Changes for version 1.3.1 - 2022-10-01

  • Fixed a bug introduced in v1.3.0 where the Postgres engine would always pass the port to `psql`, thus ignoring the `PGPORT` environment variable. Thanks to Cam Feenstra for the spot (#675)!
  • Fixed test failures on OSes where the local time zone cannot be determined. Thanks to Slaven Rezić for the test reports, and to Dave Rolsky for the solution (#672).
  • Updated the MySQL deploy/revert lock to be specific to the target database. This allows multiple instances of Sqitch to run at the same time on the same server as long as they're connecting to different databases. Thanks to Dmytro Kh for the report and discussion of the options (#670).
  • Fixed test failures where DBD::Mem was not installed. Likely only occurred on some CPAN Testers nodes. Thanks to Slaven Rezić for those (#673).
  • Banned the backslash character (`\`) in change and tag names. It would be ignored on Unix-style systems, but create unexpected subdirectories on Windows systems.
  • Banned the slash character (`/`) in tag names. They're still allowed in change names to enable script organization, but can wreak havoc when used in tag names. Thanks to @ewie for the report (#680)!
