URI-1.16 should now be on CPAN. The main news is that I changed uri_escape() as suggested by Ilmari. The changes since 1.15 are: URI::Escape::uri_escape default has changed. Reserved characters are now escaped when no second argument is provided. The perl5.004 backwards compatibility patching taking place in the Makefile.PL should now work for MacPerl. Patch by KIMURA Takeshi <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>. URI::WithBase now overrides the can() method and delegate it to the URI member. This also affects the URI::URL behaviour. Patch by Sean M. Burke <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>.
