FAQ
FYI -- I've uploaded the latest dev release. This does not (yet)
integrate the "inc bundling" branch, but has other significant bug
fixes. It also has the new, quieter interface.

*** API CHANGE ***
- The prepare_metadata() method used to take a YAML::Node object as an
argument for modification. The method now takes no arguments and just
returns a hash reference of metadata. [David Golden]

Enhancements
- Command line options may be set via the PERL_MB_OPT environment
variable (similar to PERL_MM_OPT in ExtUtils::MakeMaker)

Bug fixes:
- Updated PPM generation to PPM v4 (RT#49600) [Olivier Mengue]
- When c_source is specified, the directory scan will include additional,
less-common C++ extensions (RT49298) [David Golden]
- When module_name is not supplied, no packlist was being written; fixed
by guessing module_name from dist_version_from or the directory name
(just like ExtUtils::Manifest does without NAME) [David Golden]
- Bumped IO::File prereq to fix binmode failures in PPMMaker on Perl
prior to 5.8.8 [David Golden]

Other:
- Replaced use of YAML.pm with YAML::Tiny; Module::Build::YAML is now
based on YAML::Tiny as well [David Golden]
- Reduced amount of console output under normal operation (use --verbose
to see all output)

    I've got a new version.pm release hitting CPAN as we speak, specifically
    to deal with the pure Perl code on Perl 5.6.2 through 5.8.0 inclusive.
    The code that tried to guess whether something was a v-string or not
    (prior to 5.8.1, we didn't have magic v-strings) wasn't so smart about it.

    I've improved the heuristic and have only delayed posting it to CPAN
    because I wanted to do more testing. I'll send a diff for the embedded
    version.pm code in M::B after the weekend (going out of town).

    Just FYI

    John
