Jifty::Model::Metadata - Tracks Jifty-related metadata


  my $app = Jifty->new(config_file => "$ProjectRoot/etc/config.yml");
  my $application_version = Jifty::Model::Metadata->load("application_db_version");


Every Jifty application automatically inherits this table, which describes information about the Jifty database. It uses this information to smartly upgrade between application schema versions, as well as versions of Jifty itself, for instance.


Each schema is stored in the table _jifty_metadata.


The metadata table first appeared in Jifty version 0.60427
