d91504e3 35.90089_001 - TBA
480d94b5 4 - New Feature: Type Constraints on Args/CapturArgs. ALlows you to declare
5 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
6 CaptureArg.
7 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching).
d91504e3 8
8479713c 95.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 10 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
11 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 12 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 13 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 14 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 15 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 16 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 17 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 18 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
19 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
20 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
21 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
22 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 23
245.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 25 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 26 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 27 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
28 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
29 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
30 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 31
7131401a 325.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 33 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
34 to prevent it happening again.
35
7131401a 365.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 37 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
38 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
39 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
40 test case to prevent regressions.
41
7131401a 425.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 43 - Minor documentation corrections
44 - Make the '79 development series stable
45
d2000928 465.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
47 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
48 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 49 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 50 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 51
525.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 53 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
54 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
55 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 56 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
57 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
58 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 59
b274486c 605.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 61 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 62 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
63 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
64 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
65 note posted a few months ago.
66 - Added my name to the contributors list
67
6dcc5307 685.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
69 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 70 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
71 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
72 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
73 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
74 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
75 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
76 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
77 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
78 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
79 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
80 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 81
c017b11b 825.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 83 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
84 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
85 global variable.
86 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 87 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
88 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
89 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
90 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
91 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 92 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 93 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 94 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 95 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
96 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 97
501605db 985.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
99 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
100 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
101
bd4b086b 1025.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
103 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
104 changes.
105
1065.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 107 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
108 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 109 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 110 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 111 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 112 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
113 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 114 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
115 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
116 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 117 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 118 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
119 correct if incorrect :)
120 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
121 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 122 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 123 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 124 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
125 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 126 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 127 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
128 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
129 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 130 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 131 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 132 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
133 you want to use.
342d2169 134 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
135 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
136 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
137 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
138 request uses.
460bb45b 139
a24232f9 1405.90079 - 2015-01-02
141 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
142 rt #101243)
143 - updated year in copyright notices
144
b94f8e72 1455.90078 - 2014-12-30
146 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 147 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 148 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
149 trouble. (davewood++);
150 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
151 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
152 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
153
ee2c12fd 1545.90077 - 2014-11-18
155 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
156 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
157 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
158 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
159 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
160
9c86666a 1615.90076 - 2014-11-13
162 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
163 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
164 HTTP Exception middleware.
165
0810283f 1665.90075 - 2014-10-06
167 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
168 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
169 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
170 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
171 you really need to review this exploit.
172
c027f9c4 1735.90074 - 2014-10-01
174 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
175
2be363b7 1765.90073 - 2014-09-23
177 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
178 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
179 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 180 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
181 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 182 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 183
4f96d61c 1845.90072 - 2014-09-15
185 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
186 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
187 so you can go to hunt it out.
188
d5765d73 1895.90071 - 2014-08-10
190 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
191 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
192 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
193 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
194 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 195 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 196
b96bd9f1 1975.90070 - 2014-08-07
198 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
199
1893c194 2005.90069_004
201 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
202 certain tests. No other changes.
203
310c2a39 2045.90069_003
205 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 206 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
207 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
208 a bit.
209 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
210 anything new.
eae29f6e 211 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
212 type response.
213 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
214 improvements.
9c38cb50 215
91789f94 2165.90069_002
3e6ee020 217 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
218 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
219 questions or problems!
220 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
221 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
222 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
223 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 224 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
225 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
226 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 227 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
228 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
229
1b526dcc 2305.90069_001
41bf18c5 231 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
232 - documentation and test fixes
233
8f3c0676 2345.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 235 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
236 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
237 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
238 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 239 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 240 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 241 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 242
13adef05 2435.90064 - 2014-05-05
244 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
245 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
246
2475.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 248 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
249 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
250 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
251 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 252 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
253 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 254 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
255 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
256 configuration.
257 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 258s
2595.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 260 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
261 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
262
c8ad8cbc 2635.90061 - 2014-03-10
264 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
265 introduced by a change in December.
266
de9bcba0 2675.90060 - 2014-02-07
268 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
269
78acc1f7 270
26b42801 2715.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 272 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 273 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 274 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 275 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
276 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 277
b8534a44 2785.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 279 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
280 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 2815.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 282 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
283 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
284 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
285 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
286 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 287 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 288 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 289 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
290 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 291 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
292 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
293 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 294
7af15a33 2955.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 296 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 297 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
298 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 299 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
300 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
301 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 302
97e0c7c5 3035.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 304 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
305 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
306 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
307 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
308 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
309 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
310 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
311 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 312 to work much better.
313 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
314 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
315 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
316 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
317 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
318 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
319 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
320 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 321 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
322 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 323
78acc1f7 3245.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
325 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
326 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
327 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
328 will be broken.
329
5bb2a5b3 3305.90053 - 2013-12-21
331 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
332 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
333 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
334 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
335 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
336 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 337
7d01797b 3385.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 339
02352a28 340 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
341 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 342 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
343 does not exist.
344 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 345 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 346 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
347
348 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
349 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
350 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
351 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
352
3d3ea779 353 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
354 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 355 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 356 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
357 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 358
707988f8 3595.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 360 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 361 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
362
31bd6aec 3635.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 364 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
365 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
366 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 367
55119d7b 368 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
369 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
370 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
371
372 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
373 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
374 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
375 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 376
a61b6983 3775.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
378 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 379 - Fixed missing date information in previous release

3815.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 382 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
383 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
384 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
385 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
386 HTML forms.
ba1734df 387 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
388 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
389 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 390 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
391 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
392 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
393 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
394 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 395
fd5fb3a8 3965.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 397 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 398 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 399 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 400 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
401 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
402 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
403 those keys already exist). Keys added:
404 - plack.request.query
405 - plack.request.body
406 - plack.request.merged
407 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 408 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 409 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
410 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
411 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
412 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
413 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
414 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
415 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 416 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
417 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
418 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 419 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
420 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
421 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
422 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
423 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
424 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 425 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
426 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 427
b3070177 4285.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
429 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 430 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 431 updates, including:
432 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
433 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
434 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
435 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
436 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
437 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
438 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
439 a development setup (ether++)
440
e2aa4a21 4415.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
442 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
443 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
444 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
445 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 446 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
447 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
448 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 449
522134af 4505.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
451 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
452 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
453 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
454 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 455
01733d0f 4565.90042 - 2013-06-14
457 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
458 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 459 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
460 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
461 plugin
462 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
463 ask for encoding
464 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
465 caused trouble.
01733d0f 466
c287088e 4675.90041 - 2013-06-14
468 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
469 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
470 this fixes all of them.
471 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
472 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
473 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
474 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
475 number decimals
476 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
477
c8d9e6f4 4785.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 479 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
480 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
481 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 482 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 483 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 484 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 485 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
486 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 487 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
488 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 489 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 490 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
491 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
492 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
493 termination).
8275d3b9 494 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
495 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
496 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
497 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
498 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
499 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 500 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
501 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
502 for more.
d18964f7 503 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 504
f653d2c8 5055.90030 - 2013-04-12
506 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
507 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
508 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 509 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
510 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
511 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
512 resolve manually.
18df061a 513 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
514 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
515 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 516 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 517 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 518 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 519
5205.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 521 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
522 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
523 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
524 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
525 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
526 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 527 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
528 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
529 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
530 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 531 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 532 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 533 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 534 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 535
dbacbce4 5365.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 537 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
538 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
539 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 540 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 541
02f4beca 5425.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
543 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
544 HTTP::Message.
545
d6ae5104 5465.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 547 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 548
549 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
550 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
551
552 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
553
554 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
555 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
556
557 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
558
0df490ef 559 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
560 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
561 of request or response classes.
562
f0580bff 5635.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 564 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
565 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 566 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 567 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 568 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 569 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
570 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
571 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
572 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
573
cfdd890d 5745.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 575 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 576 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
577 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
578 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 579
f444811b 5805.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
581
258733f1 582 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
583 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
584
aa3897db 5855.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
586
587 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
588 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
589 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
590 of Catalyst.
591
5925.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00

a7d2a530 597 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 598 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
599 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
600
40c06ae4 601 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
602 are supplied.
603
604 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
605 top level config.
a7d2a530 606
b334a4de 607 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32

612
57746b80 613 Distribution META.yml changes:
614 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
615 mis-parses from the documentation.
616 - x_authority key added.
617
9a649d25 618 Bug fixes:
619 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
620 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
621
1e089329 622 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
623 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
624 is less than helpful.
625
38e43e65 626 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
627 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
628 in bleadperl. RT#76437
629
2037f03f 630 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 631 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
632
d8ccdd9d 633 Documentation:
634 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
635 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
636 directly.
637 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 638 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 639 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710

