I'm pleased to announce the latest maintenance release of Catalyst- 
Runtime: 5.90005

This release contains a couple of new features, and a number of  
documentation improvements. Thanks to all the contributors for all the  
the patches which make up this release.

Full changelog is included below.


5.90005 - 2011-10-22 13:35:00

   New features:

    - $c->uri_for_action can now take an array of CaptureArgs and Args
      If you have an action which has both, then you can now say:
      $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures, @args]);
      whereas before you had to say:
      $c->uri_for_action('/myaction', [@captures], @args);
      The previous form is still supported, however in many cases it is
      easier for the application code to not have to differentiate  
      the two.

    - Catalyst::ScriptRunner has been enhanced so that it will now
      load and apply traits, making it easier to customise.
      - MyApp::TraitFor::Script (if it exists) will be applied to all
        scripts in the application.
      - MyApp::TraitFor::Script::XXXX will be applied to the relevant  
        (for example MyApp::TraitFor::Script::Server will be applied to
        MyApp::Script::Server if it exists, or Catalyst::Script::Server


    - Document how to get the vhost of the request in $c->req->hostname
      to avoid confusion
    - Remove documentation showing Global / Regex / Private actionsi
      as whilst these still exist (and work), they are not recommended.
    - Remove references to the -Engine flag.
    - Remove references to the deprecated Catalyst->plugin method
    - Spelling fixed (and tested) throughout the documentation
    - Note that wrapping the setup method will not work with method  
      and provide an alternative.
