eff60019 3 New features:
4 - Merge Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole into Catalyst::Controller.
5
a7d2a530 6 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 7 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
8 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
9
40c06ae4 10 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
11 are supplied.
12
13 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
14 top level config.
a7d2a530 15
b334a4de 16 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32
17
18 - Fix use of Test::Aggregate to make tests faster.
19
3239be86 205.90012 - 2012-05-16 09:59:00
21
57746b80 22 Distribution META.yml changes:
23 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
24 mis-parses from the documentation.
25 - x_authority key added.
26
9a649d25 27 Bug fixes:
28 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
29 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
30
1e089329 31 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
32 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
33 is less than helpful.
34
38e43e65 35 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
36 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
37 in bleadperl. RT#76437
38
2037f03f 39 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 40 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
41
d8ccdd9d 42 Documentation:
43 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
44 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
45 directly.
46 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 47 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 48 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710

51
f7ac80ef 52 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 53 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
54 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
55 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
56 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
57 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
58 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
59 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 60 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
61 applications.
df894348 62 - --background option for the server script now only closes
63 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
64 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 65 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
66 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 67 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
68 callback.
f7ac80ef 69
fed36d61 705.90010 - 2012-02-18 00:01:00
f7ac80ef 71
0c17b66d 72 Bug fixes:
73 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
74 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
75 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
76 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.
77
8d196862 785.90009 - 2012-02-16 09:06:00
79
0607947f 80 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 81 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
82 refactoring.
83
0607947f 84 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
85 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existant
86 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
87 included when not running from a checkout.
88
80267996 89 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
90
8529a7ea 91 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 92 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
93 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.
8529a7ea 94
af09d56c 955.90008 - TRIAL 2012-02-06 20:49:00
96
d0cfd993 97 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 98 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 99 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
100 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
101
102 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
103 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
104 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
105
106 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 107 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 108 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
109 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
110
111 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
112
0aba7d92 113 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 114 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
115 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
116 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
117 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
118 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
119
d0cfd993 120 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 121 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 122 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
123 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
124
e6bcfe8e 125 Tests:
3d2c4feb 126 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 127
e1e5366d 128 Documentation:
129 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
130 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
131 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
132
e6bcfe8e 133 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
134 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
135 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
136
00341d81 1375.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
138
0d7bf3a9 139 New features:
140 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
141 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
142 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
143 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
144 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
145
1ce9c7f6 146 Bug fixes:
147 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 148 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
149 over that.
a465926f 150 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
151 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
152 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 153
4c21ba3b 1545.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
155
27b0a436 156 New features:
157 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
158 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
159 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
160 get them passed through to the application.
161
d685f38e 162 Doumentation:
163 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
164 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
165 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
166 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
167
f4de8c99 168 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 169 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
170 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
171 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
172 context being passed throuh to make_immutable, causing it to not return
173 a value.
174 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
175 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
176 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 177
c7250231 178 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
179 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
180
849b1b24 1815.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
182
ab6c6d3d 183 New features:
184
185 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
186 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
187 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
188 whereas before you had to say:
189 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
190 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
191 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
192 the two.
193
cf49ace4 194 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
195 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
196 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
197 scripts in the application.
198 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
199 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
200 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
201 otherwise).
202
ab6c6d3d 203 Documentation:
204
205 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
206 to avoid confusion
207 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
208 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
209 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
210 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
211 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
212 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
213 and provide an alternative.
214
4ec26b6c 2155.90004 - 2011-10-11 17:12:00
216
65420d46 217 Bug fixes:
218
219 - Don't guess engine class names when setting an engine through
220 MyApp->engine_class.
221
a253d527 2225.90003 - 2011-10-05 08:32:00
9c331634 223 Bug fixes:
224
225 - Make default body reponses for 302s W3C compliant. RT#71237
226
e95b2b49 227 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
228 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
229 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
230 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
231 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
232 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
233
fabe0bc6 234 Enhancements:
235
236 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
237 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
238
5cb939e8 239 Backward compatibility fixes:
240
241 - Restore (an almost empty) Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to the dist for old
242 scripts which explictly require Catalyst::Engine::HTTP
243
14eb7697 244 Documentation fixes:
245
246 - Document Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication fails tests unless
247 you use the latest version with Catalyst 5.9
824a5eb0 248
d536010b 249 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method
14eb7697 250
824a5eb0 251 - Clarify use of uri_for further. RT#57011
252
836a51a2 2535.90002 - 2011-08-22 21:44:00
f7580cc4 254 Backward compatibility fixes:
255
256 - Deploying via mod_perl in some cases is fixed by making
257 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
258 circumstances.
259 https://github.com/miyagawa/Plack/issues/239
260
c47cd2ce 261 Documentation fixes:
262
263 - Fix incorrect example in Catalyst::PSGI.
264 - Add note that if you are using the PSGI engine, then $c->req->env
265 needs to become $c->engine->env when you upgrade.
266
3143ee5f 2675.90001 - 2011-08-15 22:42
268
269 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
270 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
271
272 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
273
274 Cut another release.

c20710a1 278 See Catalyst::Delta for the major changes in this release.
72697c1d 279
c20710a1 280 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 281
282 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 283
2f3f09d4 284 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 285
2f3f09d4 286 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
287 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
288 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 289
2f3f09d4 290 Documentation:
72697c1d 291
2f3f09d4 292 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
293 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 294
2f3f09d4 295 Changes:
cb1e348b 296
2f3f09d4 297 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
298 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
299 documented in Catalst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 300
cfb5d52a 3015.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 302
303 Backward compatibility fixes:
304
305 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
306 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
307
308 Bug fixes:
309
ab4df9f8 310 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
311 been made immutable.
312
0d47e040 313 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
314 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
315 example) Coro is loaded.
316
317 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
318 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
319
320 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
321 using MooseX::Deamonize
322
323 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
324 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
325 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
326 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
327 deployed in these environments.
328
c79bd3b0 329 Enhancements:
330
331 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
332 the remote request.
0d47e040 333
334 Documentation:
335 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
336 file for your application.
337
338 - Catalyst::Uprading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
339 engines clarified.
340
341 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 342 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 343 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
344
b40baecd 3455.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
346
f899107d 347 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 348 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
349 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
350
351 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
352
e3557c86 353 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
354 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 355
356 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
357 IO::Handle's behaviour.
358
359 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
360 was not breaking out correctly
361
f899107d 362 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
363 to also work in the $c->component method.
364
5ff374b5 365 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
366 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
367 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
368 mode.
2e4a8275 369 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 370
52d65afe 371 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
372
373 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
374
375 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
376 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
377 names.
378
379 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
380
1f440f55 3815.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
382
383 Bug fixes:
384 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
385 not being installed.
386
387 Refactoring:
388 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
389 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
390 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
391
aceee8b5 3925.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
393
2cd94c07 394 Bug fixes:
395 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
396
397 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
398 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
399 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 400
2cd94c07 401 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 402
2cd94c07 403 Known problems:
404 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
405 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
406 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
407 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 408
2cd94c07 409 Documentation:
410 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
411 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 412
07608083 4135.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 414
415 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 416 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
417 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
418 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
419 returning true.
420 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
421
0fd00e7b 422 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
423 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
424 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
425
9bf423ee 426 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
427 in Catalyst::execute
428
429 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
430 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
431 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
432
433 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
434 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
435 (e.g. /account/*)
436
437 New features:
438 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
439 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
440
441 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
442 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
443 developers without changing their application code.
444
45cab07f 4455.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
446
718e6314 447 Bug fixes:
448 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
449 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
450 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
451 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
452 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
453
6ca73485 454 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
455 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
456
7258c943 4575.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
458
459 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
460
461 Removed features:
462
463 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
464 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
465 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
466 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
467 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
468 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
469 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
470
471 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
472 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
473 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
474 class, please tell us *now*.
475
94edbd2c 4765.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
477
8865ee12 478 New features:
479 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
480 title.
2af2a5bf 481 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
482 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
483 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
484 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
485 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
486 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 487
c046f519 488 Bug fixes:
489 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
490 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 491 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
492 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
493 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
494 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
495 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 496 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 497 failing case.
efc2aac0 498 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
499 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
500 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
501 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
502 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
503 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
504 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
505 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 506
fa325a7d 507 Documentation:
508 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
509 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)

512
513 New features:
4d723d12 514 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
515 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
516 confused.
517
47990d3f 518 Warning fixes:
519 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 520 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.

808db1d6 524 Bug fixes:
525 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
526
7f891e1e 527 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
528 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
529
b2910653 530 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl

538
2afd1ea3 539 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 540 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
541 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
542 load Utils before MyApp.pm
543
544 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
545 application
546
547 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
548
2afd1ea3 549 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
550 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
551 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
552 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
553 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 554
1f94dc3a 555 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
556 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 557
9c64b93a 558 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
559 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
560 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
561
ab83907b 562 Refactoring:
563 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
564 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components

573
13c565fe 574 New features:
575 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
576 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
577 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
578 the default action creation.
579
f5325631 580 Bug fixes:
581 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
582 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 583 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
584 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 585 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 586 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
587 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 588

7aba3b2d 5965.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
597
598 Bug fixes:
599 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
600 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
601 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
602 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
603 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
604
605 New features:
606 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
607 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
608
609 Documentation:
610 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
611 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
612 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
613 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
614
e3a7414d 6155.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27

46b58c90 617 Bug fixes:
671123ba 618 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
619 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
620 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 621 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
622 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 623 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
624 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 625 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 626
0319ec68 627 New features:
628 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
629 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
630 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
631 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 632 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
633 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 634 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 635 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 636
8fa9321c 637 Documentation:
638 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
639 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
640
1f52c1d2 641 Cleanups:
642 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
643 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
644 $Catalyst::VERSION.

647
025d09f9 648 New features:
649 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
650 the content type and content length if available.
651
13311c16 652 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 653 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 654 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
655 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
656 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
657 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 658 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 659 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
660 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 661 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
662 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 663 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
664 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
665 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 666
13e46699 667 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 668 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
669 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 670 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
671 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 672
d5c5d96f 6735.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
674
52e23ad4 675 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 676 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
d5c5d96f 677 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 charracters.
52e23ad4 678

f0bb41af 6855.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
686
2689f8a4 687 Bug fixed:
688 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
689 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
690 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
691 which should not be encoded.
692 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
693 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
694
695 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
696 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
697 any set of args/captures.
698
f54950f5 699 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
700 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
701
0ff92c67 702 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been
703 removed.
c2f4efce 704
705 Documentation:
0ff92c67 706 - Improve the documentation about -Home and how Catalyst finds the home path

4113e1bb 718 in HTTP::Request::AsCGI.
ca78941c 719
c9ec25f8 720 Documentation:

c8083f4e 722 - Clarify documentation about debug
c9ec25f8 723
955d6da6 724 Deprecations:
725 - Saying use Catalyst::Test; (without an application name or () to stop
726 the importer running is now deprecated and will issue a warning.
727 You should be saying use Catalyst::Test ();

733 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
734 MyApp::View::HTML).
735
e1d59dc4 736 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 737 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.
1565e158 738 - Fix the debug dump for applications which use Catalyst::Plugin::Session
739 (RT#52898)
b760ac3d 740 - Fix regression in the case where mod_rewrite is being used to rewrite
741 requests into a path below your application base introduced with the
742 %2F related fixes in 5.80014_02.
30b70903 743 - Do not crash on SIGHUP if Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run is not passed the
744 argv key in the options hash.
745 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
746 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
747 with the correct options on SIGHUP.
b1ccae0c 748 - Require new MooseX::MethodAttributes to be compatible with Moose
749 versions >= 0.93_01
e6e2ba11 750 - Require new MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to be compatible with Moose
751 versions >= 0.93_01
e1d59dc4 752
3f07296e 753 Cleanups:
754 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
755 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
756 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
757 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
758 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

b42b9094 764 - Fix slurping a file to work correctly with binary on Win32 in the
765 encoding test controller.
e66329da 766
767 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
768
82701bda 769 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
770 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 771 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
772 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
773 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 774 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 775 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 776 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
777 some apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
778 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
779 URI.
754e86c6 780 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 781
c96cdcef 782 New features:
e66329da 783
c96cdcef 784 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
785 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
786 less packed with information of no use.

