900e055b 115.90_121 - 2018-10-22
216fe9c9 12 - use the :utf8_strict (PerlIO::utf8_strict) rather than :encoding file handle
13 layer to handle decoding uploads, as a performance boost.
14 - fix handling of decoding uploaded files. this fixes the usage of sysread
15 on :utf8 handles, and reenables the tests on all perl versions. Fixes CPAN

56 (hobbs++)
57 - do not require MXRWO if Moose is new enough to have cored it (ether++)
58 - documentation improvements (ether++)

62 - Better debug output when using Hash::MultiValue (tremor69++)
f7f3681c 63 - Fixes for detecting debug terminal size (simonamor++)
f65b6e93 64
7213dd01 655.90114 - 2016-12-19
66 - Fixed regression introduced in the last version (5.90113) which caused
67 application to hang when the action private name contained a string
68 like 'foo/bar..html'. If you are running 5.90113 you should consider this
69 a required update.
59e4fb5d 70 - Tweaked travis CI script.
7213dd01 71
ffe72ea6 725.90113 - 2016-12-15
73 - Fixed issue with $controller->action_for when targeting an action in
74 a namespace nested inside the current controller and the current controller
75 is a 'root' controller.
76 - Enhanced $controller->action_for so that you can reference the 'parent'
77 controller via relative path (eg ->action_for('../foo')).
78 - Backcompat fix for people that made the mistake of doing $c->{stash}
d7325e05 79 - Sort controllers in setup_actions so cross-controller precedence is
80 consistent.
81
a050c28a 825.90112 - 2016-07-25
0fb9642d 83 - Spelling fixes from Debian group.
a050c28a 84 - Fixed regression introduced in last release that caused the code to crap out
85 if you set the encoding to 'undef'.
86
bde75a9e 875.90111 - 2016-07-20
88 - Improved documentation around some of the unicode changes; tests (melmothx++)
89
de2e9a6f 905.90110 - 2016-07-20
103f2d96 91 - Better catching of HTTP style exceptions so that you can reliable use one to
92 override many core method.
93 - Documention on better ways to catch and handle Unicode errors
94 - We now check the unicode in your URL request queries and raise an error if the
95 check fails. This was done to be consistent with what we do in other parts of
96 the code (such as in args, or POSTed parameters). If this breaks your code in
97 ways you don't want to fix, you may disable this using the global configuration
98 setting, "do_not_check_query_encoding".
99 - Removed configuration setting, "decode_query_using_global_encoding" since it no
100 longer does anything useful. Query decoding follows from whatever you set the
101 global encoding to, unless you specify an alternative or to not decode.
102
5df9a4c5 1035.90106 - 2016-07-05
104 - Fixed regression in debug screen rendering of the private names in chained
105 actions caused by commit 5dd46e24eedec447bdfbc4061ed683b5a17a7b0c.
106 - Fixed incorrect date entered for the release of 5.90105
107 - Fixed some incorrect code in a test case that might be causing test fails
108 in some configurations.
109
1105.90105 - 2016-06-08
2d4da72c 111 - Tweak some test cases to try and prevent them from failing in limited cases.
112 - Changed how we compose traits onto the response, request, and stats class so
113 that we compose just once at setup time (performance optimization). Also added
114 a debug screen at startup to display composed classes to help with debugging.
cc7af078 115 - Fixed a regressed caused by the changes we made to the way ->state works so that
fd1fe4c7 116 now when you forward to an action and that action throws an exception, $c->state
cc7af078 117 is set to 0, instead of the value of the exeption (this is to be as indicated by
fd1fe4c7 118 the documentation). (cventers++ for reported bug and test case).
18adb1ed 119 - Changed the code that detects if you try to set HTTP headers after headers are
120 finalized to not warn if you are just requested the response header state. Tweaked
121 this error message a bit to help people understand it.
2d4da72c 122
163b3de6 1235.90104 - 2016-04-04
124 - Merged pull request #131, fix for noisy debug logs when used type constraints
125 in your actions. Additional changes to the developer debug screen output to
126 improve reporting details.
127 - Merged pull request #133, fix for case when a file upload filename contains
128 wide characters which caused the filename to not appear in the uploads hash.
129
ed60d917 1305.90103 - 2015-11-12
4c71cf1b 131 - More documentation fixes (thanks to the debian maintainers and melmothx++)
132 - Fixed the way we parse subroutine attribute values to fix a regression
133 introduced in 5.90102. This is a recommended upgrade (tsibley++, mst++)
134 - Fixed regression around auto actions that escape by throwing an exception
135 which was introduced in the last release.
ed906c97 136 - Bumped namespace::autoclean dep to latest since tests require -except
4c71cf1b 137
b8ef930c 1385.90102 - 2015-10-29
e43b00f9 139 - Better warnings when there's an error reading the psgi.input (billmosley++)
140 - Fixed spurious warnings in uri_for when using no arguments (melmothx++ and
141 paultcochrane++)
b29d02fe 142 - Documentation improvements (paultcochrane++)
1f8714f6 143 - Improvements to 'search_extra' configuration and tests around using
144 uri_for as a class method (cngarrison++)
2f0f7ba0 145 - Fix when Path() is set and not geting registered as action (grim8634++)
e459bd03 146 - $c->state is now preserved over actions in a chain, and across begin,
147 auto, ->forward and ->detach.
e43b00f9 148
d2995a76 1495.90101 - 2015-09-04
150 - Fixed a regression introduced in the last release which caused test
151 case failure when using a version of Perl 5.14 or older.
152
5e7e6b27 1535.90100 - 2015-08-24
59051400 154 - Document using namespace::autoclean with controllers that have actions
155 with type constraints.
156 - Look for type constraints in super classes and consumed roles.
bde334da 157 - Change the way the stash middleware works to no longer localize $psgi_env.
5e7e6b27 158 - If you delegate control to a sub Catalyst application, that application
159 may now return information to the parent application via the stash.
ce3b4f10 160 - Fix for RT#106373 (Issue when you try to install and also have an old
f4d7cf1e 161 version of Test::Mechanize::WWW::Catalyst)
ce3b4f10 162
a1dba4cf 1635.90097 - 2015-07-28
082b4421 164 - $c->uri_for now defines a final argument for setting the URL fragment
165 /URL anchor. This is now the canonical approach to setting a fragment
166 via uri_for.
a1dba4cf 167 - Reverted how we treat $c->uri_for($path) where $path is a string. When
168 we introduced the UTF-8 work we started encoding stringy paths, which
169 breaks code that did not expect that. We now consider stringy $path to
170 be 'expert' mode and you are expected to perform all nessary encoding.
082b4421 171
ed5a562b 1725.90096 - 2015-07-27
173 - Fixed regression introduced in previous release that prevented a URI
174 fragment from getting properly encoded. Added more tests around this
175 to define behavior better.
176
3f955f48 1775.90095 - 2015-07-27
178 - Minor test case tweak that I hope solve some minor hiesenfails reported
179 on CPAN testers.
180 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/109) added som
181 additional directions to how to setup a development sandbox
182 - (https://github.com/perl-catalyst/catalyst-runtime/pull/108) fix bug in
183 encoding where URI fragment seperator '#' in ->uri_for would get encoded.
3231d3b2 184
b0ff1be8 1855.90094 - 2015-07-24
186 - When there is a multipart POST request and the parts have extended
187 HTTP headers, try harder to decode and squeeze a meaningful value
188 out of it before giving up and crying. Updated docs and tests to
9f1fb723 189 reflect this change. This should solve problems when your clients
190 are posting multipart form values with special character sets.
bea82ea1 191 - Fixed issue where last_error actually returned the first error. Took
192 the change to add a 'pop_errors' to give the inverse of shift_errors.
386f04a2 193 - Merged Pull Requests:

b0ff1be8 200
80ba671f 2015.90093 - 2015-05-29
202 - Fixed a bug where if you used $res->write and then $res->body, the
203 contents of body would be double encoded (gshank++).
204
5af5f973 2055.90092 - 2015-05-19
7dac038c 206 - Allows you to use a namespace suffix for request, response and stats
207 class traits. Docs and tests for this.
5af5f973 208 - Refactor the change introduced in 5.90091 to solve reported issues (for
209 example Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API fails its tests) and to be a more
210 conservative refactor (new code more closely resembles the orginal code
211 that has proven to work for years.)
7dac038c 212
2135.90091 - 2015-05-08
8860df07 214 - Fixed a bug where if an injected component expanded sub components, those
215 sub components would not show up in the startup debug dev console (
216 even though they were actually created).
217
7dac038c 2185.90090 - 2015-04-29
42d0a52a 219 - Updated some documention in Catalyst::Request::Upload to clarify behavior
220 that RT ticket reported as confusing or unexpected
221 - Merged all changes from 5.90089_XXX development cycle.
222 - removed a mistaken use of Test::Most, which is not a core Catalyst
223 dependency. Used Test::More instead.
224
630ad67c 2255.90089_004 - 2015-04-28
9e7f288e 226 - Added swanky github badges.
227 - Reverted a change to how the stats engine is setup that was incorrect.
ea66d7ea 228 - New application setup hook 'config_for' which allows one to get the
229 canonical application configuration for a controller, view or model, or
230 a plugin. Can also be used to override and adapt what configuration is
231 retrieved.
232
718a1619 2335.90089_003 - 2015-04-27
905679b8 234 - Fixed an issue where a delayed controller that did ACCEPT_CONTEXT would
235 raise an error when registering its actions.
718a1619 236 - Updated some documentation around route matching.
237 - refactored the setup of injected components to allow you to hook into
238 the injection and do custom injection types.
905679b8 239
1592e3ff 2405.90089_002 - 2015-04-17
75ce30d0 241 - Changed the way we check for presence of Type::Tiny in a test case to be
242 more explicit in the version requirement. Hopefully a fix for reported
243 test fail.
244 - When declaring type constraints in Args and CaptureArgs, if you want to
245 use a Moose builtin type (or a custom stringy type that you've already
246 defined and associated with the Moose::TypeRegistry) you must now quote
247 the type name. This is to clearly disambiguate between Moose stringy types
248 and imported types.
d9f0a350 249 - Additional changes to type constraint detection to between determine when a
250 type constraint for reference types have a measured number of arguments or
251 not. clarify restriction on reference type constraints.
ec4d7259 252 - Several bugs with type constraints and uri_for squashed. More test cases
253 around all the argument type constraints to tighten scope of action.
254 - NEW FEATURE: New method in Catalyst::Utils 'inject_component', which is a core
255 version of the previously external addon 'CatalystX::InjectComponent'. You should
256 start to convert your existing code which uses the stand alone version, since
cbe627b9 257 going forward only the core version will be supported. Also the core version in
258 Catalyst::Utils has an additional feature to compose roles into the injected
259 component.
ec4d7259 260 - NEW FEATURE: Concepts from 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator' have been moved to core
261 so we now have the follow application attributes 'request_class_traits',
262 'response_class_traits' and 'stats_class_traits' which allow you to compose
263 traits for these core Catalyst classes without needing to create subclasses. So
264 in general any request or response trait on CPAN that used 'CatalystX::RoleApplicator'
044e7667 265 should now just work with this core feature. Note that can also set thse roles
266 via new configuration keys, 'request_class_traits', 'response_class_traits'
98d049ef 267 and 'stats_class_traits'. If you use both configuration and application class methods,
268 they are combined.
3e560748 269 - NEW FEATURE: Core concepts from 'CatalystX::ComponentsFromConfig'. You can now
270 setup components directly from configuration. This could save you some effort and
271 creating 'empty' base classes in your Model/View and Controller directories. This
272 feature is currently limited in that you can only configure components that are
273 'true' Catalyst components (but you may use Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to proxy
274 stand alone classes...).
ec4d7259 275 - Only create a stats object if you are using stats. This is a minor performance
276 optimization, but there's a small chance it is a breaking change, so please
277 report any stats related issues.
3e560748 278 - Added a developer mode warning if you call a component with arguments that does not
279 expect arguments (for example calling $c->model('Foo', 1,2,3,4) where Myapp::Model::Foo
718a1619 280 does not ACCEPT_CONTEXT. Only components that ACCEPT_CONTEXT do anything with
3e560748 281 passed arguments in $c->controller/view/model.
044e7667 282 - Change the way components are setup so that you can now rely on all components
283 when setting up a component. Previously application scoped components could not
284 reliably use an existing application scoped component as a dependecy for initialization.
75ce30d0 285
2865.90089_001 - 2015-03-26
4125a7aa 287 - New development branch synched with 5.90085.
ec4d7259 288 - NEW FEATURE: Type Constraints on Args/CaptureArgs. Allows you to declare
480d94b5 289 a Moose, MooseX::Types or Type::Tiny named constraint on your Arg or
290 CaptureArg.
cbe13760 291 - When using $c->uri_for (or the derived $c->uri_for_action) and the target
292 action has type constrainted args (or captures), verify that the proposed
4125a7aa 293 URL matches the defined args. In general $c->uri_for will be a bit more
294 noisy if the supplied arguments are not correct.
cbe13760 295 - New top level document on Route matching. (Catalyst::RouteMatching). This
4125a7aa 296 document is still in development, but is worth review and comments.
d91504e3 297
9f3e69ee 2985.90085 - 2015-03-25
7a504990 299 - Small change to Catalyst::Action to prevent autovivication of Args value (dim1++)
300 - Minor typo fixes (Abraxxa++)
301 - Make sure than when using chained actions and when more than one action
302 matches the same path specification AND has Args(0), that we follow the
303 "in a tie, the last action defined wins" rule. There is a small chance
304 this is a breaking change for you. See Catalyst::Upgrading for more.
305 You may use the application configuration setting "use_chained_args_0_special_case"
9f3e69ee 306 to disable this new behavior, if you must for back-compat reasons.
307 - Added PATCH HTTP Method action attribute shortcut.
6cf77e11 308 - Several new configuration options aimed to give improved backwards compatibility
309 for when your URL query parameters or keywords have non UTF-8 encodings.
310 See Catalyst::Upgrading.
7a504990 311
8479713c 3125.90084 - 2015-02-23
0d94e986 313 - Small change to the way body parameters are created in order to prevent
314 trying to create parameters twice.
c4d66db2 315 - Use new HTTP::Body and code updates to fix issue when POSTed params have
0d94e986 316 non UTF-8 charset encodings or otherwise complex upload parts that are not
8479713c 317 file uploads. In these cases when Catalyst can't determine what the value of
4f04ee56 318 a form upload is, will return an instance of Catalyst::Request::PartData with
8479713c 319 all the information need to figure it out. Documentation about this corner
b16a64af 320 case. For RT https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=101556
0d94e986 321 - Two new application configuration parameters 'skip_body_param_unicode_decoding'
322 and 'skip_complex_post_part_handling' to assist you with any backward
323 compatibility issues with all the new UTF8 work in the most recent stable
324 Catalyst. You may use these settings to TEMPORARILY disable certain new
325 features while you are seeking a long term fix.
c4d66db2 326
3275.90083 - 2015-02-16
90f231f1 328 - Fixed typo in support for OPTIONS method matching (andre++)
f382b264 329 - Stop using $env->{'plack.request.query'} as a query parsing optimization
4d94a93a 330 since 1) it doesn't belong to us and 2) there's subtle differences in the
331 way plack parses parameters and catalyst does. This fixes a bug when you
332 are using middleware that uses Plack::Request to do its thing. This change
333 might have subtle impact on query parsing. Please test this change!
90f231f1 334
7131401a 3355.90082 - 2015-01-10
67fd25bc 336 - Fixed a regression created in $response->from_psgi_response and test case
337 to prevent it happening again.
338
7131401a 3395.90081 - 2015-01-10
c7f85142 340 - created class attribute 'finalized_default_middleware' which determines
341 if the default middleware has been added to the stack yet or not. This
342 removes a horrible hack that polluted the configuration hash. Added
343 test case to prevent regressions.
344
7131401a 3455.90080 - 2015-01-09
f7fde75a 346 - Minor documentation corrections
347 - Make the '79 development series stable
348
d2000928 3495.90079_008 - 2015-01-07
350 - If we get a response set from $res->from_psgi_response and that response
351 has a charset for the content type, we clear encoding for the rest of the
aca337aa 352 response (avoid double encoding). Added more documentation around this.
51b34249 353 - Documentation updates and typo fixes across various UTF8 docs (Mark Ellis++)
d2000928 354
3555.90079_007 - 2015-01-07
da57fe99 356 - Merged from Stable (5.90079)
357 - reviewed and cleaned up UTF8 related docs
358 - replace missing utf8 pragma in Catalyst::Engine
a09b49d2 359 - Cleaned up spelling errors in various docs (abbraxxa++)
360 - New document Catalyst::UTF8 which attempts to summarize UTF8 and encoding
361 changes introduced in v5.90080.
da57fe99 362
b274486c 3635.90079_006 - 2015-01-02
4373973a 364 - Removed unneeded dependency on RenderView in new test case that was causing fails
ac1cf8d4 365 on CPAN testers that did not just happen to have that dependency already installed
366 - Updated copyright notices to 2015
367 - Documentation patches around the setup methods and clarification on on security
368 note posted a few months ago.
369 - Added my name to the contributors list
370
6dcc5307 3715.90079_005 - 2014-12-31
372 - Merged changes from 5.90078
77b5811a 373 - If configuration 'using_frontend_proxy' is set, we add the correct middleware
374 to the default middleware list. This way you get the correct and expected
375 behavior if you are starting your application via one of the generated scripts
376 or if you are calling MyApp->psgi_app. Previously if you started the application
377 with ->psgi_app (or to_app) we ignored this configuration option
378 - New configuration option 'using_frontend_proxy_path' which enables
379 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath on your application easily. Please note that
380 Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath is not an automatic dependency of Catalyst at
381 this time, so if you want this feature you should add it to your project dependency
382 list. This is done to avoid continued growth of Catalyst dependencies.
383 - Tweaks encoding docs a bit to get closer to final.
6dcc5307 384
c017b11b 3855.90079_004 - 2014-12-26
12982f86 386 - Starting adding some docs around the new encoding stuff
387 - Exposed the reqexp we use to match content types that need encoding via a
388 global variable.
389 - Added some test cases for JSON utf8 and tested file uploads with utf8.
6adc45cf 390 - Fixes to decoding on file upload filenames and related methods
391 - new methods on upload object that tries to do the right thing if we find
392 a character set on the upload and its UTF8.
393 - new additional helper methods on the file upload object.
394 - new helper methods has_encoding and clear_encoding on context.
4373973a 395 - Method on Catalyst::Response to determine if the response should be encoded.
6adc45cf 396 - Warn if changing headers only if headers are finalized AND the response callback
4373973a 397 has already been called (and headers already sent).
6adc45cf 398 - Centralized rules about detecting if we need to automatically encode or not and
399 added tests around cases when you choose to skip auto encoding.
12982f86 400
501605db 4015.90079_003 - 2014-12-03
402 - Make sure all tests run even if debug mode is enabled.
403 - Fixed issue with middleware stash test case that failed on older Perls
404
bd4b086b 4055.90079_002 - 2014-12-02
406 - Fixed typo in Makefile.PL which borked the previous distribution. No other
407 changes.
408
4095.90079_001 - 2014-12-02
460bb45b 410 - MyApp->to_app is now an alias for MyApp->psgi_app in order to better support
411 existing Plack conventions.
4373973a 412 - Modify Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response to allow the first argument to
b194746d 413 be an object that does ->as_psgi.
4373973a 414 - Modified Catalyst::Middleware::Stash to be a shallow copy in $env. Added some
4b0b7489 415 docs. Added a test case to make sure stash keys added in a child application
416 don't bubble back up to the main application.
d047b87b 417 - We no longer use Encode::is_utf8 since it doesn't work the way we think it
418 does... This required some UTF-8 changes. If your application is UTF-8 aware
419 I highly suggest you test this release.
4373973a 420 - We always do utf8 decoding on incoming URLs (before we only did so if the server
e5a5e80b 421 encoding was utf8. I believe this is correct as per the w3c spec, but please
422 correct if incorrect :)
423 - Debug output now shows utf8 characters if those are incoming via Args or as
424 path or pathparts in your actions. query and body parameter keys are now also
4373973a 425 subject to utf8 decoding (or as specified via the encoding configuration value).
e5a5e80b 426 - lots of UTF8 changes. Again we think this is now more correct but please test.
00038a21 427 - Allow $c->res->redirect($url) to accept $url as an object that does ->as_string
428 which I think will ease a common case (and common bug) and added documentation.
e8361cf8 429 - !!! UTF-8 is now the default encoding (there used to be none...). You can disable
dd096a3a 430 this if you need to with MyApp->config(encoding => undef) if it causes you trouble.
431 - Calling $c->res->write($data) now encodes $data based on the configured encoding
432 (UTF-8 is default).
e8361cf8 433 - $c->res->writer_fh now returns Catalyst::Response::Writer which is a decorator
4373973a 434 over the PSGI writer and provides an additional method 'write_encoded' that just
e8361cf8 435 does the right thing for encoding your responses. This is probably the method
436 you want to use.
342d2169 437 - New dispatch matching attribute: Scheme. This lets you match a route based on
438 the incoming URI scheme (http, https, ws, wss).
439 - If $c->uri_for targets an action or action chain that defines Scheme, use that
440 scheme for the generated URI object instead of just using whatever the incoming
441 request uses.
460bb45b 442
a24232f9 4435.90079 - 2015-01-02
444 - Removed dependency from test case that we don't install for testing (
445 rt #101243)
446 - updated year in copyright notices
447
b94f8e72 4485.90078 - 2014-12-30
449 - POD corrections (sergey++)
4373973a 450 - New configuration option to disable the HTTP Exception passthrough feature
b94f8e72 451 introduced in 5.90060. You can use this if that feature is causing you
452 trouble. (davewood++);
453 - Some additional helper methods for dealing with errors.
454 - More clear exception when $request->body_data tries to parse malformed POSTed
455 data. Added documentation and tests around this.
456
ee2c12fd 4575.90077 - 2014-11-18
458 - We store the PSGI $env in Catalyst::Engine for backcompat reasons. Changed
459 this so that the storage is a weak reference, so that it goes out of scope
460 with the request. This solves an issue where items in the stash (now in the
461 PSGI env) would not get closed at the end of the request. This caused some
462 regression, primarily in custom testing classes.
463
9c86666a 4645.90076 - 2014-11-13
465 - If throwing an exception object that does the code method, make sure that
466 method returns an expected HTTP status code before passing it on to the
467 HTTP Exception middleware.
468
0810283f 4695.90075 - 2014-10-06
470 - Documentation patch for $c->req->param to point out the recently discovered
471 potential security issues: http://blog.gerv.net/2014/10/new-class-of-vulnerability-in-perl-web-applications/
472 - You don't need to install this update, but you should read about the exploit
473 and review if your code is vulnerable. If you use the $c->req->param interface
474 you really need to review this exploit.
475
c027f9c4 4765.90074 - 2014-10-01
477 - Specify Carp minimum version to avoid pointless test fails (valy++)
478
2be363b7 4795.90073 - 2014-09-23
480 - Fixed a regression caused by the last release where we broke what happened
481 when you tried to set request parameters via $c->req->param('foo', 'bar').
482 You shouldn't do this, but I guess I shouldn't have busted it either :)
ad9e8de9 483 - Allow the term_width to be regenerated (see Catalyst::Utils::term_width,
484 Frew Schmidt)
7d670fb4 485 - More aggressive skipping of value decoding if the value is undefined.
2be363b7 486
4f96d61c 4875.90072 - 2014-09-15
488 - In the case where you call $c->req->param(undef), warn with a more useful
489 warning (now gives the line of your code that called param with the undef,
490 so you can go to hunt it out.
491
d5765d73 4925.90071 - 2014-08-10
493 - Travis config now performs basic reverse dependency testing.
494 - Restored deprecated 'env' code in Engine.pm b/c it is still being used out
495 in the wild (Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10023) - (removed in 5.90070)
496 - Reverted changes to debug log/handling (5.90069_003) to fix
497 rev dep Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple-0.32 test suite.
4373973a 498 - Added Italian translation of default error.
d5765d73 499
b96bd9f1 5005.90070 - 2014-08-07
501 - Retagged previous release as stable; no changes
502
1893c194 5035.90069_004
504 - Fixed typo in middleware stash that was causing older Perls to fail
505 certain tests. No other changes.
506
310c2a39 5075.90069_003
508 - The default log level is now 'info', not 'debug'.
9c38cb50 509 - Finished merging all the encoding plugin code to core code. The encoding
510 plugin is now just an empty package. Also tried to improve encoding docs
511 a bit.
512 - Some additional changes to the stash middleware that should not break
513 anything new.
eae29f6e 514 - Documentation around using Sendfile type http headers with a filehandle
515 type response.
516 - Merged from master branch to pick up some additional fixes and documentation
517 improvements.
9c38cb50 518
91789f94 5195.90069_002
3e6ee020 520 - Catalyst stash functionality has been moved to Middleware. It should
521 work entirely the same when used as a context method, please report
522 questions or problems!
523 - Removed code related to supporting the long deprecated stand alone
524 PSGI Engine. If you are still using this you code is now broken.
525 Luckily you can just stop using it and likely everything will work
526 under the new PSGI support built into Catalyst for several years.
f9bdcfac 527 - 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' now defaults to true. If this behavior
528 causes you issues, you can explicitly turn it off by setting it to a
529 non true defined value (0 is a good option here).
91789f94 530 - When throwing an http style exception, make sure we properly flush the
531 existing log and report other errors in the error stack.
532
1b526dcc 5335.90069_001
41bf18c5 534 - Set encoding on STDERR when encoding is set in config
535 - documentation and test fixes
536
8f3c0676 5375.90065 - 2014-06-04
1b526dcc 538 - The Catalyst::Log object now has 'autoflush' (which defaults to true) and
539 causes log messages to be written out in real-time. This is helpful for the
540 test/dev server to be able to see messages during startup as well as before
541 the end of the request when the log is flushed.
07bfde47 542 - Fix spelling, grammar and structural errors in POD
be7d4054 543 - Remove redundant ->setup call in t/head_middleware.t RT#95361
c13f6e7e 544 - Fix test failures when running under CATALYST_DEBUG. RT#95358
07bfde47 545
13adef05 5465.90064 - 2014-05-05
547 - Fix for mindless broken tests on Win32 (Haarg++).
548 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
549
5505.90063 - 2014-05-01
36ee8a91 551 - 'end' and other special actions won't catch HTTP style exceptions anymore.
552 - Fix bug where Catalyst did not properly detect the terminal width when in
553 debug mode and thus making the debug output narrow and hard to read.
554 - Documentation corrections for Util methods around localized PSGI $env.
59c1748a 555 - Improvements to auto detection of terminal width.
556 - Updating deprecation list to include Class::Load and ensure_class_loaded
b11b6345 557 - Added a few docs around middleware and corrected the order that middleware
558 is loaded when registering it via ->setup_middleware instead of via
559 configuration.
560 - Added a test case to make sure default middleware order is correct.
36ee8a91 561s
5625.90062 - 2014-04-14
6e94698d 563 - HTTP::Exception objects were not properly bubbled up to middleware since
564 there was some code in Catalyst that was triggering stringification.
565
c8ad8cbc 5665.90061 - 2014-03-10
567 - Reverted a change related to how plugins get initialized that was
568 introduced by a change in December.
569
de9bcba0 5705.90060 - 2014-02-07
571 - Same as 5.90059_006, just marking it as stable, no functional changes.
572
78acc1f7 573
26b42801 5745.90059_006 - 2014-02-06
a9dc0c7e 575 - MyApp->setup now returns $app to allow class method chaining.
4373973a 576 - New Util helper functional localize $env to make it easier to mount PSGI
9c7b6768 577 applications under controllers and actions. See Catalyst::Utils/PSGI Helpers.
26b42801 578 - NOTICE: Final Development release for Runner, unless significant issues are
579 raised. Please test.
a9dc0c7e 580
b8534a44 5815.90059_005 - 2014-01-28
9c7b6768 582 - Specify newest versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors
583 reported while installing.
0bab6d6c 5845.90059_004 - 2014-01-27
8e098614 585 - Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the
586 response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
587 - Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object
588 that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this
589 case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
3157d22a 590 - Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered
4373973a 591 deprecated immediately. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can
3157d22a 592 make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement
593 in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
0bab6d6c 594 - More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
595 - Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
596 - update copyright notices.
8e098614 597
7af15a33 5985.90059_003 - 2013-12-24
d2bb6f7f 599 - More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
7af15a33 600 - removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing
601 fails to install (sorry).
4715c214 602 - When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as
603 described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the
604 middleware deal with it.
d2bb6f7f 605
97e0c7c5 6065.90059_002 - 2013-12-21
46fff667 607 - We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather
608 than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a
609 delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack
610 middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of
611 server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or
612 properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like
613 Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if
614 you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things
aa20e9f5 615 to work much better.
616 - In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set
617 an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so
618 when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help
619 you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
620 - Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you
621 fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the
622 length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
623 - Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and
46aec47a 624 swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
625 - Merged fix for regressions from stable..
46fff667 626
78acc1f7 6275.90059_001 - 2013-12-19
628 - Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are
629 using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution
630 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application
631 will be broken.
632
5bb2a5b3 6335.90053 - 2013-12-21
634 - Reverted a change in the previous release that moved the setup_log phase
635 to after setup_config. This change was made to allow people to use
636 configuration that is late loaded (such as via the ConfigLoader Plugin)
637 to setup the plugin. However it also broke the ability to use the log
638 during plugin setup (ie, it breaks lots of plugins). Reverting the
639 change. See Catalyst::Delta for workarounds.
78acc1f7 640
7d01797b 6415.90052 - 2013-12-18
6f5cab0a 642
02352a28 643 - Fixed first block of startup debug messages missing when using a custom
644 logger that gets set at runtime, for example by overriding finalize_config
6f5cab0a 645 - Give a more descriptive error message when trying to load middleware that
646 does not exist.
647 - Change the way we initialize plugins to fix a bug where when using the
4373973a 648 popular ConfigLoader plugin, configs merged are not available for setting
6f5cab0a 649 up middleware and data handlers (and probably other things as well).
650
651 NOTE: This change might cause issues if you had code that was relying on the
652 broken behavior. For example external configuration that was being loaded to
653 late to have effect might now take effect. Please test you code carefully and
654 be aware of this possible issue </NOTE>.
655
3d3ea779 656 - You may now also call 'setup_middleware' as a package method if you think
657 that loading middleware via configuration is a weird or broken idea.
4373973a 658 - Various POD formatting fixed.
eda85460 659 - Improved some documentation about what type of filehandles that ->body can
660 accept and issues that might arise.
02352a28 661
707988f8 6625.90051 - 2013-11-06
4373973a 663 - Be more skeptical of the existence of $request->env to fix a regression
707988f8 664 introduced in Catalyst::Action::REST by the previous release
665
31bd6aec 6665.90050 - 2013-11-05
55119d7b 667 - Previously public predicates on the following attributes are now considered
668 private and their method names have been changed to follow Perl convention
669 for internal methods:
a3c9ab76 670
55119d7b 671 -- Catalyst::Request->has_io_fh ==> _has_io_fh
672 -- Catalyst::Request->has_env ==> _has_env
673 -- Catalyst::Response->has_write_fh ==> _has_write_fh
674
675 These are breaking changes but these methods were never documented and serve
676 no use for external code. If you are using thing, you need to make the noted
677 change (but please consider finding another way to do what you are trying to
678 do). t0m++ for code review of Hamburg branch.
c2fef52f 679
a61b6983 6805.90049_006 - 2013-11-04
681 - Fixed case where test could fail when Starman was partly installed (n0body++)
55119d7b 682 - Fixed missing date information in previous release
a61b6983 683
6845.90049_005 - 2013-10-31
4777b960 685 - NEW FEATURE: New Controller action attribute 'Consumes', which allows you
686 to specify the content type of the incoming request. This makes it easier
687 to create actions that only handle certain content type POST or PUT, such
688 as actions that only handle JSON or actions that only understand classic
689 HTML forms.
ba1734df 690 - NEW FEATURE: Request->body_data is now also populated from classic HTML
691 Forms using CGI::Struct to support nested data. For non nested data you
692 should use the classic ->body_parameters method.
f152ae23 693 - Removed PSGI $env keys that are added on the 'plack.request.*' namespace
694 since after discussion it was clear those keys are not part of the public
695 API. Keys removed: 'plack.request.query', 'plack.request.body',
696 'plack.request.merged' and 'plack.request.http.body'. Altered some test
697 cases to reflect this change.
4777b960 698
fd5fb3a8 6995.90049_004 - 2013-10-18
3efd4eb3 700 - JSON Data handler looks for both JSON::MaybeXS and JSON, and uses
4373973a 701 whichever is first (preferring to find JSON::MaybeXS). This should
3efd4eb3 702 improve compatibility as you likely already have one installed.
b635def4 703 - Fixed a warning in the server script (bokutin++)
704 - We now populate various Plack $env keys in order to play nice with
705 downstream middleware or plack apps (and to reduce processing if
706 those keys already exist). Keys added:
707 - plack.request.query
708 - plack.request.body
709 - plack.request.merged
710 - plack.request.http.body
9151a3bb 711 (NOTE: REMOVED IN 5.90049_005)
b635def4 712 - If incoming input (from a POST or PUT) is not buffered, create the
713 buffer and set the correct psgi env keys to note this for downstream
714 psgi apps / middleware. This should solve some issues where Catalyst
715 sucks up the body input but its not buffered so downstream apps can't
716 read it (for example FCGI does not buffer). We now also try to make
717 sure the body content input is reset to the start of the filehandle
718 so that we are polite to downstream middleware /apps.
d3ea94fc 719 - NEW FEATURE: Catalyst::Response can now pull response from a PSGI
720 specification response. This makes it easier to host external Plack
721 applications under Catalyst. See Catalyst::Response->from_psgi_response
88ba7793 722 - NEW FEATURE: New configuration option 'use_hash_multivalue_in_request'
723 will populate $request methods 'parameters', 'body_parameters' and
724 'query_parameters' with an instance of Hash::MultiValue instead of a
725 HashRef. This is used by Plack and is intended to reduce the need to
726 write defensive logic since you are never sure if an incoming parameter
727 is a scalar or arrayref.
16f0e988 728 - NEW FEATURE: We now experimentally support Net::Async::HTTP::Server
729 and IO-Async based event loops. Examples will follow.
3efd4eb3 730
b3070177 7315.90049_003 - 2013-09-20
732 - Documented the new body_data method added in the previous release
4373973a 733 - Merged from master many important bugfixes and forward compatibility
b3070177 734 updates, including:
735 - Use modern preferred method for Moose metaclass access and many other
736 small changes to how we use Moose for better forward compat (ether++)
737 - Killed some evil use of $@ (ether++)
738 - spelling fixes and documentation updates (ether++), (gerda++)
739 - use Test::Fatal over Test::Exception (ether++)
740 - Misc. test case fixes to modernize code (ether++)
741 - Added a first pass cpanfile, to try and make it easier to bootstrap
742 a development setup (ether++)
743
e2aa4a21 7445.90049_002 - 2013-08-20
745 - Fixed loading middleware from project directory
746 - Fixed some pointless warnings when middleware class lacked VERSION
747 - NEW FEATURE: Declare global 'data_handlers' for parsing HTTP POST/PUT
748 alternative content, and created default JSON handler. Yes, now Catalyst
e78db0df 749 handles JSON request content out of the box! More docs eventually but
750 for now see the DATA HANDLERS section in Catalyst.pm (or review the test

