	  releases startegy since 1.2 is out. Also better explaining about how 
	  to contribute pull-requests to the core team.
	* New documentation for integrators: Dancer::Development::Integration
	  describes precisely how integrators should handle pull-requests.

	[ Naveen ]
	* add a --no-check switch to script/dancer to disable remote check of new
	  Dancer versions.

	[ Philippe Bruhat ]
	* add script/wallflower, helper to turn a Dancer application into a static
	  web site.
	* better behaviour for plugin_setting (better search, more user-friendly)

	[ Franck Cuny ]
	* Support for configurable log format in logger engines
	* Refactoring of Dancer::Route, some optimisations and code cleanup

Dancer 1.2001
	[ Sawyer X ]
	* Fix clash with KiokuDB because of Dancer::Serializer::Dumper.

	[ Franck Cuny ]

	[ Yanick Champoux ]
	* Doc fix.

Dancer 1.1999_03 (RC3)
	[ Alexis Sukrieh ]
	* Transparent unicode support
	  Dancer now takes care transparently of decoding unicode strings
	  used within route handlers and encoding them back before sending
	  a response content. Once the 'charset' setting is set, the user
	  has nothing more to do to have a working unicode-aware application.
	* FIX for issue #172
	  More documentation added to Dancer::Request, all public method
	  are documented. A pod coverage test has been added for this
	* Documentation update The deployment documentation is more precise about
	  cgi/fast-cgi deployment under Apache.
	* FIX for issue GH#171
	  Scaffolded configuration files are fully commented in order to quickly
	  guide the user in her first steps.

	[ Dave Doyle ]
	* clarify Pod as to how before_template works

	[ Sawyer X ]
	* Overhaul tests to use lib t/lib instead of t::lib::.
	  (fixes Windows test fails)
	* PSGI envs on Windows is in capital letters.
	  (fixes Windows test fails)
	* Add tests on every required directory to create a fake environment.
	  (realpath() on Windows fails when path doesn't exist)

	* replace all die and warn with croak and carp

	[ Alexis Sukrieh ]
	* FIX for issue GH #151
	  utf8 pragma is imported automatically when Dancer is loaded
	  to allow the usage of UTF-8 strings in the application code.
	  (Thanks to kocoureasy for the report).
	* FIX for "UTF-8" issues (GH#153):
	  - response content is encoded only if content_type is text
	  - charset setting is normalized to UTF-8 when appropriate
	  - automatically decode UTF-8 strings in params
	* FIX scaffolded dispatchers (script/dancer)
	  The PLACK_ENV variable is not propagated by Apoache to the dispatchers (at
	  least with our Deployment examples) so the dispatchers aren't aware of the
	  PSGI context if we don't tell them explicitly.
	  This patch forces the dispatchers in PSGI mode.
	* FIX (unknown bug)
	  When a serializer is set and show_errors is true, don't expose internal
	  errors caught.

	[ Naveen ]
	* add --version to the dancer CLI
	* changed the URI fetched by the dancer script to check Dancer's version

Dancer 1.1999_01 (RC1)

	[ Alexis Sukrieh ]
	* FIX for utf8 content in views
	  Dancer now handles correctly templates with non-ASCII characters in views.
	  All you have to do is to set the "charset" setting in your config. Your
	  content response will then be encoded appropriately on-the-fly by Dancer.
	* Scaffolded app sets the charset to "utf8" by default.
	* Better design for the scaffolded app (logo, favicon and background image
	* Environment info available on scaffolded app
	* LWP is used by the dancer helper to download files
	* jQuery 1.4.2 (minified) is included in the scaffolded app
	* default layout uses <% request.base %> in order to support mounted apps
	  (Thanks to Naveed Massjouni and Franck Cuny for the concept/idea).
	* The layout sources jQuery first from Google CDN and falls back to
	  the local minified version if on offline mode.
	* New default token provided to the "template" helper: dancer_version

	[ Sebastian de Castelberg ]
	* The dancer helper is able to download files via a transparent proxy
	  (thanks to LWP).

	  "readline() on closed filehandle DATA" error that appears when running
	  the app with Starman

	[ Naveed Massjouni ]

	  documentation about compression in Dancer::Deployment

	[ David Precious ]
	* Make the 'layout' param to the template keyword work as you'd expect and
	  allow you to set a custom layout to use, e.g.:
	  template 'templatename', {}, { layout => 'layoutname' };

	[ Philippe Bruhat ]
	* Make sure a plugin refuse to register a keyword twice

	[ Sawyer X ]

Dancer 1.1903
	[ Sawyer X, Franck Cuny ]

	* Addresses issue #136: "readline() on closed filehandle DATA"

Dancer 1.1901 (1.2RC0)

	[ Franck Cuny ]

	    first argument is the data to transform. All the remainings arguments
	    are parameters to alter the behavior of the serializers. Refer to the
	    documentation for more informations.
	* more tests added

	[ Alexis Sukrieh ]
	* load_plugin is DEPRECATED; 'use' should be used instead to load a plugin.
	  This is fixes the major issue with plugins about symbol exports that
	  didn't work well (issue #101).
	* All paths built in a scaffolded application are dynamic, it's now
	  possible to move a scaffolded application after it's been generated.
	  (fixes issues #88,
	* The auto_reload feature is now disabled by default due to too many
	  unsolved issues (it works most of the time, but some race conditions are
	  still present) This feature is still being working on, but it's now
	  flagged "experimental").
	* Default log level in development environment is now 'core' in order to
	  provide more information.
	* New scaffolded application design. More neutral and with lots of
	  information for a beginner, and links to useful material.
	  Based on the Ruby on Rails start page (kudos to the Rails team,
