f65b6e93 35.90115 - 2017-05-01
4 - fixes for silent bad behavior in Catalyst::ScriptRole and 'ensure_class_loaded'
5 (hobbs++)
6 - do not require MXRWO if Moose is new enough to have cored it (ether++)
7 - documentation improvements (ether++)
3c1716e3 8 - Encoding documentation improvements (colinnewell++)
f65b6e93 9
7213dd01 105.90114 - 2016-12-19
11 - Fixed regression introduced in the last version (5.90113) which caused
12 application to hang when the action private name contained a string
13 like 'foo/bar..html'. If you are running 5.90113 you should consider this
14 a required update.
59e4fb5d 15 - Tweaked travis CI script.
7213dd01 16
ffe72ea6 175.90113 - 2016-12-15
18 - Fixed issue with $controller->action_for when targeting an action in
19 a namespace nested inside the current controller and the current controller
20 is a 'root' controller.
21 - Enhanced $controller->action_for so that you can reference the 'parent'
22 controller via relative path (eg ->action_for('../foo')).
23 - Backcompat fix for people that made the mistake of doing $c->{stash}
d7325e05 24 - Sort controllers in setup_actions so cross-controller precedence is
25 consistent.
26
a050c28a 275.90112 - 2016-07-25
0fb9642d 28 - Spelling fixes from Debian group.
a050c28a 29 - Fixed regression introduced in last release that caused the code to crap out
30 if you set the encoding to 'undef'.
31
bde75a9e 325.90111 - 2016-07-20
33 - Improved documentation around some of the unicode changes; tests (melmothx++)
34
de2e9a6f 355.90110 - 2016-07-20
103f2d96 36 - Better catching of HTTP style exceptions so that you can reliable use one to
37 override many core method.
38 - Documention on better ways to catch and handle Unicode errors
39 - We now check the unicode in your URL request queries and raise an error if the
40 check fails. This was done to be consistent with what we do in other parts of
41 the code (such as in args, or POSTed parameters). If this breaks your code in
42 ways you don't want to fix, you may disable this using the global configuration
43 setting, "do_not_check_query_encoding".
44 - Removed configuration setting, "decode_query_using_global_encoding" since it no
45 longer does anything useful. Query decoding follows from whatever you set the
46 global encoding to, unless you specify an alternative or to not decode.
47
5df9a4c5 485.90106 - 2016-07-05
49 - Fixed regression in debug screen rendering of the private names in chained
50 actions caused by commit 5dd46e24eedec447bdfbc4061ed683b5a17a7b0c.
51 - Fixed incorrect date entered for the release of 5.90105
52 - Fixed some incorrect code in a test case that might be causing test fails
53 in some configurations.
54
555.90105 - 2016-06-08
2d4da72c 56 - Tweak some test cases to try and prevent them from failing in limited cases.
57 - Changed how we compose traits onto the response, request, and stats class so
58 that we compose just once at setup time (performance optimization). Also added
59 a debug screen at startup to display composed classes to help with debugging.
cc7af078 60 - Fixed a regressed caused by the changes we made to the way ->state works so that
fd1fe4c7 61 now when you forward to an action and that action throws an exception, $c->state
cc7af078 62 is set to 0, instead of the value of the exeption (this is to be as indicated by
fd1fe4c7 63 the documentation). (cventers++ for reported bug and test case).
18adb1ed 64 - Changed the code that detects if you try to set HTTP headers after headers are
65 finalized to not warn if you are just requested the response header state. Tweaked
66 this error message a bit to help people understand it.
2d4da72c 67
163b3de6 685.90104 - 2016-04-04
69 - Merged pull request #131, fix for noisy debug logs when used type constraints
70 in your actions. Additional changes to the developer debug screen output to
71 improve reporting details.
72 - Merged pull request #133, fix for case when a file upload filename contains
73 wide characters which caused the filename to not appear in the uploads hash.
74
ed60d917 755.90103 - 2015-11-12
4c71cf1b 76 - More documentation fixes (thanks to the debian maintainers and melmothx++)
77 - Fixed the way we parse subroutine attribute values to fix a regression
78 introduced in 5.90102. This is a recommended upgrade (tsibley++, mst++)
79 - Fixed regression around auto actions that escape by throwing an exception
80 which was introduced in the last release.
ed906c97 81 - Bumped namespace::autoclean dep to latest since tests require -except
4c71cf1b 82
b8ef930c 835.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 84 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
85 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
86 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 87 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 88 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
89 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 90 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e459bd03 91 - $c->state is now preserved over actions in a chain, and across begin,
92 auto, ->forward and ->detach.
e43b00f9 93
d2995a76 945.90101 - 2015-09-04
95 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
96 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
97
5e7e6b27 985.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 99 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
100 with type constraints.
101 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 102 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 103 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
104 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 105 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 106 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 107
a1dba4cf 1085.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 109 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
110 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
111 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 112 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
113 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
114 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
115 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 116
ed5a562b 1175.90096 - 2015-07-27
118 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
119 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
120 to define behavior better.
121
3f955f48 1225.90095 - 2015-07-27
123 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
124 on CPAN testers.
125 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
126 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
127 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
128 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 129
b0ff1be8 1305.90094 - 2015-07-24
131 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
132 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
133 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 134 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
135 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 136 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
137 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 138 - Merged Pull Requests:
ddbc0a77 139 - https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/95

f3311a32 144 - https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/107
b0ff1be8 145
80ba671f 1465.90093 - 2015-05-29
147 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
148 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
149
5af5f973 1505.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 151 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
152 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 153 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
154 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
155 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
156 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 157
1585.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 159 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
160 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
161 even though they were actually created).
162
7dac038c 1635.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 164 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
165 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
166 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
167 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
168 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
169
630ad67c 1705.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 171 - Added swanky github badges.
172 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 173 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
174 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
175 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
176 retrieved.
177
718a1619 1785.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 179 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
180 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 181 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
182 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
183 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 184
1592e3ff 1855.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 186 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
187 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
188 test fail.
189 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
190 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
191 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
192 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
193 and imported types.
d9f0a350 194 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
195 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
196 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 197 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
198 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
199 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
200 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
201 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 202 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
203 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
204 component.
ec4d7259 205 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
206 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
207 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
208 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
209 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 210 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
211 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 212 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
213 they are combined.
3e560748 214 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
215 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
216 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
217 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
218 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
219 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 220 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
221 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
222 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 223 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
224 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 225 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 226 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 227 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
228 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
229 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 230
2315.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 232 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 233 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 234 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
235 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 236 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
237 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 238 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
239 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 240 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 241 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 242
9f3e69ee 2435.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 244 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
245 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
246 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
247 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
248 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
249 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
250 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 251 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
252 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 253 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
254 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
255 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 256
8479713c 2575.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 258 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
259 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 260 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 261 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 262 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 263 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 264 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 265 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 266 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
267 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
268 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
269 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
270 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 271
2725.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 273 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 274 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 275 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
276 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
277 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
278 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 279
7131401a 2805.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 281 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
282 to prevent it happening again.
283
7131401a 2845.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 285 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
286 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
287 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
288 test case to prevent regressions.
289
7131401a 2905.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 291 - Minor documentation corrections
292 - Make the '79 development series stable
293
d2000928 2945.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
295 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
296 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 297 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 298 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 299
3005.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 301 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
302 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
303 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 304 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
305 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
306 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 307
b274486c 3085.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 309 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 310 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
311 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
312 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
313 note posted a few months ago.
314 - Added my name to the contributors list
315
6dcc5307 3165.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
317 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 318 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
319 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
320 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
321 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
322 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
323 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
324 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
325 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
326 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
327 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
328 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 329
c017b11b 3305.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 331 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
332 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
333 global variable.
334 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 335 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
336 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
337 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
338 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
339 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 340 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 341 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 342 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 343 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
344 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 345
501605db 3465.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
347 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
348 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
349
bd4b086b 3505.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
351 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
352 changes.
353
3545.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 355 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
356 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 357 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 358 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 359 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 360 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
361 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 362 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
363 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
364 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 365 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 366 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
367 correct if incorrect :)
368 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
369 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 370 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 371 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 372 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
373 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 374 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 375 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
376 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
377 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 378 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 379 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 380 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
381 you want to use.
342d2169 382 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
383 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
384 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
385 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
386 request uses.
460bb45b 387
a24232f9 3885.90079 - 2015-01-02
389 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
390 rt #101243)
391 - updated year in copyright notices
392
b94f8e72 3935.90078 - 2014-12-30
394 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 395 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 396 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
397 trouble. (davewood++);
398 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
399 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
400 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
401
ee2c12fd 4025.90077 - 2014-11-18
403 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
404 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
405 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
406 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
407 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
408
9c86666a 4095.90076 - 2014-11-13
410 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
411 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
412 HTTP Exception middleware.
413
0810283f 4145.90075 - 2014-10-06
415 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
416 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
417 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
418 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
419 you really need to review this exploit.
420
c027f9c4 4215.90074 - 2014-10-01
422 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
423
2be363b7 4245.90073 - 2014-09-23
425 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
426 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
427 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 428 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
429 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 430 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 431
4f96d61c 4325.90072 - 2014-09-15
433 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
434 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
435 so you can go to hunt it out.
436
d5765d73 4375.90071 - 2014-08-10
438 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
439 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
440 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
441 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
442 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 443 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 444
b96bd9f1 4455.90070 - 2014-08-07
446 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
447
1893c194 4485.90069_004
449 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
450 certain tests. No other changes.
451
310c2a39 4525.90069_003
453 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 454 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
455 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
456 a bit.
457 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
458 anything new.
eae29f6e 459 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
460 type response.
461 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
462 improvements.
9c38cb50 463
91789f94 4645.90069_002
3e6ee020 465 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
466 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
467 questions or problems!
468 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
469 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
470 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
471 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 472 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
473 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
474 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 475 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
476 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
477
1b526dcc 4785.90069_001
41bf18c5 479 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
480 - documentation and test fixes
481
8f3c0676 4825.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 483 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
484 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
485 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
486 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 487 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 488 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 489 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 490
13adef05 4915.90064 - 2014-05-05
492 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
493 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
494
4955.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 496 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
497 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
498 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
499 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 500 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
501 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 502 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
503 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
504 configuration.
505 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 506s
5075.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 508 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
509 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
510
c8ad8cbc 5115.90061 - 2014-03-10
512 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
513 introduced by a change in December.
514
de9bcba0 5155.90060 - 2014-02-07
516 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
517
78acc1f7 518
26b42801 5195.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 520 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 521 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 522 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 523 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
524 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 525
b8534a44 5265.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 527 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
528 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 5295.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 530 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
531 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
532 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
533 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
534 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 535 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 536 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 537 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
538 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 539 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
540 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
541 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 542
7af15a33 5435.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 544 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 545 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
546 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 547 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
548 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
549 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 550
97e0c7c5 5515.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 552 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
553 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
554 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
555 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
556 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
557 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
558 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
559 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 560 to work much better.
561 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
562 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
563 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
564 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
565 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
566 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
567 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
568 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 569 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
570 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 571
78acc1f7 5725.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
573 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
574 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
575 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
576 will be broken.
577
5bb2a5b3 5785.90053 - 2013-12-21
579 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
580 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
581 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
582 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
583 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
584 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 585
7d01797b 5865.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 587
02352a28 588 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
589 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 590 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
591 does not exist.
592 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 593 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 594 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
595
596 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
597 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
598 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
599 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
600
3d3ea779 601 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
602 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 603 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 604 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
605 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 606
707988f8 6075.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 608 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 609 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
610
31bd6aec 6115.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 612 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
613 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
614 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 615
55119d7b 616 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
617 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
618 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
619
620 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
621 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
622 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
623 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 624
a61b6983 6255.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
626 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 627 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 628
6295.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 630 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
631 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
632 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
633 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
634 HTML forms.
ba1734df 635 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
636 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
637 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 638 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
639 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
640 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
641 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
642 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 643
fd5fb3a8 6445.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 645 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 646 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 647 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 648 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
649 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
650 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
651 those keys already exist). Keys added:
652 - plack.request.query
653 - plack.request.body
654 - plack.request.merged
655 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 656 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 657 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
658 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
659 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
660 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
661 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
662 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
663 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 664 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
665 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
666 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 667 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
668 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
669 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
670 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
671 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
672 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 673 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
674 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 675
b3070177 6765.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
677 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 678 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 679 updates, including:
680 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
681 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
682 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
683 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
684 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
685 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
686 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
687 a development setup (ether++)
688
e2aa4a21 6895.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
690 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
691 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
692 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
693 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 694 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
695 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
696 case t/data_handler.t
e2aa4a21 697
522134af 6985.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
699 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
700 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
701 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
702 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 703
01733d0f 7045.90042 - 2013-06-14
705 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
706 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 707 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
708 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
709 plugin
710 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
711 ask for encoding
712 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
713 caused trouble.
01733d0f 714
c287088e 7155.90041 - 2013-06-14
716 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
717 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
718 this fixes all of them.
719 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
720 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
721 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
722 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
723 number decimals
724 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
725
c8d9e6f4 7265.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 727 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
728 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
729 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 730 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 731 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 732 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 733 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
734 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 735 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
736 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 737 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 738 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
739 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
740 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
741 termination).
8275d3b9 742 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
743 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
744 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
745 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
746 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
747 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 748 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
749 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
750 for more.
d18964f7 751 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 752
f653d2c8 7535.90030 - 2013-04-12
754 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
755 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
756 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 757 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
758 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
759 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
760 resolve manually.
18df061a 761 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
762 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
763 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 764 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 765 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 766 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 767
7685.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 769 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
770 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
771 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
772 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
773 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
774 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 775 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
776 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
777 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
778 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 779 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 780 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 781 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 782 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 783
dbacbce4 7845.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 785 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
786 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
787 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8
8c848c33 788 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 789
02f4beca 7905.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
791 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
792 HTTP::Message.
793
d6ae5104 7945.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 795 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 796
797 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
798 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
799
800 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
801
802 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
803 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
804
805 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
806
0df490ef 807 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
808 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
809 of request or response classes.
810
f0580bff 8115.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 812 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
813 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 814 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 815 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 816 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 817 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
818 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
819 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
820 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
821
cfdd890d 8225.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 823 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090

