163b3de6 35.90104 - 2016-04-04
4 - Merged pull request #131, fix for noisy debug logs when used type constraints
5 in your actions. Additional changes to the developer debug screen output to
6 improve reporting details.
7 - Merged pull request #133, fix for case when a file upload filename contains
8 wide characters which caused the filename to not appear in the uploads hash.

ed60d917 105.90103 - 2015-11-12
4c71cf1b 11 - More documentation fixes (thanks to the debian maintainers and melmothx++)
12 - Fixed the way we parse subroutine attribute values to fix a regression
13 introduced in 5.90102. This is a recommended upgrade (tsibley++, mst++)
14 - Fixed regression around auto actions that escape by throwing an exception
15 which was introduced in the last release.
ed906c97 16 - Bumped namespace::autoclean dep to latest since tests require -except
4c71cf1b 17
b8ef930c 185.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 19 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
20 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
21 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 22 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 23 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
24 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 25 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e459bd03 26 - $c->state is now preserved over actions in a chain, and across begin,
27 auto, ->forward and ->detach.
e43b00f9 28
d2995a76 295.90101 - 2015-09-04
30 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
31 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
32
5e7e6b27 335.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 34 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
35 with type constraints.
36 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 37 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 38 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
39 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 40 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 41 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 42
a1dba4cf 435.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 44 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
45 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
46 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 47 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
48 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
49 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
50 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 51
ed5a562b 525.90096 - 2015-07-27
53 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
54 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
55 to define behavior better.
56
3f955f48 575.90095 - 2015-07-27
58 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
59 on CPAN testers.
60 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
61 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
62 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
63 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 64
b0ff1be8 655.90094 - 2015-07-24
66 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
67 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
68 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 69 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
70 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 71 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
72 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 73 - Merged Pull Requests:

