342d2169 35.90079_001 - TBD
460bb45b 4 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
5 existing Plack conventions.
b194746d 6 - Modify Catayst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
7 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4b0b7489 8 - Modified Catayst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
9 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
10 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 11 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
12 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
13 I highly suggest you test this release.
e5a5e80b 14 - We alway do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
15 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
16 correct if incorrect :)
17 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
18 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
19 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specificed via the encoding configuration value).
20 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 21 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
22 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 23 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 24 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
25 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
26 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 27 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
342d2169 28 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional methd 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 29 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
30 you want to use.
342d2169 31 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
32 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
33 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
34 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
35 request uses.
460bb45b 36
ee2c12fd 375.90077 - 2014-11-18
38 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
39 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
40 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
41 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
42 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
43
9c86666a 445.90076 - 2014-11-13
45 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
46 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
47 HTTP Exception middleware.
48
0810283f 495.90075 - 2014-10-06
50 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
51 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
52 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
53 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
54 you really need to review this exploit.
55
c027f9c4 565.90074 - 2014-10-01
57 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
58
2be363b7 595.90073 - 2014-09-23
60 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
61 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
62 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 63 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
64 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 65 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 66
4f96d61c 675.90072 - 2014-09-15
68 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
69 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
70 so you can go to hunt it out.
71
d5765d73 725.90071 - 2014-08-10
73 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
74 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
75 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
76 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
77 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
78 - Added italian translation of default error.
79
b96bd9f1 805.90070 - 2014-08-07
81 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
82
1893c194 835.90069_004
84 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
85 certain tests. No other changes.
86
310c2a39 875.90069_003
88 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 89 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
90 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
91 a bit.
92 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
93 anything new.
eae29f6e 94 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
95 type response.
96 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
97 improvements.
9c38cb50 98
91789f94 995.90069_002
3e6ee020 100 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
101 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
102 questions or problems!
103 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
104 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
105 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
106 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 107 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
108 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
109 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 110 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
111 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
112
1b526dcc 1135.90069_001
41bf18c5 114 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
115 - documentation and test fixes
116
8f3c0676 1175.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 118 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
119 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
120 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
121 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 122 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 123 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 124 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 125
13adef05 1265.90064 - 2014-05-05
127 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
128 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
129
1305.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 131 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
132 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
133 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
134 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 135 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
136 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 137 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
138 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
139 configuration.
140 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 141s
1425.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 143 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
144 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
145
c8ad8cbc 1465.90061 - 2014-03-10
147 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
148 introduced by a change in December.
149
de9bcba0 1505.90060 - 2014-02-07
151 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
152
78acc1f7 153
26b42801 1545.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 155 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
9c7b6768 156 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSIG
157 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 158 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
159 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 160
b8534a44 1615.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 162 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
163 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 1645.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 165 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
166 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
167 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
168 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
169 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 170 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
171 deprecated immediatelty. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
172 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
173 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 174 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
175 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
176 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 177
7af15a33 1785.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 179 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 180 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
181 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 182 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
183 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
184 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 185
97e0c7c5 1865.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 187 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
188 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
189 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
190 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
191 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
192 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
193 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
194 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 195 to work much better.
196 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
197 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
198 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
199 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
200 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
201 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
202 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
203 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 204 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
205 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 206
78acc1f7 2075.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
208 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
209 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
210 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
211 will be broken.
212
5bb2a5b3 2135.90053 - 2013-12-21
214 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
215 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
216 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
217 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
218 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
219 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 220
7d01797b 2215.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 222
02352a28 223 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
224 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 225 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
226 does not exist.
227 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
228 populare ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
229 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
230
231 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
232 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
233 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
234 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
235
3d3ea779 236 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
237 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
6f5cab0a 238 - Various POD formating fixed.
eda85460 239 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
240 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 241
707988f8 2425.90051 - 2013-11-06
243 - Be more skeptical of the existance of $request->env to fix a regression
244 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
245
31bd6aec 2465.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 247 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
248 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
249 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 250
55119d7b 251 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
252 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
253 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
254
255 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
256 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
257 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
258 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 259
a61b6983 2605.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
261 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 262 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 263
2645.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 265 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
266 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
267 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
268 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
269 HTML forms.
ba1734df 270 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
271 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
272 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 273 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
274 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
275 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
276 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
277 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 278
fd5fb3a8 2795.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 280 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
281 whichever is first (prefering to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
282 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 283 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
284 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
285 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
286 those keys already exist). Keys added:
287 - plack.request.query
288 - plack.request.body
289 - plack.request.merged
290 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 291 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 292 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
293 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
294 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
295 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
296 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
297 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
298 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 299 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
300 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
301 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 302 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
303 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
304 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
305 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
306 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
307 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 308 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
309 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 310
b3070177 3115.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
312 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
313 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatiblity
314 updates, including:
315 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
316 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
317 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
318 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
319 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
320 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
321 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
322 a development setup (ether++)
323
e2aa4a21 3245.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
325 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
326 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
327 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
328 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 329 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
330 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
331 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 332
522134af 3335.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
334 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
335 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
336 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
337 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 338
01733d0f 3395.90042 - 2013-06-14
340 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
341 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 342 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
343 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
344 plugin
345 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
346 ask for encoding
347 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
348 caused trouble.
01733d0f 349
c287088e 3505.90041 - 2013-06-14
351 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
352 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
