Pod::Readme can now be used with Dist::Zilla

I've recently released a new version of Pod::Readme with hooks to work with Dist::Zilla.

I also worked with Fayland 林 so that Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ReadmeFromPod will use Pod::Readme.

This means that you can use Pod::Readme's POD syntax in your module for generating README files. This includes the ability to:

  • Write POD sections in your module that are only shown in the README, such as the installation instructions, prerequisites, etc.;
  • Exclude other POD sections from the README, such as the details of functions and methods in your module;
  • Include the module's version, latest changes, or prerequisites in the README automatically;

You can also generate README files in alternative formats, such as POD, markdown or HTML.
