Subject [ANNOUNCE] mod_perl 2.0.0-RC6
Date Wed, 04 May 2005 06:26:27 GMT

#* If everything goes well with this release it'll probably be the last RC 
and a week or so from now, we will get the 2.0.0 out. So this is your last 
chance to affect the new API, since after 2.0.0 release backwards 
incompatible API changes will not happen. Thank you for your testing and 
support. *#

...and now back to the scheduled programming

Please notice that something is wrong with the PAUSE/CPAN indexer, so you 
will not see the new package in the CPAN shell and friends, until Andreas 
fixes the problem.

The package is also available from: (pgp sig)

Changes since RC5:

fix Apache2::Build::dynamic_link_MSWin32 to generate a new line after
dynamic_link code in Makefile [Nick *** <>]

fix a warning in Apache2::Build::build_config() when building
with MP_STATIC_EXTS=1 [Nick *** <>]

improving DSO support on cygwin. The problem with cygwin is that it
behaves like windows (it's a posix layer over windows after
all). That's why we need to supply all symbols during linking time
just like on win32, by adding -lapr-0 -laprutil-0 and -lhttpd. On
windows, Apache supplies all the three libraries and it's easy to
link, but on cygwin apache doesn't play nice and doesn't supply
libhttpd. This change adds libapr and libaprutil. [Nick ***

improve the diagnostics when detecting mp2 < 1.999022, tell the user
which files and/or dirs need to be removed [Stas]

restore the DESTDIR support partially nuked by the apache2 rename
branch [Torsten Förtsch <torsten.foertsch>]

add APR::Status to provide functions corresponding to the
APR_STATUS_IS_* macros of apr_errno.h, especially those composites
like APR_STATUS_IS_EAGAIN(s) which are satisfied by more than one
specific error condition. Presently only APR_STATUS_IS_EAGAIN is
provided [Randy Kobes]

fix the generation of the manpages for .pm files from sub-projects
like ModPerl-Registry (previously was creating manpage files like
.::ModPerl::PerlRun.3) [Stas]

fix the pod2man'ification part of 'make install' (using POD2MAN_EXE
instead of POD2MAN Makefile macro) [Stas]
