ee2c12fd 35.90077 - 2014-11-18
4 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
5 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
6 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
7 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
8 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
9
9c86666a 105.90076 - 2014-11-13
11 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
12 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
13 HTTP Exception middleware.
14
0810283f 155.90075 - 2014-10-06
16 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
17 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
18 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
19 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
20 you really need to review this exploit.
21
c027f9c4 225.90074 - 2014-10-01
23 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
24
2be363b7 255.90073 - 2014-09-23
26 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
27 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
28 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 29 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
30 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 31 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 32
4f96d61c 335.90072 - 2014-09-15
34 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
35 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
36 so you can go to hunt it out.
37
d5765d73 385.90071 - 2014-08-10
39 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
40 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
41 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
42 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
43 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
44 - Added italian translation of default error.
45
b96bd9f1 465.90070 - 2014-08-07
47 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
48
1893c194 495.90069_004
50 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
51 certain tests. No other changes.
52
310c2a39 535.90069_003
54 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 55 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
56 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
57 a bit.
58 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
59 anything new.
eae29f6e 60 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
61 type response.
62 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
63 improvements.
9c38cb50 64
91789f94 655.90069_002
3e6ee020 66 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
67 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
68 questions or problems!
69 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
70 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
71 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
72 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 73 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
74 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
75 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 76 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
77 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
78
1b526dcc 795.90069_001
41bf18c5 80 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
81 - documentation and test fixes
82
8f3c0676 835.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 84 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
85 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
86 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
87 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 88 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 89 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 90 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 91
13adef05 925.90064 - 2014-05-05
93 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
94 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
95
965.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 97 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
98 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
99 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
100 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 101 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
102 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 103 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
104 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
105 configuration.
106 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 107s
1085.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 109 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
110 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
111
c8ad8cbc 1125.90061 - 2014-03-10
113 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
114 introduced by a change in December.
115
de9bcba0 1165.90060 - 2014-02-07
117 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
118
78acc1f7 119
26b42801 1205.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 121 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
9c7b6768 122 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSIG
123 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 124 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
125 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 126
b8534a44 1275.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 128 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
129 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 1305.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 131 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
132 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
133 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
134 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
135 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 136 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
137 deprecated immediatelty. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
138 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
139 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 140 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
141 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
142 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 143
7af15a33 1445.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 145 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 146 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
147 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 148 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
149 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
150 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 151
97e0c7c5 1525.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 153 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
154 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
155 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
156 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
157 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
158 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
159 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
160 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 161 to work much better.
162 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
163 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
164 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
165 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
166 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
167 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
168 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
169 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 170 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
171 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 172
78acc1f7 1735.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
174 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
175 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
176 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
177 will be broken.
178
5bb2a5b3 1795.90053 - 2013-12-21
180 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
181 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
182 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
183 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
184 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
185 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 186
7d01797b 1875.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 188
02352a28 189 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
190 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 191 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
192 does not exist.
193 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
194 populare ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
195 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
196
197 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
198 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
199 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
200 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
201
3d3ea779 202 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
203 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
6f5cab0a 204 - Various POD formating fixed.
eda85460 205 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
206 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 207
707988f8 2085.90051 - 2013-11-06
209 - Be more skeptical of the existance of $request->env to fix a regression
210 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
211
31bd6aec 2125.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 213 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
214 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
215 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 216
55119d7b 217 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
218 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
219 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
220
221 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
222 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
223 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
224 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 225
a61b6983 2265.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
227 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 228 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 229
2305.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 231 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
232 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
233 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
234 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
235 HTML forms.
ba1734df 236 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
237 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
238 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 239 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
240 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
241 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
242 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
243 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 244
fd5fb3a8 2455.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 246 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
247 whichever is first (prefering to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
248 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 249 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
250 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
251 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
252 those keys already exist). Keys added:
253 - plack.request.query
254 - plack.request.body
255 - plack.request.merged
256 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 257 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 258 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
259 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
260 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
261 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
262 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
263 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
264 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 265 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
266 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
267 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 268 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
269 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
270 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
271 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
272 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
273 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 274 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
275 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 276
b3070177 2775.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
278 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
279 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatiblity
280 updates, including:
281 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
282 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
283 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
284 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
285 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
286 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
287 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
288 a development setup (ether++)
289
e2aa4a21 2905.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
291 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
292 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
293 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
294 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 295 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
296 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
297 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 298
522134af 2995.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
300 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
301 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
302 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
303 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 304
01733d0f 3055.90042 - 2013-06-14
306 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
307 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 308 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
309 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
310 plugin
311 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
312 ask for encoding
313 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
314 caused trouble.
01733d0f 315
c287088e 3165.90041 - 2013-06-14
317 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
318 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
319 this fixes all of them.
320 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
321 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
322 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
323 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
324 number decimals
325 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
326
c8d9e6f4 3275.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 328 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
329 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
330 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 331 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
701e20e5 332 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on perl 5.17.11
333 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 334 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
335 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 336 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
337 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 338 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 339 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
340 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
341 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
342 termination).
8275d3b9 343 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
344 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
345 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
346 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
347 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
348 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 349 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
350 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
351 for more.
d18964f7 352 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 353
f653d2c8 3545.90030 - 2013-04-12
355 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
356 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
357 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 358 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
359 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
360 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
361 resolve manually.
18df061a 362 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
363 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
364 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 365 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 366 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
367 - smarter valiation around action attributes.
5490e075 368
3695.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 370 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
371 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
372 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
373 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
374 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
375 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 376 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
377 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
378 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
379 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 380 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 381 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 382 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 383 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 384
dbacbce4 3855.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
07ec95ca 386 - Fix for perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
2fe6ed83 387 - Fix for perl 5.8. RT#61122
8c848c33 388 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on perl5.8
389 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 390
02f4beca 3915.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
392 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
393 HTTP::Message.
394
d6ae5104 3955.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 396 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 397
398 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
399 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
400
401 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
402
403 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
404 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
405
406 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
407
0df490ef 408 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
409 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
410 of request or response classes.
411
f0580bff 4125.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 413 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
414 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 415 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 416 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 417 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 418 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
419 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
420 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
421 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.

