01733d0f 35.90042 - 2013-06-14
4 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
5 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 6 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
7 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
8 plugin
9 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
10 ask for encoding
11 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
12 caused trouble.
01733d0f 13
c287088e 145.90041 - 2013-06-14
15 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
16 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
17 this fixes all of them.
18 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
19 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
20 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
21 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
22 number decimals
23 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
24
c8d9e6f4 255.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 26 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
27 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
28 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 29 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
701e20e5 30 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on perl 5.17.11
31 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 32 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
33 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 34 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
35 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 36 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 37 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
38 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
39 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
40 termination).
8275d3b9 41 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
42 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
43 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
44 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
45 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
46 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 47 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
48 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
49 for more.
d18964f7 50 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 51
f653d2c8 525.90030 - 2013-04-12
53 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
54 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
55 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 56 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
57 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
58 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
59 resolve manually.
18df061a 60 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
61 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
62 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 63 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 64 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
65 - smarter valiation around action attributes.
5490e075 66
675.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 68 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
69 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
70 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
71 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
72 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
73 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 74 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
75 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
76 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
77 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 78 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 79 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 80 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 81 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 82
dbacbce4 835.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
07ec95ca 84 - Fix for perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
2fe6ed83 85 - Fix for perl 5.8. RT#61122
8c848c33 86 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on perl5.8
87 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 88
02f4beca 895.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
90 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
91 HTTP::Message.
92
d6ae5104 935.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 94 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 95
96 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
97 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
98
99 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
100
101 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
102 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
103
104 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
105
0df490ef 106 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
107 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
108 of request or response classes.
109
f0580bff 1105.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 111 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
112 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 113 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 114 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 115 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 116 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
117 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
118 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
119 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
120
cfdd890d 1215.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 122 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 123 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
124 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
125 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 126
f444811b 1275.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
128
258733f1 129 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
130 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
131
aa3897db 1325.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
133
134 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
135 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
136 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
137 of Catalyst.
138
1395.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
140
eff60019 141 New features:
142 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
143
a7d2a530 144 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 145 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
146 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
147
40c06ae4 148 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
149 are supplied.
150
151 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
152 top level config.
a7d2a530 153
b334a4de 154 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
155
156 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
157
3239be86 1585.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
159
57746b80 160 Distribution META.yml changes:
161 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
162 mis-parses from the documentation.
163 - x_authority key added.
164
9a649d25 165 Bug fixes:
166 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
167 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
168
1e089329 169 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
170 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
171 is less than helpful.
172
38e43e65 173 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
174 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
175 in bleadperl. RT#76437
176
2037f03f 177 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 178 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
179
d8ccdd9d 180 Documentation:
181 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
182 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
183 directly.
184 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 185 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 186 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 187
2114ee9f 1885.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
189
f7ac80ef 190 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 191 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
192 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
193 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
194 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
195 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
196 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
197 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 198 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
199 applications.
df894348 200 - --background option for the server script now only closes
201 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
202 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 203 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
204 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 205 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
206 callback.
f7ac80ef 207
fed36d61 2085.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 209
0c17b66d 210 Bug fixes:
211 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
212 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
213 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
214 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
215
8d196862 2165.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
217
0607947f 218 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 219 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
220 refactoring.
221
0607947f 222 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
223 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
224 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
225 included when not running from a checkout.
226
80267996 227 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
228
8529a7ea 229 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 230 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
231 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 232
d0cacee7 233 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
234
af09d56c 2355.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
236
d0cfd993 237 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 238 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 239 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
240 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
241
242 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
243 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
244 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
245
246 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 247 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 248 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
249 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
250
251 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
252
0aba7d92 253 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 254 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
255 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
256 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
257 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
258 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
259
d0cfd993 260 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 261 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 262 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
263 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
264
e6bcfe8e 265 Tests:
3d2c4feb 266 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 267
e1e5366d 268 Documentation:
269 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
270 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
271 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
272
e6bcfe8e 273 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
274 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
275 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
276
00341d81 2775.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
278
0d7bf3a9 279 New features:
280 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
281 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
282 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
283 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
284 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
285
1ce9c7f6 286 Bug fixes:
287 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 288 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
289 over that.
a465926f 290 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
291 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
292 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 293
4c21ba3b 2945.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
295
27b0a436 296 New features:
297 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
298 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
299 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
300 get them passed through to the application.
301
d685f38e 302 Doumentation:
303 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
304 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
305 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
306 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
307
f4de8c99 308 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 309 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
310 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
311 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
312 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
313 a value.
314 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
315 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
316 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 317
c7250231 318 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
319 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
320
849b1b24 3215.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
322
ab6c6d3d 323 New features:
324
325 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
326 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
327 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
328 whereas before you had to say:
329 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
330 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
331 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
332 the two.
333
cf49ace4 334 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
335 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
336 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
337 scripts in the application.
338 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
339 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
340 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
341 otherwise).
342
ab6c6d3d 343 Documentation:
344
345 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
346 to avoid confusion
347 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
348 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
349 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
350 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
351 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
352 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
353 and provide an alternative.
354
4ec26b6c 3555.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
356
65420d46 357 Bug fixes:
358
359 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
360 MyApp->engine_class.
361
a253d527 3625.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 363 Bug fixes:
364
365 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
366
e95b2b49 367 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
368 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
369 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
370 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
371 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
372 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
373
fabe0bc6 374 Enhancements:
375
376 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
377 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
378
5cb939e8 379 Backward compatibility fixes:
380
381 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
382 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
383
14eb7697 384 Documentation fixes:
385
386 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
387 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 388
d536010b 389 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 390
824a5eb0 391 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
392
836a51a2 3935.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 394 Backward compatibility fixes:
395
396 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
397 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
398 circumstances.
399 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
400
c47cd2ce 401 Documentation fixes:
402
403 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
404 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
405 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
406
3143ee5f 4075.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
408
409 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
410 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
411
412 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
413
414 Cut another release.

c20710a1 420 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 421
422 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 423
2f3f09d4 424 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 425
2f3f09d4 426 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
427 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
428 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 429
2f3f09d4 430 Documentation:
72697c1d 431
2f3f09d4 432 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
433 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment

2f3f09d4 435 Changes:
cb1e348b 436
2f3f09d4 437 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
438 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
439 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 440
cfb5d52a 4415.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 442
443 Backward compatibility fixes:
444
445 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
446 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
447
448 Bug fixes:
449
ab4df9f8 450 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
451 been made immutable.
452
0d47e040 453 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
454 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
455 example) Coro is loaded.
456
457 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
458 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
459
460 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
461 using MooseX::Deamonize
462
463 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
464 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
465 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
466 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
467 deployed in these environments.
468
c79bd3b0 469 Enhancements:
470
471 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
472 the remote request.
0d47e040 473
474 Documentation:
475 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
476 file for your application.
477
478 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
479 engines clarified.
480
481 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 482 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 483 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
484
b40baecd 4855.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
486
f899107d 487 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 488 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
489 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
490
491 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
492
e3557c86 493 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
494 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 495
496 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
497 IO::Handle's behaviour.
498
499 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
500 was not breaking out correctly
501
f899107d 502 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
503 to also work in the $c->component method.
504
5ff374b5 505 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
506 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
507 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
508 mode.
2e4a8275 509 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 510
52d65afe 511 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
512
513 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
514
515 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
516 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
517 names.
518
519 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
520
1f440f55 5215.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
522
523 Bug fixes:
524 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
525 not being installed.
526
527 Refactoring:
528 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
529 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
530 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
531
aceee8b5 5325.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
533
2cd94c07 534 Bug fixes:
535 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
536
537 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
538 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
539 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 540
2cd94c07 541 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 542
2cd94c07 543 Known problems:
544 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
545 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
546 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
547 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 548
2cd94c07 549 Documentation:
550 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
551 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 552
07608083 5535.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 554
555 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 556 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
557 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
558 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
559 returning true.
560 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
561
0fd00e7b 562 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
563 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
564 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
565
9bf423ee 566 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
567 in Catalyst::execute
568
569 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
570 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
571 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
572
573 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
574 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
575 (e.g. /account/*)
576
577 New features:
578 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
579 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
580
581 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
582 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
583 developers without changing their application code.
584
45cab07f 5855.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
586
718e6314 587 Bug fixes:
588 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
589 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
590 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
591 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
592 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
593
6ca73485 594 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
595 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
596
7258c943 5975.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
598
599 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
600
601 Removed features:
602
603 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
604 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
605 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
606 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
607 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
608 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
609 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
610
611 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
612 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
613 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
614 class, please tell us *now*.
615
94edbd2c 6165.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
617
8865ee12 618 New features:
619 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
620 title.
2af2a5bf 621 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
622 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
623 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
624 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
625 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
626 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 627
c046f519 628 Bug fixes:
629 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
630 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 631 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
632 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
633 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
634 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
635 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 636 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 637 failing case.
efc2aac0 638 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
639 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
640 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
641 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
642 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
643 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
644 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
645 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 646
fa325a7d 647 Documentation:
648 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
649 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
650
47990d3f 6515.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
652
653 New features:
4d723d12 654 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
655 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
656 confused.
657
47990d3f 658 Warning fixes:
659 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 660 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
661
b2910653 6625.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
663
808db1d6 664 Bug fixes:
665 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
666
7f891e1e 667 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
668 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
669
b2910653 670 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
671
d1672c76 6725.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 673
674 Bug fixes:
675 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
676
03235666 6775.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
678
2afd1ea3 679 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 680 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
681 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
682 load Utils before MyApp.pm
683
684 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
685 application
686
687 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
688
2afd1ea3 689 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
690 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
691 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
692 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
693 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 694
1f94dc3a 695 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
696 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 697
9c64b93a 698 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
699 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
700 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
701
ab83907b 702 Refactoring:
703 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
704 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
705
706 Documentation:
707 - Fix some typos
708
709 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI
710
711
cba60982 7125.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
713
13c565fe 714 New features:
715 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
716 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
717 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
718 the default action creation.
719
f5325631 720 Bug fixes:
721 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
722 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 723 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
724 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 725 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 726 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
727 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 728
729 Documentation:
730 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
731 point.
f8a54681 732 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
733 values.
f73be6d2 734 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 735
7aba3b2d 7365.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
737
738 Bug fixes:
739 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
740 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
741 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
742 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
743 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
744
745 New features:
746 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
747 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
748
749 Documentation:
750 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
751 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
752 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
753 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
754
e3a7414d 7555.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
756
46b58c90 757 Bug fixes:
671123ba 758 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
759 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
760 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 761 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
762 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 763 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
764 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 765 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 766
0319ec68 767 New features:
768 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
769 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
770 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
771 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 772 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
773 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 774 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 775 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 776
8fa9321c 777 Documentation:
778 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
779 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
780
1f52c1d2 781 Cleanups:
782 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
783 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
784 $Catalyst::VERSION.
785
14a1ceef 7865.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
787
025d09f9 788 New features:
789 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
790 the content type and content length if available.
791
13311c16 792 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 793 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 794 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
795 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
796 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
797 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 798 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 799 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
800 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 801 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
802 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 803 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
804 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
805 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 806
13e46699 807 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 808 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
809 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 810 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
811 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 812
d5c5d96f 8135.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
814
52e23ad4 815 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 816 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 817 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 818
1bebcac6 8195.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
820
821 New features:
822 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
823 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
824
f0bb41af 8255.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
826
2689f8a4 827 Bug fixed:
828 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
829 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
830 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
831 which should not be encoded.
832 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
833 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
834
835 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
836 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
837 any set of args/captures.
838
f54950f5 839 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
840 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
841
0ff92c67 842 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
843 removed.
c2f4efce 844
845 Documentation:
0ff92c67 846 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path

854
ca78941c 855 Bug fixed:
856 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
857 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 858 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 859
c9ec25f8 860 Documentation:
861 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 862 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 863
955d6da6 864 Deprecations:
865 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
866 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
867 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

870
1d3a0700 871 Documentation:
872 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
873 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
874 MyApp::View::HTML).
875
e1d59dc4 876 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 877 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 878 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
879 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 880 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
881 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
882 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 883 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
884 argv key in the options hash.
885 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
886 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
887 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 888 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
889 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 890 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
891 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 892
3f07296e 893 Cleanups:
894 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
895 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
896 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
897 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
898 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 902 Bug fixes:
e66329da 903
b42b9094 904 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
905 encoding test controller.
e66329da 906
907 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
908
82701bda 909 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
910 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 911 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
912 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
913 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 914 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 915 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 916 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
917 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
918 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
919 URI.
754e86c6 920 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 921
c96cdcef 922 New features:
e66329da 923
c96cdcef 924 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
925 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
926 less packed with information of no use.
927
30079544 928 Documentation:
e66329da 929
30079544 930 - Fix Pod nits (RT#52370)
931
0ab4f753 9325.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 933 Bug fixes:
934 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
935 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
936 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 937 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 938
939 Documentation:
940 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.
5a7d7e5c 941 - Fix reversal of SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO in previously correct nginx
942 FastCGI documentation introduced in _02.
ea72fece 943
ef546d1e 9445.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 945 Bug fixes:
946 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
947 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
948 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
949 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
950 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 951 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 952 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
953 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
954 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 955 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
956 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
957 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
958 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 959 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 960 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 961
2b3bb280 962 Refactoring / cleanups:
963 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
964 (and then skipped) normally.
965
ee24f3a8 966 Documentation:
967 - Fix Pod nits in Catalyst::Response (RT#51818)

4fac276e 9695.80014_01 2009-11-22 20:01:23
c4efaa54 970
971 Bug fixes:
972 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
973 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
974 on the old behaviour.
975
976 Refactoring / cleanups:
977 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
978 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
979
568e11a2 9805.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
981
9f16fdf2 982 Bug fixes:
983 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
984 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
985 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 986 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
987 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 988 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 989 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 990 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 991 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
992 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
993 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 994 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
995 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
996 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
997 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 998 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
999 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1000 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1001 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1002
d71da6fe 1003 Documentation:
1004 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1005 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1006 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1007 deprecated and causes warnings).
1008 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1009 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1010 in the correct order.
1011 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1012 context.
08a2c908 1013 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1014 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1015 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1016
ab86b480 1017 New features:
1018 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1019 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1020 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1021 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1022 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1023 distributions
10d77181 1024 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1025 exception classes need to implement.
1026 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1027 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1028 use it.
9f16fdf2 1029
647a3de1 1030 Refactoring / cleanups:
1031 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1032 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1033 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1034 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1035 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1036 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1037 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.
647a3de1 1038
1be0c4f8 10395.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1040
85fc6206 1041 Bug fixes:
1042 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1043 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1044 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1045 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1046 method.
1047 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1048 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1049 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1050
1051 Documentation:
85fc6206 1052 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1053 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1054 warnings.
297ff4ce 1055
1056 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1057 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1058 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1059 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1060 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1061 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1066 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1067 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1068 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1069 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1070 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1071 is returned to 'actions'.
1072 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1073 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1074
1075 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1076 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1077 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1078
1079 Tests:
1080 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1081 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1082 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.
1083
a61a96b3 10845.80011 2009-08-23 13:48:15
1085
9d59dde8 1086 Bug fixes:
1087 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1088 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1089 installed in @INC.
1090
f72168b7 10915.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 1092
1093 Bug fixes:
1094 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1095 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1096 than the default chunksize of 64k again.
1097
1b290713 10985.80009 2009-08-21 22:21:08
1099
e7e4c469 1100 Bug fixes:
1101 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1102 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1103 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1104
455b342e 11055.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1106
4ffa3785 1107 Bug fixes:
1108 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1109 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1110 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1111 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1112 tests.
2f6049f2 1113 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1114 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1115 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1116 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1117 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1118 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1119 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1120 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1121 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1122 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1123 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1124 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1125 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1126
371c6f1a 1127 Refactoring / cleanups:
1128 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1129 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1130 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1131 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1132 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1133 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1134 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1135
1136 New features:
d05e45ce 1137 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1138 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1139 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1140 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1141 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1142 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1143 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1144 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1145 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1146 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1147 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1148 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1149 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1150 the request.
371c6f1a 1151
1fe85999 1152 Documentation:
1153 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1154 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1155 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1156 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.
1157 (Forrest Cahoon)

1f851263 1161 Bug fixes:
1162 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1163 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1164 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1165 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1166 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1167 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1168 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1169 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1170 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1171 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1172 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1173
a375a206 1174 New features:
1175 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1176 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1177 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1178 URI.

3c9b6867 1182 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1183 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1184 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1185 applications.
655dfc2a 1186 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1187 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1188 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1189 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1190 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1191 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1192 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1193 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1194 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1195 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1196 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1197 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1198 - Action methods named default and index fixed.

1202 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1203 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1204 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1205 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1206 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1207
371c6f1a 1208 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1209 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1210 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1211 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1212 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1213 error message.
1214 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1215 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1216 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1217 Fixes RT#47366
1218 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1219 again in Catalyst::Test

1239 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1240 later on
dd97c1ac 1241 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1242 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1255 _controller_actions to avoid name clashes with application
1256 controller naming. (random)

545e1e3a 1272 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1273 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1274 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1275 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1276 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1277 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1278 parse_on_demand is on

545e1e3a 1282 - Fix formatting error in the regex fallback warning.
37eaceaf 1283 - Convert the dispatcher's and restarter engine's BUILD method to
1284 attribute builders to not override the BUILD method from

545e1e3a 1289 parents at all.
d0003a28 1290 - Turn off test aggregation by default. Only aggregate if the
e262f38e 1291 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1292 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1293 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1294 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1295 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1296 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1297 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1298 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1299 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 1307 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1308 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1309 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1310 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1311 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 1312
b8123bba 13135.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1314 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1315 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.
1316 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1317 configuration in your application.
1318 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1319 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1320 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one
16b7c476 1321 - Fix issues with restarting the application class due to C3 failures
545e1e3a 1322 on perl 5.10

1cc8db0c 1334 (Emanuele Zeppieri)
93704c74 1335 - Require MX::MethodAttributes 0.06 to avoid issues with saying
545e1e3a 1336 use base 'Catalyst::Controller'; use Moose; losing actions
1337 - Fix all of's typos in ::Upgrading and ::Delta (hobbs)
93704c74 1338

545e1e3a 1353 tries to chain to itself
13c6b4cc 1354 - Tests for this
02298d3a 1355 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 1356 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 1357 - Tests for this (radek)
1358 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1359 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1360 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 1361 - Tests for this (radek)

1399 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 1400 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
1401 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 1402 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1403 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1404 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1405 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1406 syntax.
e7924bb5 1407 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
1408 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.
1409 This is more correct, and avoids metaclass incompatibility in complex
545e1e3a 1410 cases
1411 - Tests for this
1412 - Use of deprecated Catalyst::Base now warns.
1413 - Add uri_with tests

16185.7099_01 2008-06-25 22:36:00
1619 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1620 throw warnings for two reasons:
1621 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
1622 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1623 instead
df3956bf 1624 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1625 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1626 method with a regex as the argument
1627 - remove 0-length query string components so warnings aren't thrown (RT #36428)
1628 - Update HTTP::Body dep so that the uploadtmp config value will work (RT #22540)