522134af 7535.90049_001 - 2013-07-26
754 - Declare PSGI compliant Middleware as part of your Catalyst Application via
755 a new configuration key, "psgi_middleware".
756 - Increased lowest allowed module version for Module::Pluggable to be 4.7 (up
757 from 3.4) to solve the fact this is no longer bundled with Perl in v5.18.
15c53843 758
01733d0f 7595.90042 - 2013-06-14
760 - Removed more places where an optional dependency shows up in the test
761 suite. Hopefully really fixed the unicode regression introduced in 5.90040
2b48bd9c 762 - reverted the change we introduced in 5.90040 where a unicode conversion
763 error warned instead of died. Now it dies again, like in the stand alone
764 plugin
765 - More work to make sure nothing happens with encoding unless you explicitly
766 ask for encoding
767 - Code to hopefully fix an issue where file uploads using the unicode plugin
768 caused trouble.
01733d0f 769
c287088e 7705.90041 - 2013-06-14
771 - Bug fix release to fix regressions introduced in previous. I would consider
772 this a likely upgrade and if you are having trouble with the previous I hope
773 this fixes all of them.
774 - Fix regression with the cored Unicode plugin that broke systems where you are
775 setting encoding type in an external configuration file
776 - Fixed circular dependency introduced when we cored the unicode plugin tests
777 - Fixed a longstanding problem with stats when locale uses , instead of . for
778 number decimals
779 - Fixed some docs that didn't properly date the previous release.
780
c8d9e6f4 7815.90040 - 2013-06-12
2e29aec2 782 ! Stricter checking of attributes in Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained:
783 1) Only allow one of either :CaptureArgs or :Args
784 2) :CaptureArgs() argument must be numeric
c5e1a737 785 3) :CaptureArgs() and :Args() arguments cannot be negative
4373973a 786 - Add Devel::InnerPackage to dependencies, fixing tests on Perl 5.17.11
701e20e5 787 as it's been removed from core. RT#84787
4e6e0ab2 788 - New support for closing over the PSGI $writer object, useful for working
789 with event loops.
eb1f4b49 790 - lets you access a psgix.io socket, if your server supports it, for manual
791 handling of the client - server communication, such as for websockets.
a526c982 792 - Fix waiting for the server to start in t/author/http-server.t
d18964f7 793 - new config flag 'abort_chain_on_error_fix' that exits immediately when a
794 action in an action chain throws and error (fixes issues where currently
795 the remaining actions are processed and the error is handled at chain
796 termination).
8275d3b9 797 - Cored the Encoding plugin. Now get unicode out of the box by just setting
798 $c->config->{encoding} = 'UTF-8'. BACKCOMPAT WARNING: If you are using
799 the Encoding plugin on CPAN, we skip it to avoid double encoding issues, so
800 you should remove it from your plugin list, HOWEVER the 'encoding' config
801 setting is now undef, rather than 'UTF-8' (this was done to avoid breaking
802 people's existing applications) so you should add the encoding setting to
ade3da0a 803 you global config. There's some other changes between the stand alone
804 plugin and the cored version, if you use it be sure to see Catalyst::Upgrading
805 for more.
d18964f7 806 - minor documentation typo fixes and updates
701e20e5 807
f653d2c8 8085.90030 - 2013-04-12
809 ! POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Regexp dispatch type from core, and put
810 it in an external package. If you need Regexp dispatch types you should
811 add "Catalyst-DispatchType-Regex" as a distribution to your build system.
e6968720 812 - make $app->uri_for and related methods return something sane, when called
813 as an application method, instead of a context method. Now if you call
814 MyApp::Web->uri_for(...) you will get a generic URI object that you need to
815 resolve manually.
18df061a 816 - documentation updates around forwarding to chained actions.
817 - Fixed bug when a PSGI engine need to use psgix logger.
818 - Added cpanfile as a way to notice we are a dev checkout.
5490e075 819 - Added 'x-tunneled-method' HTTP Header method override to match features in
18df061a 820 Catalyst::Action::REST and in other similar systems on CPAN.
4373973a 821 - smarter validation around action attributes.
5490e075 822
8235.90020 - 2013-02-22
760d121e 824 ! Catalyst::Action now defines 'match_captures' so it is no long considered
825 an optional method. This might break you code if you have made custom
826 action roles/classes where you define 'match_captures'. You must change
827 your code to use a method modifier (such as 'around').
828 - New match method "Method($HTTP_METHOD)" where $HTTP_METHOD in (GET, POST,
829 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION) and shortcuts in controllers called "GET, POST
60034b8c 830 PUT, HEAD, DELETE, OPTION"). Tests and documentation. Please note if you
831 are currently using Catalyst::ActionRole::MatchRequestMethods there may
832 be compatibility issues. You should remove that actionrole since the built
833 in behavior is compatible on its own.
578fcd08 834 - Initial debug screen now shows HTTP Method Match info
760d121e 835 - security fixes in the way we handle redirects
58f86b1a 836 - Make Catalyst::Engine and Catalyst::Base immutable
760d121e 837 - Some test and documentation improvements