2114ee9f 6415.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
642
f7ac80ef 643 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 644 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
645 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
646 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
647 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
648 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
649 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
650 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 651 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
652 applications.
df894348 653 - --background option for the server script now only closes
654 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
655 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 656 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
657 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 658 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
659 callback.
f7ac80ef 660

f7ac80ef 662
0c17b66d 663 Bug fixes:
664 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
665 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
666 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
667 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 671 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 672 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
673 refactoring.
674
0607947f 675 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 676 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 677 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
678 included when not running from a checkout.
679
80267996 680 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
681
8529a7ea 682 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 683 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
684 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 685

af09d56c 6885.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
689
d0cfd993 690 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 691 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 692 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
693 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
694
695 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
696 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
697 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
698
699 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 700 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 701 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
702 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
703
704 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
705
0aba7d92 706 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 707 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
708 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
709 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
710 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
711 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
712
d0cfd993 713 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 714 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 715 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
716 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
717
e6bcfe8e 718 Tests:
3d2c4feb 719 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 720
e1e5366d 721 Documentation:
722 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
723 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
724 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
725
e6bcfe8e 726 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
727 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
728 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
729
00341d81 7305.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
731
0d7bf3a9 732 New features:
733 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
734 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
735 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
736 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
737 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
738
1ce9c7f6 739 Bug fixes:
740 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 741 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
742 over that.
a465926f 743 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
744 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
745 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 746
4c21ba3b 7475.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
748
27b0a436 749 New features:
750 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
751 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
752 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
753 get them passed through to the application.
754
4373973a 755 Documentation:
d685f38e 756 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
757 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
758 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
759 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
760
f4de8c99 761 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 762 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
763 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
764 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 765 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 766 a value.
767 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
768 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
769 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 770
c7250231 771 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
772 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
773
849b1b24 7745.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
775
ab6c6d3d 776 New features:
777
778 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
779 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
780 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
781 whereas before you had to say:
782 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
783 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
784 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
785 the two.
786
cf49ace4 787 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
788 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
789 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
790 scripts in the application.
791 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
792 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
793 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
794 otherwise).
795
ab6c6d3d 796 Documentation:
797
798 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
799 to avoid confusion
4373973a 800 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 801 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
802 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
803 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
804 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
805 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
806 and provide an alternative.

4ec26b6c 8085.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
809
65420d46 810 Bug fixes:
811
812 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
813 MyApp->engine_class.
814
a253d527 8155.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 816 Bug fixes:
817
4373973a 818 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 819
e95b2b49 820 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
821 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
822 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
823 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
824 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
825 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
826
fabe0bc6 827 Enhancements:
828
829 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
830 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
831
5cb939e8 832 Backward compatibility fixes:
833
834 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 835 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 836
14eb7697 837 Documentation fixes:
838
839 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
840 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 841
d536010b 842 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 843
824a5eb0 844 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
845
836a51a2 8465.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 847 Backward compatibility fixes:
848
849 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
850 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
851 circumstances.
852 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
853
c47cd2ce 854 Documentation fixes:
855
856 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
857 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
858 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
859
3143ee5f 8605.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
861
862 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
863 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
864
865 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
866
867 Cut another release.

