Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Test::Harness 3.0 is out!

[ #34844 ]

After a long wait, Test::Harness 3.0 is now available for download. Current, the default distribution still points to Test::Harness 2.65_02, but hopefully that will be resolved soon. As it stands, Andy Armstrong did the bulk of the work finishing things up, and the team is quite grateful for this.

There are now only six bugs left in the RT queue, most of which are wishlist items or unlikely to have a wide impact. Until recently, there were 46 bugs in said queue.

There has also been a surprisingly large number of projects already started basing their work on the underlying TAP::Parser module, including:

The following organization use or plan to use the new tools available: Yahoo!, BBC, XMMS2.

As a final piece of good news, Test::Harness::Straps has been released as a separate distribution in case you need time to rely on this module before converting over.

    With that said, I totally hate the new Test Summary Report format and 'skipped'. The old way was much more readable imho. Maybe my eyes will retrain with time. Who knows.

    From an 80 col command window:


            all skipped: set TEST_AUTHOR to enable this test

    • Thanks. I'm glad you like what we did, with the exception of the output.

      Regarding the output, we do take requests :) Also, it's not too hard to write your own view, but we do want to make it even easier in the future.

      Out of curiosity, which Catalyst version is that? I'm having trouble finding it on CPAN and I want to see those parse errors.

      So far I find Catalyst []. That's just a short POD file :(

      There's also Catalyst::Runtime [] which appears to be the correct Catalyst, but I can't tell.

      There's also
