Change history for Perl extension PDF::Table.

=== Version 1.005 (2023-01-28)

   Update cell checking when using markup, so that anything which CAN be by
    default stringified, will be. Some customers are using default or implicit
    stringification of objects, which was being caught as an unsupported data
    type, and rendered as "(invalid)" in a cell. The downside is that if you 
    send something nonsensical (e.g., reference to a SCALAR), you will see the 
    stringified reference (address), as done in the 1.003 and earlier versions.

  Makefile.PL remove PROVIDES clause, as was getting build warnings about it.

=== Version 1.004 (2023-01-21)

  lib/PDF/, lib/PDF/Table.pod, INFO/SPONSORS (new), INFO/Table.html,
   For PDF::Builder ONLY, allow specification of cell 'markup' (Markdown
    or HTML), to permit great flexibility in cell content. See PDF::Builder's
    examples/ for an example of usage.

   This work (as well as markup changes for PDF::Builder) has been kindly
    sponsored by Amtivo Group (see INFO/SPONSORS).

  lib/PDF/, examples/
   The 'Times' font should be named 'Times-Roman', to conform with the correct
    core font naming. PDF::Builder no longer silently accepts 'Times' as an
    alias for 'Times-Roman', and now gives a warning.

  xt/manifest.t, xt/pod.t, MANIFEST, util/
   Move author tests from t/ to xt/

   PDF::API2 (PREVIOUS to release 2.044) has a bug in its TTF
    handling, where it fails to translate some Unicode points ("U+nnnn" number)
    to the appropriate font glyph entry, and instead puts the Unicode point
    in the glyph list. This is incorrect, and usually results in a mismapping.
    As of PDF::API2 v 2.044, seems to be working again.

   If command line -A or -B, add prefix A_ or B_ to the output file name. This
    can be useful when using -A or -B with util/ to generate
    different output PDFs for PDF::API2 and PDF::Builder. Keep in mind that an
    example given without -A or -B will not add the prefix.

  lib/PDF/, lib/PDF/Table.pod, INFO/Table.html, 
    examples/ (new), util/
   Dry run to return vertical size (overall, header, [footer], each row),
    no output to PDF, with "ink" set to 0.

  lib/PDF/Table.pod (moved), MANIFEST, util/, Makefile.PL
   Move .pod up a level (thanks to "perlpunk")

  lib/PDF/Table/Table.pod, INFO/Table.html, examples/,
    INFO/Changes_2019, lib/PDF/
   Typos caught by lintian (via emollier) and codespell (via mdeweerd).

 CONTRIBUTING, MANIFEST  add Contribution guide

=== Version 1.003 (2022-07-05)

 lib/PDF/Table/, lib/PDF/Table/Table.pod, examples/,
   MANIFEST, util/
  Add the ability to specify fixed and relative sizes for column widths, 
   rather than having to accept system-calculated widths. You give a string
   to the 'size' optional global setting specifying the absolute width of
   a column (in, pt, cm, mm, em, or ex units), and/or a unit of '*' to 
   indicate remaining space is to be split up among these columns.

 lib/PDF/, lib/PDF/Table/, MANIFEST
  Split out deprecated_settings and check_settings functions into new file.

 lib/PDF/, lib/PDF/Table/, MANIFEST, t/PDF-Table.t
  Split out CalcColumnWidths function into new file.

  PDF::API2 work-around added for font-handling change in 2.043. The problem
   is being investigated, but the chess example almost works for now.

 lib/PDF/, lib/PDF/Table/Table.pod, MANIFEST
  Split out documentation into separate POD file.

  Fix handling of degenerate case of header-only, without data rows (#71).

 lib/PDF/, t/PDF-Table.t  
  Finish cleanup of column width calculations (#68, #72).

  Build (at install) META.* with "provides" member. Add separate license file.
   Add some items to MANIFEST SKIP file to clean up.

  $LAST_UPDATE changed from 'my' storage class to 'our', so can be accessed

   Absolute minimum with of a column reset to at least $min_col_width (a new 
    global default) to prevent text_block() width errors.

 Update build process to ensure consistent "unix" formatting of most 
   human-readable files. Some non-CPAN builds were complaining
   about MS-DOS format (CRLF line ends) on some files.

 lib/PDF/, examples/, t/PDF-Table.t
   Fix handling of max_w [GitHub #68], rewrite column width calculations. This
    may result in some noticable changes in column widths from before.

 lib/PDF/   Remove requirement that "empty cell" text not be an
   empty string (allow $empty_cell_text to be ''), permitting completely
   empty cells.

 lib/PDF/   minor comment updates, lib/PDF/, INFO/Table.html
  2022 copyright. NOT archiving Changes yet.

=== Version 1.002 (2020-12-27), lib/PDF/, Makefile.PL
  Miscellaneous updates to clean up support URLs, emails, etc.

  Remove use of CSS reference, as that site no longer exists.
   Looking for a good replacement, possibly Bootstrap, that doesn't require 
   that a phone be turned to landscape orientation in order to read text at
   a decent size.