353 this fixes all of them.
354 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
355 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
356 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
357 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
358 number decimals
359 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
360
c8d9e6f4 3615.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 362 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
363 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
364 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 365 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
701e20e5 366 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on perl 5.17.11
367 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 368 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
369 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 370 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
371 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 372 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 373 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
374 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
375 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
376 termination).
8275d3b9 377 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
378 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
379 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
380 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
381 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
382 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 383 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
384 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
385 for more.
d18964f7 386 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 387
f653d2c8 3885.90030 - 2013-04-12
389 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
390 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
391 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 392 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
393 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
394 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
395 resolve manually.
18df061a 396 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
397 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
398 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 399 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 400 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
401 - smarter valiation around action attributes.
5490e075 402
4035.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 404 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
405 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
406 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
407 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
408 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
409 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 410 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
411 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
412 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
413 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 414 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 415 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 416 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 417 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 418
dbacbce4 4195.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
07ec95ca 420 - Fix for perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
2fe6ed83 421 - Fix for perl 5.8. RT#61122
8c848c33 422 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on perl5.8
423 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 424
02f4beca 4255.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
426 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
427 HTTP::Message.
428
d6ae5104 4295.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 430 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 431
432 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
433 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
434
435 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
436
437 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
438 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
439
440 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
441
0df490ef 442 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
443 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
444 of request or response classes.
445
f0580bff 4465.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 447 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
448 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 449 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 450 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 451 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 452 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
453 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
454 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
455 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
456
cfdd890d 4575.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 458 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 459 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
460 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
461 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 462
f444811b 4635.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
464
258733f1 465 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
466 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
467
aa3897db 4685.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
469
470 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
471 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
472 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
473 of Catalyst.
474
4755.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
476
eff60019 477 New features:
478 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
479
a7d2a530 480 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 481 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
482 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
483
40c06ae4 484 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
485 are supplied.
486
487 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
488 top level config.
a7d2a530 489
b334a4de 490 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
491
492 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
493
3239be86 4945.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
495
57746b80 496 Distribution META.yml changes:
497 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
498 mis-parses from the documentation.
499 - x_authority key added.
500
9a649d25 501 Bug fixes:
502 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
503 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
504
1e089329 505 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
506 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
507 is less than helpful.
508
38e43e65 509 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
510 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
511 in bleadperl. RT#76437
512
2037f03f 513 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 514 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
515
d8ccdd9d 516 Documentation:
517 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
518 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
519 directly.
520 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 521 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 522 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 523
2114ee9f 5245.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
525
f7ac80ef 526 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 527 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
528 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
529 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
530 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
531 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
532 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
533 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 534 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
535 applications.
df894348 536 - --background option for the server script now only closes
537 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
538 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 539 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
540 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 541 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
542 callback.
f7ac80ef 543
fed36d61 5445.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 545
0c17b66d 546 Bug fixes:
547 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
548 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
549 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
550 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
551
8d196862 5525.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
553
0607947f 554 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 555 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
556 refactoring.
557
0607947f 558 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
559 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
560 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
561 included when not running from a checkout.
562
80267996 563 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
564
8529a7ea 565 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 566 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
567 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 568
d0cacee7 569 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
570
af09d56c 5715.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
572
d0cfd993 573 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 574 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 575 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
576 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
577
578 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
579 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
580 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
581
582 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 583 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 584 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
585 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
586
587 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
588
0aba7d92 589 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 590 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
591 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
592 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
593 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
594 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
595
d0cfd993 596 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 597 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 598 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
599 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
600
e6bcfe8e 601 Tests:
3d2c4feb 602 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 603
e1e5366d 604 Documentation:
605 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
606 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
607 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
608
e6bcfe8e 609 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
610 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
611 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
612
00341d81 6135.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
614
0d7bf3a9 615 New features:
616 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
617 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
618 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
619 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
620 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
621
1ce9c7f6 622 Bug fixes:
623 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 624 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
625 over that.
a465926f 626 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
627 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
628 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 629
4c21ba3b 6305.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
631
27b0a436 632 New features:
633 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
634 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
635 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
636 get them passed through to the application.
637
d685f38e 638 Doumentation:
639 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
640 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
641 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
642 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
643
f4de8c99 644 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 645 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
646 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
647 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
648 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
649 a value.
650 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
651 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
652 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 653
c7250231 654 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
655 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
656
849b1b24 6575.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
658
ab6c6d3d 659 New features:
660
661 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
662 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
663 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
664 whereas before you had to say:
665 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
666 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
667 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
668 the two.
669
cf49ace4 670 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
671 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
672 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
673 scripts in the application.
674 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
675 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
676 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
677 otherwise).
678
ab6c6d3d 679 Documentation:
680
681 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
682 to avoid confusion
683 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
684 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
685 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
686 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
687 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
688 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
689 and provide an alternative.
690
4ec26b6c 6915.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
692
65420d46 693 Bug fixes:
694
695 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
696 MyApp->engine_class.
697
a253d527 6985.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 699 Bug fixes:
700
701 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
702
e95b2b49 703 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
704 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
705 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
706 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
707 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
708 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
709
fabe0bc6 710 Enhancements:
711
712 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
713 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
714
5cb939e8 715 Backward compatibility fixes:
716
717 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
718 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
719
14eb7697 720 Documentation fixes:
721
722 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
723 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 724
d536010b 725 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 726
824a5eb0 727 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
728
836a51a2 7295.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 730 Backward compatibility fixes:
731
732 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
733 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
734 circumstances.
735 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
736
c47cd2ce 737 Documentation fixes:
738
739 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
740 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
741 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

