This is mainly a maintaince release with a few new features. I expect it to
be the last release of the 1.x series. All further development is made in
the 2.0 versions. The extented session support I have planed for this
release is also moved to the 2.0 development branch, altough there are some
enhancement in session management already build in.

Embperl is a system for building dynamic websites with Perl.
It gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML documents
and the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in
an object-oriented style. You can also take advantage of all the
usual Perl modules, (including DBI for database access) use their
functionality and easily include their output in your web pages.

Embperl has several features which are especially useful for creating
HTML, including dynamic tables, form field processing, URL
escaping/unescaping, session handling, and more.

See (english) or (german) for more information.

Changes since 1.3.3:

   - Added method $r -> Espace for html & url escaping
   - URL escpage # to %23
   - use Content-Lenght HTTP Header instead of $ENV{CONTENT_LENGTH}
     when running under mod_perl and win32. This fixes a bug
     with POSTed data reported by Lukas Zapletal.
   - Display correct Apache module name in Makefile.PL when
     requesting path for Apache module. Patch from James Lee.
   - New session handling using Apache::SessionX. (This also
     fixes problem with MD5 and Perl 5.6.1)
   - Fixed a bug that cause file-uploads to fail for the first
     request to a file when running under EmbperlObject. Reported
     by Thoren Johne.
   - Added possibilities to add the session id as argument to any URL,
     instead of using cookies.
   - Added new hash %sdat which holds temporary sessins data.
   - Added options optAddUserSessionToLinks, optAddStatusSessionToLinks
     and optNoSessionCookies to control how the session id is passed.
   - Make sure the HTML::Embperl::Mail generates correct line endings
   - If Perl's STDOUT and/or STDIN are tied to any package, Embperl now
     calls the Perl methods PRINT and READ for doing I/O. This currently
     only works, when not running under mod_perl.
   - Embperl can now run under FastCGI. Use instead of
   - Delete unnecessary PerlFixupHandler from httpd.conf.src for make test.
     Reported by David Merberg.
   - Add undef to %idat for select tag with nothing selected if
     optAllFormdata is set.
   - Cleanup of DBIx::Recordset objects now honors the setting in %CLEANUP.
     Problem reported by Kee Hinckley.
   - Embperl can now use encrypted sourcefiles. See crypto/README for
   - Embperl can now be installed as Apache and non Apache version on the
     same system. This is neccessary to work on Windows in- and outside of
   - Fixed a linkage problem with symbol embperl_module, first reported
     by GustavKristoffer Ek.
   - error message now always contain a filename.
   - Added optShowBacktrace to enable backtrace of filename in error
   - Removed obsolete debug flags dbgDisableCache, dbgWatchScalar,
   - Fixed problem with changeing to page directory on win32. Reported by
     Hans de Groot.
   - Fixed problems with mod_perl environement handling with ActiveState
     on win32.
