Local Packages

    • Moose::Exception's message attribute can now be any defined value, so as to allow for objects with a stringification overload in place of a string

    • Build-time compiler sanity checking is now done with ExtUtils::HasCompiler instead of ExtUtils::CBuilder

    • An increased Data::OptList version has been added to recommended prereqs, for greater speed (PR#123)

Local Packages

  • Rebuilt libspf2 (1.2.10) to flesh out the build dependencies

  • Updated perl-Carp-Clan to 6.06:

    • Patch tests failing due to 5.25.1+'s deprecated unquoted left brace in regex (CPAN RT#114537)

    • Avoid failure due to version self-check in 20pre560.t

  • Updated perl-Eval-Closure to 0.14 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-MCE to 1.708 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-Net-DNS to 1.06:

  • Updated perl-Regexp-Common to 2016052804:

    • When multiple delimiters are given, wrap the clauses inside a (?|); this makes it that, under -keep, the used delimiters are always in $2 and $4, and the string between the delimiters is always in $3

    • A requirement on 5.10.0 is now in place for the 'delimited' and 'quoted' patterns

    • The 'delimited' pattern now allows specifying closing delimiters that are different from the opening delimiters

    • Added a 'bquoted' pattern, which is a shortcut for using the 'delimited' pattern with 85 mirror imaged bracketing constructs (requires 5.014)

    • Eliminate the use of s///r

    • Fix issues with matching Roman numerals, where the pattern wasn't greedy enough (CPAN RT#104353)

    • Allow Roman numerals to match sequences of 4 Is, Xs, Cs and Ms; this raises the maximum number to be matched to 4999 (MMMMCMXCIX)

    • Fixed some POD nits
  • Updated perl-Test-Regexp to 2016052701 as per the Fedora version

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-Sysadm-Install to 0.47 in Rawhide:
