I put up a simple page where the draft documents will appear. I know the URL sucks, but I might fix it soon. At the moment I made one chapter available.

The final document will be made available in electronic format freely to the community (without that DRAFT watermark, that is …

Task::Dancer 0.29

Task::Dancer is just a collection of everything-Dancer. It was started by Sawyer X, and now I'm helping maintaining it.

Being a collection of all modules (plugins, mostly) for Dancer, it is a good way to show external progress in the framework (the internal progress was blogged a few days ago).

This new release includes:
