522134af 35.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
4 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
5 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
6 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
7 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 8
01733d0f 95.90042 - 2013-06-14
10 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
11 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 12 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
13 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
14 plugin
15 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
16 ask for encoding
17 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
18 caused trouble.
01733d0f 19
c287088e 205.90041 - 2013-06-14
21 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
22 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
23 this fixes all of them.
24 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
25 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
26 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
27 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
28 number decimals
29 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
30
c8d9e6f4 315.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 32 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
33 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
34 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 35 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
701e20e5 36 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on perl 5.17.11
37 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 38 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
39 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 40 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
41 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 42 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 43 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
44 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
45 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
46 termination).
8275d3b9 47 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
48 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
49 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
50 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
51 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
52 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 53 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
54 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
55 for more.
d18964f7 56 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 57
f653d2c8 585.90030 - 2013-04-12
59 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
60 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
61 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 62 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
63 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
64 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
65 resolve manually.
18df061a 66 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
67 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
68 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 69 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 70 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
71 - smarter valiation around action attributes.
5490e075 72
735.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 74 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
75 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
76 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
77 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
78 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
79 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 80 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
81 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
82 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
83 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 84 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 85 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 86 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 87 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 88
dbacbce4 895.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
07ec95ca 90 - Fix for perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
2fe6ed83 91 - Fix for perl 5.8. RT#61122
8c848c33 92 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on perl5.8
93 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 94
02f4beca 955.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
96 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
97 HTTP::Message.
98
d6ae5104 995.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 100 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 101
102 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
103 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
104
105 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
106
107 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
108 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
109
110 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
111
0df490ef 112 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
113 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
114 of request or response classes.
115
f0580bff 1165.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 117 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
118 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 119 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 120 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 121 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 122 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
123 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
124 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
125 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
126
cfdd890d 1275.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 128 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 129 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
130 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
131 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 132
f444811b 1335.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
134
258733f1 135 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
136 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
137
aa3897db 1385.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
139
140 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
141 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
142 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
143 of Catalyst.
144
1455.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
146
eff60019 147 New features:
148 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
149
a7d2a530 150 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 151 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
152 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
153
40c06ae4 154 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
155 are supplied.
156
157 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
158 top level config.
a7d2a530 159
b334a4de 160 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
161
162 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
163
3239be86 1645.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
165
57746b80 166 Distribution META.yml changes:
167 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
168 mis-parses from the documentation.
169 - x_authority key added.
170
9a649d25 171 Bug fixes:
172 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
173 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
174
1e089329 175 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
176 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
177 is less than helpful.
178
38e43e65 179 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
180 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
181 in bleadperl. RT#76437
182
2037f03f 183 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 184 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
185
d8ccdd9d 186 Documentation:
187 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
188 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
189 directly.
190 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 191 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 192 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 193
2114ee9f 1945.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
195
f7ac80ef 196 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 197 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
198 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
199 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
200 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
201 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
202 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
203 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 204 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
205 applications.
df894348 206 - --background option for the server script now only closes
207 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
208 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 209 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
210 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 211 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
212 callback.
f7ac80ef 213
fed36d61 2145.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 215
0c17b66d 216 Bug fixes:
217 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
218 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
219 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
220 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
221
8d196862 2225.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
223
0607947f 224 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 225 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
226 refactoring.
227
0607947f 228 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
229 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
230 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
231 included when not running from a checkout.
232
80267996 233 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
234
8529a7ea 235 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 236 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
237 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 238
d0cacee7 239 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
240
af09d56c 2415.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
242
d0cfd993 243 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 244 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 245 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
246 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
247
248 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
249 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
250 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
251
252 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 253 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 254 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
255 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
256
257 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
258
0aba7d92 259 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 260 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
261 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
262 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
263 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
264 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
265
d0cfd993 266 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 267 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 268 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
269 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
270
e6bcfe8e 271 Tests:
3d2c4feb 272 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 273
e1e5366d 274 Documentation:
275 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
276 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
277 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
278
e6bcfe8e 279 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
280 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
281 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
282
00341d81 2835.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
284
0d7bf3a9 285 New features:
286 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
287 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
288 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
289 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
290 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
291
1ce9c7f6 292 Bug fixes:
293 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 294 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
295 over that.
a465926f 296 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
297 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
298 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 299
4c21ba3b 3005.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
301
27b0a436 302 New features:
303 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
304 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
305 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
306 get them passed through to the application.
307
d685f38e 308 Doumentation:
309 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
310 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
311 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
312 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
313
f4de8c99 314 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 315 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
316 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
317 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
318 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
319 a value.
320 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
321 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
322 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 323
c7250231 324 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
325 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
326
849b1b24 3275.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
328
ab6c6d3d 329 New features:
330
331 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
332 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
333 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
334 whereas before you had to say:
335 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
336 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
337 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
338 the two.
339
cf49ace4 340 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
341 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
342 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
343 scripts in the application.
344 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
345 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
346 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
347 otherwise).
348
ab6c6d3d 349 Documentation:
350
351 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
352 to avoid confusion
353 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
354 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
355 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
356 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
357 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
358 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
359 and provide an alternative.
360
4ec26b6c 3615.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
362
65420d46 363 Bug fixes:
364
365 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
366 MyApp->engine_class.
367
a253d527 3685.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 369 Bug fixes:
370
371 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
372
e95b2b49 373 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
374 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
375 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
376 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
377 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
378 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
379
fabe0bc6 380 Enhancements:
381
382 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
383 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
384
5cb939e8 385 Backward compatibility fixes:
386
387 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
388 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
389
14eb7697 390 Documentation fixes:
391
392 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
393 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 394
d536010b 395 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 396
824a5eb0 397 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
398
836a51a2 3995.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 400 Backward compatibility fixes:
401
402 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
403 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
404 circumstances.
405 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
406
c47cd2ce 407 Documentation fixes:
408
409 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
410 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
411 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
412
3143ee5f 4135.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
414
415 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
416 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
417
418 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
419
420 Cut another release.

