Atom Editor Invites

March 20th, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in GitHub, Software

I have two invites for the beta of the Atom editor under development by GitHub. I haven’t played with it enough yet to know whether it is spiffy, or if so how spiffy it indeed is.

Two things to know if you are interested in trying it out:

  • It currently is only available for MacOS. Appears to be compatible with Mountain Lion and Mavericks only, as well.
  • You will have to register via your GitHub account, assuming you have one. Then again, if you are considering test-driving an editor like this then you probably have a GH account…

If you are interested, email me at my primary address (rjray <at> blackperl.com). I will send invites to the first two respondents, using the email address you email from. Do not comment on this post for an invite, as the email notification goes to a different account that I do not check as often.

Perl Module Release: RPC-XML 0.78

February 6th, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in CPAN, Perl, Software, XML
Version: 0.78
Released: Thursday February 6, 2014, 08:00:00 PM -0800

Changes:

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm

A patch to loop detection in smart_encode from Dag-Erling Smørgrav. Some other minor bits.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Procedure.pm

RT #83108: Fixed a spelling error. Some other fixes, too.

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm

RT #86187: Force key-ordering in struct as_string and serialize. Was getting some intermittent bug reports of failures in t/15_serialize.t that amounted to the keys in a fault struct not being in consistent order.

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • t/15_serialize.t

Undo the previous change and fix the test. The previous change didn't feel right, so this rolls it back and fixes the problem at the level of the test, instead.

  • Makefile.PL
  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Client.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

Replace direct evals for loading optional modules with Module::Load. Required adding this to Makefile.PL because Module::Load is not core in 5.8.8. Also did some slight doc tweaking.

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Client.pm

Merge pull request #5 from alexrj/utf8-encode. Use utf8::encode() instead of utf8::downgrade().

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Client.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

Finish the uft8 encode vs. downgrade change from the previous commit. Changed in places that were overlooked, and adjusted the version number in all three modules.

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Parser/XMLLibXML.pm

Merge pull request #6 from dctabuyz/master. Added 'no_blanks' libxml option to skip blank XML::LibXML::Text nodes.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

Merge pull request #7 from kvar/master. Initialize $do_compress in RPC::XML::Server between requests.

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Parser/XMLLibXML.pm
  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

Bump version numbers on modules changed in github pulls.

Perl Module Release: RPC-XML 0.77

September 3rd, 2012 | No Comments | Posted in CPAN, Perl, Software, XML
Version: 0.77

Released: Monday September 3, 2012, 12:00:00 PM -0700

Changes:

  • t/15_serialize.t

Fix a test failure on Windows.

  • lib/RPC/XML.pm

RT #70408: Fix spelling error in man page, reported by Debian group.

  • t/90_rt54183_sigpipe.t

Fix to handle cases where server creation fails. Now skips the tests rather than dying.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Client.pm

RT #67486: Add port to Host header in client requests.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

RT #65341: Added “use” of forgotten library File::Temp. This was causing failure when “message_file_thresh” kicked in.

  • t/10_data.t

RT #78602: Changed 64-bit test from use64bitint to longsize. On some systems (such as OS X), use64bitint can be true even when in 32-bit mode.

  • t/21_xml_libxml.t

Fix from Christian Walde, skip passed test on Windows.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm
  • t/40_server.t

Checkpoint refactoring and additional tests. Work is not complete here, but the Net::Server changes demand immediate attention

  • t/20_xml_parser.t

RT #72780: Check for a possible parser failure. One instance of XML::Parser failing to parse the extern entities test. Cannot reproduce, so wrap it in a “skip” block for now.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Procedure.pm
  • t/30_method.t

RT #71452: Correct handling of dateTime parameters. Existing code in lib/RPC/XML/Procedure.pm did not properly handle parameters of the dateTime.iso8601 type. Also, there were no tests for these.

  • MANIFEST
  • t/30_method.t (deleted)
  • t/30_proceudre.t (added)

Renamed t/30_method.t to t/30_procedure.t.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

RT #77992: Make RPC::XML::Server work with Net::Server again, after the API changes of Net::Server 2.x.

Perl Module Release: Image-Size 3.231

May 23rd, 2012 | No Comments | Posted in CPAN, Perl, Software
Version: 3.231

Released: Wednesday May 23, 2012, 11:30:00 PM -0700

Changes:

  • lib/Image/Size.pm

Small change to swfmxsize for short-buffer issues.

  • lib/Image/Size.pm

Multiple changes in this commit: Abandoned AutoLoader; moved POD to the end of the file now that all the per-format subroutines are part of the file-proper; fixed cases where lack of ImageMagick would cause the error message to be overwritten.

  • t/all.t
  • t/kazeburo-bar.jpg (added)

New test (and image) for JPG tag-offset issue.

  • lib/Image/Size.pm

Applied patch from github user kazeburo: bug fix for some jpeg files

  • imgsize

Fixed so that default output now catches errors. Previously, you would get an “undefined” warning if there was an error in parsing/sizing the input file.

  • lib/Image/Size.pm

Turns out the 4 bounding-box ints for EMF are signed.

Perl Module Release: RPC-XML 0.76

August 21st, 2011 | No Comments | Posted in CPAN, Perl, Software

Released: Saturday August 20, 2011, 06:30:00 PM -0700

Changes:

  • etc/make_method
  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

RT #70258: Fixed typos in docs pointed out by Debian team.

  • lib/Apache/RPC/Server.pm

Better version of the fix for infinite loops. This is the patch originally suggested by Eric Cholet, who found the bug.

  • t/00_load.t

RT #70280: This test was still testing RPC/XML/Method.pm. Rewrote to remove that but include the (forgotten) XMLLibXML.pm module. That test has to be conditional on the presence of XML::LibXML.

  • Makefile.PL
  • t/51_client_with_host_header.t

Clean up test suite to work with older Test::More. Also specify a minimum Test::More that supports subtest(). This is also a part of RT #70280.

  • t/11_base64_fh.t
  • t/20_xml_parser.t
  • t/21_xml_libxml.t
  • t/40_server.t

These tests had failures when run as root. Permissions-based negative tests were incorrectly passing.

  • t/10_data.t

Moved the 64-bit “TODO” tests to a SKIP block. Non-64-bit systems will skip, rather than fail, these tests.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm

RT #65616: Fix for slow methods killing servers. Applied and modified patch from person who opened the ticket.

  • MANIFEST
  • lib/RPC/XML.pm
  • t/10_data.t
  • t/14_datetime_iso8601.t (added)

RT #55628: Improve flexibility of date parsing. This adds the ability to pass any ISO 8601 string to the RPC::XML::datetime_iso8601 constructor.

  • t/90_rt58323_push_parser.t (added)

RT #58323: Started as making the parser interfaces correctly report errors when passed null-length strings or “0″ values. Turned out that the error return interface from XMLLibXML.pm was not consistent with the rest of the system, so fixed that as well.

  • lib/RPC/XML/Server.pm
  • t/40_server.t

RT #58240: Applied a patch from Martijn van de Streek that adds access to the HTTP::Request object to called method code.

  • t/20_xml_parser.t
