I'm proud to announce that the Catalyst team has released the first feature
release of Catalyst since 5.70000 was released in July 2006.
Highlights in this release are relative chained actions, PathPrefix support,
 $c->go/$c->visit, refactored Component Resolution, as well as a bunch of
bug fixes and improved documentation.

Attached below is the entire change-log.

By the power of Grayskull!

          - Test for this and preexisting Lighty hack (Simon Bertrang)
        - Change streaming test to serve itself rather than 01use.t, making

        - Fix regressions for regexp fallback in model(), view() and
        - Added the supplied argument to the regexp fallback warning for
        - Ensure ACCEPT_CONTEXT is called for results from component()

5.7099_02 2008-07-16 19:10:00
        - Added PathPrefix attribute
        - Removed Catalyst::Build; we've long since moved to Module::Install

          objects (Rafael Kitover)

5.7099_01 2008-06-25 22:36:00
        - 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
        - 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)
        - Added $c->go, to do an internal redispatch to another action,
while retaining the
          contents of the stash
