CPAN::Reporter goes beta

[ #34528 ]

Since the initial release of CPAN::Reporter, one of the big missing features was sending CPAN Testers reports for *.PL and make/Build stages. A while ago, I added that capability in the CPAN::Reporter and CPAN development series.

With the new, stable release of CPAN 1.92, CPAN::Reporter is very close to its 1.00 release. I've just bumped the CPAN prerequisite to match and put out CPAN::Reporter 0.99_12. I consider this a release candidate for 1.00.

If you're already using a development version of CPAN::Reporter, please upgrade to the latest to help shake out any last blockers. If you aren't using a development version of CPAN::Reporter and would like to try it, it should install easily from the CPAN shell (and will upgrade CPAN for you if necessary).

cpan> install DAGOLDEN/CPAN-Reporter-0.99_12.tar.gz
cpan> reload cpan

Thank you very much to everyone that has contributed suggestions and bug reports along the way.

  • So 1.00 is going to have HTTP support right?

    • No. I have no plans for CPAN::Reporter to create its own transport mechanism separate from that provided by Test::Reporter.

      See CPAN::Testers [] for a graphic and description of the CPAN Testers architecture.

      Additional Roadmap [] ideas are on the CPAN Testers wiki. You can also email to participate in discussions on how to improve CPAN Testers.

      • Right you are, I keep forgetting this.

        I should henceforth try to heap my scorn in the appropriate place. :(
        • I'll offer to co-sponsor a meter of beer, if you think that would help...

          • It's not that class of problem right?

            That is, it's intentionally not being implemented?

            That said, nobody is stopping you from offering your own attention-grabbing award :)
