f65b6e93 35.90115 - 2017-05-01
4 - fixes for silent bad behavior in Catalyst::ScriptRole and 'ensure_class_loaded'
5 (hobbs++)
6 - do not require MXRWO if Moose is new enough to have cored it (ether++)
7 - documentation improvements (ether++)
3c1716e3 8 - Encoding documentation improvements (colinnewell++)
e2ed6ad9 9 - Improve documentation and test cases for 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' configuration
10 option (melmothx++)
11 - Better debug output when using Hash::MultiValue (tremor69++)
f7f3681c 12 - Fixes for detecting debug terminal size (simonamor++)
f65b6e93 13
7213dd01 145.90114 - 2016-12-19
15 - Fixed regression introduced in the last version (5.90113) which caused
16 application to hang when the action private name contained a string
17 like 'foo/bar..html'. If you are running 5.90113 you should consider this
18 a required update.
59e4fb5d 19 - Tweaked travis CI script.
7213dd01 20
ffe72ea6 215.90113 - 2016-12-15
22 - Fixed issue with $controller->action_for when targeting an action in
23 a namespace nested inside the current controller and the current controller
24 is a 'root' controller.
25 - Enhanced $controller->action_for so that you can reference the 'parent'
26 controller via relative path (eg ->action_for('../foo')).
27 - Backcompat fix for people that made the mistake of doing $c->{stash}
d7325e05 28 - Sort controllers in setup_actions so cross-controller precedence is
29 consistent.
30
a050c28a 315.90112 - 2016-07-25
0fb9642d 32 - Spelling fixes from Debian group.
a050c28a 33 - Fixed regression introduced in last release that caused the code to crap out
34 if you set the encoding to 'undef'.
35
bde75a9e 365.90111 - 2016-07-20
37 - Improved documentation around some of the unicode changes; tests (melmothx++)
38
de2e9a6f 395.90110 - 2016-07-20
103f2d96 40 - Better catching of HTTP style exceptions so that you can reliable use one to
41 override many core method.
42 - Documention on better ways to catch and handle Unicode errors
43 - We now check the unicode in your URL request queries and raise an error if the
44 check fails. This was done to be consistent with what we do in other parts of
45 the code (such as in args, or POSTed parameters). If this breaks your code in
46 ways you don't want to fix, you may disable this using the global configuration
47 setting, "do_not_check_query_encoding".
48 - Removed configuration setting, "decode_query_using_global_encoding" since it no
49 longer does anything useful. Query decoding follows from whatever you set the
50 global encoding to, unless you specify an alternative or to not decode.
51
5df9a4c5 525.90106 - 2016-07-05
53 - Fixed regression in debug screen rendering of the private names in chained
54 actions caused by commit 5dd46e24eedec447bdfbc4061ed683b5a17a7b0c.
55 - Fixed incorrect date entered for the release of 5.90105
56 - Fixed some incorrect code in a test case that might be causing test fails
57 in some configurations.
58
595.90105 - 2016-06-08
2d4da72c 60 - Tweak some test cases to try and prevent them from failing in limited cases.
61 - Changed how we compose traits onto the response, request, and stats class so
62 that we compose just once at setup time (performance optimization). Also added
63 a debug screen at startup to display composed classes to help with debugging.
cc7af078 64 - Fixed a regressed caused by the changes we made to the way ->state works so that
fd1fe4c7 65 now when you forward to an action and that action throws an exception, $c->state
cc7af078 66 is set to 0, instead of the value of the exeption (this is to be as indicated by
fd1fe4c7 67 the documentation). (cventers++ for reported bug and test case).
18adb1ed 68 - Changed the code that detects if you try to set HTTP headers after headers are
69 finalized to not warn if you are just requested the response header state. Tweaked
70 this error message a bit to help people understand it.
2d4da72c 71
163b3de6 725.90104 - 2016-04-04
73 - Merged pull request #131, fix for noisy debug logs when used type constraints
74 in your actions. Additional changes to the developer debug screen output to
75 improve reporting details.
76 - Merged pull request #133, fix for case when a file upload filename contains
77 wide characters which caused the filename to not appear in the uploads hash.
78
ed60d917 795.90103 - 2015-11-12
4c71cf1b 80 - More documentation fixes (thanks to the debian maintainers and melmothx++)
81 - Fixed the way we parse subroutine attribute values to fix a regression
82 introduced in 5.90102. This is a recommended upgrade (tsibley++, mst++)
83 - Fixed regression around auto actions that escape by throwing an exception
84 which was introduced in the last release.
ed906c97 85 - Bumped namespace::autoclean dep to latest since tests require -except
4c71cf1b 86
b8ef930c 875.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 88 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
89 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
90 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 91 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 92 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
93 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 94 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e459bd03 95 - $c->state is now preserved over actions in a chain, and across begin,
96 auto, ->forward and ->detach.
e43b00f9 97
d2995a76 985.90101 - 2015-09-04
99 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
100 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
101
5e7e6b27 1025.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 103 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
104 with type constraints.
105 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 106 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 107 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
108 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 109 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 110 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 111
a1dba4cf 1125.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 113 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
114 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
115 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 116 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
117 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
118 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
119 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 120
ed5a562b 1215.90096 - 2015-07-27
122 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
123 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
124 to define behavior better.
125
3f955f48 1265.90095 - 2015-07-27
127 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
128 on CPAN testers.
129 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
130 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
131 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
132 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 133
b0ff1be8 1345.90094 - 2015-07-24
135 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
136 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
137 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 138 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
139 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 140 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
141 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 142 - Merged Pull Requests:
ddbc0a77 143 - https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/95

f3311a32 148 - https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/107
b0ff1be8 149
80ba671f 1505.90093 - 2015-05-29
151 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
152 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
153
5af5f973 1545.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 155 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
156 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 157 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
158 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
159 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
160 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 161
1625.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 163 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
164 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
165 even though they were actually created).
166
7dac038c 1675.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 168 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
169 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
170 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
171 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
172 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
173
630ad67c 1745.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 175 - Added swanky github badges.
176 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 177 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
178 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
179 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
180 retrieved.
181
718a1619 1825.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 183 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
184 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 185 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
186 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
187 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 188
1592e3ff 1895.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 190 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
191 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
192 test fail.
193 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
194 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
195 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
196 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
197 and imported types.
d9f0a350 198 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
199 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
200 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 201 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
202 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
203 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
204 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
205 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 206 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
207 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
208 component.
ec4d7259 209 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
210 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
211 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
212 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
213 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 214 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
215 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 216 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
217 they are combined.
3e560748 218 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
219 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
220 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
221 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
222 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
223 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 224 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
225 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
226 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 227 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
228 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 229 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 230 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 231 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
232 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
233 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 234
2355.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 236 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 237 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 238 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
239 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 240 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
241 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 242 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
243 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 244 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 245 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 246
9f3e69ee 2475.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 248 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
249 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
250 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
251 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
252 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
253 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
254 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 255 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
256 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 257 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
258 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
259 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 260
8479713c 2615.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 262 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
263 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 264 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 265 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 266 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 267 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 268 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 269 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 270 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
271 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
272 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
273 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
274 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 275
2765.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 277 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 278 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 279 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
280 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
281 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
282 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 283
7131401a 2845.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 285 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
286 to prevent it happening again.
287
7131401a 2885.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 289 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
290 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
291 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
292 test case to prevent regressions.
293
7131401a 2945.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 295 - Minor documentation corrections
296 - Make the '79 development series stable
297
d2000928 2985.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
299 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
300 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 301 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 302 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 303
3045.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 305 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
306 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
307 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 308 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
309 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
310 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 311
b274486c 3125.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 313 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 314 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
315 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
316 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
317 note posted a few months ago.
318 - Added my name to the contributors list
319
6dcc5307 3205.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
321 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 322 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
323 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
324 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
325 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
326 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
327 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
328 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
329 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
330 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
331 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
332 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 333
c017b11b 3345.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 335 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
336 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
337 global variable.
338 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 339 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
340 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
341 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
342 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
343 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 344 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 345 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 346 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 347 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
348 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 349
501605db 3505.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
351 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
352 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
353
bd4b086b 3545.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
355 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
356 changes.
357
3585.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 359 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
360 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 361 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 362 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 363 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 364 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
365 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 366 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
367 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
368 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 369 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 370 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
371 correct if incorrect :)
372 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
373 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 374 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 375 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 376 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
377 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 378 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 379 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
380 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
381 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 382 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 383 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 384 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
385 you want to use.
342d2169 386 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
387 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
388 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
389 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
390 request uses.
460bb45b 391
a24232f9 3925.90079 - 2015-01-02
393 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
394 rt #101243)
395 - updated year in copyright notices
396
b94f8e72 3975.90078 - 2014-12-30
398 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 399 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 400 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
401 trouble. (davewood++);
402 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
403 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
404 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
405
ee2c12fd 4065.90077 - 2014-11-18
407 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
408 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
409 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
410 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
411 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
412
9c86666a 4135.90076 - 2014-11-13
414 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
415 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
416 HTTP Exception middleware.
417
0810283f 4185.90075 - 2014-10-06
419 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
420 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
421 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
422 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
423 you really need to review this exploit.
424
c027f9c4 4255.90074 - 2014-10-01
426 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
427
2be363b7 4285.90073 - 2014-09-23
429 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
430 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
431 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 432 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
433 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 434 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 435
4f96d61c 4365.90072 - 2014-09-15
437 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
438 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
439 so you can go to hunt it out.
440
d5765d73 4415.90071 - 2014-08-10
442 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
443 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
444 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
445 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
446 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 447 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 448
b96bd9f1 4495.90070 - 2014-08-07
450 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
451
1893c194 4525.90069_004
453 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
454 certain tests. No other changes.
455
310c2a39 4565.90069_003
457 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 458 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
459 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
460 a bit.
461 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
462 anything new.
eae29f6e 463 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
464 type response.
465 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
466 improvements.
9c38cb50 467
91789f94 4685.90069_002
3e6ee020 469 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
470 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
471 questions or problems!
472 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
473 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
474 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
475 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 476 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
477 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
478 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 479 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
480 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
481
1b526dcc 4825.90069_001
41bf18c5 483 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
484 - documentation and test fixes
485
8f3c0676 4865.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 487 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
488 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