3143ee5f 7435.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
744
745 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
746 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
747
748 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
749
750 Cut another release.

72697c1d 755
c20710a1 756 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 757
758 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 759
2f3f09d4 760 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 761
2f3f09d4 762 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
763 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
764 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 765
2f3f09d4 766 Documentation:
72697c1d 767
2f3f09d4 768 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
769 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 770
2f3f09d4 771 Changes:
cb1e348b 772
2f3f09d4 773 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
774 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
775 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 776
cfb5d52a 7775.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 778
779 Backward compatibility fixes:
780
781 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
782 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
783
784 Bug fixes:
785
ab4df9f8 786 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
787 been made immutable.
788
0d47e040 789 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
790 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
791 example) Coro is loaded.
792
793 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
794 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
795
796 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
797 using MooseX::Deamonize
798
799 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
800 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
801 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
802 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
803 deployed in these environments.
804
c79bd3b0 805 Enhancements:
806
807 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
808 the remote request.
0d47e040 809
810 Documentation:
811 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
812 file for your application.
813
814 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
815 engines clarified.
816
817 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 818 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 819 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
820
b40baecd 8215.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
822
f899107d 823 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 824 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
825 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
826
827 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
828
e3557c86 829 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
830 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 831
832 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
833 IO::Handle's behaviour.
834
835 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
836 was not breaking out correctly
837
f899107d 838 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
839 to also work in the $c->component method.

5ff374b5 841 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
842 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
843 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
844 mode.
2e4a8275 845 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 846

1f440f55 8575.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
858
859 Bug fixes:
860 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
861 not being installed.
862
863 Refactoring:
864 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
865 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
866 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

2cd94c07 870 Bug fixes:
871 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
872
873 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
874 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
875 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 876
2cd94c07 877 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 878
2cd94c07 879 Known problems:
880 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
881 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
882 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
883 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 884
2cd94c07 885 Documentation:
886 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
887 of Catalyst has been much improved.

07608083 8895.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 890
891 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 892 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
893 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
894 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
895 returning true.
896 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
897
0fd00e7b 898 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
899 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
900 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
901
9bf423ee 902 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
903 in Catalyst::execute
904
905 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
906 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
907 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
908
909 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
910 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
911 (e.g. /account/*)
912
913 New features:
914 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
915 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
916
917 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
918 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
919 developers without changing their application code.
920
45cab07f 9215.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
922
718e6314 923 Bug fixes:
924 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
925 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
926 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
927 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
928 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
929
6ca73485 930 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
931 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
932
7258c943 9335.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
934
935 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
936
937 Removed features:
938
939 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
940 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
941 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
942 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
943 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
944 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
945 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
946
947 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
948 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
949 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
950 class, please tell us *now*.
951
94edbd2c 9525.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
953
8865ee12 954 New features:
955 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
956 title.
2af2a5bf 957 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
958 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
959 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
960 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
961 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
962 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 963
c046f519 964 Bug fixes:
965 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
966 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 967 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
968 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
969 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
970 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
971 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 972 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 973 failing case.
efc2aac0 974 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
975 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
976 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
977 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
978 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
979 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
980 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
981 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 982
fa325a7d 983 Documentation:
984 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
985 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
986
47990d3f 9875.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
988
989 New features:
4d723d12 990 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
991 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
992 confused.
993
47990d3f 994 Warning fixes:
995 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 996 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
997