c20710a1 873 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 874
875 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 876
2f3f09d4 877 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 878
2f3f09d4 879 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
880 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
881 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 882
2f3f09d4 883 Documentation:
72697c1d 884
2f3f09d4 885 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
886 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 887
2f3f09d4 888 Changes:
cb1e348b 889
2f3f09d4 890 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
891 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 892 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 893
cfb5d52a 8945.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 895
896 Backward compatibility fixes:
897
898 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
899 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
900
901 Bug fixes:
902
ab4df9f8 903 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
904 been made immutable.
905
0d47e040 906 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
907 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
908 example) Coro is loaded.
909
910 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
911 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
912
913 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
914 using MooseX::Deamonize
915
916 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
917 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
918 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
919 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
920 deployed in these environments.
921
c79bd3b0 922 Enhancements:
923
924 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
925 the remote request.
0d47e040 926
927 Documentation:
928 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
929 file for your application.
930
4373973a 931 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 932 engines clarified.
933
934 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 935 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 936 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
937
b40baecd 9385.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
939
f899107d 940 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 941 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
942 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
943
944 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
945
e3557c86 946 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
947 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 948
949 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
950 IO::Handle's behaviour.
951
952 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
953 was not breaking out correctly
954
f899107d 955 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
956 to also work in the $c->component method.
957
5ff374b5 958 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
959 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
960 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
961 mode.
2e4a8275 962 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 963
52d65afe 964 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
965
966 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
967
968 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
969 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
970 names.
971
972 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
973
1f440f55 9745.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
975
976 Bug fixes:
977 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
978 not being installed.
979
980 Refactoring:
981 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
982 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
983 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
984
aceee8b5 9855.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
986
2cd94c07 987 Bug fixes:
988 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
989
990 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
991 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
992 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 993
2cd94c07 994 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 995
2cd94c07 996 Known problems:
997 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
998 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
999 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1000 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1001
2cd94c07 1002 Documentation:
1003 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1004 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 1005
07608083 10065.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1007
1008 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1009 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1010 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1011 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1012 returning true.
1013 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1014
0fd00e7b 1015 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1016 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1017 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1018
9bf423ee 1019 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1020 in Catalyst::execute
1021
1022 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1023 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1024 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1025
1026 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1027 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1028 (e.g. /account/*)
1029
1030 New features:
1031 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1032 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1033
1034 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1035 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1036 developers without changing their application code.
1037
45cab07f 10385.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1039
718e6314 1040 Bug fixes:
1041 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1042 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1043 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1044 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1045 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1046
6ca73485 1047 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1048 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1049
7258c943 10505.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1051
1052 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1053
1054 Removed features:
1055
1056 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1057 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1058 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1059 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1060 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1061 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1062 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1063
1064 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1065 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1066 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1067 class, please tell us *now*.
1068
94edbd2c 10695.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1070
8865ee12 1071 New features:
1072 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1073 title.
2af2a5bf 1074 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1075 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1076 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1077 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1078 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1079 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1080
c046f519 1081 Bug fixes:
1082 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1083 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1084 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1085 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1086 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1087 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1088 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1089 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1090 failing case.
efc2aac0 1091 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1092 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1093 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1094 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1095 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1096 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1097 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1098 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1099
fa325a7d 1100 Documentation:
1101 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1102 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1103
47990d3f 11045.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1105
1106 New features:
4d723d12 1107 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1108 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1109 confused.
1110
47990d3f 1111 Warning fixes:
1112 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1113 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1114
b2910653 11155.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1116
808db1d6 1117 Bug fixes:
1118 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1119
7f891e1e 1120 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1121 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1122
b2910653 1123 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1124
d1672c76 11255.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 1126
1127 Bug fixes:
1128 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
1129
03235666 11305.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1131
2afd1ea3 1132 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1133 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1134 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1135 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1136
1137 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1138 application
1139
1140 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1141
2afd1ea3 1142 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1143 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1144 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1145 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1146 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1147
1f94dc3a 1148 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1149 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1150
9c64b93a 1151 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1152 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1153 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1154
ab83907b 1155 Refactoring:
1156 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1157 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1158
1159 Documentation:
1160 - Fix some typos
1161
1162 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI
1163
1164
cba60982 11655.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1166
13c565fe 1167 New features:
1168 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1169 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1170 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1171 the default action creation.
1172
f5325631 1173 Bug fixes:
1174 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1175 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1176 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1177 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1178 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1179 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1180 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1181
1182 Documentation:
1183 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1184 point.
f8a54681 1185 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1186 values.
f73be6d2 1187 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1188
7aba3b2d 11895.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1190
1191 Bug fixes:
1192 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1193 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1194 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1195 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1196 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1197
1198 New features:
1199 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1200 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1201
1202 Documentation:
1203 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1204 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1205 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1206 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1207
e3a7414d 12085.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1209
46b58c90 1210 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1211 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1212 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1213 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1214 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1215 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1216 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1217 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1218 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1219
0319ec68 1220 New features:
1221 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1222 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1223 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1224 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1225 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1226 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1227 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1228 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1229
8fa9321c 1230 Documentation:
1231 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1232 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1233
1f52c1d2 1234 Cleanups:
1235 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1236 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1237 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1238
14a1ceef 12395.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1240
025d09f9 1241 New features:
1242 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1243 the content type and content length if available.
1244
13311c16 1245 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1246 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1247 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1248 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1249 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1250 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1251 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1252 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1253 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1254 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1255 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1256 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1257 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1258 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1259
13e46699 1260 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1261 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1262 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1263 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1264 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1265
d5c5d96f 12665.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1267
52e23ad4 1268 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1269 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1270 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1271
1bebcac6 12725.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1273
1274 New features:
1275 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
1276 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)

f0bb41af 12785.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1279
2689f8a4 1280 Bug fixed:
1281 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1282 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1283 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1284 which should not be encoded.
1285 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1286 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1287
1288 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1289 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1290 any set of args/captures.
1291
f54950f5 1292 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1293 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1294
0ff92c67 1295 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1296 removed.
c2f4efce 1297
1298 Documentation:
0ff92c67 1299 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
1300 for applications.
1301 - Various minor typo fixes.

