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.

Thank you to everyone involved in this release, whether working on an issue or helping raise them and debug them, especially the following people (in order of appearance in the Changelog):

cdmalon, Russell Jenkins, Alberto Simões, Sawyer X, Chenchen Zhao, Sakshee Vijayvargia, Andrew Solomon, David Zurborg, and valerycodes.