b0ff1be8 80
80ba671f 815.90093 - 2015-05-29
82 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
83 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
84
5af5f973 855.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 86 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
87 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 88 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
89 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
90 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
91 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 92
935.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 94 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
95 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
96 even though they were actually created).
97
7dac038c 985.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 99 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
100 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
101 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
102 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
103 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
104
630ad67c 1055.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 106 - Added swanky github badges.
107 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 108 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
109 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
110 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
111 retrieved.
112
718a1619 1135.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 114 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
115 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 116 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
117 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
118 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 119
1592e3ff 1205.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 121 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
122 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
123 test fail.
124 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
125 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
126 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
127 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
128 and imported types.
d9f0a350 129 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
130 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
131 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 132 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
133 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
134 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
135 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
136 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 137 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
138 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
139 component.
ec4d7259 140 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
141 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
142 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
143 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
144 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 145 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
146 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 147 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
148 they are combined.
3e560748 149 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
150 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
151 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
152 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
153 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
154 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 155 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
156 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
157 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 158 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
159 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 160 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 161 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 162 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
163 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
164 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 165
1665.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 167 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 168 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 169 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
170 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 171 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
172 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 173 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
174 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 175 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 176 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 177
9f3e69ee 1785.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 179 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
180 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
181 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
182 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
183 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
184 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
185 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 186 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
187 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 188 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
189 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
190 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 191
8479713c 1925.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 193 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
194 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 195 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 196 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 197 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 198 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 199 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 200 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 201 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
202 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
203 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
204 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
205 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 206
2075.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 208 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 209 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 210 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
211 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
212 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
213 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 214
7131401a 2155.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 216 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
217 to prevent it happening again.
218
7131401a 2195.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 220 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
221 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
222 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
223 test case to prevent regressions.
224
7131401a 2255.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 226 - Minor documentation corrections
227 - Make the '79 development series stable
228
d2000928 2295.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
230 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
231 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 232 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 233 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 234
2355.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 236 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
237 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
238 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 239 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
240 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
241 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 242
b274486c 2435.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 244 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 245 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
246 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
247 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
248 note posted a few months ago.
249 - Added my name to the contributors list
250
6dcc5307 2515.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
252 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 253 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
254 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
255 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
256 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
257 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
258 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
259 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
260 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
261 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
262 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
263 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 264
c017b11b 2655.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 266 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
267 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
268 global variable.
269 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 270 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
271 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
272 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
273 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
274 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 275 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 276 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 277 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 278 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
279 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 280
501605db 2815.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
282 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
283 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
284
bd4b086b 2855.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
286 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
287 changes.
288
2895.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 290 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
291 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 292 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 293 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 294 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 295 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
296 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 297 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
298 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
299 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 300 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 301 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
302 correct if incorrect :)
303 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
304 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 305 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 306 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 307 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
308 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 309 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 310 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
311 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
312 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 313 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 314 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 315 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
316 you want to use.
342d2169 317 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
318 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
319 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
320 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
321 request uses.
460bb45b 322
a24232f9 3235.90079 - 2015-01-02
324 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
325 rt #101243)
326 - updated year in copyright notices
327
b94f8e72 3285.90078 - 2014-12-30
329 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 330 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 331 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
332 trouble. (davewood++);
333 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
334 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
335 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
336
ee2c12fd 3375.90077 - 2014-11-18
338 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
339 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
340 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
341 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
342 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
343
9c86666a 3445.90076 - 2014-11-13
345 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
346 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
347 HTTP Exception middleware.
348
0810283f 3495.90075 - 2014-10-06
350 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
351 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
352 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
353 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
354 you really need to review this exploit.
355
c027f9c4 3565.90074 - 2014-10-01
357 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
358
2be363b7 3595.90073 - 2014-09-23
360 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
361 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
362 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 363 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
364 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 365 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 366
4f96d61c 3675.90072 - 2014-09-15
368 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
369 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
370 so you can go to hunt it out.
371
d5765d73 3725.90071 - 2014-08-10
373 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
374 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
375 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
376 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
377 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 378 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 379
b96bd9f1 3805.90070 - 2014-08-07
381 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
382
1893c194 3835.90069_004
384 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
385 certain tests. No other changes.
386
310c2a39 3875.90069_003
388 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 389 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
390 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
391 a bit.
392 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
393 anything new.
eae29f6e 394 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
395 type response.
396 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
397 improvements.
9c38cb50 398
91789f94 3995.90069_002
3e6ee020 400 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
401 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
402 questions or problems!
403 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
404 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
405 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
406 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 407 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
408 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
409 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 410 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
411 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
412
1b526dcc 4135.90069_001
41bf18c5 414 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
415 - documentation and test fixes
416
8f3c0676 4175.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 418 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
419 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
420 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
