Changes for version 5.90059_005 - 2014-01-28

  • Specify newested versions of some middleware in attempt to solve test errors reported while installing.

Changes for version 5.90059_004 - 2014-01-27

  • Make sure IO handle objects do 'getline' before sending them to the response callback, to properly support the PSGI specification.
  • Added some backcompat code when setting a response body to an object that does 'read' but not 'getline'. Added deprecation notice for this case. Added docs to Catalyst::Delta.
  • Catalyst::Delta contains a list of behaviors which will be considered deprecated immediatelty. Most items have workarounds and tweaks you can make to avoid issues. These deprecations are targeted for removal/enforcement in the Catalyst 6 release. Please review and give your feedback.
  • More middleware to replace inline code (upasana++)
  • Documentation around Exceptions and how we handle them.
  • update copyright notices.

Changes for version 5.90059_003 - 2013-12-24

  • More documentation about alternative ways to setup middleware.
  • removed unneeded use of Devel::Dwarn in test case that was causing fails to install (sorry).
  • When finalizing caught errors, if the error conforms to the interface as described by Plack::Middleware::HTTPExceptions, rethrow it and let the middleware deal with it.

Changes for version 5.90059_002 - 2013-12-21

  • We now pass a scalar or filehandle directly to you Plack handler, rather than always use the streaming interface (we are still always using a delayed response callback). This means that you can make use of Plack middleware like Plack::Middleware::XSendfile and we expect better use of server features (when they exist) like correct use of chunked encoding or properly non blocking streaming when running under a supporting server like Twiggy. See Catalyst::Delta for more. This change might cause issues if you are making heaving use of streaming (although in general we expect things to work much better.
  • In the case when we remove a content body from the response because you set an information status or a no content type status, warn that we are doing so when in debug mode. You might see additional debugging information to help you find and remove unneeded response bodies.
  • Updated the code where Catalyst tries to guess a content length when you fail to provide one. This should cause less issues when trying to guess the length of a funky filehandle. This now uses Plack::Middleware::ContentLength
  • Removed custom code to remove body content when the request is HEAD and swapped it for Plack::Middleware::Head
  • Merged fix for regressions from stable..

Changes for version 5.90059_001 - 2013-12-19

  • Removed deprecated Regexp dispatch type from dependency list. If you are using Regex[p] type dispatching you need to add the standalone distribution 'Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex' to you build system NOW or you application will be broken.
