MakeMaker 6.57_08 (RC1)
Message ID:

This is release candidate 1 for ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.58 and hopefully will
make it into 5.14.0.

This release fixes an issue where MakeMaker would overwrite an installed XS
version of Scalar::Util with a reduced functionality pure Perl version.  It
will now only install Scalar::Util if it is missing entirely.  This fixes
issues with Compress::Zlib and breaking smokers.

    * Removed dependency on cc_runtime.h for VMS as well.

    * Changed how modules are bundled to avoid replacing XS version of
      Scalar::Util with a pure Perl version [github #4]

6.57_07  Fri, 25 Mar 2011 14:31:31 +1100
    * Generates META.json and MYMETA.json in addition to
      META.yml and MYMETA.yml (David Golden)
    * MYMETA has the runtime requirements made priority over META_*
      keys to allow generation of a correct META.* into the dist while
      still generating an accurate MYMETA.* locally (Matt S Trout)
    * Distributions should not depend on cc_runtime.h from core as it is
      only needed for B::CC
    * Now uses CPAN::Meta to generate META files.

    Bug Fixes
    * MYMETA.yml generation from META.yml actually works (Matt S Trout)
    * All required META fields are generated, even if they must be filled
      with "unknown" in place of real data (David Golden)

    Test Fixes
    * miniperl.t is no longer run outside of the perl core.  Its only relevant
      to bleadperl and requires no backwards compatibility [ 61868]

    * Rebase behaviour was improved (Reini Urban)
    * Build man pages (Reini Urban)

    * Spot valid lib files on Win32 when .a and .lib are mixed.
      (Christian Walde) [github #3]
    * Extensive testing of ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid for Win32
      (Christian Walde)
    * Implemented proper emulation of DOS escaping rules in ExtUtils::MM_Win32
      (Christian Walde)
