Good afternoon.

It gives me great pleasure to announce the release of the latest  
maintenance version of Catalyst-Runtime, 5.80024.

This release adds some documentation and fixes what (for some people)  
was a major backwards compatibility breakage first seen in 5.80014_02.  
The more correct URI path handling which was introduced there is  
retained, but must now be activated with a configuration directive.

A full changelog is included below.


5.80024 2010-05-15 11:55:44

   Bug fixes:
    - Revert the path resolution behaviour to how it used to work before
      Catalyst 5.80014_02, so that application paths are (by default)
      resolved from $ENV{PATH_INFO} and $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}. This fixes  
      compatibility breakage seen by a number of people since that  
      with mod_rewrite and SSI.

   New features:
    - Add a use_request_uri_for_path config setting to optionally
      use the (more correct) $ENV{REQUEST_URI} path resolution  

    - Clarify the documentation for the Catalyst::Stats interface.
    - Copious documentation about the use_request_uri_for_path feature
      and the implications of setting this to true/false in
