e2aa4a21 35.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
4 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
5 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
6 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
7 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 8 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
9 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
10 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 11
522134af 125.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
13 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
14 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
15 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
16 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 17
01733d0f 185.90042 - 2013-06-14
19 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
20 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 21 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
22 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
23 plugin
24 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
25 ask for encoding
26 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
27 caused trouble.
01733d0f 28
c287088e 295.90041 - 2013-06-14
30 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
31 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
32 this fixes all of them.
33 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
34 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
35 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
36 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
37 number decimals
38 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
39
c8d9e6f4 405.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 41 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
42 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
43 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 44 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
701e20e5 45 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on perl 5.17.11
46 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 47 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
48 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 49 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
50 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 51 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 52 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
53 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
54 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
55 termination).
8275d3b9 56 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
57 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
58 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
59 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
60 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
61 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 62 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
63 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
64 for more.
d18964f7 65 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 66
f653d2c8 675.90030 - 2013-04-12
68 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
69 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
70 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 71 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
72 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
73 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
74 resolve manually.
18df061a 75 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
76 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
77 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 78 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 79 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
80 - smarter valiation around action attributes.
5490e075 81
825.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 83 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
84 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
85 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
86 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
87 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
88 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 89 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
90 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
91 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
92 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 93 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 94 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 95 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 96 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 97
dbacbce4 985.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
07ec95ca 99 - Fix for perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
2fe6ed83 100 - Fix for perl 5.8. RT#61122
8c848c33 101 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on perl5.8
102 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 103
02f4beca 1045.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
105 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
106 HTTP::Message.
107
d6ae5104 1085.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 109 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 110
111 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
112 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
113
114 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
115
116 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
117 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
118
119 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
120
0df490ef 121 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
122 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
123 of request or response classes.
124
f0580bff 1255.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 126 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
127 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 128 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 129 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 130 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 131 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
132 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
133 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
134 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
135
cfdd890d 1365.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 137 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 138 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
139 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
140 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 141
f444811b 1425.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
143
258733f1 144 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
145 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
146
aa3897db 1475.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
148
149 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
150 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
151 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
152 of Catalyst.
153
1545.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
155
eff60019 156 New features:
157 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
158
a7d2a530 159 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 160 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
161 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
162
40c06ae4 163 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
164 are supplied.
165
166 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
167 top level config.
a7d2a530 168
b334a4de 169 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
170
171 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
172
3239be86 1735.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
174
57746b80 175 Distribution META.yml changes:
176 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
177 mis-parses from the documentation.
178 - x_authority key added.
179
9a649d25 180 Bug fixes:
181 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
182 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
183
1e089329 184 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
185 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
186 is less than helpful.
187
38e43e65 188 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
189 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
190 in bleadperl. RT#76437
191
2037f03f 192 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 193 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
194
d8ccdd9d 195 Documentation:
196 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
197 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
198 directly.
199 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 200 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 201 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 202
2114ee9f 2035.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
204
f7ac80ef 205 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 206 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
207 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
208 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
209 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
210 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
211 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
212 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 213 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
214 applications.
df894348 215 - --background option for the server script now only closes
216 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
217 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 218 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
219 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 220 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
221 callback.
f7ac80ef 222
fed36d61 2235.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 224
0c17b66d 225 Bug fixes:
226 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
227 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
228 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
229 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
230
8d196862 2315.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
232
0607947f 233 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 234 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
235 refactoring.
236
0607947f 237 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
238 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
239 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
240 included when not running from a checkout.
241
80267996 242 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
243
8529a7ea 244 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 245 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
246 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 247
d0cacee7 248 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
249
af09d56c 2505.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
251
d0cfd993 252 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 253 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 254 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
255 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
256
257 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
258 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
259 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
260
261 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 262 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 263 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
264 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
265
266 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
267
0aba7d92 268 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 269 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
270 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
271 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
272 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
273 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
274
d0cfd993 275 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 276 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 277 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
278 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
279
e6bcfe8e 280 Tests:
3d2c4feb 281 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 282
e1e5366d 283 Documentation:
284 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
285 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
286 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
287
e6bcfe8e 288 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
289 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
290 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
291
00341d81 2925.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
293
0d7bf3a9 294 New features:
295 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
296 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
297 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
298 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
299 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
300
1ce9c7f6 301 Bug fixes:
302 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 303 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
304 over that.
a465926f 305 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
306 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
307 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 308
4c21ba3b 3095.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
310
27b0a436 311 New features:
312 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
313 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
314 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
315 get them passed through to the application.
316
d685f38e 317 Doumentation:
318 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
319 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
320 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
321 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
322
f4de8c99 323 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 324 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
325 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
326 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
327 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
328 a value.
329 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
330 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
331 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 332
c7250231 333 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
334 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
335
849b1b24 3365.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
337
ab6c6d3d 338 New features:
339
340 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
341 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
342 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
343 whereas before you had to say:
344 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
345 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
346 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
347 the two.
348
cf49ace4 349 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
350 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
351 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
352 scripts in the application.
353 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
354 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
355 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
356 otherwise).
357
ab6c6d3d 358 Documentation:
359
360 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
361 to avoid confusion
362 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
363 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
364 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
365 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
366 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
367 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
368 and provide an alternative.
369
4ec26b6c 3705.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
371
65420d46 372 Bug fixes:
373
374 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
375 MyApp->engine_class.
376
a253d527 3775.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 378 Bug fixes:
379
380 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
381
e95b2b49 382 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
383 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
384 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
385 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
386 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
387 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
388
fabe0bc6 389 Enhancements:
390
391 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
392 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
393
5cb939e8 394 Backward compatibility fixes:
395
396 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
397 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
398
14eb7697 399 Documentation fixes:
400
401 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
402 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 403
d536010b 404 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 405
824a5eb0 406 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
407
836a51a2 4085.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 409 Backward compatibility fixes:
410
411 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
412 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
413 circumstances.
414 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
415
c47cd2ce 416 Documentation fixes:
417
418 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
419 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
420 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
421
3143ee5f 4225.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
423
424 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
425 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
426
427 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
428
429 Cut another release.

