AKA the “reduce the CPAN Testers FAIL results” release.
I also fixed a minor bug on Solaris, and documented a difference in the handling of empty attribute values on Mac OS X 10.4 vs. 10.5. See File::ExtAttr on CPAN soon.
1.09 2009-03-07 - (richdawe) Add note to README about needing to install package that provides the headers <attr/attributes.h> and <attr/xattr.h>. - (richdawe) Fix RT #31970: "OS X: setfattr fails to set empty value". According to the CPAN Testers results, this works on Mac OS X 10.5. Skip the "empty" tests on Mac OS X 10.4 and earlier. Document issue. - (richdawe) Fix #34394: "Test suite should skip on filesystems with no xattr support when run non-interactively" on Linux. When run interactively, it will suggest what you need to do, to get the test suite to pass. - (richdawe) Fix RT #37889: "Crash when operating on a closed file handle on Solaris". This was due to using an uninitialised directory handle.
