d6ae5104 35.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
9f6f4a87 4 - Change Catalsyt _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
5
6 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
7 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
8
9 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
10
11 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
12 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
13
14 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
15
0df490ef 16 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
17 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
18 of request or response classes.
19
f0580bff 205.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 21 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
22 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 23 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 24 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 25 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 26 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
27 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
28 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
29 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
30
cfdd890d 315.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 32 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 33 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179

89ba65d5 36
f444811b 375.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
38
258733f1 39 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
40 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
41
aa3897db 425.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
43
44 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
45 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
46 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
47 of Catalyst.
48
495.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
50
eff60019 51 New features:
52 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
53
a7d2a530 54 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 55 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
56 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
57
40c06ae4 58 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
59 are supplied.
60
61 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
62 top level config.
a7d2a530 63
b334a4de 64 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
65
66 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
67
3239be86 685.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
69
57746b80 70 Distribution META.yml changes:
71 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
72 mis-parses from the documentation.
73 - x_authority key added.
74
9a649d25 75 Bug fixes:
76 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
77 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
78
1e089329 79 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
80 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
81 is less than helpful.
82
38e43e65 83 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
84 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
85 in bleadperl. RT#76437
86
2037f03f 87 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 88 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
89
d8ccdd9d 90 Documentation:
91 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
92 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
93 directly.
94 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 95 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 96 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 97
2114ee9f 985.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
99
f7ac80ef 100 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 101 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
102 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
103 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
104 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
105 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
106 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
107 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 108 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
109 applications.
df894348 110 - --background option for the server script now only closes
111 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
112 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 113 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
114 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 115 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
116 callback.
f7ac80ef 117
fed36d61 1185.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 119
0c17b66d 120 Bug fixes:
121 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
122 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
123 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
124 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
125
8d196862 1265.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
127
0607947f 128 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 129 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
130 refactoring.
131
0607947f 132 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
133 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
134 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
135 included when not running from a checkout.
136
80267996 137 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
138
8529a7ea 139 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 140 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
141 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 142
d0cacee7 143 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
144
af09d56c 1455.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
146
d0cfd993 147 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 148 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 149 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
150 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
151
152 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
153 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
154 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
155
156 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 157 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 158 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
159 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
160
161 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
162
0aba7d92 163 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 164 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
165 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
166 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
167 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
168 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
169
d0cfd993 170 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 171 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 172 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
173 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
174
e6bcfe8e 175 Tests:
3d2c4feb 176 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 177
e1e5366d 178 Documentation:
179 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
180 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
181 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
182
e6bcfe8e 183 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
184 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
185 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
186
00341d81 1875.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
188
0d7bf3a9 189 New features:
190 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
191 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
192 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
193 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
194 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
195
1ce9c7f6 196 Bug fixes:
197 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 198 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
199 over that.
a465926f 200 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
201 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
202 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 203
4c21ba3b 2045.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
205
27b0a436 206 New features:
207 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
208 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
209 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
210 get them passed through to the application.
211
d685f38e 212 Doumentation:
213 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
214 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
215 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
216 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
217
f4de8c99 218 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 219 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
220 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
221 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
222 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
223 a value.
224 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
225 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
226 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 227
c7250231 228 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
229 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
230
849b1b24 2315.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
232
ab6c6d3d 233 New features:
234
235 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
236 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
237 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
238 whereas before you had to say:
239 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
240 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
241 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
242 the two.
243
cf49ace4 244 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
245 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
246 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
247 scripts in the application.
248 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
249 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
250 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
251 otherwise).
252
ab6c6d3d 253 Documentation:
254
255 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
256 to avoid confusion
257 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
258 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
259 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
260 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
261 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
262 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
263 and provide an alternative.
264
4ec26b6c 2655.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
266
65420d46 267 Bug fixes:
268
269 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
270 MyApp->engine_class.
271
a253d527 2725.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 273 Bug fixes:
274
275 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
276
e95b2b49 277 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
278 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
279 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
280 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
281 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
282 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
283
fabe0bc6 284 Enhancements:
285
286 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
287 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
288
5cb939e8 289 Backward compatibility fixes:
290
291 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
292 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
293
14eb7697 294 Documentation fixes:
295
296 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
297 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 298
d536010b 299 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 300
824a5eb0 301 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
302
836a51a2 3035.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 304 Backward compatibility fixes:
305
306 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
307 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
308 circumstances.
309 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
310
c47cd2ce 311 Documentation fixes:
312
313 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
314 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
315 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
316
3143ee5f 3175.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
318
319 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
320 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
321
322 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
323
324 Cut another release.

