15 (hobbs++)
16 - do not require MXRWO if Moose is new enough to have cored it (ether++)
17 - documentation improvements (ether++)

20 option (melmothx++)
21 - Better debug output when using Hash::MultiValue (tremor69++)
f7f3681c 22 - Fixes for detecting debug terminal size (simonamor++)
f65b6e93 23
7213dd01 245.90114 - 2016-12-19
25 - Fixed regression introduced in the last version (5.90113) which caused
26 application to hang when the action private name contained a string
27 like 'foo/bar..html'. If you are running 5.90113 you should consider this
28 a required update.
59e4fb5d 29 - Tweaked travis CI script.
7213dd01 30
ffe72ea6 315.90113 - 2016-12-15
32 - Fixed issue with $controller->action_for when targeting an action in
33 a namespace nested inside the current controller and the current controller
34 is a 'root' controller.
35 - Enhanced $controller->action_for so that you can reference the 'parent'
36 controller via relative path (eg ->action_for('../foo')).
37 - Backcompat fix for people that made the mistake of doing $c->{stash}
d7325e05 38 - Sort controllers in setup_actions so cross-controller precedence is
39 consistent.
40
a050c28a 415.90112 - 2016-07-25
0fb9642d 42 - Spelling fixes from Debian group.
a050c28a 43 - Fixed regression introduced in last release that caused the code to crap out
44 if you set the encoding to 'undef'.
45
bde75a9e 465.90111 - 2016-07-20
47 - Improved documentation around some of the unicode changes; tests (melmothx++)
48
de2e9a6f 495.90110 - 2016-07-20
103f2d96 50 - Better catching of HTTP style exceptions so that you can reliable use one to
51 override many core method.
52 - Documention on better ways to catch and handle Unicode errors
53 - We now check the unicode in your URL request queries and raise an error if the
54 check fails. This was done to be consistent with what we do in other parts of
55 the code (such as in args, or POSTed parameters). If this breaks your code in
56 ways you don't want to fix, you may disable this using the global configuration
57 setting, "do_not_check_query_encoding".
58 - Removed configuration setting, "decode_query_using_global_encoding" since it no
59 longer does anything useful. Query decoding follows from whatever you set the
60 global encoding to, unless you specify an alternative or to not decode.
61
5df9a4c5 625.90106 - 2016-07-05
63 - Fixed regression in debug screen rendering of the private names in chained
64 actions caused by commit 5dd46e24eedec447bdfbc4061ed683b5a17a7b0c.
65 - Fixed incorrect date entered for the release of 5.90105
66 - Fixed some incorrect code in a test case that might be causing test fails
67 in some configurations.
68
695.90105 - 2016-06-08
2d4da72c 70 - Tweak some test cases to try and prevent them from failing in limited cases.
71 - Changed how we compose traits onto the response, request, and stats class so
72 that we compose just once at setup time (performance optimization). Also added
73 a debug screen at startup to display composed classes to help with debugging.
cc7af078 74 - Fixed a regressed caused by the changes we made to the way ->state works so that
fd1fe4c7 75 now when you forward to an action and that action throws an exception, $c->state
cc7af078 76 is set to 0, instead of the value of the exeption (this is to be as indicated by
fd1fe4c7 77 the documentation). (cventers++ for reported bug and test case).
18adb1ed 78 - Changed the code that detects if you try to set HTTP headers after headers are
79 finalized to not warn if you are just requested the response header state. Tweaked
80 this error message a bit to help people understand it.
2d4da72c 81
163b3de6 825.90104 - 2016-04-04
83 - Merged pull request #131, fix for noisy debug logs when used type constraints
84 in your actions. Additional changes to the developer debug screen output to
85 improve reporting details.
86 - Merged pull request #133, fix for case when a file upload filename contains
87 wide characters which caused the filename to not appear in the uploads hash.
88
ed60d917 895.90103 - 2015-11-12
4c71cf1b 90 - More documentation fixes (thanks to the debian maintainers and melmothx++)
91 - Fixed the way we parse subroutine attribute values to fix a regression
92 introduced in 5.90102. This is a recommended upgrade (tsibley++, mst++)
93 - Fixed regression around auto actions that escape by throwing an exception
94 which was introduced in the last release.
ed906c97 95 - Bumped namespace::autoclean dep to latest since tests require -except
4c71cf1b 96
b8ef930c 975.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 98 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
99 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
100 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 101 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 102 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
103 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 104 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e459bd03 105 - $c->state is now preserved over actions in a chain, and across begin,
106 auto, ->forward and ->detach.
e43b00f9 107
d2995a76 1085.90101 - 2015-09-04
109 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
110 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
111
5e7e6b27 1125.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 113 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
114 with type constraints.
115 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 116 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 117 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
118 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 119 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 120 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 121
a1dba4cf 1225.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 123 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
124 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
125 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 126 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
127 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
128 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
129 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 130
ed5a562b 1315.90096 - 2015-07-27
132 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
133 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
134 to define behavior better.
135
3f955f48 1365.90095 - 2015-07-27
137 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
138 on CPAN testers.
139 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
140 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
141 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
142 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 143
b0ff1be8 1445.90094 - 2015-07-24
145 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
146 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
147 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 148 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
149 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 150 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
151 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 152 - Merged Pull Requests:

b0ff1be8 159
80ba671f 1605.90093 - 2015-05-29
161 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
162 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
163
5af5f973 1645.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 165 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
166 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 167 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
168 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
169 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
170 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 171
1725.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 173 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
174 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
175 even though they were actually created).
176
7dac038c 1775.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 178 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
179 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
180 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
181 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
182 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
183
630ad67c 1845.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 185 - Added swanky github badges.
186 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 187 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
188 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
189 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
190 retrieved.
191
718a1619 1925.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 193 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
194 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 195 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
196 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
197 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 198
1592e3ff 1995.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 200 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
201 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
202 test fail.
203 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
204 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
205 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
206 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
207 and imported types.
d9f0a350 208 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
209 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
210 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 211 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
212 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
213 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
214 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
215 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 216 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
217 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
218 component.
ec4d7259 219 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
220 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
221 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
222 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
223 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 224 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
225 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 226 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
227 they are combined.
3e560748 228 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
229 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
230 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
231 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
232 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
233 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 234 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
235 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
236 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 237 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
238 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 239 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 240 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 241 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
242 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
243 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 244
2455.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 246 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 247 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 248 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
249 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 250 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
251 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 252 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
253 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 254 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 255 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 256
9f3e69ee 2575.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 258 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
259 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
260 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
261 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
262 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
263 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
264 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 265 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
266 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 267 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
268 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
269 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 270
8479713c 2715.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 272 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
273 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 274 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 275 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 276 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 277 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 278 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 279 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 280 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
281 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
282 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
283 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
284 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 285
2865.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 287 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 288 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 289 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
290 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
291 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
292 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 293
7131401a 2945.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 295 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
296 to prevent it happening again.
297
7131401a 2985.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 299 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
300 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
301 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
302 test case to prevent regressions.
303
7131401a 3045.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 305 - Minor documentation corrections
306 - Make the '79 development series stable
307
d2000928 3085.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
309 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
310 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 311 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 312 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 313
3145.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 315 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
316 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
317 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 318 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
319 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
320 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 321
b274486c 3225.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 323 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 324 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
325 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
326 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
327 note posted a few months ago.
328 - Added my name to the contributors list
329
6dcc5307 3305.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
331 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 332 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
333 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
334 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
335 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
336 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
337 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
338 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
339 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
340 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
341 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
342 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 343
c017b11b 3445.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 345 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
346 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
347 global variable.
348 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 349 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
350 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
351 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
352 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
353 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 354 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 355 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 356 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 357 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
358 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 359
501605db 3605.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
361 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
362 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
363
bd4b086b 3645.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
365 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
366 changes.
367
3685.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 369 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
370 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 371 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 372 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 373 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 374 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
375 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 376 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
377 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
378 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 379 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 380 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
381 correct if incorrect :)
382 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
383 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 384 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 385 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 386 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
387 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 388 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 389 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
390 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
391 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 392 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 393 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 394 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
395 you want to use.
342d2169 396 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
397 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
398 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
399 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
400 request uses.
460bb45b 401
a24232f9 4025.90079 - 2015-01-02
403 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
404 rt #101243)
405 - updated year in copyright notices
406
b94f8e72 4075.90078 - 2014-12-30
408 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 409 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 410 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
411 trouble. (davewood++);
412 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
413 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
414 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
415
ee2c12fd 4165.90077 - 2014-11-18
417 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
418 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
419 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
420 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
421 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
422
9c86666a 4235.90076 - 2014-11-13
424 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
425 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
426 HTTP Exception middleware.
427
0810283f 4285.90075 - 2014-10-06
429 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
430 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
431 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
432 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
433 you really need to review this exploit.
434
c027f9c4 4355.90074 - 2014-10-01
436 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
437
2be363b7 4385.90073 - 2014-09-23
439 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
440 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
441 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 442 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
443 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 444 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 445
4f96d61c 4465.90072 - 2014-09-15
447 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
448 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
449 so you can go to hunt it out.
450
d5765d73 4515.90071 - 2014-08-10
452 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
453 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
454 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
455 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
456 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 457 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 458
b96bd9f1 4595.90070 - 2014-08-07
460 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
461
1893c194 4625.90069_004
463 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
464 certain tests. No other changes.
465
310c2a39 4665.90069_003
