    * use_ok() will no longer apply lexical pragams.  The incompatibilities
      and extra complexity is not worth the marginal use.
      [github #287]


0.98_02  Thu Nov 24 01:13:53 PST 2011
    Bug Fixes
    * use_ok() in 0.98_01 was leaking pragmas from inside Test::More.
      This looked like Test::More was forcing strict. [rt.cpan.org 67538]
      (Father Chrysostomos)


0.98_01  Tue Nov  8 17:07:58 PST 2011
    Bug Fixes
    * BAIL_OUT works inside a subtest. (Larry Leszczynski) [github #138]
    * subtests now work with threads turned on. [github #145]

    Feature Changes
    * use_ok() will now apply lexical effects. [rt.cpan.org 67538]
      (Father Chrysostomos)

    Misc
    * Test::More, Test::Simple and Test::Builder::Module now require
      a minimum version of Test::Builder.  This avoids Test::More and
      Test::Builder from getting out of sync. [github #89]


0.98  Wed, 23 Feb 2011 14:38:02 +1100
    Bug Fixes
    * subtest() should not fail if $? is non-zero. (Aaron Crane)

    Docs
    * The behavior of is() and undef has been documented. (Pedro Melo)


0.97_01  Fri Aug 27 22:50:30 PDT 2010
    Test Fixes
    * Adapted the tests for the new Perl 5.14 regex stringification.
      (Karl Williamson) [github 44]

    Doc Fixes
    * Document how to test "use Foo ()". (Todd Rinaldo) [github 41]

    Feature Changes
    * subtest() no longer has a prototype.  It was just getting in the way.
      [rt.cpan.org 54239]
    * The filehandles used by default will now inherit any filehandle
      disciplines from STDOUT and STDERR IF AND ONLY IF they were applied
      before Test::Builder is loaded.  More later. [rt.cpan.org 46542]


0.96  Tue Aug 10 21:13:04 PDT 2010
    Bug Fixes
    * You can call done_testing() again after reset() [googlecode 59]

    Other
    * Bug tracker moved to github


0.95_02  Wed May 19 15:46:52 PDT 2010
    Bug Fixes
    * Correct various typos and spelling errors (Nick Cleaton)
    * Fix alignment of indented multi-line diagnostics from subtests
      (Nick Cleaton)
    * Fix incorrect operation when subtest called from within a todo block
      (Nick Cleaton)
    * Avoid spurious output after a fork within a subtest
      (Nick Cleaton)


0.95_01  Wed Mar  3 15:36:59 PST 2010
    Bug Fixes
    * is_deeply() didn't see a difference in regexes [rt.cpan.org 53469]
    * Test::Builder::Tester now sets $tb->todo_output to the output handle and
      not the error handle (to be in accordance with the default behaviour of
      Test::Builder and allow for testing TODO test behaviour).
    * Fixed file/line in failing subtest() diagnostics. (Nick Cleaton)
    * Protect against subtests setting $Level (Nick Cleaton)

    New Features
    * subtests without a 'plan' or 'no_plan' have an implicit 'done_testing()'
      added to them.
    * is_deeply() performance boost for large structures consisting of
      mostly non-refs (Nick Cleaton)

    Feature Changes
    * is() and others will no longer stringify its arguments before
      comparing.  Overloaded objects will make use of their eq
      overload rather than their "" overload.  This can break tests of
      impolitely string overloaded objects.  DateTime prior to 0.54 is
      the biggest example.


0.94  Wed Sep  2 11:17:47 PDT 2009
    Releasing 0.93_01 as stable.


0.93_01  Mon Jul 20 09:51:08 PDT 2009
    Bug Fixes
    * Make sure that subtest works with Test:: modules which call
      Test::Builder->new at the top of their code. (Ovid)

    Other
    * subtest() returns!