421 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 422 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 423 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 424 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 425
13adef05 4265.90064 - 2014-05-05
427 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
428 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
429
4305.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 431 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
432 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
433 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
434 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 435 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
436 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 437 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
438 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
439 configuration.
440 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 441s
4425.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 443 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
444 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
445
c8ad8cbc 4465.90061 - 2014-03-10
447 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
448 introduced by a change in December.
449
de9bcba0 4505.90060 - 2014-02-07
451 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
452
78acc1f7 453
26b42801 4545.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 455 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 456 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 457 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 458 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
459 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 460
b8534a44 4615.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 462 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
463 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 4645.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 465 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
466 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
467 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
468 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
469 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 470 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 471 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 472 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
473 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 474 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
475 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
476 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 477
7af15a33 4785.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 479 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 480 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
481 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 482 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
483 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
484 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 485
97e0c7c5 4865.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 487 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
488 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
489 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
490 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
491 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
492 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
493 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
494 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 495 to work much better.
496 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
497 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
498 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
499 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
500 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
501 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
502 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
503 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 504 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
505 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 506
78acc1f7 5075.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
508 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
509 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
510 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
511 will be broken.
512
5bb2a5b3 5135.90053 - 2013-12-21
514 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
515 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
516 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
517 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
518 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
519 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 520
7d01797b 5215.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 522
02352a28 523 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
524 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 525 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
526 does not exist.
527 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 528 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 529 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
530
531 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
532 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
533 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
534 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
535
3d3ea779 536 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
537 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 538 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 539 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
540 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 541
707988f8 5425.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 543 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 544 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
545
31bd6aec 5465.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 547 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
548 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
549 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 550
55119d7b 551 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
552 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
553 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
554
555 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
556 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
557 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
558 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 559
a61b6983 5605.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
561 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 562 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 563
5645.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 565 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
566 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
567 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
568 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
569 HTML forms.
ba1734df 570 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
571 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
572 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 573 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
574 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
575 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
576 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
577 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 578
fd5fb3a8 5795.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 580 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 581 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 582 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 583 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
584 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
585 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
586 those keys already exist). Keys added:
587 - plack.request.query
588 - plack.request.body
589 - plack.request.merged
590 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 591 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 592 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
593 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
594 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
595 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
596 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
597 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
598 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 599 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
600 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
601 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 602 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
603 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
604 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
605 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
606 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
607 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 608 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
609 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 610
b3070177 6115.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
612 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 613 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 614 updates, including:
615 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
616 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
617 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
618 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
619 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
620 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
621 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
622 a development setup (ether++)
623
e2aa4a21 6245.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
625 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
626 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
627 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
628 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 629 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
630 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
631 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 632
522134af 6335.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
634 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
635 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
636 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
637 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 638
01733d0f 6395.90042 - 2013-06-14
640 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
641 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 642 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
643 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
644 plugin
645 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
646 ask for encoding
647 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
648 caused trouble.
01733d0f 649
c287088e 6505.90041 - 2013-06-14
651 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
652 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
653 this fixes all of them.
654 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
655 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
656 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
657 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
658 number decimals
659 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
660
c8d9e6f4 6615.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 662 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
663 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
664 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 665 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 666 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 667 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 668 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
669 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 670 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
671 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 672 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 673 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
674 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
675 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
676 termination).
8275d3b9 677 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
678 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
679 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
680 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
681 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
682 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 683 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
684 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
685 for more.
d18964f7 686 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 687
f653d2c8 6885.90030 - 2013-04-12
689 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
690 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
691 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 692 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
693 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
694 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
695 resolve manually.
18df061a 696 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
697 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
698 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 699 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 700 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 701 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 702
7035.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 704 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
705 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
706 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
707 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
708 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
709 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 710 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
711 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
712 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
713 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 714 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 715 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 716 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 717 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 718
dbacbce4 7195.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 720 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
721 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
722 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 723 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 724
02f4beca 7255.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
726 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
727 HTTP::Message.
728
d6ae5104 7295.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 730 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 731
732 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
733 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
734
735 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
736
737 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
738 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
739
740 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
741
0df490ef 742 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
743 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
744 of request or response classes.
745
f0580bff 7465.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 747 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
748 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 749 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 750 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 751 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 752 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
753 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
754 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
755 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.

