3 3.75 Thu Apr 2 09:53:01 CEST 2020
4 - make build (more) reproducible.
5 - removed "portable" from the warnngs list, as 32 bit perls (as
6 opposed to 32 bit platforms) are practically extinct and it
7 warns about a weird subset of operations, i.e. 64 bit hex() is
8 not ok, 64 bit addition is fine, makes no sense. Moreso, other
9 than hex/oct etc. harassment, there is nothing in this category
10 that could be otherwise useful.
11
12 3.74 Mon Jun 29 14:39:26 CEST 2015
13 - the generated README file was empty.
14
15 3.73 Sat May 31 22:37:21 CEST 2014
16 - remove "deprecated", as it turned out to be yet another time bomb
17 as p5p don't care the least about backwards compatibility
18 anymore (https://rt.perl.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=119123).
19 - switching paths once more as this turned out to be a doc bug
20 in eumm. this should not affect anything though.
21
22 3.72 Wed Jul 31 19:44:18 CEST 2013
23 - install paths were wrong for current MakeMaker (reported
24 by various people).
25
26 3.71 Wed Jul 31 02:34:48 CEST 2013
27 - CPAN failed to parse the version number in 3.7, try to work
28 around.
29
30 3.7 Wed Jul 31 01:26:50 CEST 2013
31 - move pod to separate file, to further improve loading times.
32 - make it arch-specific, adding a test that warns when an old
33 version is still installed.
34 - due to a logic glitch, warnings were not enabled at all on 5.16.
35
36 3.6 Sun Jun 17 14:24:53 CEST 2012
37 - work around more 5.16 breakage - $^H doesn't work as nicely as
38 p5p make you to believe.
39 - add features: unicode_strings current_sub fc evalbytes.
40 - disable features: array_base.
41
42 3.5 Wed Mar 7 20:50:48 CET 2012
43 - localise $^W, as this causes warnings with 5.16 when some lost
44 soul uses -w. common::sense doesn't support $^W, but tries to
45 shield module authors and programs from its ill effects. If you
46 enable $^W, then you normally get to keep the pieces because you
47 change semantics of other people's code.
48
49 3.4 Fri Jan 14 07:17:16 CET 2011
50 - remove "regexp" category. this is rather painful as it's a large
51 class, but unfortunately, somebody thought emitting a warning when you
52 match more than 32kb of text is in some way useful, which spoils the whole
53 category.
54 - use META.json instead of META.yml - apparently YAML parsers don't actually
55 exist.
56
57 3.3 Fri Jul 2 22:40:14 CEST 2010
58 - removed "exiting" category - this is too useful to create new
59 control statements, and fails utterly with eval, as eval will
60 catch the (fatal) warning itself. Kind of hurts, but this is
61 just another warning category which is too broad and has to be
62 disabled fully because of a minority of issues.
63
64 3.2 Fri Apr 16 01:46:02 CEST 2010
65 - removed "substr" warning - while it overall is a good category,
66 "substr '', 2" is entirely sensible.
67
68 3.1 Sat Apr 3 04:56:36 CEST 2010
69 - removed "parenthesis" warning:
70 sysread $fh, my $buf, -s $fh; # ok
71 sysread $fh, my $buf, $size; # warning
72 Made no sense to me, especially as $size is in scope.
73 - no longer hardcode warning/struct bits, calculate them at
74 installation time, for when I will no longer be alive etc.
75 - tweaked documentation.
76
77 3.0 Tue Dec 15 03:24:28 CET 2009
78 - enable "use utf8" effect by default.
79 - removed "utf8" warning category. while this contains useful security
80 stuff, it also makes implementing security stuff almost impossible,
81 as it completely mangles perls internal utf8 encoding with actual
82 utf-8 encoding, and confuses "unicode", "string codepoints" and
83 "utf-8" so much that it becomes practically unusable.
84
85 2.03 Wed Dec 2 18:38:53 CET 2009
86 - removed "unopened" warning category, as this breaks "stat _", which
87 seems to be a bug in all perl versions (see perlbug #71002).
88 - some doc updates.
89
90 2.02 Wed Nov 4 12:04:08 CET 2009
91 - no functional changes.
92 - add META.yml clarification to the faq, tune the docs a bit
93 and add a "much reduced typing" section.
94 - unfortunately, the tone of the manpage has tightened and is
95 more serious in many parts now. We consider this a bug that we
96 plan to fix before 2100.
97
98 2.01 Mon Oct 5 17:01:48 CEST 2009
99 - add a FAQ section.
100 - use a more future-proof way to set the warning mask.
101
102 2.0 Tue Sep 1 20:28:25 CEST 2009
103 - codename "fatality", now with big doses of... fatality.
104 - enabled an enourmous number of warnings and made them FATAL,
105 as warned about in earlier releases. Of course we carefully
106 tested the new warnings against our modules, as mentioned
107 in the manpage, too.
108
109 1.0 Sat Aug 22 22:08:50 CEST 2009
110 - no functional changes.
111 - really, the first version of common sense!
112 - slightly improved documentation.
113 - forgot to include license.
114
115 0.04 Sun Aug 2 10:29:23 CEST 2009
116 - added "what others..." section.
117 - reinforce attempt at world domination.
118
119 0.03 Thu Jul 9 20:16:33 CEST 2009
120 - first public release, written on the Piratenstammtisch
121 (http://wiki.piratenpartei.de/Stammtisch_Karlsruhe).
122
123 0.01 Thu Jul 9 17:48:00 CEST 2009
124 - original version; cloned from Convert::Scalar.
