Revision history for Perl suite Locale::Maketext Time-stamp: "2004-03-30 21:38:07 AST" 2004-03-30 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 1.09: * Moved the language-preference-detecting code into new module I18N::LangTags::Detect. Thanks to Autrijus Tang for catching some errors in the dist! 2004-01-19 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 1.08: * Corrected a one-line code bug in v1.07 that accidentally demoted all en-* tags in cases of lexicon-groups that had an en.pm but no en_*.pm. Thanks to Robert Spier for spotting this. Test added. So don't use v1.07! * Autrijus found some typoes in the TPJ article. Fixed.1 2004-01-11 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 1.07: Now uses a new and different rule for implicating superordinate language tags in accept-language lists. Previously, superordinates were just tacked onto the, so "en-US, ja", turned into "en-US, ja, en". However, this turned out to be suboptimal for many users of RT, a popular system using Maketext. The new rule is that a tag implicates superordinate forms right after it, unless those tags are explicitly stated elsewhere in the accept-languages list. So "en-US ja" becomes "en-US en ja". If you want "en" to be really lower, you have to actually state it there: "en-US ja en" is left as-is. The 04super.t and 05super.t tests in t/ have many many examples of this, including some strange corner cases. (In implementing this change, I also refactored some code in Maketext.pm, for hopefully improved readability. However, the above is the only actual change in behavior.) 2003-06-21 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 1.06: Now has "use utf8" to make the things work happily. Some fancy footwork is required to make this work under pre-utf8 perl versions. 2003-04-18 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 1.05: Different Makefile.PL, same .pm code. Jesse Vincent, Hugo van der Sanden, and Jarkko Hietaniemi encourage me to add this to the makefile: ($] < 5.008) ? () : ( INSTALLDIRS => 'perl'), so that when you install this on a recent version of perl (5.8 or later), the installation will overwrite the Maketext.pm in your core library directory. Email me if this produces trouble for any of you folks out there, okay? 2003-04-02 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 1.04: Implementing proper HTTP "tag;q=rank" parsing for get_handle. This should make all the difference for users/victims of the current version of Safari, which uses that syntax as well as inserts random languages with low q numbers. Thanks to Jesse Vincent and the whole RT junta for finding this. * Added more tests, now in t/ * Lots of typo fixes to Maketext.pm. Thanks to Evan A. Zacks for patient help in finding them all. 2001-06-21 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 1.03: basically cosmetic tweaks to the docs and the test.pl. 2001-06-20 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 1.02: EBCDIC-compatability changes courtesy of Peter Prymmer. Added [*,...] as alias for [quant,...] and [#,...] as an alias for [numf,...]. Added some more things to test.pl 2001-05-25 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 1.01: total rewrite. Docs are massive now. Including TPJ13 article now. 2000-05-14 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.18: only change, regrettably, is a better makefile, and it my email address has changed. 1999-03-15 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.17: Public alpha release Underdocumented.
