Changes for version 0.41

  • ~~ numerous documentation updates ~~
  • Changed all usage of die to Carp::croak for better error reporting (initial patch by Tod Hagan)
  • IMPORTANT NOTE **
  • the make_immutable keyword is now deprecated, don't use it in any new code and please fix your old code as well. There will be 2 releases, and then it will be removed.
  • Moose Moose::Role Moose::Meta::Class
    • refactored the way inner and super work to avoid any method/@ISA cache penalty (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Meta::Class
    • fixing &new_object to make sure trigger gets the coerced value (spotted by Charles Alderman on the mailing list)
      • added test for this
  • Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
    • immutable classes which had non-lazy attributes were calling the default generating sub twice in the constructor. (bug found by Jesse Luehrs, fixed by Dave Rolsky)
      • added tests for this (Dave Rolsky)
    • fix typo in initialize_body method (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Meta::Method::Destructor
    • fix typo in initialize_body method (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Meta::Method::Overriden Moose::Meta::Method::Augmented
    • moved the logic for these into their own classes (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Meta::Attribute
    • inherited attributes may now be extended without restriction on the type ('isa', 'does') (Sartak)
      • added tests for this (Sartak)
    • when an attribute property is malformed (such as lazy without a default), give the name of the attribute in the error message (Sartak)
    • added the &applied_traits and &has_applied_traits methods to allow introspection of traits
      • added tests for this
    • moved 'trait' and 'metaclass' argument handling to here from Moose::Meta::Class
    • clone_and_inherit_options now handles 'trait' and 'metaclass' (has '+foo' syntax) (nothingmuch)
      • added tests for this (t0m)
  • Moose::Object
    • localize $@ inside DEMOLISHALL to avoid it eating $@ (found by Ernesto)
      • added test for this (thanks to Ernesto)
  • Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
    • &find_type_constraint now DWIMs when given an type constraint object or name (nothingmuch)
    • &find_or_create_type_constraint superseded with a number of more specific functions:
      • find_or_create_{isa,does}_type_constraint
      • find_or_parse_type_constraint
  • Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Class Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Role Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Enum Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Parameterized
    • added the &equals method for comparing two type constraints (nothingmuch)
      • added tests for this (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
    • add the &parents method, which is just an alias to &parent. Useful for polymorphism with TC::{Class,Role,Union} (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Class
    • added the class attribute for introspection purposes (nothingmuch)
      • added tests for this
  • Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Enum Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Role
    • broke these out into their own classes (nothingmuch)
  • Moose::Cookbook::Recipe*
    • fixed references to test file locations in the POD and updated up some text for new Moose features (Sartak)
  • Moose::Util
    • Added &resolve_metaclass_alias, a helper function for finding an actual class for a short name (e.g. in the traits list)