430
258733f1 431 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
432 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
433
aa3897db 4345.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
435
436 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
437 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
438 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
439 of Catalyst.
440
4415.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00

a7d2a530 446 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 447 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
448 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
449
40c06ae4 450 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
451 are supplied.
452
453 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
454 top level config.
a7d2a530 455
b334a4de 456 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32

461
57746b80 462 Distribution META.yml changes:
463 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
464 mis-parses from the documentation.
465 - x_authority key added.
466
9a649d25 467 Bug fixes:
468 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
469 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
470
1e089329 471 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
472 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
473 is less than helpful.
474
38e43e65 475 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
476 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
477 in bleadperl. RT#76437
478
2037f03f 479 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 480 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
481
d8ccdd9d 482 Documentation:
483 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
484 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
485 directly.
486 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 487 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000

491
f7ac80ef 492 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 493 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
494 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
495 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
496 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
497 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
498 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
499 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 500 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
501 applications.
df894348 502 - --background option for the server script now only closes
503 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
504 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 505 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
506 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 507 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
508 callback.
f7ac80ef 509

f7ac80ef 511
0c17b66d 512 Bug fixes:
513 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
514 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
515 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
516 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 520 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 521 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
522 refactoring.
523
0607947f 524 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
525 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
526 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
527 included when not running from a checkout.
528
80267996 529 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
530
8529a7ea 531 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 532 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
533 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 534
d0cacee7 535 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043

