Changes for version 2.18

  • Backport from bleadperl before 5.16.0 release
  • base no longer sets a module's $VERSION to "-1" when a module it loads does not define a $VERSION.
  • base no longer internally skips loading modules it has already loaded and instead relies on require to inspect %INC.

Modules

  • base - Establish an ISA relationship with base classes at compile time
  • fields - compile-time class fields
