Catalyst summary for 2005/04/14.

[ #24196 ]

Hey, and welcome to the first Catalyst summary. I'll try to keep this daily, if I can find the time required to read all the idle chatter on #catalyst, and pick out the gems for you guys.

Anyways, let's go through todays events.

  • Puck is going to write a Class::DBI transaction plugin for CDBI. At least he promises to do it.
  • Work starts on CForum, which is meant to be a simple showcase application for the Catalyst Framework. Also, hopefully it will be a worthy alternative to all the crappy PHP forums out there. It will not have a feature focus tho, just the basics.
  • SRI is on the drugs again, so expect good things.
  • SRI finishes the first version of HTML::Prototype and launches it as a replacement for HTML::Ajax. It's an implementation of the ajax library Rails uses, thus the name. Still, a lot of discussion on irc and on the mailing list about the name, which most people find non-descript, SRI can't be moved on this issue tho.
  • A major bug in $c->forward is fixed, and tests are added to make sure it doesn't rear it's ugly head again.
  • New Policy for comitters: Any commits without a good log message will result in 10 lashings with SRIs tounge. Also:
    Every message should be prefixed with Added/Fixed/Changed/Improved/...:
  • - A new "examples" dir is added to the repository, containing MiniMojo and the newly started CForum app.
  • Christian writes a new module soon to reach CPAN which extends search and adds SQL::Abstract in a backwards compatible fashion. It also handles deflation of objects so you can use them as search arguments if they are defined with has_as. This new plugin will also have count functionality with the same features.
  • SRI preaches SVK on IRC, and everybody agrees it is sweet.
  • Ask, if you are reading this, we still want our domain :( . Seems we can't get any of the Catalyst top domains either.
