Dancer2 0.205000 is on it’s way to CPAN, and brings with it a number of bug fixes, documentation improvements, and enhancements. The changes with the most potential impact to your existing applications include:
Type::Tiny. This will improve the speed of any Dancer2 application automatically.
request->dispatch_path. This was originally introduced to fix a buggy
dispatch_pathto incorrectly fail a route match when
SCRIPT_NAMEwas also a prefix of the
request->pathnow functions as intended, and is the preferred method of dispatch.
request->dispatch_pathwill throw a warning if used, and will call
request->pathinstead. The method will be removed entirely two releases from now.
A new method is being added to Dancer2 applications,
prepare_app(). This method will eventually get called automatically when
to_app()is invoked. In preparation of this, any application that may already contain a
prepare_app()method will complain - loudly - that implementation of this method is coming. Expect to see the final implementation of
prepare_app()two releases from now.
Finally, this release saw a large number of community contributions, especially from first-time contributors. The Dancer Core Team is extremely appreciative of the efforts by its users - thanks so much for making Dancer an even better framework!