489 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
490 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 491 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 492 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 493 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 494
13adef05 4955.90064 - 2014-05-05
496 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
497 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
498
4995.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 500 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
501 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
502 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
503 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 504 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
505 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 506 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
507 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
508 configuration.
509 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 510s
5115.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 512 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
513 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
514
c8ad8cbc 5155.90061 - 2014-03-10
516 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
517 introduced by a change in December.
518
de9bcba0 5195.90060 - 2014-02-07
520 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
521
78acc1f7 522
26b42801 5235.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 524 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 525 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 526 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 527 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
528 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 529
b8534a44 5305.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 531 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
532 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 5335.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 534 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
535 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
536 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
537 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
538 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 539 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 540 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 541 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
542 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 543 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
544 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
545 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 546
7af15a33 5475.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 548 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 549 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
550 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 551 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
552 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
553 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 554
97e0c7c5 5555.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 556 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
557 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
558 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
559 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
560 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
561 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
562 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
563 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 564 to work much better.
565 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
566 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
567 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
568 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
569 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
570 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
571 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
572 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 573 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
574 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 575
78acc1f7 5765.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
577 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
578 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
579 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
580 will be broken.
581
5bb2a5b3 5825.90053 - 2013-12-21
583 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
584 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
585 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
586 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
587 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
588 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 589
7d01797b 5905.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 591
02352a28 592 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
593 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 594 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
595 does not exist.
596 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 597 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 598 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
599
600 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
601 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
602 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
603 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
604
3d3ea779 605 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
606 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 607 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 608 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
609 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 610
707988f8 6115.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 612 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 613 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
614
31bd6aec 6155.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 616 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
617 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
618 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 619
55119d7b 620 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
621 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
622 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
623
624 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
625 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
626 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
627 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 628
a61b6983 6295.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
630 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 631 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 632
6335.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 634 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
635 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
636 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
637 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
638 HTML forms.
ba1734df 639 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
640 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
641 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 642 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
643 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
644 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
645 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
646 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 647
fd5fb3a8 6485.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 649 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 650 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 651 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 652 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
653 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
654 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
655 those keys already exist). Keys added:
656 - plack.request.query
657 - plack.request.body
658 - plack.request.merged
659 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 660 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 661 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
662 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
663 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
664 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
665 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
666 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
667 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 668 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
669 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
670 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 671 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
672 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
673 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
674 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
675 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
676 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 677 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
678 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 679
b3070177 6805.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
681 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 682 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 683 updates, including:
684 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
685 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
686 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
687 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
688 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
689 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
690 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
691 a development setup (ether++)
692
e2aa4a21 6935.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
694 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
695 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
696 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
697 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 698 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
699 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
700 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 701
522134af 7025.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
703 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
704 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
705 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
706 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 707
01733d0f 7085.90042 - 2013-06-14
709 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
710 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 711 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
712 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
713 plugin
714 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
715 ask for encoding
716 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
717 caused trouble.
01733d0f 718
c287088e 7195.90041 - 2013-06-14
720 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
721 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
722 this fixes all of them.
723 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
724 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
725 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
726 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
727 number decimals
728 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
729
c8d9e6f4 7305.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 731 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
732 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
733 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 734 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 735 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 736 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 737 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
738 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 739 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
740 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 741 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 742 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
743 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
744 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
745 termination).
8275d3b9 746 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
747 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
748 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
749 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
750 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
751 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 752 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
753 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
754 for more.
d18964f7 755 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 756
f653d2c8 7575.90030 - 2013-04-12
758 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
759 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
760 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 761 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
762 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
763 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
764 resolve manually.
18df061a 765 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
766 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
767 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 768 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 769 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 770 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 771
7725.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 773 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
774 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
775 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
776 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
777 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
778 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 779 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
780 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
781 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
782 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 783 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 784 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 785 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 786 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 787
dbacbce4 7885.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 789 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
790 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
791 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 792 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 793
02f4beca 7945.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
795 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
796 HTTP::Message.
797
d6ae5104 7985.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 799 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 800
801 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
802 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
803
804 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
805
806 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
807 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
808
809 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
810
0df490ef 811 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
812 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
813 of request or response classes.
814
f0580bff 8155.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 816 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
817 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 818 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 819 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 820 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 821 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
822 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
823 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
824 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
825
cfdd890d 8265.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00

