release 1.46

Just a quick note about a new release of the script I use to publish new software releases. I'm moving more packages to Module::Build, and I noticed I'd been pre-generating release tarballs for Perl modules and then using the release script to do the rest of the work. It supports building a release tarball from the Git repository, though, and by plugging into that machinery I could ensure that I run the test suite with the released code.

That's now implemented for the Module::Build build system. Although I do think it's odd that ./Build disttest doesn't actually build a distribution, just acts like it will and then runs a test.

You can get the latest version from my miscellaneous scripts page.