769
770 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
771 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
772 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
773 of Catalyst.

a7d2a530 780 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 781 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
782 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
783
40c06ae4 784 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
785 are supplied.
786
787 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
788 top level config.

57746b80 796 Distribution META.yml changes:
797 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
798 mis-parses from the documentation.
799 - x_authority key added.
800
9a649d25 801 Bug fixes:
802 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
803 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
804
1e089329 805 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
806 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
807 is less than helpful.
808
38e43e65 809 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
810 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
811 in bleadperl. RT#76437
812
2037f03f 813 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 814 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.

d8ccdd9d 816 Documentation:
817 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
818 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
819 directly.

825
f7ac80ef 826 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 827 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
828 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
829 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
830 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
831 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
832 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
833 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 834 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
835 applications.
df894348 836 - --background option for the server script now only closes
837 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
838 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 839 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
840 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 841 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
842 callback.

f7ac80ef 845
0c17b66d 846 Bug fixes:
847 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
848 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
849 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
850 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 854 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 855 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
856 refactoring.
857
0607947f 858 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 859 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 860 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
861 included when not running from a checkout.
862
80267996 863 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
864
8529a7ea 865 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 866 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
867 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 868

af09d56c 8715.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
872
d0cfd993 873 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 874 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 875 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
876 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
877
878 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
879 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
880 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
881
882 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 883 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 884 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
885 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
886
887 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
888
0aba7d92 889 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 890 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
891 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
892 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
893 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
894 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
895
d0cfd993 896 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 897 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 898 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
899 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
900
e6bcfe8e 901 Tests:
3d2c4feb 902 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 903
e1e5366d 904 Documentation:
905 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
906 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
907 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
908
e6bcfe8e 909 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
910 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
911 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
912
00341d81 9135.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
914
0d7bf3a9 915 New features:
916 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
917 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
918 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
919 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
920 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
921
1ce9c7f6 922 Bug fixes:
923 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 924 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
925 over that.
a465926f 926 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
927 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
928 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 929
4c21ba3b 9305.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
931
27b0a436 932 New features:
933 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
934 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
935 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
936 get them passed through to the application.
937
4373973a 938 Documentation:
d685f38e 939 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
940 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
941 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
942 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
943
f4de8c99 944 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 945 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
946 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
947 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 948 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 949 a value.
950 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
951 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
952 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 953
c7250231 954 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
955 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
956
849b1b24 9575.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
958
ab6c6d3d 959 New features:
960
961 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
962 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
963 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
964 whereas before you had to say:
965 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
966 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
967 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
968 the two.
969
cf49ace4 970 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
971 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
972 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
973 scripts in the application.
974 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
975 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
976 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
977 otherwise).
978
ab6c6d3d 979 Documentation:
980
981 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
982 to avoid confusion
4373973a 983 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 984 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
985 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
986 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
987 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
988 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
989 and provide an alternative.

4ec26b6c 9915.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
992
65420d46 993 Bug fixes:
994
995 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
996 MyApp->engine_class.
997
a253d527 9985.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 999 Bug fixes:
1000
4373973a 1001 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 1002
e95b2b49 1003 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
1004 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
1005 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
1006 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
1007 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
1008 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
1009
fabe0bc6 1010 Enhancements:
1011
1012 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
1013 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
1014
5cb939e8 1015 Backward compatibility fixes:
1016
1017 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 1018 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 1019
14eb7697 1020 Documentation fixes:
1021
1022 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
1023 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 1024
d536010b 1025 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 1026
824a5eb0 1027 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
1028
836a51a2 10295.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 1030 Backward compatibility fixes:
1031
1032 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
1033 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
1034 circumstances.
1035 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
1036
c47cd2ce 1037 Documentation fixes:
1038
1039 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
1040 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
1041 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

