Archive::Zip 1.17_05 released. Testers wanted

[ #31409 ]

After testing ok, File::Remove 0.33 (identical to the dev release) is on it's way to CPAN.

Next up to finish, following complaints I'm not doing production releases and only dev releases, is Archive::Zip. I sucked this into my repository a while ago and I've been slowly overhauling it, but some of the changes, particularly making the test scripts saner, has taken me a while.

Also the code is pretty fragile in places, so I'm trying to move carefully.

Most notably, I've fixed a ton of Win32-specific filesystem issues in the code and tests, upgraded the test suite from Test.pm to Test::More, and re-organised both the class layout (classes now in seperate files) and documentation to comply with more modern styles (TODO is in the POD, etc etc).

This should make it easier to maintain in the future.

Since the changes are pretty major (although there's no API changes at all) I'm doing one last developer release before doing a production release.

If people could run cpan ADAMK/Archive-Zip-1.17_05 for me and report any remaining problems you might encounter, I'd appreciate it.

  • First you say you'r not going to release a public, non-developer release. Yet 26 hours later you announce you just did upload an official release???

    Do you still require betatesters?
    • Well not any more, obviously :)

      24 hours for people to install it and make sure the tests pass should be quite enough for this, since it doesn't have any new features or API changes.