c20710a1 328 See Catalyst::Delta for the major changes in this release.
72697c1d 329
c20710a1 330 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 331
332 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 333
2f3f09d4 334 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 335
2f3f09d4 336 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
337 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
338 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 339
2f3f09d4 340 Documentation:
72697c1d 341
2f3f09d4 342 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
343 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 344
2f3f09d4 345 Changes:
cb1e348b 346
2f3f09d4 347 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
348 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
349 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 350
cfb5d52a 3515.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 352
353 Backward compatibility fixes:
354
355 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
356 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
357
358 Bug fixes:
359
ab4df9f8 360 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
361 been made immutable.
362
0d47e040 363 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
364 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
365 example) Coro is loaded.
366
367 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
368 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
369
370 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
371 using MooseX::Deamonize
372
373 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
374 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
375 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
376 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
377 deployed in these environments.
378
c79bd3b0 379 Enhancements:
380
381 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
382 the remote request.
0d47e040 383
384 Documentation:
385 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
386 file for your application.
387
388 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
389 engines clarified.
390
391 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 392 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 393 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
394
b40baecd 3955.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
396
f899107d 397 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 398 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
399 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
400
401 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
402
e3557c86 403 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
404 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 405
406 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
407 IO::Handle's behaviour.
408
409 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
410 was not breaking out correctly
411
f899107d 412 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
413 to also work in the $c->component method.
414
5ff374b5 415 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
416 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
417 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
418 mode.
2e4a8275 419 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 420
52d65afe 421 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
422
423 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
424
425 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
426 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
427 names.
428
429 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
430
1f440f55 4315.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
432
433 Bug fixes:
434 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
435 not being installed.
436
437 Refactoring:
438 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
439 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
440 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
441
aceee8b5 4425.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
443
2cd94c07 444 Bug fixes:
445 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
446
447 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
448 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
449 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 450
2cd94c07 451 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 452
2cd94c07 453 Known problems:
454 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
455 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
456 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
457 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 458
2cd94c07 459 Documentation:
460 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
461 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 462
07608083 4635.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 464
465 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 466 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
467 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
468 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
469 returning true.
470 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
471
0fd00e7b 472 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
473 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
474 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
475
9bf423ee 476 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
477 in Catalyst::execute
478
479 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
480 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
481 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
482
483 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
484 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
485 (e.g. /account/*)
486
487 New features:
488 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
489 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
490
491 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
492 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
493 developers without changing their application code.

45cab07f 4955.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
496
718e6314 497 Bug fixes:
498 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
499 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
500 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
501 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
502 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
503
6ca73485 504 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
505 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
506
7258c943 5075.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
508
509 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
510
511 Removed features:
512
513 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
514 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
515 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
516 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
517 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
518 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
519 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
520
521 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
522 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
523 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
524 class, please tell us *now*.
525
94edbd2c 5265.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
527
8865ee12 528 New features:
529 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
530 title.
2af2a5bf 531 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
532 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
533 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
534 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
535 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
536 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 537
c046f519 538 Bug fixes:
539 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
540 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 541 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
542 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
543 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
544 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
545 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 546 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 547 failing case.
efc2aac0 548 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
549 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
550 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
551 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
552 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
553 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
554 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
555 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 556
fa325a7d 557 Documentation:
558 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
559 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
560
47990d3f 5615.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
562
563 New features:
4d723d12 564 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
565 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
566 confused.
567
47990d3f 568 Warning fixes:
569 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 570 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
571
b2910653 5725.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
573
808db1d6 574 Bug fixes:
575 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
576
7f891e1e 577 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
578 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
579
b2910653 580 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
581
d1672c76 5825.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00

03235666 5875.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
588
2afd1ea3 589 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 590 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
591 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
592 load Utils before MyApp.pm
593
594 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
595 application
596
597 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
598
2afd1ea3 599 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
600 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
601 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
602 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
603 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 604
1f94dc3a 605 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
606 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 607
9c64b93a 608 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
609 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
610 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
611
ab83907b 612 Refactoring:
613 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
614 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
615
616 Documentation:

cba60982 6225.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
623
13c565fe 624 New features:
625 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
626 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
627 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
628 the default action creation.
629
f5325631 630 Bug fixes:
631 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
632 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 633 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
634 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 635 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 636 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
637 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 638
639 Documentation:
640 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
641 point.
f8a54681 642 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
643 values.
f73be6d2 644 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 645
7aba3b2d 6465.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
647
648 Bug fixes:
649 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
650 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
651 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
652 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
653 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
654
655 New features:
656 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
657 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
658
659 Documentation:
660 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
661 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
662 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
663 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
664
e3a7414d 6655.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
666
46b58c90 667 Bug fixes:
671123ba 668 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
669 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
670 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 671 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
672 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 673 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
674 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 675 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 676
0319ec68 677 New features:
678 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
679 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
680 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
681 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 682 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
683 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 684 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 685 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 686
8fa9321c 687 Documentation:
688 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
689 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
690
1f52c1d2 691 Cleanups:
692 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
693 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
694 $Catalyst::VERSION.
695
14a1ceef 6965.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
697
025d09f9 698 New features:
699 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
700 the content type and content length if available.
701
13311c16 702 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 703 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 704 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
705 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
706 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
707 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 708 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 709 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
710 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 711 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
712 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 713 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
714 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
715 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 716
13e46699 717 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 718 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
719 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 720 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
721 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 722
d5c5d96f 7235.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
724
52e23ad4 725 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 726 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 727 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 728
1bebcac6 7295.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
730
731 New features:
732 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
733 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)

f0bb41af 7355.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
736
2689f8a4 737 Bug fixed:
738 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
739 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
740 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
741 which should not be encoded.
742 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
743 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
744
745 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
746 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
747 any set of args/captures.
748
f54950f5 749 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
750 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
751
0ff92c67 752 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
753 removed.
c2f4efce 754
755 Documentation:
0ff92c67 756 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
757 for applications.
758 - Various minor typo fixes.
c2f4efce 759
4113e1bb 760 New features:

c6e5058f 7635.80018 2010-01-12 22:24:20
764
ca78941c 765 Bug fixed:
766 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
767 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 768 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 769
c9ec25f8 770 Documentation:
771 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 772 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 773
955d6da6 774 Deprecations:
775 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
776 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
777 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

780
1d3a0700 781 Documentation:
782 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
783 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
784 MyApp::View::HTML).
785
e1d59dc4 786 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 787 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 788 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
789 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 790 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
791 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
792 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 793 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
794 argv key in the options hash.
795 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
796 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
797 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 798 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
799 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 800 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
801 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 802
3f07296e 803 Cleanups:
804 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
805 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
806 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
807 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
808 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 814 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
815 encoding test controller.
e66329da 816
817 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
818
82701bda 819 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
820 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 821 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
822 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
823 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 824 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 825 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 826 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
827 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
828 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
829 URI.
754e86c6 830 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 831
c96cdcef 832 New features:
e66329da 833
c96cdcef 834 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
835 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
836 less packed with information of no use.

