Christian hasn't been resting tho, and he's got a Geography plugin and a HTML::Tidy view coming soon, more about that when we've got them to CPAN. There's also some work afoot to make smaller legos for auth and autz, rumors of SMTP auth and other interesting things are rampant as well.

Sri feels badly about the reviews for Module::Pluggable::Fast. Personally I don't care, but I think the comments are stupid. If you don't get it, don't use it, but don't come bitching about it. M-P-F is essential for the way Catalyst & Class::DBI::Loader initializes it's classes.
AndyG is doing a shopping cart for his wife using Catalyst, as well as a presentatation of his ServerDB example for work and promises to release once they are done. We've also had a request for a interview from the Perlcast pod cast. I hadn't heard about them before, but it's quite good stuff, and getting better, so definitively worth a look. They even mentioned us in last week's issue
On the design front, gabb is almost done htmlifying the Catalyst web design. One of the Ngmedia designers are helping as well, doing a proper vector version of the catalyst logo, and he's promised to deliver some original artwork for the web site as well. We haven't seen any of it yet, so we're quite excited.
