Distribution upgraded

2.01 (07 July 2002)

New testing method MLDBM::_compare($a, $b) used in t/*.t scripts to verify data structures are identical. In perl 5.8.0 RC2, the order of hashes changed, making the prior hard coded test case string comparisons invalid, so created this more flexible method for testing that should work in future releases, without relying on specific hash ordering.

2.00 (10 May 1998)

Added support for multiple serializing interfaces. (courtesy Raphael Manfredi <>)

Split serializer wrappers into multiple files, and regularized the interface some. Underlying TIEHASH object and serializer can now be set at runtime (with care).

Miscellaneous pod tweaks.
