Changes for version 0.45

  • This is a recommended upgrade. There are no backwards-breaking changes, only bug fixes and enhancements.
  • Enhancements
    • Perl 5.8.4 and higher is now officially supported (5.8.7 was the previous minimum version).
    • Improved the way that connecting handles an interrupt signal. The driver now continues to attempt connection for the remaining duration of the timeout, instead of erroring out immediately.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed MaxKey and MinKey deserialization. Deserializing these types would seg fault if they hadn't been serialized previously.
    • Fixed Windows compilation (Taro Nishino)
    • Fixed MakeMaker arguments which were causing build problems on 5.14.
