Dancer2 0.204001 restores 5.8 support, fixes Test::Perl::Critic dependencies

Dancer2 0.204001 is on its way to a CPAN mirror near you. There are several important updates in this release that are worth noting:

  • Support for Perl 5.8 support has been restored. We used a named capture in a regex in resolving an issue in Dancer2 0.204000 and in the process, made Dancer2 unusable on Perl 5.8. This has been fixed. Thanks veryrusty!

  • Dancer2 0.204000 unintentionally required that Test::Perl::Critic be installed, and that we pass Perl::Critic tests to install properly. This has been reverted. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The full changelog is here:
