83b8cda1 2
b8ef930c 35.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 4 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
5 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
6 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 7 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 8 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
9 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 10 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e43b00f9 11
d2995a76 125.90101 - 2015-09-04
13 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
14 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
15
5e7e6b27 165.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 17 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
18 with type constraints.
19 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 20 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 21 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
22 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 23 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 24 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 25
a1dba4cf 265.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 27 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
28 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
29 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 30 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
31 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
32 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
33 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 34
ed5a562b 355.90096 - 2015-07-27
36 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
37 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
38 to define behavior better.
39
3f955f48 405.90095 - 2015-07-27
41 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
42 on CPAN testers.
43 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
44 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
45 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
46 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 47
b0ff1be8 485.90094 - 2015-07-24
49 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
50 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
51 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 52 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
53 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 54 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
55 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 56 - Merged Pull Requests:

b0ff1be8 63
80ba671f 645.90093 - 2015-05-29
65 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
66 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
67
5af5f973 685.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 69 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
70 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 71 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
72 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
73 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
74 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 75
765.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 77 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
78 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
79 even though they were actually created).
80
7dac038c 815.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 82 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
83 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
84 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
85 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
86 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
87
630ad67c 885.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 89 - Added swanky github badges.
90 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 91 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
92 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
93 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
94 retrieved.
95
718a1619 965.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 97 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
98 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 99 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
100 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
101 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 102
1592e3ff 1035.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 104 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
105 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
106 test fail.
107 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
108 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
109 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
110 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
111 and imported types.
d9f0a350 112 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
113 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
114 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 115 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
116 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
117 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
118 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
119 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 120 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
121 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
122 component.
ec4d7259 123 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
124 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
125 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
126 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
127 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 128 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
129 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 130 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
131 they are combined.
3e560748 132 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
133 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
134 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
135 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
136 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
137 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 138 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
139 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
140 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 141 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
142 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 143 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 144 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 145 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
146 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
147 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 148
1495.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 150 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 151 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 152 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
153 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 154 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
155 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 156 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
157 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 158 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 159 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 160
9f3e69ee 1615.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 162 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
163 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
164 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
165 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
166 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
167 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
168 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 169 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
170 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 171 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
172 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
173 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 174
8479713c 1755.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 176 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
177 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 178 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 179 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 180 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 181 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 182 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 183 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 184 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
185 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
186 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
187 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
188 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 189
1905.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 191 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 192 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 193 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
194 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
195 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
196 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 197
7131401a 1985.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 199 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
200 to prevent it happening again.
201
7131401a 2025.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 203 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
204 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
205 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
206 test case to prevent regressions.
207
7131401a 2085.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 209 - Minor documentation corrections
210 - Make the '79 development series stable
211
d2000928 2125.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
213 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
214 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 215 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 216 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 217
2185.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 219 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
220 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
221 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 222 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
223 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
224 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 225
b274486c 2265.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 227 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 228 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
229 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
230 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
231 note posted a few months ago.
232 - Added my name to the contributors list
233
6dcc5307 2345.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
235 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 236 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
237 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
238 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
239 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
240 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
241 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
242 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
243 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
244 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
245 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
246 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 247
c017b11b 2485.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 249 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
250 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
251 global variable.
252 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 253 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
254 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
255 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
256 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
257 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 258 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 259 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 260 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 261 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
262 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 263
501605db 2645.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
265 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
266 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
267
bd4b086b 2685.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
269 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
270 changes.
271
2725.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 273 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
274 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 275 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 276 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 277 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 278 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
279 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 280 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
281 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
282 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 283 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 284 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
285 correct if incorrect :)
286 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
287 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 288 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 289 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 290 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
291 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 292 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 293 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
294 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
295 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 296 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 297 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 298 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
299 you want to use.
342d2169 300 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
301 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
302 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
303 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
304 request uses.
460bb45b 305
a24232f9 3065.90079 - 2015-01-02
307 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
308 rt #101243)
309 - updated year in copyright notices
310
b94f8e72 3115.90078 - 2014-12-30
312 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 313 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 314 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
315 trouble. (davewood++);
316 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
317 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
318 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
319
ee2c12fd 3205.90077 - 2014-11-18
321 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
322 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
323 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
324 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
325 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
326
9c86666a 3275.90076 - 2014-11-13
328 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
329 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
330 HTTP Exception middleware.
331
0810283f 3325.90075 - 2014-10-06
333 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
334 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
335 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
336 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
337 you really need to review this exploit.
338
c027f9c4 3395.90074 - 2014-10-01
340 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
341
2be363b7 3425.90073 - 2014-09-23
343 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
344 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
345 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 346 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
347 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 348 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 349
4f96d61c 3505.90072 - 2014-09-15
351 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
352 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
353 so you can go to hunt it out.
354
d5765d73 3555.90071 - 2014-08-10
356 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
357 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
358 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
359 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
360 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 361 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 362
b96bd9f1 3635.90070 - 2014-08-07
364 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes

1893c194 3665.90069_004
367 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
368 certain tests. No other changes.
369
310c2a39 3705.90069_003
371 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 372 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
373 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
374 a bit.
375 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
376 anything new.
eae29f6e 377 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
378 type response.
379 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
380 improvements.
9c38cb50 381
91789f94 3825.90069_002
3e6ee020 383 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
384 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
385 questions or problems!
386 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
387 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
388 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
389 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 390 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
391 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
392 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 393 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
394 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
395
1b526dcc 3965.90069_001
41bf18c5 397 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
398 - documentation and test fixes
399
8f3c0676 4005.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 401 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
402 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
403 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
404 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 405 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 406 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 407 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 408
13adef05 4095.90064 - 2014-05-05
410 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
411 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
412
4135.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 414 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
415 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
416 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
417 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 418 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
419 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 420 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
421 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
422 configuration.
423 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 424s
4255.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 426 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
427 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
428
c8ad8cbc 4295.90061 - 2014-03-10
430 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
431 introduced by a change in December.
432
de9bcba0 4335.90060 - 2014-02-07
434 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
435
78acc1f7 436
26b42801 4375.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 438 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 439 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 440 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 441 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
442 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 443
b8534a44 4445.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 445 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
446 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 4475.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 448 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
449 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
450 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
451 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
452 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 453 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 454 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 455 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
456 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 457 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
458 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
459 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 460
7af15a33 4615.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 462 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 463 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
464 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 465 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
466 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
467 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 468
97e0c7c5 4695.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 470 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
471 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
472 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
473 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
474 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
475 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
476 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
477 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 478 to work much better.
479 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
480 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
481 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
482 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
483 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
484 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
485 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
486 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 487 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
488 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 489
78acc1f7 4905.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
491 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
492 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
493 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
494 will be broken.
495
5bb2a5b3 4965.90053 - 2013-12-21
497 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
498 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
499 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
500 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
501 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
502 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 503
7d01797b 5045.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 505
02352a28 506 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
507 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 508 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
509 does not exist.
510 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 511 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 512 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
513
514 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
515 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
516 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
517 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
518
3d3ea779 519 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
520 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 521 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 522 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
523 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 524
707988f8 5255.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 526 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 527 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
528
31bd6aec 5295.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 530 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
531 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
532 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 533
55119d7b 534 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
535 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
536 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
537
538 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
539 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
540 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
541 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 542
a61b6983 5435.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
544 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 545 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 546
5475.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 548 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
549 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
550 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
551 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
552 HTML forms.
ba1734df 553 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
554 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
555 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 556 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
557 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
558 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
559 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
560 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 561
fd5fb3a8 5625.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 563 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 564 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 565 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 566 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
567 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
568 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
569 those keys already exist). Keys added:
570 - plack.request.query
571 - plack.request.body
572 - plack.request.merged
573 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 574 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 575 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
576 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
577 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
578 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
579 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
580 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
581 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 582 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
583 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
584 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 585 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
586 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
587 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
588 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
589 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
590 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 591 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
592 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 593
b3070177 5945.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
595 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 596 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 597 updates, including:
598 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
599 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
600 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
601 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
602 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
603 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
604 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
605 a development setup (ether++)
606
e2aa4a21 6075.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
608 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
609 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
610 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
611 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 612 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
613 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
614 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 615
522134af 6165.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
617 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
618 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
619 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
620 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 621
01733d0f 6225.90042 - 2013-06-14
623 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
624 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 625 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
626 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
627 plugin
628 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
629 ask for encoding
630 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
631 caused trouble.
01733d0f 632
c287088e 6335.90041 - 2013-06-14
634 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
635 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
636 this fixes all of them.
637 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
638 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
639 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
640 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
641 number decimals
642 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
643
c8d9e6f4 6445.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 645 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
646 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
647 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 648 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 649 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 650 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 651 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
652 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 653 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
654 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 655 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 656 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
657 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
658 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
659 termination).
8275d3b9 660 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
661 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
662 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
663 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
664 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
665 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 666 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
667 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
668 for more.
d18964f7 669 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 670
f653d2c8 6715.90030 - 2013-04-12
672 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
673 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
674 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 675 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
676 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
677 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
678 resolve manually.
18df061a 679 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
680 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
681 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 682 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 683 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 684 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 685
6865.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 687 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
688 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
689 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
690 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
691 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
692 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 693 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
694 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
695 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
696 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 697 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 698 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 699 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 700 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 701
dbacbce4 7025.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 703 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
704 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
705 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 706 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 707
02f4beca 7085.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
709 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
710 HTTP::Message.
711
d6ae5104 7125.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 713 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 714
715 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
716 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
717
718 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
719
720 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
721 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
722
723 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
724
0df490ef 725 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
726 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
727 of request or response classes.
728
f0580bff 7295.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 730 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
731 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 732 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 733 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 734 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 735 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
736 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
737 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
738 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
739
cfdd890d 7405.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 741 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 742 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
743 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
744 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 745
f444811b 7465.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
747
258733f1 748 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /

aa3897db 7515.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
752
753 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
754 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
755 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
756 of Catalyst.
757
7585.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
759
eff60019 760 New features:
761 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
762
a7d2a530 763 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 764 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
765 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
766
40c06ae4 767 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
768 are supplied.
769
770 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
771 top level config.
a7d2a530 772
b334a4de 773 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
774
775 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.

3239be86 7775.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
778
57746b80 779 Distribution META.yml changes:
780 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
781 mis-parses from the documentation.
782 - x_authority key added.
783
9a649d25 784 Bug fixes:
785 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
786 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
787
1e089329 788 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
789 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
790 is less than helpful.
791
38e43e65 792 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
793 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
794 in bleadperl. RT#76437
795
2037f03f 796 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 797 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
798
d8ccdd9d 799 Documentation:
800 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
801 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
802 directly.
803 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 804 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 805 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710

808
f7ac80ef 809 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 810 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
811 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
812 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
813 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
814 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
815 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
816 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 817 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
818 applications.
df894348 819 - --background option for the server script now only closes
820 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
821 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 822 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
823 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 824 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
825 callback.
f7ac80ef 826

f7ac80ef 828
0c17b66d 829 Bug fixes:
830 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
831 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
832 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
833 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
834
8d196862 8355.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
836
0607947f 837 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 838 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
839 refactoring.
840
0607947f 841 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 842 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 843 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
844 included when not running from a checkout.
845
80267996 846 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
847
8529a7ea 848 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 849 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
850 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 851
d0cacee7 852 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043

af09d56c 8545.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
855
d0cfd993 856 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 857 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 858 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
859 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
860
861 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
862 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
863 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
864
865 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 866 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 867 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
868 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
869
870 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
871
0aba7d92 872 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 873 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
874 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
875 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
876 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
877 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
878
d0cfd993 879 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 880 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 881 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
882 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
883
e6bcfe8e 884 Tests:
3d2c4feb 885 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 886
e1e5366d 887 Documentation:
888 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
889 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
890 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
891
e6bcfe8e 892 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
893 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
894 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
895
00341d81 8965.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
897
0d7bf3a9 898 New features:
899 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
900 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
901 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
902 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
903 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
904
1ce9c7f6 905 Bug fixes:
906 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 907 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
908 over that.
a465926f 909 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
910 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
911 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 912
4c21ba3b 9135.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
914
27b0a436 915 New features:
916 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
917 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
918 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
919 get them passed through to the application.
920
4373973a 921 Documentation:
d685f38e 922 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
923 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
924 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
925 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
926
f4de8c99 927 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 928 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
929 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
930 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 931 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 932 a value.
933 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
934 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
935 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 936
c7250231 937 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
938 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
939
849b1b24 9405.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
941
ab6c6d3d 942 New features:
943
944 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
945 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
946 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
947 whereas before you had to say:
948 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
949 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
950 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
951 the two.
952
cf49ace4 953 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
954 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
955 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
956 scripts in the application.
957 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
958 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
959 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
960 otherwise).
961
ab6c6d3d 962 Documentation:
963
964 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
965 to avoid confusion
4373973a 966 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 967 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
968 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
969 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
970 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
971 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
972 and provide an alternative.
973
4ec26b6c 9745.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
975
65420d46 976 Bug fixes:
977
978 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
979 MyApp->engine_class.
980
a253d527 9815.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 982 Bug fixes:
983
4373973a 984 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 985
e95b2b49 986 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
987 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
988 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
989 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
990 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
991 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
992
fabe0bc6 993 Enhancements:
994
995 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
996 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
997
5cb939e8 998 Backward compatibility fixes:
999
1000 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 1001 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 1002
14eb7697 1003 Documentation fixes:
1004
1005 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
1006 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 1007
d536010b 1008 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 1009
824a5eb0 1010 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
1011
836a51a2 10125.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 1013 Backward compatibility fixes:
1014
1015 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
1016 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
1017 circumstances.
1018 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
1019
c47cd2ce 1020 Documentation fixes:
1021
1022 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
1023 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
1024 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