467 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 468 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
469 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
470 a bit.
471 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
472 anything new.
eae29f6e 473 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
474 type response.
475 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
476 improvements.
9c38cb50 477
91789f94 4785.90069_002
3e6ee020 479 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
480 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
481 questions or problems!
482 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
483 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
484 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
485 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 486 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
487 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
488 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 489 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
490 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
491
1b526dcc 4925.90069_001
41bf18c5 493 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
494 - documentation and test fixes
495
8f3c0676 4965.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 497 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
498 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
499 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
500 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 501 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 502 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 503 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 504
13adef05 5055.90064 - 2014-05-05
506 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
507 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
508
5095.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 510 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
511 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
512 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
513 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 514 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
515 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 516 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
517 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
518 configuration.
519 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 520s
5215.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 522 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
523 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
524
c8ad8cbc 5255.90061 - 2014-03-10
526 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
527 introduced by a change in December.
528
de9bcba0 5295.90060 - 2014-02-07
530 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
531
78acc1f7 532
26b42801 5335.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 534 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 535 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 536 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 537 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
538 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 539
b8534a44 5405.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 541 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
542 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 5435.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 544 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
545 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
546 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
547 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
548 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 549 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 550 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 551 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
552 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 553 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
554 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
555 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 556
7af15a33 5575.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 558 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 559 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
560 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 561 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
562 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
563 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 564
97e0c7c5 5655.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 566 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
567 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
568 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
569 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
570 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
571 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
572 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
573 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 574 to work much better.
575 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
576 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
577 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
578 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
579 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
580 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
581 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
582 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 583 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
584 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 585
78acc1f7 5865.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
587 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
588 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
589 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
590 will be broken.
591
5bb2a5b3 5925.90053 - 2013-12-21
593 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
594 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
595 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
596 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
597 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
598 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 599
7d01797b 6005.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 601
02352a28 602 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
603 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 604 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
605 does not exist.
606 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 607 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 608 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
609
610 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
611 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
612 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
613 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
614
3d3ea779 615 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
616 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 617 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 618 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
619 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 620
707988f8 6215.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 622 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 623 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
624
31bd6aec 6255.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 626 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
627 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
628 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 629
55119d7b 630 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
631 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
632 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
633
634 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
635 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
636 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
637 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 638
a61b6983 6395.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
640 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 641 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 642
6435.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 644 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
645 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
646 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
647 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
648 HTML forms.
ba1734df 649 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
650 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
651 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 652 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
653 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
654 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
655 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
656 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 657
fd5fb3a8 6585.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 659 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 660 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 661 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 662 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
663 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
664 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
665 those keys already exist). Keys added:
666 - plack.request.query
667 - plack.request.body
668 - plack.request.merged
669 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 670 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 671 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
672 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
673 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
674 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
675 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
676 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
677 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 678 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
679 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
680 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 681 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
682 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
683 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
684 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
685 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
686 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 687 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
688 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 689
b3070177 6905.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
691 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 692 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 693 updates, including:
694 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
695 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
696 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
697 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
698 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
699 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
700 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
701 a development setup (ether++)
702
e2aa4a21 7035.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
704 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
705 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
706 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
707 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 708 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
709 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
710 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 711
522134af 7125.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
713 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
714 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
715 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
716 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 717
01733d0f 7185.90042 - 2013-06-14
719 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
720 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 721 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
722 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
723 plugin
724 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
725 ask for encoding
726 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
727 caused trouble.
01733d0f 728
c287088e 7295.90041 - 2013-06-14
730 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
731 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
732 this fixes all of them.
733 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
734 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
735 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
736 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
737 number decimals
738 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
739
c8d9e6f4 7405.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 741 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
742 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
743 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 744 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 745 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 746 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 747 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
748 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 749 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
750 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 751 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 752 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
753 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
754 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
755 termination).
8275d3b9 756 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
757 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
758 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
759 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
760 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
761 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 762 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
763 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
764 for more.
d18964f7 765 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 766
f653d2c8 7675.90030 - 2013-04-12
768 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
769 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
770 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 771 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
772 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
773 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
