900e055b 155.90_121 - 2018-10-22
216fe9c9 16 - use the :utf8_strict (PerlIO::utf8_strict) rather than :encoding file handle
17 layer to handle decoding uploads, as a performance boost.
18 - fix handling of decoding uploaded files. this fixes the usage of sysread
19 on :utf8 handles, and reenables the tests on all perl versions. Fixes CPAN

f65b6e93 68
7213dd01 695.90114 - 2016-12-19
70 - Fixed regression introduced in the last version (5.90113) which caused
71 application to hang when the action private name contained a string
72 like 'foo/bar..html'. If you are running 5.90113 you should consider this
73 a required update.
59e4fb5d 74 - Tweaked travis CI script.
7213dd01 75
ffe72ea6 765.90113 - 2016-12-15
77 - Fixed issue with $controller->action_for when targeting an action in
78 a namespace nested inside the current controller and the current controller
79 is a 'root' controller.
80 - Enhanced $controller->action_for so that you can reference the 'parent'
81 controller via relative path (eg ->action_for('../foo')).
82 - Backcompat fix for people that made the mistake of doing $c->{stash}
d7325e05 83 - Sort controllers in setup_actions so cross-controller precedence is
84 consistent.
85
a050c28a 865.90112 - 2016-07-25
0fb9642d 87 - Spelling fixes from Debian group.
a050c28a 88 - Fixed regression introduced in last release that caused the code to crap out
89 if you set the encoding to 'undef'.
90
bde75a9e 915.90111 - 2016-07-20
92 - Improved documentation around some of the unicode changes; tests (melmothx++)
93
de2e9a6f 945.90110 - 2016-07-20
103f2d96 95 - Better catching of HTTP style exceptions so that you can reliable use one to
96 override many core method.
97 - Documention on better ways to catch and handle Unicode errors
98 - We now check the unicode in your URL request queries and raise an error if the
99 check fails. This was done to be consistent with what we do in other parts of
100 the code (such as in args, or POSTed parameters). If this breaks your code in
101 ways you don't want to fix, you may disable this using the global configuration
102 setting, "do_not_check_query_encoding".
103 - Removed configuration setting, "decode_query_using_global_encoding" since it no
104 longer does anything useful. Query decoding follows from whatever you set the
105 global encoding to, unless you specify an alternative or to not decode.
106
5df9a4c5 1075.90106 - 2016-07-05
108 - Fixed regression in debug screen rendering of the private names in chained
109 actions caused by commit 5dd46e24eedec447bdfbc4061ed683b5a17a7b0c.
110 - Fixed incorrect date entered for the release of 5.90105
111 - Fixed some incorrect code in a test case that might be causing test fails
112 in some configurations.
113
1145.90105 - 2016-06-08
2d4da72c 115 - Tweak some test cases to try and prevent them from failing in limited cases.
116 - Changed how we compose traits onto the response, request, and stats class so
117 that we compose just once at setup time (performance optimization). Also added
118 a debug screen at startup to display composed classes to help with debugging.
cc7af078 119 - Fixed a regressed caused by the changes we made to the way ->state works so that
fd1fe4c7 120 now when you forward to an action and that action throws an exception, $c->state
cc7af078 121 is set to 0, instead of the value of the exeption (this is to be as indicated by
fd1fe4c7 122 the documentation). (cventers++ for reported bug and test case).
18adb1ed 123 - Changed the code that detects if you try to set HTTP headers after headers are
124 finalized to not warn if you are just requested the response header state. Tweaked
125 this error message a bit to help people understand it.
2d4da72c 126
163b3de6 1275.90104 - 2016-04-04
128 - Merged pull request #131, fix for noisy debug logs when used type constraints
129 in your actions. Additional changes to the developer debug screen output to
130 improve reporting details.
131 - Merged pull request #133, fix for case when a file upload filename contains
132 wide characters which caused the filename to not appear in the uploads hash.
133
ed60d917 1345.90103 - 2015-11-12
4c71cf1b 135 - More documentation fixes (thanks to the debian maintainers and melmothx++)
136 - Fixed the way we parse subroutine attribute values to fix a regression
137 introduced in 5.90102. This is a recommended upgrade (tsibley++, mst++)
138 - Fixed regression around auto actions that escape by throwing an exception
139 which was introduced in the last release.
ed906c97 140 - Bumped namespace::autoclean dep to latest since tests require -except
4c71cf1b 141
b8ef930c 1425.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 143 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
144 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
145 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 146 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 147 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
148 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 149 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e459bd03 150 - $c->state is now preserved over actions in a chain, and across begin,
151 auto, ->forward and ->detach.
e43b00f9 152
d2995a76 1535.90101 - 2015-09-04
154 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
155 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
156
5e7e6b27 1575.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 158 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
159 with type constraints.
160 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 161 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 162 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
163 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 164 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 165 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 166
a1dba4cf 1675.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 168 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
169 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
170 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 171 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
172 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
173 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
174 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 175
ed5a562b 1765.90096 - 2015-07-27
177 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
178 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
179 to define behavior better.
180
3f955f48 1815.90095 - 2015-07-27
182 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
183 on CPAN testers.
184 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
185 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
186 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
187 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 188
b0ff1be8 1895.90094 - 2015-07-24
190 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
191 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
192 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 193 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
194 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 195 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
196 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 197 - Merged Pull Requests:

b0ff1be8 204
80ba671f 2055.90093 - 2015-05-29
206 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
207 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
208
5af5f973 2095.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 210 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
211 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 212 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
213 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
214 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
215 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 216
2175.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 218 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
219 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
220 even though they were actually created).
221
7dac038c 2225.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 223 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
224 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
225 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
226 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
227 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
228
630ad67c 2295.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 230 - Added swanky github badges.
231 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 232 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
233 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
234 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
235 retrieved.
236
718a1619 2375.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 238 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
239 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 240 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
241 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
242 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 243
1592e3ff 2445.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 245 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
246 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
247 test fail.
248 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
249 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
250 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
251 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
252 and imported types.
d9f0a350 253 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
254 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
255 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 256 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
257 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
258 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
259 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
260 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 261 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
262 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
263 component.
ec4d7259 264 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
265 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
266 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
267 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
268 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 269 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
270 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 271 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
272 they are combined.
3e560748 273 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
274 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
275 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
276 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
277 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
278 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 279 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
280 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
281 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 282 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
283 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 284 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 285 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 286 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
287 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
288 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 289
2905.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 291 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 292 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 293 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
294 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 295 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
296 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 297 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
298 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 299 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 300 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 301
9f3e69ee 3025.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 303 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
304 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
305 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
306 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
307 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
308 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
309 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 310 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
311 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 312 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
313 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
314 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 315
8479713c 3165.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 317 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
318 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 319 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 320 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 321 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 322 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 323 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 324 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 325 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
326 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
327 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
328 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
329 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 330
3315.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 332 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 333 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 334 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
335 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
336 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
337 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 338
7131401a 3395.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 340 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
341 to prevent it happening again.
342
7131401a 3435.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 344 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
345 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
346 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
347 test case to prevent regressions.
348
7131401a 3495.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 350 - Minor documentation corrections
351 - Make the '79 development series stable
352
d2000928 3535.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
354 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
355 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 356 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 357 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 358
3595.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 360 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
361 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
362 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 363 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
364 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
365 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 366
b274486c 3675.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 368 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 369 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
370 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
371 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
372 note posted a few months ago.
373 - Added my name to the contributors list
374
6dcc5307 3755.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
376 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 377 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
378 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
379 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
380 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
381 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
382 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
383 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
384 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
385 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
386 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
387 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 388
c017b11b 3895.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 390 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
391 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
392 global variable.
393 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 394 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
395 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
396 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
397 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
398 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 399 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 400 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 401 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 402 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
403 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 404
501605db 4055.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
406 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
407 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
408
bd4b086b 4095.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
410 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
411 changes.
412
4135.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 414 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
415 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 416 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 417 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 418 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 419 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
420 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 421 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
422 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
423 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 424 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 425 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
426 correct if incorrect :)
427 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
428 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 429 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 430 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 431 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
432 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 433 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 434 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
435 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
436 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 437 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 438 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 439 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
440 you want to use.
342d2169 441 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
442 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
443 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
444 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
445 request uses.
460bb45b 446
a24232f9 4475.90079 - 2015-01-02
448 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
449 rt #101243)
450 - updated year in copyright notices
451
b94f8e72 4525.90078 - 2014-12-30
453 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 454 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 455 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
456 trouble. (davewood++);
457 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
458 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
459 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
460
ee2c12fd 4615.90077 - 2014-11-18
462 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
463 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
464 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
465 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
466 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
467
9c86666a 4685.90076 - 2014-11-13
469 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
470 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
471 HTTP Exception middleware.
472
0810283f 4735.90075 - 2014-10-06