0.92  Fri Jul  3 11:08:56 PDT 2009
    Test Fixes
    * Silence noise on VMS in exit.t (Craig Berry)
    * Skip Builder/fork_with_new_stdout.t on systems without fork (Craig Berry)


0.90  Thu Jul  2 13:18:25 PDT 2009
    Docs
    * Note the IO::Stringy license in our copy of it.
      [test-more.googlecode.com 47]

    Other
    * This is a stable release for 5.10.1.  It does not include
      the subtest() work in 0.89_01.


0.89_01  Tue Jun 23 15:13:16 EDT 2009
    New Features
    * subtest() allows you to run more tests in their own plan.
      (Thanks Ovid!)
    * Test::Builder->is_passing() will let you check if the test is
      currently passing.

    Docs
    * Finally added a note about the "Wide character in print" warning and
      how to work around it.

    Test Fixes
    * Small fixes for integration with the Perl core
      [bleadperl eaa0815147e13cd4ab5b3d6ca8f26544a9f0c3b4]
    * exit code tests could be effected by errno when PERLIO=stdio
      [bleadperl c76230386fc5e6fba9fdbeab473abbf4f4adcbe3]


0.88  Sat May 30 12:31:24 PDT 2009
    Turing 0.87_03 into a stable release.


0.87_03  Sun May 24 13:41:40 PDT 2009
    New Features
    * isa_ok() now works on classes. (Peter Scott)


0.87_02  Sat Apr 11 12:54:14 PDT 2009
    Test Fixes
    * Some filesystems don't like it when you open a file for writing multiple
      times.  Fixes t/Builder/reset.t. [rt.cpan.org 17298]
    * Check how an operating system is going to map exit codes.  Some OS'
      will map them... sometimes.  [rt.cpan.org 42148]
    * Fix Test::Builder::NoOutput on 5.6.2.


0.87_01  Sun Mar 29 09:56:52 BST 2009
    New Features
    * done_testing() allows you to declare that you have finished running tests,
      and how many you ran.  It is a safer no_plan and effectively replaces it.
    * output() now supports scalar references.

    Feature Changes
    * You can now run a test without first declaring a plan.  This allows
      done_testing() to work.
    * You can now call current_test() without first declaring a plan.

    Bug Fixes
    * skip_all() with no reason would output "1..0" which is invalid TAP.  It will
      now always include the SKIP directive.

    Other
    * Repository moved to github.


0.86  Sun Nov  9 01:09:05 PST 2008
    Same as 0.85_01


0.85_01  Thu Oct 23 18:57:38 PDT 2008
    New Features
    * cmp_ok() now displays the error if the comparison throws one.
      For example, broken overloaded objects.

    Bug Fixes
    * cmp_ok() no longer stringifies or numifies its arguments before comparing.
      This makes cmp_ok() properly test overloaded ops.
      [rt.cpan.org 24186] [code.google.com 16]
    * diag() properly escapes blank lines.

    Feature Changes
    * cmp_ok() now reports warnings and errors as coming from inside cmp_ok,
      as well as reporting the caller's file and line.  This let's the user
      know where cmp_ok() was called from while reminding them that it is
      being run in a different context.

    Other
    * Dependency on ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.27 only on Windows otherwise the
      nested tests won't run.


0.84  Wed Oct 15 09:06:12 EDT 2008
    Other
    * 0.82 accidentally shipped with experimental Mouse dependency.


0.82  Tue Oct 14 23:06:56 EDT 2008
    Bug Fixes
    - 0.81_01 broke $TODO such that $TODO = '' was considered todo.


0.81_02  Tue Sep  9 04:35:40 PDT 2008
    New Features
    * Test::Builder->reset_outputs() to reset all the output methods back to
      their defaults.

    Bug Fixes
    - Fixed the file and line number reported by like when it gets a bad
      regex.

