c8d9e6f4 35.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 4 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
5 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
6 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 7 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
701e20e5 8 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on perl 5.17.11
9 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 10 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
11 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 12 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
13 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 14 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 15 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
16 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
17 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
18 termination).
8275d3b9 19 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
20 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
21 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
22 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
23 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
24 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 25 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
26 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
27 for more.
d18964f7 28 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 29
f653d2c8 305.90030 - 2013-04-12
31 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
32 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
33 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 34 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
35 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
36 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
37 resolve manually.
18df061a 38 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
39 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
40 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 41 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 42 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
43 - smarter valiation around action attributes.
5490e075 44
455.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 46 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
47 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
48 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
49 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
50 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
51 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 52 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
53 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
54 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
55 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 56 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 57 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 58 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 59 - Some test and documentation improvements
58f86b1a 60
dbacbce4 615.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
07ec95ca 62 - Fix for perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
2fe6ed83 63 - Fix for perl 5.8. RT#61122
8c848c33 64 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on perl5.8
65 RT#77100 & RT#81121
2fe6ed83 66
02f4beca 675.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
68 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
69 HTTP::Message.
70
d6ae5104 715.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 72 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 73
74 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
75 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
76
77 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
78
79 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
80 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
81
82 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
83
0df490ef 84 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
85 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
86 of request or response classes.
87
f0580bff 885.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 89 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
90 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
f0580bff 91 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOXS tar
0ee04045 92 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 93 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 94 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
95 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
96 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
97 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
98
cfdd890d 995.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00
89ba65d5 100 - Fix $c->finalize_headers getting called twice. RT#78090
e087c8e3 101 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-Session-State-Cookie. RT#76179
102 - Fix test fails in Catalyst-Plugin-StackTrace
103 - Fix test fails in Test-WWW-Mechanize-Catalyst
89ba65d5 104
f444811b 1055.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
106
258733f1 107 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
108 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
109
aa3897db 1105.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
111
112 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
113 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
114 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
115 of Catalyst.
116
1175.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00
118
eff60019 119 New features:
120 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
121
a7d2a530 122 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 123 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
124 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
125
40c06ae4 126 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
127 are supplied.
128
129 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
130 top level config.
a7d2a530 131
b334a4de 132 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
133
134 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
135
3239be86 1365.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
137
57746b80 138 Distribution META.yml changes:
139 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
140 mis-parses from the documentation.
141 - x_authority key added.
142
9a649d25 143 Bug fixes:
144 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
145 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
146
1e089329 147 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
148 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
149 is less than helpful.
150
38e43e65 151 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
152 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
153 in bleadperl. RT#76437
154
2037f03f 155 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 156 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
157
d8ccdd9d 158 Documentation:
159 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
160 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
161 directly.
162 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 163 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 164 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710
d8ccdd9d 165
2114ee9f 1665.90011 - 2012-03-08 16:43:00
167
f7ac80ef 168 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 169 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
170 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
171 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
172 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
173 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
174 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
175 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 176 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
177 applications.
df894348 178 - --background option for the server script now only closes
179 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
180 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 181 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
182 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 183 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
184 callback.
f7ac80ef 185
fed36d61 1865.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 187
0c17b66d 188 Bug fixes:
189 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
190 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
191 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
192 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
193
8d196862 1945.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
195
0607947f 196 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 197 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
198 refactoring.
199
0607947f 200 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
201 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
202 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
203 included when not running from a checkout.
204
80267996 205 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
206
8529a7ea 207 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 208 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
209 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 210
d0cacee7 211 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
212
af09d56c 2135.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
214
d0cfd993 215 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 216 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 217 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
218 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
219
220 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
221 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
222 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
223
224 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 225 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 226 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
227 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
228
229 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
230
0aba7d92 231 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 232 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
233 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
234 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
235 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
236 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
237
d0cfd993 238 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 239 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 240 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
241 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
242
e6bcfe8e 243 Tests:
3d2c4feb 244 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 245
e1e5366d 246 Documentation:
247 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
248 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
249 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
250
e6bcfe8e 251 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
252 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
253 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
254
00341d81 2555.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
256
0d7bf3a9 257 New features:
258 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
259 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
260 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
261 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
262 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
263
1ce9c7f6 264 Bug fixes:
265 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 266 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
267 over that.
a465926f 268 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
269 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
270 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 271
4c21ba3b 2725.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
273
27b0a436 274 New features:
275 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
276 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
277 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
278 get them passed through to the application.
279
d685f38e 280 Doumentation:
281 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
282 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
283 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
284 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
285
f4de8c99 286 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 287 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
288 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
289 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
290 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
291 a value.
292 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
293 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
294 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 295
c7250231 296 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
297 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
298
849b1b24 2995.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
300
ab6c6d3d 301 New features:
302
303 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
304 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
305 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
306 whereas before you had to say:
307 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
308 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
309 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
310 the two.
311
cf49ace4 312 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
313 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
314 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
315 scripts in the application.
316 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
317 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
318 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
319 otherwise).
320
ab6c6d3d 321 Documentation:
322
323 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
324 to avoid confusion
325 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
326 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
327 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
328 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
329 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
330 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
331 and provide an alternative.
332
4ec26b6c 3335.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
334
65420d46 335 Bug fixes:
336
337 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
338 MyApp->engine_class.
339
a253d527 3405.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 341 Bug fixes:
342
343 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
344
e95b2b49 345 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
346 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
347 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
348 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
349 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
350 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
351
fabe0bc6 352 Enhancements:
353
354 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
355 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
356
5cb939e8 357 Backward compatibility fixes:
358
359 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
360 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
361
14eb7697 362 Documentation fixes:
363
364 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
365 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 366
d536010b 367 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 368
824a5eb0 369 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
370
836a51a2 3715.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 372 Backward compatibility fixes:
373
374 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
375 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
376 circumstances.
377 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
378
c47cd2ce 379 Documentation fixes:
380
381 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
382 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
383 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
384
3143ee5f 3855.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
386
387 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
388 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
389
390 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
391
392 Cut another release.

72697c1d 397
c20710a1 398 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 399
400 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 401
2f3f09d4 402 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 403
2f3f09d4 404 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
405 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
406 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 407
2f3f09d4 408 Documentation:
72697c1d 409
2f3f09d4 410 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
411 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 412
2f3f09d4 413 Changes:
cb1e348b 414
2f3f09d4 415 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
416 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
417 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 418
cfb5d52a 4195.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 420
421 Backward compatibility fixes:
422
423 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
424 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
425
426 Bug fixes:
427
ab4df9f8 428 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
429 been made immutable.
430
0d47e040 431 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
432 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
433 example) Coro is loaded.
434
435 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
436 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
437
438 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
439 using MooseX::Deamonize
440
441 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
442 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
443 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
444 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
445 deployed in these environments.
446
c79bd3b0 447 Enhancements:
448
449 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
450 the remote request.
0d47e040 451
452 Documentation:
453 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
454 file for your application.
455
456 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
457 engines clarified.
458
459 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 460 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 461 use the normal request function against a local server instead.

464
f899107d 465 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 466 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
467 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
468
469 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
470
e3557c86 471 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
472 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 473
474 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
475 IO::Handle's behaviour.
476
477 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
478 was not breaking out correctly
479
f899107d 480 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
481 to also work in the $c->component method.
482
5ff374b5 483 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
484 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
485 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
486 mode.
2e4a8275 487 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 488
52d65afe 489 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
490
491 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
492
493 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
494 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
495 names.
496
497 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.

1f440f55 4995.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
500
501 Bug fixes:
502 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
503 not being installed.
504
505 Refactoring:
506 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
507 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
508 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.

aceee8b5 5105.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
511
2cd94c07 512 Bug fixes:
513 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
514
515 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
516 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
517 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 518
2cd94c07 519 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 520
2cd94c07 521 Known problems:
522 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
523 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
524 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
525 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 526
2cd94c07 527 Documentation:
528 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
529 of Catalyst has been much improved.

07608083 5315.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 532
533 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 534 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
535 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
536 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
537 returning true.
538 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
539
0fd00e7b 540 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
541 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
542 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
543
9bf423ee 544 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
545 in Catalyst::execute
546
547 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
548 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
549 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
550
551 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
552 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
553 (e.g. /account/*)
554
555 New features:
556 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
557 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
558
559 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
560 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
561 developers without changing their application code.
562
45cab07f 5635.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
564
718e6314 565 Bug fixes:
566 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
567 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
568 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
569 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
570 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
571
6ca73485 572 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
573 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
574
7258c943 5755.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
576
577 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
578
579 Removed features:
580
581 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
582 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
583 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
584 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
585 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
586 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
587 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
588
589 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
590 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
591 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
592 class, please tell us *now*.
593
94edbd2c 5945.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
595
8865ee12 596 New features:
597 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
598 title.
2af2a5bf 599 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
600 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
601 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
602 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
603 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
604 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 605
c046f519 606 Bug fixes:
607 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
608 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 609 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
610 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
611 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
612 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
613 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 614 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 615 failing case.
efc2aac0 616 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
617 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
618 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
619 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
620 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
621 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
622 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
623 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 624
fa325a7d 625 Documentation:
626 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
627 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
628
47990d3f 6295.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
630
631 New features:
4d723d12 632 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
633 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
634 confused.
635
47990d3f 636 Warning fixes:
637 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 638 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
639
b2910653 6405.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
641
808db1d6 642 Bug fixes:
643 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
644
7f891e1e 645 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
646 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
647
b2910653 648 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
649
d1672c76 6505.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00

653 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
654
03235666 6555.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
656
2afd1ea3 657 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 658 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
659 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
660 load Utils before MyApp.pm
661
662 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
663 application
664
665 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
666
2afd1ea3 667 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
668 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
669 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
670 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
671 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 672
1f94dc3a 673 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
674 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 675
9c64b93a 676 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
677 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
678 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
679
ab83907b 680 Refactoring:
681 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
682 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
683
684 Documentation:
685 - Fix some typos
686
687 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI

cba60982 6905.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
691
13c565fe 692 New features:
693 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
694 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
695 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
696 the default action creation.
697
f5325631 698 Bug fixes:
699 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
700 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 701 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
702 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 703 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 704 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
705 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 706
707 Documentation:
708 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
709 point.
f8a54681 710 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
711 values.
f73be6d2 712 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 713
7aba3b2d 7145.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
715
716 Bug fixes:
717 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
718 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
719 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
720 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
721 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
722
723 New features:
724 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
725 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
726
727 Documentation:
728 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
729 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
730 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
731 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
732
e3a7414d 7335.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
734
46b58c90 735 Bug fixes:
671123ba 736 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
737 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
738 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 739 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
740 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 741 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
742 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 743 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 744
0319ec68 745 New features:
746 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
747 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
748 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
749 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 750 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
751 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 752 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 753 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 754
8fa9321c 755 Documentation:
756 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
757 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
758
1f52c1d2 759 Cleanups:
760 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
761 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
762 $Catalyst::VERSION.
763
14a1ceef 7645.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
765
025d09f9 766 New features:
767 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
768 the content type and content length if available.
769
13311c16 770 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 771 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 772 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
773 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
774 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
775 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 776 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 777 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
778 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 779 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
780 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 781 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
782 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
783 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 784
13e46699 785 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 786 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
787 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 788 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
789 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 790
d5c5d96f 7915.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
792
52e23ad4 793 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 794 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 795 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.

f0bb41af 8035.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
804
2689f8a4 805 Bug fixed:
806 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
807 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
808 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
809 which should not be encoded.
810 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
811 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
812
813 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
814 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
815 any set of args/captures.
816
f54950f5 817 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
818 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
819
0ff92c67 820 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
821 removed.
c2f4efce 822
823 Documentation:

ca78941c 833 Bug fixed:
834 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
835 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 836 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 837
c9ec25f8 838 Documentation:
839 - Clarify that uri_for_action works on private paths, with example.

955d6da6 842 Deprecations:
843 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
844 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
845 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

1d3a0700 849 Documentation:
850 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
851 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
852 MyApp::View::HTML).
853
e1d59dc4 854 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 855 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 856 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
857 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 858 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
859 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
860 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 861 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
862 argv key in the options hash.
863 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
864 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
865 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 866 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
867 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 868 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
869 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 870
3f07296e 871 Cleanups:
872 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
873 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
874 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
875 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
876 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

885 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
886
82701bda 887 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
888 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 889 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
890 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
891 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 892 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 893 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 894 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
895 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
896 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
897 URI.
754e86c6 898 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 899
c96cdcef 900 New features:
e66329da 901
c96cdcef 902 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
903 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
904 less packed with information of no use.

