a7d2a530 3 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 4 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
5 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
6
40c06ae4 7 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
8 are supplied.
9
10 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
11 top level config.
a7d2a530 12
3239be86 135.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
14
57746b80 15 Distribution META.yml changes:
16 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
17 mis-parses from the documentation.
18 - x_authority key added.
19
9a649d25 20 Bug fixes:
21 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
22 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
23
1e089329 24 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
25 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
26 is less than helpful.
27
38e43e65 28 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
29 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
30 in bleadperl. RT#76437
31
2037f03f 32 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 33 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
34
d8ccdd9d 35 Documentation:
36 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
37 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
38 directly.
39 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 40 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 41 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710

f7ac80ef 45 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 46 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
47 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
48 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
49 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
50 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
51 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
52 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 53 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
54 applications.
df894348 55 - --background option for the server script now only closes
56 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
57 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 58 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
59 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 60 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
61 callback.
f7ac80ef 62
fed36d61 635.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 64
0c17b66d 65 Bug fixes:
66 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
67 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
68 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
69 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
70
8d196862 715.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
72
0607947f 73 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 74 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
75 refactoring.
76
0607947f 77 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
78 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
79 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
80 included when not running from a checkout.
81
80267996 82 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
83
8529a7ea 84 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 85 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
86 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 87
af09d56c 885.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
89
d0cfd993 90 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 91 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 92 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
93 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
94
95 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
96 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
97 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
98
99 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 100 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 101 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
102 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
103
104 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
105
0aba7d92 106 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 107 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
108 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
109 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
110 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
111 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
112
d0cfd993 113 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 114 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 115 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
116 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
117
e6bcfe8e 118 Tests:
3d2c4feb 119 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 120
e1e5366d 121 Documentation:
122 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
123 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
124 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
125
e6bcfe8e 126 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
127 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
128 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
129
00341d81 1305.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
131
0d7bf3a9 132 New features:
133 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
134 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
135 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
136 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
137 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
138
1ce9c7f6 139 Bug fixes:
140 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 141 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
142 over that.
a465926f 143 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
144 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
145 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 146
4c21ba3b 1475.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
148
27b0a436 149 New features:
150 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
151 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
152 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
153 get them passed through to the application.
154
d685f38e 155 Doumentation:
156 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
157 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
158 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
159 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
160
f4de8c99 161 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 162 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
163 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
164 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
165 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
166 a value.
167 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
168 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
169 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 170
c7250231 171 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
172 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
173
849b1b24 1745.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
175
ab6c6d3d 176 New features:
177
178 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
179 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
180 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
181 whereas before you had to say:
182 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
183 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
184 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
185 the two.
186
cf49ace4 187 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
188 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
189 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
190 scripts in the application.
191 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
192 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
193 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
194 otherwise).
195
ab6c6d3d 196 Documentation:
197
198 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
199 to avoid confusion
200 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
201 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
202 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
203 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
204 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
205 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
206 and provide an alternative.
207
4ec26b6c 2085.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
209
65420d46 210 Bug fixes:
211
212 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
213 MyApp->engine_class.
214
a253d527 2155.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 216 Bug fixes:
217
218 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
219
e95b2b49 220 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
221 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
222 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
223 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
224 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
225 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
226
fabe0bc6 227 Enhancements:
228
229 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
230 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
231
5cb939e8 232 Backward compatibility fixes:
233
234 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
235 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
236
14eb7697 237 Documentation fixes:
238
239 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
240 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 241
d536010b 242 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 243
824a5eb0 244 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
245
836a51a2 2465.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 247 Backward compatibility fixes:
248
249 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
250 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
251 circumstances.
252 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
253
c47cd2ce 254 Documentation fixes:
255
256 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
257 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
258 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
259
3143ee5f 2605.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
261
262 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
263 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
264
265 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
266
267 Cut another release.

c20710a1 271 See Catalyst::Delta for the major changes in this release.
72697c1d 272
c20710a1 273 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 274
275 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 276
2f3f09d4 277 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 278
2f3f09d4 279 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
280 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
281 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 282
2f3f09d4 283 Documentation:
72697c1d 284
2f3f09d4 285 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
286 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 287
2f3f09d4 288 Changes:
cb1e348b 289
2f3f09d4 290 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
291 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
292 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 293
cfb5d52a 2945.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 295
296 Backward compatibility fixes:
297
298 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
299 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
300
301 Bug fixes:
302
ab4df9f8 303 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
304 been made immutable.
305
0d47e040 306 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
307 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
308 example) Coro is loaded.
309
310 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
311 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
312
313 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
314 using MooseX::Deamonize
315
316 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
317 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
318 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
319 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
320 deployed in these environments.
321
c79bd3b0 322 Enhancements:
323
324 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
325 the remote request.
0d47e040 326
327 Documentation:
328 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
329 file for your application.
330
331 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
332 engines clarified.
333
334 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 335 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 336 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
337
b40baecd 3385.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
339
f899107d 340 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 341 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
342 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
343
344 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
345
e3557c86 346 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
347 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 348
349 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
350 IO::Handle's behaviour.
351
352 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
353 was not breaking out correctly
354
f899107d 355 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
356 to also work in the $c->component method.
357
5ff374b5 358 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
359 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
360 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
361 mode.
2e4a8275 362 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 363
52d65afe 364 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
365
366 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
367
368 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
369 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
370 names.
371
372 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
373
1f440f55 3745.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
375
376 Bug fixes:
377 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
378 not being installed.
379
380 Refactoring:
381 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
382 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
383 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
384
aceee8b5 3855.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
386
2cd94c07 387 Bug fixes:
388 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
389
390 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
391 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
392 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 393
2cd94c07 394 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 395
2cd94c07 396 Known problems:
397 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
398 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
399 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
400 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 401
2cd94c07 402 Documentation:
403 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
404 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 405
07608083 4065.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 407
408 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 409 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
410 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
411 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
412 returning true.
413 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
414
0fd00e7b 415 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
416 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
417 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
418
9bf423ee 419 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
420 in Catalyst::execute
421
422 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
423 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
424 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
425
426 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
427 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
428 (e.g. /account/*)
429
430 New features:
431 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
432 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
433
434 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
435 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
436 developers without changing their application code.
437
45cab07f 4385.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
439
718e6314 440 Bug fixes:
441 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
442 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
443 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
444 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
445 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
446
6ca73485 447 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
448 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
449
7258c943 4505.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
451
452 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
453
454 Removed features:
455
456 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
457 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
458 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
459 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
460 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
461 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
462 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
463
464 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
465 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
466 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
467 class, please tell us *now*.
468
94edbd2c 4695.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
470
8865ee12 471 New features:
472 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
473 title.
2af2a5bf 474 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
475 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
476 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
477 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
478 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
479 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 480
c046f519 481 Bug fixes:
482 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
483 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 484 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
485 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
486 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
487 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
488 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 489 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 490 failing case.
efc2aac0 491 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
492 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
493 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
494 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
495 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
496 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
497 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
498 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 499
fa325a7d 500 Documentation:
501 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
502 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
503

505
506 New features:
4d723d12 507 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
508 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
509 confused.
510
47990d3f 511 Warning fixes:
512 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 513 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.

516
808db1d6 517 Bug fixes:
518 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
519
7f891e1e 520 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
521 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
522
b2910653 523 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl

03235666 5305.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
531
2afd1ea3 532 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 533 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
534 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
535 load Utils before MyApp.pm
536
537 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
538 application
539
540 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
541
2afd1ea3 542 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
543 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
544 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
545 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
546 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 547
1f94dc3a 548 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
549 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 550
9c64b93a 551 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
552 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
553 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
554
ab83907b 555 Refactoring:
556 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
557 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components

566
13c565fe 567 New features:
568 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
569 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
570 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
571 the default action creation.
572
f5325631 573 Bug fixes:
574 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
575 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 576 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
577 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 578 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 579 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
580 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 581
582 Documentation:
583 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
584 point.
f8a54681 585 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
586 values.
f73be6d2 587 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)

7aba3b2d 5895.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
590
591 Bug fixes:
592 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
593 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
594 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
595 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
596 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
597
598 New features:
599 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
600 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
601
602 Documentation:
603 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
604 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
605 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
606 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
607
e3a7414d 6085.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27

46b58c90 610 Bug fixes:
671123ba 611 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
612 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
613 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 614 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
615 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 616 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
617 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 618 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 619
0319ec68 620 New features:
621 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
622 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
623 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
624 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 625 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
626 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 627 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 628 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 629
8fa9321c 630 Documentation:
631 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
632 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
633
1f52c1d2 634 Cleanups:
635 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
636 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
637 $Catalyst::VERSION.

640
025d09f9 641 New features:
642 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
643 the content type and content length if available.
644
13311c16 645 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 646 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 647 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
648 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
649 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
650 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 651 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 652 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
653 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 654 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
655 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 656 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
657 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
658 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 659
13e46699 660 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 661 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
662 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 663 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
664 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 665
d5c5d96f 6665.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
667
52e23ad4 668 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 669 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 670 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 671
1bebcac6 6725.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18

f0bb41af 6785.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
679
2689f8a4 680 Bug fixed:
681 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
682 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
683 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
684 which should not be encoded.
685 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
686 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
687
688 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
689 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
690 any set of args/captures.
691
f54950f5 692 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
693 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
694
0ff92c67 695 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
696 removed.
c2f4efce 697
698 Documentation:
0ff92c67 699 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path

c8083f4e 715 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 716
955d6da6 717 Deprecations:
718 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
719 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
720 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

726 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
727 MyApp::View::HTML).
728
e1d59dc4 729 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 730 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 731 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
732 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 733 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
734 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
735 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 736 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
737 argv key in the options hash.
738 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
739 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
740 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 741 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
742 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 743 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
744 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 745
3f07296e 746 Cleanups:
747 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
748 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
749 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
750 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
751 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 757 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
758 encoding test controller.
e66329da 759
760 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
761
82701bda 762 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
763 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 764 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
765 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
766 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 767 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 768 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 769 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
770 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
771 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
772 URI.
754e86c6 773 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 774
c96cdcef 775 New features:
e66329da 776
c96cdcef 777 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
778 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
779 less packed with information of no use.

788 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
789 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 790 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 791
792 Documentation:

ef546d1e 7975.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 798 Bug fixes:
799 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
800 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
801 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
802 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
803 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 804 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 805 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
806 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
807 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 808 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
809 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
810 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
811 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 812 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 813 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 814

c4efaa54 823
824 Bug fixes:
825 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
826 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
827 on the old behaviour.
828
829 Refactoring / cleanups:
830 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
831 are deprecated and now issue warnings.

568e11a2 8335.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
834
9f16fdf2 835 Bug fixes:
836 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
837 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
838 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 839 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
840 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 841 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 842 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 843 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 844 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
845 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
846 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 847 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
848 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
849 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
850 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 851 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
852 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
853 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
854 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 855
d71da6fe 856 Documentation:
857 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 858 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 859 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
860 deprecated and causes warnings).
861 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
862 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
863 in the correct order.
864 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
865 context.
08a2c908 866 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 867 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 868 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 869
ab86b480 870 New features:
871 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 872 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 873 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
874 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 875 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
876 distributions
10d77181 877 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
878 exception classes need to implement.
879 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
880 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
881 use it.
9f16fdf2 882
647a3de1 883 Refactoring / cleanups:
884 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
885 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
886 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
887 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
888 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
889 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 890 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 894 Bug fixes:
895 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
896 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
897 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
898 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
899 method.
900 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
901 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 902 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 903
904 Documentation:
85fc6206 905 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
906 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
907 warnings.