    Feature Changes
    - Now preserves the tests' exit code if it exits abnormally, rather than
      setting it to 255.
    - Changed the "Looks like your test died" message to
      "Looks like your test exited with $exit_code"
    - no_plan now only warns if given an argument.  There were a lot of people
      doing that, and it's a sensible mistake.  [test-more.googlecode.com 13]


0.81_01  Sat Sep  6 15:13:50 PDT 2008
    New Features
    * Adam Kennedy bribed me to add new_ok().  The price was one DEFCON license key.
      [rt.cpan.org 8891]
    * TODO tests can now start and end with 'todo_start' and 'todo_end'
      Test::Builder methods. [rt.cpan.org 38018]
    * Added Test::Builder->in_todo() for a safe way to check if a test is inside a
      TODO block.  This allows TODO tests with no reason.
    * Added note() and explain() to both Test::More and Test::Builder.
      [rt.cpan.org 14764] [test-more.googlecode.com 3]

    Feature Changes
    * Changed the message for extra tests run to show the number of tests run rather than
      the number extra to avoid the user having to do mental math.
      [rt.cpan.org 7022]    

    Bug fixes
    - using a relative path to perl broke tests              [rt.cpan.org 34050]
    - use_ok() broke $SIG{__DIE__} in the used module        [rt.cpan.org 34065]
    - diagnostics for isnt() were confusing on failure       [rt.cpan.org 33642]
    - warnings when MakeMaker's version contained _          [rt.cpan.org 33626]
    - add explicit test that non-integer plans die correctly [rt.cpan.org 28836]
      (Thanks to Hans Dieter Pearcey [confound] for fixing the above)
    - die if no_plan is given an argument                    [rt.cpan.org 27429]


0.80  Sun Apr  6 17:25:01 CEST 2008
    Test fixes
    - Completely disable the utf8 test.  It was causing perl to panic on some OS's.


0.79_01  Wed Feb 27 03:04:54 PST 2008
    Bug fixes
    - Let's try the IO layer copying again, this time with the test
      fixed for 5.10.


0.78  Wed Feb 27 01:59:09 PST 2008
    Bug fixes
    * Whoops, the version of Test::Builder::Tester got moved backwards.


0.77  Wed Feb 27 01:55:55 PST 2008
    Bug fixes
    - "use Test::Builder::Module" no longer sets exported_to() or does
      any other importing.
    - Fix the $TODO finding code so it can find $TODO without the benefit
      of exported_to(), which is often wrong.
    - Turn off the filehandle locale stuff for the moment, there's a 
      problem on 5.10.  We'll try it again next release.
      
    Doc improvements
    - Improve the Test::Builder SYNOPSIS to use Test::Builder::Module
      rather than write it's own import().


0.76_02  Sun Feb 24 13:12:55 PST 2008
    Bug fixes
    * The default test output filehandles will NOT use utf8.
      They will now copy the IO layers from STDOUT and STDERR.
      This means if :utf8 is on then it will honor it and not
      warn about wide characters.


0.76_01  Sat Feb 23 20:44:32 PST 2008
    Bug fixes
    * Test::Builder no longer uses a __DIE__ handler.  This resolves a number
      of problems with exit codes being swallowed or other module's handlers
      being interfered with.  [rt.cpan.org 25294]
    - Allow maybe_regex() to detect blessed regexes.  [bleadperl @32880]
    - The default test output filehandles will now use utf8.
      [rt.cpan.org 21091]

    Test fixes
    - Remove the signature test.  Adds no security and just generates
      failures.


0.75  Sat Feb 23 19:03:38 PST 2008
    Incompatibilities
    * The minimum version is now 5.6.0.

    Bug fixes
    - Turns out require_ok() had the same bug as use_ok() in a BEGIN block.
    - ok() was not honoring exported_to() when looking for $TODO as it
      should be.
    
    Test fixes
    * is_deeply_with_threads.t will not run unless AUTHOR_TESTING is set.
      This is because it tickles intermittent threading bugs in many perls
      and causes a lot of bug reports about which I can do nothing.
    
    Misc
    - Ran through perlcritic and did some cleaning.

0.74  Thu Nov 29 15:39:57 PST 2007
    Misc
    - Add abstract and author to the meta information.

0.73_01  Mon Oct 15 20:35:15 EDT 2007
    Bug fixes
    * Put the use_ok() fix from 0.71 back.