af09d56c 5375.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
538
d0cfd993 539 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 540 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 541 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
542 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
543
544 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
545 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
546 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
547
548 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 549 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 550 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
551 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
552
553 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
554
0aba7d92 555 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 556 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
557 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
558 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
559 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
560 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
561
d0cfd993 562 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 563 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 564 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
565 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
566
e6bcfe8e 567 Tests:
3d2c4feb 568 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 569
e1e5366d 570 Documentation:
571 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
572 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
573 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
574
e6bcfe8e 575 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
576 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
577 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
578
00341d81 5795.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
580
0d7bf3a9 581 New features:
582 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
583 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
584 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
585 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
586 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
587
1ce9c7f6 588 Bug fixes:
589 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 590 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
591 over that.
a465926f 592 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
593 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
594 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 595
4c21ba3b 5965.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
597
27b0a436 598 New features:
599 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
600 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
601 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
602 get them passed through to the application.
603
d685f38e 604 Doumentation:
605 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
606 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
607 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
608 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
609
f4de8c99 610 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 611 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
612 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
613 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
614 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
615 a value.
616 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
617 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
618 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 619
c7250231 620 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
621 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
622
849b1b24 6235.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
624
ab6c6d3d 625 New features:
626
627 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
628 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
629 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
630 whereas before you had to say:
631 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
632 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
633 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
634 the two.
635
cf49ace4 636 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
637 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
638 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
639 scripts in the application.
640 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
641 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
642 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
643 otherwise).
644
ab6c6d3d 645 Documentation:
646
647 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
648 to avoid confusion
649 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
650 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
651 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
652 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
653 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
654 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
655 and provide an alternative.

a253d527 6645.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 665 Bug fixes:
666
667 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
668
e95b2b49 669 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
670 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
671 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
672 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
673 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
674 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
675
fabe0bc6 676 Enhancements:
677
678 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
679 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
680
5cb939e8 681 Backward compatibility fixes:
682
683 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
684 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
685
14eb7697 686 Documentation fixes:
687
688 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
689 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 690
d536010b 691 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 692
824a5eb0 693 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
694
836a51a2 6955.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 696 Backward compatibility fixes:

698 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
699 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
700 circumstances.
701 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
702
c47cd2ce 703 Documentation fixes:
704
705 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
706 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
707 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

c20710a1 722 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 723
724 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 725
2f3f09d4 726 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 727
2f3f09d4 728 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
729 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
730 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 731
2f3f09d4 732 Documentation:
72697c1d 733
2f3f09d4 734 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
735 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 736
2f3f09d4 737 Changes:
cb1e348b 738
2f3f09d4 739 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
740 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
741 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 742

0d47e040 744
745 Backward compatibility fixes:
746
747 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
748 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
749
750 Bug fixes:
751
ab4df9f8 752 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
753 been made immutable.
754
0d47e040 755 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
756 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
757 example) Coro is loaded.
758
759 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
760 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
761
762 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
763 using MooseX::Deamonize
764
765 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
766 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
767 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
768 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
769 deployed in these environments.
770
c79bd3b0 771 Enhancements:
772
773 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
774 the remote request.
0d47e040 775
776 Documentation:
777 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
778 file for your application.
779
780 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
781 engines clarified.
782
783 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 784 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 785 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
786
b40baecd 7875.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
788
f899107d 789 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 790 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
791 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
792
793 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
794
e3557c86 795 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
796 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 797
798 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
799 IO::Handle's behaviour.
800
801 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
802 was not breaking out correctly
803
f899107d 804 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
805 to also work in the $c->component method.
806
5ff374b5 807 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
808 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
809 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
810 mode.
2e4a8275 811 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 812
52d65afe 813 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
814
815 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
816
817 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
818 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
819 names.
820
821 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.

825 Bug fixes:
826 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
827 not being installed.
828
829 Refactoring:
830 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
831 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
832 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

835
2cd94c07 836 Bug fixes:
837 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
838
839 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
840 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
841 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 842
2cd94c07 843 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 844
2cd94c07 845 Known problems:
846 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
847 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
848 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
849 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 850
2cd94c07 851 Documentation:
852 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
853 of Catalyst has been much improved.

