Revision history for Class-AutoClass 1.56 2013-10-05 No functional changes Update depdendencies Fix boilerplate & pod tests 1.55 2012-11-25 Added test for version number in POD Changes to Build.PL Removed redundant 'dist_version_from' param Added Module::Build to configure_requires Changed create_makefile_pl from deprecated 'passthrough' to 'small' Fixed test failures caused by hash key randomization in perl 5.17.6 autoclass.011.inconsistent.t, autoclass.101.no_use_parent.t 1.54 2010-08-22 Fixed bug causing __OVERRIDE__ not to work correctly in base classes. Setting __OVERRIDE__ in a base class did not change the value of $self passed to _init_self in subclasses. The net effect was to lose all the initialization done in subclasses. sigh! how did this survive so long?? 1.53 2010-01-06 Now works to use CODE or GLOB refs as DEFAULTS Fixed version number for dependency Storable in Build.PL 1.52 2009-12-04 Changed handling of %AUTODB=0 and %AUTODB=1 in anticipation of Class::AutoDB 1.10. Does not functionally change Class::AutoClass 1.51 2009-11-19 Tightened dependency for Test::Deep (now require version 0.098 instead of 0), because this is first version that defines cmp_details and deep_diag. Thanks to the CPAN Testers for finding this!! Changed test file t/autoclassUtil.pm to manually import cmp_details and deep_diag, because not exported by Test::Deep until version 0.104. 1.50 2009-11-15 See changes for 1.49_02, 1.49_01 1.49_02 2009-11-14 - Trial release on the way to 1.50 Fixed dependencies in Build.PL Removed unused dependencies from tests 1.49_01 2009-11-13 - Trial release on the way to 1.50 Brings CPAN version up-to-date with version used internally New features: - 'declare' can be called without class parameter Bug fixes: - if 'new' called from subclass via SUPER::new, 'new' retains object from subclass rather than creating new one; this is a rare occurence - defaults for class attributes set at declare-time, not by 'new' - removed undocumented 'class' method since it pollutes namespace unreasonably - caught error when a class does not 'use' its base class, and base class cannot be loaded because of compile errors - version number conforms to Perl standard 1.0 2006-04-07 first stable version 0.1 2006-01-04 - initialization strategy changed. instead of init'ing class by class down the hierarchy, it's now done all at once - fixed many bugs in default initialization - set_attributes always calls setter method - added check for super classes not yet 'used'. caution: this only works if people follow the Perl convention of placing module Foo in file Foo.pm. Else, there's no easy way to translate a classname into a string that can be 'used' - fixed bug to auto-register subclasses that did not set %AUTODB 0.093 Tue Oct 25 16:02:24 PDT 2005 - new override capability (for returning an instance of another object) and tests to cover new functionality - added nullable functionality, so that an AutoClass object can return undef 0.092 Tue May 31 17:40:32 PDT 2005 - changed AutoDB require in AutoClass.pm to AutoDB::Object (bug: utility classes were forced to 'use Class::AutoDB::Object' - changed prereq syntax in Makefile.pl to just check for lib existance 0.091 Mon Apr 18 09:22:47 PDT 2005 - removed Data::Dumper dependency - removed versions from dependencies in Makefil.PL 0.09 Wed Sep 1 12:11:24 PDT 2004 - Class::AutoDB::auto_register now takes a Class::AutoClass::Args object as an arg 0.08 Tue Aug 17 10:36:06 PDT 2004 - missed some test files in the 0.07 distribution (oops) 0.07 Mon Aug 16 18:04:12 PDT 2004 - changes to accomodate Class::AutoDB refactor 0.05 Mon Feb 23 11:12:43 PST 2004 - supressed a bunch of warnings throw when using -w flag - use Storable added back to AutoClass 0.04 Thu Feb 19 09:39:57 PST 2004 - removed Clone dependency - refactored AutoDB hooks 0.03 Mon Jan 12 17:13:33 PST 2004 - more documentation changes - removed Class::WeakSingleton dependency 0.02 Tues 06 Jan 18:03:38 PST 2004 - some documentation changes 0.01 Mon Dec 22 17:28:49 PST 2003 - original version.
