$Id: Changes,v 1.14 2005/12/22 14:13:47 mike Exp $ Revision history for Perl extension Net::Z3950::ZOOM. 1.01 Thu Dec 22 14:13:34 GMT 2005 - Place some CODE: chunks in "ZOOM.xs" inside curly brackets so that the declarations they begin with are at the start of the block. This avoid mixed code/declarations. (The "correct" solution is to use INIT: clauses in the XS file, but they don't seem to work: the code in them is slapped down right next to the CODE:, so declarations are not acceptable there either.) - Add new function Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_scan1(), which uses a query object to indicate the start-term. This opens the way for using CQL queries for scanning once the underlying ZOOM-C code supports this. - NOTE BACKWARDS-INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: The ZOOM::Connection method scan() is renamed scan_pqf(), and a new scan() method is introduced which calls the underlying scan1() function. Thus the scan()/scan_pqf() dichotomy is consistent with that between search()/search_pqf(). - The tests t/15-scan.t and t/25-scan.t now also test for scanning by CQL query. To support these tests, a new files is added to the distribution, "samples/cql/pqf.properties" - Remove nonsensical clause about CQL sort-specifications from the documentation. - Add new function Net::Z3950::ZOOM::query_cql2rpn(), for client-side CQL compilation. - Add new ZOOM::Query::CQL2RPN class, encapsulating CQL compiler functionality as a Query subclass. - Add two new error-codes, CQL_PARSE and CQL_TRANSFORM, returned by the client-side CQL facilities. - The test-scripts t/12-query.t and t/22-query.t are extended to also test client-side CQL compilation. - Add all the yaz_log*() functions within the Net::Z3950::ZOOM namespace. - Add new ZOOM::Log class for logging, providing aliases for the functions in the Net::Z3950::ZOOM layer. - Add diagnostic set to rendering of Exception objects. - Documentation added for CQL compilation and logging. 1.00 Wed Dec 14 11:18:33 GMT 2005 - First distributed version. 0.01 Fri Oct 7 16:14:20 2005 - original version; created by h2xs 1.23 with options --name=Net::Z3950::ZOOM --compat-version=5.8.0 \ --omit-constant --skip-exporter --skip-ppport \ --autogen-xsubs yaz/zoom.h -lyaz -lxml2 -- To be done in future releases: - Fix Net::Z3950::ZOOM::record_get() to use a struct datachunk _when_ appropriate, e.g. for "render" but probably not for "database" and "syntax". - Support for asynchronous multiplexing: implement ZOOM::event() and test ZOOM::Connection::last_event(). - Write example programs for "samples" direction. - Create old-style Net::Z3950 compatibility layer. - Fix memory leaks in callback functions for option sets. - Fix limitation that option-set callback functions must be specified as strings containing package-qualified function names. - Fix test-suite to actually send the "drop" packages once Zebra's been fixed so this doesn't current the store.
