After a prolonged period of merely bugfixes, this day marks the release of a
new feature release (and ground up rewrite) of CPANPLUS: 0.050_01

This feature release prepares us for the next line of plugins in CPANPLUS,
which should greatly improve the quality of code and use of CPAN and CPAN

Some of the features include:
        * Native Module::Build support
        * Native query/report
        * Native signature verification support
        * Multiple frontend shells
        * Scriptable shells
        * Improved configuration options
        * Improved Programmable API
        * Plugins to package managers
        * Support for a remote CPANPLUS::Daemon
        * and many more...

You can view the readme here:

And obtain the source from:

Therefor I invite all of you who have an interest in CPAN modules, to try this
release out and report your findings back to us, whether they be feature
