Changes for version 0.07

  • IMPROVEMENTS
    • Added a small hack to the compare() method so that this module can be used with Set::Infinite.
    • Changed compare so that it can be used to compare two objects from different calendars that conform to the DateTime::Calendar interface.
    • Added explanation of exactly what calendar this module represents ("proleptic Gregorian calendar") to docs.
    • Added a Spanish language DateTime::Language subclass. Implemented by Flavio S. Glock.
    • Added support for specifying a language by ISO code ("en" or "pt-br") as well as the subclass name. Based on a patch from Erich Cholet.
    • Revamped the externally visible DateTime::Language API.
    • Objects created via the from_object() method are set to the time zone of the object from which they were created, if it has one, or UTC otherwise.
  • BUG FIXES
    • The from_object() method was broken because it retrieved a UTC datetime from the object passed in, and then created a new DateTime object using that UTC time as a _local_ time.
  • BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES
    • Removed stringification overloading. Having this in place made it impossible to create a strack trace in much of the time zone code.
    • Renamed the DateTime::Language->subclasses method as languages.
    • It is no longer possible to directly instantiate a DateTime::Language subclass, instead use:
      • my $en = DateTime::Language->new( language => 'English' );
    • The from_object() method no longer accepts a "time_zone" parameter.