0.72  Wed Sep 19 20:08:07 PDT 2007
    Bug unfixes
    * The BEGIN { use_ok } fix for [rt.cpan.org 28345] revealed a small pile of 
      mistakes in CPAN module test suites.  Rolling the fix back to give the
      authors a bit of time to fix their tests.

0.71  Thu Sep 13 20:42:36 PDT 2007
    Bug fixes
    - Fixed a problem with BEGIN { use_ok } silently failing when there's no
      plan set.  [rt.cpan.org 28345]  Thanks Adriano Ferreira and Yitzchak.
    - Fixed an obscure problem with is_deeply() and overloading ==
      [rt.cpan.org 20768].  Thanks Sisyphus.

    Test fixes
    - Removed dependency on Text::Soundex [rt.cpan.org 25022]
    - Fixed a 5.5.x failure in fail-more.t
    * Got rid of the annoying sort_bug.t test that revealed problems with some
      threaded perls.  It was testing the deprecated eq_* functions and not
      worth the bother.  Now it tests is_deeply().  [rt.cpan.org 17791]

    Doc fixes
    - Minor POD mistake in Test::Builder [rt.cpan.org 28869]
    * Test::FAQ has been updated with some more answers.

    Install fixes
    - Fixed the "LICENSE is not a known MakeMaker parameter name" warning
      on older MakeMakers for real this time.

0.70  Thu Mar 15 15:53:05 PDT 2007
    Bug Fixes
    * The change to is_fh() in 0.68 broke the case where a reference to
      a tied filehandle is used for perl 5.6 and back.  This made the tests
      puke their guts out.

0.69  Wed Mar 14 06:43:35 PDT 2007
    Test fixes
    - Minor filename compatibility fix to t/fail-more.t [rt.cpan.org 25428]

0.68  Tue Mar 13 17:27:26 PDT 2007
    Bug fixes
    * If your code has a $SIG{__DIE__} handler in some cases functions like
      use_ok(), require_ok(), can_ok() and isa_ok() could trigger that
      handler. [rt.cpan.org 23509]
    - Minor improvement to TB's filehandle detection in the case of overridden
      isa(). [rt.cpan.org 20890]
    - Will now install as a core module in 5.6.2 which ships with Test::More.
      [rt.cpan.org 25163]

    New Features
    - Test::Builder->is_fh() provides a way to determine if a thing
      can be used as a filehandle.

    Documentation improvements
    - Improved the docs for $Test::Builder::Level showing the encouraged
      use (increment, don't set)
    - Documented the return value of Test::Builder's test methods
    - Split out TB's method documentation to differenciate between test
      methods (ok, is_eq...), methods useful in testing (skip, BAILOUT...)
      and methods useful for building your own tests (maybe_regex...).

    Test fixes
    - We required too old a version of Test::Pod::Coverage.  Need 1.08 and not
      1.00. [rt.cpan.org 25351]

0.67  Mon Jan 22 13:27:40 PST 2007
    Test fixes
    - t/pod_coverage.t would fail if Test::Pod::Coverage between 1.07 and
      1.00 were installed as it depended on all_modules being exported.
      [rt.cpan.org 24483]

0.66  Sun Dec  3 15:25:45 PST 2006
    - Restore 5.4.5 compatibility (unobe@cpan.org) [rt.cpan.org 20513]

0.65  Fri Nov 10 10:26:51 CST 2006

0.64_03  Sun Nov  5 13:09:55 EST 2006
    - Tests will no longer warn when run against an alpha version of
      Test::Harness [rt.cpan.org #20501]
    - Now testing our POD and POD coverage.
    - Added a LICENSE field.
    - Removed warning from the docs about mixing numbered and unnumbered
      tests.  There's nothing wrong with that. [rt.cpan.org 21358]
    - Change doc examples to talk about $got and $expected rather than
      $this and $that to correspond better to the diagnostic output
      [rt.cpan.org 2655]

0.64_02  Sat Sep  9 12:16:56 EDT 2006
    - Last release broke Perls earlier than 5.8.

