b0ff1be8 35.90094 - 2015-07-24
4 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
5 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
6 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
7 reflect this change.
8
80ba671f 95.90093 - 2015-05-29
10 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
11 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
12
5af5f973 135.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 14 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
15 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 16 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
17 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
18 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
19 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 20
215.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 22 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
23 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
24 even though they were actually created).
25
7dac038c 265.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 27 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
28 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
29 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
30 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
31 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
32
630ad67c 335.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 34 - Added swanky github badges.
35 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 36 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
37 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
38 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
39 retrieved.
40
718a1619 415.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 42 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
43 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 44 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
45 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
46 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 47
1592e3ff 485.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 49 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
50 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
51 test fail.
52 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
53 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
54 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
55 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
56 and imported types.
d9f0a350 57 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
58 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
59 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 60 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
61 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
62 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
63 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
64 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 65 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
66 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
67 component.
ec4d7259 68 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
69 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
70 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
71 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
72 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 73 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
74 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 75 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
76 they are combined.
3e560748 77 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
78 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
79 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
80 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
81 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
82 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 83 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
84 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
85 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 86 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
87 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 88 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 89 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 90 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
91 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
92 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 93
945.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 95 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 96 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 97 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
98 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 99 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
100 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 101 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
102 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 103 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 104 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 105
9f3e69ee 1065.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 107 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
108 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
109 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
110 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
111 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
112 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
113 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 114 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
115 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 116 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
117 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
118 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 119
8479713c 1205.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 121 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
122 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 123 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 124 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 125 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 126 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 127 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 128 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 129 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
130 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
131 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
132 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
133 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 134
1355.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 136 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 137 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 138 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
139 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
140 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
141 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 142
7131401a 1435.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 144 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
145 to prevent it happening again.
146
7131401a 1475.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 148 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
149 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
150 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
151 test case to prevent regressions.
152
7131401a 1535.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 154 - Minor documentation corrections
155 - Make the '79 development series stable
156
d2000928 1575.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
158 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
159 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 160 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 161 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 162
1635.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 164 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
165 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
166 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 167 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
168 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
169 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 170
b274486c 1715.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 172 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 173 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
174 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
175 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
176 note posted a few months ago.
177 - Added my name to the contributors list
178
6dcc5307 1795.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
180 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 181 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
182 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
183 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
184 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
185 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
186 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
187 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
188 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
189 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
190 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
191 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 192
c017b11b 1935.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 194 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
195 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
196 global variable.
197 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 198 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
199 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
200 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
201 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
202 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 203 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 204 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 205 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 206 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
207 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 208
501605db 2095.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
210 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
211 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
212
bd4b086b 2135.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
214 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
215 changes.
216
2175.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 218 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
219 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 220 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 221 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 222 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 223 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
224 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 225 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
226 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
227 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 228 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 229 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
230 correct if incorrect :)
231 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
232 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 233 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 234 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 235 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
236 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 237 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 238 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
239 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
240 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 241 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 242 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 243 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
244 you want to use.
342d2169 245 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
246 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
247 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
248 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
249 request uses.
460bb45b 250
a24232f9 2515.90079 - 2015-01-02
252 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
253 rt #101243)
254 - updated year in copyright notices
255
b94f8e72 2565.90078 - 2014-12-30
257 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 258 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 259 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
260 trouble. (davewood++);
261 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
262 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
263 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
264
ee2c12fd 2655.90077 - 2014-11-18
266 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
267 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
268 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
269 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
270 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
271
9c86666a 2725.90076 - 2014-11-13
273 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
274 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
275 HTTP Exception middleware.
276
0810283f 2775.90075 - 2014-10-06
278 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
279 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
280 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
281 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
282 you really need to review this exploit.
283
c027f9c4 2845.90074 - 2014-10-01
285 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
286
2be363b7 2875.90073 - 2014-09-23
288 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
289 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
290 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 291 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
292 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 293 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 294
4f96d61c 2955.90072 - 2014-09-15
296 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
297 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
298 so you can go to hunt it out.
299
d5765d73 3005.90071 - 2014-08-10
301 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
302 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
303 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
304 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
305 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 306 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 307
b96bd9f1 3085.90070 - 2014-08-07
309 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
310
1893c194 3115.90069_004
312 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
313 certain tests. No other changes.
314
310c2a39 3155.90069_003
316 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 317 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
318 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
319 a bit.
320 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
321 anything new.
eae29f6e 322 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
323 type response.
324 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
325 improvements.
9c38cb50 326
91789f94 3275.90069_002
3e6ee020 328 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
329 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
330 questions or problems!
331 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
332 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
333 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
334 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 335 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
336 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
337 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 338 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
339 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
340
1b526dcc 3415.90069_001
41bf18c5 342 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
343 - documentation and test fixes
344
8f3c0676 3455.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 346 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
347 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
348 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
349 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 350 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 351 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 352 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 353
13adef05 3545.90064 - 2014-05-05
355 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
356 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
357
3585.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 359 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
360 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
361 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
362 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 363 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
364 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 365 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
366 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
367 configuration.
368 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 369s
3705.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 371 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
372 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
373
c8ad8cbc 3745.90061 - 2014-03-10
375 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
376 introduced by a change in December.
377
de9bcba0 3785.90060 - 2014-02-07
379 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
380
78acc1f7 381
26b42801 3825.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 383 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 384 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 385 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 386 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
