Revision history for Test-Valgrind 1.18 2015-11-16 15:00 UTC + Chg : A new Test::Valgrind::Version class has been added to represent valgrind version numbers, instead of lazily relying on version.pm. + Fix : The detection of the valgrind executable has been slightly improved to cover some edge cases. + Tst : Test failures on Windows, or with old versions of Test::More or File::Temp, have been addressed. Thanks Paul Howarth for reporting. + Tst : A few extraneous warnings displayed by some tests when they were run with old versions of Test::Harnes were silenced. 1.17 2015-11-13 13:50 UTC + Fix : [RT #108873] : Tests fail due to "Text file busy" Thanks Paul Howarth for reporting. 1.16 2015-11-12 23:30 UTC + Chg : The Test::Valgrind tests will now be skipped when the default and user-supplied suppressions files do not refer to any perl- related symbol. This behaviour can be overridden by passing 'allow_no_supp => 1' to Test::Valgrind->import. This fixes the following RT issue. + Fix : [RT #101934] : t/20-bad.t failing on armv7hl While the root cause of this issue is probably not at Test::Valgrind's level, it should nevertheless not run the tests when the suppression files are obviously insufficient. Thanks Paul Howarth for reporting and providing helpful feedback. + Fix : The accuracy of the default perl suppression file has been improved. + Fix : The tests will be more reliably skipped when no valgrind or no suppressions are found. + Fix : Segmentation faults during the analysis are now more gracefully handled. + Fix : 'no_def_supp => 1' will no longer cause the extra suppressions to be ignored. + Tst : t/20-bad.t will no longer run the extra tests when no valgrind can be found (this was a regression in version 1.15). 1.15 2015-10-30 16:15 UTC + Add : The new 'regen_def_supp' option can be passed to Test::Valgrind->import to forcefully regenerate the default suppression file. + Fix : Build failures of the dummy XS code with PERL_IMPLICIT_SYS perls. + Fix : Handshake failures in tests with recent perls built with PERL_POISON. + Tst : Improved diagnostics on failure. + Upd : Freshen Makefile.PL. 1.14 2013-09-01 17:10 UTC This is a maintenance release. The code contains no functional change. Satisfied users of version 1.13 can skip this update. + Doc : POD headings are now properly linkable. + Tst : Author tests are no longer bundled with this distribution. They are only made available to authors in the git repository. + Tst : The stack traces used in t/20-bad.t have been made more predictable when compiler optimizations are in use. 1.13 2011-08-25 15:45 UTC + Fix : The session will now call the finish() method at the right time. + Fix : The README file is now properly UTF-8-encoded. + Tst : Test demangling of Z-encoded symbols. 1.12 2009-11-29 16:45 UTC + Doc : The front documentation in Test::Valgrind was improved. + Fix : Don't install Valgrind.so, as it's only used for testing. + Fix : "Non-portable hex number" warnings. + Fix : Old versions of valgrind could leave some Z-encoded symbols in the stack traces. We now make sure they're always decoded. 1.11 2009-10-08 20:55 UTC + Doc : Completion and improvements. + Fix : Work around Kwalitee test misfailures. + Upd : Freshen Makefile.PL. 1.10 2009-09-22 18:45 UTC + Chg : valgrind is no longer required to be installed before installing this module. + Chg : The parser logic that used to be located inside the tool was moved to a new Test::Valgrind::Parser hierarchy. The tool decides which parser should be used by implementing the "parser_class" method. + Fix : Compatibility with valgrind 3.5. + Fix : The "valgrind" option to Test::Valgrind::Session->new wasn't doing anything. + Fix : The "Test" action could generate inappropriate error messages. 1.02 2009-05-02 12:05 UTC + Add : Commands can now be aggregated. + Add : The commands can now also filter and mangle reports. + Chg : The perl suppressions are now stripped from everything below Perl_runops_*. + Doc : Typos, nits and clarifications. 1.01 2009-04-14 21:15 UTC + Add : Allow testing code given by -e. Hurray for source filters! + Fix : Lazily load version.pm in Test::Valgrind::Session so that it's not really needed at configure time. + Fix : Don't unload dynamic extensions by default so that their symbols still appear in the stack traces. 1.00 2009-04-12 22:50 UTC Complete rewrite. The options passed to Test::Valgrind->import have changed, so please have a look at the doc. + Add : A brand new reusable API. + Add : Suppressions are now versionized following the perl interpreter and valgrind. They are regenerated as needed and stored in the user home directory. + Add : memcheck output is parsed by XML::Twig. + Add : The output of the original script is now correctly captured. + Rem : Lots of ugly hacks in the toolchain. 0.08 2009-02-08 18:25 UTC + Add : Unload the libraries loaded by DynaLoader at END time, reducing the number of leaks in perl. + Rem : The useless t/21-good-block.t. + Upd : META.yml spec updated to 1.4. 0.07 2008-09-30 13:35 UTC + Chg : Now conforms to the Test::Builder framework. + Fix : STDERR is longer eaten. + Fix : Eat STDOUT or print it as diagnostics, but never let him go through naked, as this may fiddle with the tests output. + Fix : 'make test' without prior 'make'. 0.06 2008-09-09 22:10 UTC + Fix : Suppressions were installed in the wrong path. Thanks Marvin Humphrey for reporting this. + Fix : Really load XSLoader when generating suppressions. Thanks Marvin Humphrey again for bringing this to my attention. + Fix : The logic for finding the file to run through valgrind was flawed, which lead to generate suppressions against Test/Valgrind.pm only. 0.051 2008-09-02 17:20 UTC + Fix : Forgot to upgrade version of the suppression placeholder module. 0.05 2008-08-25 22:05 UTC + Chg : Lower the default caller to 12. + Tst : Add a real-life test that gets executed only if you have a C compiler. 0.04 2008-05-13 16:25 UTC + Chg : Don't smoke this on 5.005 please. + Chg : Better way to find the valgrind executable. 0.03 2008-04-21 15:35 UTC + Fix : Include the mock Suppressions.pm rather than an empty file. 0.02 2008-04-21 15:25 UTC + Add : Test::Valgrind now depends on Perl::Destruct::Level. This is needed for non-debugging perls because we can't set their level of memory cleanup correctness on exit with the PERL_DESTRUCT_LEVEL environment variable. + Add : Hardcode valgrind path into the new constant Test::Valgrind::Suppressions::VG_PATH. + Chg : Test::Valgrind::Suppressions::supppath() is now supp_path(). + Chg : lib/Test/Valgrind/Suppressions.pm.tpl was renamed to lib/Test/Valgrind/Suppressions.tpl for file portability reasons. 0.01 2008-04-19 15:50 UTC First version, released on an unsuspecting world.
