Hi all,

An alpha tarball with the last few months' worth of fixes and 
improvements is making its way toward your favorite cpan mirror as I 
type this.

Authors will notice that they now need to install Software::License 
before doing `./Build dist` and there will be a new file name LICENSE 
added to your MANIFEST (you may want to set your version control to 
ignore LICENSE.)

Windows users will appreciate the new support for Archive::Zip packaging 
with permissions which are acceptable to the pause indexer.


Testers, it would be great if you could run through a sampling of 
distros out-of-band (to not annoy authors with our alpha bugs.)  David, 
do you have a write-up from the procedure you used on this last time?

If all goes well, I hope we can ship a second release this year!

Thanks,
Eric