c20710a1 435 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 436
437 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 438
2f3f09d4 439 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 440
2f3f09d4 441 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
442 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
443 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 444
2f3f09d4 445 Documentation:
72697c1d 446
2f3f09d4 447 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
448 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 449
2f3f09d4 450 Changes:
cb1e348b 451
2f3f09d4 452 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
453 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
454 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 455
cfb5d52a 4565.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 457
458 Backward compatibility fixes:
459
460 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
461 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
462
463 Bug fixes:
464
ab4df9f8 465 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
466 been made immutable.
467
0d47e040 468 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
469 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
470 example) Coro is loaded.
471
472 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
473 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
474
475 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
476 using MooseX::Deamonize
477
478 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
479 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
480 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
481 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
482 deployed in these environments.
483
c79bd3b0 484 Enhancements:
485
486 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
487 the remote request.
0d47e040 488
489 Documentation:
490 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
491 file for your application.
492
493 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
494 engines clarified.
495
496 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 497 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 498 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
499
b40baecd 5005.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
501
f899107d 502 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 503 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
504 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
505
506 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
507
e3557c86 508 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
509 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 510
511 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
512 IO::Handle's behaviour.
513
514 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
515 was not breaking out correctly
516
f899107d 517 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
518 to also work in the $c->component method.
519
5ff374b5 520 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
521 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
522 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
523 mode.
2e4a8275 524 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 525
52d65afe 526 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
527
528 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
529
530 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
531 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
532 names.
533
534 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
535
1f440f55 5365.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
537
538 Bug fixes:
539 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
540 not being installed.
541
542 Refactoring:
543 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
544 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
545 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
546
aceee8b5 5475.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
548
2cd94c07 549 Bug fixes:
550 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
551
552 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
553 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
554 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 555
2cd94c07 556 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 557
2cd94c07 558 Known problems:
559 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
560 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
561 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
562 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 563
2cd94c07 564 Documentation:
565 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
566 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 567
07608083 5685.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 569
570 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 571 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
572 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
573 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
574 returning true.
575 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
576
0fd00e7b 577 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
578 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
579 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
580
9bf423ee 581 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
582 in Catalyst::execute
583
584 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
585 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
586 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
587
588 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
589 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
590 (e.g. /account/*)
591
592 New features:
593 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
594 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
595
596 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
597 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
598 developers without changing their application code.
599
45cab07f 6005.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
601
718e6314 602 Bug fixes:
603 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
604 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
605 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
606 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
607 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
608
6ca73485 609 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
610 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
611
7258c943 6125.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
613
614 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
615
616 Removed features:
617
618 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
619 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
620 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
621 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
622 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
623 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
624 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
625
626 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
627 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
628 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
629 class, please tell us *now*.
630
94edbd2c 6315.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
632
8865ee12 633 New features:
634 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
635 title.
2af2a5bf 636 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
637 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
638 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
639 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
640 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
641 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 642
c046f519 643 Bug fixes:
644 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
645 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 646 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
647 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
648 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
649 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
650 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 651 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 652 failing case.
efc2aac0 653 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
654 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
655 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
656 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
657 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
658 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
659 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
660 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 661
fa325a7d 662 Documentation:
663 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
664 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
665
47990d3f 6665.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
667
668 New features:
4d723d12 669 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
670 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
671 confused.
672
47990d3f 673 Warning fixes:
674 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 675 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
676
b2910653 6775.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
678
808db1d6 679 Bug fixes:
680 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
681
7f891e1e 682 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
683 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
684
b2910653 685 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
686
d1672c76 6875.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 688
689 Bug fixes:
690 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
691
03235666 6925.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
693
2afd1ea3 694 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 695 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
696 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
697 load Utils before MyApp.pm
698
699 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
700 application
701
702 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
703
2afd1ea3 704 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
705 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
706 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
707 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
708 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 709
1f94dc3a 710 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
711 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 712
9c64b93a 713 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
714 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
715 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
716
ab83907b 717 Refactoring:
718 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
719 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
720
721 Documentation:
722 - Fix some typos
723
724 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI
725
726
cba60982 7275.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
728
13c565fe 729 New features:
730 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
731 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
732 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
733 the default action creation.
734
f5325631 735 Bug fixes:
736 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
737 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 738 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
739 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 740 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 741 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
742 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 743
744 Documentation:
745 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
746 point.
f8a54681 747 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
748 values.
f73be6d2 749 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 750
7aba3b2d 7515.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
752
753 Bug fixes:
754 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
755 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
756 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
757 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
758 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
759
760 New features:
761 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
762 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
763
764 Documentation:
765 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
766 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
767 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
768 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
769
e3a7414d 7705.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
771
46b58c90 772 Bug fixes:
671123ba 773 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
774 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
775 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 776 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
777 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 778 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
779 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 780 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 781
0319ec68 782 New features:
783 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
784 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
785 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
786 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 787 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
788 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 789 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 790 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 791
8fa9321c 792 Documentation:
793 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
794 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
795
1f52c1d2 796 Cleanups:
797 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
798 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
799 $Catalyst::VERSION.
800
14a1ceef 8015.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
802
025d09f9 803 New features:
804 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
805 the content type and content length if available.
806
13311c16 807 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 808 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 809 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
810 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
811 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
812 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 813 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 814 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
815 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 816 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
817 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 818 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
819 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
820 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 821
13e46699 822 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 823 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
824 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 825 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
826 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 827
d5c5d96f 8285.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
829
52e23ad4 830 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 831 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 832 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 833
1bebcac6 8345.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
835
836 New features:
837 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
838 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
839
f0bb41af 8405.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
841
2689f8a4 842 Bug fixed:
843 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
844 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
845 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
846 which should not be encoded.
847 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
848 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
849
850 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
851 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
852 any set of args/captures.
853
f54950f5 854 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
855 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
856
0ff92c67 857 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
858 removed.
c2f4efce 859
860 Documentation:
0ff92c67 861 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path
862 for applications.
863 - Various minor typo fixes.
c2f4efce 864
4113e1bb 865 New features:
866 - Allow passing additional arguments to action constructors.
867
c6e5058f 8685.80018 2010-01-12 22:24:20
869
ca78941c 870 Bug fixed:
871 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
872 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 873 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 874
c9ec25f8 875 Documentation:
876 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.
c8083f4e 877 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 878
955d6da6 879 Deprecations:
880 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
881 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
882 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();
883
45b607ab 8845.80017 2010-01-10 02:27:29
885
1d3a0700 886 Documentation:
887 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
888 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
889 MyApp::View::HTML).
890
e1d59dc4 891 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 892 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 893 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
894 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 895 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
896 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
897 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 898 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
899 argv key in the options hash.
900 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
901 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
902 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 903 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
904 versions >= 0.93_01

