    Mech now defaults to _not_ running live tests by default.

    1.66        Fri Sep 10 16:25:44 CDT 2010
    ========================================
    [FIXED]
    Fixed prerequisites on HTTP::Server::Simple on Windows.
    
    DNS checks in t/autocheck.t and t/local/failure.t improved.  Thanks,
    Schwern.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    New $mech->text method returns the text from your HTML page.  The
    exact rendering of this text is simply removing all the HTML
    tags, but this will change. It's pretty ugly.  If anyone wants to
    work on a better-looking text dump, I'd love to see it.
    
    Added mech-dump --text.
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    Improvements to the docs explaining explicitly about the subclassed
    methods we inherit from LWP::UserAgent.  Thanks, Lyle Hopkins!

  1. Bump the PKGREVISION for all packages which depend directly on perl,

    seb authored
    to trigger/signal a rebuild for the transition 5.10.1 -> 5.12.1.
    
    The list of packages is computed by finding all packages which end
    up having either of PERL5_USE_PACKLIST, BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.perl,
    or PERL5_PACKLIST defined in their make setup (tested via
    "make show-vars VARNAMES=..."), minus the packages updated after
    the perl package update.
    
    sno@ was right after all, obache@ kindly asked and he@ led the
    way. Thanks!

    Upstream changes:
    1.64        Thu Jul  1 10:41:00 CDT 2010
    ========================================
    [THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
    If you've been accessing $mech->{forms} or $mech->{form} values
    directly, instead of going through the $mech->forms or $mech->current_form
    accessors, respectively, then this version of Mech will break your
    code.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    Parsing of forms has been delayed until they're actually needed.
    If don't use forms on a page, you'll no longer waste time and memory
    parsing them.
    
    $mech->title now caches the title of the page after parsing the
    page to find it.
    
    mech-dump now takes a --cookie-file parameter for keeping cookies
    between calls.
    
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    Typo fixes.

    ========================================
    [FIXED]
    Fixed a declaration in the Movable Type example in
    WWW::Mechanize::Examples.
    
    Quiet warnings if %ENV has undef values.
    
    $mech->follow_link() no longer dies with an inappropriate error if
    the link is not found.
    
    $mech->click_button() now checks to see if a form is selected.
    
    [INCOMPATIBILITIES]
    $mech->form_name() and $mech->form_number() no longer throw warnings
    if they can't find the form specified.  They still return undef,
    though.
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    More additions to the FAQ.

    Windows.
    
    Fixed up some minor documentation problems.

  1. pkgsrc changes:

    sno authored
      - Updating package for p5 module WWW::Mechanize from 1.54 to 1.58
      - Adjusting license and dependencies according to META.yml and Makefile.PL
    
    Upstream changes:
    1.58        Mon Jul 13 22:32:23 CDT 2009
    ========================================
    No new features.  If you have 1.56 installed OK, you do NOT need
    to install 1.58.
    
    [FIXES]
    Removed prereq of HTTP::Response::Encoding, even though it was never
    used.  Thanks for the catch, Gisle.
    
    
    
    1.56        Thu Jul  9 00:36:54 CDT 2009
    ========================================
    [THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
    For a while, Mech used HTTP::Response::Encoding to try to suss out
    the proper encoding of the page it receives.  Now, it lets
    LWP::UserAgent do the work, and no longer requires
    HTTP::Response::Encoding.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    Added a new dump_headers() method to dump the HTTP response headers.
    
    Added --headers flag to mech-dump to dump the HTTP response headers.
    
    [FIXES]
    Now requires LWP version 5.829 because HTTP::Response has memory
    cycle bugs.
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    Added a few notes to the FAQ, and fixed some incorrect docs.
    
    
    1.55_01     Mon Jul  6 12:17:10 CDT 2009
    ========================================
    This is mostly a bug fix release.  There will be a number of other
    bug fix releases in the next few days.
    
    [FIXED]
    New test server now randomizes the port it runs on.
    
    t/cookies.t should not hang on Windows any more.
    
    META.yml has been updated so the search.cpan.org links should be
    correct.
    
    Passing no_proxy would make LWP::UserAgent barf.  Thanks to Mike
    Schilli for the fix.
    
    Cookies test would fail under Windows.  Fixed, thanks to many people
    reporting it.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    $mech->submit_form() now can specify the form by ID using the form_id
    parameter.
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    The docs used to say that ->stack_depth(0) was an infinite stack
    size.  This is wrong.  Zero will tell Mech not to keep any history.

    ========================================
    [FIXED]
    Improved some error messages in $mech->submit_form().  Thanks to
    Norbert Buchmuller.
    
    
    1.51_03     Thu Nov 20 11:05:49 CST 2008
    ========================================
    [FIXED]
    The $mech->clone() method was not passing the cookie jar to its
    clone properly.  Thanks to David Sainty.
    
    The $mech->back() can fail if there's nothing on the stack to go
    back to.  Thanks to Dave Page.
    