774 resolve manually.
18df061a 775 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
776 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
777 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 778 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 779 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 780 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 781
7825.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 783 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
784 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
785 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
786 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
787 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
788 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 789 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
790 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
791 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
792 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 793 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 794 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 795 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 796 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 797
dbacbce4 7985.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 799 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
800 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
801 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 802 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 803
02f4beca 8045.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
805 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
806 HTTP::Message.
807
d6ae5104 8085.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 809 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 810
811 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
812 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
813
814 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
815
816 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
817 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
818
819 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
820
0df490ef 821 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
822 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
823 of request or response classes.
824
f0580bff 8255.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 826 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
827 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 828 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 829 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 830 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 831 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
832 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
833 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
834 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
835
cfdd890d 8365.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 837 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 838 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
839 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
840 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 841
f444811b 8425.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
843
258733f1 844 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
845 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
846
aa3897db 8475.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
848
849 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
850 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
851 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
852 of Catalyst.
853
8545.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
855
eff60019 856 New features:
857 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
858
a7d2a530 859 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 860 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
861 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
862
40c06ae4 863 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
864 are supplied.
865
866 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
867 top level config.
a7d2a530 868
b334a4de 869 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
870
871 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
872
3239be86 8735.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
874
57746b80 875 Distribution META.yml changes:
876 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
877 mis-parses from the documentation.
878 - x_authority key added.
879
9a649d25 880 Bug fixes:
881 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
882 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
883
1e089329 884 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
885 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
886 is less than helpful.
887
38e43e65 888 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
889 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
890 in bleadperl. RT#76437
891
2037f03f 892 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 893 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
894
d8ccdd9d 895 Documentation:
896 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
897 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
898 directly.
899 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 900 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 901 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 902
2114ee9f 9035.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
904
f7ac80ef 905 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 906 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
907 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
908 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
909 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
910 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
911 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
912 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 913 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
914 applications.
df894348 915 - --background option for the server script now only closes
916 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
917 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 918 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
919 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 920 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
921 callback.
f7ac80ef 922
fed36d61 9235.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 924
0c17b66d 925 Bug fixes:
926 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
927 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
928 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
929 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
930
8d196862 9315.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
932
0607947f 933 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 934 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
935 refactoring.
936
0607947f 937 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 938 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 939 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
940 included when not running from a checkout.
941
80267996 942 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
943
8529a7ea 944 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 945 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
946 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 947
d0cacee7 948 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
949
af09d56c 9505.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
951
d0cfd993 952 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 953 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 954 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
955 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
956
957 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
958 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
959 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
960
961 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 962 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 963 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
964 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
965
966 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
967
0aba7d92 968 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 969 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
970 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
971 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
972 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
973 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
974
d0cfd993 975 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 976 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 977 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
978 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
979
e6bcfe8e 980 Tests:
3d2c4feb 981 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 982
e1e5366d 983 Documentation:
984 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
985 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
986 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
987
e6bcfe8e 988 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
989 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
990 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
991
00341d81 9925.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
993
0d7bf3a9 994 New features:
995 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
996 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
997 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
998 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
999 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
1000
1ce9c7f6 1001 Bug fixes:
1002 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 1003 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
1004 over that.
a465926f 1005 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
1006 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
1007 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 1008
4c21ba3b 10095.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
1010
27b0a436 1011 New features:
1012 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
1013 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
1014 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
1015 get them passed through to the application.
1016
4373973a 1017 Documentation:
d685f38e 1018 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
1019 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
1020 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
1021 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
1022
f4de8c99 1023 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 1024 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
1025 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
1026 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 1027 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 1028 a value.
1029 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
1030 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
1031 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 1032
c7250231 1033 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
1034 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
1035
849b1b24 10365.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
1037
ab6c6d3d 1038 New features:
1039
1040 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
1041 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
1042 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
1043 whereas before you had to say:
1044 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
1045 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
1046 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
1047 the two.
1048
cf49ace4 1049 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
1050 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
1051 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
1052 scripts in the application.
1053 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
1054 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
1055 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
1056 otherwise).
1057
ab6c6d3d 1058 Documentation:
1059
1060 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
1061 to avoid confusion
4373973a 1062 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 1063 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
1064 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
1065 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
1066 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
1067 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
1068 and provide an alternative.
1069
4ec26b6c 10705.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
1071
65420d46 1072 Bug fixes:
1073
1074 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
1075 MyApp->engine_class.
1076
a253d527 10775.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 1078 Bug fixes:
1079
4373973a 1080 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 1081
e95b2b49 1082 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
1083 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
1084 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
1085 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
1086 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
1087 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
1088
fabe0bc6 1089 Enhancements:
1090
1091 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
1092 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
1093
5cb939e8 1094 Backward compatibility fixes:
1095
1096 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 1097 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 1098
14eb7697 1099 Documentation fixes:
1100
1101 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
1102 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 1103
d536010b 1104 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 1105
824a5eb0 1106 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
1107
836a51a2 11085.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 1109 Backward compatibility fixes:
1110
1111 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
1112 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
1113 circumstances.
1114 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
1115
c47cd2ce 1116 Documentation fixes:
1117
1118 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
1119 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
1120 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
1121
3143ee5f 11225.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
1123
1124 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
1125 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
1126
1127 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
1128
1129 Cut another release.

