There have been some fairly major changes to the way that the  
authentication backwards compatibility is structured recently. This  
will affect you if your application is still using a  
Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::XXX or a  
Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Credential::XXX plugin.

I'm reasonably sure that it's all working as expected, but I want to  
get as much testing as possible before pushing up a release which  
will install by default for people to reduce the possibility of it  
causing issues for anybody.

To that end, I've pushed a dev release up to CPAN:


I'm going to perform some smoke testing of the store and credential  
plugins, but we also need some real testing on people's real  

Therefore, please please please download and test this dev release  
with _your_ applications, and let us know if it works as expected in  
your environment, especially if you're still using an old-style  
authentication store or credential.

Thanks in advance

P.S. Apologies if this mail produced a strange feeling of deja vous  
in you - yes I am doing almost the same thing for both auth and  
sessions currently!
