Hi folks.

We're getting close to getting a new release of Catalyst out the door,  
and since this version contains new features as well as bugfixes, It  
will be 5.7100. I've just uploaded a developer release to cpan, which  
will be released as the final version in one week, unless you find  
something we need to fix, or someone hands us a completed patch for  
the action_uri method ;)

Here's the changelog:

         - Refactored component resolution (component(), models(),  
model(), et al). We now
           throw warnings for two reasons:
           1) model() or view() was called with no arguments, and two  
results are returned
              -- set default_(model|view), current_(model|view) or  
           2) you call a component resolution method with a string,  
and it resorts to a regexp
              fallback wherein a result is returned -- if you really  
want to search, call the
              method with a regex as the argument
         - remove 0-length query string components so warnings aren't  
thrown (RT #36428)
         - Update HTTP::Body dep so that the uploadtmp config value  
will work (RT #22540)
         - Fix for LocalRegex when used in the Root controller
         - Get some of the optional_* tests working from dirs with  
spaces (RT #26455)
         - Fix Catalyst::Utils::home() when application .pm is in the  
current dir (RT #34437)
         - Added the ability to remove parameters in req->uri_with()  
by passing in
           an undef value (RT #34782)

The feature to note here is 'go', which works like an internal  
redispatch to another action, while retaining the stash intact. Being  
able to do this means that in practice you don't ever need to set the  
template name in stash, but can depend on using go when you want to  
render the template of the other action, rather than the one you  
dispatched to.

Have fun, take care, remember to brush your teeth!
