Perl 5 Porters Mailing List Summary: November 1st-6th

Hey everyone,

Following is the p5p (Perl 5 Porters) mailing list summary for the past week.


Dancer2 0.200000 is finally out!

The long awaited new version of Dancer2 is finally on its way to CPAN mirror near you!

Why did it take so long, what's changed, and why the big bump in version?

New Dancer2 releases: 0.162000 ... 0.166000!

Hi everyone,

I haven't written about our last releases because I was a bit stressed for time. Allow me to apologize for that.

We have just released a new version of Dancer2 and I think it's time to share the work we've done recently and where we're going with the next releases.

Help us sponsor the Dancer book!

We started a kickstarter to write and print a Dancer book. We have less than 10 days to sponsor it and we need your help!

We want to thank Evozon,, and Weborama who have provided a generous donation to make this happen.

If you would like to see this book published you can help fund it. And if you work for a company that uses Perl and could use a few copies of the book, please consider suggesting they help sponsor the book as well.

What will you get? You will get an official Dancer book written by the core team. You will get the latest features covered - Dancer2! You will get examples that cover practical usage - websites and web APIs. You will get our appreciation and thanks. And above all, you will get to know you helped sponsor a new Modern Perl book, by people who write modern software out of community interest and wrote the book for the benefit of the community and the language.

(You might also get a drink from one of us at a conference!)

Alexis Sukrieh (creator of Dancer) will also be one of the author (oh yes, he's back!). You can read his post on the kickstarter here. A new core team developer, Jason Crome, also wrote of the book here.

What is there to wait for? Go on, spread the word! Help us make it happen! Here is the Kickstarter link again, just for you. :)

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.

Dancer Master Class at YAPC::NA 2015

If you're interested in web development and/or the Dancer web framework, we're running a very special Dancer Master Class at this year's YAPC::NA.

Dancer2 0.159000 waiting for you on CPAN!

Hi everyone,

It's been a little while since we had a release. We took longer this time because this release provides a few major improvements we wanted to mature.

With 13 contributors and 23 tickets closed, I'd like to present Dancer2 0.159000.

New Dancer2 release already waiting on CPAN: 0.157000

Hey everyone!

A new version of Dancer2 has been shipped yesterday and is already waiting for you at a mirror nearby!

It has come to our attention that some people don’t follow public announcements made on mailing lists so I will also be releasing a public announcement on this blog when I release a new Dancer2 version (except patch versions).
