I've just emitted a new and much-belated version of Test.pm. Hopefully it will pass without notice, and will serenely start emitting helpful messages with Test.pm-using programs everywhere.
Progress on the new Pod parser class continues, in the form of many new test files, and the bugs that they uncover and that I fix. What's left is what I've been dreading: tests for the "L<...>" and "=item" code -- the two evil messes at the heart of Pod processing. I'm aiming for an end-of-the-month release, and I want it to be good.
