Log Message:
Update to 1.10:

        * Fixed bug where images inside of links would not be found.

        * Fixed test failures because of Google changes.  Thanks to
          Offer Kaye and others who sent in patches.

        * More samples in the FAQ.  Thanks to Joshua Gatcomb.

        * Added explanation of running live tests against Google in Makefile.PL.

1.08    Fri Dec 24 01:01:06 CST 2004
        * Added find_image() and find_all_images().

1.06    Wed Dec  8 14:58:39 CST 2004
        * Now uses the base pragma instead of setting @ISA.

1.05_04 Fri Nov  5 23:35:38 CST 2004
        * Added WWW::Mechanize::Image object for representing images.
        * Improved the regex on the URL for META tags.
        * Added --images flag to mech-dump.

        * When parsing urls out of meta refresh tags, "url" may now be
          uppercase (RT#8230)

        * Behavior of back() fixed in a number of cases (RT#8109  reported by
          Josh Purinton, patched by Dominique Quatravaux)

        * Mark figured out to how to prevent his text editor from putting tabs
          into the code. Andy's blood pressure dropped slightly.

1.05_03 Sun Oct 31 20:54:33 CST 2004

        * click_button() has a new input option for HTML::Form::SubmitInput
          objects (DOMQ)

        * content() has new options to return the page formatted
          as text, with a <base href> added. (RT#8087, patch by
          Dominique Quatravaux)

        * update_html() method has been added, which can be used
          to modify the HTML that Mech parses. It should be sub-classed
          instead of _parse_html(), which has been deprecated.
          (RT#8087, patch by Dominique Quatravaux)

        * select() has new option to select an option by number
          (RT#5789, Scott Lanning)

        * WWW::Mechanize::Link now has support providing all the
          attributes of the link through a new attrs() method, which
          returns them as a hashref. This is a replacement for the
          alt() method, added in 1.05_01. It's not backwards
          compatible with that, but, hey, that's what developer
          releases are for. (RT#8092, Rob Casey and Mark Stosberg)

        * Upload <input type="file" ... > does not use the default
          value to prevent attacks, patch by Jan Pazdziora (RT #7843).

        * Improved tests and documentation for select() (RT#5789,
          Scott Lanning)

        * Improve taint-safeness on Perl 5.6.1 (RT#8042, patch by
          Dominique Quatravaux)

        * Added tests for click_button() (RT#8061, by Dominique

        * Require URI 1.25, fixing bug which exposed itself in
          WWW::Mechanize (RT#3048)

        * Move select() to better location in docs. Document and
          test the return values.  The return value is now "1" on
          success instead of the undocumented behavior of returning
          a form value. (RT#6138, spotted by MJD, patched by Mark

        * Possible matching tags for the find_link() 'tag_regex'
          attribute are now documented. (RT#2989, by Mark Stosberg)

        * refactored find_link() to avoid use of eval(). This should
          improve performance a bit and avoid potential security
          issues. (Mark Stosberg)

1.05_02 Sat Oct  2 16:55:59 CDT 2004
        * Added the $mech->save_content( $filename ) function, so you
          can dump stuff to files easily.

1.05_01 Thu Sep 30 21:04:44 CDT 2004

        * set_visible() doesn't stop setting values when it finds a zero.

        * WWW::Mechanize::Link has a new, easier to remember constructor
          interface. The old one is still supported. Support for including
          an 'alt' attribute was added, which is useful for <area> links.
          (RT #3317). Thanks to Mark Stosberg.

        * When links are extracted from <area> tags, the ALT attribute will
          be captured and become part of the WWW::Mechanize::Link object.
          (RT #3317). Patch by Mark Stosberg.

        * t/mech-dump.t is now more portable (RT #7690)

        * t/local/follow.t has new tests to confirm that 'follow*' functions
          work with characters like o-umlaut, even when the o-umlaut is
          encoded in the HTML, but not in the call to follow(). (RT #2416)
          By Mark Stosberg.