826 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 827
f444811b 8285.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
829
258733f1 830 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
831 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
832
aa3897db 8335.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
834
835 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
836 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
837 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
838 of Catalyst.
839
8405.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
841
eff60019 842 New features:
843 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
844
a7d2a530 845 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 846 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
847 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
848
40c06ae4 849 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
850 are supplied.
851
852 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
853 top level config.
a7d2a530 854
b334a4de 855 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
856
857 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
858
3239be86 8595.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
860
57746b80 861 Distribution META.yml changes:
862 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
863 mis-parses from the documentation.
864 - x_authority key added.
865
9a649d25 866 Bug fixes:
867 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
868 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
869
1e089329 870 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
871 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
872 is less than helpful.
873
38e43e65 874 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
875 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
876 in bleadperl. RT#76437
877
2037f03f 878 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 879 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
880
d8ccdd9d 881 Documentation:
882 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
883 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
884 directly.
885 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 886 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 887 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 888
2114ee9f 8895.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
890
f7ac80ef 891 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 892 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
893 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
894 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
895 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
896 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
897 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
898 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 899 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
900 applications.
df894348 901 - --background option for the server script now only closes
902 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
903 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 904 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
905 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 906 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
907 callback.
f7ac80ef 908
fed36d61 9095.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 910
0c17b66d 911 Bug fixes:
912 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
913 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
914 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
915 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
916
8d196862 9175.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
918
0607947f 919 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 920 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
921 refactoring.
922
0607947f 923 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 924 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 925 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
926 included when not running from a checkout.
927
80267996 928 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
929
8529a7ea 930 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 931 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
932 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 933
d0cacee7 934 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
935
af09d56c 9365.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
937
d0cfd993 938 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 939 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 940 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
941 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
942
943 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
944 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
945 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
946
947 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 948 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 949 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
950 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
951
952 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
953
0aba7d92 954 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 955 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
956 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
957 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
958 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
959 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
960
d0cfd993 961 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 962 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 963 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
964 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
965
e6bcfe8e 966 Tests:
3d2c4feb 967 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 968
e1e5366d 969 Documentation:
970 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
971 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
972 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
973
e6bcfe8e 974 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
975 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
976 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
977
00341d81 9785.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
979
0d7bf3a9 980 New features:
981 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
982 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
983 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
984 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
985 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
986
1ce9c7f6 987 Bug fixes:
988 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 989 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
990 over that.
a465926f 991 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
992 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
993 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 994
4c21ba3b 9955.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
996
27b0a436 997 New features:
998 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
999 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
1000 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
1001 get them passed through to the application.
1002
4373973a 1003 Documentation:
d685f38e 1004 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
1005 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
1006 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
1007 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
1008
f4de8c99 1009 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 1010 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
1011 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
1012 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 1013 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 1014 a value.
1015 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
1016 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
1017 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 1018
c7250231 1019 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
1020 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
1021
849b1b24 10225.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
1023
ab6c6d3d 1024 New features:
1025
1026 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
1027 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
1028 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
1029 whereas before you had to say:
1030 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
1031 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
1032 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
1033 the two.
1034
cf49ace4 1035 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
1036 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
1037 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
1038 scripts in the application.
1039 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
1040 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
1041 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
1042 otherwise).
1043
ab6c6d3d 1044 Documentation:
1045
1046 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
1047 to avoid confusion
4373973a 1048 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 1049 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
1050 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
1051 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
1052 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
1053 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
1054 and provide an alternative.
1055
4ec26b6c 10565.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
1057
65420d46 1058 Bug fixes:
1059
1060 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
1061 MyApp->engine_class.
1062
a253d527 10635.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 1064 Bug fixes:
1065
4373973a 1066 - Make default body responses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
9c331634 1067
e95b2b49 1068 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
1069 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
1070 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
1071 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
1072 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
1073 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
1074
fabe0bc6 1075 Enhancements:
1076
1077 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
1078 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
1079
5cb939e8 1080 Backward compatibility fixes:
1081
1082 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
4373973a 1083 scripts which explicitly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
5cb939e8 1084
14eb7697 1085 Documentation fixes:
1086
1087 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
1088 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 1089
d536010b 1090 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 1091
824a5eb0 1092 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
1093
836a51a2 10945.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 1095 Backward compatibility fixes:
1096
1097 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
1098 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
1099 circumstances.
1100 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
1101
c47cd2ce 1102 Documentation fixes:
1103
1104 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
1105 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
1106 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

