  • I apologize for the Moose issues, I take backwards compat very seriously and the decision to break it here was not made lightly. The change was to make the handling of the Perl 'undef' and an undefined object slot more consistent in Moose, and I think the current implementation does that correctly now. In hindsight I probably should have publicized the issue better.

    • Not a problem. I wasn't trying to slam Moose -- just my lack of thorough testing (which seems to still be lacking in a few spots based on the cpantesters results for 0.02 -- I'll be releasing 0.03 soon in hopes of fixing some of those).

      I hadn't read about the 'clear_' accessor, so I was setting an attribute to undef in an attempt to mark it as not set. That wasn't really following the rules, so I wasn't too surprised when I found out that was what broke.
