Changes for version 2.61

  • Helios 2.61 is a bugfix release:
  • helios.pl: Fix for [RT81709].
  • helios.pl: Fix for [RT81914].
  • Helios::Service & Helios::Job: Patch for [RT79690]. This bug actually appears to be caused by LOB binding problems with the underlying DBD module. This problem can cause a loss of jobs in the job queue under certain circumstances, so if you are experiencing this problem you are encouraged to upgrade to this version and upgrade your DBD module to the latest version. Consult the rt.cpan.org page for this bug for more information.
  • Makefile.PL: Changes for proper version handling of LICENSE. Additions so the generated META.* files will have website, bugtracking, and GitHub information for sites like MetaCPAN and search.cpan.org.
