My YAPC::EU 2015: The Art of Community


YAPC is always a special time - for all of us. YAPC::EU was my first YAPC and no matter which YAPC I attend, I always remember it as the first YAPC I had (back in Italy), where I met Ovid, Aristotle, and other people I nowadays get to call friends, for the first time. It was my first community event.

New Dancer2 release en route to CPAN: 0.162000

Yet another Dancer2 release hitting CPAN as we speak, all the way from Granada, Spain, courtesy of YAPC::EU 2015.

We've made a few interesting changes, highlights of which I would like to share with you.

Dancer2 0.160000 en route to CPAN!

Hi everyone,

I am proud to announce another release of Dancer2, carrying many changes and improvements, with 9 contributors and 21 tickets closed[1].

This release carries the following major changes:

* Workaround for multiple plugins with hooks.
* "send_file" is asynchronous by default. Fallback to synchronous.
* "prefix" now supports the entire route path spec ("/:var" now works in prefix).
* Clear up prefix inconsistencies ("/var" vs. "/var/").
* Proper package reported in logging.
