Dancer2 0.208000 released

On behalf of the Dancer Core Team, I would like to announce the release of Dancer2 0.20800 (the TPCiP release). This version introduces a new keyword, prepare_app, and features a small handful of bug and documentation fixes.

We have found a growing number of instances where not having the ability to execute code on application load is a real annoyance. The prepareapp keyword will allow you to run a block of code when your app is loaded, and is inspired from Plack's prepareapp method. Thanks, Sawyer, for making this happen.

The full changelog is as follows:

0.208000  2019-06-19 10:21:16-04:00 America/New_York

* PR #1493: Fix body not being sent on forward (Johannes Piehler)
* PR #1498: Load missing Encode in logger role (simbabque)
* PR #1501: Set :raw when copying files to new project (xenu)
* GH #1502: Update jquery (racke)

* GH #1320: Implement prepare_app keyword (Sawyer X)

* Tidy up Cookbook POD. (Mohammad S Anwar)

Thank you to manwar, xenu, simbabque,and Johannes Piehler for your contributions to this release.

A quick update on the documentation rewrite mentioned at the end of the Advent Calendar: we are pushing to get the new documentation out ASAP, and have recruited some great volunteers to help us make it happen. Our expectation at this time is to have the next Dancer2 release feature the rewritten documentation. Stay tuned for further updates.

This release is brought to you in part by some Conference Driven Development at The Perl Conference in Pittsburgh.

Please contact us on the mailing list or at if you have any questions or problems.

Let's Dance!
