17 TODO: maybe make extutilc::cbuilder return value dynamic and have some kind of app-preferences?
18 TODO: bundle "<<<<" error => endless loop
19 TODO: keepnl option of some kind
20 - implement lzf compression for library files, use "--compress none"
21 to disable.
22 - switch default mirrors to https.
23 - add backpan to urrlist by default, so its easier to install older, working,
24 modules such as JSTOWE/TermReadKey-2.33.tar.gz
25 - configure pushy_https by default, as this extraordinarily stupidly
26 named option apparently breaks urllist completely.
27 - new hook: postcpanconfig.
28 - more aggreessively strip consecutive whitespace when using PPI.
29 - avoid idiotic "Reverse operator" warning when stripping with PPI.
30 - change default compression for perl tarballs to gzip, as upstream
31 keeps changing compression algorithms and gzip is the only stable one.
32 - unset some more environment variables to reduce interference.
33 - implement (partial and so farr undocumented --keepnl mode for ppi stirpping).
34 - when installing modules, try to install before AND after building perl, to
35 work around a perl bug where it would try to link against both installed
36 and just-built versions of a module, which seems to happen for dual-life moduöes
37 such as Encode.
38
39 1.46 Tue 15 Feb 2022 19:25:09 CET
40 - when building an app ("mkapp"), staticperl freed the argv too
41 early, which causes memory corruption when perl is later
42 assigning to $0.
43 - default CPAN recommends_policy/suggests_policy to off.
44 - new bundle args: --extra-cflags, --extra-ldflags and --extra-libs.
45 - fix CBuilder workaround to actually use PERL_CFLAGS not PERL_CFLASGS.
46 - minor cosmetic fixes.
47
48 1.45 Fri Oct 19 23:26:54 CEST 2018
49 - work around weird, buggy and broken stacksize check in newer Storable.
50 - create a framework for patching modules before make, thanks to Storable.
51 - try to work around install phase changing thw cwd,m so instsrc . no
52 longer fails because the install dependency changed the cwd.
53 - restore PL_origfilename and $0 to argv[0] before running bootstrap,
54 so the script name is no longer '-e' in error messages and so on.
55 - PERL_VERSION can now be a full URL or a directory.
56 - default to stableperl.
57 - add -Uversiononly to Configure args, as it's required by staticperl, and
58 one of the many unrelated things usedevel needlessly toggles.
59
60 1.44 Tue Jul 7 01:32:49 CEST 2015
61 - added Net::SSLeay hint, tested and improved by gleeco.
62 - fix quoting bug, avoid failure when EXTRA_MODULES contains spaces.
63 - enable build_requires_install_policy to work around one of the myriad
64 bugs in Module::Build.
65 - support concurrent access to the DLCACHE.
66 - install ExtUtils::CBuilder early, to improve chances of succeeding
67 slightly by having a newer version.
68 - patch ExtUtils::CBuilder::Base::have_compiler to always return
69 false, as ExtUtils::CBuilder blindly builds shared libs on systems
70 that cannot build shared libs and modules relying on it usually
71 fail for similar reasons.
72 - set LD/CC/LDFLAGS/CFLAGS to work around the endlessly buggy ExtUtils::CBuilder,
73 which incidentally is a byproduct (read: garbage) of Module::Build.
74 - be more aggressive about post-install patching, to avoid stuff falling
75 through the cracks.
76 - override MAP_TARGET for ExtUtils::MakeMaker, as some modules
77 provide their own name for the perl binary (which is not what we want).
78 - update DynaLoader patch for current ExtUtils::MakeMaker.
79
80 1.43 Wed Apr 18 14:38:43 CEST 2012
81 - remove the temporary MakeMaker patch, as either Pod::Parser or
82 MakeMaker have been fixed. Also make sure we pull MakeMaker
83 from CPAN. This might fix the CPAN dependency problems with
84 newer perl versions (at least 5.14.2).
85 - staticperl mkperl or mkapp didn't clean up temporary files.
86 - PPI::XS seems to be broken, directly depend on PPI.
87
88 1.42 Mon Mar 5 08:16:02 CET 2012
89 - actually, really do it.
