Revision history for Perl extension CGI::Simple. 0.01 Thu Nov 1 12:21:48 2001 - original version; created by h2xs 1.21 with options -X CGI::Simple 0.02 Fri Dec 21 2001 - added cgi_error() if upload called but CONTENT_TYPE not multipart/form-data - changed inernal storage names of globals by droping $ - added mod_perl notes re Selfloader and __DATA__ token - as per suggestions from Curtis Poe 0.03 Fri Apr 12 2002 - modifed test so skipping fork() test is noted as such - allow '0' as a valid param name - renamed concur.t to concur.test so that it does not rub by default - added speed tests comparing CGI.pm to CGI::Simple in the file cgi-simple_vs_cgi-pm.html in the root dir 0.04 Sat Apr 12 2002 - test bug on Solaris reported by firstname.lastname@example.org and fixed 0.05 Wed Nov 6 2002 - nasty upload bug reported (with solution) by Brandon Black fixed. Perl would hang if upload terminated by browser before completion - also odity with IO::file fixed (Brandon Black once again) 0.06 Fri Nov 8 2002 - finally found someone with a solaris box to work out reason for unexpected test failures. Thanks to John D. Robinson and Jeroen Latour Details available at: http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=211401 - Removed another new bug relating to test scripts rather than core code thanks to the combined effors of Perlmonks tommyw, grinder, Jaap, vek, erasei, jlongino and strider_corinth 0.07 Sat Aug 2 2003 - i admit to abject slackness, but anyway finally allocated a few hours to apply a number of bug fixes which are (in no particular order) - mod_perl compliant, patched by Mathew Albright - still need to comment out use Selfloader and __DATA__ token - still thinking about other solutions to this - Blessed globs now possible in the constructor thanks to chromatic - Unicode error 0xfe | ($c >> 30) -> 0xfc | ($c >>30 ) fixed thanks to Thomas L. Shinnick - s/$value ||= 0/$value = defined $value ? $value : ''/ in raw_fetch() method in Cookie.pm to allow value 0. - Added missing $VERSION to Util.pm - Added P3P support as suggested by Marc Bauer (parallels CGI.pm) - updated header() and redirect() methods in Simple.pm 0.071 Sat Aug 2 2003 - Oops, changed $VERSION to 0.007 not 0.07 so have to change to 0.071 to upload again. ;-) - no significant changes since 0.07 (aka 0.007) ;-) 0.072 Tue Sept 9 2003 - Patched issue with large POSTs where data may not be on STDIN for single read call. Bug exists in CGI.pm as well. Thanks to Jason Luther - Added tests for slow post behaviour 0.075 Tue June 1 2004 - Meant to upload 0.73 and 0.074 but just never got around to it - Fixed upload hang bug in certain circumstances - Added upload_fieldnames() method by request - Added support for $fh = upload('field_name') but this has the issue of what to do if 'field_name' is duplicated. You can only ever get one fh from this method unlike the favoured approach using param() to get the filename(s) which will let you get to all the files. - José Micó deserves plaudits as does PodMaster. 0.076 - Went missing in action. 0.077 Tue 23 Nov 2004 - Bugfix patches. - José Micó supplied patch that relates to character set allowed in headers. TAB and high ascii chars are definitivelly allowed in headers, and not accepting them prevents the upload of files with filenames like "España.txt". - José Micó also notes that some versions of IE send extra boundaries in POSTed data before real ones. New patch should be fix this IE issue. - Lars Thegler supplied some patches. - head2/head3 pod changed to head1/head2 for the benefit of some older tools that exepect this. - Resolved issue with manpages not being installed on FREEBSD via Makefile hack - Steve Purkis supplied a patch for a serious POST_MAX bug. A small modification to control flow was used instead but this was a serious bug. If you are reading this you are probably upgrading which is good. 0.078 2007-01-09 - Maintenance release by Andy Armstrong <email@example.com> - Rewrote tests to use Test::More - Implemented mod_perl 2 support 0.080 2007-03-30 - Fixed problem parsing query args containing '='.

Thanks to Mike Barry for the patch. 0.83 2007-05-22 - Big version jump to move version past badly formatted version in Cookie, Util. 1.0 2007-05-24 - Another big version jump.
