Hi Welle,

Some of the tests have not been able to pass for various known and unknown reasons; this happens for 0.92 as well. For now, if installing with cpan/cpanminus, then cpan -T or cpanm --notest respectively will have to be used to skip tests when installing.

Not all of the tests which fail have been investigated, and some failures are platform-specific (e.g. fileevent on macOS).

I believe all of the test failures reported in this ticket have been fixed or marked TODO. Some of these needed workarounds for Tk 8.5.9 included in macOS.

0.94: text2.t

0.95: canIndex.t, entryValidate.t, font.t (TODO), ptk-compat2.t, ttkEntryValidate.t, wmForget.t

0.96: fileevent.t and fileevent2.t (both TODO)