90
91 1.41 Mon Mar 5 08:14:11 CET 2012
92 - temporarily patch ExtUtils::MakeMaker because newer versions
93 break Pod::Parser.
94
95 1.4 Mon Jul 18 09:33:48 CEST 2011
96 - new configuration variable DLCACHE to avoid repeated downloads.
97 - the static:: namespace was wrongly documented as sttaicperl::.
98 - provide no compiler flags apart from -Os anymore by default.
99 - staticperl clean now removes all build files (src/).
100 - staticperl no longer sets EV_EXTRA_DEFS or CORO_INTERFACE.
101 - patch ExtUtils::Miniperl to always include DynaLoader, otherwise
102 static linking disables later dynamic linking and vice versa.
103 - (experimental) do not build a new perl unless a static archive
104 was created, to make -Dusedl faster.
105 - actually fail when not being able to install some modules from CPAN.
106 - speed up installing modules from CPAN if multiple modules have
107 been specified.
108 - weed out duplicated libraries form the beginning, not the end.
109 - set shell variable $PERL to full path to perl binary
110 when running staticperl cpan, which is handy for subshells.
111 - properly define "boot_DynaLoader" when DynaLoader is available.
112 - fix a memleak in static::list.
113 - mkbundle can now bundle dynamic objects for perl extensions
114 (--allow-dynamic).
115 - lots of windows workarounds/bugfixes.
116
117 1.31 Tue Jun 14 09:03:59 CEST 2011
118 - pause is more tricky than expected - rename fake.pm to Staticperl.pm.
119 - improved documentation a bit.
120
121 1.3 Tue May 10 19:39:39 CEST 2011
122 - the nothing-to-see-except-a-version-bump release.
123 - package a fake.pm file to (maybe!) get CPAN to allocate namespace
124 for us, as people have real trouble to install the distribution.
125
126 1.22 Sun May 1 11:28:54 CEST 2011
127 - prepend staticperl binary install path to PATH when running any
128 commands - will help many broken modules and scripts (e.g. those
129 using the broken #!env perl hack), but will also make life easier
130 for "staticperl cpan / look" users.
131 - use empty PERL_OPTIMIZE flags in testsuite for higher portability.
132 - unset PERL_CORE and PERL_MB_OPT variables because
133 these modules are part of perl - set them in your staticperlrc
134 instead.
135 - disable MAN1PODS and MAN3PODS in PERL_MM_OPT, to make Glib, Cairo,
136 Pango and Gtk2 build.
137 - patch ExtUtils::MM_Unix to search for static archives in blib more
138 often, as it doesn't detect Pango as being an XS module (which
139 is a bug in Pango).
140 - create a patch helper (SP-patch-postinstall) that is executed
141 after perl and eahc module install to do some important patches.
142 - rename the cpan-make-inmstall helper to SP-make-install-make.
143 - write mkbundle to bin/SP-mkbundle.
144 - new "staticperl perl" command.
145 - updated small/bigperl to 5.12.3.
146
147 1.21 Fri Mar 18 19:21:15 CET 2011
148 - ok, irix tar has no working -f and freebsd tar goes to a device
149 by default, so screw irix and go with freebsd.
150 - some bloke thought it's cool to force dynamic linking on darwin.
151 force as in "either you enable it, or the resulting build will be
152 forcefully broken". proves that whoever uses darwin deserves it.
153 anyway, we now patch away the idiocy in the hints file.
154 - for better portability, do not supply -Wl,--no-gc-sections
155 -Wl,--allow-multiple-definition, but sitll patch -Wl,--no-gc...
156 - new hook: patchconfig.
157
158 1.2 Mon Mar 14 00:11:15 CET 2011
159 - patch CPAN::HandleConfig as there seems to be no other way to
160 keep it from clobbering the users MyConfig.pm accidentally.
161 - call cpan internally in a way so it picks up only our MyConfig.pm,
162 for extra safety and the initial calls before patching.
163 - set default cpan "installer" to EUMM, and MB is too broken
164 (it fails to build extensions statically).
165 - use "tar x" only to accomodate irix (and possibly other systems).
166
167 1.11 Tue Mar 8 18:37:00 CET 2011
168 - no longer create bundle variable names from md5(data),
169 as it is no longer useful.
