77d892df 1# Known Bugs:
cdb34619 2
3 - Bug ->go or ->visit causes actions which have Args or CaptureArgs called
4 twice when called via ->go or ->visit.
6 Test app:
77d892df 8# Compatibility warnings to add:
10 - $self->config should warn as config should only ever be called as a
5d94e8f9 11 class method (TESTS).

13# Proposed functionality / feature additions:
15## Log setup needs to be less lame
17So Catalyst::Plugin::Log::* can die
18in a fire. Having $c->log_class would be a good start. kane volunteered
19to do some of this.
21Simple example: Catalyst::Plugin::Log::Colorful should just be a
22subclass of Catalyst::Log, no ::Plugin:: needed.
24See also: Catalyst::Plugin::Log::Dispatch and
5f99445c 27## Capture arguments that the plack engine component was run with somewhere,
28 to more easily support custom args from scripts (e.g. Gitalist's
29 --git_dir)
31## throw away the restarter and allow using the restarters Plack provides
33## remove per-request state from the engine instance
35## be smarter about how we use PSGI - not every response needs to be delayed
36 and streaming
38# The horrible hack for plugin setup - replacing it:
40 * Have a look at the Devel::REPL BEFORE_PLUGIN stuff
41 I wonder if what we need is that combined with plugins-as-roles
8e03d1ba 43 * Catalyst::Engine::HTTP::Prefork no longer works since it requires
44 Catalyst::Engine::CGI which no longer is in the cataplack distribution.
45 Investigation shows moving CE:CGI to CE:HTTP:Prefork allows tests to pass.

5f99445c 49## To do at release time
8d3aaa60 50
51 - Release psgi branch of Catalyst-Devel
52 - Release new Task::Catalyst
394cd4be 53 - Release 5.9 branch of Catalyst-Manual
7ebac5f8 54 - Release Catalyst::Engine::HTTP::Prefork with deprecation notice
55 (and maybe compat?)
8d3aaa60 56
5f99445c 57## Blockers
102e063c 58
7ebac5f8 59 * Better docs for stopping using Engine::HTTP::Prefork and
60 starting using Starman, maybe?
29aba7b9 61
cac0c99e 62 * Test nginx middleware to determine if it is needed with:
64 root app - with use_request_uri_for_path
65 root app - without use_request_uri_for_path
66 non-root app - with use_request_uri_for_path
67 non-root app - without use_request_uri_for_path
69 If it isn't needed, remove. If it is needed, split it out into it's own
70 file and document why it's needed.
1d5e4ba3 72 * I've noticed a small difference with Catalyst::Test. The latest stable
73 version include two headers, 'host' and 'https'. They are missing from
8d3aaa60 74 this version - Pedro Melo on list
75 ^^ Cannot replicate this? Mailed back to ask for tests..

79 NOTE - these are notes that t0m thought up after doing back compat for
5d94e8f9 80 catalyst_component_class, may be inaccurate, wrong or missing things
77d892df 81 bug mst (at least) to correct before trying more than the first 2
82 steps. Please knock yourself out on the first two however :)
84 - Eliminate actions in MyApp from the main test suite
85 - Uncomment warning in C::C::register_action_methods, add tests it works
86 by mocking out the logging..
87 - Remove MyApp @ISA controller (ask metaclass if it has attributes, and if
88 so you need back compat :/)
89 - Make Catalyst::Context, move the per request stuff in there, handles from
90 main app class to delegate
91 - Make an instance of the app class which is a global variable
92 - Make new instance of the context class, not the app class per-request
93 - Remove the components as class data, move to instance data on the app
94 class (you probably have to do this for _all_ the class data, good luck!)
95 - Make it possible for users to spin up different instances of the app class
96 (with different config etc each)
97 - Profit! (Things like changing the complete app config per vhost, i.e.
98 writing a config loader / app class role which dispatches per vhost to
99 differently configured apps is piss easy)
