Rt 1.3.15


#1

Ok. I’m up way past my bedtime tonight. But I just rolled
RT 1.3.15. The big fixes here are that I tracked the
Mail::Field bug down to tobias’ $SIG{DIE} handler.

This means that you no longer have to change system behavior
for certain CPAN modules when installin RT2.

I’ve also replaced the Mail::Mailer based message sending
for the moment, as it just wasn’t working. In its place
is a simple pipe to sendmail. If you want to install RT 1.3.15
and are not running sendmail 8, you really want to have a look
at lib/RT/Action/SendEmail.pm

I have images of Marc in well worn combat fatigues, covered in mud,
sweat and blood, knife in one hand and PSION int he other, being
restrained by several other people, screaming “Let me at it!
Just let me at it!” Eichin standing calmly by with something
automated, milspec, and likely recoilless.

Do you tag these releases with a particular tag in CVS? That would help
lots.

Are you having weird AUTOLOAD problems with MailTools 1.1401 ?

Each release should be tagged with rt-major-minor-patch.
This release should have been tagged as rt-1-3-15

That was the “bug” tht had been fixed by redoing the $SIG{DIE} handler.
In short, it seems that Mail::Mailer was trying to find the right module
inside an eval. RT wasn’t properly just letting the die inside the eval
happen. The new $SIG{DIE} handler seems to make this better.