2f3f09d4 1057
1058 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1059
2f3f09d4 1060 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1061
2f3f09d4 1062 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1063 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1064 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1065
2f3f09d4 1066 Documentation:
72697c1d 1067
2f3f09d4 1068 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1069 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1070
2f3f09d4 1071 Changes:
cb1e348b 1072
2f3f09d4 1073 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1074 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1075 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1076
cfb5d52a 10775.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 1078
1079 Backward compatibility fixes:
1080
1081 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1082 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1083
1084 Bug fixes:
1085
ab4df9f8 1086 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1087 been made immutable.
1088
0d47e040 1089 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1090 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1091 example) Coro is loaded.
1092
1093 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1094 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1095
1096 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1097 using MooseX::Deamonize
1098
1099 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1100 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1101 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1102 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1103 deployed in these environments.
1104
c79bd3b0 1105 Enhancements:
1106
1107 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1108 the remote request.
0d47e040 1109
1110 Documentation:
1111 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1112 file for your application.
1113
4373973a 1114 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1115 engines clarified.
1116
1117 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1118 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1119 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
1120
b40baecd 11215.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
1122
f899107d 1123 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1124 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1125 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1126
1127 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1128
e3557c86 1129 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1130 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1131
1132 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1133 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1134
1135 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1136 was not breaking out correctly
1137
f899107d 1138 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1139 to also work in the $c->component method.
1140
5ff374b5 1141 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1142 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1143 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1144 mode.
2e4a8275 1145 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1146
52d65afe 1147 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1148
1149 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1150
1151 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1152 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1153 names.
1154
1155 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
1156
1f440f55 11575.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1158
1159 Bug fixes:
1160 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1161 not being installed.
1162
1163 Refactoring:
1164 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1165 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1166 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
1167
aceee8b5 11685.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
1169
2cd94c07 1170 Bug fixes:
1171 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1172
1173 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1174 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1175 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1176
2cd94c07 1177 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1178
2cd94c07 1179 Known problems:
1180 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1181 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1182 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1183 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1184
2cd94c07 1185 Documentation:
1186 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1187 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 1188
07608083 11895.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1190
1191 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1192 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1193 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1194 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1195 returning true.
1196 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1197
0fd00e7b 1198 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1199 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1200 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1201
9bf423ee 1202 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1203 in Catalyst::execute
1204
1205 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1206 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1207 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1208
1209 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1210 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1211 (e.g. /account/*)
1212
1213 New features:
1214 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1215 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1216
1217 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1218 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1219 developers without changing their application code.

45cab07f 12215.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1222
718e6314 1223 Bug fixes:
1224 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1225 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1226 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1227 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1228 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1229
6ca73485 1230 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1231 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1232
7258c943 12335.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1234
1235 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1236
1237 Removed features:
1238
1239 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1240 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1241 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1242 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1243 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1244 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1245 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1246
1247 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1248 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1249 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1250 class, please tell us *now*.
1251
94edbd2c 12525.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1253
8865ee12 1254 New features:
1255 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1256 title.
2af2a5bf 1257 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1258 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1259 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1260 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1261 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1262 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1263
c046f519 1264 Bug fixes:
1265 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1266 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1267 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1268 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1269 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1270 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1271 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1272 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1273 failing case.
efc2aac0 1274 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1275 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1276 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1277 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1278 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1279 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1280 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1281 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1282
fa325a7d 1283 Documentation:
1284 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1285 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1286
47990d3f 12875.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1288
1289 New features:
4d723d12 1290 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1291 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1292 confused.
1293
47990d3f 1294 Warning fixes:
1295 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1296 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1297
b2910653 12985.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1299
808db1d6 1300 Bug fixes:
1301 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1302
7f891e1e 1303 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1304 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1305
b2910653 1306 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1307
d1672c76 13085.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00

1312
03235666 13135.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1314
2afd1ea3 1315 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1316 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1317 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1318 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1319
1320 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1321 application
1322
1323 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1324
2afd1ea3 1325 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1326 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1327 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1328 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1329 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1330
1f94dc3a 1331 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1332 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1333
9c64b93a 1334 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1335 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1336 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1337
ab83907b 1338 Refactoring:
1339 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1340 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1341
1342 Documentation:
1343 - Fix some typos