dbacbce4 8395.90019 - 2012-12-04 21:31:00
4373973a 840 - Fix for Perl 5.17.6 (commit g7dc8663). RT#81601
841 - Fix for Perl 5.8. RT#61122
842 - Remove use of MooseX::Types as MooseX::Types is broken on Perl 5.8

2fe6ed83 844
02f4beca 8455.90018 - 2012-10-23 20:55:00
846 - Changed code in test suite so it no longer trips up on recent changes to
847 HTTP::Message.
848
d6ae5104 8495.90017 - 2012-10-19 22:33:00
c20ce703 850 - Change Catalyst _parse_attrs so that when sub attr handlers:
9f6f4a87 851
852 1) Can return multiple pairs of new attributes.
853 2) Get their returned attributes passed through the correct attribute handler.
854
855 e.g sub _parse_Whatever_attr { return Chained => 'foo', PathPart => 'bar' }
856
857 Will now work because both new attributes are respected, and the Chained
858 attribute is passed to _parse_Chained_attr and fixed up correctly by that.
859
860 - In Catalyst::Test, don't mangle headers of non-HTML responses. RT#79043
861
0df490ef 862 - Refactor request and response class construction to add methods
863 that roles can hook to feed extra parameters into the constructor
864 of request or response classes.
865
f0580bff 8665.90016 - 2012-08-16 15:35:00
04c0ca50 867 - prepare_parameters is no longer an attribute builder. It is now a method
868 that calls the correct underlying functionality (Bill Moseley++)
4373973a 869 - Updated Makefile.PL to handle MacOSX tar
0ee04045 870 - Fix uri_for to handle a stringifiable object
4995a5ce 871 - Fix model/view/controller methods to handle stringifiable objects
201e0a1f 872 - Fix RT#78377 - IIS7 ignores response body for 3xx requests, which
873 causes (a different) response to be broken when using keepalive.
874 Fixed by applying Middleware which removes the response body and
875 content length that Catalyst supplies with redirects.
876
cfdd890d 8775.90015 - 2012-06-30 16:57:00

f444811b 8835.90014 - 2012-06-26 10:00:00
884
258733f1 885 - Fix calling finalize_headers before writing body when using $c->write /
886 $c->res->write (fixes RT#76179).
887
aa3897db 8885.90013 - 2012-06-21 10:40:00
889
890 - Release previous TRIAL as stable.
891 - We failed to note in the previous changelog that the Makefile.PL has been
892 improved to make it easier for authors to bootstrap a developer install
893 of Catalyst.
894
8955.90013 - TRIAL 2012-06-07 20:21:00

a7d2a530 900 Bug fixes:
a53e36d1 901 - Fix warnings in some matching cases for Action methods with
902 Args(), when using Catalyst::DispatchType::Chained
903
40c06ae4 904 - Fix request body parameters to not be undef if no parameters
905 are supplied.
906
907 - Fix action_args config so that it can be specified in the
908 top level config.
a7d2a530 909
b334a4de 910 - Fix t/author/http-server.t on Win32

915
57746b80 916 Distribution META.yml changes:
917 - author key is now correct, rather than what Module::Install
918 mis-parses from the documentation.
919 - x_authority key added.
920
9a649d25 921 Bug fixes:
922 - Fix request body parameters being multiply rebuilt. Fixes both
923 RT#75607 and CatalystX::DebugFilter
924
1e089329 925 - Make plugin de-duplication work as intended originally, as whilst
926 duplicate plugins are totally unwise, the C3 error given to the user
927 is less than helpful.
928
38e43e65 929 - Remove dependence on obscure behaviour in B::Hooks::EndOfScope
930 for backward compatibility. This fixes issues with behaviour changes
931 in bleadperl. RT#76437
932
2037f03f 933 - Work around Moose bug RT#75367 which breaks
26fc3c5f 934 Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.
935
d8ccdd9d 936 Documentation:
937 - Fix documentation in Catalyst::Component to show attributes and
938 calling readers, rather than accessing elements in the $self->{} hash
939 directly.
940 - Add note in Catalyst::Component to strongly disrecommend $self->config
e01b6093 941 - Fix vague 'checkout' wording in Catalyst::Utils. RT#77000
3a526ce8 942 - Fix documentation for the 'secure' method in Catalyst:Request. RT#76710

945
f7ac80ef 946 Bug fixes:
a8946dc8 947 - Simplification of the previous changes to Catalyst::ScriptRunner
948 We now just push $FindBin::Bin/../lib to the @INC path again, but
949 only if one of the dist indicator files (Makefile.PL Build.PL or
950 dist.ini) can be found in $FindBin::Bin/../$_
951 This avoids heuristics when the app is unloaded and therefore
952 works better for extensions which have entire applications in
953 their test suites.
f7ac80ef 954 - Bug fix to again correctly detect checkouts in dist zilla using
955 applications.
df894348 956 - --background option for the server script now only closes
957 STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR. This fixes issues with Log::Dispatch
958 and other loggers which open a file handle when
f1944b31 959 - Change incorrect use of File::Spec->catdir to File::Spec->catfile
960 so that we work on platforms which care about this (VMS?)
f2b83422 961 - Make it more obvious if our PSGI server doesn't pass in a response
962 callback.

f7ac80ef 965
0c17b66d 966 Bug fixes:
967 - Fix the previous fix to Catalyst::ScriptRunner which was resulting
968 in the lib directory not being pushed onto @INC.
969 This meant perl ./script/myapp_server.pl failed, however
970 perl -Ilib ./script/myapp_server.pl would succeed.

