It's been a year since DBD::SQLite team released the last stable version of DBD::SQLite (1.37). The team has added a few new features to retrieve database information, and applied a number of bug fixes thanks to the community, most notably the one to address an issue where bind_param didn't work with PADTMP scalars (RT #79576).
Also, two significant changes have been made; one by us, and the other by the upstream.
The team decided to enforce "immediate transaction" for all the transactions unless otherwise conf…
I've finally launched a new CPANTS website: http://cpants.cpanauthors.org/
Some of the new features follow:
Almost all the BackPAN distributions have also been analyzed.
You can subscribe your kwalitee report feed of your distributions (http://cpants.cpanauthors.org/author/PAUSEID/feed).
Finally Moose and friends are correctly considered as "use strict" equivalents, and new valid_signature metric is introduced (both have been implemented in Module::C…
I'm happy to announce that I've launched a website for Acme::CPANAuthors modules. You can see which group is supposed to have the largest community, or have contributed to the CPAN most, or who is the most prolific author in a community or the author of the highest kwalitee. Of course these are based on unofficial user-defined lists, and these lists don't cover all of the CPAN authors yet (as of this writing, about quarter of CPAN authors (or half of active authors) are covered). So we shouldn't take them seriously, but anyway, have fun, and feedbacks are welcome.
The DBD::SQLite team shipped a new developer release (version 1.34_01) with a patch by Mark Dootson. It should fix a long-standing "not an error" issue under the mod_perl/CentOS environment (reported and discussed in several tickets). I confirmed the bug was gone under the CentOS 5.5, but if you find it still remains under your (probably rather old) environment, please let us know via RT, mailing list, or #firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
I have recently replaced my perl news bot for IRC (#email@example.com) and Twitter (@perlnews) along with the server where it resides. Now it is powered by AnyEvent (it was a Plagger bot before), and its repository goes to github as well. If you find anything wrong or if you have any feeds to be included, send me a pull request. Enjoy.