808db1d6 1000 Bug fixes:
1001 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1002
7f891e1e 1003 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1004 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1005

1014
2afd1ea3 1015 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1016 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1017 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1018 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1019
1020 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1021 application
1022
1023 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1024
2afd1ea3 1025 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1026 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1027 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1028 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1029 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1030
1f94dc3a 1031 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1032 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1033
9c64b93a 1034 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1035 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1036 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1037
ab83907b 1038 Refactoring:
1039 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1040 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components

cba60982 10485.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1049
13c565fe 1050 New features:
1051 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1052 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1053 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1054 the default action creation.
1055
f5325631 1056 Bug fixes:
1057 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1058 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1059 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1060 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1061 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1062 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application

1065 Documentation:
1066 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1067 point.
f8a54681 1068 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1069 values.
f73be6d2 1070 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1071
7aba3b2d 10725.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1073
1074 Bug fixes:
1075 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1076 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1077 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1078 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1079 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1080
1081 New features:
1082 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1083 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1084
1085 Documentation:
1086 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1087 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1088 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1089 Catalyst::Engine::CGI

671123ba 1094 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1095 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1096 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1097 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1098 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1099 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1100 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1101 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1102
0319ec68 1103 New features:
1104 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1105 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1106 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1107 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1108 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1109 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1110 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1111 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1112
8fa9321c 1113 Documentation:
1114 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1115 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1116
1f52c1d2 1117 Cleanups:
1118 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1119 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1120 $Catalyst::VERSION.

14a1ceef 11225.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1123
025d09f9 1124 New features:
1125 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1126 the content type and content length if available.
1127
13311c16 1128 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1129 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1130 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1131 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1132 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1133 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1134 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1135 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1136 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1137 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1138 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1139 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1140 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1141 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1142
13e46699 1143 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1144 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1145 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1146 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1147 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1148

52e23ad4 1151 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1152 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 1153 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.

1162
2689f8a4 1163 Bug fixed:
1164 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1165 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1166 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1167 which should not be encoded.
1168 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1169 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1170
1171 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1172 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1173 any set of args/captures.
1174
f54950f5 1175 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1176 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1177
0ff92c67 1178 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been

1206
1d3a0700 1207 Documentation:
1208 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1209 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1210 MyApp::View::HTML).
1211
e1d59dc4 1212 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1213 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1214 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1215 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1216 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1217 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1218 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1219 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1220 argv key in the options hash.
1221 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1222 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1223 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1224 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1225 versions >= 0.93_01

3f07296e 1229 Cleanups:
1230 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1231 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1232 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1233 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1234 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

82701bda 1245 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1246 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1247 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1248 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1249 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1250 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1251 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1252 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
1253 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
1254 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1255 URI.

1271 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1272 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1273 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1274
1275 Documentation:
1276 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.
5a7d7e5c 1277 - Fix reversal of SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO in previously correct nginx
1278 FastCGI documentation introduced in _02.

5ab21903 1281 Bug fixes:
1282 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1283 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1284 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1285 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1286 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1287 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1288 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1289 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1290 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1291 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1292 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1293 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1294 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1295 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1296 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1297
2b3bb280 1298 Refactoring / cleanups:
1299 - NoTabs and Pod tests moved to t/author so that they're not run
1300 (and then skipped) normally.

c4efaa54 1306
1307 Bug fixes:
1308 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1309 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1310 on the old behaviour.
1311
1312 Refactoring / cleanups:
1313 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1314 are deprecated and now issue warnings.

