Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I pushed an updated Catalyst
Manual to CPAN yesterday.   Almost all of the changes pertained to the
tutorial.  A big thanks to Caelum for doing most of the SQLite foreign
key work.  Also thanks to xenoterracide for a variety of edits to
early chapters.  "Full" set of changes listed below (with a summary of
prior changes below that).


5.8004 17 Feb 2010
    - Tutorial:
        - Add foreign key support for SQLite
            (huge thanks to Caelum for that and other good edits!)
        - Add "Quick Start" to Intro (Chapter 1)
        - Switch to use of "-r" to auto-restart the dev svr
        - Update for latest available Debian package versions
        - Switch to individual files for example code vs. tarballs
        - Switch to 'done_testing' and shorter 'prove' args for testing chapter