170 - fix output shortening in testsuite.
171
172 1.1 Thu Feb 24 07:20:22 CET 2011
173 - use a better -M syntax.
174 - the one-arg form of add/binadd was broken.
175 - --add and --binadd now use the file as alias if the alias is missing.
176 - embeddable bundle files were broken because "args"
177 was used before defined.
178 - mkapp now actually passes arguments to the boot script.
179 - more cpan-testers workarounds :/.
180 - implement an ignore-env option for mkbundle.
181 - use, not just require, modules when tracing their dependencies.
182 - support an optional xs_init argument to staticperl_init, which
183 can be 0 (and is then ignored).
184 - reduce PERL_ARENA_SIZE to something more reasonable for perl 5.12.
185 - use perl 5.12.3 by default.
186 - enable debug symbols by default (but not the dreaded -DDEBUGGING).
187
188 1.0 Mon Jan 10 15:13:19 CET 2011
189 - specify -Uinstallusrbinperl in configure to avoid creating
190 /usr/bin/perl.
191 - try to work around the totally broken /bin/sh on solaris
192 (only in the testsuite).
193 - use curl -f instead of just curl.
194 - prefer curl over wget again, as cpan seems to do so.
195 - clarify license.
196
197 0.92 Wed Dec 22 02:09:19 CET 2010
198 - major rework of the PHASE 2 documentation section, hopefully
199 it's now more clear, more useful, more sexy.
200 - renamed --usepacklist to --usepacklists (--usepacklist still
201 supported as abbreviation).
202 - "properly" get rid of SITELIB paths, avoid using -U compiler flags
203 (which didn't even do anything...).
204 - avoid export var=value syntax for non-unix shells (solaris...).
205 - better output in the error case from the testsuite.
206
207 0.912 Wed Dec 15 01:14:26 CET 2010
208 - print a longer and hopefully useful message when Configure fails.
209 - remove PERL_CPPFLAGS, replace with PERL_CCFLAGS, which get appended
210 tot he ccflags, instead of overriding them.
211 - introduce PERL_CC.
212 - work around *bsd stupidity again, where even root can't replace
213 files with mv :/.
214 - stop command processing when a command fails (e.g. staticperl mkperl
215 will stop if the install step fails).
216 - let perl do most configuration when running make test, to increase
217 chances of success.
218
219 0.911 Sat Dec 11 16:50:41 CET 2010
220 - argl, testsuite had a duplicated test.
221 - use -Wl,--allow-multiple-definition for better portability.
222
223 0.91 Fri Dec 10 22:13:43 CET 2010
224 - add testsuite (yeah, should be optional - send patches).
225 - started to maintain two demo builds: bigperl and smallperl,
226 on http://staticperl.schmorp.de.
227 - implemented --staticlib option.
228 - special unicore/ compression (but much more could be done,
229 especially for the uncompressed case).
230 - implemented a strip cache, speeding up ppi stripping enourmously.
231 - implemented --include/--exclude options.
232 - try to port the tar call to freebsd (reported and analyzed
233 by Thomas Linden).
234 - (hopefully) better meaning of verbose levels.
235 - avoid deadlocking in --eval (unlikely, but possible).
236 - implement $STATICPERLRC.
237 - do all option AND bundle file processing with Getopt::Long,
238 to make maintenance easier.
239
240 0.9 Wed Dec 8 23:26:48 CET 2010
241 - support AutoLoader'ed functions with prototypes.
242 - new mkapp / --app option for mkbundle, to create
243 standalone applications.
244
245 0.2 Tue Dec 7 21:50:07 CET 2010
246 - make it work as non-root user.
247 - make module install/linking much more robust against
248 build and link failures, i.e. try to only install
249 the module when it was actualyl built successfully.
250 - split "install" phase into perl install and module
251 install, so fixing your postinstall hook takes less time.
252 - change make clean to delete the sources dir.
253 - add preconfigure hook.
254
255 0.1 Tue Dec 7 10:23:43 CET 2010
256 - initial release.
257
258 0.0 Mon Dec 6 10:44:38 CET 2010
259 - cloned from Convert::Scalar.
260
