Win32::API v0.53 released to CPAN

Journal written by cosimo (4138) and posted by brian_d_foy on 2008.03.01 20:12   Printer-friendly

I just released version 0.53 of Win32::API. It should be available at your local CPAN mirror very soon. This version should play nicer with CPAN testers, since it checks if the OS makes sense before going through Makefile.PL, so no more failures with Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD, and such are expected.

Please note that I published 0.51 one hour ago, but it's broken, so I have already scheduled its deletion. Please don't use 0.51. Enjoy and please report to me any problems you have.

For the real list of changes, look at CPAN's Changes file.


  • Devel::AssertOS was not properly set up in 0.51.


  • Cleaned up pod docs and clearly stated Win32::API license
  • Fixed $$/pid tests for Cygwin
  • Now uses Devel::AssertOS to check that we are on a Win32 or Cygwin system. This should ease the work of CPAN testers.
