Recent Entries

Tuesday 28th June 2016

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-DateTime-Format-Mail to 0.403 in Rawhide:

    • Use DateTime->set_locale instead of ->set to set the locale; using ->set may actually change the local time unintentionally (GH#2)

  • Updated perl-IO-Socket-SSL to 2.029 in Rawhide:

    • Add del_session method to session cache

    • Use SSL_session_key as the real key for the cache and not some derivate of it, so that it works to remove the entry using the same key

  • Updated perl-Test-Simple to 1.302035 in Rawhide:

    • Fix some breakage info
    • POD fixes

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-IO-Socket-SSL to 2.029 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-Moo to 2.002004:

    • Fixed another case of local functions interfering with generated code (CPAN RT#115655)

    • Prevent infinite recursion on some Moose metaclass inflation errors

Monday 27th June 2016

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-MetaCPAN-Client to 1.016000 in Rawhide:

    • Added support for 'all' filters type 'files'

    • http → https

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-Coro to 6.511:

    • swap_sv swapping order was not symmetrical, causing wrong swaps when swap_sv was used multiple times on the same sv in the same thread

    • swap_sv calls can now be undone by calling it again with the same variables

    • swap_sv calls will now be undone in async_pool threads

    • Split Coro::Semaphore::up/adjust into separate xs functions for better error reporting, at slight code size increase

    • (libcoro) arm assembly support; please test and report

    • Adjust to PL_savestack changes in perl 5.24 (adapted from the debian patch, which unfortunately gets it wrong)

    • Since various broken or deficient patches float around to work around the vtbl API breakage in perl, let's provide our own workaround, which seems to be much less invasive and more compatible than the approaches seen so far

    • Work around assertion failure in perl_destruct on 5.24

    • Simplify and speed up __DIE__ and __WARN__ handling

  • Updated perl-DateTime-Locale to 1.05:

    • Instead of using the DATA handle to get at as-yet-unloaded locale data in DateTime::Locale::Data, we now read the raw data into memory once, and use eval to turn it into Perl data structures as a particular locale is requested, which may fix a problem where reading from the DATA handle somehow returned the wrong chunk of data (or overlapped multiple locales); the downside is that loading DateTime::Locale now uses an additional 4MB of memory on my system, regardless of how many individual locales are instantiated (GH#3)

  • Updated perl-MetaCPAN-Client to 1.016000 as per the Fedora version

    • Fix nested TODO handling of diags (GH#684)

Thursday 23rd June 2016

  • Updated perl-Child to 0.013 in Rawhide:

    • Fix Windows
  • Updated perl-Test-Version to 2.04 in Rawhide:

    • Bump requirement for a newer version of Module::Metadata (the version that comes with Perl 5.14 cannot handle package block syntax)

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-Child to 0.013 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-Module-Runtime-Conflicts to 0.003:

    • Makefile.PL now also checks for incompatible Moose versions

  • Updated perl-Moo to 2.002003:

    • Prevent local functions with same names as core functions from interfering with generated code (CPAN RT#115529)

    • Work around nmake bug that corrupts commands that include slashes (CPAN RT#115518)

    • Fix tests to work when lexical features are enabled outside of our control (such as with cperl)
    • Fix tests on perl 5.6
  • Updated perl-Test-Version to 2.04 as per the Fedora version