0ab4f753 9105.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 911 Bug fixes:
912 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
913 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
914 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 915 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 916
917 Documentation:
918 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

5ab21903 923 Bug fixes:
924 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
925 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
926 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
927 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
928 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 929 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 930 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
931 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
932 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 933 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
934 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
935 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
936 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 937 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 938 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 939
2b3bb280 940 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 948
949 Bug fixes:
950 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
951 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
952 on the old behaviour.
953
954 Refactoring / cleanups:
955 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
956 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
957
568e11a2 9585.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
959
9f16fdf2 960 Bug fixes:
961 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
962 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
963 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 964 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
965 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 966 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 967 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 968 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 969 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
970 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
971 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 972 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
973 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
974 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
975 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 976 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
977 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
978 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
979 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 980
d71da6fe 981 Documentation:
982 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 983 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 984 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
985 deprecated and causes warnings).
986 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
987 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
988 in the correct order.
989 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
990 context.
08a2c908 991 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 992 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 993 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 994
ab86b480 995 New features:
996 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 997 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 998 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
999 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1000 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1001 distributions
10d77181 1002 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1003 exception classes need to implement.
1004 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1005 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1006 use it.
9f16fdf2 1007
647a3de1 1008 Refactoring / cleanups:
1009 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1010 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1011 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1012 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1013 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1014 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1015 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1019 Bug fixes:
1020 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1021 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1022 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1023 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1024 method.
1025 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1026 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1027 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1028
1029 Documentation:
85fc6206 1030 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1031 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1032 warnings.
297ff4ce 1033
1034 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1035 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1036 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1037 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1038 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1039 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

d367bfc9 1046 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1047 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1048 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1049 is returned to 'actions'.
1050 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1051 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1052
1053 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1054 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1055 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1056
1057 Tests:
1058 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1059 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1060 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1066 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1067 installed in @INC.

1071 Bug fixes:
1072 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.

1080 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1081 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.

1084
4ffa3785 1085 Bug fixes:
1086 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1087 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1088 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1089 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1090 tests.
2f6049f2 1091 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1092 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1093 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1094 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1095 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1096 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1097 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1098 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1099 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1100 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1101 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1102 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1103 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1104
371c6f1a 1105 Refactoring / cleanups:
1106 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1107 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1108 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1109 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1110 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1111 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1112 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1113
1114 New features:
d05e45ce 1115 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1116 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1117 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1118 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1119 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1120 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1121 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1122 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1123 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1124 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1125 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1126 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1127 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1128 the request.
371c6f1a 1129
1fe85999 1130 Documentation:
1131 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1132 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1133 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1134 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1140 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1141 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1142 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1143 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1144 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1145 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1146 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1147 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1148 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1149 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1150 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1151
a375a206 1152 New features:
1153 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1154 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1155 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1156 URI.

3c9b6867 1160 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1161 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1162 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1163 applications.
655dfc2a 1164 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1165 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1166 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1167 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1168 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1169 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1170 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1171 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1172 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1173 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1174 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1175 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1176 - Action methods named default and index fixed.
3c9b6867 1177
d58edd2a 1178 New features:
655dfc2a 1179 - Use ~ as prefix for plugins or action classes which are located in
1180 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1181 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1182 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1183 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1184 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1185
371c6f1a 1186 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1187 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1188 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1189 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1190 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1191 error message.
1192 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1193 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1194 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1195 Fixes RT#47366

545e1e3a 1214 loading
f66edc15 1215 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1216 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1217 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1218 later on
dd97c1ac 1219 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1220 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

1227 (with attributes) can be used in / composed from Moose roles.
fd4d9ff7 1228 - Allow the generation of cookies with the HTTPOnly flag set
1229 in Catalyst::Engine (kmx)

545e1e3a 1244 passed into $c->uri_for as Args/CaptureArgs
8317b3d1 1245 - Fix development server so that $c->engine->env returns the correct
545e1e3a 1246 environment
1247 - Require Moose 0.78 to fix metaclass incompatibility issues
c98492ae 1248 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1249 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1250 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1251 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1252 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1253 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1254 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1255 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1256 parse_on_demand is on

5f3fc036 12585.80003 2009-04-29 16:23:53
eaae9a92 1259 - Various POD tweaks. (hdp, dandv)
545e1e3a 1260 - Fix formatting error in the regex fallback warning.
37eaceaf 1261 - Convert the dispatcher's and restarter engine's BUILD method to
1262 attribute builders to not override the BUILD method from
545e1e3a 1263 MooseX::Emulate::Class::Accessor::Fast.

545e1e3a 1267 parents at all.
d0003a28 1268 - Turn off test aggregation by default. Only aggregate if the
e262f38e 1269 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1270 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1271 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1272 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1273 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1274 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /

4cb5d29f 1292 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1293 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.

1336 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1337 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains

e7924bb5 1381 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1382 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace

1597 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1598 throw warnings for two reasons:
1599 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
1600 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
1601 instead
df3956bf 1602 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1603 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1604 method with a regex as the argument
