The main improvements in this release is in EmbperlObject, which has
made more stable and reliable. Also an tutorial for EmbperlObject
has been added to the release.

Embperl gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML documents
and the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in
an object-oriented style. You can also take advantage of all the
usual Perl modules, (including DBI for database access) use their
functionality and easily include their output in your web pages.

Embperl has several features which are especially useful for creating
HTML, including dynamic tables, form field processing, URL
escaping/unescaping, session handling, and more.

See (english) or (german) for more information.

Enjoy Gerald

Changes since 1.3.0:

   - Added new Introduction to EmbperlObject written by
     Neil Gunton. See perldoc IntroEmbperlObject
   - Added new Tips and Tricks pod written by
     Neil Gunton. See perldoc TipsAndTricks. Anybody is invited
     to send me their own Tips and Tricks!
   - Added object and isa parameters to Execute, which allows to get an
     object reference for a certain file and set the Perl inherence
     hierachive. Ideas from Neil Gunton and Angus Lees.
   - Corrected a problem that leads to very strange errors when an
     Embperl sub is called from an in memory source (that is passed
     via the Execute input parameter). Spotted by Neil Gunton.
   - Make EmbperlObject work better with relative paths and drive letters
     on Windows. Based on a patch from Freddy Vulto.
   - Fixed a problem with the cache key, which could cause that the same
     file is compiled within different packages.
   - Fixed a problem that Embperl are in a wired state after an file upload
     has been interrupted. Spotted by Dirk Lutzebaeck.
   - Fixed a problem set @ISA is not correctly setup in case a file is
     compiled in the same package as the base file of EmbperlObject.
     Spotted by Neil Gunton.
   - Fixed problem with including ../foo.html in EmbperlObject. Spotted
     by Neil Gunton.
   - Added warning if @ISA is not correctly setup/corrupted.
   - Fixed a SIGSEGV that occurs when an reference to undef is returned
     from a [+ +] inside a URL.
   - Added warning to Makefile.PL, if File::Spec 0.82 isn't installed, which
     required by EmbperlObject.
   - Fixed "use of undefined value" warning in make test
