MIME::Types is a library to make it easy to discover the MIME Content-Type
based on the filename (extension) provided, similar to the results that one
would get from mailcap discovery in other languages.
MIME::Types is originally based on, and is generally kept in sync with, the
Perl version of the same name.
In MIME::Types 1.13, there have been a few API changes; one of the changes
is incompatible with previous versions. This will only affect users of the
library who have created custom MIME Content-Type objects.
Future versions of MIME::Types will see other changes, but there are
discussions surrounding the exact changes that will be made, as there are
still a number of MIME Content-Types present that are not IANA-registered
and are not being handled properly because of the source data. There are
ways that this can be dealt with, but I am attempting to coordinate with
Mark Overmeer, the author of Perl's MIME::Types.
