Dancer2 0.205001 improves documentation and internals

The Dancer Core team has just released Dancer2 0.205001. This release primarily fixes some documentation issues with a couple of notable exceptions:

  • If HTTP::XSCookies is installed, Dancer2 will check at install time to see if the correct version is installed (Peter Mottram)

  • Dancer2 is now tested by Travis CI on Perl versions 5.22, 5.24, and 5.26, as well as Appveyor (Dave Jacoby)

  • All reference checking under the hood is handled by Ref::Util (Mickey Nasriachi)

We have several new contributors this release. Thanks to Dave Jacoby, Abdullah Diab, Glenn Fowler, and Jonathan Cast for your first patches to Dancer2!
