Last week, I attended meta::hack, the MetaCPAN hackathon
in Chicago. I'm the maintainer for CPAN Testers, the
central database for CPAN users to send in test reports on CPAN distributions
and one of MetaCPAN's data sources. I asked to join them so I could improve how
MetaCPAN consumes CPAN Testers data, and ensure the stability and reliability
of that consumption.
Here's a detailed log of what I was able to accomplish, and information on the
new development of CPAN Testers.

This week, I released a new version of
Beam::Emitter. A lot has changed since
the first releases, so here's some details on all the new features.
Beam::Emitter is a role for turning your classes into event emitters. Being an
event emitter allows other classes to subscribe to important events from your
object. Subscribers can use these events to perform additional tasks, transform
your object's data, or otherwise extend and enhance your class. Beam::Emitter
makes your class extensible by allowing you to provide specific places for
custom code to run.
Since the 1.000 release last year, Beam::Emitter has gotten quite a few new
features and bug fixes to make it easier to use and safer for your code.

A new trial of Log::Any (1.044) has been
This release has a couple changes that make Log::Any a bit more
- Passing in objects to formatted log methods now handles objects that
overload stringify correctly. Previously, these objects would be given
to Data::Dumper, which violates object encapsulation. Thanks Philipp
- The imported Log::Any object (
use Log::Any '$log') can now be named
Since CPAN Testers is still catching up
from its little bit of downtime a few weeks
ago, I won't be releasing this
as stable until I get some success reports in. So, you've got some time
to test this against your own codebase if you need to. Please report
any issues to the Log-Any Github
Since CPANTesters for Log-Any
are all showing green for last week's trial
I've pushed a new standard release of Log::Any 1.042 to

I've just released a new Log::Any
trial release. This release improves performance immensely when there
are no log output adapters configured. This release also now returns the
formatted log string from logging methods, allowing the log message to
be used by a
Because of these changes, there is a very small chance of an
incompatibility: Log::Any logging methods used to return whatever the
configured adapter returned (this was undocumented and was not
a feature). Now they always return the formatted log message.
So if you depend on Log::Any, please give
a test run through and report any issues to the Log-Any Github