1028 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
1029 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.

1041 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1042
2f3f09d4 1043 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1044
2f3f09d4 1045 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1046 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1047 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1048
2f3f09d4 1049 Documentation:
72697c1d 1050
2f3f09d4 1051 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1052 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1053
2f3f09d4 1054 Changes:
cb1e348b 1055
2f3f09d4 1056 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1057 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1058 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1059
cfb5d52a 10605.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 1061
1062 Backward compatibility fixes:
1063
1064 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1065 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1066
1067 Bug fixes:
1068
ab4df9f8 1069 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1070 been made immutable.
1071
0d47e040 1072 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1073 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1074 example) Coro is loaded.
1075
1076 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1077 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1078
1079 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1080 using MooseX::Deamonize
1081
1082 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1083 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1084 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1085 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1086 deployed in these environments.
1087
c79bd3b0 1088 Enhancements:
1089
1090 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1091 the remote request.
0d47e040 1092
1093 Documentation:
1094 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1095 file for your application.
1096
4373973a 1097 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1098 engines clarified.
1099
1100 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1101 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1102 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
1103
b40baecd 11045.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
1105
f899107d 1106 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1107 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1108 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1109
1110 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1111
e3557c86 1112 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1113 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1114
1115 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1116 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1117
1118 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1119 was not breaking out correctly
1120
f899107d 1121 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1122 to also work in the $c->component method.
1123
5ff374b5 1124 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1125 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1126 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1127 mode.
2e4a8275 1128 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1129
52d65afe 1130 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1131
1132 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1133
1134 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1135 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1136 names.
1137
1138 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
1139
1f440f55 11405.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1141
1142 Bug fixes:
1143 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1144 not being installed.
1145
1146 Refactoring:
1147 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1148 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1149 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
1150
aceee8b5 11515.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
1152
2cd94c07 1153 Bug fixes:
1154 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1155
1156 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1157 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1158 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1159
2cd94c07 1160 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1161
2cd94c07 1162 Known problems:
1163 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1164 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1165 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1166 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1167
2cd94c07 1168 Documentation:
1169 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1170 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 1171
07608083 11725.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1173
1174 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1175 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1176 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1177 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1178 returning true.
1179 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1180
0fd00e7b 1181 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1182 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1183 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1184
9bf423ee 1185 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1186 in Catalyst::execute
1187
1188 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1189 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1190 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1191
1192 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1193 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1194 (e.g. /account/*)
1195
1196 New features:
1197 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1198 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1199
1200 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1201 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1202 developers without changing their application code.

