b0ff1be8 35.90094 - 2015-07-24
4 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
5 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
6 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
7 reflect this change.
bea82ea1 8 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
9 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.

b0ff1be8 17
80ba671f 185.90093 - 2015-05-29
19 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
20 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
21
5af5f973 225.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 23 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
24 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 25 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
26 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
27 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
28 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 29
305.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 31 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
32 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
33 even though they were actually created).
34
7dac038c 355.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 36 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
37 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
38 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
39 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
40 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
41
630ad67c 425.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 43 - Added swanky github badges.
44 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 45 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
46 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
47 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
48 retrieved.
49
718a1619 505.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 51 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
52 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 53 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
54 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
55 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 56
1592e3ff 575.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 58 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
59 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
60 test fail.
61 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
62 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
63 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
64 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
65 and imported types.
d9f0a350 66 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
67 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
68 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 69 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
70 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
71 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
72 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
73 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 74 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
75 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
76 component.
ec4d7259 77 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
78 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
79 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
80 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
81 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 82 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
83 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 84 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
85 they are combined.
3e560748 86 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
87 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
88 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
89 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
90 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
91 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 92 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
93 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
94 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 95 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
96 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 97 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 98 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 99 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
100 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
101 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 102
1035.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 104 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 105 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 106 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
107 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 108 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
109 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 110 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
111 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 112 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 113 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 114
9f3e69ee 1155.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 116 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
117 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
118 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
119 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
120 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
121 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
122 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 123 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
124 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 125 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
126 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
127 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 128
8479713c 1295.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 130 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
131 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 132 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 133 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 134 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 135 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 136 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 137 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 138 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
139 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
140 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
141 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
142 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 143
1445.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 145 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 146 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 147 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
148 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
149 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
150 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 151
7131401a 1525.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 153 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
154 to prevent it happening again.
155
7131401a 1565.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 157 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
158 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
159 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
160 test case to prevent regressions.
161
7131401a 1625.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 163 - Minor documentation corrections
164 - Make the '79 development series stable
165
d2000928 1665.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
167 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
168 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 169 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 170 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 171
1725.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 173 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
174 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
175 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 176 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
177 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
178 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 179
b274486c 1805.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 181 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 182 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
183 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
184 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
185 note posted a few months ago.
186 - Added my name to the contributors list
187
6dcc5307 1885.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
189 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 190 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
191 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
192 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
193 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
194 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
195 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
196 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
197 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
198 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
199 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
200 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 201
c017b11b 2025.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 203 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
204 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
205 global variable.
206 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 207 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
208 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
209 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
210 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
211 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 212 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 213 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 214 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 215 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
216 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 217
501605db 2185.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
219 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
220 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
221
bd4b086b 2225.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
223 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
224 changes.
225
2265.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 227 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
228 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 229 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 230 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 231 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 232 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
233 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 234 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
235 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
236 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 237 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 238 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
239 correct if incorrect :)
240 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
241 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 242 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 243 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 244 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
245 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 246 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 247 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
248 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
249 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 250 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 251 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 252 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
253 you want to use.
342d2169 254 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
255 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
256 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
257 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
258 request uses.
460bb45b 259
a24232f9 2605.90079 - 2015-01-02
261 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
262 rt #101243)
263 - updated year in copyright notices
264
b94f8e72 2655.90078 - 2014-12-30
266 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 267 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 268 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
269 trouble. (davewood++);
270 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
271 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
272 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
273
ee2c12fd 2745.90077 - 2014-11-18
275 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
276 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
277 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
278 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
279 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
280
9c86666a 2815.90076 - 2014-11-13
282 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
283 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
284 HTTP Exception middleware.
285
0810283f 2865.90075 - 2014-10-06
287 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
288 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
289 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
290 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
291 you really need to review this exploit.
292
c027f9c4 2935.90074 - 2014-10-01
294 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
295
2be363b7 2965.90073 - 2014-09-23
297 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
298 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
299 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 300 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
301 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 302 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 303
4f96d61c 3045.90072 - 2014-09-15
305 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
306 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
307 so you can go to hunt it out.
308
d5765d73 3095.90071 - 2014-08-10
310 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
311 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
312 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
313 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
314 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 315 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 316
b96bd9f1 3175.90070 - 2014-08-07
318 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
319
1893c194 3205.90069_004
321 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
322 certain tests. No other changes.
323
310c2a39 3245.90069_003
325 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 326 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
327 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
328 a bit.
329 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
330 anything new.
eae29f6e 331 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
332 type response.
333 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
334 improvements.
9c38cb50 335
91789f94 3365.90069_002
3e6ee020 337 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
338 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
339 questions or problems!
340 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
341 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
342 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
343 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 344 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
345 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
346 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 347 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
348 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
349
1b526dcc 3505.90069_001
41bf18c5 351 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
352 - documentation and test fixes
353
8f3c0676 3545.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 355 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
