Release Notes: This version fixed an offset problem in the test suite related to the fact that self-ties increment the refcount in some Perl versions and not in others. This value is now auto-adjusted. A warning was included in Makefile.PL to state that Perl versions between and including 5.6.1 and 5.7.0 are not fully supported.
Release Notes: This version fixes the test script "02___refcount.t" for Perl versions 5.8.5 and higher. An offset varies from Perl version to Perl version depending on whether self-ties increment the refcount or not.
Release Notes: Fixed a bug in method "read()" which prevented empty lines to be read back in list context (empty lines were mistaken for the end-of-file marker) and when an item in a location has the value "undef", the method "read()" now returns the empty string instead. You would have mistaken this for the end-of-file marker in previous versions.
Release Notes: All global or "class" methods are gone, all locations are local variables now in the sense that they are automatically destroyed whenever your last reference of a location goes out of scope, all locations are dumped automatically now at shutdown time of this module if and only if a filename has been provided previously, the method "toplevel()" cannot be used to artificially set or reset the "toplevel" status of a location anymore and the code in general, the regression test suite and the documentation have been overhauled a great deal.
Release Notes: Version 4.3 is mainly a bugfix release. The bug that caused statements like ``print $location "text";'' to fail in Perl 5.005 is now fixed. Moreover, little improvements of the code and a small regression test suite (for "make test") have been added. Locations continue to be global variables, though. Truly local locations are planned for version 5.0 (which is currently under development).