0607947f 974 Bug fixes:
40d07fe6 975 - Fix the debug page so that it works as expected with the latest
976 refactoring.
977
0607947f 978 - The Catalyst::Utils::home function is used to find if the application
4373973a 979 is a checkout in Catalyst::ScriptRunner. This means that a non-existent
0607947f 980 lib directory that is relative to the script install location is not
981 included when not running from a checkout.
982
80267996 983 - Fix dead links to cpansearch.perl.org to point to metacpan.org.
984
8529a7ea 985 - Require the latest version of B::Hooks::EndOfScope (0.10) to avoid an
9c95f3fd 986 issue with new versions of Module::Runtime (0.012) on perl 5.10
987 which stopped Catalyst::Controller from compiling.

992
d0cfd993 993 New features and refactoring:
676bbb6f 994 - Much of the Catalyst::Engine code has been moved into Catalyst::Request
d0cfd993 995 and Catalyst::Response, to be able to better support asynchronous web
996 servers such as Twiggy, by making the application engine more reenterant.
997
998 This change is as a prequel to full asynchronous support inside Catalyst
999 for AnyEvent and IO::Async backends, which allow highly scaleable streaming
1000 (for applications such as multi-part XML HTTPRequests, and Websockets).
1001
1002 Deprecations:
e6bcfe8e 1003 - This means that the $c->engine->env method to access the PSGI environment
d0cfd993 1004 is now deprecated. The accessor for the PSGI env is now on Catalyst::Request
1005 as per applications which were using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI
1006
1007 Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is now considered fully deprecated.
1008
0aba7d92 1009 - The private _dump method in Catalyst::Log is now deprecated. The dumper is
0816209f 1010 not pluggable and which dumper to use should be a user choice. Using
1011 an imported Dump() or Dumper() function is less typing than $c->log->_dump
1012 and as this method is unused anywhere else in Catalyst, it has been scheduled
1013 for removal as a cleanup. Calling this method will now emit a stack trace
1014 on first call (but not on subsequent calls).
1015
d0cfd993 1016 Back compatibility fixes:
e6bcfe8e 1017 - Applications still using Catalyst::Engine::PSGI as they rely on
d0cfd993 1018 $c->request->env - this is now the provided (and recommended) way of
1019 accessing the raw PSGI environment.
1020
e6bcfe8e 1021 Tests:
3d2c4feb 1022 - Spurious warnings have been removed from the test suite
e6bcfe8e 1023
e1e5366d 1024 Documentation:
1025 - Fix the display of PROJECT FOUNDER and CONTRIBUTORS sections in the
1026 documentation. These were erroneously being emitted when the Pod
1027 was converted to HTML for search.cpan.org
1028
e6bcfe8e 1029 - Fix documentation for the build_psgi_app app method. Previously the
1030 documentation advised that it provided the psgi app already wrapped
1031 in default middleware. This is not the case - it is the raw app psgi
1032
00341d81 10335.90007 - 2011-11-22 20:35:00
1034
0d7bf3a9 1035 New features:
1036 - Implement a match_captures hook which, if it exists on an action,
1037 is called with the $ctx and \@captures and is expected to return
1038 true to continue the chain matching and false to stop matching.
1039 This can be used to implement action classes or roles which match
1040 conditionally (for example only matching captures which are integers).
1041
1ce9c7f6 1042 Bug fixes:
1043 - Lighttpd script name fix is only applied for lighttpd versions
9a511413 1044 < 1.4.23. This should fix non-root installs of lighttpd in versions
1045 over that.
a465926f 1046 - Prepare_action is now inside a try {} block, so that requests containing
1047 bad unicode can be appropriately trapped by
1048 Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding
1ce9c7f6 1049
4c21ba3b 10505.90006 - 2011-10-25 09:18:00
1051
27b0a436 1052 New features:
1053 - A new 'run_options' class data method has been added to Catalyst.pm
1054 This is used to store all the options passed by scripts, allowing
1055 application authors to add custom options to their scripts then
1056 get them passed through to the application.
1057
4373973a 1058 Documentation:
d685f38e 1059 - Clarify that if you manually write your own .psgi file, then optional
1060 proxy support (via the using_frontend_proxy config value) will not be
1061 enabled unless you explicitly apply the default middlewares from
1062 Catalyst, or you apply the middleware manually.
1063
f4de8c99 1064 Bug fixes:
206d09eb 1065 - Fix issue due to perl internals bugs in 5.8 and 5.10 (not present in
1066 other perl versions) require can pass the context inappropriately,
1067 meaning that some methods of loading classes can fail due to void
4373973a 1068 context being passed through to make_immutable, causing it to not return
206d09eb 1069 a value.
1070 This bug caused loading Catalyst::Script::XXX to fail and is fixed
1071 both by bumping the Class::Load dependency, and also adding an explicit
1072 '1;' to the end of the classes, avoiding the context issue.
f4de8c99 1073
c7250231 1074 - Fix using_frontend_proxy support in mod_perl by using the psgi wrapped
1075 in default middleware in mod_perl context, rather than the raw psgi.
1076
849b1b24 10775.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00
1078
ab6c6d3d 1079 New features:
1080
1081 - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
1082 If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
1083 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
1084 whereas before you had to say:
1085 $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
1086 The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
1087 easier for the application code to not have to differentiate between
1088 the two.
1089
cf49ace4 1090 - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
1091 load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
1092 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
1093 scripts in the application.
1094 - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant script
1095 (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
1096 MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server
1097 otherwise).
1098
ab6c6d3d 1099 Documentation:
1100
1101 - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
1102 to avoid confusion
4373973a 1103 - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actions
ab6c6d3d 1104 as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
1105 - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
1106 - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
1107 - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
1108 - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method modifiers
1109 and provide an alternative.

9c331634 1122
e95b2b49 1123 - Fix issue where groups of attributes to override controller actions
1124 in config would be (incorrectly) overwritten, if the parser for that
1125 attribute mangled the contents of the attribute. This was found
1126 with Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole, where Does => [ '+Foo' ]
1127 would be transformed to Does => [ 'Foo' ] and written back to config,
1128 whereas Does => '+Foo' would not be changed in config. RT#65463
1129
fabe0bc6 1130 Enhancements:
1131
1132 - Set a matching Content-type for the redirect if Catalyst sets the
1133 body. This is for compatibility with a WatchGuard Firewall.
1134
5cb939e8 1135 Backward compatibility fixes:
1136

5cb939e8 1139
14eb7697 1140 Documentation fixes:

d536010b 1145 - Clarify that prepare is called as a class method

f7580cc4 1150 Backward compatibility fixes:

1153 Catalyst::EngineLoader detect mod_perl in more generic
1154 circumstances.

1165 Realise that we accidentally chopped a digit off the versioning scheme
1166 without anyone noticing, which is a bad thing.
1167
1168 Feel like a fool. Well done t0m.
1169
1170 Cut another release.