1307
ca78941c 1308 Bug fixed:
1309 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1310 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1311 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1312
c9ec25f8 1313 Documentation:
1314 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 1315 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1316
955d6da6 1317 Deprecations:
1318 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1319 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1320 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
1321

1323
1d3a0700 1324 Documentation:
1325 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1326 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1327 MyApp::View::HTML).
1328
e1d59dc4 1329 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1330 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1331 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1332 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1333 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1334 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1335 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1336 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1337 argv key in the options hash.
1338 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1339 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1340 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1341 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1342 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 1343 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
1344 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 1345
3f07296e 1346 Cleanups:
1347 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1348 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1349 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1350 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1351 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

e66329da 1356
b42b9094 1357 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
1358 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1359
1360 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1361
82701bda 1362 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1363 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1364 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1365 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1366 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1367 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1368 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1369 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1370 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1371 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1372 URI.
754e86c6 1373 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1374
c96cdcef 1375 New features:
e66329da 1376
c96cdcef 1377 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1378 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1379 less packed with information of no use.
1380
30079544 1381 Documentation:

0ab4f753 13855.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 1386 Bug fixes:
1387 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1388 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1389 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1390 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1391
1392 Documentation:
1393 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.
5a7d7e5c 1394 - Fix reversal of SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO in previously correct nginx
1395 FastCGI documentation introduced in _02.
ea72fece 1396
ef546d1e 13975.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1398 Bug fixes:
1399 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1400 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1401 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1402 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1403 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1404 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1405 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1406 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1407 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1408 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1409 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1410 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1411 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1412 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1413 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1414
2b3bb280 1415 Refactoring / cleanups:
1416 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
1417 (and then skipped) normally.

c4efaa54 1423
1424 Bug fixes:
1425 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1426 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1427 on the old behaviour.
1428
1429 Refactoring / cleanups:
1430 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1431 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1432
568e11a2 14335.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1434
9f16fdf2 1435 Bug fixes:
1436 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1437 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1438 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1439 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1440 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1441 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1442 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1443 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1444 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1445 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1446 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1447 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1448 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1449 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1450 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1451 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1452 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1453 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1454 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1455
d71da6fe 1456 Documentation:
1457 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1458 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1459 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1460 deprecated and causes warnings).
1461 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1462 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1463 in the correct order.
1464 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1465 context.
08a2c908 1466 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1467 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1468 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1469
ab86b480 1470 New features:
1471 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1472 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1473 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1474 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1475 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1476 distributions
10d77181 1477 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1478 exception classes need to implement.
1479 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1480 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1481 use it.
9f16fdf2 1482
647a3de1 1483 Refactoring / cleanups:
1484 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1485 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1486 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1487 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1488 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1489 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1490 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

1be0c4f8 14925.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1493
85fc6206 1494 Bug fixes:
1495 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1496 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1497 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1498 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1499 method.
1500 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1501 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1502 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1503
1504 Documentation:
85fc6206 1505 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1506 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1507 warnings.
297ff4ce 1508
1509 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1510 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1511 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1512 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1513 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1514 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1519 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1520 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1521 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1522 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1523 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1524 is returned to 'actions'.
1525 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1526 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1527
1528 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1529 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1530 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1531
1532 Tests:
1533 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1534 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1535 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1541 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1542 installed in @INC.

1546 Bug fixes:
1547 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1548 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1549 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

1555 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1556 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

1559
4ffa3785 1560 Bug fixes:
1561 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1562 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1563 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1564 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1565 tests.
2f6049f2 1566 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1567 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1568 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1569 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1570 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1571 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1572 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1573 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1574 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1575 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1576 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1577 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1578 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1579
371c6f1a 1580 Refactoring / cleanups:
1581 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1582 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1583 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1584 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1585 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1586 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1587 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1588
1589 New features:
d05e45ce 1590 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1591 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1592 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1593 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1594 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1595 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1596 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1597 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1598 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1599 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1600 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1601 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1602 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1603 the request.
371c6f1a 1604
1fe85999 1605 Documentation:
1606 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1607 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1608 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1609 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1615 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1616 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1617 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1618 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1619 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1620 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1621 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1622 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1623 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1624 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1625 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1626
a375a206 1627 New features:
1628 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1629 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1630 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1

545e1e3a 1640 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1641 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1642 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1643 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1644 except works correctly with closures.

371c6f1a 1661 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1662 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1663 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1664 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1665 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1666 error message.
1667 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1668 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and

545e1e3a 1745 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1746 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1747 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1748 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1749 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /

b8123bba 17665.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1767 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 1768 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 1769 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1770 configuration in your application.

1811 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1812 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

545e1e3a 1855 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1856 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1857 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace

2072 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2073 throw warnings for two reasons:
2074 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
2075 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2076 instead
df3956bf 2077 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2078 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2079 method with a regex as the argument
