Subject Re: ANNOUNCE: Embperl 2.5.0
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 00:18:52 GMT
I noticed that this announcement mentions that Embperl 2.5.0 supports Perl up to 5.18.  I have
a system with Perl 5.20. Is there any way to install in this environment?  I’m failing the
make test here:

#103 rawinput/include.htm...  ok
#104 rawinput/include.htm...  ok
#105 execnotfound.htm...      ok
#106 includeerr1.htm...       ok
#107 includeerr1.htm...       ok
#113 includeerr2.htm...

Expected 2 more error(s) in logfile

Input:          test/html/includeerr2.htm
Output:         test/tmp/out.htm
Log:            test/tmp/test.log
  condition = $] >= 5.018000
  version = 2
  repeat = 2
  errors = 9
  cmpext = 518

 ERRORS detected! NOT all tests have been passed successfully

cat: test/tmp/ No such file or directory

It’s long time gone since the last Embperl release. All the time Embperl
development has gone on.

Now here is a new release with brings Embperl up to date with other
software. It now supports Perl up to 5.18 and Apache up to 2.4. A lot of
development has gone into Embperl::Form, which can be used to easily build a
modern user interface, which give the user a native feeling. Unfortunately
there is not much documentation on Embperl::Form yet, also examples are
still missing, but I hope to get this ready in the near future.


Embperl is a system for building dynamic websites with Perl.

It gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML/XML documents and
the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in an
object-oriented style.

Embperl has several features which are especially useful for creating
Websites, including dynamic tables, form field processing, URL
escaping/unescaping, session handling, caching, xslt transformation and

See (english) or (german) for more information.
(website is not updated yet, but this will follow shortly)



Changes since 2.4.0:

  - Do not clear old code before compiling a Embperl page
     in Perl >= 5.14.x because it causes seg faults. This
     leads to "subroutine redifined" warings, when a
     page was changed and is reloaded.

   - Corrected use of G_KEEPERR when calling eval, because
     of changed meaning, which cause the message "Compiling
     error" instead of the real error message.

   - Adapted tests to Perl 5.14 & 5.16

   - Fixed a refcounting problem cause message "Attempt to
     free unreferenced scalar" during mod_perl startup
     with Perl 5.14.x

   - Fix some dependencies on hash order inside the parser
     which causes Embperl to fail with Perl >= 5.18 because
     of hash randomisation.

   - Changed the way exit passed through internaly, so it
     works with Perl >= 5.18

   - Adapted tests to Perl 5.18

   - Adapted test httpd.conf to Apache 2.4. Embperl fully supports
     Apache 2.4

   - Makefile.PL now uses apache2 or httpd2 as Apache binary

   - Makefile.PL now autodetects if mpm needs to loaded as
     module for tests.

   - Fix output inside of Registry script for mod_perl 2.0.4+

   - Fix problem with error output on stderr for Windows 64Bit

   - removed support for XALAN XML parser. It was outdated
     anyway. libxml2 is still supported.

   - Fixed a C type declaration which caused RTF files to not
     correctly escaped with newer GCC's.

   - Embperl::Form is totally overhauled with many new features.
     It uses now jQuery as javascript library, instead
     of prototype. NOTE: This is an incompatible change. If
     you are using Embperl::Form before, you need to
     adapt your html code!

   - Fix some Unicode issues in Embperl::Form::Validate

   - Embperl::Form::Validate is now able to highlight input
     fields with wrong input

   - Applied the following debian patches: delay.patch,
     fix-string-typo.patch, fix-pod-errors.patch, fix-whatis.patch,
     new_process_group.patch, fix-pod-unescaped-unicode.patch,
     german.patch and utf8.patch which mainly corrects
     spelling and typo errors. NOTE: modperl.patch and
     Makefile.PL.patch are not applied, because they are
     debian specific. Thanks to Florian Schlichting for
     providing uptodate information about the patches
     and adaptions for Embperl 2.5.

   - Applied further spell corrections from Florian Schlichting.

   - Log Errors form Embperl::Syntax::Mail to error log

   - Fix compile problem on non intel plattforms due to missing
     -m32 flag.

   - Added support for utf8 sourcefiles. By setting
     input_charset => 'utf8' sponsored by Perlover.

   - Added optChdirToSource = 0x10000000 which will cause
     Embperl to change to the directory of the source file
     prior to execution.
