    • Alexis Sukrieh
      • Transparent unicode support Dancer now takes care transparently of decoding unicode strings used within route handlers and encoding them back before sending a response content. Once the 'charset' setting is set, the user has nothing more to do to have a working unicode-aware application.
      • FIX for issue #172 More documentation added to Dancer::Request, all public method are documented. A pod coverage test has been added for this module.
      • Documentation update The deployment documentation is more precise about cgi/fast-cgi deployment under Apache.

      • use Pod::Usage
    • Damien Krotkine
      • replace all die and warn with croak and carp
    • Alexis Sukrieh
      • FIX for issue GH #151 utf8 pragma is imported automatically when Dancer is loaded to allow the usage of UTF-8 strings in the application code. (Thanks to kocoureasy for the report).
      • FIX for "UTF-8" issues (GH#153):
        • response content is encoded only if content_type is text
        • charset setting is normalized to UTF-8 when appropriate
        • automatically decode UTF-8 strings in params
      • FIX scaffolded dispatchers (script/dancer) The PLACK_ENV variable is not propagated by Apoache to the dispatchers (at least with our Deployment examples) so the dispatchers aren't aware of the PSGI context if we don't tell them explicitly. This patch forces the dispatchers in PSGI mode.
      • FIX (unknown bug) When a serializer is set and show_errors is true, don't expose internal errors caught.
    • Naveen
      • add --version to the dancer CLI
      • changed the URI fetched by the dancer script to check Dancer's version
  • Dancer 1.1999_01 (RC1)
    • Alexis Sukrieh
      • FIX for utf8 content in views Dancer now handles correctly templates with non-ASCII characters in views. All you have to do is to set the "charset" setting in your config. Your content response will then be encoded appropriately on-the-fly by Dancer.
      • Scaffolded app sets the charset to "utf8" by default.
      • Better design for the scaffolded app (logo, favicon and background image added)
      • Environment info available on scaffolded app

      • The layout sources jQuery first from Google CDN and falls back to the local minified version if on offline mode.
      • New default token provided to the "template" helper: dancer_version
    • Sebastian de Castelberg
      • The dancer helper is able to download files via a transparent proxy (thanks to LWP).
    • Adam J. Foxson
      • FIX for issue GH#136: "readline() on closed filehandle DATA" error that appears when running the app with Starman
    • Naveed Massjouni
      • Dancer::Test function get_response is renamed to dancer_response get_response still works but is deprecated
      • dispatch.f?cgi scripts use FindBin to resolve their location. FIX a bug when using symlinks.

      • FIX for issue GH#129 don't add multiple content-type to headers
      • fix broken tests (they were testing incorrect content type)

      • FIX for issue GH#115 documentation about compression in Dancer::Deployment
    • David Precious
      • Make the 'layout' param to the template keyword work as you'd expect and allow you to set a custom layout to use, e.g.: template 'templatename', {}, { layout => 'layoutname' };
    • Philippe Bruhat
      • Make sure a plugin refuse to register a keyword twice

    • Adam J. Foxson
      • Addresses issue #136: "readline() on closed filehandle DATA"
  • Dancer 1.1901 (1.2RC0)

        • methods {to,from}_{xml,json,yaml} accept more than one arguments. The first argument is the data to transform. All the remainings arguments are parameters to alter the behavior of the serializers. Refer to the documentation for more informations.
      • more tests added
    • Alexis Sukrieh
      • load_plugin is DEPRECATED; 'use' should be used instead to load a plugin. This is fixes the major issue with plugins about symbol exports that didn't work well (issue #101).
      • All paths built in a scaffolded application are dynamic, it's now possible to move a scaffolded application after it's been generated. (fixes issues #88,
      • The auto_reload feature is now disabled by default due to too many unsolved issues (it works most of the time, but some race conditions are still present) This feature is still being working on, but it's now flagged "experimental").
      • Default log level in development environment is now 'core' in order to provide more information.
      • New scaffolded application design. More neutral and with lots of information for a beginner, and links to useful material. Based on the Ruby on Rails start page (kudos to the Rails team,
