Revision history for Perl module Module::Release

2.133 2023-08-03T19:22:04Z
	* Add GitHub to the bugtracker meta data so MetaCPAN doesn't point
	to (Tux, #48)

2.131 2023-07-24T05:14:42Z
	* fix version constraint when release script loads module
	* various distro cleanups

2.129 2023-03-06T10:46:09Z
	* More careful handling of CPAN version in the case this is the 
	first release

2.128 2021-03-11T03:09:57Z
	* promote to a user release.

2.127_04 2021-02-26T15:13:29Z
	* Tell the tests where to find t/lib/, since v5.26
	turned off the dot in @INC.

2.127_03 2021-02-25T20:43:48Z
	* Silence a warning from using a missing CPAN version

2.127_02 2021-02-25T20:28:34Z
	* Handle a problem looking for a new module on CPAN

2.127_01 2021-02-13T12:11:43Z
	* Test the new Changes UTF-8 stuff - åü⏎☃

2.127 2021-02-13T11:46:58Z
	* Move dist testing past quicker-to-fail sanity checks
	* Check that the release will have a version larger than what is
	already on CPAN. There's a new ::MetaCPAN plugin for that.
	* Add Module::Release::Git 1.016 features to control which branch
	can release and set the commit message format from config
	* Clean up a lot of the output, adding more section headers as
	the process moves through its stages
	* see the "Configuration" section in script/release for what's
	new. Most things should be fine even if you don't have the latest
	* release now sets standard input to UTF-8.

2.126_01 2021-01-29T18:36:09Z
	* Fix the code to look back in git history to find the latest
	* Update the Mojo code to upload to PAUSE. This means the min Perl
	is now v5.16.

	are modest. Time::Piece comes with Perl.
	* Tux added a `require` field to configuration
	* Dump Travis CI but add Github Actions
	* Add "required" .releaserc entry to test perls before you use them

	* Test on AppVeyor, fix other minor dist things

2.123_01 2017-04-18T09:24:25Z

	RT # 112252

2.12 2016-01-26T19:00:52Z

	* Update Mojo::UserAgent for transactor changes in 4.50

2.07 2013-12-17
	* Bump to a release version

2.06_06 2013-12-14
	* Update for Mojo 4 (not that big of a change :)

	* Don't try so hard to check perl on Windows

2.06_04 2013-02-10
	* PAUSE turned off FTP, so I switch to using a Mojo web uploader

2.06_02 2012-07-18
	* Add =encoding to Pod sections to avoid new Pod::Simple warnings

2.06_01 2011-12-19

2.06 2011-12-19
	* Bumping to a stable release

	* Handle point versions RT  #72845 (WULEE)

2.05_06 2011-07-24
	* Handle the latest in LWP, using LWP::Protocol::https and
	the new CACertOrg::CA to supply the cert for PAUSE.

	file, it the case of a failed upload.

2.05_05 2011-07-16
	* Handle Module::Build
	* Some Windows stuff is still broken

2.05_04 2011-04-18
	* Add LWP::UserAgent prereq: now not in the same distro

2.05_02 2011-04-16
	* Two features from H.Merijn Brand: if a test fails under
	debugging, try harder with prove
	* Add the allow_glob_in_perls to specify a pattern for paths
	for the perls option.

2.05_01 2009-09-22
	* Let's start checking MANIFEST to ensure we didn't forget
	anything. This might be annoying the first time since
	make manifest might re-order your file and you have to
	recommit it.

2.05 2009-06-15
	* Fixes to SVN status pattern matching
	* Set build file names in config, if you like

2.04_03 2009-06-10

	* Use a platform-specific version of devnull

2.03 2009-03-22
	* Treat Test::Prereq and Module::CPANTS::Analysse as
	optional dependencies. They were before, but now you get
	a nicer error message.

2.02 2009-02-07
	* Fix the command runner for the is otherwise
	neglected since I've stopped using SVN but I will accept
	* The run.t patch undefs PATH before it looks for commands

2.01 2008-11-25
	A bump to a release version

2.00_07 2008-11-06
	* Changes the methods with "cvs" in the name to be "vcs" instead.
	The old names came from the time I used CVS, but no one does
	that anymore. "vcs" is for Version Control System.

