Text::Fuzzy now with transpositions

The Text::Fuzzy module for approximate string matches, especially over lists, now also handles the Damerau-Levenshtein edit distance, thanks to a patch from Nick Logan (UGEXE). This is an edit distance where the difference between "tarp" and "trap" is one rather than two. Please download this developer release to try it out.

CPAN::Nearest is now Text::Fuzzy

The module CPAN::Nearest for finding the closest module to a misspelt name is now integrated into a more general module, Text::Fuzzy.
