Release 1.19
URI::Heuristic will guess better on strings
like "". It used to think that
the numbers before ":" was a scheme.
URI::WithBase will not keep the full history of
any base URI's base URI etc. This used to make
these objects grow into to monsters for some
web spiders.
URI::URL->new("foo", "bar")->base used to return
a "URI" object. Now an URI::URL object is returned
Deal properly with file:///-URIs.
2001-12-30 Gisle Aas <>

characters are now escaped when no second argument is
The perl5.004 backwards compatibility patching taking place
in the Makefile.PL should now work for MacPerl.

Release 1.15
[This release was made just to document the changes that went
into the (unreleased) URI-1.13 but never made it into this
change-log. There is no functional difference between the 1.14
and 1.15 release.]
2001-07-18 Gisle Aas <>
Release 1.14
The module failed on perl5.004 because \z is not supported
in regexps. The Makefile.PL will now try to patch the module
to be compatible.
2001-05-15 Gisle Aas <>
Release 1.13 (never made it to CPAN) now conforms to RFC 2732 which specify how literal IPv6
addresses are to be included in URLs.

2001-04-23 Gisle Aas <>
Release 1.12
URI->new($u, $scheme) does no longer fail if given a badly
formatted scheme string.
URI::WithBase's clone and base method was basically just
broken. This also affected the URI::URL subclass.
The clone() method did not copy the base, and updating
the base with the base method always set it to "1".
2001-02-27 Gisle Aas <>
Release 1.11
The t/heuristic.t test relied on the fact that ''
was not registered in DNS. This is no longer true.
The penguins at Bouvet Island will hopefully be ignorant
of Perl forever.
2001-01-10 Gisle Aas <>
Release 1.10
The $u->query_form method will now escape spaces in
form keys or values as '+' (instead of '%20'). This also
affect the $mailto_uri->header() method. This is actually
the wrong thing to do, but this practise is now even
documented in official places like
so we might as well follow the stream.
URI::Heuristic did not work for domain-names with dashes '-'
in them. Fixed.
Documented that $uri->xxx($1) might not work.
2000-08-16 Gisle Aas <>
Release 1.09
