[ANNOUNCE] CPANPLUS 0.043 released.
Message ID:
I am elated to announce that CPANPLUS 0.043 has been uploaded to CPAN.

This long-awaited version is mainly a bug fix version, and is likely
to be the final one in the 0.04x series, since new developments are
all directed at the 0.050 branch.

It is also available at:
    MD5 (CPANPLUS-0.043.tar.gz) = bb820df83fc681cfaf1dd05c3ceb590b

* New Features

 - Supports "sudo" during install, so users will not need to run
   cpanp as root anymore.

 - Ships with a MIRRORED.BY just in case is down.

 - Supports Archive::Tar 1.0 and later.

 - Supports's machine-readable metadata in YAML.

 - Supports detached signatures in the form of Foo-Bar-0.01.tar.gz.sig.

* Bug fixes

 - Ownership in files extracted by Archive::Tar could be
   inconsistent when running as root.

 - In messages, singular/plural handling via %quant() was broken.

 - Many bugfixes uncovered by hash randomisation; in particular,
   the build order for dependencies are now guaranteed to happen
   in alphabetical order.

 - Some versions of "curl" do not support --remote-time uption, 
   caused spurious error messages.

 - Multiple instances of CPANPLUS::Backend objects used to cause
   referential corruptions in storable images.

 - A number of ommisions and typos in CPANPLUS::TesterGuide
   was found and fixed.

 - t/1-basic.t used to fail when the user refuses to run the
   first-time setup.  It will not be run now.
Thanks to Jos for his great support and patience, and much kudos
for last-minute testing done by many mailing list members.

Let's look forward to the latest and greatest 0.050 release now. :-)