433 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
434 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 435
2f3f09d4 436 Documentation:
72697c1d 437
2f3f09d4 438 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
439 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 440
2f3f09d4 441 Changes:
cb1e348b 442
2f3f09d4 443 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
444 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
445 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)

cfb5d52a 4475.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 448
449 Backward compatibility fixes:
450
451 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
452 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
453
454 Bug fixes:
455
ab4df9f8 456 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
457 been made immutable.
458
0d47e040 459 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
460 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
461 example) Coro is loaded.
462
463 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
464 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
465
466 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
467 using MooseX::Deamonize
468
469 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
470 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
471 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
472 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
473 deployed in these environments.
474
c79bd3b0 475 Enhancements:
476
477 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
478 the remote request.
0d47e040 479
480 Documentation:
481 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
482 file for your application.
483
484 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
485 engines clarified.
486
487 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 488 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 489 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
490
b40baecd 4915.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
492
f899107d 493 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 494 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
495 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
496
497 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
498
e3557c86 499 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
500 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 501
502 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
503 IO::Handle's behaviour.
504
505 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
506 was not breaking out correctly
507
f899107d 508 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
509 to also work in the $c->component method.
510
5ff374b5 511 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
512 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
513 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
514 mode.
2e4a8275 515 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 516
52d65afe 517 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
518
519 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
520
521 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
522 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
523 names.
524
525 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
526
1f440f55 5275.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
528
529 Bug fixes:
530 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
531 not being installed.
532
533 Refactoring:
534 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
535 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
536 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

aceee8b5 5385.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
539
2cd94c07 540 Bug fixes:
541 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
542
543 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
544 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
545 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 546
2cd94c07 547 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 548
2cd94c07 549 Known problems:
550 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
551 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
552 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
553 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 554
2cd94c07 555 Documentation:
556 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
557 of Catalyst has been much improved.