c20710a1 1176 Changelog since the last TRIAL release:
2f3f09d4 1177
1178 Backward compatibility fixes:
a8153308 1179
2f3f09d4 1180 - Fix calling MyApp->engine_class to set the engine class manually.
a8153308 1181
2f3f09d4 1182 - Re-add a $res->headers->{status} field to Catalyst::Test responses.
1183 This _should_ be accessed with $c->res->code instead, but is here
1184 for backward compatibility.
89222c2a 1185
2f3f09d4 1186 Documentation:
72697c1d 1187
2f3f09d4 1188 - Documentation which was in the now removed Catalyst::Engine::* classes
1189 has been moved to Catalyst::Manual::Deployment
72697c1d 1190
2f3f09d4 1191 Changes:
cb1e348b 1192
2f3f09d4 1193 - nginx specific behaviour is removed as it is not needed with any
1194 web server configuration I can come up with (recommended config is
4373973a 1195 documented in Catalyst::Manual::Deployment::nginx::FastCGI)
cb1e348b 1196
cfb5d52a 11975.89003 2011-07-28 20:11:50 (TRIAL release)
0d47e040 1198
1199 Backward compatibility fixes:
1200
1201 - Application scripts which have not been upgraded to newer
1202 Catalyst::Script::XXX style scripts have been fixed
1203
1204 Bug fixes:
1205
ab4df9f8 1206 - mod_perl handler fixed to work with application classes which have manually
1207 been made immutable.
1208
0d47e040 1209 - Scripts now force the Plack engine choice manually, rather than relying
1210 on auto-detection, as the automatic mechanism gets it wrong if (for
1211 example) Coro is loaded.
1212
1213 - Server script option for --fork --keepalive are now handled by loading
1214 the Starman server, rather than silently ignored.
1215
1216 - Server script options for --background and --pid are now fixed by
1217 using MooseX::Deamonize
1218
1219 - Plack middlewares to deal with issues in Lighttpd and IIS6 are now
1220 automatically applied to applications and deployments which need them
1221 (when there is not a user written .psgi script available).
1222 This fixes compatibility with previous stable releases for applications
1223 deployed in these environments.
1224
c79bd3b0 1225 Enhancements:
1226
1227 - Catalyst::Test's remote_request method not uses Plack::Test to perform
1228 the remote request.
0d47e040 1229
1230 Documentation:
1231 - Added a Catalyst::PSGI manual page with information about writing a .psgi
1232 file for your application.
1233
4373973a 1234 - Catalyst::Upgrading has been improved, and the status of old Catalyst
0d47e040 1235 engines clarified.
1236
1237 Deprecations:
a9a0c48c 1238 - Catalyst::Test's local_request function is now deprecated. You should just
0d47e040 1239 use the normal request function against a local server instead.
1240
b40baecd 12415.80033 2011-07-24 16:09:00
1242
f899107d 1243 Bug fixes:
52d65afe 1244 - Fix Catalyst::Request so that the hostname accessor is not incorrectly
1245 populated with 'localhost' if a reverse DNS lookup fails.
1246
1247 - Fix Path actions debug screen to display number of arguments
1248
e3557c86 1249 - Fix a regression that prevented configuring attributes for all actions using
1250 ->config(actions => { '*' => \%attrs }) from working
52d65afe 1251
1252 - Append $\ in Catalyst::Response->print to more closely match
1253 IO::Handle's behaviour.
1254
1255 - Fixed situation where a detach($action) from a forward within auto
1256 was not breaking out correctly
1257
f899107d 1258 - Fix the disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config setting
1259 to also work in the $c->component method.
1260
5ff374b5 1261 - Handle users setting cookies with an undef value by not trying to
1262 output that cookie (rather than trying to do so and causing an exception
1263 as previously happened). A warning is logged if this occurs in debug
1264 mode.
2e4a8275 1265 - Update tests to ignore $ENV{CATALYST_HOME} where required
f899107d 1266
52d65afe 1267 - Change repository metadata to point at git.
1268
1269 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Request::Upload
1270
1271 - Catalyst::Test: Fixes to action_ok, action_redirect and action_notfound
1272 test functions to be better documented, and have better default test
1273 names.
1274
1275 - Update tests to ignore CATALYST_HOME env var.
1276
1f440f55 12775.89002 2011-03-02 11:30:00 (TRIAL release)
1278
1279 Bug fixes:
1280 - Fix a couple of test failures caused by optional dependencies such as FCGI
1281 not being installed.
1282
1283 Refactoring:
1284 - Simplified the API for getting a PSGI application code reference for a
1285 Catalyst application for use in, for example, .psgi files. See
1286 Catalyst::Upgrading for details.
1287
aceee8b5 12885.89001 2011-03-01 15:27:00 (TRIAL release)
1289
2cd94c07 1290 Bug fixes:
1291 - Fixed command-line argument passing in Catalyst::Script::FastCGI.
1292
1293 - Fixed Catalyst::Engine::Stomp compatibility. Applications using
1294 Catalyst::Engine::Stomp are believed to continue working without
1295 any changes with the new Catalyst major version.
93a57b4b 1296
2cd94c07 1297 - Fixed issues auto-loading engine with older scripts.
99dabb12 1298
2cd94c07 1299 Known problems:
1300 - Catalyst::Engine::Wx is officially unsupported and BROKEN. If you
1301 are using this engine then please get in touch with us and we'll
1302 be happy to help with the changes it needs to be compatible with
1303 the new major version of Catalyst.
1e5dad00 1304
2cd94c07 1305 Documentation:
1306 - The section of Catalyst::Upgrading describing how to upgrade to version 5.90
1307 of Catalyst has been much improved.
99dabb12 1308
07608083 13095.80032 2011-02-23 01:10:00
9bf423ee 1310
1311 Bug fixes:
ffb43803 1312 - Fix compatibility issue with code which was testing the value of
1313 $c->res->body multiple times. Previously this would cause the value
1314 to be built, and ergo cause the $c->res->has_body predicate to start
1315 returning true.
1316 Having a response body is indicated by $c->res->body being defined.
1317
0fd00e7b 1318 - Fix bug with calling $upload->slurp multiple times in one request
1319 not working as expected as the file handle wasn't returned to
1320 the zero position. (Adam Sjøgren)
1321
9bf423ee 1322 - Fix some weird perl 5.8 situations where $c can get squashed unexpectedly
1323 in Catalyst::execute
1324
1325 - Fix chained dispatch where chains were being compared for length (number
1326 of private parts in the chain) vs where they are being compared for
1327 PathPart length (i.e. number of non-capturing URI elements in your path).
1328
1329 This bug meant that sometimes multiple Args or CaptureArgs (e.g. /*/*)
1330 type paths would be preferred to those with fixed path elements
1331 (e.g. /account/*)
1332
1333 New features:
1334 - Add MYAPP_RESTARTER and CATALYST_RESTARTER environment variables to
1335 allow the restarter class to be chosen per application or generally.
1336
1337 This feature was added to enable GUI restarters (such as the soon to
1338 be released CatalystX::Restarter::GTK to be enabled more easily by
1339 developers without changing their application code.
1340
45cab07f 13415.80031 2011-01-31 08:13:02
1342
718e6314 1343 Bug fixes:
1344 - Update dependency on MooseX::Role::WithOverloading to ensure that
1345 a version which can deal with / depends on a new Package::Stash
1346 is installed. (As if some other dependency is pulled in during upgrading
1347 which results in new Package::Stash, then it can leave you with a broken
1348 version of MooseX::Role::WithOverloading.
1349
6ca73485 1350 - Fix undef warning in Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI when writing an empty
1351 body (e.g. doing a redirect)
1352
7258c943 13535.89000 2011-01-24 09:28:45 (TRIAL release)
1354
1355 This is a development release from psgi branch of Catalyst-Runtime.
1356
1357 Removed features:
1358
1359 - All of the Catalyst::Engine::* namespace is now gone. Instead we only have
1360 one Catalyst::Engine class speaking the PSGI protocol natively. Everything
1361 the various Catalyst::Engine:: classes did before is now supposed to happen
1362 through PSGI handlers such as Plack::Handler::FCGI,
1363 Plack::Handler::HTTP::Server::PSGI, Plack::Handler::Apache2, and so
1364 on. However, deployment can still work the same as it did before. The
1365 catalyst scripts still exist and continue to work.
1366
1367 If you find anything that either doesn't work anymore as it did before or
1368 anything that could be done before with the various Catalyst::Engine::
1369 classes, but can't be done anymore with the single PSGI Catalyst::Engine
1370 class, please tell us *now*.
1371
94edbd2c 13725.80030 2011-01-04 13:13:02
1373
8865ee12 1374 New features:
1375 - Add a --proc_title option to the FCGI script to set the process
1376 title.
2af2a5bf 1377 - Allow the response body to be set to `undef' explicitly to indicate the
1378 absence of a body. It can be used to indicate that no body should be sent at
1379 all and processing of views should be skipped. This is especially useful for
1380 things like X-Sendfile, which now no longer require providing fake response
1381 bodies to suppress view processing. In order for this to work, you will also
1382 have upgrade Catalyst::Action::RenderView to at least version 0.15.
8865ee12 1383
c046f519 1384 Bug fixes:
1385 - Deal correctly with GLOB file handles in the response body (setting
1386 the Content-Length header appropriately)
d4f76f02 1387 - Chained dispatch has been fixed to always prefer paths
1388 with the minimum number of captures (rather than the
1389 maximum number of actions). This means that (for example)
1390 a URI path /foo/* made out of 2 actions will take preference
1391 to a URI path /*/* made out of 3 actions. Please check your applications
2af2a5bf 1392 if you are using chained action and please write new test to report
d4f76f02 1393 failing case.
efc2aac0 1394 - Stop relying on bugs in the pure-perl version of Package::Stash. New
1395 versions of Package::Stash load Package::Stash::XS if
1396 available. Package::Stash::XS fixes some of the bugs of the pure-perl
1397 version, exposing our faulty assumption and breaking things. We now work
1398 with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, both with and without
1399 Package::Stash::XS being installed. Older versions of Catalyst-Runtime also
1400 work with both old and new versions of Package::Stash, but only if
1401 Package::Stash::XS is *not* installed.
c046f519 1402
fa325a7d 1403 Documentation:
1404 - Clarify that when forwarding or detaching, the end action associated
1405 with the original dispatched action will be run afterwards (fallen)
1406
47990d3f 14075.80029 2010-10-03 16:39:00
1408
1409 New features:
4d723d12 1410 - Add a warning when $c->view is called and cannot locate a default_view
1411 or current_view. This clarifies the logging when ::RenderView gets
1412 confused.
1413
47990d3f 1414 Warning fixes:
1415 - Deal warning in with Moose >= 1.15 if you add a method called 'meta' to a
f4410281 1416 class which already has one by using _add_meta_method.
1417
b2910653 14185.80028 2010-09-28 20:49:00
1419
808db1d6 1420 Bug fixes:
1421 - use Class::MOP in Catalyst::Utils.
1422
7f891e1e 1423 - Do not keep a reference to a closed over context in ctx_request, allowing
1424 the caller to dispose of the request context at their leisure.
1425
b2910653 1426 - Changes to be compatible with bleadperl
1427
d1672c76 14285.80027 2010-09-01 22:14:00
6a75eb0e 1429
1430 Bug fixes:
1431 - Fix an issue with newly added test cases which depended on Catalyst::Action::RenderView
1432
03235666 14335.80026 2010-09-01 15:14:00
1434
2afd1ea3 1435 Bug fixes:
ab83907b 1436 - Fix so that CATALYST_EXCEPTION_CLASS in MyApp is always respected by
1437 not loading Catalyst::Exception in Utils.pm BEGIN, because some Scripts::*
1438 load Utils before MyApp.pm
1439
1440 - Fix warnings with new Moose versions about "excludes" during role
1441 application
1442
1443 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases.
1444
2afd1ea3 1445 - parse_on_demand fixed when used in conjunction with debug mode.
1446 A regression was introduced in 5.80022 which would cause the body
1447 to always be parsed for logging at the end of the request when in
1448 debug mode. This has been fixed so that if the body has not been parsed
1449 by the time the request is logged, then the body is omitted.
ab83907b 1450
1f94dc3a 1451 - Fix show_internal_actions config setting producing warnings in debug
1452 mode (RT#59738)
2afd1ea3 1453
9c64b93a 1454 - Make Catalyst::Test::local_request() set the response base from base href
1455 in the returned document so that links can be resolved correctly by
1456 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst
1457
ab83907b 1458 Refactoring:
1459 - moved component name sort that happens in setup_components to
1460 locate_components to allow methods to wrap around locate_components
1461
1462 Documentation:
1463 - Fix some typos
1464
1465 - Advertise Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI
1466
1467
cba60982 14685.80025 2010-07-29 01:50:00
1469
13c565fe 1470 New features:
1471 - An 'action_class' method has been added to Catalyst::Controller to
1472 allow controller base classes, roles or traits
1473 (e.g. Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole) to more easily override
1474 the default action creation.
1475
f5325631 1476 Bug fixes:
1477 - Fix the --mech and --mechanize options to the myapp_create.pl script
1478 to operate correctly by fixing the options passed down into the script.
d0f30dbc 1479 - Fix controllers with no method attributes (where the action definitions
1480 are entirely contained in config). RT#58057
5410ef06 1481 - Fix running as a CGI under IIS at non-root locations.
2d03a299 1482 - Fix warning about "excludes" during role application
1483 - Fix warning from MooseX::Getopt regarding duplicate "help" aliases
f5325631 1484
1485 Documentation:
1486 - Fix missing - in the docs when describing the --mechanize option at one
1487 point.
f8a54681 1488 - Explained the common practice how to access the component's config
1489 values.
f73be6d2 1490 - Fixed typo in Catalyst/Script/Server.pm (RT #58474)
f5325631 1491
7aba3b2d 14925.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44
1493
1494 Bug fixes:
1495 - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
1496 Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
1497 resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes backward
1498 compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that release
1499 with mod_rewrite and SSI.
1500
1501 New features:
1502 - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
1503 use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution behaviour.
1504
1505 Documentation:
1506 - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
1507 - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
1508 and the implications of setting this to true/false in
1509 Catalyst::Engine::CGI
1510
e3a7414d 15115.80023 2010-05-07 23:50:27
1512
46b58c90 1513 Bug fixes:
671123ba 1514 - Ensure to always cleanup temporary uploaded files in all cases, even
1515 when exceptions occur during request processing, using HTTP::Body's
1516 ->cleanup feature. (RT#41442)
c6d27fac 1517 - Ensure that Catalyst::Engine::HTTP's options hash is defined before
1518 dereferencing it. (RT#49267)
4dfe7bde 1519 - Fix regex special characters in REDIRECT_URL variable breaking
1520 the request base. (2nd part of RT#24951)
b1cb1951 1521 - Fix not stripping backslashes in DispatchType::Regex::uri_for_action
46b58c90 1522
0319ec68 1523 New features:
1524 - Setting __PACKAGE__->config(enable_catalyst_header => 1); in your MyApp.pm
1525 now enables the X-Catalyst header being printed when not in debug mode.
1526 - Require CGI::Simple::Cookie version 1.109 to ensure support for the
1527 HttpOnly flag
83065d4d 1528 - Allow the myapp_test.pl script to be given a list of paths which it
1529 will retrieve all of. (RT#53653)
62b6b631 1530 - Allow parameterized roles to be applied as plugins.
1f52c1d2 1531 - Allow requiring minimum versions of plugins when loading them.
0319ec68 1532
8fa9321c 1533 Documentation:
1534 - The Catalyst::Test::get method is documented as returning the raw
1535 response bytes without any character decoding (RT#53678)
1536
1f52c1d2 1537 Cleanups:
1538 - Removal of $Catalyst::PRETTY_VERSION. Future releases will always have the
1539 full and unmangled version number, including trailing zeroes, in
1540 $Catalyst::VERSION.
1541
14a1ceef 15425.80022 2010-03-28 19:43:01
1543
025d09f9 1544 New features:
1545 - Log an extra line in debug mode with the response status code,
1546 the content type and content length if available.
1547
13311c16 1548 Refactoring / optimizations:
025d09f9 1549 - Display of the end of hit debug messages has been factored out into
75b65816 1550 log_headers, log_request, log_request_headers, log_response,
1551 log_response_status_line and log_response_headers methods so that
1552 plugins which customise how much information is shown on the debug
1553 screen as easy to write.
3a4abdb3 1554 - Make all logging of request and response state get the information from
025d09f9 1555 $c->dump_these so that there is a unified point from which to hook
1556 in parameter filtering (for example).
13311c16 1557 - $c->model/view/controller have become a lot faster for non-regexp names
1558 by using direct hash lookup instead of looping.
13e46699 1559 - IP address => hostname mapping for the server is only done once and cached
1560 by Catalyst::Engine::HTTP to somewhat mitigate the problem of people
1561 developing on machines pointed at slow DNS servers.
025d09f9 1562
13e46699 1563 Bugs fixed:
76cd735d 1564 - DispatchType::Index's uri_for_action only returns for actions registered
1565 with it (prevents 'index :Path' or similar resolving to the wrong URI)
a160c98d 1566 - Make sure to construct Upload objects properly, even if there are
1567 multiple Content-Type headers (Closes RT#55976).
76cd735d 1568
d5c5d96f 15695.80021 2010-03-03 23:02:01
1570
52e23ad4 1571 Bug fixed:
ad11d2d3 1572 - $c->uri_for will now escape unsafe characters in captures
4373973a 1573 ($c->request->captures) and correctly encode utf8 characters.
52e23ad4 1574
1bebcac6 15755.80020 2010-02-04 06:51:18
1576
1577 New features:
1578 - Allow components to specify additional components to be set up by
1579 overriding the expand_modules method. (Oliver Charles)
1580
f0bb41af 15815.80019 2010-01-29 01:04:09
1582
2689f8a4 1583 Bug fixed:
1584 - Calls to $c->uri_for with private paths as strings (e.g.
1585 $c->uri_for('controller/action', 'arg1', 'arg2') ) no longer have
1586 / encoded to %2F. This is due to $c->uri_for('static', 'css/foo', $bar)
1587 which should not be encoded.
1588 Calls with an action object (rather than a string), or uri_for action
1589 will still encode / in args and captures to %2F
1590
1591 - The above noted / => %2F encoding in uri_for_action or uri_for with
1592 an action object has been fixed to not just encode the first slash in
1593 any set of args/captures.
1594
f54950f5 1595 - nginx and lighttpd FCGI requests with URI encoded sections as the first
1596 path part have been fixed to operate correctly.
1597
0ff92c67 1598 - A source of bogus warnings in Catalyst::Component::BUILDARGS has been