795 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
796 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 797 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI

ef546d1e 8045.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 805 Bug fixes:
806 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
807 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
808 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
809 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
810 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 811 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 812 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
813 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
814 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 815 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
816 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
817 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
818 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 819 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 820 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 821

c4efaa54 830
831 Bug fixes:
832 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
833 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
834 on the old behaviour.
835
836 Refactoring / cleanups:
837 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
838 are deprecated and now issue warnings.

568e11a2 8405.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
841
9f16fdf2 842 Bug fixes:
843 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
844 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
845 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 846 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
847 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 848 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 849 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 850 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 851 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
852 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
853 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 854 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
855 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
856 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
857 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
03f5f578 858 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captrues)
859 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
860 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
861 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 862
d71da6fe 863 Documentation:
864 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 865 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 866 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
867 deprecated and causes warnings).
868 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
869 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
870 in the correct order.
871 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
872 context.
08a2c908 873 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 874 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 875 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 876
ab86b480 877 New features:
878 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 879 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 880 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
881 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 882 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
883 distributions
10d77181 884 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
885 exception classes need to implement.
886 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
887 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
888 use it.
9f16fdf2 889
647a3de1 890 Refactoring / cleanups:
891 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
892 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
893 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
894 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
895 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
896 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 897 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.

85fc6206 901 Bug fixes:
902 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
903 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
904 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
905 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
906 method.
907 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
908 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.

913 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
914 warnings.
297ff4ce 915
916 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 917 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
918 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
919 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
920 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 921 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

5d94e8f9 925 Bug fixes:
926 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
927 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 928 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
929 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 930 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
931 is returned to 'actions'.
932 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
933 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 934
935 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 936 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 937 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 938
939 Tests:
940 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
941 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
942 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

945
9d59dde8 946 Bug fixes:
947 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
948 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
949 installed in @INC.

f72168b7 9515.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 952
953 Bug fixes:
954 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
955 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
956 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

966
4ffa3785 967 Bug fixes:
968 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
969 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 970 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
971 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
972 tests.
2f6049f2 973 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 974 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 975 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 976 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
977 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
978 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 979 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
980 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 981 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
982 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
983 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 984 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 985 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 986
371c6f1a 987 Refactoring / cleanups:

b0a32aba 990 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 991 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 992 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 993 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
994 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)

996 New features:
d05e45ce 997 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
998 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 999 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1000 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1001 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1002 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1003 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1004 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1005 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1006 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1007 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1008 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1009 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1010 the request.
371c6f1a 1011
1fe85999 1012 Documentation:
1013 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1014 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1015 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
7e743798 1016 - Fix POD refering to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1f851263 1021 Bug fixes:
1022 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1023 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1024 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1025 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1026 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1027 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1028 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1029 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1030 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1031 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1032 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1033
a375a206 1034 New features:
1035 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1036 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1037 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1038 URI.

3c9b6867 1042 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1043 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1044 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1045 applications.
655dfc2a 1046 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1047 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1048 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1049 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1050 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1051 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1052 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1053 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1054 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1055 (jasonk in RT#42816)

1062 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1063 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1064 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1065 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1066 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1067
371c6f1a 1068 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1069 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1070 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1071 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1072 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1073 error message.
1074 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1075 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1076 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1077 Fixes RT#47366
1078 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1079 again in Catalyst::Test

545e1e3a 1096 loading
f66edc15 1097 - Tests for this
dd97c1ac 1098 - Be stricter about arguments to Args attributes for Chained actions,
1099 so that they blow up on load instead of causing undefined behavior
545e1e3a 1100 later on
dd97c1ac 1101 - Tests for this
27042f8b 1102 - Prefer Path actions with a smaller (or set) number of Args (caelum)

545e1e3a 1128 environment
1129 - Require Moose 0.78 to fix metaclass incompatibility issues
c98492ae 1130 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.10 and use
1131 Moose::Meta::Class->initialize rather than Moose->init_meta to fix
545e1e3a 1132 bugs related to having a 'meta' method in your controller
df3956bf 1133 - Fix cases where your application failing to compile could cause perl
545e1e3a 1134 to report 'Unknown Error'
de144724 1135 - Support adding Moose::Roles to the plugin list. These are applied to
545e1e3a 1136 MyApp after plugins have been pushed onto @ISA
341620d5 1137 - Fix calling $c->req->parameters as the first thing you do when
545e1e3a 1138 parse_on_demand is on