2f3f09d4 1136
1137 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1138
2f3f09d4 1139 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1140
2f3f09d4 1141 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1142 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1143 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1144
2f3f09d4 1145 Documentation:
72697c1d 1146
2f3f09d4 1147 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1148 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1149
2f3f09d4 1150 Changes:
cb1e348b 1151
2f3f09d4 1152 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1153 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1154 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1155

0d47e040 1157
1158 Backward compatibility fixes:
1159
1160 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1161 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1162
1163 Bug fixes:
1164
ab4df9f8 1165 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1166 been made immutable.
1167
0d47e040 1168 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1169 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1170 example) Coro is loaded.
1171
1172 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1173 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1174
1175 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1176 using MooseX::Deamonize
1177
1178 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1179 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1180 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1181 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1182 deployed in these environments.
1183
c79bd3b0 1184 Enhancements:
1185
1186 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1187 the remote request.
0d47e040 1188
1189 Documentation:
1190 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1191 file for your application.
1192
4373973a 1193 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1194 engines clarified.
1195
1196 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1197 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1198 use the normal request function against a local server instead.

f899107d 1202 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1203 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1204 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1205
1206 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1207
e3557c86 1208 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1209 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1210
1211 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1212 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1213
1214 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1215 was not breaking out correctly
1216
f899107d 1217 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1218 to also work in the $c->component method.
1219
5ff374b5 1220 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1221 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1222 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1223 mode.
2e4a8275 1224 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1225
52d65afe 1226 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1227
1228 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1229
1230 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1231 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1232 names.
1233
1234 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
1235
1f440f55 12365.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1237
1238 Bug fixes:
1239 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1240 not being installed.
1241
1242 Refactoring:
1243 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1244 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1245 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
1246