ca78941c 1611 Bug fixed:
1612 - Call ->canonical on URI derived from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} to get
1613 paths correctly decoded. This bug was previously hidden by a bug

1d3a0700 1627 Documentation:
1628 - Fix docs for ->forward method when passed a class name - this should
1629 be a component name (e.g. View::HTML, not a full class name, like
1630 MyApp::View::HTML).
1631
e1d59dc4 1632 Bug fixes:
7388bcae 1633 - --daemon and -d options to Catalyst::Script::FastCGI are fixed.

1640 argv key in the options hash.
1641 - Correctly pass the arguments to Catalyst::Script::Server through to
1642 Catalyst::Engine::HTTP->run so that the server can restart itself
1643 with the correct options on SIGHUP.

3f07296e 1649 Cleanups:
1650 - Stop suppressing warnings from Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT now that most plugins
1651 have been updated to not use NEXT. If you get warnings then please upgrade
1652 your components or log a bug with the component author if an upgrade is
1653 not available. The Class::C3::Adopt::NEXT documentation contains information
1654 about how to suppress the warnings in your application if you need to.

1661 encoding test controller.
e66329da 1662
1663 Bug fixes in the new scripts (for applications which have been upgraded):
1664
82701bda 1665 - Allow --restartdirectory as an option for the Server script, for
1666 backwards compatibility. (Dave Rolsky)
402697e7 1667 - The --host option for the server script defaulted to localhost, rather
1668 than listening on all interfaces, which was the previous default. (Dave
1669 Rolsky)
ad08ab75 1670 - Restore -p option for pid file in the FastCGI server script.
7eb69527 1671 - Fix the script environment variables MYAPP_PORT and MYAPP_RELOAD RT#52604
eb3abf96 1672 - Fix aliasing applications under non-root paths with mod_rewrite in
4373973a 1673 some Apache versions where %ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} is set to the real name of
eb3abf96 1674 the script, by using $ENV{REDIRECT_URL} which contains the non-rewritten
1675 URI.
754e86c6 1676 - Fix usage display when myapp_create.pl is run with no arguments. RT#52630
b42b9094 1677
c96cdcef 1678 New features:
e66329da 1679
c96cdcef 1680 - The __MOP__ hash element is suppressed from being dumped fully
1681 (and instead stringified) when dumping the error screen to be
1682 less packed with information of no use.

0ab4f753 16885.80015 2009-12-02 15:13:54
ea72fece 1689 Bug fixes:
1690 - Fix bug in Catalyst::Engine which would cause a request parsing to end
1691 prematurely in the hypothetical case where calling $engine->read returned
1692 the single character '0'.
0ab4f753 1693 - Fix failing tests when combined with new HTTP::Request::AsCGI
ea72fece 1694
1695 Documentation:
1696 - Improved documentation on read and read_chunk methods in Catalyst::Engine.

ef546d1e 17005.80014_02 2009-12-01 00:55:23
5ab21903 1701 Bug fixes:
1702 - Fix reporting the wrong Content-Length if the response body is an
1703 upgraded string. Strings mean the same thing whether or not they are
1704 upgraded, may get upgraded even after they are encoded, and will
1705 produce the same output either way, but bytes::length returns too big
1706 values for upgraded strings containing characters >127
ab95b8e3 1707 - Fix t/live_fork.t with bleadperl (RT#52100)
8bf285ed 1708 - Set $ENV{PATH_INFO} from $ENV{REQUEST_URI} combined with
1709 $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} if possible. This is many web servers always fully
1710 decode PATH_INFO including URI reserved characters. This allows us to
41b633d8 1711 tell foo%2cbar from foo%252cbar, and fixes issues with %2F in paths
1712 being incorrectly decoded, resulting in too many path parts (rather
1713 than 1 path part containing a /, on some web servers (at least nginx).
1714 (RT#50082)
6cc3be54 1715 - Require new HTTP::Request::AsCGI so that it fully decodes $ENV{PATH_INFO}
41b633d8 1716 in non CGI contexts. (RT#50082)
5ab21903 1717
2b3bb280 1718 Refactoring / cleanups:

c4efaa54 1726
1727 Bug fixes:
1728 - Filehandle now forced to binmode in CGI and FastCGI engines. This appears
1729 to correct some UTF-8 issues, but may break people's code which relies
1730 on the old behaviour.
1731
1732 Refactoring / cleanups:
1733 - Plugins which inherit from Catalyst::Controller or Catalyst::Component
1734 are deprecated and now issue warnings.
1735
568e11a2 17365.80014 2009-11-21 02:51:14
1737
9f16fdf2 1738 Bug fixes:
1739 - Require MooseX::MethodAttributes 0.17. This in turn requires new
1740 MooseX::Types to stop warnings in Moose 0.91, and correctly supports
1741 role combination of roles containing attributed methods.
5b8ac6cc 1742 - Catalyst::Dispatcher::dispatch_types no longer throws deprecated warnings
1743 as there is no recommended alternative.
ab86b480 1744 - Improved the suggested fix warning when component resolution uses regex
4c4d45d3 1745 fallback for fully qualified component names.
12755afc 1746 - Catalyst::Test::local_request sets ->request on the response.
647a3de1 1747 - Log flush moved to the end of setup so that roles and plugins which
1748 hook setup_finalize can log things and have them appear in application
1749 startup, rather than with the first hit.
6084071b 1750 - Require a newer version of LWP to avoid failing tests.
1751 - Stop warnings when actions are forwarded to during dispatch.
1752 - Remove warnings for using Catalyst::Dispatcher->dispatch_types as this is a
1753 valid method to publicly call on the dispatcher.
4373973a 1754 - Args ($c->request->args) and CaptureArgs ($c->request->captures)
03f5f578 1755 passed to $c->uri_for with an action object ($c->action) will now
1756 correctly round-trip when args or captures contain / as it is now
1757 correctly uri encoded to %2F.
4c4d45d3 1758
d71da6fe 1759 Documentation:
1760 - Document no-args call to $c->uri_for.
ab2f881b 1761 - Document all top level application configuration parameters.
6084071b 1762 - Clarify how to fix actions in your application class (which is
1763 deprecated and causes warnings).
1764 - Pod fixes for ContextClosure.
1765 - Fix documentation for go/visit to reference captures and arguments
1766 in the correct order.
1767 - Update $c->forward and $c->state documentation to address scalar
1768 context.
08a2c908 1769 - Pod fix in Catalyst::Request (RT#51490)
7d7519a4 1770 - Pod fixes to refer to ::Controller:: rather than ::C:: as the latter
afa66c9a 1771 is deprecated (RT#51489)
d71da6fe 1772
ab86b480 1773 New features:
1774 - Added disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback config option to
4c4d45d3 1775 switch off (deprecated) regex fallback for component resolution.
fdf85295 1776 - Added an nginx-specific behavior to the FastCGI engine to allow
1777 proper PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME processing for non-root applications
b39b4848 1778 - Enable Catalyst::Utils::home() to find home within Dist::Zilla built
1779 distributions
10d77181 1780 - Added the Catalyst::Exception::Interface role defining the interface
1781 exception classes need to implement.
1782 - Added Catalyst::Exception::Basic as a basic implementation of
1783 Catalyst::Exception::Interface and made the existing exception classes
1784 use it.
9f16fdf2 1785
647a3de1 1786 Refactoring / cleanups:
1787 - Remove documentation for the case_sensitive setting
1788 - Warning is now emitted at application startup if the case_sensitive
1789 setting is turned on. This setting is not used by anyone, not
1790 believed to be useful and adds unnecessary complexity to controllers
1791 and the dispatcher. If you are using this setting and have good reasons
1792 why it should stay then you need to be shouting, now.
6084071b 1793 - Writing to $c->req->body now fails as doing this never makes sense.
647a3de1 1794
1be0c4f8 17955.80013 2009-09-17 11:07:04
1796
85fc6206 1797 Bug fixes:
1798 - Preserve immutable_options when temporarily making a class mutable in
1799 Catalyst::ClassData as this is needed by new Class::MOP.
1800 This could have potentially caused issues when using the deprecated runtime
1801 plugins feature in an application with plugins which define their own new
1802 method.
1803 - Require new Moose version and new versions of various dependencies
1804 to avoid warnings from newest Moose release.
e1e81442 1805 - Fix go / visit expecting captures and arguments in reverse order.
297ff4ce 1806
1807 Documentation:
85fc6206 1808 - Rework the $c->go documentation to make it more clear.
1809 - Additional documentation in Catalyst::Upgrading covering more deprecation
1810 warnings.
297ff4ce 1811
1812 Refactoring / cleanups:
85fc6206 1813 - Action methods in the application class are deprecated and applications
1814 using them will now generate a warning at startup.
1815 - The -short option has been removed from catalyst.pl, stopping new
1816 applications from being generated using the ::[MVC]:: naming scheme as
1be0c4f8 1817 this is deprecated and generates warnings. RT#49771

1822 - Fix t/optional_http-server.t test.
1823 - Fix t/optional_http-server-restart.t test.
d367bfc9 1824 - Fix duplicate components being loaded at setup time, each component is
1825 now loaded at most once + tests.
4f4ab5b4 1826 - Fix backward compatibility - hash key configured actions are stored in
1827 is returned to 'actions'.
1828 - Fix get_action_methods returning duplicate methods when a method is both
1829 decorated with method attributes and set as an action in config.
5d94e8f9 1830
1831 Refactoring / cleanups:
2407a0ae 1832 - Reduce minimum supported perl version from 5.8.6 to 5.8.4 as there are
46d32d14 1833 many people still running/testing this version with no known issues.
5d94e8f9 1834
1835 Tests:
1836 - Make the optional_http_server.t test an author only test which must be
1837 run by authors to stop it being broken again.
1838 - Fix recursion warnings in the test suites.

1841
9d59dde8 1842 Bug fixes:
1843 - Remove leftovers of the restarter engine. The removed code caused test
1844 failures, which weren't apparent for anyone still having an old version
1845 installed in @INC.
1846
f72168b7 18475.80010 2009-08-21 23:32:15
9d3a7a1f 1848
1849 Bug fixes:
1850 - Fix and add tests for a regression introduced by 5.80008.
1851 Catalyst::Engine is now able to send out data from filehandles larger
1852 than the default chunksize of 64k again.

e7e4c469 1856 Bug fixes:
1857 - Fix and add tests for generating inner packages inside the COMPONENT
1858 method, and those packages being correctly registered as components.
1859 This fixes Catalyst::Model::DBIC among others.
1860
455b342e 18615.80008 2009-08-21 17:47:30
1862
4ffa3785 1863 Bug fixes:
1864 - Fix replace_constructor warning to actually work if you make your
1865 application class immutable without that option.
e1dd56e6 1866 - Depend on Module::Pluggable 3.9 to prevent a bug wherein components
1867 in inner packages might not be registered. This especially affected
1868 tests.
2f6049f2 1869 - Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI - relax the check for versions of Microsoft
b0a32aba 1870 IIS. Provides compatibility with Windows 2008 R2 as well as
2f6049f2 1871 (hopefully) future versions.
803210fa 1872 - In tests which depend on the values of environment variables,
1873 localise the environment, then delete only relevant environment
1874 variables (RT#48555)
26901354 1875 - Fix issue with Engine::HTTP not sending headers properly in some cases
1876 (RT#48623)
11b4547d 1877 - Make Catalyst::Engine write at least once when finalizing the response
1878 body from a filehandle, even if the write is empty. This avoids fail
1879 when trying to send out an empty response body from a filehandle.
455b342e 1880 - Catalyst::Engine::HTTP - Accept a fully qualified absolute URI in the
57f56c51 1881 Request-URI of the Request-Line
4ffa3785 1882
371c6f1a 1883 Refactoring / cleanups:
1884 - Deleted the Restarter engine and its Watcher code. Use the
1885 new Catalyst::Restarter in a recent Catalyst::Devel instead.
b0a32aba 1886 - New unit test for Catalyst::Action 'unit_core_action.t'
24964c89 1887 - Bump minimum supported perl version from 5.8.1 to 5.8.6 as there are
46d32d14 1888 known issues with 5.8.3.
48d435ba 1889 - Debug output uses dynamic column sizing to create more readable output
1890 when using a larger $ENV{COLUMNS} setting. (groditi)
009b5b23 1891
1892 New features:
d05e45ce 1893 - Added private_path method for Catalyst::Action
1894 - Allow uri_for($controller_instance) which will produce a URI
b0a32aba 1895 for the controller namespace
d05e45ce 1896 - Break setup_components into two more parts: locate_components and
282b0c8f 1897 expand_component_module (rjbs)
365e0b98 1898 - Allow Components to return anon classed from their COMPONENT method
1899 correctly, and have action registration work on Controllers returned
8f6cebb2 1900 as such by adding a catalyst_component_name accessor for all components
365e0b98 1901 which returns the component instance's name to be used when building
1902 actions etc.
3ecba1df 1903 - Adding X-Forwarded-Port to allow the frontend proxy to dictate the
1904 frontend port (jshirley)
8ddad083 1905 - Added Catalyst::Stats->created accessor for the time at the start of
1906 the request.
371c6f1a 1907
1fe85999 1908 Documentation:
1909 - Fix POD to refer to ->config(key => $val), rather than
1910 ->config->{key} = $val, as the latter form is deprecated.
1911 - Clearer docs for the 'uri_for' method.
4373973a 1912 - Fix POD referring to CGI::Cookie. We're using CGI::Simple::Cookie.

1f851263 1917 Bug fixes:
1918 - Don't mangle query parameters passed to uri_for
545e1e3a 1919 - Tests for this (Byron Young + Amir Sadoughi)
1920 - Inherited controller methods can now be specified in
1921 config->{action(s)}
6e444c5c 1922 - Assigning an undef response body no longer produces warnings
1cad29ab 1923 - Fix C3 incompatibility bug caused if you use Moose in MyApp.pm and
1924 add Catalyst to the right hand side of this in @ISA.
fc564128 1925 - Make Catalyst.pm implement the Component::ApplicationAttribute
1926 interface so defining actions in MyApp.pm works again, if the
1927 actions have attributes that cause $self->_application to be used
1928 (like ActionClass).
1f851263 1929
a375a206 1930 New features:
1931 - Add optional second argument to uri_with which appends to existing
1932 params rather than replacing them. (foo=1 becomes foo=1&foo=2 when
1933 uri_with({ foo => 2 }, { mode => 'append' }) is called on a foo=1
545e1e3a 1934 URI.

1937
3c9b6867 1938 Bug fixes:
655dfc2a 1939 - Revert change to URL encode things passed into $c->uri_for
1940 Args and CaptureArgs as this causes breakage to pre-existing
545e1e3a 1941 applications.
655dfc2a 1942 - Remove use of Test::MockObject as it doesn't install from CPAN
545e1e3a 1943 in some environments.
655dfc2a 1944 - Remove use of dclone to deep copy configs and replace with
1945 Catalyst::Utils::merge_hashes which has the same effect, of
1946 ensuring child classes don't inherit their parent's config,
545e1e3a 1947 except works correctly with closures.
cf1fb734 1948 - Add Class::C3::reinitialize into Catalyst::Test to avoid weird
1949 bugs in ctx_request (bokutin in RT#46459)
1950 - Fix issues with _parse_PathPrefix_attr method in Catalyst::Controller
1951 (jasonk in RT#42816)
793112d6 1952 - Fix bugs with action sorting:
1953 - Path actions sorted so that the most specific wins.
1954 - Action methods named default and index fixed.
3c9b6867 1955

655dfc2a 1957 - Use ~ as prefix for plugins or action classes which are located in
1958 MyApp::Plugin / MyApp::Action (mo)
1959 - Controller methods without attributes are now considered actions if
1960 they are specified in config->{action(s)} (mo)
1961 - Add Catalyst::Component::ContextClosure as an easy way to create code
545e1e3a 1962 references, that close over the context, without creating leaks.
5d8129e9 1963
371c6f1a 1964 Refactoring / cleanups:
545e1e3a 1965 - Clean namespaces in Catalyst::Exception*.
f880d1ec 1966 - Turn Catalyst::Exception into an actual class and make the throw
1967 method create instances of it. They can still be used as normal
1968 strings, as before, as they are overloaded to stringify to their
545e1e3a 1969 error message.
1970 - Add a rethrow method to Catalyst::Exception.
f880d1ec 1971 - Add Catalyst::Exception::Detach and ::Go, and refactor detach() and
545e1e3a 1972 go() to use them instead of magic, global strings.
cf1fb734 1973 Fixes RT#47366
1974 - Clean up getting metaclass instance and making app class immutable
545e1e3a 1975 again in Catalyst::Test

545e1e3a 1990 - Tests for this
f66edc15 1991 - Fix Catalyst failing to start if any plugin changed $_ whilst
545e1e3a 1992 loading

4cb5d29f 2070 - Fix CATALYST_DEBUG and MYAPP_DEBUG environment variables
4373973a 2071 turning debugging on if defined, rather than if set.

e7924bb5 2159 - Provide a reasonable API in Catalyst::Controller for working with
2160 and registering actions, allowing a controller sub-class to replace

2375 - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(), model(), et al). We now
2376 throw warnings for two reasons:

2378 -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or current_(model|view)_instance
2379 instead
df3956bf 2380 2) you call a component resolution method with a string, and it resorts to a regexp
2f381252 2381 fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really want to search, call the
2382 method with a regex as the argument