  Cells spanning columns only had the first part (cell) of the bottom 
   horizontal rule drawn. Reported by "stefanalt". Fixed to draw full spanned 

  One calculated value was considerably different between standard Perl (uses
   doubles for floats), long-double Perl, and quad-math Perl. Round the 
   calculated value to 6 decimal digits so that it works on any system.

=== Version 1.001 (2020-11-05)

 lib/PDF/  fix edge case where no borders led to no rules [GH 55].

 t/manifest.t, t/pod.t  
  Make author-only (AUTHOR_TESTING=1). ref [GH 61]
 lib/PDF/, t/pod.t
  POD change =head5 to =head4, to look better and stop older POD checkers 
   from complaining (in t/pod.t). Also minimum Test::Pod version 1.52 
   (was 1.00). ref [GH 61].

 examples/, t/lib/, INFO/Deprecated, lib/PDF/
  Replace deprecated setting names by current names in the POD, examples, and
   t-tests. After November 2022, settings names (args) with a leading dash 
   (hyphen) will no longer be permitted.

=== Version 1.000 (2020-11-03)

 INFO/Deprecated, INFO/Table.html, lib/PDF/
  Final cleanup of POD and generation of HTML documentation, and listing of
   all deprecated setting names.

 t/lib/  add linedash dummy call so t tests can run.

 lib/PDF/, MANIFEST, examples/, util/
  Old "borders" was vertical and horizontal rules PLUS outside rules (frame).
   Separate into "borders" (outside) and "rules" (inside). Add
   example to illustrate.

 examples/  with DejaVu-Sans, can use chess piece images

 .github/worksflows/test.yml,  minor fixes in README to make lint
   run happily, stop checking Table.html.

 examples/*.pl  Allow -A or -B on the command line (case insensitive) to
   override PDFpref file (if any) setting. This speeds up testing for PDF::API2
   vs PDF::Builder (default).

 lib/PDF/, INFO/Deprecated, INFO/Table.html, MANIFEST, 
   examples/, t/PDF-Table.t, t/lib/, util/
  Clean up handling of minimum and maximum cell widths (min_w and max_w).
   Clean up handling of background and foreground colors. Add example
   to show off color handling. Update t-tests for slight coordinate changes.

 Add row_props (row properties) similar to column_props, to set things on a
   per-row basis.

 If the table spills over to a new page, and next_y and/or next_h was NOT
   given, issue a warning and for a default use 90% of the media height for
   next_y and 80% for next_h (ref ticket #11). This should be better than 
   using the (start_)y and (start_)h values for the table.

 Add new, more consistent aliases for a number of settings (ref ticket #13). 
   The old setting names are still available for at least TWO YEARS, after 
   which, they will be REMOVED. Over the next two years you should update your 
   code to use the new setting names. The settings involved are:
      'start_y'               is now 'y'
      'start_h'               is now 'h'
      'row_height'            is now 'min_rh'
      'background_color'      is now 'bg_color'
      'background_color_odd'  is now 'bg_color_odd'
      'background_color_even' is now 'bg_color_even'
      'font_color'            is now 'fg_color'
      'font_color_odd'        is now 'fg_color_odd'
      'font_color_even'       is now 'fg_color_even'
      'font_underline'        is now 'underline'
      'lead'                  is now 'leading'
   These are listed in INFO/Deprecated. In the near future, the examples and
   t-tests will be updated to use the new setting names.

 Ship with Table.html (documentation) in INFO/. Update MANIFEST.

 Remove from the util/ list. I'm still not sure why
   it should be in the examples -- basically, it shows that UTF-8 doesn't work
   with core fonts, but that's already a documented limitation (in 
   PDF::Builder). is still in the examples/ directory, if anyone 
   wants to play with it.
 Add INFO/Deprecated to list names and interfaces scheduled to be removed in
   the future (at least 2 years). MANIFEST updated.

 Split out older Changes list into INFO/Changes_2019. MANIFEST updated.

 Increase default cell padding to 2pt. See documentation "COMPATIBILITY" for
   how to get the old behavior (0pt padding). t/Basics.t, t/Colspan.t,
   t/PDF-Table.t expected write locations updated. examples/ and
   examples/ were widened slightly to accommodate the padding.

 Make "odd/even" row consistent with or without a header (repeated or not),
   particularly when a table is split across pages, and when a row itself is
   split in such a case. See documentation "COMPATIBILITY" for how to get the 
   old behavior.

 Header 'repeat' default changed from 0 (no) to 1 (yes), as most of the time
   a user will want to repeat any header on each new page. Suppress repeating
   a header with a value of 0. See documentation "COMPATIBILITY" for how to
   get the old behavior.

 Currently, PDF::Table is shipped to use the new behaviors, with as much
   compatibility as possible with existing code (see $compat_mode in
   Unless you have need to use the old behaviors for existing code, we 
   suggest that you leave $compat_mode as 0, use the 'compatibility' setting, or 
   individually set the flags, to make use of the new behaviors. Also use the 
   new settings names, unless there is a need for compatibility in existing 
   code. Eventually, use of the old names will produce warnings, and later, 
   error messages, but the old behaviors should be available for a long time.
   You should examine your existing code and plan to update it over time.

 Initialize %arg entries (defaults) so no uninitialized errors. #57 reported by
   Larry Leszczynski (larryl) for text_block() along with PR.