2cd94c07 1249 Bug fixes:
1250 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1251
1252 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1253 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1254 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1255
2cd94c07 1256 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1257
2cd94c07 1258 Known problems:
1259 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1260 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1261 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1262 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1263
2cd94c07 1264 Documentation:
1265 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1266 of Catalyst has been much improved.

9bf423ee 1269
1270 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1271 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1272 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1273 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1274 returning true.
1275 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1276
0fd00e7b 1277 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1278 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1279 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1280
9bf423ee 1281 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1282 in Catalyst::execute
1283
1284 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1285 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1286 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1287
1288 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1289 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1290 (e.g. /account/*)
1291
1292 New features:
1293 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1294 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1295
1296 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1297 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1298 developers without changing their application code.
1299
45cab07f 13005.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1301
718e6314 1302 Bug fixes:
1303 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1304 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1305 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1306 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1307 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1308
6ca73485 1309 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1310 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1311
7258c943 13125.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1313
1314 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1315
1316 Removed features:
1317
1318 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1319 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1320 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1321 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1322 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1323 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1324 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1325
1326 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1327 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1328 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1329 class, please tell us *now*.
1330
94edbd2c 13315.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1332
8865ee12 1333 New features:
1334 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1335 title.
2af2a5bf 1336 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1337 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1338 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1339 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1340 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1341 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1342
c046f519 1343 Bug fixes:
1344 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1345 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1346 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1347 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1348 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1349 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1350 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1351 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1352 failing case.
efc2aac0 1353 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1354 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1355 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1356 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1357 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1358 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1359 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1360 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1361
fa325a7d 1362 Documentation:
1363 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1364 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1365
47990d3f 13665.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1367
1368 New features:
4d723d12 1369 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1370 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1371 confused.
1372
47990d3f 1373 Warning fixes:
1374 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1375 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1376
b2910653 13775.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1378
808db1d6 1379 Bug fixes:
1380 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1381
7f891e1e 1382 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1383 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1384
b2910653 1385 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1386
d1672c76 13875.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00

1391
03235666 13925.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1393
2afd1ea3 1394 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1395 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1396 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1397 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1398
1399 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1400 application
1401
1402 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1403
2afd1ea3 1404 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1405 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1406 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1407 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1408 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1409
1f94dc3a 1410 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1411 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1412
9c64b93a 1413 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1414 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1415 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1416
ab83907b 1417 Refactoring:
1418 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1419 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1420
1421 Documentation:
1422 - Fix some typos
1423

cba60982 14275.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1428
13c565fe 1429 New features:
1430 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1431 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1432 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1433 the default action creation.
1434
f5325631 1435 Bug fixes:
1436 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1437 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1438 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1439 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1440 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1441 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1442 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1443
1444 Documentation:
1445 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1446 point.
f8a54681 1447 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1448 values.
f73be6d2 1449 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1450
7aba3b2d 14515.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1452
1453 Bug fixes:
1454 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1455 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1456 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1457 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1458 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1459
1460 New features:
1461 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1462 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1463
1464 Documentation:
1465 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1466 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1467 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1468 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1469
e3a7414d 14705.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1471
46b58c90 1472 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1473 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1474 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1475 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1476 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1477 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1478 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1479 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1480 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1481
0319ec68 1482 New features:
1483 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1484 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1485 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1486 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1487 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1488 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1489 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1490 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1491
8fa9321c 1492 Documentation:
1493 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1494 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1495
1f52c1d2 1496 Cleanups:
1497 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1498 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1499 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1500
14a1ceef 15015.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1502
025d09f9 1503 New features:
1504 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1505 the content type and content length if available.
1506
13311c16 1507 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1508 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1509 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1510 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1511 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1512 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1513 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1514 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1515 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1516 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1517 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1518 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1519 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1520 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1521
13e46699 1522 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1523 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1524 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1525 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1526 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1527
d5c5d96f 15285.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1529
52e23ad4 1530 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1531 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1532 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1533
1bebcac6 15345.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18

f0bb41af 15405.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1541
2689f8a4 1542 Bug fixed:
1543 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1544 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1545 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1546 which should not be encoded.
1547 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1548 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1549
1550 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1551 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1552 any set of args/captures.
1553
f54950f5 1554 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1555 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1556
0ff92c67 1557 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1558 removed.

ca78941c 1570 Bug fixed:
1571 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1572 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1573 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1574
c9ec25f8 1575 Documentation:
1576 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 1577 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1578
955d6da6 1579 Deprecations:
1580 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1581 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1582 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
1583

1585
1d3a0700 1586 Documentation:
1587 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1588 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1589 MyApp::View::HTML).
1590
e1d59dc4 1591 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1592 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1593 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1594 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1595 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1596 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1597 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1598 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1599 argv key in the options hash.
1600 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1601 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1602 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1603 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1604 versions >= 0.93_01

1609 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1610 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1611 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1612 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1613 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 1617 Bug fixes:
e66329da 1618
b42b9094 1619 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
1620 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1621
1622 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1623
82701bda 1624 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1625 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1626 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1627 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1628 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1629 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1630 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1631 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1632 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1633 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1634 URI.
754e86c6 1635 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1636
c96cdcef 1637 New features:
e66329da 1638
c96cdcef 1639 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1640 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1641 less packed with information of no use.
1642
30079544 1643 Documentation:
e66329da 1644
30079544 1645 - Fix Pod nits (RT#52370)
1646
0ab4f753 16475.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 1648 Bug fixes:
1649 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1650 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1651 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1652 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1653
1654 Documentation:
1655 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.
5a7d7e5c 1656 - Fix reversal of SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO in previously correct nginx
1657 FastCGI documentation introduced in _02.

ef546d1e 16595.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1660 Bug fixes:
1661 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1662 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1663 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1664 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1665 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1666 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1667 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1668 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1669 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1670 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1671 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1672 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1673 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1674 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1675 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1676
2b3bb280 1677 Refactoring / cleanups:
1678 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
1679 (and then skipped) normally.
1680
ee24f3a8 1681 Documentation:
1682 - Fix Pod nits in Catalyst::Response (RT#51818)

