Revision history for Perl extension Class::Meta.

0.36  2004-07-30T00:59:31
      - Finally, truly got the tests fixed for Windows. Without question.
        The fix was even tested, first! Thanks to Robert Rothenberg for
        his persistence.
      - Minor doc fixes, repoted by Jesse Vincent.
      - Added simple example for a default value code reference. Suggested
        by Jesse Vincent.

0.35  2004-06-28T23:16:16
      - Fixed the names of the included types classes in the documentation
        of Class::Meta::Type. Spotted by Dan Kubb.
      - Fixed a few documentation references to a "class()" method to
        reference the correctly named "my_class()" method.
      - Fixed failing tests on Win32. For real this time, I hope! Reported
        by Robert Rothenberg's CPAN testing.
      - Added build() method to Class::Meta::Method to parallel the same
        method in Class::Meta::Attribute and Class::Meta::Constructor.
        It's a no-op, but will be called when Class::Meta::build() is
        called, so it could be useful for subclasses. Inspired by a
        suggestion by Mark Jaroski.
      - Added POD coverage test.
      - Documented undocumented methods and functions. Most of these are
        actually protected methods, but they will be of interest to those
        creating their own subclasses or accessor generators Class::Meta.

      - Fixed failing tests on Win32. Reported by Robert Rothenberg's CPAN

0.33  2004-06-17T00:05:47
      - Added "override" parameter to "add_attribute()" so that subclasses
        can override attributes in their parent classes.

0.32  2004-05-25T17:09:39
      - Fixed the MANIFEST so that the new semi-affordance accessor generation
        actually works. Reported by Mark Jaroski.

0.31  2004-04-20T18:25:25
      - Moved extra code to prevent AccessorBuilder from pointing to
        Constructor in the default (croak) error handler from AccessorBuilder
        to the default error handler. Carp is a PITA.
      - Added "handle_error()" class method to Class::Meta. This method is
        used by Class::Meta classes when no Class::Meta::Class object is

0.30  2004-04-19T23:44:26
      - Added semi-affordance accessor generation.
      - Modified arguments passed to check code references. Now, in addition
        to the new value to be assiged to the attribute, the object being
        assigned to and the Class::Meta::Attribute object that describes the
        attribute are passed. If the attribute is a class attribute, then the
        second argument is a hash reference containing the existing value and
        the name of the package.
      - Thanks the the presence of the attribute object as an argument to
        check code references, the name of the attribute is now included in
        exceptions thrown for "once" and "required" attributes.
      - Added "class" accessors to Constructor, Attribute, and Method, to
        return the Class object for the class in which the constructor,
        attribute, or method was defined.
      - Added "error_handler" parameter to Class::Meta->new to be called for
        fatal errors.
      - Added default_error_handler() class method to Class::Meta to act
        as the default error handler when no "error_handler" parameter is
        passed to Class::Meta->new.

0.20  2004-01-28T22:03:09
      - Added more documentation to the Class::Meta synopsis that highlights
        the generated constructor and attribute accessors, as well as the
        introspection API.
      - Fixed documentation to reflect that the introspection class method
        installed in a generated class is called my_class(), not class().
        Thanks to Marcus Ramberg for the spot!
      - Documented the "required" attribute of Class::Meta::Attribute.
      - Added "once" attribute to Class::Meta::Attribute. This attribute
        indicates whether an attribute value can be set to a defined value
        only once.
      - Renamed the call_get() and call_set() methods of
        Class::Meta::Attribute to simply get() and set().

0.14  2004-01-21T01:00:18
      - Private and protected constructors generated by Class::Meta are now
        truly private and protected.
      - Class::Meta no longer generates constructors when they're added with
        create => 0.

0.13  2004-01-20T21:36:30
      - For default accessors, object and class attribute accessors were
      - Private and protected attributes now are truly private and protected
        if they're constructed by the accessor builder packages that come with
      - The call_get() and call_set() methods of Class::Meta::Attribute and
        the call() methods of Class::Meta::Constructor and
        Class::Meta::::Method now use goto to execute the true methods. This
        removes the call to call_get() or call_set() or call() from the call
        stack trace, and makes it possible for the private and protected
        checks to always work properly.

0.12  2004-01-17T20:25:58
      - The class "name" attribute now defaults to be the same as the key
        if it is not explicitly set.
      - The constructor generated by Class::Meta no longer attempts to set
        class attributes.
      - A package name now must be passed to the Class::Meta::Constructor's
        call() method as the first argument. This is allow for proper support
        for inheritance.
      - Accessor generators now create accessors for class attributes as
        class attributes, instead of as object attributes.

0.11  2004-01-15T03:47:33
      - Added link to for reporting bugs.
      - Added distribution information to all modules.
      - The package attribute now properly defaults to the package
        calling Class::Meta->new.
      - Class::Meta::Class->construtors now works.

0.10  2004-01-09T03:56:11
      - Initial public release.
