File::HomeDir::FreeDesktop - Testing and review required

[ #40082 ]

I've just uploaded a new 0.90_01 dev release of File::HomeDir which contains long-anticipated support for the freedesktop.org specification, meaning that File::HomeDir should now return correct locations for desktop, music, pictures, and user-data directories on modern Unix systems.

If you are interested in these changes, you may want to test the new release.

Please note that this will result in a change in behaviour on many Unix systems, as your backend will automatically switch from the generic File::HomeDir::Unix to the new File::HomeDir::FreeDesktop (based on the existence of the directory /etc/xdg)
