Please test DAGOLDEN/Module-Build-0.35_13.tar.gz
Message ID:
This is Release Candidate 3.  Unless something pops up on some
less-commonly tested platform, I expect this to be the final release
candidate before Module::Build 0.36.

Craig B. or John M. -- I'd particularly like one more test from you on
VMS before I release 0.36 and write a patch for blead.

Anyone else with platforms not typically covered by CPAN Testers,
please test Module::Build 0.35_13 by hand and let me know if it fails.

Anyone who uses custom Module::Build subclasses, please test them with
this version.

Thank you!

-- David

P.S. Here is a list of changes since the last Release Candidate:

0.35_13 - Sat Dec  5 11:26:36 EST 2009

 - Protect against tempfile errors when checking ExtUtils::Installed

0.35_12 - Fri Dec  4 23:06:49 EST 2009

 Bug fixes:

 - Protect inc/ bundling tests against broken ExtUtils::Installed

0.35_11 - Thu Dec  3 11:07:44 EST 2009

 *** API CHANGE ***

 - The old API for prepare_metadata() has been restored to avoid breaking
   distributions that were overriding it (e.g. BioPerl), but the method
   has been marked deprecated and may be made private or may disappear in
   some future version of Module::Build. [David Golden]

 - A new get_metadata() method has been added as a simpler wrapper around
   the old, kludgy prepare_metadata() API. [David Golden] Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
