Changes for version 1.6 - 2020-12-02

  • Fixed confusing Changes entry about Perl's licensing terms.
  • Added optional Changes testing (skipped unless AUTHOR_TESTING).
  • Reformatted Changes file as per CPAN::Changes::Spec.
  • Added optional POD coverage testing (skipped unless AUTHOR_TESTING).
  • Added optional Perl::Critic testing (skipped unless AUTHOR_TESTING).
  • Made code Perl::Critic clean.
  • Added optional POD testing (skipped unless AUTHOR_TESTING).
  • Included GitHub repository URLs in metadata now that source code has been uploaded to GitHub (as of version 1.5).
  • Included META.json file in addition to META.yml.
  • Set minimum required ExtUtils::MakeMaker version to 6.64 to ensure that all parameters used are supported, to save jumping through hoops to support earlier versions. (This should not be a problem since ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.64 is easily installed into Perl 5.8.1 and above, that being the whole point of the new choice of minimum supported Perl version.)
  • Set minimum required Perl version to 5.8.1. This is in line with the minimum requirement of the "Perl Toolchain".
  • Corrected typo in a comment. [<>, CPAN RT#86336]
