It's been a pretty quiet place, to put it nicely. That's why we've decided to replace them with a <a href="http://plagger.org/trac">Plagger</a> based planet aggregator. It'll be up at planet.catalystframework.org sometime soon. </p><p>As for myself, I've found I need to write on varied subjects, so the confines of random got a little narrow for me.

This release doesn't change anything radical, so don't worry. However, it's got lots and lots of small improvements that will make your day as a Catalyst developer easier. For example, support for destdir in the installer, deep recursion detection in the dispatcher, *full* support for modperl2, a new speedycgi engine, and other goodie.</p><p>Check out the release announcement here:</p><p> <a href="http://lists.rawmode.org/pipermail/catalyst/2005-May/000430.html">http://lists.rawmode.org/pipermail/catalyst/2005-May/000430.html</a></p> draven 2005-05-19T16:39:28+00:00 journal #catalyst logs http://use.perl.org/~draven/journal/24618?from=rss Sorry about the lack of updates lately, I've been quite busy working on MojoMojo, and nothing that concrete has happened lately<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:) Meanwhile you can now follow the action on #catalyst <a href="http://www.loglibrary.com/141">here</a> draven 2005-05-10T22:30:55+00:00 journal thefeed.no runs on mojomojo. http://use.perl.org/~draven/journal/24584?from=rss The first MojoMojo powered site was launched this weekend. <a href="http://thefeed.no/">thefeed.no</a> is using mojomojo as it's current CMS system.

It was included in <a href="http://perlcast.com/2005/05/01/perlcast-7/">Perlcast #7</a>. Go check it out for a good laught at my expence.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)</p><p>There's also been some CPAN activity. On saturday we pushed some needed fixes for existing modules. The <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~mramberg/Catalyst-Model-CDBI-0.08/">CDBI model</a> was updated to require the latest CDBI-Loader, to let the user see any error messages on initialization, which had been supressed before.

Finally, we released a updated <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~mramberg/Catalyst-Model-CDBI-Sweet-0.02/">Catalyst::Model::CDBI::Sweet</a>, in preparation for moving the core to a stand alone Class::DBI module.</p><p>I also found time on Sunday to package up and release Chansen's <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~mramberg/Catalyst-Plugin-Geography-0.01/">Geography plugin</a>. It's pretty sweet, lets you get country/code from the user's ip.</p><p> Omega finally found some time to put his <a href="http://svn.palle.net/svn/repos/omega/easycms/trunk/EasyCMS/">EasyCMS repo</a> online. This is another nice Catalyst example. He's got a demo online <a href="http://easycms.palle.net/">here</a>, but no public login so far. I've gotten a peek tho, and have to say I'm impressed, just need a designer's touch, and the html looks quite sane, so that should be piece of cake. Gabb, are you up for the challenge?<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)</p><p>Some more views are coming today, you can check the repo if you are curious. They are all packaged up, just need to be pushed out.</p><p>Last night, when they should be in their beds, Sri and Chansen had a long discussion about reusable application components. There's a reusable article something coming up, once we finish the discussion on how to name everything<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)</p> draven 2005-05-03T09:31:48+00:00 summaries Catalyst summary for 2005/04/28 http://use.perl.org/~draven/journal/24445?from=rss After the flood of modules yesterday, we had to take a breather to write some more, so pretty much no news on CPAN today. Actually, that's not quite true. I didn't mention yesterday's release of Christian's <b>sweet</b> Class::DBI model, <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~sri/Catalyst-Model-CDBI-Sweet-0.01/">Catalyst::Model::CDBI::Sweet</a>. This adds some pretty nice features to the standard Catalyst models, like transparent abstract search, pluggable Cache support and UUID generation.<p>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.</p><blockquote><div><p> <tt>16:23 &lt;@chansen&gt; $c-&gt;geography-&gt;country<br>16:23 &lt;@chansen&gt; $c-&gt;geography-&gt;code<br>16:23 &lt;@chansen&gt; without arguments they return the current users country or code16:24 &lt; chisel&gt; sounds cool<br>16:24 &lt;@chansen&gt; can also be called $c-&gt;geography-&gt;country('SE')<br>16:25 &lt;@chansen&gt; sri: Stop thinking about verbosity!<br>16:25 &lt;@chansen&gt; sri: there is an alias for ya, $c-&gt;geo<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;)</tt></p></div> </blockquote><p>Sri feels badly about the <a href="http://cpanratings.perl.org/d/Module-Pluggable-Fast">reviews</a> for <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~sri/Module-Pluggable-Fast-0.15/">Module::Pluggable::Fast</a>. 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 &amp; Class::DBI::Loader initializes it's classes.</p><p>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 <a href="http://www.joshmcadams.com/perlcast/">Perlcast</a> 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<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)</p><p>Ah, I did forget one important new Catalyst release yesterday. <a href="http://use.perl.org/~acme">Acme</a> released 0.42 of his <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~lbrocard/Devel-ebug-0.42/">Devel::ebug</a> module, with the sweet Ajax Catalyst frontend. Definitively worth checking out as well!</p><p>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.</p><blockquote><div><p> <tt>!- Topic for #catalyst: Catalyst - Because development is supposed to be fun.</tt></p></div> </blockquote> draven 2005-04-29T10:07:56+00:00 journal Catalyst summary for 2005/04/27.

(All the engine classes now have<nobr> <wbr></nobr>::Base abstract classes, and the actual class with try to DTRT (<nobr> <wbr></nobr>::Apache will pick the right ModPerl version for you and so on). We've also added APR support for fcgi and renamed it to FastCGI to be more consistent. </p><p>You won't have to change your application, but it's not really backwards compatible, and you will have to regenerate the scripts, so we signify that with a more significant version number.