f444811b 8325.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
833
258733f1 834 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
835 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
836
aa3897db 8375.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
838
839 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
840 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
841 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
842 of Catalyst.
843
8445.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
845
eff60019 846 New features:
847 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
848
a7d2a530 849 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 850 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
851 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
852
40c06ae4 853 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
854 are supplied.
855
856 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
857 top level config.
a7d2a530 858
b334a4de 859 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
860
861 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
862
3239be86 8635.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
864
57746b80 865 Distribution META.yml changes:
866 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
867 mis-parses from the documentation.
868 - x_authority key added.
869
9a649d25 870 Bug fixes:
871 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
872 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
873
1e089329 874 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
875 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
876 is less than helpful.
877
38e43e65 878 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
879 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
880 in bleadperl. RT#76437
881
2037f03f 882 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 883 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
884
d8ccdd9d 885 Documentation:
886 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
887 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
888 directly.
889 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 890 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 891 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 892
2114ee9f 8935.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
894
f7ac80ef 895 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 896 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
897 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
898 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
899 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
900 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
901 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
902 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 903 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
904 applications.
df894348 905 - --background option for the server script now only closes
906 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
907 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 908 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
909 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 910 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
911 callback.
f7ac80ef 912
fed36d61 9135.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 914
0c17b66d 915 Bug fixes:
916 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
917 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
918 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
919 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
920
8d196862 9215.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
922
0607947f 923 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 924 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
925 refactoring.
926
0607947f 927 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 928 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 929 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
930 included when not running from a checkout.
931
80267996 932 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
933
8529a7ea 934 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 935 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
936 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 937
d0cacee7 938 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
939
af09d56c 9405.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
941
d0cfd993 942 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 943 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 944 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
945 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
946
947 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
948 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
949 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
950
951 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 952 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 953 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
954 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
955
956 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
957
0aba7d92 958 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 959 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
960 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
961 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
962 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
963 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
964
d0cfd993 965 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 966 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 967 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
968 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
969
e6bcfe8e 970 Tests:
3d2c4feb 971 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 972
e1e5366d 973 Documentation:
974 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
975 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
976 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
977
e6bcfe8e 978 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
979 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
980 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
981
00341d81 9825.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
983
0d7bf3a9 984 New features:
985 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
986 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
987 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
988 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
989 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
990
1ce9c7f6 991 Bug fixes:
992 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 993 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
994 over that.
a465926f 995 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
996 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
997 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 998
4c21ba3b 9995.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
1000
27b0a436 1001 New features:
1002 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
1003 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
1004 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
1005 get them passed through to the application.
1006
4373973a 1007 Documentation:
d685f38e 1008 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
1009 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
1010 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
1011 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
1012
f4de8c99 1013 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 1014 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
1015 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
1016 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 1017 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 1018 a value.
1019 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
1020 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
1021 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 1022
c7250231 1023 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
1024 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
1025
849b1b24 10265.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
1027
ab6c6d3d 1028 New features:
1029
1030 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
1031 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
1032 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
1033 whereas before you had to say:
1034 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
1035 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
1036 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
1037 the two.
1038
cf49ace4 1039 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
1040 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
1041 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
1042 scripts in the application.
1043 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
1044 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
1045 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
1046 otherwise).
1047
ab6c6d3d 1048 Documentation:
1049
1050 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
1051 to avoid confusion
4373973a 1052 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 1053 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
1054 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
1055 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
1056 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
1057 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
1058 and provide an alternative.
1059
4ec26b6c 10605.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
1061
65420d46 1062 Bug fixes:
1063
1064 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
1065 MyApp->engine_class.
1066
a253d527 10675.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 1068 Bug fixes:
1069
4373973a 1070 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 1071
e95b2b49 1072 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
1073 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
1074 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
1075 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
1076 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
1077 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
1078
fabe0bc6 1079 Enhancements:
1080
1081 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
1082 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
1083
5cb939e8 1084 Backward compatibility fixes:
1085
1086 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 1087 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 1088
14eb7697 1089 Documentation fixes:
1090
1091 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
1092 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 1093
d536010b 1094 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 1095
824a5eb0 1096 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
1097
836a51a2 10985.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 1099 Backward compatibility fixes:
1100
1101 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
1102 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
1103 circumstances.
1104 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
1105
c47cd2ce 1106 Documentation fixes:
1107
1108 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
1109 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
1110 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