718e6314 1206 Bug fixes:
1207 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1208 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1209 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1210 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1211 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1212
6ca73485 1213 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1214 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1215
7258c943 12165.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1217
1218 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1219
1220 Removed features:
1221
1222 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1223 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1224 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1225 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1226 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1227 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1228 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1229
1230 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1231 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1232 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1233 class, please tell us *now*.
1234
94edbd2c 12355.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1236
8865ee12 1237 New features:
1238 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1239 title.
2af2a5bf 1240 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1241 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1242 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1243 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1244 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1245 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1246
c046f519 1247 Bug fixes:
1248 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1249 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1250 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1251 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1252 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1253 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1254 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1255 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1256 failing case.
efc2aac0 1257 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1258 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1259 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1260 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1261 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1262 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1263 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1264 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1265
fa325a7d 1266 Documentation:
1267 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1268 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1269
47990d3f 12705.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1271
1272 New features:
4d723d12 1273 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1274 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1275 confused.
1276
47990d3f 1277 Warning fixes:
1278 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1279 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1280
b2910653 12815.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1282
808db1d6 1283 Bug fixes:
1284 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1285
7f891e1e 1286 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1287 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1288
b2910653 1289 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1290
d1672c76 12915.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 1292
1293 Bug fixes:
1294 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
1295
03235666 12965.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1297
2afd1ea3 1298 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1299 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1300 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1301 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1302
1303 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1304 application
1305
1306 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1307
2afd1ea3 1308 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1309 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1310 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1311 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1312 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1313
1f94dc3a 1314 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1315 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1316
9c64b93a 1317 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1318 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1319 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1320
ab83907b 1321 Refactoring:
1322 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1323 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1324
1325 Documentation:
1326 - Fix some typos
1327
1328 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI
1329
1330
cba60982 13315.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1332
13c565fe 1333 New features:
1334 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1335 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1336 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1337 the default action creation.
1338
f5325631 1339 Bug fixes:
1340 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1341 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1342 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1343 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1344 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1345 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1346 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1347
1348 Documentation:
1349 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1350 point.
f8a54681 1351 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1352 values.
f73be6d2 1353 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1354
7aba3b2d 13555.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1356
1357 Bug fixes:
1358 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1359 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1360 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1361 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1362 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1363
1364 New features:
1365 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1366 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1367
1368 Documentation:
1369 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1370 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1371 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1372 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1373
e3a7414d 13745.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1375
46b58c90 1376 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1377 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1378 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1379 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1380 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1381 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1382 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1383 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1384 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1385
0319ec68 1386 New features:
1387 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1388 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1389 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1390 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1391 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1392 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1393 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1394 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1395
8fa9321c 1396 Documentation:
1397 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1398 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1399
1f52c1d2 1400 Cleanups:
1401 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1402 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1403 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1404
14a1ceef 14055.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1406
025d09f9 1407 New features:
1408 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1409 the content type and content length if available.
1410
13311c16 1411 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1412 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1413 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1414 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1415 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1416 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1417 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1418 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1419 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1420 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1421 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1422 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1423 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1424 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1425
13e46699 1426 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1427 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1428 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1429 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1430 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1431
d5c5d96f 14325.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1433
52e23ad4 1434 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1435 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1436 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1437
1bebcac6 14385.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1439
1440 New features:
1441 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
1442 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
1443
f0bb41af 14445.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1445
2689f8a4 1446 Bug fixed:
1447 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1448 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1449 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1450 which should not be encoded.
1451 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1452 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1453
1454 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1455 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1456 any set of args/captures.
1457
f54950f5 1458 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1459 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1460
0ff92c67 1461 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1462 removed.
c2f4efce 1463
1464 Documentation:
0ff92c67 1465 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
1466 for applications.
1467 - Various minor typo fixes.
c2f4efce 1468
4113e1bb 1469 New features:
1470 - Allow passing additional arguments to action constructors.
1471
c6e5058f 14725.80018 2010-01-12 22:24:20
1473
ca78941c 1474 Bug fixed:
1475 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1476 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1477 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 1478
c9ec25f8 1479 Documentation:
1480 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 1481 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 1482
955d6da6 1483 Deprecations:
1484 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1485 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1486 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
1487
45b607ab 14885.80017 2010-01-10 02:27:29
1489
1d3a0700 1490 Documentation:
1491 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1492 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1493 MyApp::View::HTML).
1494
e1d59dc4 1495 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1496 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1497 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1498 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1499 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1500 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1501 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1502 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1503 argv key in the options hash.
1504 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1505 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1506 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1507 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1508 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 1509 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
1510 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 1511
3f07296e 1512 Cleanups:
1513 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1514 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1515 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1516 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1517 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 1521 Bug fixes:
e66329da 1522
b42b9094 1523 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
1524 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1525
1526 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1527
82701bda 1528 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1529 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1530 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1531 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1532 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1533 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1534 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1535 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1536 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1537 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1538 URI.
754e86c6 1539 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1540
c96cdcef 1541 New features:
e66329da 1542
c96cdcef 1543 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1544 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1545 less packed with information of no use.
1546
30079544 1547 Documentation:

0ab4f753 15515.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 1552 Bug fixes:
1553 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1554 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1555 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1556 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1557
1558 Documentation:
1559 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.
5a7d7e5c 1560 - Fix reversal of SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO in previously correct nginx
1561 FastCGI documentation introduced in _02.
ea72fece 1562
ef546d1e 15635.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1564 Bug fixes:
1565 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1566 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1567 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1568 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1569 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1570 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1571 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1572 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1573 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1574 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1575 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1576 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1577 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1578 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1579 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1580
2b3bb280 1581 Refactoring / cleanups:
1582 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
1583 (and then skipped) normally.

4fac276e 15885.80014_01 2009-11-22 20:01:23
c4efaa54 1589
1590 Bug fixes:
1591 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1592 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1593 on the old behaviour.
1594
1595 Refactoring / cleanups:
1596 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1597 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1598
568e11a2 15995.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1600
9f16fdf2 1601 Bug fixes:
1602 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1603 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1604 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1605 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1606 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1607 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1608 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1609 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1610 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1611 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1612 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1613 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1614 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1615 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1616 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1617 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1618 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1619 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1620 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1621
d71da6fe 1622 Documentation:
1623 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1624 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1625 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1626 deprecated and causes warnings).
1627 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1628 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1629 in the correct order.
1630 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1631 context.
08a2c908 1632 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1633 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1634 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1635
ab86b480 1636 New features:
1637 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1638 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1639 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1640 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1641 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1642 distributions
10d77181 1643 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1644 exception classes need to implement.
1645 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1646 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1647 use it.
9f16fdf2 1648
647a3de1 1649 Refactoring / cleanups:
1650 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1651 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1652 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1653 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1654 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1655 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1656 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

1659
85fc6206 1660 Bug fixes:
1661 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1662 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1663 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1664 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1665 method.
1666 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1667 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1668 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1669

1673 warnings.
297ff4ce 1674
1675 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1676 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1677 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1678 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1679 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1680 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

d367bfc9 1687 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1688 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1689 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1690 is returned to 'actions'.
1691 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1692 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1693
1694 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1695 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1696 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1697
1698 Tests:
1699 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1700 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1701 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1704
9d59dde8 1705 Bug fixes:
1706 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1707 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1708 installed in @INC.
1709

e7e4c469 1719 Bug fixes:
1720 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1721 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1722 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

1725
4ffa3785 1726 Bug fixes:
1727 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1728 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1729 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1730 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1731 tests.
2f6049f2 1732 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1733 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1734 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1735 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1736 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1737 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1738 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1739 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1740 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1741 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1742 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1743 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1744 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1745
371c6f1a 1746 Refactoring / cleanups:
1747 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1748 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1749 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1750 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1751 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1752 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1753 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

1755 New features:
d05e45ce 1756 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1757 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1758 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1759 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1760 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1761 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1762 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1763 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1764 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1765 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1766 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1767 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1768 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1769 the request.
371c6f1a 1770
1fe85999 1771 Documentation:
1772 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1773 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1774 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1775 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1783 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1784 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1785 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1786 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1787 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1788 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1789 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1790 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1791 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1792
a375a206 1793 New features:
1794 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1795 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1796 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1797 URI.

3c9b6867 1801 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1802 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1803 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1804 applications.
655dfc2a 1805 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1806 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1807 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1808 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1809 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1810 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1811 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1812 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1813 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1814 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1823 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1824 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1825 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1826
371c6f1a 1827 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1828 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1829 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1830 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1831 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1832 error message.
1833 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1834 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1835 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1836 Fixes RT#47366

1858 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1859 later on
dd97c1ac 1860 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1861 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

545e1e3a 1891 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1892 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1893 to report 'Unknown Error'

545e1e3a 1911 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1912 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1913 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1914 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1915 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1916 disabling functionality from base controllers.

1928 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1929 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1930 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)

4cb5d29f 1933 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 1934 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.

02298d3a 1976 - Tests for this (radek)
1977 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1978 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1979 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly

2238 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2239 throw warnings for two reasons:
2240 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
2241 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2242 instead
df3956bf 2243 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2244 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2245 method with a regex as the argument