    $mech->follow_link() did not complain if a link could not be found,
    even with autocheck on.  Now it does.  Thanks, Flavio Poletti.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    Added a $mech->form_id() method so you can look up forms by ID.
    
    Added $mech->content_type(), because $mech->ct() is too cryptic.
    
    
    1.51_02     Tue Nov 18 01:30:54 CST 2008
    ========================================
    [STILL BROKEN]
    t/local/click_button.t is still failing its tests for calling ->click
    on an HTML::Form object.  I suspect this is an LWP change, but I
    haven't dug into it enough yet.
    
    [FIXES]
    Fixed the bad credentials API that stomped on LWP::UserAgent's
    credentials() method.  Thanks to Max Maschien and Matt Lawrence.
    
    The $mech->links method now finds <link href="..."> links. Thanks
    to H.Merijn Brand.
    
    Makefile.PL explicitly requires Perl 5.8.0.
    
    URI.pm has to be version 1.36 or else URIs don't get encoded
    correctly.
    
    LWP has to be 5.819 or we have encoding problems.
    
    
    1.51_01     Thu Nov  6 15:13:03 CST 2008
    ========================================
    [FIXES]
    Page history is now working much better.  The $mech->back() method
    should behave more like a browser now.  Most notably, it no longer
    restores the cookie state, just like your browser doesn't restore
    cookie state when you page back.  It also should use much less
    memory.
    
    
    1.50        Sun Sun Oct 26 22:42:46 CDT 2008
    ========================================
    [THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
    WWW::Mechanize now requires version 5.815 of LWP.  This in itself
    may cause problems for you because of changes in how LWP does
    authentication.
    
    
    1.49_01     Sat Sep 27 23:50:04 CDT 2008
    ========================================
    [THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
    The autocheck argument to the constructor is now ON by default,
    unless WWW::Mechanize is being subclassed.  There are so many new
    programmers whose ->get() calls fail unchecked that I'm now putting
    on the seat belts for them.
    
    [FIXES]
    I do believe we are on the way to having all the encoding problems
    ironed out.  This version incorporates a patch from here:
    
        http://code.google.com/p/www-mechanize/issues/detail?id=61
    
    and tests from Miyagawa's WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent
    
        http://search.cpan.org/dist/WWW-Mechanize-DecodedContent/
    
    to finally fix this.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    You can now specify not to set up the proxy, if there is one.  The
    proxy causes problems for Crypt::SSLeay.  For details see:
    http://code.google.com/p/www-mechanize/issues/detail?id=39
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    Fixed internal links.
    
    [INTERNALS]
    Lots of refactoring based on Schwern's "Skimmable Code" talk.

    1.34        Mon Dec 10 00:30:39 CST 2007
    ========================================
    [FIXES]
    Many fixes to make the test suite more portable.
    
    
    1.32        Tue Oct 30 12:02:17 CDT 2007
    ========================================
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    Added dump methods to mirror mech-dump:
    * $mech->dump_images()
    * $mech->dump_links()
    * $mech->dump_forms()
    * $mech->dump_all()
    
    Sanity checks in the WWW::Mechanize::Image constructor.  Every Image
    must have a "url" and "tag" field passed in to it.
    
    
    1.31_02     Thu Oct 25 11:48:29 CDT 2007
    ========================================
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    Added class, class_regex, id and id_regex limiters to find_link()
    and find_all_links().  Thanks to Adriano Ferreira.
    
    
    1.31_01     Mon Sep 17 23:38:03 CDT 2007
    ========================================
    [FIXES]
    Mech tests now pass even if your DNS server gives A records for
    anything (like OpenDNS).  Thanks, Miyagawa!
    
    Searching for the <base href> is now case-inensitive.  A better
    solution would be to actually parse the HTML.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    mech-dump now handles --user and --password arguments for sites
    that require authentication.

    1.29_01     Tue May 22 14:02:55 CDT 2007
    ========================================
    Kevin Falcone and I ask for your assistance in figuring out how to
    handle the warnings thrown by the tests, other than hiding them.
    
    [FIXES]
    *   Overhauled how tainting was done.  Stole code directly from
        Test::Taint.
    *   Have LWP only handle decoding of Content-Encoding, not charset.
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    *   Fixed the docs for $mech->submit_form()'s with_fields arg.
        Thanks, Peteris Krumins.
    
    1.26        Wed May 16 14:21:29 CDT 2007
    ========================================
    [FIXES]
    *   Re-reversed the content decoding.  This is critical for reading from
        sites with gzip on the fly, like Wikipedia.
    *   Content is now properly tainted.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    *   mech-dump can now pass --agent and --agent-alias flags so you can
        fetch from sites like Wikipedia that block LWP user agents.
    
    [INSTALLATION]
    *   The mech-dump program is now always installed.  It no longer is
        presented as an option.

    *   Added find_all_inputs() and find_all_submits() methods.  Thanks,
        Mike O'Regan.
    *   Test::LongString is no longer needed, so has been removed as a
        requirement.

    Added Perl::Critic changes and a perlcriticrc file.
    
    
    1.21_04     Sat Oct  7 21:35:42 CDT 2006
    
    [FIXES]
    *   $mech->content( type => 'text' ) was not freeing memory.  Thanks to
        Cat Okita for finding it.
    
    [INTERNALS]
    *   Made the order of parms to $mech->content() not relevant.
    
    
    1.21_03     Sat Oct  7 01:21:46 CDT 2006
    
    [THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
    *   The methods $mech->form() and $mech->follow() have been removed.
        They've been deprecated since 1.10, which was released in Feb 2005.
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    *   I'm trying to nail down what seems to be a memory leak on long-running
        Mech programs.  I'm stringifying URI::URL objects wherever I can.
    
    [INTERNALS]
    *   No longer uses UNIVERSAL.
    
    
    1.21_02     Wed Oct  4 13:14:30 CDT 2006
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
    
    *   The $mech->stack_depth() setting had no way to say "don't cache any
        pages at all".  How silly!
    
        Now, if you set $mech->stack_depth(0), no history of pages will be kept.
        In the past, it would mean "Keep all pages."  This means that if you want
        to set it to keep all pages, set it to some ridiculously large number.
    
    [DOCUMENTATION]
    *   The docs previously refered to Compress::Gzip instead of Compress::Zlib.
    
    
    1.21_01 Mon Sep 18 17:18:43 CDT 2006
    
    [ENHANCEMENTS]
    *   If Compress::Zlib is installed, gzipped content is now
        accepted and transparently decoded. No additional syntax needed!
        This should save time and bandwidth in a number of cases.
        (Mark Stosberg)
    
    *   Added a put() method.  It also calls a subfunction called
        _SUPER_put that will be removed once LWP::UserAgent supports put().

            [ENHANCEMENTS]
            * Added new two-argument form of credentials() method.
              $mech->credentials($username, $password);
              That provides simpler visiting of password-protected
              resources in the vast majority of cases and still
              allows the other cases to be supported. (Peter Scott)
    
            [BUG FIXES]

            * test suite no longer fails when Test::Warn is missing.
              (CPAN testers, Mark Stosberg)
            * Removed all the testing against live sites. The networking
              code is not actually in Mech anway, and they were prone to
              breaking, as the live sites changed. (Mark Stosberg)
    
    
    1.19_02 Mon Aug  7 23:57:56 CDT 2006
    
            [ENHANCEMENTS]
            * Add new Do-What-I-Mean submit_form() option.
                $mech->submit_form(
                    with_fields => \%data
                );
             That expresses that you want to select the first form contains all
             fields in \%data, and then submit the data to that form. See the docs
             for form_with_fields() and submit_form() for details.

            * The behavior of clone() now copies over the cookie jar, which
              is probably what you expected it did in the first place.
              This fixes bug RT#13541 filed against Test::WWW::Mechanize,
              which was using clone() internally. (Mark Stosberg)
    
            * The correct URL is returned after redirecting. This a regression
              from 1.04 and was reported as RT#9059, RT#12882, and RT#12786.
              The documentation about this has also been clarified that we
              return a URI object, but that it stringifies to the URI itself.

            [TESTS]
            * Makefile.PL now takes four new parms:
                * --live/nolive turns on/off the live tests
                * --local/nolocal turns on/off the local tests
                * --mech-dump/nomech-dump installs/doesn't the mech-dump program
                * --all turns on all tests and installs mech-dump
    
            * Fixed some failures in tests.  Non-existent URLs now have a
              "." postpended to them, so if someone's got a search domain
              with a wildcard (i.e. ignore.us) it'll ignore that.  Also,
              Google's second link is now a https:// link, which some Mechs
              can't handle.  Added a 'url_regex' which now makes it look at
              the second non-https link.  Thanks to Pete Krawczyk.

            [ENHANCEMENTS]
            * Sped up Mech significantly (~20% in some cases).  Images and
              links are extracted from the HTML, and objects are created,
              only when they're actually needed.  This will be a speedup for
              pages where you're only following links, or vice versa.
    
            [THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE]
            * If you've been relying on the $mech->{images} and $mech->{links}
              fields being populated so that you can bypass the $mech->images()
              and $mech->links() accessors, your code will break.  That's OK,
              because you should have been using the accessors all along.

    module directory has changed (eg. "darwin-2level" vs.
    "darwin-thread-multi-2level").
    
    binary packages of perl modules need to be distinguishable between
    being built against threaded perl and unthreaded perl, so bump the
    PKGREVISION of all perl module packages and introduce
    BUILDLINK_RECOMMENDED for perl as perl>=5.8.5nb5 so the correct

    "WWW::Mechanize", or Mech for short, helps you automate interaction
    with a website. It supports performing a sequence of page fetches
    including following links and submitting forms. Each fetched page
    is parsed and its links and forms are extracted. A link or a form
    can be selected, form fields can be filled and the next page can
    be fetched. Mech also stores a history of the URLs you've visited,
    which can be queried and revisited.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