3143ee5f 11125.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
1113
1114 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
1115 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
1116
1117 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
1118
1119 Cut another release.

1127 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1128
2f3f09d4 1129 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1130
2f3f09d4 1131 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1132 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1133 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1134
2f3f09d4 1135 Documentation:
72697c1d 1136
2f3f09d4 1137 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1138 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1139
2f3f09d4 1140 Changes:
cb1e348b 1141
2f3f09d4 1142 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1143 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1144 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1145

0d47e040 1147
1148 Backward compatibility fixes:
1149
1150 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1151 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1152
1153 Bug fixes:
1154
ab4df9f8 1155 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1156 been made immutable.
1157
0d47e040 1158 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1159 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1160 example) Coro is loaded.
1161
1162 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1163 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1164
1165 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1166 using MooseX::Deamonize
1167
1168 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1169 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1170 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1171 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1172 deployed in these environments.
1173
c79bd3b0 1174 Enhancements:
1175
1176 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1177 the remote request.

1180 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1181 file for your application.
1182
4373973a 1183 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1184 engines clarified.
1185
1186 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1187 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1188 use the normal request function against a local server instead.

f899107d 1192 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1193 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1194 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1195
1196 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1197
e3557c86 1198 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1199 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1200
1201 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1202 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1203
1204 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1205 was not breaking out correctly
1206
f899107d 1207 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1208 to also work in the $c->component method.
1209
5ff374b5 1210 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1211 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1212 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1213 mode.
2e4a8275 1214 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1215
52d65afe 1216 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1217
1218 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1219
1220 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1221 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1222 names.
1223
1224 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.

1f440f55 12265.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1227
1228 Bug fixes:
1229 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1230 not being installed.
1231
1232 Refactoring:
1233 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1234 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1235 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

2cd94c07 1239 Bug fixes:
1240 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1241
1242 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1243 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1244 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1245
2cd94c07 1246 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1247
2cd94c07 1248 Known problems:
1249 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1250 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1251 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1252 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1253
2cd94c07 1254 Documentation:
1255 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1256 of Catalyst has been much improved.

9bf423ee 1259
1260 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1261 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1262 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1263 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1264 returning true.
1265 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1266
0fd00e7b 1267 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1268 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1269 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1270
9bf423ee 1271 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1272 in Catalyst::execute
1273
1274 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1275 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1276 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1277
1278 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1279 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1280 (e.g. /account/*)
1281
1282 New features:
1283 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1284 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1285
1286 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1287 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1288 developers without changing their application code.
1289
45cab07f 12905.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1291
718e6314 1292 Bug fixes:
1293 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1294 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1295 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1296 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1297 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1298
6ca73485 1299 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1300 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1301
7258c943 13025.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1303
1304 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1305
1306 Removed features:
1307
1308 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1309 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1310 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1311 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1312 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1313 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1314 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1315
1316 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1317 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1318 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1319 class, please tell us *now*.
1320
94edbd2c 13215.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1322
8865ee12 1323 New features:
1324 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1325 title.
2af2a5bf 1326 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1327 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1328 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1329 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1330 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1331 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1332
c046f519 1333 Bug fixes:
1334 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1335 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1336 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1337 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1338 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1339 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1340 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1341 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1342 failing case.
efc2aac0 1343 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1344 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1345 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1346 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1347 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1348 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1349 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1350 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1351
fa325a7d 1352 Documentation:
1353 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1354 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1355
47990d3f 13565.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1357
1358 New features:
4d723d12 1359 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1360 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1361 confused.
1362
47990d3f 1363 Warning fixes:
1364 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1365 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1366
b2910653 13675.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1368
808db1d6 1369 Bug fixes:
1370 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1371
7f891e1e 1372 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1373 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1374
b2910653 1375 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1376
d1672c76 13775.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00

03235666 13825.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1383
2afd1ea3 1384 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1385 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1386 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1387 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1388
1389 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1390 application
1391
1392 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1393
2afd1ea3 1394 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1395 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1396 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1397 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1398 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1399
1f94dc3a 1400 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1401 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1402
9c64b93a 1403 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1404 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1405 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1406
ab83907b 1407 Refactoring:
1408 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1409 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1410
1411 Documentation:
1412 - Fix some typos

cba60982 14175.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1418
13c565fe 1419 New features:
1420 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1421 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1422 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1423 the default action creation.
1424
f5325631 1425 Bug fixes:
1426 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1427 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1428 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1429 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1430 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1431 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1432 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1433
1434 Documentation:
1435 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1436 point.
f8a54681 1437 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1438 values.
f73be6d2 1439 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1440
7aba3b2d 14415.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1442
1443 Bug fixes:
1444 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1445 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1446 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1447 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1448 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1449
1450 New features:
1451 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1452 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1453
1454 Documentation:
1455 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1456 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1457 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1458 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1459

