[Catalyst] Catalyst, MVCs and other MVCs

I've just joined and am looking forward to learning more about Catalyst. I run
a business called Perl Training Australia, which - imaginatively - teaches Perl,
in Australia. ;)
I'm writing a conference paper comparing a number of Perl's popular MVCs. I'm
somewhat familiar with Catalyst and have attempted (unsuccessfully) to use it in
a couple of projects. Fortunately my paper is from a beginners point of view.
If anyone has anything they'd like to share about Catalyst vs Jifty, Gantry,
CGI::App, Maypole, Mojolicious etc, I'm certainly open to insights. I don't
have enough time to learn all of these frameworks properly so I'm very dependent
- at this stage - on information from the users and creators.
My paper (and findings) will be available in December. I'm rating MVCs on:
* community participation
* ease of installation
* quality of documentation
* ease in creating a particular sample program (with CRUD)
I know that Catalyst is about dispatch more than about CRUD, but I'd love
pointers to a tutorial about how to get a basic system with working CRUD up and
working within minutes. When I first tried Catalyst (about a year ago) I worked
through the tutorial but it did not cover all aspects of CRUD (I've forgotten
what was missing) and I later found that the modules it recommended were
deprecated. So I'd really, really love advice here.
Your feedback would be very much appreciated.
All the best,
