Hmm, interesting.

Catalyst::Runtime 5.800013 requires
MooseX::Methodattributes 0.16 which in turn requires
MooseX::Types 0.19, which was the version that the warnings were fixed  
in I believe..

So this shouldn't be a problem. (And I did test upgrading a machine  
from old to new stuff, and didn't get warnings - before we released).

Do you know what version of MX::Types you upgraded _from_?

Can you try manually installing MooseX::Types 0.19, and then running  
the Catalyst test suite to confirm if this version _does_ need  
incrementing in some cases (i.e. on your machine, as I can't replicate  
this), or if for some reason you didn't get the new version previously?

Thanks in advance.
