The Interchange Development Group is pleased to announce the release of
Interchange 5.5.3. We expect this to be the last development release on
the road to Interchange 5.6.0. Please take a few minutes to download this
development release, install it, test it, and report your experience
(along with your operating system, CPU type, Perl version, database, etc.)
to the interchange-users mailing list.
Make sure to read the UPGRADE document for information about upgrade
procedures and incompatible changes introduced by this development
Notable changes since Interchange 5.5.2:
* Added control of "upsert" behavior to the database abstraction layer.
You can now require insert-only or update-only behavior, as well as
upsert, which remains the default.
* Allow the table editor to use a different widget type when the data is
empty, for example to show a date or time field when a value exists, but
a data or time select box if not.
* Removed copied CPAN modules from the extra/ directory:
Business::UPS - part of Bundle::InterchangeKitchenSink
File::Spec - now distributed with Perl itself
Tie::ShadowHash - part of Bundle::Interchange
URI::URL - part of Bundle::Interchange
* Added a new tool "iclint" for quick-and-dirty ITL syntax checking.
