I'm not sure this is a positive change on their part.

I'm not either, even if there are good reasons for the feature, changing defaults is icky icky icky :)

Actually, the more I think about it, the more I consider this a bug.

Actually I'm sure its a bug.

  • It is not documented properly (not in Perl::Tidy).
  • there are no tests for it.
  • I just checked, and this has been the behaviour of Perl-Tidy since 05-Nov-2002. Changing the defaults after 8+ years is just dumb. jswartz was smart enough to add this feature, he should have been smart enough to change his perltidy config file :) and not mess with the defaults

You should definitely report this :)