ea72fece 843 Bug fixes:
844 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
845 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
846 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 847 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 848
849 Documentation:

ef546d1e 8545.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 855 Bug fixes:
856 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
857 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
858 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
859 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
860 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 861 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 862 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
863 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
864 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 865 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
866 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
867 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
868 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 869 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 870 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 871
2b3bb280 872 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 880
881 Bug fixes:
882 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
883 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
884 on the old behaviour.
885
886 Refactoring / cleanups:
887 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
888 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
889
568e11a2 8905.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
891
9f16fdf2 892 Bug fixes:
893 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
894 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
895 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 896 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
897 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 898 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 899 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 900 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 901 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
902 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
903 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 904 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
905 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
906 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
907 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 908 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
909 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
910 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
911 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 912
d71da6fe 913 Documentation:
914 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 915 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 916 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
917 deprecated and causes warnings).
918 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
919 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
920 in the correct order.
921 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
922 context.
08a2c908 923 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 924 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 925 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 926
ab86b480 927 New features:
928 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 929 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 930 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
931 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 932 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
933 distributions
10d77181 934 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
935 exception classes need to implement.
936 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
937 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
938 use it.
9f16fdf2 939
647a3de1 940 Refactoring / cleanups:
941 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
942 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
943 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
944 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
945 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
946 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 947 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 951 Bug fixes:
952 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
953 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
954 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
955 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
956 method.
957 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
958 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 959 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 960

963 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
964 warnings.
297ff4ce 965
966 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 967 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
968 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
969 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
970 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 971 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

d367bfc9 978 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
979 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 980 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
981 is returned to 'actions'.
982 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
983 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 984
985 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 986 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 987 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 988
989 Tests:
990 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
991 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
992 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

995
9d59dde8 996 Bug fixes:
997 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
998 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
999 installed in @INC.

1003 Bug fixes:
1004 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1005 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1006 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

e7e4c469 1010 Bug fixes:
1011 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1012 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1013 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

1016
4ffa3785 1017 Bug fixes:
1018 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1019 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1020 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1021 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1022 tests.
2f6049f2 1023 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1024 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1025 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1026 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1027 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1028 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1029 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1030 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1031 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1032 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1033 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1034 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1035 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1036
371c6f1a 1037 Refactoring / cleanups:
1038 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1039 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1040 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1041 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1042 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1043 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1044 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1045
1046 New features:
d05e45ce 1047 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1048 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1049 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1050 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1051 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1052 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1053 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1054 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1055 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1056 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1057 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1058 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1059 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1060 the request.
371c6f1a 1061
1fe85999 1062 Documentation:
1063 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1064 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1065 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1066 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1072 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1073 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1074 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1075 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1076 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1077 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1078 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1079 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1080 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1081 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1082 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1083
a375a206 1084 New features:
1085 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1086 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1087 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1088 URI.

1091
3c9b6867 1092 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1093 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1094 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1095 applications.
655dfc2a 1096 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1097 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1098 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1099 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1100 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1101 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1102 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1103 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1104 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1105 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1112 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1113 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1114 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1115 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1116 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1117
371c6f1a 1118 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1119 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1120 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1121 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1122 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1123 error message.
1124 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1125 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1126 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1127 Fixes RT#47366
1128 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1129 again in Catalyst::Test

1149 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1150 later on
dd97c1ac 1151 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1152 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

545e1e3a 1182 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1183 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1184 to report 'Unknown Error'

545e1e3a 1202 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1203 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1204 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1205 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1206 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1207 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1208 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version

1219 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1220 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1221 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)

b8123bba 12235.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1224 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1225 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.

545e1e3a 1279 spurious warnings
1280 - Add a warning for the old ::[MVC]:: style naming scheme
1281 - Test for this

1292 forked restart watcher process so native Moose apps using
545e1e3a 1293 immutable restart correctly.
1294 - Tests for this
107d0ba0 1295 - Bump Moose dependency to 0.70 so that we avoid nasty surprises

545e1e3a 1312 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1313 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1314 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1315 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1316 syntax.
e7924bb5 1317 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose

1529 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1530 throw warnings for two reasons:

1532 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1533 instead
df3956bf 1534 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1535 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1536 method with a regex as the argument