474 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
475 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
476 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
477 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
478 you really need to review this exploit.
479
c027f9c4 4805.90074 - 2014-10-01
481 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
482
2be363b7 4835.90073 - 2014-09-23
484 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
485 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
486 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 487 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
488 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 489 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 490
4f96d61c 4915.90072 - 2014-09-15
492 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
493 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
494 so you can go to hunt it out.
495
d5765d73 4965.90071 - 2014-08-10
497 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
498 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
499 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
500 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
501 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 502 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 503
b96bd9f1 5045.90070 - 2014-08-07
505 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
506
1893c194 5075.90069_004
508 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
509 certain tests. No other changes.
510
310c2a39 5115.90069_003
512 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 513 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
514 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
515 a bit.
516 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
517 anything new.
eae29f6e 518 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
519 type response.
520 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
521 improvements.
9c38cb50 522
91789f94 5235.90069_002
3e6ee020 524 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
525 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
526 questions or problems!
527 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
528 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
529 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
530 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 531 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
532 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
533 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 534 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
535 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
536
1b526dcc 5375.90069_001
41bf18c5 538 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
539 - documentation and test fixes
540
8f3c0676 5415.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 542 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
543 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
544 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
545 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 546 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 547 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 548 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 549
13adef05 5505.90064 - 2014-05-05
551 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
552 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
553
5545.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 555 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
556 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
557 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
558 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 559 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
560 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 561 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
562 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
563 configuration.
564 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 565s
5665.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 567 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
568 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
569
c8ad8cbc 5705.90061 - 2014-03-10
571 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
572 introduced by a change in December.
573
de9bcba0 5745.90060 - 2014-02-07
575 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
576
78acc1f7 577
26b42801 5785.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 579 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 580 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 581 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 582 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
583 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 584
b8534a44 5855.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 586 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
587 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 5885.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 589 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
590 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
591 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
592 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
593 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 594 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 595 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 596 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
597 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 598 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
599 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
600 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 601
7af15a33 6025.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 603 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 604 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
605 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 606 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
607 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
608 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 609
97e0c7c5 6105.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 611 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
612 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
613 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
614 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
615 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
616 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
617 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
618 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 619 to work much better.
620 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
621 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
622 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
623 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
624 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
625 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
626 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
627 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 628 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
629 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 630
78acc1f7 6315.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
632 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
633 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
634 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
635 will be broken.
636
5bb2a5b3 6375.90053 - 2013-12-21
638 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
639 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
640 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
641 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
642 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
643 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 644
7d01797b 6455.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 646
02352a28 647 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
648 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 649 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
650 does not exist.
651 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 652 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 653 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
654
655 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
656 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
657 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
658 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
659
3d3ea779 660 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
661 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 662 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 663 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
664 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 665
707988f8 6665.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 667 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 668 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
669
31bd6aec 6705.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 671 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
672 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
673 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 674
55119d7b 675 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
676 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
677 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
678
679 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
680 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
681 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
682 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 683
a61b6983 6845.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
685 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 686 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 687
6885.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 689 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
690 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
691 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
692 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
693 HTML forms.
ba1734df 694 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
695 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
696 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 697 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
698 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
699 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
700 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
701 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 702
fd5fb3a8 7035.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 704 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 705 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 706 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 707 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
708 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
709 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
710 those keys already exist). Keys added:
711 - plack.request.query
712 - plack.request.body
713 - plack.request.merged
714 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 715 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 716 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
717 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
718 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
719 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
720 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
721 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
722 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 723 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
724 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
725 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 726 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
727 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
728 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
729 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
730 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
731 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 732 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
733 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 734
b3070177 7355.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
736 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 737 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 738 updates, including:
739 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
740 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
741 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
742 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
743 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
744 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
745 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
746 a development setup (ether++)
747
e2aa4a21 7485.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
749 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
750 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
751 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
752 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 753 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
754 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test
755 case t/data_handler.t

522134af 7575.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
758 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
759 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
760 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
761 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 762
01733d0f 7635.90042 - 2013-06-14
764 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
765 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 766 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
767 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
768 plugin
769 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
770 ask for encoding
771 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
772 caused trouble.
01733d0f 773
c287088e 7745.90041 - 2013-06-14
775 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
776 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
777 this fixes all of them.
778 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
779 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
780 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
781 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
782 number decimals
783 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
784
c8d9e6f4 7855.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 786 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
787 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
788 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 789 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 790 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 791 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 792 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
793 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 794 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
795 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 796 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 797 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
798 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
799 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
800 termination).
8275d3b9 801 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
802 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
803 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
804 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
805 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
806 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 807 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
808 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
809 for more.
d18964f7 810 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 811
f653d2c8 8125.90030 - 2013-04-12
813 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
814 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
815 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 816 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
817 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
818 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
819 resolve manually.
18df061a 820 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
821 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
822 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 823 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 824 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 825 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 826
8275.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 828 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
829 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
830 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
831 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
832 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
833 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 834 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
835 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
836 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
837 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 838 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 839 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 840 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 841 - Some test and documentation improvements

852
d6ae5104 8535.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 854 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 855
856 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
857 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
858
859 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
860
861 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
862 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
863
864 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
865
0df490ef 866 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
867 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
868 of request or response classes.
869
f0580bff 8705.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 871 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
872 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 873 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 874 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 875 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 876 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
877 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
878 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
879 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.

891
aa3897db 8925.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
893
894 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
895 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
896 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
897 of Catalyst.

40c06ae4 908 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
909 are supplied.
910

57746b80 920 Distribution META.yml changes:
921 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
922 mis-parses from the documentation.
923 - x_authority key added.
924
9a649d25 925 Bug fixes:
926 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
927 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
928
1e089329 929 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
930 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
931 is less than helpful.
932
38e43e65 933 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
934 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
935 in bleadperl. RT#76437
936
2037f03f 937 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 938 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.

d8ccdd9d 940 Documentation:

942 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
943 directly.

e01b6093 945 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000

f7ac80ef 950 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 951 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
952 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
953 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
954 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
955 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
956 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
957 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 958 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
959 applications.
df894348 960 - --background option for the server script now only closes
961 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
962 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 963 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
964 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 965 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
966 callback.

0c17b66d 970 Bug fixes:
971 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
972 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
973 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
974 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 978 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 979 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
980 refactoring.
981
0607947f 982 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 983 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 984 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
985 included when not running from a checkout.
986
80267996 987 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
988
8529a7ea 989 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 990 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
991 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.

996
d0cfd993 997 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 998 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 999 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
1000 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
1001
1002 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
1003 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
1004 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
1005
1006 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 1007 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 1008 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
1009 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
1010
1011 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
1012
0aba7d92 1013 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 1014 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
1015 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
1016 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
1017 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
1018 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
1019
d0cfd993 1020 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 1021 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 1022 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
1023 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
1024
e6bcfe8e 1025 Tests:
3d2c4feb 1026 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 1027
e1e5366d 1028 Documentation:
1029 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
1030 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
1031 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
1032
e6bcfe8e 1033 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
1034 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
1035 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
1036
00341d81 10375.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
1038
0d7bf3a9 1039 New features:
1040 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
1041 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
1042 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
1043 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
1044 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
1045
1ce9c7f6 1046 Bug fixes:
1047 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 1048 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
1049 over that.
a465926f 1050 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
1051 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
1052 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 1053

1055
27b0a436 1056 New features:
1057 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
1058 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
1059 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
1060 get them passed through to the application.
1061
4373973a 1062 Documentation:
d685f38e 1063 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
1064 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
1065 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
1066 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
1067
f4de8c99 1068 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 1069 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
1070 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
1071 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 1072 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 1073 a value.
1074 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
1075 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
1076 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 1077
c7250231 1078 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
1079 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.

1082
ab6c6d3d 1083 New features:
1084
1085 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
1086 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
1087 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
1088 whereas before you had to say:
1089 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
1090 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
1091 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
1092 the two.
1093
cf49ace4 1094 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
1095 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
1096 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
1097 scripts in the application.
1098 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
1099 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
1100 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
1101 otherwise).
1102
ab6c6d3d 1103 Documentation:
1104
1105 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
1106 to avoid confusion
4373973a 1107 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 1108 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
1109 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
1110 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
1111 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
1112 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
1113 and provide an alternative.

9c331634 1126
e95b2b49 1127 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
1128 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
1129 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
1130 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
1131 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
1132 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463

1163 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
1164 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
1165 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.

1168
1169 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
1170 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
1171
1172 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
1173
1174 Cut another release.

c20710a1 1180 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 1181
1182 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1183
2f3f09d4 1184 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1185
2f3f09d4 1186 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1187 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1188 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1189
2f3f09d4 1190 Documentation:
72697c1d 1191
2f3f09d4 1192 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1193 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1194
2f3f09d4 1195 Changes:
cb1e348b 1196
2f3f09d4 1197 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1198 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1199 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1200
cfb5d52a 12015.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 1202
1203 Backward compatibility fixes:
1204
1205 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1206 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1207
1208 Bug fixes:
1209
ab4df9f8 1210 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1211 been made immutable.
1212
0d47e040 1213 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1214 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1215 example) Coro is loaded.
1216
1217 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1218 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1219
1220 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1221 using MooseX::Deamonize
1222
1223 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1224 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1225 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1226 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1227 deployed in these environments.
1228
c79bd3b0 1229 Enhancements:
1230
1231 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1232 the remote request.
0d47e040 1233
1234 Documentation:
1235 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1236 file for your application.
1237
4373973a 1238 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1239 engines clarified.
1240
1241 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1242 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1243 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
1244
b40baecd 12455.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
1246
f899107d 1247 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1248 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1249 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1250
1251 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1252
e3557c86 1253 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1254 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1255
1256 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1257 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1258
1259 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1260 was not breaking out correctly
1261
f899107d 1262 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1263 to also work in the $c->component method.
1264
5ff374b5 1265 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1266 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1267 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1268 mode.
2e4a8275 1269 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1270
52d65afe 1271 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1272
1273 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1274
1275 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1276 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1277 names.
1278
1279 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
1280
1f440f55 12815.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1282
1283 Bug fixes:
1284 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1285 not being installed.
1286
1287 Refactoring:
1288 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1289 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1290 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
1291
aceee8b5 12925.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
1293
2cd94c07 1294 Bug fixes:
1295 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1296
1297 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1298 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1299 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1300
2cd94c07 1301 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1302
2cd94c07 1303 Known problems:
1304 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1305 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1306 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1307 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1308
2cd94c07 1309 Documentation:
1310 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1311 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 1312
07608083 13135.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1314
1315 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1316 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1317 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1318 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1319 returning true.
1320 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1321
0fd00e7b 1322 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1323 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1324 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1325
9bf423ee 1326 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1327 in Catalyst::execute
1328
1329 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1330 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1331 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1332
1333 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1334 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1335 (e.g. /account/*)
1336
1337 New features:
1338 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1339 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1340
1341 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1342 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1343 developers without changing their application code.
1344
45cab07f 13455.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1346
718e6314 1347 Bug fixes:
1348 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1349 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1350 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1351 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1352 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1353
6ca73485 1354 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1355 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1356
7258c943 13575.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1358
1359 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1360
1361 Removed features:
1362
1363 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1364 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1365 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1366 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1367 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1368 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1369 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1370
1371 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1372 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1373 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1374 class, please tell us *now*.
1375
94edbd2c 13765.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1377
8865ee12 1378 New features:
1379 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1380 title.
2af2a5bf 1381 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1382 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1383 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1384 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1385 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1386 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1387
c046f519 1388 Bug fixes:
1389 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1390 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1391 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1392 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1393 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1394 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1395 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1396 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1397 failing case.
efc2aac0 1398 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1399 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1400 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1401 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1402 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1403 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1404 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1405 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1406
fa325a7d 1407 Documentation:
1408 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1409 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1410
47990d3f 14115.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1412
1413 New features:
4d723d12 1414 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1415 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1416 confused.
1417
47990d3f 1418 Warning fixes:
1419 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1420 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1421
b2910653 14225.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1423
808db1d6 1424 Bug fixes:
1425 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1426
7f891e1e 1427 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1428 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1429
b2910653 1430 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1431
d1672c76 14325.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 1433
1434 Bug fixes:
1435 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
1436
03235666 14375.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1438
2afd1ea3 1439 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1440 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1441 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1442 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1443
1444 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1445 application
1446
1447 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1448
2afd1ea3 1449 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1450 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1451 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1452 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1453 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1454
1f94dc3a 1455 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1456 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1457
9c64b93a 1458 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1459 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1460 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1461
ab83907b 1462 Refactoring:
1463 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1464 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1465
1466 Documentation:
1467 - Fix some typos
1468
1469 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI
1470
1471
cba60982 14725.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1473
13c565fe 1474 New features:
1475 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1476 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1477 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1478 the default action creation.
1479
f5325631 1480 Bug fixes:
1481 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1482 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1483 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1484 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1485 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1486 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1487 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1488
1489 Documentation:
1490 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1491 point.
f8a54681 1492 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1493 values.
f73be6d2 1494 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1495
7aba3b2d 14965.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1497
1498 Bug fixes:
1499 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1500 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1501 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1502 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1503 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1504
1505 New features:
1506 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1507 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1508
1509 Documentation:
1510 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1511 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1512 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1513 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1514
e3a7414d 15155.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1516
46b58c90 1517 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1518 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1519 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1520 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1521 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1522 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1523 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1524 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1525 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1526
0319ec68 1527 New features:
1528 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1529 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1530 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1531 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1532 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1533 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1534 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1535 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1536
8fa9321c 1537 Documentation:
1538 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1539 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1540
1f52c1d2 1541 Cleanups:
1542 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1543 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1544 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1545
14a1ceef 15465.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1547
025d09f9 1548 New features:
1549 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1550 the content type and content length if available.
1551
13311c16 1552 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1553 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1554 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1555 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1556 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1557 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1558 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1559 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1560 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1561 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1562 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1563 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1564 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1565 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1566
13e46699 1567 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1568 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1569 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1570 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1571 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1572
d5c5d96f 15735.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1574
52e23ad4 1575 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1576 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1577 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1578
1bebcac6 15795.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1580
1581 New features:
1582 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
1583 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
1584
f0bb41af 15855.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1586
2689f8a4 1587 Bug fixed:
1588 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1589 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1590 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1591 which should not be encoded.
1592 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1593 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1594
1595 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1596 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1597 any set of args/captures.

ca78941c 1615 Bug fixed:
1616 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1617 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug
4113e1bb 1618 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.

1d3a0700 1631 Documentation:
1632 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1633 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1634 MyApp::View::HTML).
1635
e1d59dc4 1636 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1637 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.

1642 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 1643 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
1644 argv key in the options hash.
1645 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1646 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1647 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 1648 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose

3f07296e 1653 Cleanups:
1654 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1655 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1656 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1657 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1658 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

1665 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1666
1667 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1668
82701bda 1669 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1670 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1671 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1672 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1673 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1674 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1675 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1676 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1677 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1678 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1679 URI.
754e86c6 1680 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1681
c96cdcef 1682 New features:
e66329da 1683
c96cdcef 1684 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1685 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1686 less packed with information of no use.

0ab4f753 16925.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 1693 Bug fixes:
1694 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1695 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1696 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1697 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1698
1699 Documentation:
1700 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ef546d1e 17045.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1705 Bug fixes:
1706 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1707 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1708 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1709 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1710 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1711 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1712 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1713 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1714 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1715 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1716 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1717 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1718 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1719 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1720 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1721
2b3bb280 1722 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 1730
1731 Bug fixes:
1732 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1733 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1734 on the old behaviour.
1735
1736 Refactoring / cleanups:
1737 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1738 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1739
568e11a2 17405.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1741
9f16fdf2 1742 Bug fixes:
1743 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1744 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1745 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1746 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1747 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1748 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1749 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1750 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1751 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1752 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1753 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1754 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1755 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1756 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1757 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1758 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1759 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1760 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1761 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1762
d71da6fe 1763 Documentation:
1764 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1765 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1766 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1767 deprecated and causes warnings).
1768 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1769 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1770 in the correct order.
1771 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1772 context.
08a2c908 1773 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1774 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1775 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1776
ab86b480 1777 New features:
1778 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1779 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1780 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1781 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1782 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1783 distributions
10d77181 1784 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1785 exception classes need to implement.
1786 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1787 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1788 use it.
9f16fdf2 1789
647a3de1 1790 Refactoring / cleanups:
1791 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1792 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1793 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1794 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1795 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1796 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1797 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 1801 Bug fixes:
1802 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1803 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1804 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1805 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1806 method.
1807 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1808 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1809 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1810
1811 Documentation:
85fc6206 1812 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.

1814 warnings.
297ff4ce 1815
1816 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1817 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1818 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1819 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1820 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1821 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

d367bfc9 1828 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1829 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1830 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1831 is returned to 'actions'.
1832 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1833 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1834
1835 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1836 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1837 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1838
1839 Tests:
1840 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1841 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1842 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1848 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1849 installed in @INC.

4ffa3785 1867 Bug fixes:
1868 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1869 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1870 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1871 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1872 tests.
2f6049f2 1873 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1874 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1875 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1876 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1877 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1878 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1879 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1880 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1881 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1882 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1883 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1884 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1885 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1886
371c6f1a 1887 Refactoring / cleanups:
1888 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1889 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1890 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1891 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1892 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1893 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1894 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

1898 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1899 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1900 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1901 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1902 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1903 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1904 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1905 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1906 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1907 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1908 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1909 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1910 the request.

1924 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1925 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1926 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1927 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1928 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1929 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1930 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1931 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1932 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1933
a375a206 1934 New features:
1935 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1936 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1937 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1

3c9b6867 1942 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1943 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1944 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1945 applications.
655dfc2a 1946 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1947 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1948 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1949 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1950 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1951 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1952 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1953 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1954 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1955 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1964 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1965 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1966 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1967
371c6f1a 1968 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1969 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1970 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1971 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1972 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1973 error message.
1974 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1975 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1976 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1977 Fixes RT#47366

545e1e3a 2162 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 2163 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
2164 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace

2379 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2380 throw warnings for two reasons:
2381 1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two results are returned
2382 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2383 instead
df3956bf 2384 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2385 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2386 method with a regex as the argument
