CPAN::Changes::ReleaseUser Contributed Perl DocumentaCPAN::Changes::Release(3)

       CPAN::Changes::Release -	Information about a particular release

	   my $rel = CPAN::Changes::Release->new(
	       version => '0.01',
	       date    => '2009-07-06',

	       { group => 'THINGS THAT MAY BREAK YOUR CODE' },
	       'Return a Foo object instead of a Bar object in foobar()'

       A changelog is made up of one or	more releases. This object provides
       access to all of	the key	data that embodies a release including the
       version number, date of release,	and all	of the changelog information
       lines. Any number of changelog lines can	be grouped together under a

   new(	%args )
       Creates a new release object, using %args as the	default	data.

   version( [ $version ] )
       Gets/sets the version number for	this release.

   date( [ $date ] )
       Gets/sets the date for this release.

   note( [ $note ] )
       Gets/sets the note for this release.

   changes( [ $group ] )
       Gets the	list of	changes	for this release as a hashref of group/changes
       pairs. If a group name is specified, an array ref of changes for	that
       group is	returned. Should that group not	exist, undef is	returned.

   add_changes(	[ \%options ], @changes	)
       Appends a list of changes to the	release. Specifying a "group" option
       appends them to that particular group. NB: the default group is
       represented by and empty	string.

	   # Append to default group
	   $release->add_changes( 'Added foo() function' );

	   # Append to a particular group
	   $release->add_changes( { group => 'Fixes' },	'Fixed foo() function' );

   set_changes(	[ \%options ], @changes	)
       Replaces	the existing list of changes with the supplied values.
       Specifying a "group" option will	only replace change items in that

   clear_changes( )
       Clears all changes from the release.

   groups( sort	=> \&sorting_function )
       Returns a list of current groups	in this	release.

       If sort is provided, groups are sorted according	to the given function.
       If not, they are	sorted alphabetically.

   add_group( @groups )
       Creates an empty	group under the	names provided.

   delete_group( @groups )
       Deletes the groups of changes specified.

   delete_empty_groups(	)
       Deletes all groups that don't contain any changes.

   serialize( group_sort => \&sorting_function )
       Returns the release data	as a string, suitable for inclusion in a
       Changes file.

       If group_sort is	provided, change groups	are sorted according to	the
       given function. If not, groups are sorted alphabetically.

   get_group( [	$name ]	)
       Returns the internal CPAN::Changes::Group object	for the	group $name.

       If $name	is not specified, the "default"	group "('')" will be returned.

       If $name	does not exist,	a CPAN::Changes::Group object will be created,
       and returned.

   attach_group( $group_object )
       Attach a	CPAN::Changes::Group object to the "::Release".	Note that the
       name is not specified, as it is instead determined from

   group_values( sort => \&sorting_function )
       Works like "groups" but instead returns "CPAN::Changes::Group"
       compatible objects.
