Release history for XML-Atom-SimpleFeed 0.904 Jun 03 May 2020 - Minor packaging improvement 0.903 Jun 03 May 2020 - No spurious test failures when DateTime::TimeZone fails 0.902 Thu 02 Nov 2017 - Proper packaging (mea máxima culpa) - No code changes 0.901 Wed 01 Nov 2017 - Support for Time::Date objects in date constructs 0.900 Tue 22 Sep 2015 - Support for arbitrary XML encodings [INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] - Removal of ->no_generator method. To suppress the default generator tag, specify an undef generator. 0.863 Thu 10 Sep 2015 [INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] - Datetime object support now via ->epoch method instead of ->strftime. Despite the fact that this is an incompatible change, it should actually be a non-event for almost all users, because every datetime module with a ->strftime method that I could find on CPAN also has an ->epoch method (as well as vice versa). However, the ->strftime methods of many modules are (subtly or badly) broken in the face of timezones, even as their ->epoch methods work right (or else are broken subtly enough to escape notice). But if you have written your own datetime class, and it has a ->strftime method but not an ->epoch method, and you pass an instance of your class to an instance of this module, then the feeds you generate that way will now be broken. On balance, I believe that this change will unbreak vastly more code than it breaks. Therefore I decided to switch. 0.862 Tue 08 Sep 2015 - Correct RFC 3339 formatting for datetime objects (Thanks, virii) 0.861 Tue 06 Jan 2015 - Auto-formatting for recognised data types in date constructs - Fixed CDATA flattener (was missing /s flag) - Non-fatal warnings; mea maxima culpa - Test suite cleanup - Now uses Dist::Zilla 0.86 Tue 23 Jun 2009 - Person constructs are properly escaped and encoded 0.85 Tue 23 Jun 2009 - Used a less finicky implementation strategy for the CDATA flattener so hopefully it will not be buggy any more 0.84 Tue 26 May 2009 - Added some basic XML writer tests, which uncovered a bug in the CDATA flattener, which is now fixed 0.83 Mon 25 May 2009 - Thanks to JMASTROS for spotting another bug in the XML escaping function and contributing a test case 0.82 Sat 21 Jun 2008 - I can't believe no one noticed in such a long time that the XML escaping function was broken. I need unit tests... - Also, the date in the changelog entry for 0.81 was wrong. 0.81 Sat 21 Jun 2008 - Put private functions in XML::Atom::SimpleFeed::YeWhoEnters and placed methods in XML::Atom::SimpleFeed explicitly. This gets rid of approximately 734 prefix underscores. - It turns out Carp::Clan wasn't even necessary, Carp works that way by default. *blush* - More big POD cleanups (converted lots of list items to subheadings so they're linkable and listed in the TOC). - Throw out the pointless POD and POD coverage tests. - Automatically escape the content of the `icon`, `id`, `logo`, `published`, and `updated` elements. Oops. (CPAN RT #36961) 0.8 Sat 03 Jun 2006 - Multiple consecutive internal refactors; code structure is now actually satisfactory - Handles multiple authors and contributors - Support for icon and logo elements - Big POD cleanup - Use Carp::Clean to get rid of silly $Carp::CarpLevel juggling - ***BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE API CHANGE***: Elements such as C<link> which may appear multiple times are no longer specified in an anonymous array, but simply given repeatedly. - ***BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE API CHANGE***: Atom 0.3 element and attribute names are no longer supported. (No point keeping a lot of deprecation code around in the face of a change like the above.) - ***BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE API CHANGE***: Suppress the default C<generator> element requires calling the C<no_generator> method instead of passing a C<generator> key to C<new> with an undefined value. - ***BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE API CHANGE***: Well, since I'm at it, the C<save_file> method is no longer supported. C<print> now takes a handle, though. - Cleaned up errors and warning messages and got rid of DIAGNOSTICS section in POD 0.8_004 Wed 10 May 2006 - Brownbag upload: forgot to update ./Changes in 0.8_003 0.8_003 Wed 10 May 2006 - Minor incremental progress; various bugfixes, some refactor. 0.8_002 Sun 09 Apr 2006 - Use builtin XML writer instead of SAX for output. This eliminates huge amounts of redundancy. - Big improvements in the distribution of responsibilities for deprecation and validation checks. - Array-based implementation rather than inside-out objects. - Internal structure is now more logical and consistent. 0.8_001 Wed 28 Sep 2005 - Emit Atom 1.0. Documentation updated to reflect Atom 1.0. Usage according to Atom 0.3 will transparently generate 1.0 elements but emit deprectation warnings. - Remove _generate_entry_id and use HTTP URLs as IDs by default. Using tag: URIs is useful for generating the ID once, up front, so that it won't change even if the permalink does -- if the ID is generated from the permalink, we might as well use the permalink directly. - Use XML::SAX::Writer instead of XML::Simple for output. 0.7 Fri 06 May 2005 - Fix the module prereq in Makefile.PL to actually do the proper dependency tests. Oops. 0.6 Wed 27 Apr 2005 - Use XML::Simple to generate the XML, instead of doing strings by hand. - Make the module more robust: it now can handle multiple titles, links, etc. by passing in arrayrefs and hashrefs, while still allowing for simple use with strings. - Many thanks to Aristotle Pagaltzis for the help. 0.5 Wed 09 Mar 2005 - Add an as_string method to return the feed as a scalar. - Escape any <![CDATA[ or ]]> strings that appear in the content CDATA section. - Allow the save_file method to take either an open filehandle or a scalar containing a filename. - These issues reported by Aristotle Pagaltzis. 0.4 Tue 22 Feb 2005 - Rework the author code again to fixe more bugs that I probably should have caught before releasing 0.3. Sigh. 0.3 Tue 22 Feb 2005 - Fixed a bug in the entry author section where the author name was always showing up as "name". CPAN RT ID# 11620 - Fixed a similar bug in the feed-level author section. - Happy Birthday, Holly! 0.2 Sat 19 Feb 2005 - Adjust the XML encoding to produce valid feeds. 0.1 Fri 18 Feb 2005 - Initial release.