387 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 388
b8534a44 3895.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 390 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
391 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 3925.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 393 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
394 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
395 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
396 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
397 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 398 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 399 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 400 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
401 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 402 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
403 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
404 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 405
7af15a33 4065.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 407 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 408 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
409 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 410 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
411 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
412 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 413
97e0c7c5 4145.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 415 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
416 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
417 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
418 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
419 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
420 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
421 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
422 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 423 to work much better.
424 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
425 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
426 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
427 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
428 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
429 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
430 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
431 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 432 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
433 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 434
78acc1f7 4355.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
436 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
437 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
438 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
439 will be broken.
440
5bb2a5b3 4415.90053 - 2013-12-21
442 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
443 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
444 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
445 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
446 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
447 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 448
7d01797b 4495.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 450
02352a28 451 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
452 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 453 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
454 does not exist.
455 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 456 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 457 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
458
459 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
460 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
461 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
462 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
463
3d3ea779 464 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
465 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 466 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 467 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
468 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 469
707988f8 4705.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 471 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 472 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
473
31bd6aec 4745.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 475 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
476 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
477 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 478
55119d7b 479 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
480 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
481 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
482
483 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
484 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
485 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
486 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 487
a61b6983 4885.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
489 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 490 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 491
4925.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 493 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
494 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
495 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
496 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
497 HTML forms.
ba1734df 498 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
499 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
500 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 501 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
502 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
503 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
504 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
505 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 506
fd5fb3a8 5075.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 508 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 509 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 510 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 511 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
512 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
513 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
514 those keys already exist). Keys added:
515 - plack.request.query
516 - plack.request.body
517 - plack.request.merged
518 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 519 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 520 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
521 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
522 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
523 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
524 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
525 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
526 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 527 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
528 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
529 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 530 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
531 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
532 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
533 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
534 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
535 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 536 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
537 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 538
b3070177 5395.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
540 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 541 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 542 updates, including:
543 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
544 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
545 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
546 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
547 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
548 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
549 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
550 a development setup (ether++)
551
e2aa4a21 5525.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
553 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
554 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
555 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
556 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 557 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
558 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
559 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 560
522134af 5615.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
562 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
563 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
564 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
565 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 566
01733d0f 5675.90042 - 2013-06-14
568 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
569 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 570 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
571 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
572 plugin
573 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
574 ask for encoding
575 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
576 caused trouble.
01733d0f 577
c287088e 5785.90041 - 2013-06-14
579 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
580 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
581 this fixes all of them.
582 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
583 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
584 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
585 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
586 number decimals
587 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
588
c8d9e6f4 5895.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 590 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
591 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
592 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 593 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 594 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 595 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 596 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
597 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 598 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
599 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 600 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 601 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
602 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
603 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
604 termination).
8275d3b9 605 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
606 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
607 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
608 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
609 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
610 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 611 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
612 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
613 for more.
d18964f7 614 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 615
f653d2c8 6165.90030 - 2013-04-12
617 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
618 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
619 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 620 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
621 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
622 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
623 resolve manually.
18df061a 624 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
625 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
626 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 627 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 628 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 629 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 630
6315.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 632 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
633 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
634 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
635 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
636 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
637 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 638 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
639 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
640 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
641 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 642 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 643 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 644 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 645 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 646
dbacbce4 6475.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 648 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
649 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
650 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 651 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 652
02f4beca 6535.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
654 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
655 HTTP::Message.
656
d6ae5104 6575.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 658 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 659
660 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
661 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
662
663 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
664
665 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
666 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
667
668 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
669
0df490ef 670 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
671 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
672 of request or response classes.
673
f0580bff 6745.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 675 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
676 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 677 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 678 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 679 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 680 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
681 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
682 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
683 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
684
cfdd890d 6855.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 686 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 687 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
688 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
689 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 690
f444811b 6915.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
692
258733f1 693 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
694 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
695
aa3897db 6965.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
697
698 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
699 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
700 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
701 of Catalyst.
702
7035.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
704
eff60019 705 New features:
706 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
707
a7d2a530 708 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 709 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
710 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
711
40c06ae4 712 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
713 are supplied.
714
715 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
716 top level config.
a7d2a530 717
b334a4de 718 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
719
720 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
721
3239be86 7225.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
723
57746b80 724 Distribution META.yml changes:
725 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
726 mis-parses from the documentation.
727 - x_authority key added.
728
9a649d25 729 Bug fixes:
730 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
731 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
732
1e089329 733 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
734 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
735 is less than helpful.
736
38e43e65 737 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
738 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
739 in bleadperl. RT#76437
740
2037f03f 741 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 742 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
743
d8ccdd9d 744 Documentation:
745 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
746 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
747 directly.
748 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 749 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 750 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 751
2114ee9f 7525.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
753
f7ac80ef 754 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 755 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
756 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
757 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
758 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
759 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
760 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
761 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 762 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
763 applications.
df894348 764 - --background option for the server script now only closes
765 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
766 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 767 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
768 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 769 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
770 callback.