2.00_06 2008-11-05
	* Fix up a test to work even if the system error message isn't

2.00_05 2008-11-04
	* Added the -a switch to turn on $ENV{AUTOMATED_TESTING}
	* Added the -p switch to turn off prereq tests
	* Added automated_testing to possible config directives
	* The kwalitee directive is now skip_kwalitee
	* There's a skip_prereqs directive

2.00_03 2008-08-15
	* Distro cleanup, no big whoop

2.00_02 2008-08-09
	* The beginning of the new Module::Release. Lots of stuff
	moved into separate modules to act as mixins. There is a
	lot more testing.
	* This is still a developer release, so don't get too
	attached to anything just yet.

1.22 2008-04-06
	* BUG FIX: Move kwalitee testing after normal testing, and have
	the kwalitee tests make their own dist to ensure that they
	have it.

1.21 2008-04-05
	* NEW FEATURE: Now test with multiple perls!

1.20 2007-11-20
	* fix dist_version to handle dev versions. Previously it was
	ignoring the _\d+, so the version that showed up in changes
	didn't have the _\d+.

1.19 2007-11-11
	* Sagar Shah noticed I tried to call _die() before I used bless().
	Oops. Fixed.
	* If you have older versions before I started using _die(), you don't
	need to rush to get this version. If you got the latest to use
	Module::Release::Git, you need to upgrade.

1.18 2007-10-27
	* distro cleanups after moving from CVS to SVN
	* Changes from Torsten Schoenfeld to make get_readme and get_changes
	subclassable (that is, call them as methods like everything else)
	* Require Perl 5.006. I haven't done anything intentional to not
	use Perl 5.005, but I don't want to support that. With CPAN Testers
	going back farther in time now, I have to draw the line somewhere
	just to manage my time well. :)

1.17_01 2007-10-03
	* The output and debugging filehandles come from methods now.
	This makes it easier to move the output around, or even turn
	it off. I wanted this for Module::Release::Git. The interface
	has some new features, but should be compatible with the older
	* Added some git support to release(1). This should refactor
	itself out in various ways, but I just need the support right
	now without going through all the work to make it nice nice.

1.17 2007-08-13
	* distro cleanups - no need to upgrade

1.16 2007-05-03
	* Fix for test suite problem

1.14 2007-03-16
	* use a temp file for cookies
	* don't test script if M::R::Subversion isn't installed

1.13 2007-02-22
	* Updated the distro for PAUSE indexing problems (my fault)
	* release(1) now detects SVN and loads Module::Release::Subversion
	to handle it (that's a separate distro, though).
	* release(1) now uses Module::CPANTS::Analyze's
	to check kwalitee. That's also a separate distro.

1.12 2006-09-25

	* Changes from Ken Williams

	* New 'makefile_PL' and 'makefile' parameters to the new()
	method allow Module::Build-based distributions to work more
	smoothly - set them to 'Build.PL' and 'Build', respectively.

	* The 'release_subclass' parameter to new() is un-deprecated

	* Subclasses previously could not override the new() method
	when invoked via the 'release_subclass' mechanism, now they can.

	* When running under a passive FTP mode, we were telling the
	server to go into passive mode twice, which causes some
	servers to bomb out.  This is fixed.

	* The error message when an FTP PUT operation failed has been

	* System calls made during the release process will now read
	their underlying STDOUT and STDERR using read(), which helps
	you see what's going on when there are interactive steps.

	* The getpass() method will now check for CPAN_PASS and
	SF_PASS values previously set as member variables.  This
	helps users who might want to, for example, look their
	values up in the OS X keychain using a custom subclass.

	* Fixed a couple of minor POD formatting errors.

1.10 2006-06-08
	* Distro cleanup (removed sf_login.t test), fixed doc bug about
	PAUSE, cleansed POD. No need to upgrade.

1.08 2006-05-20
	* Added MANIFEST checking feature. If `make manifest` has to change
	MANIFEST, check_manifest() dies. You'll have to check in MANIFEST
	before you can go on anyway, so you might as well stop and take a
	look at it (and maybe update MANIFEST.SKIP too). I needed this
	because although I had a lot of pod_coverage tests lying about,
	they never made it into the dists because I never added them to
	MANIFEST. Stoopid me.
	* This updates the release(1) script too. Make sure you want this
	feature before you overwrite your old release(1).

1.07 2006-05-17
	* Minor updates to the distro - no code changes. No need to upgrade

0.25 2004-12-17
	* No changes to functionality.
	* Released only because I (Andy) deleted the latest version,
	  because I thought brian had newer ones, when he didn't.
	  This meant that the indexer got all confused.  I hope this
	  stops people from now wondering "Where did Module::Release go?"
	* Modernized t/pod.t
	* Made tests in t/load.t more inclusive
	* Updated the Makefile.PL

0.24 2003-11-29
	* fixed a problem in Module::Release's check_cvs routine where
	it was not checking each line of output

0.23 2003-06-22
	* All output now goes to the screen if --debug is on.  Thanks to
	Ken Williams.
	* release will show the user all STDOUT of the subprocesses
	  whenever debug is on.  This will prevent the machine from waiting
	  for a response from you because you don't know it's there.

0.22 2003-04-09
	* release will not run if there are any switch errors

	* Added many error checks in ftp_upload.

	* Added some docs on how to find sf_group_id and sf_release_id.

	* Removed a "last CVS" in cvs() method.  It would have
  	  blown up if someone didn't have a CVS directory.

	* Renamed perl() method to build_makefile()

	* Renamed cvs() to check_cvs()

	* Added basic POD docs for the functions

0.21 2003-03-29
	Many more patches, thanks to Ken Williams.  I fear it won't be
	long until Module::Release is sending & receiving mail.

	* release only checks for passwords if they're necessary.
	  This means you don't have to have a password if you're running
	  "release -t" to test.

	* A more complete dependency list in Makefile.PL

	* A new 'release_subclass' config file entry lets you subclass
	  Module::Release.  There's an example in the docs.

	* After FTP upload, we check to see whether the two versions of
	  the file have the same size.	This should catch my FTP-ing bug.

	* The cvs_tag() method now calls make_cvs_tag() to make the
	  tag string.  This lets me override make_cvs_tag() in a subclass.

0.20 2003-03-26
	* Moved all the real work into Module::Release.  Thanks to
	Ken Williams for doing all the dirty work on this.

	* Fixed the Test::Pod dependency

0.16 2003-03-19
	* No new features
	* Removed the dependency on Test::Pod

0.15 2003-03-14
	* Support for the PERL environment variable.
	* Cleaned up tabs 'n' spaces in the source.  Shouldn't
	  affect anything in how you use the program.

0.14 2003-03-12
	* 0.13 is an incorrect distro.  This is what you want.

0.13 2003-03-12
	Most of these changes are from Max Maischein.  Cross-platform
	compatibility should be a lot better.  Thanks, Max!

	* Prompts for passwords that are not set in the environment.

	* Fixed a bug in checking for required fields

	* Uses "$Config{make}" instead of "make".

	* Moved all backticks into a subroutine "run", that also echoes
	  the command if "-d" is set.

	* Added a check whether the file-to-distribute actually exists,
	  before making the ftp connection.

	* The regex to guess the distname from the tardist output
	  needed some whitespace added to work with Win32.

	* Added support for passive FTP.

0.12 2003-03-06
	Most of the changes in this revision are from Chris Nandor:

	* Add basic help page

	* Add more debugging information (dump `` output)

	* Add command-line switches for help, debug, and test (exits after
	  testing phase)

	* Allow not using either the CPAN or (but not both)

	* Check cvs exit status

	* Do not update CVS automatically; release will exit if it sees a U
	  anyway, so might as well just let the developer handle it

	* Allow modification of "release name" via regex in .releaserc

	* Update docs

	* General cleanup

0.11 2003-03-03
	* Patches to make this less brian-specific.  Thanks to Chris
	  Nandor for taking it upon himself to do so.

	* Removed a lot of dependencies on external modules.

0.10 2002-12-11
	* prompt for comments to put in Changes, commit Changes, and
	use comments in SourceForge change log notes

	* guess the release file name from 'make dist' so the first
	argument is now optional

	* put the right date in the SourceForge release date