568e11a2 13165.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1317
9f16fdf2 1318 Bug fixes:
1319 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1320 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1321 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1322 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1323 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1324 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1325 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1326 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1327 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1328 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1329 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1330 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1331 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1332 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1333 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 1334 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
1335 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1336 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1337 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1338
d71da6fe 1339 Documentation:
1340 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1341 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1342 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1343 deprecated and causes warnings).
1344 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1345 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1346 in the correct order.
1347 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1348 context.
08a2c908 1349 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1350 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1351 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1352
ab86b480 1353 New features:
1354 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1355 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1356 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1357 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1358 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1359 distributions
10d77181 1360 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1361 exception classes need to implement.
1362 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1363 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1364 use it.
9f16fdf2 1365
647a3de1 1366 Refactoring / cleanups:
1367 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1368 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1369 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1370 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1371 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1372 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1373 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1377 Bug fixes:
1378 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1379 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1380 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1381 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1382 method.
1383 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1384 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1385 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1386
1387 Documentation:
85fc6206 1388 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1389 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1390 warnings.
297ff4ce 1391
1392 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1393 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1394 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1395 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1396 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1397 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1402 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1403 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1404 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1405 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1406 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1407 is returned to 'actions'.
1408 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1409 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1410
1411 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1412 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1413 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1414
1415 Tests:
1416 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1417 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1418 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

9d59dde8 1422 Bug fixes:
1423 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1424 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1425 installed in @INC.

9d3a7a1f 1428
1429 Bug fixes:
1430 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1431 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1432 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

e7e4c469 1436 Bug fixes:
1437 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1438 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1439 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1440
455b342e 14415.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1442
4ffa3785 1443 Bug fixes:
1444 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1445 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1446 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1447 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1448 tests.
2f6049f2 1449 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1450 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1451 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1452 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1453 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1454 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1455 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1456 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1457 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1458 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1459 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1460 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1461 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1462
371c6f1a 1463 Refactoring / cleanups:
1464 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1465 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1466 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1467 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1468 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1469 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1470 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1471
1472 New features:
d05e45ce 1473 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1474 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1475 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1476 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1477 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1478 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1479 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1480 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1481 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1482 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1483 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1484 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1485 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1486 the request.
371c6f1a 1487
1fe85999 1488 Documentation:
1489 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1490 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1491 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1492 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1498 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1499 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1500 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1501 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1502 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1503 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1504 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1505 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1506 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1507 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1508 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1509
a375a206 1510 New features:
1511 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1512 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1513 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1514 URI.

3c9b6867 1518 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1519 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1520 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1521 applications.
655dfc2a 1522 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1523 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1524 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1525 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1526 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1527 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1528 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1529 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1530 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1531 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1532 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1533 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1534 - Action methods named default and index fixed.
3c9b6867 1535
d58edd2a 1536 New features:
655dfc2a 1537 - Use ~ as prefix for plugins or action classes which are located in
1538 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1539 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1540 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1541 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1542 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1543
371c6f1a 1544 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1545 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1546 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1547 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1548 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1549 error message.
1550 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1551 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1552 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1553 Fixes RT#47366
1554 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1555 again in Catalyst::Test

545e1e3a 1572 loading
f66edc15 1573 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1574 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1575 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1576 later on
dd97c1ac 1577 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1578 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1585 (with attributes) can be used in / composed from Moose roles.
fd4d9ff7 1586 - Allow the generation of cookies with the HTTPOnly flag set
1587 in Catalyst::Engine (kmx)

1591 _controller_actions to avoid name clashes with application
1592 controller naming. (random)

545e1e3a 1594 Fixed by 349cda in Moose 0.78
3cd3bc6a 1595 - Fix deprecation message for Catalyst::Dispatcher to refer
545e1e3a 1596 to the class actually calling the deprecated method. RT#45741

545e1e3a 1602 passed into $c->uri_for as Args/CaptureArgs
8317b3d1 1603 - Fix development server so that $c->engine->env returns the correct
545e1e3a 1604 environment
1605 - Require Moose 0.78 to fix metaclass incompatibility issues
c98492ae 1606 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1607 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1608 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1609 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1610 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1611 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1612 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1613 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1614 parse_on_demand is on
33d61a3b 1615
5f3fc036 16165.80003 2009-04-29 16:23:53
eaae9a92 1617 - Various POD tweaks. (hdp, dandv)
545e1e3a 1618 - Fix formatting error in the regex fallback warning.
37eaceaf 1619 - Convert the dispatcher's and restarter engine's BUILD method to

545e1e3a 1625 parents at all.
d0003a28 1626 - Turn off test aggregation by default. Only aggregate if the
e262f38e 1627 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1628 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1629 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1630 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1631 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1632 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1633 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1634 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1635 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass
545e1e3a 1636 incompatibility issues in some cases.

545e1e3a 1643 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1644 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1645 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass

1694 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1695 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

545e1e3a 1738 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1739 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1740 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace

1955 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1956 throw warnings for two reasons:
1957 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
1958 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1959 instead
df3956bf 1960 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1961 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1962 method with a regex as the argument
