Changes for version 0.03000 - 2008-06-19

  • Field container_tag() now defaults to 'div' rather than 'span' to provide better layout without CSS.
  • Multi block no longer sets container_tag() to 'span' - defaults to 'div'.
  • HTML::FormFu::Model::DBIC moved out into a separate distribution.
  • Models now accessed through new form method: model(), with accompanying methods: default_model() and model_config.
  • Deprecated form methods: model_class(), defaults_from_model(), save_to_model().
  • Model methods renamed to: default_model(), default_values() and update().
  • New model method: create().
  • Deprecated element method: db().
  • Bugfixes for perl 5.10.0 (missing imports).
  • Bugfix: insert_before() and insert_after() now check if the object is already a child, and if so, removes it first. Reported by Ferruccio Zamuner.
  • Bugfix: update() many_to_many multi-value fields where 'default_column' included the table name (or 'me.') failed.
  • Bugfix: make inflators work with multiple submitted values.
  • Bugfix for Bool constraint: use '?' quantifier, not '*'.
  • Bugfix in Email constraint: ensure Email::Valid->address() is called in scalar context.
  • New Split and CompoundJoin filters.
  • New CompoundDateTime inflator.
  • New CompoundSplit and CompoundDateTime deflators.
  • New Plugin system (see tests, not yet documented) and StashValid plugin.
  • New MultiForm system for multi-page forms (see tests, not yet documented).
  • New form methods: stash_valid(), params_ignore_underscore() and tmp_upload_dir().
  • New method for _Group fields: empty_first_label().
  • Multi->render_data() now builds itself before it's children, so that deflators on the Multi work.
  • insert_before() and insert_after() now first removes the object if it's already a child of the target.
  • Callback filter and transformers now receive $params as a 2nd argument.
  • _Group field options() now supports value_xml, value_loc, label_xml and label_loc args.
  • get_* methods (fields, elements, constraints, etc) now accept any valid method-name as a search parameter.
  • add default_natural() method to Date element, allowing the use of DateTime::Format::Natural to parse dates such as "today" or "yesterday".
  • when() method for Constraints can now accept a callback
  • Transformer callbacks now get $params as second argument (as Constraints aready were getting)
  • Form method add_valid() now expects a full nested-name.
  • auto_id() now translates "%n" into the full nested-name.
  • Add a END block to DBICTestLib that cleans up the t/test.db