3f07296e 908 Cleanups:
909 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
910 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
911 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
912 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
913 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

e66329da 918
b42b9094 919 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
920 encoding test controller.
e66329da 921
922 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
923
82701bda 924 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
925 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 926 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
927 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
928 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 929 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 930 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 931 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
932 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
933 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
934 URI.
754e86c6 935 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 936
c96cdcef 937 New features:
e66329da 938
c96cdcef 939 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
940 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
941 less packed with information of no use.

0ab4f753 9475.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 948 Bug fixes:
949 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
950 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
951 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 952 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 953
954 Documentation:
955 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ef546d1e 9595.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 960 Bug fixes:
961 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
962 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
963 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
964 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
965 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 966 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 967 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
968 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
969 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 970 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
971 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
972 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
973 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 974 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 975 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 976
2b3bb280 977 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 985
986 Bug fixes:
987 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
988 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
989 on the old behaviour.
990
991 Refactoring / cleanups:
992 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
993 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
994
568e11a2 9955.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
996
9f16fdf2 997 Bug fixes:
998 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
999 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1000 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1001 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1002 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1003 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1004 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1005 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1006 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1007 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1008 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1009 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1010 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1011 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1012 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 1013 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
1014 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1015 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1016 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1017
d71da6fe 1018 Documentation:
1019 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1020 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1021 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1022 deprecated and causes warnings).
1023 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1024 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1025 in the correct order.
1026 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1027 context.
08a2c908 1028 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1029 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1030 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1031
ab86b480 1032 New features:
1033 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1034 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1035 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1036 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1037 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1038 distributions
10d77181 1039 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1040 exception classes need to implement.
1041 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1042 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1043 use it.
9f16fdf2 1044
647a3de1 1045 Refactoring / cleanups:
1046 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1047 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1048 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1049 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1050 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1051 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1052 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1056 Bug fixes:
1057 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1058 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1059 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1060 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1061 method.
1062 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1063 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1064 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1065
1066 Documentation:
85fc6206 1067 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1068 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1069 warnings.
297ff4ce 1070
1071 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1072 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1073 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1074 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1075 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1076 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

d367bfc9 1083 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1084 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1085 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1086 is returned to 'actions'.
1087 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1088 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1089
1090 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1091 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1092 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1093
1094 Tests:
1095 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1096 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1097 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1103 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1104 installed in @INC.

1108 Bug fixes:
1109 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.

4ffa3785 1122 Bug fixes:
1123 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1124 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1125 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1126 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1127 tests.
2f6049f2 1128 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1129 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1130 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1131 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1132 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1133 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1134 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1135 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1136 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1137 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1138 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1139 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1140 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1141
371c6f1a 1142 Refactoring / cleanups:
1143 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1144 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1145 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1146 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1147 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1148 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1149 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

1151 New features:
d05e45ce 1152 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1153 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1154 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1155 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1156 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1157 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1158 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1159 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1160 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1161 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1162 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1163 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1164 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1165 the request.

1179 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1180 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1181 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1182 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1183 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1184 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1185 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1186 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1187 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1188
a375a206 1189 New features:
1190 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1191 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1192 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1

3c9b6867 1197 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1198 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1199 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1200 applications.
655dfc2a 1201 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1202 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1203 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1204 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1205 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1206 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1207 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1208 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1209 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1210 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1219 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1220 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1221 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1222
371c6f1a 1223 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1224 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1225 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1226 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1227 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1228 error message.
1229 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1230 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1231 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1232 Fixes RT#47366

545e1e3a 1251 loading
f66edc15 1252 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1253 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1254 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1255 later on
dd97c1ac 1256 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1257 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

c98492ae 1285 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1286 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1287 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1288 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1289 to report 'Unknown Error'

b8123bba 13285.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1329 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1330 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.
1331 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1332 configuration in your application.

1373 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1374 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

545e1e3a 1417 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1418 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1419 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1420 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate

1634 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1635 throw warnings for two reasons:
1636 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
1637 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1638 instead
df3956bf 1639 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1640 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1641 method with a regex as the argument