e262f38e 1151 AGGREGATE_TESTS environment variable is set and a recent
545e1e3a 1152 Test::Aggregate is available.
b553e30c 1153 - Bump to MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.09, to gain the
cf37d21a 1154 get_nearest_methods_with_attributes method allowing methods without
b553e30c 1155 attributes in a subclass to override those with attributes in a
84848664 1156 superclass. This fixes CatalystX::CRUD's method of overriding /
545e1e3a 1157 disabling functionality from base controllers.
1158 - Bump HTTP::Request::AsCGI dependency to avoid broken version
b553e30c 1159 - Bump Moose dependency to latest version to fix metaclass

545e1e3a 1167 Catalyst::Upgrading based on feedback from kiffin
b6f3ffcb 1168 - If you make your application class immutable and turn off
1169 constructor inlining, Catalyst will die and tell you pass
1170 the (replace_constructor => 1) argument to
2c4d213f 1171 make_immutable. (Dave Rolsky)
e262f38e 1172
b8123bba 11735.80002 2009-04-22 01:28:36
4cb5d29f 1174 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
1175 turning debuging on if defined, rather than if set.
1176 They now force debugging on or off, taking precedence over
545e1e3a 1177 configuration in your application.
1178 - Tests for this
05d79b22 1179 - pass replace_constructor to the immutable call to ensure
1180 applications get a Moose constructor rather than a C::A one

13c6b4cc 1214 - Tests for this
02298d3a 1215 - Change the $c->visit and $c->go methods to optionally take
545e1e3a 1216 CaptureArgs, making them useful to call ActionChains with
02298d3a 1217 - Tests for this (radek)
1218 - Fix _invoke_as_component method to find the proper action instance
1219 for dispatchable actions so that ->visit or ->going to ActionChains
545e1e3a 1220 with qw/Class::Name method_name/ works correctly
02298d3a 1221 - Tests for this (radek)
f2e13bbd 1222 - Added Catalyst::Test::ctx_request to be able to inspect
1223 the context object after a request is made (Jos Boumans)

1228 test application so that the main TestApp isn't polluted with
545e1e3a 1229 spurious warnings
1230 - Add a warning for the old ::[MVC]:: style naming scheme
1231 - Test for this
2d9f9c8d 1232 - Kill Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT warnings for the Catalyst:: namespace
545e1e3a 1233 in production versions

545e1e3a 1235 the correct metaclass
4d0270d3 1236 - Make MyApp.pm restartable by unsetting setup_finished in
545e1e3a 1237 the restarter process
65b708a6 1238 - Non-naive implementation of making mutable on restart using
545e1e3a 1239 B::Hooks::OP::Check::StashChange if installed
1240 - Tests for this
65b708a6 1241 - Naive implementation of making all components mutable in the
1242 forked restart watcher process so native Moose apps using
545e1e3a 1243 immutable restart correctly.
1244 - Tests for this
107d0ba0 1245 - Bump Moose dependency to 0.70 so that we avoid nasty surprises
545e1e3a 1246 with is_class_loaded and perl 5.80 when you Moosify MyApp.pm
8f58057d 1247 - Clarify that request arguments aren't unescaped automatically

545e1e3a 1257 changes. Also depend on the latest Class::MOP.
1258 - Add $c->uri_for_action method.
1259 - Don't stringify the meta method. Use its name instead.
e7924bb5 1260 - Use MooseX::MethodAttributes::Inheritable to contain action
1261 attributes. This means that attributes are now represented in the MOP,
545e1e3a 1262 allowing method modifiers on actions to work as expected.
e7924bb5 1263 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
1264 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace
1265 subroutine attributes for action declerations with an alternate
545e1e3a 1266 syntax.
e7924bb5 1267 - Instantiate correct sub-class of Moose::Meta::Class for non-Moose
1268 components where Catalyst forces the creation of a metaclass instance.
1269 This is more correct, and avoids metaclass incompatibility in complex
545e1e3a 1270 cases
1271 - Tests for this
1272 - Use of deprecated Catalyst::Base now warns.
1273 - Add uri_with tests

1479 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
1480 throw warnings for two reasons:

1483 instead
df3956bf 1484 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 1485 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
1486 method with a regex as the argument
