Catalyst article on, and a new release.

So, jester and sri's article "30 lines of catalyst" is finally available on

To complement it, we released Catalyst 5.23, which contains a few but crucial improvements. 1, the http daemon now properly handles HTTP/1.1 and 2, you can now have non-Catalyst modules living in your application namespace without Catalyst messing it up.

Catalyst 5.20 released.

[ #24773 ]

Hi people.

Catalyst 5.2 is out. 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.

Check out the release announcement here:
