Milestone: 10.010.1

The current version was building when this ticket was created, and all the deps have been checked for their interdependencies.

Hardly anybody uses this, deferring to 10.1.

2.15 (2020-08)

  • Added --output-legacy-dates and --output-field-replace options to aid in outputting legacy bibtex format in tool and non-tool mode
  • UTF-8 filenames supported on Windows
  • INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE - datasource globbing now has to be turned on explicitly with the --glob-datasources option. Globbing causes some issues with UTF8 encoding detection on some OSes and since it is a niche requirement, it is turned off by default.
  • DEPRECATION WARNING - The BBLXML output format will be removed in version 4. It is rarely used and complicates test suite maintenance considerably.

This needs a biblatex-3.15 version, current is 3.15a. There is a CHANGES.md file at https://sourceforge.net/projects/biblatex/files/biblatex-3.15/ but it is too long and detailed (re the minutiae of using biblatex) to quote here.

For dependencies:

According to Build.PL, Encode::Locale is now required. But running Build.PL on a system which lacks that, it does not get reported as 'is not installed'. We currently pull it in via LWP::Protocol::https', It could be moved to a direct dependency in perl-modules, but I already have Text::CSV_XS omitted from the biber page because it is a recommneded dep of Text::CSV.

Changes in runtime deps for modules supplied with biber: Biber::DataModel now needs List::AllUtils which is already a dep. Biber::Input::file::bibtex now needs Digest::MD5 which is a core module.
