Subject: TODO failing tests in new perls

Hi Paul, "Devel::Cover 0.76 has not been tested with perl 5.014000. Testing will take place against expected output from perl 5.012003. You may well find failing tests." Devel::Cover should IMHO not be to harsh with new perls. Mostly new perls are right. So with 5.14 those tests should be made rather TODO, and not FAIL. t/e2e/achange.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 1 Failed: 1) Failed test: 1 t/e2e/amd5.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 1 Failed: 1) Failed test: 1 -- Reini Urban

There shouldn't be failing tests in 0.76. Is it possible that you had previously run with an older perl (which doesn't have JSON::PP installed) and then you ran with 5.14 without doing a make clean? That might cause this problem. In any case I've just released 0.77 which has been tested against the just released 5.14.0. If you still have problems please let me know the details. Thanks very much,
