Changes for version 5.001

  • First official release of protocol 5. Better support for non standard NV types. Support for the new Perl 5.36 bools. Upgrade *Sereal::Decoder* FIRST.

Changes for version 5.000_002

  • Prerelease CPAN testing. Build fixes for quadmath and longdouble perls. Certain tests were failing with the old versions which were subtly broken on quadmath or longdouble machines. These tests are now skipped on these builds. You will not be able to fully test this platform until you install the Decoder, and then install the Encoder.

Changes for version 5.000_000