3143ee5f 11085.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
1109
1110 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
1111 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
1112
1113 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
1114
1115 Cut another release.

2f3f09d4 1122
1123 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1124
2f3f09d4 1125 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1126
2f3f09d4 1127 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1128 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1129 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1130
2f3f09d4 1131 Documentation:
72697c1d 1132
2f3f09d4 1133 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1134 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1135
2f3f09d4 1136 Changes:
cb1e348b 1137
2f3f09d4 1138 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1139 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1140 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1141
cfb5d52a 11425.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 1143
1144 Backward compatibility fixes:
1145
1146 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1147 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1148
1149 Bug fixes:
1150
ab4df9f8 1151 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1152 been made immutable.
1153
0d47e040 1154 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1155 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1156 example) Coro is loaded.
1157
1158 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1159 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1160
1161 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1162 using MooseX::Deamonize
1163
1164 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1165 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1166 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1167 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1168 deployed in these environments.
1169
c79bd3b0 1170 Enhancements:
1171
1172 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1173 the remote request.
0d47e040 1174
1175 Documentation:
1176 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1177 file for your application.
1178
4373973a 1179 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1180 engines clarified.
1181
1182 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1183 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1184 use the normal request function against a local server instead.

1187
f899107d 1188 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1189 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1190 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1191
1192 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1193
e3557c86 1194 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1195 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1196
1197 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1198 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1199
1200 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1201 was not breaking out correctly
1202
f899107d 1203 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1204 to also work in the $c->component method.
1205
5ff374b5 1206 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1207 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1208 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1209 mode.
2e4a8275 1210 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1211
52d65afe 1212 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1213
1214 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1215
1216 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1217 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1218 names.
1219
1220 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.

1f440f55 12225.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1223
1224 Bug fixes:
1225 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1226 not being installed.
1227
1228 Refactoring:
1229 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1230 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1231 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

2cd94c07 1235 Bug fixes:
1236 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1237
1238 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1239 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1240 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1241
2cd94c07 1242 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1243
2cd94c07 1244 Known problems:
1245 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1246 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1247 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1248 the new major version of Catalyst.

2cd94c07 1250 Documentation:
1251 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1252 of Catalyst has been much improved.