909 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 910 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
911 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
912 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
913 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 914 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

5d94e8f9 918 Bug fixes:
919 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
920 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 921 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
922 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 923 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
924 is returned to 'actions'.
925 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
926 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 927
928 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 929 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 930 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 931
932 Tests:
933 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
934 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
935 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

938
9d59dde8 939 Bug fixes:
940 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
941 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
942 installed in @INC.

f72168b7 9445.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 945
946 Bug fixes:
947 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.

952
e7e4c469 953 Bug fixes:
954 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
955 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
956 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

959
4ffa3785 960 Bug fixes:
961 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
962 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 963 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
964 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
965 tests.
2f6049f2 966 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 967 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 968 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 969 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
970 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
971 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 972 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
973 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 974 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
975 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
976 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 977 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 978 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 979
371c6f1a 980 Refactoring / cleanups:

982 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 983 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 984 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 985 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 986 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
987 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 988
989 New features:
d05e45ce 990 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
991 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 992 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 993 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 994 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 995 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
996 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 997 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 998 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
999 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1000 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1001 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1002 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1003 the request.
371c6f1a 1004
1fe85999 1005 Documentation:
1006 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1007 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1008 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1009 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1f851263 1014 Bug fixes:
1015 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1016 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1017 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1018 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1019 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1020 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1021 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1022 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1023 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1024 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1025 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1026
a375a206 1027 New features:
1028 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1029 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1030 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1031 URI.

3c9b6867 1035 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1036 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1037 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1038 applications.
655dfc2a 1039 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1040 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1041 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1042 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1043 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1044 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1045 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1046 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1047 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1048 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1057 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1058 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1059 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1060
371c6f1a 1061 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1062 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1063 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1064 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1065 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1066 error message.
1067 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1068 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1069 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1070 Fixes RT#47366
1071 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1072 again in Catalyst::Test

1092 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1093 later on
dd97c1ac 1094 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1095 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1124 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1125 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1126 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1127 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1128 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1129 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1130 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1131 parse_on_demand is on

e262f38e 1144 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1145 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1146 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1147 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1148 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1149 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1150 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1151 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1152 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 1160 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1161 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1162 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1163 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1164 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 1165
b8123bba 11665.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1167 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1168 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.
1169 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1170 configuration in your application.
1171 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1172 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1173 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

13c6b4cc 1207 - Tests for this
02298d3a 1208 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 1209 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 1210 - Tests for this (radek)
1211 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1212 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1213 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 1214 - Tests for this (radek)
f2e13bbd 1215 - Added Catalyst::Test::ctx_request to be able to inspect
1216 the context object after a request is made (Jos Boumans)

545e1e3a 1222 spurious warnings
1223 - Add a warning for the old ::[MVC]:: style naming scheme
1224 - Test for this
2d9f9c8d 1225 - Kill Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT warnings for the Catalyst:: namespace
545e1e3a 1226 in production versions

545e1e3a 1228 the correct metaclass
4d0270d3 1229 - Make MyApp.pm restartable by unsetting setup_finished in
545e1e3a 1230 the restarter process
65b708a6 1231 - Non-naive implementation of making mutable on restart using
545e1e3a 1232 B::Hooks::OP::Check::StashChange if installed
1233 - Tests for this
65b708a6 1234 - Naive implementation of making all components mutable in the
1235 forked restart watcher process so native Moose apps using
545e1e3a 1236 immutable restart correctly.
1237 - Tests for this
107d0ba0 1238 - Bump Moose dependency to 0.70 so that we avoid nasty surprises
545e1e3a 1239 with is_class_loaded and perl 5.80 when you Moosify MyApp.pm
8f58057d 1240 - Clarify that request arguments aren't unescaped automatically

1251 - Add $c->uri_for_action method.
1252 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 1253 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
1254 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 1255 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1256 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1257 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1258 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1259 syntax.
e7924bb5 1260 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
1261 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.
1262 This is more correct, and avoids metaclass incompatibility in complex
545e1e3a 1263 cases
1264 - Tests for this

1472 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1473 throw warnings for two reasons:

1476 instead
df3956bf 1477 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1478 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1479 method with a regex as the argument