0c17b66d 774 Bug fixes:
775 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
776 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
777 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
778 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 782 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 783 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
784 refactoring.
785
0607947f 786 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 787 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 788 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
789 included when not running from a checkout.
790
80267996 791 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
792
8529a7ea 793 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 794 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
795 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.

800
d0cfd993 801 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 802 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 803 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
804 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
805
806 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
807 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
808 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
809
810 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 811 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 812 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
813 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
814
815 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
816
0aba7d92 817 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 818 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
819 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
820 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
821 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
822 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
823
d0cfd993 824 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 825 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 826 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
827 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
828
e6bcfe8e 829 Tests:
3d2c4feb 830 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 831
e1e5366d 832 Documentation:
833 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
834 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
835 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
836
e6bcfe8e 837 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
838 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
839 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
840
00341d81 8415.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
842
0d7bf3a9 843 New features:
844 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
845 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
846 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
847 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
848 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
849
1ce9c7f6 850 Bug fixes:
851 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 852 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
853 over that.
a465926f 854 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
855 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
856 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 857
4c21ba3b 8585.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
859
27b0a436 860 New features:
861 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
862 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
863 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
864 get them passed through to the application.
865
4373973a 866 Documentation:
d685f38e 867 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
868 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
869 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
870 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
871
f4de8c99 872 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 873 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
874 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
875 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 876 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 877 a value.
878 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
879 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
880 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 881
c7250231 882 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
883 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
884
849b1b24 8855.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
886
ab6c6d3d 887 New features:
888
889 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
890 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
891 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
892 whereas before you had to say:
893 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
894 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
895 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
896 the two.
897
cf49ace4 898 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
899 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
900 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
901 scripts in the application.
902 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
903 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
904 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
905 otherwise).
906
ab6c6d3d 907 Documentation:
908
909 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
910 to avoid confusion
4373973a 911 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 912 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
913 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
914 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
915 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
916 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
917 and provide an alternative.

65420d46 921 Bug fixes:
922
923 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
924 MyApp->engine_class.
925
a253d527 9265.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 927 Bug fixes:
928
4373973a 929 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 930
e95b2b49 931 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
932 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
933 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
934 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
935 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
936 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
937
fabe0bc6 938 Enhancements:
939
940 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
941 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
942
5cb939e8 943 Backward compatibility fixes:
944
945 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 946 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 947
14eb7697 948 Documentation fixes:
949
950 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
951 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 952
d536010b 953 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 954
824a5eb0 955 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
956
836a51a2 9575.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 958 Backward compatibility fixes:
959
960 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
961 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
962 circumstances.
963 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
964
c47cd2ce 965 Documentation fixes:
966
967 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
968 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
969 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

