HTML::HTML5::DOM::ReleaseNotes - not quite a change log
These release notes will not be updated for every release (see minor) but are intended to provide important news, announce major new features, etc. For a full change log, see the "Changes" file included in the distribution.
HTML::HTML5::DOM is the culmination of an idea I've been working on in some form or another for about six months. The idea is to build an HTML DOM layer on top of XML::LibXML.
XML::LibXML is not really designed to be extensible in this way, so to start with I needed to write XML::LibXML::Augment, a module to assist in subclassing XML::LibXML's node classes.
With that in place I was free to start implementing the HTML5 DOM. Version 0.001 is a relatively modest proof of concept. There are still a number of methods that are only partially implemented. Many more have not even been attempted yet. But it's my hope that eventually the whole HTML5 DOM will be covered.
Plans can change.
submitmethod might be better off returning an HTTP::Request object rather than Web::Magic.