9bf423ee 1255
1256 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1257 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1258 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1259 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1260 returning true.
1261 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1262
0fd00e7b 1263 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1264 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1265 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1266
9bf423ee 1267 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1268 in Catalyst::execute
1269
1270 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1271 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1272 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1273
1274 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1275 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1276 (e.g. /account/*)
1277
1278 New features:
1279 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1280 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1281
1282 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1283 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1284 developers without changing their application code.
1285
45cab07f 12865.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1287
718e6314 1288 Bug fixes:
1289 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1290 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1291 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1292 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1293 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1294
6ca73485 1295 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1296 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1297
7258c943 12985.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1299
1300 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1301
1302 Removed features:
1303
1304 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1305 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1306 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1307 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1308 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1309 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1310 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1311
1312 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1313 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1314 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1315 class, please tell us *now*.
1316
94edbd2c 13175.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1318
8865ee12 1319 New features:
1320 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1321 title.
2af2a5bf 1322 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1323 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1324 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1325 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1326 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1327 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1328
c046f519 1329 Bug fixes:
1330 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1331 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1332 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1333 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1334 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1335 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1336 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1337 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1338 failing case.
efc2aac0 1339 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1340 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1341 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1342 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1343 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1344 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1345 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1346 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1347
fa325a7d 1348 Documentation:
1349 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1350 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1351
47990d3f 13525.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1353
1354 New features:
4d723d12 1355 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1356 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1357 confused.
1358
47990d3f 1359 Warning fixes:
1360 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1361 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1362
b2910653 13635.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1364
808db1d6 1365 Bug fixes:
1366 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1367
7f891e1e 1368 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1369 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1370
b2910653 1371 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1372
d1672c76 13735.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00

03235666 13785.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1379
2afd1ea3 1380 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1381 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1382 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1383 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1384
1385 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1386 application
1387
1388 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1389
2afd1ea3 1390 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1391 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1392 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1393 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1394 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1395
1f94dc3a 1396 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1397 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1398
9c64b93a 1399 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1400 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1401 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1402
ab83907b 1403 Refactoring:
1404 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1405 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1406
1407 Documentation:
1408 - Fix some typos

cba60982 14135.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1414
13c565fe 1415 New features:
1416 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1417 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1418 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1419 the default action creation.
1420
f5325631 1421 Bug fixes:
1422 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1423 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1424 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1425 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1426 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1427 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application

1430 Documentation:
1431 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1432 point.
f8a54681 1433 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1434 values.
f73be6d2 1435 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1436
7aba3b2d 14375.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1438
1439 Bug fixes:
1440 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1441 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1442 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1443 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1444 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1445
1446 New features:
1447 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1448 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1449
1450 Documentation:
1451 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1452 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1453 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1454 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1455

46b58c90 1458 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1459 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1460 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1461 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1462 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1463 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1464 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1465 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1466 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1467
0319ec68 1468 New features:
1469 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1470 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1471 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1472 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1473 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1474 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1475 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1476 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1477
8fa9321c 1478 Documentation:
1479 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1480 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1481
1f52c1d2 1482 Cleanups:
1483 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1484 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1485 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1486
14a1ceef 14875.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1488
025d09f9 1489 New features:
1490 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1491 the content type and content length if available.
1492
13311c16 1493 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1494 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1495 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1496 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1497 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1498 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1499 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1500 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1501 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1502 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1503 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1504 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1505 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1506 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1507
13e46699 1508 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1509 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1510 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1511 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1512 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1513
d5c5d96f 15145.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1515
52e23ad4 1516 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1517 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1518 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1519
1bebcac6 15205.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18

f0bb41af 15265.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1527
2689f8a4 1528 Bug fixed:
1529 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1530 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1531 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1532 which should not be encoded.
1533 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1534 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1535
1536 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1537 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1538 any set of args/captures.
1539
f54950f5 1540 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1541 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1542
0ff92c67 1543 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
1544 removed.

955d6da6 1565 Deprecations:
1566 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
1567 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
1568 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

1571
1d3a0700 1572 Documentation:
1573 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1574 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1575 MyApp::View::HTML).
1576
e1d59dc4 1577 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1578 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 1579 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
1580 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 1581 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
1582 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
1583 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1584 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1585 argv key in the options hash.
1586 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1587 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1588 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1589 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
1590 versions >= 0.93_01

1595 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1596 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1597 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1598 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1599 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

1611 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1612 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1613 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1614 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1615 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1616 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1617 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1618 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1619 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1620 URI.
754e86c6 1621 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630

c96cdcef 1623 New features:
e66329da 1624
c96cdcef 1625 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1626 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1627 less packed with information of no use.

ea72fece 1634 Bug fixes:
1635 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1636 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1637 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1638 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1639
1640 Documentation:
1641 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

5ab21903 1646 Bug fixes:
1647 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1648 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1649 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1650 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1651 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1652 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1653 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1654 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1655 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1656 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1657 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1658 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1659 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1660 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1661 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1662
2b3bb280 1663 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 1671
1672 Bug fixes:
1673 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1674 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1675 on the old behaviour.
1676
1677 Refactoring / cleanups:
1678 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1679 are deprecated and now issue warnings.

