11
12 0.20  Wed Oct  3 00:28:13 PDT 2007
13         - Fixed a bug where URI is not absolutized with a hash reference value
14         - Added eg/jp-playstation-store.pl
15
16 0.19  Thu Sep 20 22:42:30 PDT 2007
17         - Try to get HTML encoding from META tags as well, when there's
18           no charset value in HTTP response header.
19
20 0.18  Thu Sep 20 19:49:11 PDT 2007
21         - Fixed a bug where URI is not absolutized when scraper is nested
22         - Use as_XML not as_HTML in 'RAW'
23
24 0.17  Wed Sep 19 19:12:25 PDT 2007
25         - Reverted Term::Encoding support since it causes segfaults
26           (double utf-8 encoding) in some environment
27
28 0.16  Tue Sep 18 04:48:47 PDT 2007
29         - Support 'RAW' and 'TEXT' for TextNode object
30         - Call Term::Encoding from scraper shell if installed
31
32 0.15  Sat Sep 15 21:28:10 PDT 2007
33         - Call env_proxy in scraper CLI
34         - Added $Web::Scraper::UserAgent and $scraper->user_agent accessor to deal
35           with UserAgent object
36         - Don't escape non-ASCII characters into &#xXXXX; in scraper shell 's' and WARN
37
38 0.14  Fri Sep 14 16:06:20 PDT 2007
39         - Fix bin/scraper to work with older Term::ReadLine.
40           (Thanks to Tina Müller [RT:29079])
41         - Now link elements like img@src and a@href are automatically
42           converted to absolute URI using the current URI as a base.
43           Only effective when you do $s->scrape(URI) or $s->scrape(\$html, URI)
44         - Added 'HTML' and its alias 'RAW' to get the HTML chunk inside the tag
45             process "script", "code" => 'RAW';
46           Handy if you want the raw HTML code inside <script> or <style>.
47           (Thanks to charsbar for the suggestion)
48
49 0.13  Sun Sep  2 17:11:08 PDT 2007
50         - Added 'c' and 'c all' command to scraper to generate the
51           code to replay the session
52         - Added 'WARN' as a shortcut to sub { warn $_->as_HTML } on scraper shell like:
53             process "a", WARN; # print 'a' elements as HTML
54         - Added 'search-cpan.pl' and 'rel-tag.pl' to eg/
55
56 0.12  Thu Aug 30 02:39:44 PDT 2007
57         - Added 's' command to scraper to get the HTML source
58         - You can use $tree variable to deal with the HTML::Element object in scraper shell
59         - Give a graceful error message if the given Selector/XPath doesn't compile
60         - Give a better error when number of args in process() seems wrong
61
62 0.11  Tue Aug 28 02:50:01 PDT 2007
63         - Supported hash-reference in process values, like
64           process "a", "people[]", { link => '@href', name => 'TEXT' };
65           See t/09-process_hash.t for its usage.
66
67 0.10  Mon Aug 27 00:53:51 PDT 2007
68         - result now returns the entire stash if called without keys
69         - added bin/scraper CLI
70
71 0.09  Wed Aug 15 10:51:14 PDT 2007
72         - remove Devel::Leak use from tests
73
74 0.08  Tue Aug 14 13:25:16 PDT 2007
75         - Call $tree->delete after the callback to avoid memory leaks by TreeBuilder.
76           (Thanks to k.daiba for the report)
77
78 0.07  Sat May 12 16:23:51 PDT 2007
79         - Updated dependencies for HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath
80
81 0.06  Sat May 12 15:47:27 PDT 2007
82         - Now don't use decoded_content to work with new H::R::Encoding
83
84 0.05  Wed May  9 18:21:22 PDT 2007
85         - Added (less DSL-ish) Web::Scraper->define(sub { ... }) syntax
86         - Fixed bug where the module dies if there's no encoding found in HTTP response headers
87         - Added more examples in eg/
88         - When we get value using callback, pass HTML::Element object as $_, in addition to $_[0]
89           (Suggested by Matt S. Trout)
90         - If the expression (1st argument to process()) starts with "/", it's
91           treated as a direct XPath and no Selector-to-XPath conversion is done.
92
93 0.04  Wed May  9 00:55:32 PDT 2007
94         - *API CHANGE* Now scraper {} returns Web::Scraper object and not closure.
95           You should call ->scrape() to get the response back.
96           (Suggested by Marcus Ramberg)
97
98           I loved the code returning closure, but this is more compatible to
99           scrapi.rb API and hopefully less confusing to people.
100
101 0.03  Tue May  8 23:04:13 PDT 2007
102         - use 'TEXT' rather than 'content' to grab text from element
103           to be more compatible with scrapi
104         - Added unit tests using Test::Base
105         - Refactored internal code for easier reading
106         - chained callbacks are now passed HTML::Element, not HTML, to avoid double HTML parsing
107         - Implemented callbacks (iterator) API
108         - Added 'process_first' to be compatible with scrapi
109
110 0.02  Tue May  8 20:03:37 PDT 2007
111         - Added dependencies to Makefile.PL
112
113 0.01  Tue May  8 04:05:59 2007