46b58c90 1462 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1463 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1464 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1465 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1466 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1467 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1468 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1469 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1470 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1471
0319ec68 1472 New features:
1473 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1474 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1475 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1476 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1477 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1478 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1479 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1480 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1481
8fa9321c 1482 Documentation:
1483 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1484 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1485
1f52c1d2 1486 Cleanups:
1487 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1488 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1489 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1490
14a1ceef 14915.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1492
025d09f9 1493 New features:
1494 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1495 the content type and content length if available.
1496
13311c16 1497 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1498 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1499 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1500 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1501 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1502 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1503 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1504 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1505 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1506 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1507 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1508 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1509 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1510 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1511
13e46699 1512 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1513 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1514 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1515 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1516 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1517

52e23ad4 1520 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1521 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1522 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1523
1bebcac6 15245.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18

f0bb41af 15305.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1531
2689f8a4 1532 Bug fixed:
1533 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1534 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1535 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1536 which should not be encoded.
1537 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1538 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1539
1540 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1541 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1542 any set of args/captures.
1543
f54950f5 1544 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1545 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1546
0ff92c67 1547 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1548 removed.

955d6da6 1569 Deprecations:
1570 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1571 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1572 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

1d3a0700 1576 Documentation:
1577 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1578 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1579 MyApp::View::HTML).
1580
e1d59dc4 1581 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1582 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1583 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1584 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1585 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1586 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1587 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1588 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1589 argv key in the options hash.
1590 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1591 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1592 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1593 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose

1599 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1600 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1601 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1602 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1603 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

1610 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1611
1612 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1613
82701bda 1614 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1615 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1616 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1617 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1618 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1619 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1620 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1621 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1622 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1623 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1624 URI.
754e86c6 1625 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1626
c96cdcef 1627 New features:
e66329da 1628
c96cdcef 1629 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1630 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1631 less packed with information of no use.
1632
30079544 1633 Documentation:

30079544 1635 - Fix Pod nits (RT#52370)
1636
0ab4f753 16375.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 1638 Bug fixes:
1639 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1640 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1641 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1642 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1643
1644 Documentation:
1645 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.
5a7d7e5c 1646 - Fix reversal of SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO in previously correct nginx
1647 FastCGI documentation introduced in _02.

ef546d1e 16495.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1650 Bug fixes:
1651 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1652 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1653 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1654 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1655 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1656 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1657 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1658 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1659 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1660 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1661 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1662 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1663 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1664 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1665 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1666
2b3bb280 1667 Refactoring / cleanups:
1668 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
1669 (and then skipped) normally.

4fac276e 16745.80014_01 2009-11-22 20:01:23
c4efaa54 1675
1676 Bug fixes:
1677 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1678 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1679 on the old behaviour.
1680
1681 Refactoring / cleanups:
1682 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1683 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1684
568e11a2 16855.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1686
9f16fdf2 1687 Bug fixes:
1688 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1689 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1690 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1691 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1692 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1693 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1694 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1695 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1696 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1697 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1698 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1699 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1700 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1701 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1702 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1703 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1704 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1705 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1706 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1707
d71da6fe 1708 Documentation:
1709 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1710 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1711 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1712 deprecated and causes warnings).
1713 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1714 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1715 in the correct order.
1716 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1717 context.
08a2c908 1718 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1719 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1720 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1721
ab86b480 1722 New features:
1723 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1724 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1725 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1726 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1727 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1728 distributions
10d77181 1729 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1730 exception classes need to implement.
1731 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1732 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1733 use it.
9f16fdf2 1734
647a3de1 1735 Refactoring / cleanups:
1736 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1737 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1738 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1739 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1740 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1741 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1742 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.
647a3de1 1743
1be0c4f8 17445.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1745
85fc6206 1746 Bug fixes:
1747 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1748 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1749 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1750 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1751 method.
1752 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1753 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1754 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1755
1756 Documentation:
85fc6206 1757 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1758 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1759 warnings.
297ff4ce 1760
1761 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1762 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1763 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1764 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1765 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1766 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1771 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1772 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1773 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1774 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1775 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1776 is returned to 'actions'.
1777 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1778 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1779
1780 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1781 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1782 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1783
1784 Tests:
1785 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1786 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1787 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1790
9d59dde8 1791 Bug fixes:
1792 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1793 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1794 installed in @INC.
1795
f72168b7 17965.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 1797
1798 Bug fixes:
1799 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1800 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1801 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