cba60982 13485.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1349
13c565fe 1350 New features:
1351 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1352 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1353 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1354 the default action creation.
1355
f5325631 1356 Bug fixes:
1357 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1358 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1359 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1360 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1361 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1362 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1363 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1364
1365 Documentation:
1366 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1367 point.
f8a54681 1368 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1369 values.
f73be6d2 1370 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1371
7aba3b2d 13725.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1373
1374 Bug fixes:
1375 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1376 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1377 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1378 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1379 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1380
1381 New features:
1382 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1383 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1384
1385 Documentation:
1386 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1387 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1388 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1389 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1390
e3a7414d 13915.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1392
46b58c90 1393 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1394 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1395 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1396 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1397 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1398 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1399 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1400 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1401 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1402
0319ec68 1403 New features:
1404 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1405 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1406 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1407 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1408 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1409 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1410 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1411 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1412
8fa9321c 1413 Documentation:
1414 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1415 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1416
1f52c1d2 1417 Cleanups:
1418 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1419 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1420 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1421
14a1ceef 14225.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1423
025d09f9 1424 New features:
1425 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1426 the content type and content length if available.
1427
13311c16 1428 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1429 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1430 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1431 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1432 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1433 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1434 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1435 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1436 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1437 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1438 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1439 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1440 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1441 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1442
13e46699 1443 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1444 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1445 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1446 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1447 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1448
d5c5d96f 14495.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1450
52e23ad4 1451 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1452 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1453 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1454
1bebcac6 14555.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1456
1457 New features:
1458 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
1459 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
1460
f0bb41af 14615.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1462
2689f8a4 1463 Bug fixed:
1464 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1465 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1466 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1467 which should not be encoded.
1468 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1469 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1470
1471 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1472 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1473 any set of args/captures.
1474
f54950f5 1475 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1476 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1477
0ff92c67 1478 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1479 removed.
c2f4efce 1480
1481 Documentation:
0ff92c67 1482 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
1483 for applications.
1484 - Various minor typo fixes.
c2f4efce 1485
4113e1bb 1486 New features:
1487 - Allow passing additional arguments to action constructors.

1490
ca78941c 1491 Bug fixed:
1492 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1493 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1494 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1495
c9ec25f8 1496 Documentation:
1497 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 1498 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1499
955d6da6 1500 Deprecations:
1501 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1502 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1503 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
1504

1506
1d3a0700 1507 Documentation:
1508 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1509 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1510 MyApp::View::HTML).
1511
e1d59dc4 1512 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1513 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1514 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1515 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1516 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1517 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1518 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1519 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1520 argv key in the options hash.
1521 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1522 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1523 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1524 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1525 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 1526 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
1527 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 1528
3f07296e 1529 Cleanups:
1530 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1531 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1532 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1533 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1534 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

1541 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1542
1543 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1544
82701bda 1545 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1546 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1547 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1548 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1549 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1550 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1551 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1552 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1553 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1554 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1555 URI.
754e86c6 1556 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1557
c96cdcef 1558 New features:
e66329da 1559
c96cdcef 1560 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1561 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1562 less packed with information of no use.

ea72fece 1569 Bug fixes:
1570 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1571 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1572 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1573 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI

ef546d1e 15805.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1581 Bug fixes:
1582 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1583 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1584 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1585 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1586 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1587 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1588 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1589 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1590 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1591 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1592 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1593 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1594 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1595 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1596 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1597

c4efaa54 1606
1607 Bug fixes:
1608 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1609 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1610 on the old behaviour.
1611
1612 Refactoring / cleanups:
1613 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1614 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1615
568e11a2 16165.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1617
9f16fdf2 1618 Bug fixes:
1619 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1620 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1621 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1622 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1623 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1624 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1625 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1626 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1627 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1628 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1629 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1630 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1631 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1632 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1633 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1634 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1635 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1636 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1637 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1638
d71da6fe 1639 Documentation:
1640 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1641 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1642 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1643 deprecated and causes warnings).
1644 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1645 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1646 in the correct order.
1647 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1648 context.
08a2c908 1649 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1650 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1651 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1652
ab86b480 1653 New features:
1654 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1655 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1656 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1657 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1658 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1659 distributions
10d77181 1660 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1661 exception classes need to implement.
1662 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1663 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1664 use it.
9f16fdf2 1665
647a3de1 1666 Refactoring / cleanups:
1667 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1668 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1669 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1670 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1671 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1672 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1673 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.
647a3de1 1674
1be0c4f8 16755.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1676
85fc6206 1677 Bug fixes:
1678 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1679 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1680 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1681 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1682 method.
1683 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1684 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1685 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1686
1687 Documentation:
85fc6206 1688 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1689 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1690 warnings.
297ff4ce 1691
1692 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1693 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1694 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1695 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1696 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1697 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

