Please Test: PPI 1.217_01 - bug fixes, speed optimizations, tests, doc improvements
You can get the latest dev release from your closest CPAN mirror, or manually from MetaCPAN:
After Adam Kennedy made his last release of PPI in February 2011 with 1.215, the contributions of Revision: Tom Wyant, Olivier Mengué, David Steinbrunner, Matthew Horsfall (alh), massive amounts of work by Mike O'Regan, more help and most importantly the blessing of Adam Kennedy, moral and substantial support by Matt Trout, and some work by myself, the first release candidate of PPI in 3.5 years is now on CPAN, soon to be a real release.
- a number of fixes to how Perl is parsed, notably around the x operator and some case sensitivity
- many speed optimizations, allowing PPI to parse big files in reasonable time (the 1MB limit is now removed)
- many many doc fixes
- many more tests for previously untested code
- PPI is now on Github
If you use PPI in any capacity, please test it and let me know what your results are, BOTH bad and good. Bad results preferrably in the github issues.
My expected release time for this is the early european evening on the 15th of August.
If you would like to test it, but need more time, please also let me know. I'm fully willing to push the release date back as far as is needed.