1804
e7e4c469 1805 Bug fixes:
1806 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1807 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1808 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1809
455b342e 18105.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1811
4ffa3785 1812 Bug fixes:
1813 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1814 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1815 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1816 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1817 tests.
2f6049f2 1818 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1819 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1820 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1821 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1822 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1823 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1824 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1825 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1826 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1827 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1828 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1829 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1830 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1831
371c6f1a 1832 Refactoring / cleanups:
1833 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1834 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1835 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1836 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1837 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1838 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1839 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

1841 New features:
d05e45ce 1842 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1843 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1844 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1845 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1846 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1847 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1848 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1849 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1850 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1851 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1852 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1853 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1854 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1855 the request.
371c6f1a 1856
1fe85999 1857 Documentation:
1858 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1859 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1860 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1861 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1869 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1870 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1871 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1872 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1873 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1874 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1875 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1876 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1877 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1878
a375a206 1879 New features:
1880 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1881 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1882 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1883 URI.

3c9b6867 1887 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1888 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1889 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1890 applications.
655dfc2a 1891 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1892 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1893 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1894 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1895 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1896 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1897 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1898 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1899 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1900 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1901 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1902 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.

1909 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1910 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1911 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1912
371c6f1a 1913 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1914 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1915 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1916 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1917 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1918 error message.
1919 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1920 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1921 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1922 Fixes RT#47366
1923 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1924 again in Catalyst::Test

1944 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1945 later on
dd97c1ac 1946 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1947 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

92435154 19585.80004 2009-05-18 17:03:23
4373973a 1959 - Rename the actions attribute in Catalyst::Controller to
de144724 1960 _controller_actions to avoid name clashes with application
1961 controller naming. (random)

df3956bf 1978 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1979 to report 'Unknown Error'

e262f38e 1996 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1997 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1998 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1999 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 2000 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 2001 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 2002 disabling functionality from base controllers.
2003 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 2004 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 2012 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 2013 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
2014 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
2015 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 2016 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 2017
b8123bba 20185.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 2019 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 2020 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 2021 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 2022 configuration in your application.
2023 - Tests for this
05d79b22 2024 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
2025 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

02298d3a 2060 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 2061 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 2062 - Tests for this (radek)
2063 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
2064 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 2065 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 2066 - Tests for this (radek)

2104 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 2105 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
2106 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 2107 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 2108 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
2109 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
4373973a 2110 subroutine attributes for action declarations with an alternate
545e1e3a 2111 syntax.
e7924bb5 2112 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
2113 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.
2114 This is more correct, and avoids metaclass incompatibility in complex

23235.7099_01 2008-06-25 22:36:00
2324 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2325 throw warnings for two reasons:
2326 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
2327 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2328 instead
df3956bf 2329 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2330 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2331 method with a regex as the argument
2332 - remove 0-length query string components so warnings aren't thrown (RT #36428)
2333 - Update HTTP::Body dep so that the uploadtmp config value will work (RT #22540)
2334 - Fix for LocalRegex when used in the Root controller