5d94e8f9 1701 Bug fixes:
1702 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1703 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1704 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1705 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1706 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1707 is returned to 'actions'.
1708 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1709 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1710
1711 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1712 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1713 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1714
1715 Tests:
1716 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1717 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1718 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.
1719
a61a96b3 17205.80011 2009-08-23 13:48:15
1721
9d59dde8 1722 Bug fixes:
1723 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1724 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1725 installed in @INC.
1726
f72168b7 17275.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 1728
1729 Bug fixes:
1730 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1731 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1732 than the default chunksize of 64k again.
1733
1b290713 17345.80009 2009-08-21 22:21:08
1735
e7e4c469 1736 Bug fixes:
1737 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1738 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1739 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1740
455b342e 17415.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1742
4ffa3785 1743 Bug fixes:
1744 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1745 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1746 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1747 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1748 tests.
2f6049f2 1749 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1750 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1751 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1752 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1753 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1754 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1755 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1756 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1757 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1758 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1759 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1760 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1761 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1762
371c6f1a 1763 Refactoring / cleanups:
1764 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1765 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1766 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1767 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1768 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1769 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1770 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1771
1772 New features:
d05e45ce 1773 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1774 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1775 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1776 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1777 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1778 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1779 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1780 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1781 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1782 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1783 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1784 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1785 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1786 the request.
371c6f1a 1787
1fe85999 1788 Documentation:
1789 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1790 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1791 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1792 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1798 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1799 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1800 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1801 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1802 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1803 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1804 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1805 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1806 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1807 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1808 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1809
a375a206 1810 New features:
1811 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1812 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1813 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1814 URI.

3c9b6867 1818 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1819 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1820 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1821 applications.
655dfc2a 1822 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1823 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1824 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1825 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1826 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1827 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1828 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1829 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1830 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1831 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1832 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1833 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1834 - Action methods named default and index fixed.
3c9b6867 1835
d58edd2a 1836 New features:
655dfc2a 1837 - Use ~ as prefix for plugins or action classes which are located in
1838 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1839 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1840 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1841 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1842 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1843
371c6f1a 1844 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1845 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1846 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1847 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1848 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1849 error message.
1850 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1851 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1852 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1853 Fixes RT#47366
1854 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1855 again in Catalyst::Test

545e1e3a 1872 loading
f66edc15 1873 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1874 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1875 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1876 later on
dd97c1ac 1877 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1878 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1885 (with attributes) can be used in / composed from Moose roles.
fd4d9ff7 1886 - Allow the generation of cookies with the HTTPOnly flag set
1887 in Catalyst::Engine (kmx)

545e1e3a 1904 environment
1905 - Require Moose 0.78 to fix metaclass incompatibility issues
c98492ae 1906 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1907 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1908 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1909 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1910 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1911 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1912 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1913 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1914 parse_on_demand is on

e262f38e 1927 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1928 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1929 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1930 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1931 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1932 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1933 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1934 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1935 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

1945 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1946 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1947 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)

b8123bba 19495.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1950 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 1951 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 1952 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1953 configuration in your application.
1954 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1955 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1956 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

545e1e3a 1965 the request parameters with undef + test
9c9a725d 1966 - Fix so that width of table of unattached actions for debugging
e99ec2dc 1967 ::DispatchType::Chained varies according to your terminal width
9c9a725d 1968 (Oleg Kostyuk)
e99ec2dc 1969 - Fix warning message about linearized @ISA in Catalyst::Component
1cc8db0c 1970 (Emanuele Zeppieri)
93704c74 1971 - Require MX::MethodAttributes 0.06 to avoid issues with saying
545e1e3a 1972 use base 'Catalyst::Controller'; use Moose; losing actions
1973 - Fix all of's typos in ::Upgrading and ::Delta (hobbs)

1994 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1995 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

2255 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2256 throw warnings for two reasons:

2258 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2259 instead
df3956bf 2260 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2261 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2262 method with a regex as the argument
