Release Notes for PDL 2.4.11_010 --------------------------

General Notes:

 +--------------------------------------------------------+
 | WARNING!                                               |
 |   This release uses an experimental version of the     |
 |   PDL::NiceSlice module based on Filter::Simple that   |
 |   is being debugged for platform and module version    |
 |   issues.  To use the legacy code, just set your       |
 |   PDL_NICESLICE_ENGINE environment variable to the     |
 |   value Filter::Util::Call instead of Filter::Simple   |
 |                                                        |

 * Another quick CPAN developers release

   - It is a snapshot of the current git development tree
     and everything may not work correctly or have complete
     documentation.

   - These release notes may not be fully complete.  Please
     see Changes (from the git log) for full details.

   - All tests may not pass, especially ones corresponding
     to issues in Known_problems.

   - Manual build/install is recommended although the
     cpan shell may be used by specifying the distribution
     path rather than just the module name, e.g.:

       cpan> get  CHM/PDL-2.4.11_010.tar.gz
       cpan> make CHM/PDL-2.4.11_010.tar.gz
       cpan> test CHM/PDL-2.4.11_010.tar.gz
       cpan> look CHM/PDL-2.4.11_010.tar.gz

Highlights:

 * Setting $PDL::NiceSlice::debug_filter will cause
   the PDL::NiceSlice with the Filter::Simple engine
   to print the filtered source to STDOUT.  E.g., put
   BEGIN { $PDL::NiceSlice::debug_filter = 1; } at the
   top of source.pm (say).  Running

     perl -c source.pm > source.pmc

   will print out the PDL::NiceSlice filtered code to
   STDOUT in the source.pmc file.

 * Support for reading IDL save files added (thanks
   to Joe Hourcle)!

 * New PDL::Doc::add_module() routine to add a module's
   POD (with PDL::Doc conventions) to the PDL docs
   on-line database.

 * Work around for PDL::GIS::Proj build failures with
   proj-4.8.0.