857 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 858 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
859 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
860 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
861 returning true.
862 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
863
0fd00e7b 864 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
865 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
866 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
867
9bf423ee 868 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
869 in Catalyst::execute
870
871 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
872 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
873 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
874
875 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
876 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
877 (e.g. /account/*)
878
879 New features:
880 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
881 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
882
883 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
884 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
885 developers without changing their application code.
886
45cab07f 8875.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
888
718e6314 889 Bug fixes:
890 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
891 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
892 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
893 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
894 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
895
6ca73485 896 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
897 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
898
7258c943 8995.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
900
901 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
902
903 Removed features:
904
905 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
906 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
907 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
908 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
909 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
910 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
911 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
912
913 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
914 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
915 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
916 class, please tell us *now*.
917
94edbd2c 9185.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
919
8865ee12 920 New features:
921 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
922 title.
2af2a5bf 923 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
924 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
925 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
926 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
927 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
928 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 929
c046f519 930 Bug fixes:
931 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
932 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 933 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
934 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
935 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
936 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
937 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 938 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 939 failing case.
efc2aac0 940 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
941 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
942 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
943 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
944 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
945 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
946 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
947 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 948
fa325a7d 949 Documentation:
950 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
951 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
952
47990d3f 9535.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
954
955 New features:
4d723d12 956 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
957 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
958 confused.
959
47990d3f 960 Warning fixes:
961 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 962 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
963
b2910653 9645.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
965
808db1d6 966 Bug fixes:
967 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
968
7f891e1e 969 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
970 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
971
b2910653 972 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
973
d1672c76 9745.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 975
976 Bug fixes:
977 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
978
03235666 9795.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
980
2afd1ea3 981 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 982 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
983 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
984 load Utils before MyApp.pm
985
986 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
987 application
988
989 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
990
2afd1ea3 991 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
992 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
993 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
994 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
995 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 996
1f94dc3a 997 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
998 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 999
9c64b93a 1000 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1001 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1002 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1003
ab83907b 1004 Refactoring:
1005 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1006 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1007

cba60982 10145.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1015
13c565fe 1016 New features:
1017 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1018 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1019 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1020 the default action creation.
1021
f5325631 1022 Bug fixes:
1023 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1024 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1025 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1026 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1027 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1028 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1029 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1030
1031 Documentation:
1032 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1033 point.
f8a54681 1034 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1035 values.
f73be6d2 1036 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1037
7aba3b2d 10385.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1039
1040 Bug fixes:
1041 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1042 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1043 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1044 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1045 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1046
1047 New features:
1048 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1049 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1050
1051 Documentation:
1052 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1053 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1054 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1055 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1056
e3a7414d 10575.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1058
46b58c90 1059 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1060 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1061 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1062 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1063 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1064 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1065 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1066 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1067 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1068
0319ec68 1069 New features:
1070 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1071 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1072 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1073 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1074 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1075 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1076 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1077 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1078
8fa9321c 1079 Documentation:
1080 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1081 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1082
1f52c1d2 1083 Cleanups:
1084 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1085 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1086 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1087
14a1ceef 10885.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1089
025d09f9 1090 New features:
1091 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1092 the content type and content length if available.
1093
13311c16 1094 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1095 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1096 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1097 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1098 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1099 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1100 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1101 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1102 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1103 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1104 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1105 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1106 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1107 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1108
13e46699 1109 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1110 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1111 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1112 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1113 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1114
d5c5d96f 11155.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1116
52e23ad4 1117 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1118 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 1119 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 1120
1bebcac6 11215.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1122
1123 New features:
1124 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
1125 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
1126
f0bb41af 11275.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1128
2689f8a4 1129 Bug fixed:
1130 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1131 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1132 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1133 which should not be encoded.
1134 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1135 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1136
1137 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1138 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1139 any set of args/captures.
1140
f54950f5 1141 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1142 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1143
0ff92c67 1144 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1145 removed.
c2f4efce 1146
1147 Documentation:
0ff92c67 1148 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
1149 for applications.
1150 - Various minor typo fixes.
c2f4efce 1151
4113e1bb 1152 New features:
1153 - Allow passing additional arguments to action constructors.