4fac276e 16845.80014_01 2009-11-22 20:01:23
c4efaa54 1685
1686 Bug fixes:
1687 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1688 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1689 on the old behaviour.
1690
1691 Refactoring / cleanups:
1692 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1693 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1694
568e11a2 16955.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1696
9f16fdf2 1697 Bug fixes:
1698 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1699 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1700 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1701 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1702 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1703 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1704 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1705 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1706 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1707 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1708 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1709 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1710 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1711 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1712 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1713 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1714 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1715 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1716 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1717
d71da6fe 1718 Documentation:
1719 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1720 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1721 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1722 deprecated and causes warnings).
1723 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1724 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1725 in the correct order.
1726 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1727 context.
08a2c908 1728 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1729 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1730 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1731
ab86b480 1732 New features:
1733 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1734 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1735 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1736 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1737 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1738 distributions
10d77181 1739 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1740 exception classes need to implement.
1741 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1742 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1743 use it.
9f16fdf2 1744
647a3de1 1745 Refactoring / cleanups:
1746 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1747 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1748 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1749 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1750 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1751 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1752 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.
647a3de1 1753
1be0c4f8 17545.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1755
85fc6206 1756 Bug fixes:
1757 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1758 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1759 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1760 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1761 method.
1762 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1763 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1764 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1765
1766 Documentation:
85fc6206 1767 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1768 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1769 warnings.
297ff4ce 1770
1771 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1772 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1773 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1774 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1775 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1776 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1781 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1782 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1783 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1784 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1785 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1786 is returned to 'actions'.
1787 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1788 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1789
1790 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1791 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1792 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1793
1794 Tests:
1795 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1796 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1797 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.
1798
a61a96b3 17995.80011 2009-08-23 13:48:15
1800
9d59dde8 1801 Bug fixes:
1802 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1803 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1804 installed in @INC.
1805
f72168b7 18065.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 1807
1808 Bug fixes:
1809 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1810 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1811 than the default chunksize of 64k again.
1812
1b290713 18135.80009 2009-08-21 22:21:08
1814
e7e4c469 1815 Bug fixes:
1816 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1817 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1818 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1819
455b342e 18205.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1821
4ffa3785 1822 Bug fixes:
1823 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1824 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1825 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1826 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1827 tests.
2f6049f2 1828 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1829 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1830 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1831 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1832 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1833 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1834 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1835 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1836 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1837 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1838 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1839 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1840 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1841
371c6f1a 1842 Refactoring / cleanups:
1843 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1844 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1845 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1846 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1847 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1848 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1849 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1850
1851 New features:
d05e45ce 1852 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1853 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1854 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1855 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1856 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1857 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1858 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1859 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1860 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1861 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1862 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1863 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1864 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1865 the request.
371c6f1a 1866
1fe85999 1867 Documentation:
1868 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1869 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1870 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1871 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1f851263 1876 Bug fixes:
1877 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1878 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1879 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1880 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1881 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1882 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1883 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1884 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1885 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1886 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1887 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1888
a375a206 1889 New features:
1890 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1891 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1892 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1893 URI.

3c9b6867 1897 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1898 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1899 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1900 applications.
655dfc2a 1901 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1902 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1903 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1904 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1905 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1906 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1907 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1908 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1909 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1910 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1911 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1912 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1913 - Action methods named default and index fixed.

1919 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1920 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1921 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1922
371c6f1a 1923 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1924 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1925 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1926 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1927 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1928 error message.
1929 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1930 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1931 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1932 Fixes RT#47366
1933 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1934 again in Catalyst::Test

545e1e3a 1951 loading
f66edc15 1952 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1953 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1954 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1955 later on
dd97c1ac 1956 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1957 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)
1958 Bug reported here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/931653/catalyst-action-that-matches-a-single-file-in-the-root-directory/933181#933181

1964 (with attributes) can be used in / composed from Moose roles.
fd4d9ff7 1965 - Allow the generation of cookies with the HTTPOnly flag set
1966 in Catalyst::Engine (kmx)
8026359e 1967
92435154 19685.80004 2009-05-18 17:03:23
4373973a 1969 - Rename the actions attribute in Catalyst::Controller to
de144724 1970 _controller_actions to avoid name clashes with application
1971 controller naming. (random)
7ba9f98c 1972 - Test for using Moose in components which have a non-Moose base class
545e1e3a 1973 Fixed by 349cda in Moose 0.78

545e1e3a 1987 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1988 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1989 to report 'Unknown Error'

cf37d21a 2009 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 2010 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 2011 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 2012 disabling functionality from base controllers.

b8123bba 20285.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 2029 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 2030 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 2031 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 2032 configuration in your application.
2033 - Tests for this
05d79b22 2034 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
2035 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

2073 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
2074 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

2114 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 2115 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action

545e1e3a 2117 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 2118 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
2119 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
4373973a 2120 subroutine attributes for action declarations with an alternate
545e1e3a 2121 syntax.
e7924bb5 2122 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
2123 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.
2124 This is more correct, and avoids metaclass incompatibility in complex

2334 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2335 throw warnings for two reasons:
2336 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
2337 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