0.64_01  Mon Sep  4 04:40:42 EDT 2006
    - Small improvement to the docs to avoid user confusion over
      "use Test::More tests => $num_tests" (Thanks Eric Wilhelm)
    - Minor fix for a test failure in is_deeply_fail for some Windows
      users.  Not a real bug.  [rt.cpan.org 21310]
    - _print_diag() accidentally leaked into the public documentation.
      It is a private method.
    * Added Test::Builder->carp() and croak()
    * Made most of the error messages report in the caller's context.
      [rt.cpan.org #20639]
    * Made the failure diagnostic message file and line reporting portion
      match Perl's for easier integration with Perl aware editors.
      (so its "at $file line $line_num." now)
      [rt.cpan.org #20639]
    * 5.8.0 threads are no longer supported.  There's too many bugs.

0.64  Sun Jul 16 02:47:29 PDT 2006
    * 0.63's change to test_fail() broke backwards compatibility.  They
      have been removed for the time being.  test_pass() went with it.
      This is [rt.cpan.org 11317] and [rt.cpan.org 11319].
    - skip() will now warn if you get the args backwards.

0.63  Sun Jul  9 02:36:36 PDT 2006
    * Fixed can_ok() to gracefully handle no class name.
      Submitted by "Pete Krawczyk" <perl@bsod.net>
      Implemented by "Richard Foley" <richard.foley@rfi.net>
      [rt.cpan.org 15654]
    * Added test_pass() to Test::Builder::Tester rather than having to
      call test_out("ok 1 - foo"). <chromatic@wgz.org> [rt.cpan.org 11317]
    * test_fail() now accepts a test diagnostic rather than having to
      call test_out() separately. <chromatic@wgz.org> [rt.cpan.org 11319]
    - Changed Test::Builder::Tester docs to show best practice using
      test_fail() and test_pass().
    - isnt_num() doc example wrongly showed is_num(). <chromatic@wgz.org>
    - Fixed a minor typo in the BAIL_OUT() docs. <Jeff Deifik>
    - Removed the LICENSE field from the Makefile.PL as the release of
      MakeMaker with that feature has been delayed.

0.62  Sat Oct  8 01:25:03 PDT 2005
    * Absorbed Test::Builder::Tester.  The last release broke it because its
      screen scraping Test::More and the failure output changed.  By
      distributing them together we ensure TBT won't break again.
    * Test::Builder->BAILOUT() was missing.
    - is_deeply() can now handle function and code refs in a very limited
      way.  It simply looks to see if they have the same referent.
      [rt.cpan.org 14746]

0.61  Fri Sep 23 23:26:05 PDT 2005
    - create.t was trying to read from a file before it had been closed
      (and thus the changes may not have yet been written).
    * is_deeply() would call stringification methods on non-object strings
      which happened to be the name of a string overloaded class.
      [rt.cpan.org 14675]

0.60_02  Tue Aug  9 00:27:41 PDT 2005
    * Added Test::Builder::Module.
    - Changed Test::More and Test::Simple to use Test::Builder::Module
    - Minor Win32 testing nit in fail-more.t
    * Added no_diag() method to Test::Builder and changed Test::More's
      no_diag internals to use that. [rt.cpan.org 8655]
    * Deprecated no_diag() as an option to "use Test::More".  Call the
      Test::Builder method instead.

