|+New features for June 2011 upgrade include:|
|+1) Make "new" method a useful parsing constructor.|
|+2) Add "parse" method to replace "init".|
|+3) Formalize access to result parse tree created by grammar parsing. URI object has grammar attribute which in turn has a parse_result attribute, with full parse tree, giving caller access to all URI components identified in IETF RFC.|
|+4) Add query_form method providing access to hash based on "?var1=abc&var2=def" query section for CGI type applications.|
|+5) Add 'validating' attribute that, when set to true, tells the URI module to fail parsing unless the entire string it is asked to parse is a URI. Default is to provide Perl 5 URI behavior and just try to parse URI from passed parse string. "is_validating"" attribute can be set as named param to new.|
|+6) Pluggable grammar design with "grammar" attribute that identifies grammar used to parse URI, provides access to result parse tree, and (theoretically for now) allows for use of other grammars like IRI.|