356 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
357 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
358 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 359 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 360 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 361 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 362
13adef05 3635.90064 - 2014-05-05
364 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
365 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
366
3675.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 368 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
369 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
370 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
371 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 372 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
373 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 374 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
375 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
376 configuration.
377 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 378s
3795.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 380 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
381 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
382
c8ad8cbc 3835.90061 - 2014-03-10
384 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
385 introduced by a change in December.
386
de9bcba0 3875.90060 - 2014-02-07
388 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
389
78acc1f7 390
26b42801 3915.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 392 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 393 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 394 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 395 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
396 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 397
b8534a44 3985.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 399 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
400 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 4015.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 402 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
403 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
404 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
405 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
406 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 407 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 408 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 409 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
410 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 411 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
412 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
413 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 414
7af15a33 4155.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 416 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 417 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
418 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 419 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
420 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
421 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 422
97e0c7c5 4235.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 424 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
425 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
426 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
427 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
428 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
429 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
430 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
431 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 432 to work much better.
433 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
434 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
435 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
436 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
437 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
438 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
439 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
440 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 441 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
442 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 443
78acc1f7 4445.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
445 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
446 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
447 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
448 will be broken.
449
5bb2a5b3 4505.90053 - 2013-12-21
451 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
452 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
453 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
454 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
455 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
456 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 457
7d01797b 4585.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 459
02352a28 460 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
461 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 462 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
463 does not exist.
464 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 465 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 466 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
467
468 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
469 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
470 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
471 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
472
3d3ea779 473 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
474 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 475 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 476 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
477 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 478
707988f8 4795.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 480 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 481 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
482
31bd6aec 4835.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 484 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
485 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
486 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 487
55119d7b 488 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
489 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
490 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
491
492 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
493 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
494 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
495 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 496
a61b6983 4975.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
498 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 499 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 500
5015.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 502 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
503 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
504 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
505 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
506 HTML forms.
ba1734df 507 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
508 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
509 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 510 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
511 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
512 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
513 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
514 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 515
fd5fb3a8 5165.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 517 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 518 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 519 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 520 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
521 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
522 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
523 those keys already exist). Keys added:
524 - plack.request.query
525 - plack.request.body
526 - plack.request.merged
527 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 528 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 529 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
530 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
531 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
532 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
533 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
534 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
535 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 536 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
537 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
538 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 539 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
540 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
541 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
542 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
543 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
544 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 545 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
546 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 547
b3070177 5485.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
549 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 550 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 551 updates, including:
552 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
553 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
554 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
555 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
556 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
557 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
558 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
559 a development setup (ether++)
560
e2aa4a21 5615.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
562 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
563 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
564 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
565 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 566 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
567 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
568 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 569
522134af 5705.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
571 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
572 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
573 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
574 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 575
01733d0f 5765.90042 - 2013-06-14
577 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
578 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 579 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
580 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
581 plugin
582 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
583 ask for encoding
584 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
585 caused trouble.
01733d0f 586
c287088e 5875.90041 - 2013-06-14
588 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
589 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
590 this fixes all of them.
591 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
592 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
593 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
594 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
595 number decimals
596 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
597
c8d9e6f4 5985.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 599 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
600 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
601 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 602 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 603 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 604 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 605 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
606 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 607 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
608 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 609 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 610 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
611 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
612 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
613 termination).
8275d3b9 614 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
615 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
616 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
617 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
618 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
619 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 620 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
621 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
622 for more.
d18964f7 623 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 624
f653d2c8 6255.90030 - 2013-04-12
626 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
627 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
628 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 629 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
630 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
631 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
632 resolve manually.
18df061a 633 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
634 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
635 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 636 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 637 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 638 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 639
6405.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 641 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
642 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
643 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
644 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
645 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
646 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 647 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
648 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
649 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
650 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 651 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 652 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 653 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 654 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 655
dbacbce4 6565.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 657 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
658 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
659 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 660 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 661
02f4beca 6625.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
663 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
664 HTTP::Message.
665
d6ae5104 6665.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 667 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 668
669 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
670 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
671
672 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
673
674 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
675 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
676
677 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
678
0df490ef 679 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
680 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
681 of request or response classes.
682
f0580bff 6835.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 684 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
685 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 686 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 687 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 688 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 689 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
690 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
691 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
692 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
693
cfdd890d 6945.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00

f444811b 7005.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
701
258733f1 702 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
703 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
704
aa3897db 7055.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
706
707 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
708 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
709 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
710 of Catalyst.
711
7125.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
713
eff60019 714 New features:
715 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
716
a7d2a530 717 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 718 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
719 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
720
40c06ae4 721 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
722 are supplied.
723
724 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
725 top level config.
a7d2a530 726
b334a4de 727 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
728

732
57746b80 733 Distribution META.yml changes:
734 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
735 mis-parses from the documentation.
736 - x_authority key added.
737
9a649d25 738 Bug fixes:
739 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
740 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
741
1e089329 742 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
743 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
744 is less than helpful.
745
38e43e65 746 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
747 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
748 in bleadperl. RT#76437
749
2037f03f 750 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 751 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
752
d8ccdd9d 753 Documentation:
754 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
755 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
756 directly.
757 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 758 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000

f7ac80ef 763 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 764 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
765 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
766 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
767 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
768 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
769 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
770 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 771 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
772 applications.
df894348 773 - --background option for the server script now only closes
774 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
775 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 776 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
777 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 778 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
779 callback.

0c17b66d 783 Bug fixes:
784 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
785 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
786 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
787 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 791 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 792 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
793 refactoring.
794
0607947f 795 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 796 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 797 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
798 included when not running from a checkout.
799
80267996 800 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
801
8529a7ea 802 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 803 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
804 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 805
d0cacee7 806 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043

af09d56c 8085.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
809
d0cfd993 810 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 811 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 812 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
813 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
814
815 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
816 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
817 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
818
819 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 820 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 821 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
822 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
823
824 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
825
0aba7d92 826 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 827 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
828 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
829 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
830 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
831 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
832
d0cfd993 833 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 834 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 835 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
836 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
837
e6bcfe8e 838 Tests:
3d2c4feb 839 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 840
e1e5366d 841 Documentation:
842 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
843 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
844 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
845
e6bcfe8e 846 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
847 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
848 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
849
00341d81 8505.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
851
0d7bf3a9 852 New features:
853 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
854 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
855 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
856 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
857 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
858
1ce9c7f6 859 Bug fixes:
860 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 861 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
862 over that.
a465926f 863 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
864 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
865 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 866
4c21ba3b 8675.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
868
27b0a436 869 New features:
870 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
871 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
872 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
873 get them passed through to the application.
874
4373973a 875 Documentation:
d685f38e 876 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
877 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
878 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
879 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
880
f4de8c99 881 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 882 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
883 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
884 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 885 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 886 a value.
887 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
888 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
889 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 890
c7250231 891 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
892 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
893
849b1b24 8945.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
895
ab6c6d3d 896 New features:
897
898 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
899 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
900 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
901 whereas before you had to say:
902 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
903 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
904 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
905 the two.
906
cf49ace4 907 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
908 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
909 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
910 scripts in the application.
911 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
912 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
913 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
914 otherwise).
915
ab6c6d3d 916 Documentation:
917
918 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
919 to avoid confusion
4373973a 920 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 921 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
922 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
923 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
924 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
925 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
926 and provide an alternative.

929
65420d46 930 Bug fixes:
931
932 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
933 MyApp->engine_class.
934
a253d527 9355.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 936 Bug fixes:
937
4373973a 938 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 939
e95b2b49 940 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
941 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
942 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
943 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
944 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
945 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
946
fabe0bc6 947 Enhancements:
948
949 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
950 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
951
5cb939e8 952 Backward compatibility fixes:
953
954 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 955 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 956
14eb7697 957 Documentation fixes:
958
959 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
960 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 961
d536010b 962 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 963
824a5eb0 964 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
965
836a51a2 9665.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 967 Backward compatibility fixes:
968
969 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
970 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
971 circumstances.
972 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
973
c47cd2ce 974 Documentation fixes:
975
976 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
977 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
978 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

982 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
983 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.

a8153308 998
2f3f09d4 999 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1000 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1001 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1002
2f3f09d4 1003 Documentation:
72697c1d 1004
2f3f09d4 1005 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes

cb1e348b 1009
2f3f09d4 1010 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1011 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1012 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1013

0d47e040 1015
1016 Backward compatibility fixes:
1017
1018 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1019 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1020
1021 Bug fixes:
1022
ab4df9f8 1023 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1024 been made immutable.
1025
0d47e040 1026 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1027 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1028 example) Coro is loaded.
1029
1030 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1031 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1032
1033 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1034 using MooseX::Deamonize
1035
1036 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1037 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1038 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1039 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1040 deployed in these environments.
1041
c79bd3b0 1042 Enhancements:
1043
1044 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1045 the remote request.
0d47e040 1046
1047 Documentation:
1048 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1049 file for your application.
1050
4373973a 1051 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1052 engines clarified.
1053
1054 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1055 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1056 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
1057
b40baecd 10585.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
1059
f899107d 1060 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1061 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1062 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1063
1064 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1065
e3557c86 1066 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1067 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1068
1069 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1070 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1071
1072 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1073 was not breaking out correctly
1074
f899107d 1075 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1076 to also work in the $c->component method.
1077
5ff374b5 1078 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1079 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1080 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1081 mode.
2e4a8275 1082 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1083
52d65afe 1084 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1085
1086 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1087
1088 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1089 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1090 names.
1091
1092 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.

1f440f55 10945.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1095
1096 Bug fixes:
1097 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1098 not being installed.
1099
1100 Refactoring:
1101 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1102 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1103 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

aceee8b5 11055.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
1106
2cd94c07 1107 Bug fixes:
1108 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1109
1110 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1111 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1112 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1113
2cd94c07 1114 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1115
2cd94c07 1116 Known problems:
1117 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1118 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1119 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1120 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1121
2cd94c07 1122 Documentation:
1123 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1124 of Catalyst has been much improved.

07608083 11265.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1127
1128 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1129 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1130 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1131 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1132 returning true.
1133 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1134
0fd00e7b 1135 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1136 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1137 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1138
9bf423ee 1139 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1140 in Catalyst::execute
1141
1142 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1143 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1144 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1145
1146 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1147 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1148 (e.g. /account/*)
1149
1150 New features:
1151 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1152 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1153
1154 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1155 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1156 developers without changing their application code.
1157
45cab07f 11585.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1159
718e6314 1160 Bug fixes:
1161 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1162 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1163 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1164 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1165 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1166
6ca73485 1167 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1168 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1169
7258c943 11705.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1171
1172 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1173
1174 Removed features:
1175
1176 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1177 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1178 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1179 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1180 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1181 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1182 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1183
1184 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1185 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1186 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1187 class, please tell us *now*.
1188
94edbd2c 11895.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1190
8865ee12 1191 New features:
1192 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1193 title.
2af2a5bf 1194 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1195 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1196 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1197 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1198 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1199 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1200
c046f519 1201 Bug fixes:
1202 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1203 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1204 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1205 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1206 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1207 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1208 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1209 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1210 failing case.
efc2aac0 1211 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1212 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1213 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1214 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1215 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1216 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1217 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1218 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.

fa325a7d 1220 Documentation:
1221 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1222 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1223
47990d3f 12245.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1225
1226 New features:
4d723d12 1227 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1228 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1229 confused.
1230
47990d3f 1231 Warning fixes:
1232 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1233 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.

1236
808db1d6 1237 Bug fixes:
1238 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1239
7f891e1e 1240 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1241 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1242
b2910653 1243 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl

1251
2afd1ea3 1252 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1253 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1254 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1255 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1256
1257 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1258 application
1259
1260 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1261
2afd1ea3 1262 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1263 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1264 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1265 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1266 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1267
1f94dc3a 1268 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1269 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1270
9c64b93a 1271 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1272 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1273 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1274
ab83907b 1275 Refactoring:
1276 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1277 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components

1286
13c565fe 1287 New features:
1288 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1289 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1290 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1291 the default action creation.
1292
f5325631 1293 Bug fixes:
1294 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1295 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1296 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1297 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1298 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1299 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1300 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1301
1302 Documentation:
1303 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1304 point.
f8a54681 1305 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1306 values.
f73be6d2 1307 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1308
7aba3b2d 13095.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1310
1311 Bug fixes:
1312 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1313 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1314 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1315 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1316 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1317
1318 New features:
1319 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1320 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1321
1322 Documentation:
1323 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1324 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1325 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1326 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1327
e3a7414d 13285.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27

46b58c90 1330 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1331 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1332 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1333 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1334 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1335 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1336 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1337 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1338 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1339
0319ec68 1340 New features:
1341 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1342 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1343 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1344 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1345 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1346 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1347 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1348 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1349
8fa9321c 1350 Documentation:
1351 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1352 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1353
1f52c1d2 1354 Cleanups:
1355 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1356 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1357 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1358
14a1ceef 13595.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1360
025d09f9 1361 New features:
1362 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1363 the content type and content length if available.
1364
13311c16 1365 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1366 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1367 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1368 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1369 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1370 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1371 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1372 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1373 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1374 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1375 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1376 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1377 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1378 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1379
13e46699 1380 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1381 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1382 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1383 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1384 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1385
d5c5d96f 13865.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1387
52e23ad4 1388 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1389 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1390 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1391
1bebcac6 13925.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1393

f0bb41af 13985.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1399
2689f8a4 1400 Bug fixed:
1401 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1402 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1403 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1404 which should not be encoded.
1405 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1406 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1407
1408 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1409 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1410 any set of args/captures.
1411
f54950f5 1412 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1413 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1414
0ff92c67 1415 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1416 removed.
c2f4efce 1417
1418 Documentation:
0ff92c67 1419 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
1420 for applications.
1421 - Various minor typo fixes.
c2f4efce 1422
4113e1bb 1423 New features:

1427
ca78941c 1428 Bug fixed:
1429 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1430 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1431 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1432
c9ec25f8 1433 Documentation:
1434 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 1435 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1436
955d6da6 1437 Deprecations:
1438 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1439 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1440 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
1441

1443
1d3a0700 1444 Documentation:
1445 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1446 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1447 MyApp::View::HTML).
1448
e1d59dc4 1449 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1450 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1451 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1452 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1453 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1454 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1455 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1456 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1457 argv key in the options hash.
1458 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1459 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1460 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1461 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1462 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 1463 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
1464 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 1465
3f07296e 1466 Cleanups:
1467 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1468 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1469 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1470 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1471 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

1478 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1479
1480 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1481
82701bda 1482 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1483 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1484 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1485 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1486 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1487 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1488 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1489 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1490 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1491 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1492 URI.
754e86c6 1493 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1494
c96cdcef 1495 New features:
e66329da 1496
c96cdcef 1497 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1498 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1499 less packed with information of no use.

ea72fece 1506 Bug fixes:
1507 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1508 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1509 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1510 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1511
1512 Documentation:
1513 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ea72fece 1516
ef546d1e 15175.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1518 Bug fixes:
1519 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1520 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1521 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1522 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1523 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1524 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1525 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1526 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1527 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1528 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1529 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1530 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1531 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1532 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1533 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1534
2b3bb280 1535 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 1543
1544 Bug fixes:
1545 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1546 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1547 on the old behaviour.
1548
1549 Refactoring / cleanups:
1550 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1551 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1552
568e11a2 15535.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1554
9f16fdf2 1555 Bug fixes:
1556 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1557 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1558 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1559 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1560 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1561 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1562 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1563 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1564 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1565 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1566 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1567 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1568 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1569 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1570 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1571 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1572 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1573 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1574 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1575
d71da6fe 1576 Documentation:
1577 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1578 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1579 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1580 deprecated and causes warnings).
1581 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1582 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1583 in the correct order.
1584 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1585 context.
08a2c908 1586 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1587 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1588 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1589
ab86b480 1590 New features:
1591 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1592 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1593 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1594 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1595 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1596 distributions
10d77181 1597 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1598 exception classes need to implement.
1599 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1600 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1601 use it.
9f16fdf2 1602
647a3de1 1603 Refactoring / cleanups:
1604 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1605 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1606 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1607 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1608 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1609 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1610 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

1613
85fc6206 1614 Bug fixes:
1615 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1616 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1617 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1618 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1619 method.
1620 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1621 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.

1627 warnings.
297ff4ce 1628
1629 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1630 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1631 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1632 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1633 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1634 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

5d94e8f9 1638 Bug fixes:
1639 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1640 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1641 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1642 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1643 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1644 is returned to 'actions'.
1645 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1646 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1647
1648 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1649 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1650 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1651
1652 Tests:
1653 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1654 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1655 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1658
9d59dde8 1659 Bug fixes:
1660 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1661 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1662 installed in @INC.

1666 Bug fixes:
1667 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1668 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1669 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

4ffa3785 1680 Bug fixes:
1681 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1682 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1683 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1684 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1685 tests.
2f6049f2 1686 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1687 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1688 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1689 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1690 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1691 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1692 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1693 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1694 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1695 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1696 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1697 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1698 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1699
371c6f1a 1700 Refactoring / cleanups:
1701 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1702 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.

24964c89 1704 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1705 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1706 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1707 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

1709 New features:
d05e45ce 1710 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1711 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1712 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1713 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1714 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1715 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1716 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1717 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1718 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1719 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1720 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1721 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1722 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1723 the request.
371c6f1a 1724
1fe85999 1725 Documentation:
1726 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1727 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1728 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1729 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1735 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1736 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1737 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1738 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1739 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1740 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1741 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1742 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1743 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1744 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1745 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1746
a375a206 1747 New features:
1748 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1749 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1750 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1751 URI.

3c9b6867 1755 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1756 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1757 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1758 applications.
655dfc2a 1759 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1760 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1761 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1762 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1763 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1764 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1765 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1766 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1767 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1768 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1777 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1778 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1779 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1780
371c6f1a 1781 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1782 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1783 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1784 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1785 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1786 error message.
1787 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1788 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1789 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1790 Fixes RT#47366
1791 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1792 again in Catalyst::Test

1812 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1813 later on
dd97c1ac 1814 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1815 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1844 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1845 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1846 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1847 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1848 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1849 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1850 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1851 parse_on_demand is on

e262f38e 1864 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1865 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1866 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1867 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1868 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1869 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1870 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1871 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1872 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 1880 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1881 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1882 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1883 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1884 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 1885
b8123bba 18865.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1887 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 1888 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 1889 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1890 configuration in your application.
1891 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1892 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1893 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

13c6b4cc 1927 - Tests for this
02298d3a 1928 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 1929 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 1930 - Tests for this (radek)
1931 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1932 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1933 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 1934 - Tests for this (radek)
f2e13bbd 1935 - Added Catalyst::Test::ctx_request to be able to inspect
1936 the context object after a request is made (Jos Boumans)

f0ee3380 1938 - Change the warning when you have conflicting components to
545e1e3a 1939 present a list
19a24dbb 1940 - Move NEXT use and testing deprecated features out to its own
1941 test application so that the main TestApp isn't polluted with
545e1e3a 1942 spurious warnings
1943 - Add a warning for the old ::[MVC]:: style naming scheme
1944 - Test for this
2d9f9c8d 1945 - Kill Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT warnings for the Catalyst:: namespace
545e1e3a 1946 in production versions
56e19078 1947 - Tidy up Catalyst::ClassData to ensure that all components get
545e1e3a 1948 the correct metaclass
4d0270d3 1949 - Make MyApp.pm restartable by unsetting setup_finished in
545e1e3a 1950 the restarter process
65b708a6 1951 - Non-naive implementation of making mutable on restart using
545e1e3a 1952 B::Hooks::OP::Check::StashChange if installed
1953 - Tests for this
65b708a6 1954 - Naive implementation of making all components mutable in the
1955 forked restart watcher process so native Moose apps using
545e1e3a 1956 immutable restart correctly.
1957 - Tests for this
107d0ba0 1958 - Bump Moose dependency to 0.70 so that we avoid nasty surprises
545e1e3a 1959 with is_class_loaded and perl 5.80 when you Moosify MyApp.pm
8f58057d 1960 - Clarify that request arguments aren't unescaped automatically

8c7f89e1 1969 - Make Catalyst::ClassData compatible with the latest Class::MOP::Class
545e1e3a 1970 changes. Also depend on the latest Class::MOP.
1971 - Add $c->uri_for_action method.
1972 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 1973 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
1974 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 1975 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1976 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1977 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
4373973a 1978 subroutine attributes for action declarations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1979 syntax.
e7924bb5 1980 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose

2192 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now

2196 instead
df3956bf 2197 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2198 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2199 method with a regex as the argument
