For those of you who doesn't know, I'm quite involved in the Catalyst project. If you don't you might not know what the Catalyst Framework is either. We've labeled it as a " Elegant MVC Web Application Framework", whatever that means. To explain easily, it's the glue that binds web development technologies like templates, database models and web servers together.
Catalyst borrows heavily from systems like Ruby On Rails and Maypole. In fact, Sebastian was responsible for bringing you version 2.0 of the Maypole framework, before he decided to move on to create Catalyst.
We do in fact have quite a bit of documentation, so if this whet your appetite, I suggest that you go check out our manual.
I co-maintain the core distribution, together with Catalyst's author and über-hacker, Sebastian Riedel. Currently, Catalyst development is moving rapidly towards a 5.0 release, and people have a hard time keeping up with changes and news, since a lot of the discussions happen real-time on IRC.
Sebastian is better at writing code than prose, so I've volunteered to maintain summaries of day-to-day updates and changes to the Catalyst framework in this Journal.
