  • git-pbuilder 1.39
  • Term::ANSIColor 4.04

    The recent work I've been doing on podlators taught me that the build system of my other core module, Term::ANSIColor, was also doing the wrong thing when installed on Perl versions older than 5.11, even though no one had reported it. While I was there, I also switched back to ExtUtils::MakeMaker for the build system so that I'm testing the same build system that's also used for Perl core.

  • podlators 4.03

    There was a bug in the test suite of the last few versions of podlators that caused the test for devising dates to fail if POD_MAN_DATE or SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH were already set. Since I needed to fix that anyway, I decided to poke at the test suite some more, and made some good progress towards refactoring it, breaking out common code, and making it easier to add new tests. It's still in the stage where I've added more code than I've removed, but a lot of that is comments and the new code is much better.

  • git-pbuilder 1.38

    A minor update to the builder glue script for git-buildpackage. This release just has documentation fixes. I had missed that you no longer need explicit gbp.conf configuration because git-buildpackage now has a --git-pbuilder flag, and, when using that, there are a variety of other command-line flags to use instead of environment variables.