2f3f09d4 988 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 989
2f3f09d4 990 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
991 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
992 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 993
2f3f09d4 994 Documentation:
72697c1d 995
2f3f09d4 996 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
997 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 998
2f3f09d4 999 Changes:
cb1e348b 1000
2f3f09d4 1001 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1002 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1003 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1004
cfb5d52a 10055.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 1006
1007 Backward compatibility fixes:
1008
1009 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1010 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1011
1012 Bug fixes:
1013
ab4df9f8 1014 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1015 been made immutable.
1016
0d47e040 1017 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1018 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1019 example) Coro is loaded.
1020
1021 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1022 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1023
1024 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1025 using MooseX::Deamonize
1026
1027 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1028 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1029 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1030 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1031 deployed in these environments.
1032
c79bd3b0 1033 Enhancements:
1034
1035 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1036 the remote request.
0d47e040 1037
1038 Documentation:
1039 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1040 file for your application.
1041
4373973a 1042 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1043 engines clarified.
1044
1045 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1046 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1047 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
1048
b40baecd 10495.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
1050
f899107d 1051 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1052 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1053 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1054
1055 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1056
e3557c86 1057 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1058 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1059
1060 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1061 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1062
1063 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1064 was not breaking out correctly
1065
f899107d 1066 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1067 to also work in the $c->component method.
1068
5ff374b5 1069 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1070 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1071 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1072 mode.
2e4a8275 1073 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1074
52d65afe 1075 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1076
1077 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1078
1079 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1080 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1081 names.
1082
1083 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.

1f440f55 10855.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1086
1087 Bug fixes:
1088 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1089 not being installed.
1090
1091 Refactoring:
1092 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1093 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1094 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
1095
aceee8b5 10965.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
1097
2cd94c07 1098 Bug fixes:
1099 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1100
1101 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1102 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1103 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1104
2cd94c07 1105 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1106
2cd94c07 1107 Known problems:
1108 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1109 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1110 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1111 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1112
2cd94c07 1113 Documentation:
1114 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1115 of Catalyst has been much improved.

07608083 11175.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1118
1119 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1120 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1121 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1122 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1123 returning true.
1124 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1125
0fd00e7b 1126 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1127 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1128 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1129
9bf423ee 1130 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1131 in Catalyst::execute
1132
1133 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1134 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1135 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1136
1137 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1138 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1139 (e.g. /account/*)
1140
1141 New features:
1142 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1143 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1144
1145 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1146 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1147 developers without changing their application code.
1148
45cab07f 11495.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1150
718e6314 1151 Bug fixes:
1152 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1153 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1154 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1155 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1156 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1157
6ca73485 1158 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1159 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1160
7258c943 11615.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1162
1163 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1164
1165 Removed features:
1166
1167 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1168 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1169 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1170 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1171 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1172 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1173 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1174
1175 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1176 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1177 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1178 class, please tell us *now*.
1179
94edbd2c 11805.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1181
8865ee12 1182 New features:
1183 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1184 title.
2af2a5bf 1185 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1186 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1187 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1188 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1189 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1190 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1191
c046f519 1192 Bug fixes:
1193 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1194 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1195 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1196 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1197 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1198 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1199 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1200 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1201 failing case.
efc2aac0 1202 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1203 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1204 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1205 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1206 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1207 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1208 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1209 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1210
fa325a7d 1211 Documentation:
1212 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1213 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1214
47990d3f 12155.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1216
1217 New features:
4d723d12 1218 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1219 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1220 confused.
1221
47990d3f 1222 Warning fixes:
1223 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1224 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.

808db1d6 1228 Bug fixes:
1229 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1230
7f891e1e 1231 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1232 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1233

1242
2afd1ea3 1243 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1244 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1245 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1246 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1247
1248 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1249 application
1250
1251 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1252
2afd1ea3 1253 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1254 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1255 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1256 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1257 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1258
1f94dc3a 1259 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1260 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1261
9c64b93a 1262 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1263 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1264 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1265
ab83907b 1266 Refactoring:
1267 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1268 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components

1277
13c565fe 1278 New features:
1279 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1280 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1281 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1282 the default action creation.
1283
f5325631 1284 Bug fixes:
1285 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1286 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1287 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1288 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1289 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1290 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application

1295 point.
f8a54681 1296 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1297 values.

