2019-03-06: Net::Duo 1.02

This is an alternative Perl interface to the Duo Security second-factor authentication service. This release supports the new required pagination for returning lists of users and integrations, which will take effect on March 15, 2019. It does this in the simplest way possible: just making repeated calls until it retrieves the full list.

With this release, I'm also orphaning the package. I wrote this package originally for Stanford, and had thought I'd continue to find a reason to maintain it after I left. But I'm not currently maintaining any Duo integrations that would benefit from it, and my current employer doesn't use Perl. Given that, I want to make it obvious that it's not keeping up with the current Duo API and you would be better off using the Perl code that Duo themselves provide.

That said, I think the object-oriented model this package exposes is nicer and makes for cleaner Perl code when interacting with Duo. If you agree, please feel welcome to pick up maintenance, and let me know if you want the web site redirected to its new home.

This release also updates test code, supporting files, and documentation to my current standards, since I was making a release anyway.

You can get the current release from the Net::Duo distribution page.

2019-03-25: Spring haul

I think it's becoming safe to call this spring. For once, it's a rainy, cold spring in Northern California. This is a collection of relatively random things (mostly pre-orders) that I've picked up in the last couple of months.

Elizabeth Bear — Ancestral Night (sff)
Robert Jackson Bennett — City of Stairs (sff)
Curtis C. Chen — Kangaroo Too (sff)
Maddox Hahn — The Love Song of Numo and Hammerfist (sff)
Karoliina Korhonen — Finnish Nightmares (graphic novel)
Ann Leckie — The Raven Tower (sff)
Jenn Lyons — The Ruin of Kings (sff)
Cal Newport — Digital Minimalism (nonfiction)
Noelle Stevenson — Nimona (graphic novel)
Foxfeather Zenkova, et al. — Dry Season Only (nonfiction)

I already read and reviewed Hahn's book, and have read (but not yet written the review of) The Raven Tower by Leckie.
