       Template::Manual::Credits - Author and contributor credits

       The Template Toolkit began its life as the "Text::MetaText" module,
       originally released to CPAN around 1996.	 This itself was the public
       manifestation of	an earlier template processing system I	developed
       while working at	Peritas	(now Knowledge Pool -

       "Text::MetaText"	was the	prototype - the	one we always planned to throw
       away.  It did the job well, showing us what worked and what didn't,
       what was	good and what was bad, and gave	us some	ideas about what could
       be done better, given the chance	to start again from scratch.

       Some time late in 1998 I	threw away the prototype and started work on
       the Template Toolkit. By	then I was working at Canon Research Centre
       Europe Ltd.  (CRE), involved in a general research programme related to
       web publishing and dynamic content generation. The first	alpha release
       was in June 1999, followed by numerous more alpha and beta releases
       culminating in 1.00 being released on 2nd December 1999.

       A month or so later, work had begun on version 2.00. The	plan was to
       get the template	language relatively stable in version 1.00 and not
       worry too much about performance	or other internal matters. Then,
       version 2.00 would follow to improve performance, clean up the
       architecture and	fix anything that, with	the benefit of hindsight, we
       thought could be	improved. As it	happens, me starting work on version
       2.00 coincided with Doug	Steinwand sending me his parser	variant	which
       compiled	templates to Perl code,	giving a major performance boost. As
       well as the speedups, there are a whole host of significant new
       features	in version 2.00, and a greatly improved	internal architecture.
       Apart from a few	minor "fixups" the template directives and language
       have remained the same as in version 1.00

       Version 2.00 was	available in beta release form in July 2000, just in
       time for	the 4th	Perl Conference	where version 1.00 was awarded "Best
       New Perl	Module".  After	another	extended beta release period, version
       2.00 was	released on 1st	December 2000.

       Version 3 has been in development ever since.
