    - Support for on-the-fly charset encoding when the setting is set and a
      content is sent by Dancer and needs to be encoded. The response
      Content-Type is updated accordingly as well.

  [ Alexis Sukrieh ]
    - New logger for sending log message to STDERR: Dancer::Logger::Console
      Thanks to Gabor Szabo for the idea.
    - Logger engines don't have anymore to implement _format(), they can
      use $self->format_message instead.
    - New log level: "core" for letting Dancer's core express itself on
      crucial events. That way, when the app config sets log to "core", any
      core messages is sent to the logger, and the end-user can see which
      route is chosen for each request received. Thanks to Gabor Szabo for
      the idea.
    - New class Dancer::Timer added so any logger engine can now show a
      timer string.
    - Scaffolded applications are now built like a CPAN distribution, with
      a Makefile.PL and test scripts (thanks to Gabor Szabo for the idea).
    - Added Dancer::Test to provide helpers for writing test script for
      Dancer applications
    - FIX bug when returning a void context after redirecting a route.
      Thanks to Juan J. Martínez  for the report.