c6e5058f 11555.80018 2010-01-12 22:24:20
1156
ca78941c 1157 Bug fixed:
1158 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1159 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1160 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1161
c9ec25f8 1162 Documentation:
1163 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 1164 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1165
955d6da6 1166 Deprecations:
1167 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1168 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1169 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
1170

1172
1d3a0700 1173 Documentation:
1174 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1175 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1176 MyApp::View::HTML).
1177
e1d59dc4 1178 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1179 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1180 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1181 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1182 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1183 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1184 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1185 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1186 argv key in the options hash.
1187 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1188 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1189 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1190 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1191 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 1192 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
1193 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 1194
3f07296e 1195 Cleanups:
1196 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1197 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1198 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1199 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1200 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 1206 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
1207 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1208
1209 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1210
82701bda 1211 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1212 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1213 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1214 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1215 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1216 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1217 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1218 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
1219 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
1220 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1221 URI.
754e86c6 1222 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1223
c96cdcef 1224 New features:
e66329da 1225
c96cdcef 1226 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1227 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1228 less packed with information of no use.

ea72fece 1235 Bug fixes:
1236 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1237 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1238 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1239 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1240
1241 Documentation:
1242 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ef546d1e 12465.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1247 Bug fixes:
1248 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1249 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1250 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1251 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1252 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1253 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1254 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1255 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1256 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1257 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1258 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1259 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1260 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1261 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1262 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1263
2b3bb280 1264 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 1272
1273 Bug fixes:
1274 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1275 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1276 on the old behaviour.
1277
1278 Refactoring / cleanups:
1279 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1280 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1281
568e11a2 12825.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1283
9f16fdf2 1284 Bug fixes:
1285 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1286 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1287 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1288 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1289 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1290 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1291 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1292 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1293 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1294 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1295 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1296 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1297 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1298 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1299 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 1300 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
1301 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1302 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1303 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1304
d71da6fe 1305 Documentation:
1306 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1307 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1308 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1309 deprecated and causes warnings).
1310 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1311 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1312 in the correct order.
1313 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1314 context.
08a2c908 1315 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1316 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1317 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1318
ab86b480 1319 New features:
1320 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1321 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1322 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1323 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1324 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1325 distributions
10d77181 1326 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1327 exception classes need to implement.
1328 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1329 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1330 use it.
9f16fdf2 1331
647a3de1 1332 Refactoring / cleanups:
1333 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1334 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1335 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1336 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1337 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1338 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1339 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.
647a3de1 1340
1be0c4f8 13415.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1342
85fc6206 1343 Bug fixes:
1344 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1345 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1346 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1347 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1348 method.
1349 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1350 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1351 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1352
1353 Documentation:
85fc6206 1354 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1355 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1356 warnings.
297ff4ce 1357
1358 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1359 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1360 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1361 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1362 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1363 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

5d94e8f9 1367 Bug fixes:
1368 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1369 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1370 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1371 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1372 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1373 is returned to 'actions'.
1374 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1375 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1376
1377 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1378 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1379 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1380
1381 Tests:
1382 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1383 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1384 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.
1385
a61a96b3 13865.80011 2009-08-23 13:48:15
1387
9d59dde8 1388 Bug fixes:
1389 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1390 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1391 installed in @INC.
1392
f72168b7 13935.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 1394
1395 Bug fixes:
1396 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1397 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1398 than the default chunksize of 64k again.
1399

