Dancer2 0.300004 Released

The Dancer Core Team would like to announce the availability of Dancer2 0.300004. This release brings several important fixes and enhancements:

  • Session cookies can be restricted to a first-party or same-site context

  • There were a number of spots where Dancer2 would return a 500 error upon receiving an invalid request, rather than (correctly) returning 400 - Bad Request. Many, if not all, of these have been fixed.

For more information about same-site context, please refer to RFC-6265bis.

To use this, add the cookie_same_site key to your session engine configuration in the appropriate YAML file. Valid settings include Strict, Lax, and None.

The complete changelog is as follows: 0.300004 2020-05-26 20:52:34-04:00 America/New_York