0.60_01  Sun Jul  3 18:11:58 PDT 2005
    - Moved the docs around a little to better group all the testing
      functions together. [rt.cpan.org 8388]
    * Added a BAIL_OUT() function to Test::More [rt.cpan.org 8381]
    - Changed Test::Builder->BAILOUT to BAIL_OUT to match other method's
      naming conventions.  BAILOUT remains but is deprecated.
    * Changed the standard failure diagnostics to include the test name.
      [rt.cpan.org 12490]
    - is_deeply() was broken for overloaded objects in the top level in
      0.59_01.  [rt.cpan.org 13506]
    - String overloaded objects without an 'eq' or '==' method are now
      handled in cmp_ok() and is().
    - cmp_ok() will now treat overloaded objects as numbers if the comparison
      operator is numeric. [rt.cpan.org 13156]
    - cmp_ok(), like() and unlike will now throw uninit warnings if their
      arguments are undefined. [rt.cpan.org 13155]
    - cmp_ok() will now throw warnings as if the comparison were run 
      normally, for example cmp_ok(2, '==', 'foo') will warn about 'foo' 
      not being numeric.  Previously all warnings in the comparison were
      suppressed. [rt.cpan.org 13155]
    - Tests will now report *both* the number of tests failed and if the
      wrong number of tests were run.  Previously if tests failed and the
      wrong number were run it would only report the latter. 
      [rt.cpan.org 13494]
    - Missing or extra tests are not considered failures for the purposes
      of calculating the exit code.  Should there be no failures but the
      wrong number of tests the exit code will be 254.
    - Avoiding an unbalanced sort in eq_set() [bugs.perl.org 36354]
    - Documenting that eq_set() doesn't deal well with refs.
    - Clarified how is_deeply() compares a bit.
    * Once again working on 5.4.5.

0.60  Tue May  3 14:20:34 PDT 2005

0.59_01  Tue Apr 26 21:51:12 PDT 2005
    * Test::Builder now has a create() method which allows you to create
      a brand spanking new Test::Builder object.
    * require_ok() was not working for single letter module names.
    * is_deeply() and eq_* now work with circular scalar references
      (Thanks Fergal)
    * Use of eq_* now officially discouraged.
    - Removed eq_* from the SYNOPSIS.
    - is_deeply(undef, $not_undef); now works. [rt.cpan.org 9441]
    - is_deeply() was mistakenly interpreting the same reference used twice
      in a data structure as being circular causing failures.
      [rt.cpan.org 11623]
    - Loading Test::Builder but not using it would interfere with the
      exit code if the code exited. [rt.cpan.org 12310]
    - is_deeply() diagnostics now disambiguate between stringified references
      and references. [rt.cpan.org 8865]
    - Files opened by the output methods are now autoflushed.
    - todo() now honors $Level when looking for $TODO.

0.54  Wed Dec 15 04:18:43 EST 2004
    * $how_many is optional for skip() and todo_skip().  Thanks to 
      Devel::Cover for pointing this out.
    - Removed a user defined function called err() in the tests to placate
      users of older versions of the dor patch before err() was weakend.
      [rt.cpan.org 8734]

0.53_01  Sat Dec 11 19:02:18 EST 2004
    - current_test() can now be set backward.
    - *output() methods now handle tied handles and *FOO{IO} properly.
    - maybe_regex() now handles undef gracefully.
    - maybe_regex() now handles 'm,foo,' style regexes.
    - sort_bug.t wasn't checking for threads properly.  Would fail on
      5.6 that had ithreads compiled in. [rt.cpan.org 8765]

0.53  Mon Nov 29 04:43:24 EST 2004
    - Apparently its possible to have Module::Signature installed without
      it being functional.  Fixed the signature test to account for this.
      (not a real bug)

0.52  Sun Nov 28 21:41:03 EST 2004
    - plan() now better checks that the given plan is valid. 
      [rt.cpan.org 2597]

0.51_02  Sat Nov 27 01:25:25 EST 2004
    * is_deeply() and all the eq_* functions now handle circular data
      structures.  [rt.cpan.org 7289]
    * require_ok() now handles filepaths in addition to modules.
    - Clarifying Test::More's position on overloaded objects 
    - Fixed a bug introduced in 0.51_01 causing is_deeply() to pierce
      overloaded objects.
    - Mentioning rt.cpan.org for reporting bugs.

0.51_01  Fri Nov 26 02:59:30 EST 2004
    - plan() was accidentally exporting functions [rt.cpan.org 8385]
    * diag @msgs would insert # between arguments. [rt.cpan.org 8392]
    * eq_set() could cause problems under threads due to a weird sort bug
      [rt.cpan.org 6782]
    * undef no longer equals '' in is_deeply() [rt.cpan.org 6837]
    * is_deeply() would sometimes compare references as strings.
      [rt.cpan.org 7031]
    - eq_array() and eq_hash() could hold onto references if they failed
      keeping them in memory and preventing DESTROY.  [rt.cpan.org 7032]
    * is_deeply() could confuse [] with a non-existing value
      [rt.cpan.org 7030]
    - is_deeply() diagnostics a little off when scalar refs were inside
      an array or hash ref [rt.cpan.org 7033]
    - Thanks to Fergal Daly for ferretting out all these long standing 
      is_deeply and eq_* bugs.

0.51  Tue Nov 23 04:51:12 EST 2004
    - Fixed bug in fail_one.t on Windows (not a real bug).
    - TODO reasons as overloaded objects now won't blow up under threads.
      [Autrijus Tang]
    - skip() in 0.50 tickled yet another bug in threads::shared.  Hacked
      around it.

0.50  Sat Nov 20 00:28:44 EST 2004
    - Fixed bug in fail-more test on Windows (not a real bug).
      [rt.cpan.org 8022]
    - Change from CVS to SVK.  Hopefully this is the last time I move
      version control systems.
    - Again removing File::Spec dependency (came back in 0.48_02)
    - Change from Aegis back to CVS

0.49  Thu Oct 14 21:58:50 EDT 2004
    - t/harness_active.t would fail for frivolous reasons with older
      MakeMakers (test bug) [thanks Bill Moseley for noticing]

0.48_02  Mon Jul 19 02:07:23 EDT 2004
    * Overloaded objects as names now won't blow up under threads
      [rt.cpan.org 4218 and 4232]
    * Overloaded objects which stringify to undef used as test names
      now won't cause internal uninit warnings. [rt.cpan.org 4232]
    * Failure diagnostics now come out on their own line when run in 
      Test::Harness.
    - eq_set() sometimes wasn't giving the right results if nested refs 
      were involved [rt.cpan.org 3747]
    - isnt() giving wrong diagnostics and warning if given any undefs.
    * Give unlike() the right prototype [rt.cpan.org 4944]

    - Mention Test::Class in Test::More's SEE ALSO
    * use_ok() now DWIM for version checks
    - More problems with ithreads fixed.
    * Test::Harness upgrade no longer optional.  It was causing too
      many problems when the T::H upgrade didn't work.
    * Drew Taylor added a 'no_diag' option to Test::More to switch
      off all diag() statements.
    * Test::Builder/More no longer automatically loads threads.pm

    * Alex Francis added reset() reset the state of Test::Builder in 
      persistent environments.

    - Adding Mark Fowler's suggestion to make diag() return
      false.
    - TB->current_test() still not working when no tests were run via
      TB itself.  Fixed by Dave Rolsky.

0.42  Wed Mar  6 15:00:24 EST 2002
    - Setting Test::Builder->current_test() now works (see what happens
      when you forget to test things?)
    - The change in is()'s undef/'' handling in 0.34 was an API change, 
      but I forgot to declare it as such.
    - The apostrophilic jihad attacks!  Philip Newtons patch for
      grammar mistakes in the doc's.

0.41  Mon Dec 17 22:45:20 EST 2001

      output came out in the wrong order when piped.

0.35  Tue Nov 27 19:57:03 EST 2001
    - Little glitch in the test suite.  No actual bug.

    * Added Test::Builder
      (Thanks muchly to chromatic for getting this off the ground!)
    * Diagnostics are back to using STDERR *unless* it's from a todo
      test.  Those go to STDOUT.
    - Fixed it so nothing is printed if a test is run with a -c flag.
      Handy when a test is being deparsed with B::Deparse.

0.20  *UNRELEASED*

0.19  Tue Sep 18 17:48:32 EDT 2001
    * Test::Simple and Test::More no longer print their diagnostics
      to STDERR.  It instead goes to STDOUT.

      pointing out that Unix can't do negative exit codes)
    - abnormal exits now better caught.
    - No longer using Test.pm to test this, but still minimum of 5.005
      due to needing $^S.