7aba3b2d 13005.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1301
1302 Bug fixes:
1303 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1304 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1305 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1306 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1307 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1308
1309 New features:
1310 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1311 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1312
1313 Documentation:
1314 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1315 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1316 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1317 Catalyst::Engine::CGI

671123ba 1322 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1323 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1324 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1325 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1326 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1327 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1328 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1329 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1330
0319ec68 1331 New features:
1332 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1333 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1334 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1335 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1336 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1337 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1338 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1339 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1340
8fa9321c 1341 Documentation:
1342 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1343 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1344
1f52c1d2 1345 Cleanups:
1346 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1347 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1348 $Catalyst::VERSION.

1351
025d09f9 1352 New features:
1353 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1354 the content type and content length if available.
1355
13311c16 1356 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1357 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1358 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1359 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1360 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1361 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1362 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1363 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1364 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1365 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1366 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1367 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1368 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1369 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1370
13e46699 1371 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1372 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1373 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1374 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1375 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).

52e23ad4 1379 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1380 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1381 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1382
1bebcac6 13835.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18

f0bb41af 13895.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1390
2689f8a4 1391 Bug fixed:
1392 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1393 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1394 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1395 which should not be encoded.
1396 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1397 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1398
1399 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1400 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1401 any set of args/captures.
1402
f54950f5 1403 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1404 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1405
0ff92c67 1406 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1407 removed.
c2f4efce 1408
1409 Documentation:

ca78941c 1419 Bug fixed:
1420 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1421 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1422 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1423
c9ec25f8 1424 Documentation:

c8083f4e 1426 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1427
955d6da6 1428 Deprecations:
1429 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1430 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1431 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

1d3a0700 1435 Documentation:
1436 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1437 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1438 MyApp::View::HTML).
1439
e1d59dc4 1440 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1441 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1442 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1443 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1444 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1445 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1446 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1447 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1448 argv key in the options hash.
1449 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1450 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1451 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1452 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1453 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 1454 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
1455 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 1456
3f07296e 1457 Cleanups:
1458 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1459 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1460 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1461 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1462 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

e66329da 1470
1471 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1472
82701bda 1473 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1474 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1475 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1476 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1477 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1478 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1479 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1480 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1481 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1482 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1483 URI.
754e86c6 1484 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1485
c96cdcef 1486 New features:
e66329da 1487
c96cdcef 1488 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1489 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1490 less packed with information of no use.

ea72fece 1497 Bug fixes:
1498 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1499 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1500 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1501 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1502
1503 Documentation:
1504 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ef546d1e 15085.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1509 Bug fixes:
1510 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1511 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1512 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1513 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1514 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1515 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1516 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1517 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1518 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1519 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1520 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1521 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1522 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1523 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1524 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1525
2b3bb280 1526 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 1534
1535 Bug fixes:
1536 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1537 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1538 on the old behaviour.
1539
1540 Refactoring / cleanups:
1541 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1542 are deprecated and now issue warnings.

568e11a2 15445.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1545
9f16fdf2 1546 Bug fixes:
1547 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1548 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1549 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1550 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1551 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1552 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1553 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1554 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1555 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1556 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1557 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1558 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1559 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1560 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1561 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1562 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1563 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1564 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1565 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1566
d71da6fe 1567 Documentation:
1568 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1569 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1570 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1571 deprecated and causes warnings).
1572 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1573 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1574 in the correct order.
1575 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1576 context.
08a2c908 1577 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1578 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1579 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1580
ab86b480 1581 New features:
1582 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1583 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1584 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1585 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1586 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1587 distributions
10d77181 1588 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1589 exception classes need to implement.
1590 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1591 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1592 use it.
9f16fdf2 1593
647a3de1 1594 Refactoring / cleanups:
1595 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1596 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1597 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1598 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1599 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1600 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1601 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1605 Bug fixes:
1606 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1607 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1608 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1609 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1610 method.
1611 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1612 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1613 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1614
1615 Documentation:
85fc6206 1616 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.

1618 warnings.
297ff4ce 1619
1620 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1621 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1622 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1623 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1624 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1625 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1630 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1631 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1632 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1633 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1634 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1635 is returned to 'actions'.
1636 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1637 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1638
1639 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1640 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1641 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1642
1643 Tests:
1644 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1645 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1646 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1649
9d59dde8 1650 Bug fixes:
1651 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1652 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1653 installed in @INC.

9d3a7a1f 1656
1657 Bug fixes:
1658 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1659 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1660 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

1663
e7e4c469 1664 Bug fixes:
1665 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1666 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1667 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

1670
4ffa3785 1671 Bug fixes:
1672 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1673 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1674 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1675 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1676 tests.
2f6049f2 1677 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1678 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1679 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1680 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1681 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1682 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1683 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1684 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1685 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1686 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1687 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1688 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1689 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1690
371c6f1a 1691 Refactoring / cleanups:
1692 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1693 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1694 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1695 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1696 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1697 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1698 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1699
1700 New features:
d05e45ce 1701 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1702 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1703 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1704 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1705 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1706 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1707 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1708 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1709 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1710 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1711 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1712 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1713 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1714 the request.
371c6f1a 1715
1fe85999 1716 Documentation:
1717 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1718 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1719 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1720 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1f851263 1725 Bug fixes:
1726 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1727 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1728 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1729 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1730 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1731 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1732 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1733 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1734 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1735 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1736 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1737
a375a206 1738 New features:
1739 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1740 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1741 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1742 URI.

3c9b6867 1746 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1747 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1748 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1749 applications.
655dfc2a 1750 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1751 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1752 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1753 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1754 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1755 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1756 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1757 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1758 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1759 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1760 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1761 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1762 - Action methods named default and index fixed.
3c9b6867 1763

655dfc2a 1765 - Use ~ as prefix for plugins or action classes which are located in
1766 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1767 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1768 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1769 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1770 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1771
371c6f1a 1772 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1773 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1774 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1775 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1776 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1777 error message.
1778 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1779 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1780 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1781 Fixes RT#47366
1782 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1783 again in Catalyst::Test

1803 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1804 later on
dd97c1ac 1805 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1806 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)
1807 Bug reported here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/931653/catalyst-action-that-matches-a-single-file-in-the-root-directory/933181#933181

1813 (with attributes) can be used in / composed from Moose roles.
fd4d9ff7 1814 - Allow the generation of cookies with the HTTPOnly flag set
1815 in Catalyst::Engine (kmx)

545e1e3a 1832 environment
1833 - Require Moose 0.78 to fix metaclass incompatibility issues
c98492ae 1834 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1835 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1836 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1837 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1838 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1839 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1840 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1841 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1842 parse_on_demand is on

e262f38e 1855 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1856 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1857 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1858 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1859 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1860 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1861 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1862 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1863 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 1871 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1872 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1873 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1874 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1875 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 1876
b8123bba 18775.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1878 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 1879 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 1880 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1881 configuration in your application.
1882 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1883 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1884 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

545e1e3a 1917 tries to chain to itself
13c6b4cc 1918 - Tests for this
02298d3a 1919 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 1920 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 1921 - Tests for this (radek)
1922 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1923 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1924 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 1925 - Tests for this (radek)
f2e13bbd 1926 - Added Catalyst::Test::ctx_request to be able to inspect
1927 the context object after a request is made (Jos Boumans)

f0ee3380 1929 - Change the warning when you have conflicting components to
545e1e3a 1930 present a list
19a24dbb 1931 - Move NEXT use and testing deprecated features out to its own
1932 test application so that the main TestApp isn't polluted with
545e1e3a 1933 spurious warnings
1934 - Add a warning for the old ::[MVC]:: style naming scheme
1935 - Test for this
2d9f9c8d 1936 - Kill Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT warnings for the Catalyst:: namespace
545e1e3a 1937 in production versions

545e1e3a 1939 the correct metaclass
4d0270d3 1940 - Make MyApp.pm restartable by unsetting setup_finished in
545e1e3a 1941 the restarter process
65b708a6 1942 - Non-naive implementation of making mutable on restart using
545e1e3a 1943 B::Hooks::OP::Check::StashChange if installed
1944 - Tests for this
65b708a6 1945 - Naive implementation of making all components mutable in the
1946 forked restart watcher process so native Moose apps using
545e1e3a 1947 immutable restart correctly.
1948 - Tests for this
107d0ba0 1949 - Bump Moose dependency to 0.70 so that we avoid nasty surprises
545e1e3a 1950 with is_class_loaded and perl 5.80 when you Moosify MyApp.pm
8f58057d 1951 - Clarify that request arguments aren't unescaped automatically

545e1e3a 1961 changes. Also depend on the latest Class::MOP.
1962 - Add $c->uri_for_action method.
1963 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 1964 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
1965 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 1966 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1967 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1968 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
4373973a 1969 subroutine attributes for action declarations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1970 syntax.
e7924bb5 1971 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
1972 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.

2183 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2184 throw warnings for two reasons:

2186 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2187 instead
df3956bf 2188 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2189 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2190 method with a regex as the argument
