I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.
I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.
autodie 1.999_01 (beta) released
Today I decided to hack code while sitting under a tree, along the beautiful banks of the Merri Creek. I promised myself that I'd make a dev release of autodie before I finished for the day. Since I had forgotten to bring a cushion, autodie 1.999_01 will be remembered as my first release made due to me having an overly sore butt.
The new version of autodie is a dev release, which in any other language means "beta". It won't get installed by default with the CPAN installer, but you can download it manually and play with it. The hinting interface is there, and while it may have a few rough corners, it's pretty much all working.
To release autodie 2.0, I need to walk through the source and tidy up a number of TODOs (there are lots of these), check the documentation is correct (the hinting interface has changed a little since the docs were written), and add a few more test cases. Patches are welcome for any of these, and best made via github (fork the repo and check out the hints branch), although any form of patch is welcome.
