Changes for version 0.087_03

  • !! DEVELOPER RELEASE !!
  • NEW FEATURES:
  • The "add" command now has an experimental --no-index option to exclude certain packages from the index. This is useful when Pinto finds packages in your distribution that it should not. Thanks to Todd Chapman for the great suggestion.
  • The "diff" command now accepts revision IDs as arguments, so you can compare any two arbitrary revisions. Revision IDs can be truncated to uniqueness. This feature was generously funded by a grant from TPF.
  • ENHANCEMENTS:
  • Optimized some queries to make it faster to register packages on a stack. In the best cases, performance has improved by about 150%. But in the average case, the limiting factor is fetching and unpacking the upstream distribution, so you'll only see a slight improvement there.
  • BUG FIXES:
  • You can now edit the commit message when pinto is reading input from a file or pipe, as long as STDOUT is connected to a terminal. You can always just use the -m or -M options if you don't want to edit the message.
  • INTERNAL CHANGES:
  • Pinto no longers stores the file path and SHA digest of every package it sees in the META, since many distributions on CPAN don't have the right paths in there anyway. This allows Pinto to index some (technically broken) distributions that it otherwise couldn't. Pinto was never really using this information anyway, and it will probably be removed from the schema entirely in the next major upgrade cycle.
