Fedora Update Notification
2011-08-18 21:51:15

Name        : perl-Dist-Zilla
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 4.200017
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Dist-Zilla/
Summary     : Distribution builder; installer not included!
Description :
Dist::Zilla builds distributions of code to be uploaded to the CPAN. In
this respect, it is like ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build, or
Module::Install. Unlike those tools, however, it is not also a system for
installing code that has been downloaded from the CPAN. Since it's only run
by authors, and is meant to be run on a repository checkout rather than on
published, released code, it can do much more than those tools, and is free
to make much more ludicrous demands in terms of prerequisites.

Update Information:

This update includes:
* require and adapt to the new Perl::PrereqScanner, which does not prune out prereqs just because they're core and common
* add options to exclude files from GatherDir
* don't build the dist in a directory with -TRIAL in the name; this should fix bugs in `dzil release --trial` and probably other related bugs
* add documentation for TemplateModule
* `dzil listdeps --missing` no longer dies if it encounters an invalid $VERSION
* PkgVersion and PkgDist no longer use BEGIN blocks

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update perl-Dist-Zilla' at the command line.
