The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.

Changes for version 0.052 - 2010-04-02

  • Documentation/Sample Code/Test Suite:
  • miniswarm tests are given less time before giving up
  • 'bad' test (checking if port was opened twice... which seems to be okay on some systems) has been removed
  • Removing t/900_data/950_torrents/951_single.torrent which was used to test large file support (caused "Out of memory!" errors on smokers with limited resources)
  • Notes:
    • This will probably be the last 'stable' version before Net::BitTorrent is rewritten. Stuff in TODO.pod will be expanded and used as a roadmap
