Monday 12th April 2021

Fedora Project

    • Fix compilation with C++ (GH#177)

  • Updated perl-Crypt-CBC to 3.02 in Rawhide:

    • CTR mode now requires the Math::Int128 module, which gives a ~5x performance boost over Math::BigInt

Thursday 8th April 2021

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-Data-HexDump to 0.04 in Rawhide:

    • Fixed the warnings from pack that the test suite was generating (CPAN RT#123226)

    • Moved hexdump script to eg/, so it won't be installed (CPAN RT#123224)

    • Added SEE ALSO, with links to lots of other hex dumpers

    • Removed indirect method use
    • SYNOPSIS wasn't a working example

Tuesday 6th April 2021

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-DateTime-Format-Strptime to 1.89 in F-33:

    • Fix tests for new failure caused by locale data changes in DateTime::Locale 1.29 (GH#28)

    • Added a warning about using locale-specific patterns; some of these patterns can change quite a bit as the locale data is updated, so using them for parsing does not produce stable results across time - this is what caused the test failures that this release fixes
  • This update was triggered by an update of perl-DateTime-Locale for F-33, which resulted in the original perl-DateTime-Format-Strptime package for F-33 failing its test suite if rebuilt

Local Packages

  • New package drive-google (0.4.0)

  • Cleaned up and rebuilt perl-File-pushd (1.016), perl-HTTP-Tiny (0.076), perl-namespace-autoclean (0.29), perl-Perl-Critic-Lax (0.013), perl-Test-Kwalitee (1.28) and perl-YAML-Tiny (1.73)
