Test::Simple, Test::More and Test::Builder are going to be upgraded, with some breaking changes.

Chad ‘Exodist’ Granum goes into details about what and why. It is important that the developer releases are tested by as many people as possible. If you have tests then it is very likely one of these modules will be in play somewhere, so please test the developer releases and send feedback.
