Dancer2 0.201000 Released

Dancer 2 0.201000 is on its way to a CPAN mirror near you.

The Dancer Core Developers are sad to announce the retirement of David Golden (xdg) from the core team. Dancer2 was made much better by his many contributions, and we are extremely grateful for all he has done.

We’d also like to announce the addition of Peter Mottram (SysPete) to the core team. SysPete has been working quietly behind the scenes on a number of projects, but has been a valuable member of the core team for some time now, and we are happy to have him aboard.

The core developers would most importantly like to give thanks to our awesome community for the numerous contributions towards this release. You rock!

We realize the long delay between releases in leading up to 0.200000, and it is our sincere hope to not go so long between releases in the future. The upgrade to Plugin2 was extremely long and complicated, but the core team is hopeful to get to a more regular release cycle going forward.

If you have any questions, please find us on #dancer on
