version 0.016; 2017-10-17

  * port t/taint.t to Perl 5.27.5, where re-requiring an already-loaded
    module doesn't trigger tainting

  * skip t/taint.t if the perl empirically doesn't perform taint checks
    but the script got run anyway (which happens with an unsupported
    configuration of the Perl core which some people are using in the
    absence of a supported no-taint configuration)

  * in t/taint.t, use $^X rather than $ENV{PATH} as the primordial
    tainted value to taint a string being tested

  * in documentation, use four-column indentation for all verbatim

  * in META.{yml,json}, point to public bug tracker

  * in META.json, specify type of public repository

version 0.015; 2017-07-16

  * update test suite to not rely on . in @INC, which is no longer
    necessarily there from Perl 5.25.7

  * in documentation, warn about the security problem with

  * declare correct version for Test::More dependency

  * generate "traditional" style of compatibility Makefile.PL, to
    permit building in environments that don't support Build.PL or

version 0.014; 2014-02-06

  * bugfix: suppress any CORE::GLOBAL::require override, where possible,
    to avoid use_package_optimistically() being misled into treating
    missing modules as broken

  * bugfix: in use_module() and use_package_optimistically(), pass a
    supplied VERSION parameter through for the version check even if it
    is undef

  * tighten use_package_optimistically()'s recognition of can't-locate
    errors (the same way that has recently been tightened),
    so that, when a module fails to load because a module that it uses
    isn't available, the outer module will be perceived as broken rather
    than missing

  * update documentation notes about the state of Unicode handling for
    module names

  * in META.{yml,json}, point to public git repository

version 0.013; 2012-02-16

  * fix false failure of the test for lack of unintended dependencies
    that occurred on systems using a

version 0.012; 2012-02-12

  * work around Perl core bug [perl #68590] regarding leakage of %^H
    into modules being loaded

  * work around Perl core bug that made a failed module loading appear
    successful when re-requiring the same module

  * duplicate is_string() from Params::Classify, rather than importing it,
    to avoid circular dependency problems (affecting both installation
    and runtime)

  * duplicate minimal exporting behaviour from Exporter, and avoid using
    the "feature", "warnings", "strict", and "parent" pragmata, to allow
    for possible future use of this module by any infrastructure module

  * document core bug workarounds

  * document module name syntax more prominently, and discuss the state
    of Unicode handling

  * tweak documentation of use_package_optimistically()

  * test behaviour with tainted module name

  * test lack of unwanted eval frame around require

  * give test modules more meaningful names

  * convert .cvsignore to .gitignore

version 0.011; 2011-10-24

  * bugfix: in require_module() and use_module(), work around a Perl
    core bug affecting Perl 5.8 and 5.10 that could pass the wrong
    context to the file scope of a required file, which breaks some
    modules; this bug would only rarely afflict the core's require()
    in situations where it would afflict require_module()

version 0.010; 2011-10-07

  * bugfix: in use_package_optimistically(), fix regexp interpolation
    that broke operation if the module was loaded from a path containing

version 0.009; 2011-10-04

  * new function module_notional_filename()

  * simplify behaviour of use_package_optimistically() to match simplified 2.18

version 0.008; 2011-05-16

  * change usage of Params::Classify functions to take advantage of
    custom ops in Params::Classify 0.012

  * use full stricture in test suite

  * in Build.PL, complete declaration of configure-time requirements

  * explicitly state version required of Params::Classify

  * include META.json in distribution

  * add MYMETA.json and MYMETA.yml to .cvsignore

version 0.007; 2010-03-19

  * add "check_" functions for argument checking

  * supply regexps to check module name and spec syntax

  * in "is_" functions, also cleanly handle non-string arguments

  * in require_module() (also affecting use_module()), call require()
    as a function (with appropriate name translation) instead of using
    string eval, to avoid unnecessary complication of exception handling

  * provide the "is_valid_" functions under shorter "is_" names

  * revise POD markup

  * check for required Perl version at runtime

  * in tests, supply test modules to avoid requiring unrelated math

  * in Build.PL, explicitly declare configure-time requirements

  * remove bogus "exit 0" from Build.PL

version 0.006; 2009-05-19

  * bugfix: avoid unreliable "\w" in regexps in code

  * document that module name syntax is restricted to ASCII

  * use simpler "parent" pragma in place of "base"

  * in documentation, use the term "truth value" instead of the less
    precise "boolean"

  * use full stricture in Build.PL

version 0.005; 2007-09-17

  * bugfix: override any ambient $SIG{__DIE__} handler when using eval { }

  * use "base" pragma to import Exporter behaviour

  * test POD syntax and coverage, and rename an internal function to
    satisfy the coverage test

  * build with Module::Build instead of ExtUtils::MakeMaker

  * complete dependency list

  * include signature in distribution

  * in documentation, separate "license" section from "copyright" section

version 0.004; 2007-08-12

  * change choice of module to test use_package_optimistically(), because
    some old versions of Math::BigInt don't have a version number which
    was causing a false test failure

version 0.003; 2007-01-27

  * loosen tests to work with perl v5.9's changed diagnostics

version 0.002; 2006-06-15

  * new function use_package_optimistically() to duplicate the "base"
    pragma's quiet module loading

  * insert missing bracket in documentation for use_module()

version 0.001; 2004-10-29

  * new function use_module()

  * document return value of require_module()

  * more stringent tests for the return value of require_module()

  * explicitly declare lack of module dependencies in Makefile.PL

  * include Changes file

version 0.000; 2004-02-15

  * initial released version