1401
e7e4c469 1402 Bug fixes:
1403 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1404 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1405 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1406
455b342e 14075.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1408
4ffa3785 1409 Bug fixes:
1410 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1411 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1412 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1413 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1414 tests.
2f6049f2 1415 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1416 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1417 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1418 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1419 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1420 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1421 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1422 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1423 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1424 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1425 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1426 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1427 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1428
371c6f1a 1429 Refactoring / cleanups:
1430 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1431 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1432 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1433 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1434 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1435 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1436 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1437
1438 New features:
d05e45ce 1439 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1440 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1441 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1442 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1443 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1444 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1445 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1446 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1447 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1448 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1449 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1450 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1451 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1452 the request.
371c6f1a 1453
1fe85999 1454 Documentation:
1455 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1456 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1457 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1458 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1464 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1465 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1466 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1467 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1468 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1469 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1470 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1471 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1472 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1473 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1474 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1475
a375a206 1476 New features:
1477 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1478 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1479 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1480 URI.

3c9b6867 1484 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1485 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1486 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1487 applications.
655dfc2a 1488 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1489 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1490 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1491 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1492 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1493 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1494 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1495 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1496 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1497 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1498 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1499 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1500 - Action methods named default and index fixed.
3c9b6867 1501
d58edd2a 1502 New features:
655dfc2a 1503 - Use ~ as prefix for plugins or action classes which are located in
1504 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1505 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1506 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1507 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1508 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1509
371c6f1a 1510 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1511 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1512 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1513 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1514 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1515 error message.
1516 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1517 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1518 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1519 Fixes RT#47366
1520 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1521 again in Catalyst::Test

545e1e3a 1538 loading
f66edc15 1539 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1540 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1541 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1542 later on
dd97c1ac 1543 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1544 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1551 (with attributes) can be used in / composed from Moose roles.
fd4d9ff7 1552 - Allow the generation of cookies with the HTTPOnly flag set
1553 in Catalyst::Engine (kmx)

545e1e3a 1570 environment
1571 - Require Moose 0.78 to fix metaclass incompatibility issues
c98492ae 1572 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1573 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1574 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1575 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1576 to report 'Unknown Error'

e262f38e 1593 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1594 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1595 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1596 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1597 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1598 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1599 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1600 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1601 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 1609 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1610 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1611 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1612 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1613 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)

b8123bba 16155.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1616 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1617 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.
1618 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1619 configuration in your application.
1620 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1621 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1622 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

545e1e3a 1631 the request parameters with undef + test
9c9a725d 1632 - Fix so that width of table of unattached actions for debugging
e99ec2dc 1633 ::DispatchType::Chained varies according to your terminal width
9c9a725d 1634 (Oleg Kostyuk)
e99ec2dc 1635 - Fix warning message about linearized @ISA in Catalyst::Component
1cc8db0c 1636 (Emanuele Zeppieri)
93704c74 1637 - Require MX::MethodAttributes 0.06 to avoid issues with saying
545e1e3a 1638 use base 'Catalyst::Controller'; use Moose; losing actions

545e1e3a 1658 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 1659 - Tests for this (radek)
1660 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1661 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1662 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 1663 - Tests for this (radek)

f0ee3380 1667 - Change the warning when you have conflicting components to
545e1e3a 1668 present a list
19a24dbb 1669 - Move NEXT use and testing deprecated features out to its own
1670 test application so that the main TestApp isn't polluted with
545e1e3a 1671 spurious warnings
1672 - Add a warning for the old ::[MVC]:: style naming scheme
1673 - Test for this
2d9f9c8d 1674 - Kill Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT warnings for the Catalyst:: namespace
545e1e3a 1675 in production versions

545e1e3a 1685 immutable restart correctly.
1686 - Tests for this
107d0ba0 1687 - Bump Moose dependency to 0.70 so that we avoid nasty surprises

e7924bb5 1702 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
1703 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 1704 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1705 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1706 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1707 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1708 syntax.
e7924bb5 1709 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
1710 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.

1921 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1922 throw warnings for two reasons:

1924 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1925 instead
df3956bf 1926 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1927 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1928 method with a regex as the argument
