I've just uploaded PPI 1.117 to the CPAN.
This release contains a fixes for a number of things I broke in 1.116, but which did not have test cases (and so I didn't notice I had broken).
In particular, trivial compound statements should work again, so that something like...
print "Hello World!";
As PPI's biggest "client" (by user count at least) I probably need to get into the habit of installing Perl::Critic on the new release to make sure it still works.
That said, Perl::Critic seems to still be broken with 1.117, but the failures don't look obvious, and so my hope is that the critic guys can release a new version shortly which adapts to the PPI changes/fixes, or that they'll commit more test cases I haven't covered.
Either way, I apologise for the short period of instability to Perl::Critic, hopefully we'll get this stuff cleaned up shortly.
