4         - Added 'c' and 'c all' command to scraper to generate the
5           code to replay the session

7             process "a", WARN; # print 'a' elements as HTML
8
9 0.12  Thu Aug 30 02:39:44 PDT 2007
10         - Added 's' command to scraper to get the HTML source
11         - You can use $tree variable to deal with the HTML::Element object in scraper shell
12         - Give a graceful error message if the given Selector/XPath doesn't compile
13         - Give a better error when number of args in process() seems wrong
14
15 0.11  Tue Aug 28 02:50:01 PDT 2007
16         - Supported hash-reference in process values, like
17           process "a", "people[]", { link => '@href', name => 'TEXT' };
18           See t/09-process_hash.t for its usage.
19
20 0.10  Mon Aug 27 00:53:51 PDT 2007
21         - result now returns the entire stash if called without keys
22         - added bin/scraper CLI
23
24 0.09  Wed Aug 15 10:51:14 PDT 2007
25         - remove Devel::Leak use from tests
26
27 0.08  Tue Aug 14 13:25:16 PDT 2007
28         - Call $tree->delete after the callback to avoid memory leaks by TreeBuilder.
29           (Thanks to k.daiba for the report)
30
31 0.07  Sat May 12 16:23:51 PDT 2007
32         - Updated dependencies for HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath
33
34 0.06  Sat May 12 15:47:27 PDT 2007
35         - Now don't use decoded_content to work with new H::R::Encoding
36
37 0.05  Wed May  9 18:21:22 PDT 2007
38         - Added (less DSL-ish) Web::Scraper->define(sub { ... }) syntax
39         - Fixed bug where the module dies if there's no encoding found in HTTP response headers
40         - Added more examples in eg/
41         - When we get value using callback, pass HTML::Element object as $_, in addition to $_[0]
42           (Suggested by Matt S. Trout)
43         - If the expression (1st argument to process()) starts with "/", it's
44           treated as a direct XPath and no Selector-to-XPath conversion is done.
45
46 0.04  Wed May  9 00:55:32 PDT 2007
47         - *API CHANGE* Now scraper {} returns Web::Scraper object and not closure.
48           You should call ->scrape() to get the response back.
49           (Suggested by Marcus Ramberg)
50
51           I loved the code returning closure, but this is more compatible to
52           scrapi.rb API and hopefully less confusing to people.
53
54 0.03  Tue May  8 23:04:13 PDT 2007
55         - use 'TEXT' rather than 'content' to grab text from element
56           to be more compatible with scrapi
57         - Added unit tests using Test::Base
58         - Refactored internal code for easier reading
59         - chained callbacks are now passed HTML::Element, not HTML, to avoid double HTML parsing
60         - Implemented callbacks (iterator) API
61         - Added 'process_first' to be compatible with scrapi
62
63 0.02  Tue May  8 20:03:37 PDT 2007
64         - Added dependencies to Makefile.PL