07608083 5595.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 560
561 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 562 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
563 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
564 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
565 returning true.
566 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
567
0fd00e7b 568 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
569 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
570 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
571
9bf423ee 572 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
573 in Catalyst::execute
574
575 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
576 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
577 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
578
579 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
580 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
581 (e.g. /account/*)
582
583 New features:
584 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
585 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
586
587 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
588 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
589 developers without changing their application code.
590
45cab07f 5915.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
592
718e6314 593 Bug fixes:
594 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
595 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
596 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
597 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
598 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
599
6ca73485 600 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
601 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
602
7258c943 6035.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
604
605 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
606
607 Removed features:
608
609 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
610 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
611 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
612 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
613 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
614 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
615 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
616
617 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
618 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
619 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
620 class, please tell us *now*.
621
94edbd2c 6225.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
623
8865ee12 624 New features:
625 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
626 title.
2af2a5bf 627 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
628 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
629 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
630 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
631 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
632 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 633
c046f519 634 Bug fixes:
635 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
636 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 637 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
638 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
639 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
640 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
641 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 642 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 643 failing case.
efc2aac0 644 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
645 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
646 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
647 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
648 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
649 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
650 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
651 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 652
fa325a7d 653 Documentation:
654 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
655 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
656
47990d3f 6575.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
658
659 New features:
4d723d12 660 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
661 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
662 confused.
663
47990d3f 664 Warning fixes:
665 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 666 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
667
b2910653 6685.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
669
808db1d6 670 Bug fixes:
671 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
672
7f891e1e 673 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
674 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
675
b2910653 676 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
677
d1672c76 6785.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 679
680 Bug fixes:
681 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
682
03235666 6835.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
684
2afd1ea3 685 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 686 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
687 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
688 load Utils before MyApp.pm
689
690 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
691 application
692
693 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
694
2afd1ea3 695 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
696 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
697 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
698 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
699 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 700
1f94dc3a 701 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
702 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 703
9c64b93a 704 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
705 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
706 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
707
ab83907b 708 Refactoring:
709 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
710 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
711

cba60982 7185.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
719
13c565fe 720 New features:
721 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
722 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
723 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
724 the default action creation.
725
f5325631 726 Bug fixes:
727 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
728 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 729 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
730 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 731 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 732 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
733 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 734
735 Documentation:
736 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
737 point.
f8a54681 738 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
739 values.
f73be6d2 740 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 741
7aba3b2d 7425.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
743
744 Bug fixes:
745 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
746 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
747 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
748 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
749 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
750
751 New features:
752 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
753 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
754
755 Documentation:
756 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
757 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
758 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
759 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
760
e3a7414d 7615.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
762
46b58c90 763 Bug fixes:
671123ba 764 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
765 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
766 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 767 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
768 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 769 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
770 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 771 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 772
0319ec68 773 New features:
774 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
775 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
776 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
777 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 778 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
779 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 780 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 781 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 782
8fa9321c 783 Documentation:
784 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
785 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
786
1f52c1d2 787 Cleanups:
788 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
789 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
790 $Catalyst::VERSION.
791
14a1ceef 7925.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
793
025d09f9 794 New features:
795 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
796 the content type and content length if available.
797
13311c16 798 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 799 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 800 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
801 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
802 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
803 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 804 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 805 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
806 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 807 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
808 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 809 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
810 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
811 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 812
13e46699 813 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 814 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
815 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 816 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
817 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 818
d5c5d96f 8195.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
820
52e23ad4 821 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 822 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 823 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 824
1bebcac6 8255.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
826

f0bb41af 8315.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
832
2689f8a4 833 Bug fixed:
834 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
835 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
836 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
837 which should not be encoded.
838 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
839 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
840
841 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
842 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
843 any set of args/captures.
844
f54950f5 845 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
846 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
847
0ff92c67 848 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
849 removed.
c2f4efce 850
851 Documentation:
0ff92c67 852 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path

860
ca78941c 861 Bug fixed:
862 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
863 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 864 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 865
c9ec25f8 866 Documentation:
867 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 868 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 869
955d6da6 870 Deprecations:
871 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
872 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
873 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

876
1d3a0700 877 Documentation:
878 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
879 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
880 MyApp::View::HTML).
881
e1d59dc4 882 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 883 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 884 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
885 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 886 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
887 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
888 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 889 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
890 argv key in the options hash.
891 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
892 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
893 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 894 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
895 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 896 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
897 versions >= 0.93_01

3f07296e 899 Cleanups:
900 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
901 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
902 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
903 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
904 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

e66329da 909
b42b9094 910 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
911 encoding test controller.
e66329da 912
913 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
914
82701bda 915 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
916 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 917 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
918 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
919 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 920 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 921 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 922 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
923 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
924 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
925 URI.
754e86c6 926 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 927
c96cdcef 928 New features:
e66329da 929
c96cdcef 930 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
931 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
932 less packed with information of no use.
933
30079544 934 Documentation:

937
0ab4f753 9385.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 939 Bug fixes:
940 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
941 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
942 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 943 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 944
945 Documentation:
946 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ef546d1e 9505.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 951 Bug fixes:
952 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
953 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
954 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
955 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
956 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 957 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 958 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
959 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
960 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 961 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
962 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
963 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
964 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 965 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 966 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 967
2b3bb280 968 Refactoring / cleanups:
969 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
970 (and then skipped) normally.

c4efaa54 976
977 Bug fixes:
978 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
979 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
980 on the old behaviour.
981
982 Refactoring / cleanups:
983 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
984 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
985
568e11a2 9865.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
987
9f16fdf2 988 Bug fixes:
989 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
990 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
991 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 992 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
993 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 994 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 995 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 996 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 997 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
998 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
999 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1000 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1001 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1002 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1003 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 1004 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
1005 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1006 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1007 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1008
d71da6fe 1009 Documentation:
1010 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1011 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1012 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1013 deprecated and causes warnings).
1014 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1015 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1016 in the correct order.
1017 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1018 context.
08a2c908 1019 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1020 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1021 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1022
ab86b480 1023 New features:
1024 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1025 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1026 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1027 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1028 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1029 distributions
10d77181 1030 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1031 exception classes need to implement.
1032 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1033 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1034 use it.
9f16fdf2 1035
647a3de1 1036 Refactoring / cleanups:
1037 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1038 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1039 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1040 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1041 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1042 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1043 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1047 Bug fixes:
1048 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1049 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1050 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1051 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1052 method.
1053 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1054 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1055 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1056
1057 Documentation:
85fc6206 1058 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1059 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1060 warnings.
297ff4ce 1061
1062 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1063 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1064 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1065 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1066 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1067 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1073 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1074 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1075 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1076 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1077 is returned to 'actions'.
1078 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1079 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1080
1081 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1082 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1083 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1084
1085 Tests:
1086 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1087 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1088 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

9d59dde8 1092 Bug fixes:
1093 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1094 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1095 installed in @INC.

1099 Bug fixes:
1100 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1101 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1102 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

e7e4c469 1106 Bug fixes:
1107 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1108 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1109 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

4ffa3785 1113 Bug fixes:
1114 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1115 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1116 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1117 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1118 tests.
2f6049f2 1119 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1120 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1121 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1122 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1123 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1124 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1125 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1126 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1127 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1128 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1129 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1130 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1131 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1132
371c6f1a 1133 Refactoring / cleanups:
1134 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1135 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1136 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1137 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1138 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1139 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1140 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1141
1142 New features:
d05e45ce 1143 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1144 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1145 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1146 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1147 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1148 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1149 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1150 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1151 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1152 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1153 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1154 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1155 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1156 the request.

1170 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1171 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1172 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1173 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1174 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1175 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1176 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1177 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1178 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1179
a375a206 1180 New features:
1181 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1182 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1183 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1

3c9b6867 1188 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1189 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1190 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1191 applications.
655dfc2a 1192 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1193 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1194 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1195 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1196 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1197 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1198 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1199 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1200 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1201 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1210 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1211 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1212 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1213
371c6f1a 1214 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1215 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1216 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1217 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1218 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1219 error message.
1220 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1221 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1222 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1223 Fixes RT#47366

1245 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1246 later on
dd97c1ac 1247 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1248 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

545e1e3a 1278 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1279 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1280 to report 'Unknown Error'

cf37d21a 1300 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1301 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1302 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1303 disabling functionality from base controllers.

1316 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1317 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 1318
b8123bba 13195.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1320 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1321 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.
1322 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1323 configuration in your application.

02298d3a 1363 - Tests for this (radek)
1364 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1365 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

545e1e3a 1408 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1409 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1410 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1411 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1412 syntax.
e7924bb5 1413 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
1414 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.
1415 This is more correct, and avoids metaclass incompatibility in complex
545e1e3a 1416 cases

1625 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1626 throw warnings for two reasons:
1627 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
1628 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1629 instead