1682
9f16fdf2 1683 Bug fixes:
1684 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1685 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1686 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1687 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1688 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1689 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1690 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1691 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1692 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1693 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1694 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1695 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1696 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1697 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1698 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1699 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1700 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1701 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1702 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1703
d71da6fe 1704 Documentation:
1705 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1706 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1707 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1708 deprecated and causes warnings).
1709 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1710 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1711 in the correct order.
1712 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1713 context.
08a2c908 1714 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1715 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1716 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1717
ab86b480 1718 New features:
1719 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1720 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1721 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1722 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1723 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1724 distributions
10d77181 1725 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1726 exception classes need to implement.
1727 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1728 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1729 use it.
9f16fdf2 1730
647a3de1 1731 Refactoring / cleanups:
1732 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1733 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1734 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1735 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1736 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1737 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1738 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1742 Bug fixes:
1743 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1744 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1745 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1746 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1747 method.
1748 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1749 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1750 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1751

1755 warnings.
297ff4ce 1756
1757 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1758 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1759 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1760 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1761 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1762 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

d367bfc9 1769 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1770 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1771 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1772 is returned to 'actions'.
1773 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1774 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1775
1776 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1777 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1778 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1779
1780 Tests:
1781 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1782 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1783 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

9d59dde8 1787 Bug fixes:
1788 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1789 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1790 installed in @INC.

4ffa3785 1808 Bug fixes:
1809 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1810 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1811 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1812 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1813 tests.
2f6049f2 1814 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1815 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1816 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1817 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1818 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1819 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1820 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1821 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1822 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1823 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1824 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1825 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1826 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1827
371c6f1a 1828 Refactoring / cleanups:
1829 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1830 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1831 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1832 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1833 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1834 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1835 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

1839 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1840 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1841 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1842 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1843 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1844 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1845 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1846 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1847 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1848 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1849 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1850 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1851 the request.

1cad29ab 1868 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1869 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1870 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1871 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1872 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1873 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1874
a375a206 1875 New features:
1876 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1877 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1878 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1

3c9b6867 1883 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1884 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1885 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1886 applications.
655dfc2a 1887 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1888 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1889 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1890 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1891 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1892 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1893 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1894 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1895 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1896 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1905 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1906 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1907 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1908
371c6f1a 1909 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1910 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1911 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1912 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1913 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1914 error message.
1915 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1916 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1917 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1918 Fixes RT#47366

545e1e3a 1941 later on
dd97c1ac 1942 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1943 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

e262f38e 1992 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1993 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1994 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1995 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1996 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1997 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1998 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1999 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 2000 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 2008 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 2009 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
2010 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
2011 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 2012 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)

4cb5d29f 2015 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 2016 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.
4cb5d29f 2017 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 2018 configuration in your application.
2019 - Tests for this
05d79b22 2020 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
2021 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

02298d3a 2056 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 2057 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 2058 - Tests for this (radek)
2059 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
2060 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

2100 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 2101 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
2102 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 2103 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 2104 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
2105 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
4373973a 2106 subroutine attributes for action declarations with an alternate
545e1e3a 2107 syntax.
e7924bb5 2108 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
2109 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.

23195.7099_01 2008-06-25 22:36:00
2320 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2321 throw warnings for two reasons:
2322 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
2323 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2324 instead
df3956bf 2325 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2326 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2327 method with a regex as the argument
2328 - remove 0-length query string components so warnings aren't thrown (RT #36428)
2329 - Update HTTP::Body dep so that the uploadtmp config value will work (RT #22540)

2333 - Added the ability to remove parameters in req->uri_with() by passing in
2334 an undef value (RT #34782)
2335 - Added $c->go, to do an internal redispatch to another action, while retaining the
2336 contents of the stash
