Also see Moose::Manual::Delta for more details of, and workarounds
for, noteworthy changes.
* We no longer unimport strict and warnings when Moose, Moose::Role, or
Moose::Exporter are unimported. Doing this was broken if the user
explicitly loaded strict and warnings themself, and the results could be
generally surprising. We decided that it was best to err on the side of
safety and leave these on. Reported by David Wheeler. RT #58310. (Dave
* Accessors will now not be inlined if the instance metaclass isn't
inlinable (doy).
1.08 Tue, Jun 15, 2010
* Refactored a small amount of Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor to allow it
to be overridden more easily (doy).
1.07 Sat, Jun 05, 2010
* Fixed a minor metaclass compatibility fixing bug dealing with immutable
classes and non-class metaclass traits (doy, dougdude).
1.06 Tue, Jun 01, 2010
* Added '0+' overloading in Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint so that we can
more uniformly compare type constraints between 'classic' Moose type
constraints and MooseX::Types based type constraints.
1.05 Thu, May 20, 2010
* Packages and modules no longer have methods - this functionality was
moved back up into Moose::Meta::Class and Moose::Meta::Role individually
(through the Class::MOP::Mixin::HasMethods mixin) (doy).
* BUILDALL is now called by Moose::Meta::Class::new_object, rather than by
Moose::Object::new. (doy)
* strict and warnings are now unimported when Moose, Moose::Role, or
Moose::Exporter are unimported. (doy, Adam Kennedy)
* Added a 'consumers' method to Moose::Meta::Role for finding all
classes/roles which consume the given role. (doy)
* Fix has '+attr' in Roles to explode immediately, rather than when the role
is applied to a class (t0m).
* Fix type constraint validation messages to not include the string 'failed'
twice in the same sentence (Florian Ragwitz).
* New type constraints will default to being unequal, rather than equal
* The tests no longer check for perl's behavior of clobbering $@, which has
been fixed in perl-5.13.1 (Florian Ragwitz).
* Metaclass compatibility fixing has been completely rewritten, and should
be much more robust. (doy)
1.04 Thu, May 20, 2010
* This release was broken and has been deleted from CPAN shortly after its
1.03 Thu, May 06, 2010
* Allow specifying required versions when setting superclasses or applying
roles (Florian Ragwitz).
1.02 Sat, May 01, 2010
* Stop the natatime method provided by the native Array trait from returning
an exhausted iterator when being called with a callback. (Florian Ragwitz)
* Make Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Class correctly reject RegexpRefs.
(Florian Ragwitz)
* Calling is_subtype_of on a Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Class with itself or
the class the TC represents as an argument incorrectly returned true. This
behavior is correct for is_type_of, not is_subtype_of. (Guillermo Roditi)
* Use File::Temp for temp files created during tests. Previously, files were
written to the t/ dir, which could cause problems of the user running the
tests did not have write access to that directory.. (Chris Weyl, Ævar
Arnfjörð Bjarmason)
* Pass role arguments along when applying roles to instances. (doy, lsm)
1.01 Fri, Mar 26, 2010
* The handles option now also accepts a role type constraint in addition to a
plain role name. (Florian Ragwitz)
* Record the Sartak/doy debt properly in Changes (perigrin)
1.00 Tue, Mar 25, 2010
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::Code no longer creates reader
methods by default. (Florian Ragwitz)
* Improve various parts of the documentation and fix many typos.
(Dave Rolsky, Mateu Hunter, Graham Knop, Robin V, Jay Hannah, Jesse Luehrs)
* Paid the $10 debt to doy from 0.80 Sat, Jun 6, 2009 (Sartak)
0.99 Mon, Mar 8, 2010
* New method find_type_for in Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union, for finding
which member of the union a given value validates for. (Cory Watson)
* DEMOLISH methods in mutable subclasses of immutable classes are now called
properly (Chia-liang Kao, Jesse Luehrs)
* Added Moose::Manual::Support that defines the support, compatiblity, and
release policies for Moose. (Chris Prather)
0.98 Wed, Feb 10, 2010
* An internals change in 0.97 broke role application to an instance in some
cases. The bug occurred when two different roles were applied to different
instances of the same class. (Rafael Kitover)
0.97 Tue, Feb 9, 2010
* Calling ->reinitialize on a cached anonymous class effectively uncached
the metaclass object, causing the metaclass to go out of scope
unexpectedly. This could easily happen at a distance by applying a
metarole to an anonymous class. (Dave Rolsky).
0.96 Sat, Feb 6, 2010
* ScalarRef is now a parameterized type. You can now specify a type
constraint for whatever the reference points to. (Closes RT#50857)
(Michael G. Schwern, Florian Ragwitz)
* ScalarRef now accepts references to other references. (Closes RT#50934)
(Michael G. Schwern)
0.95 Thu, Feb 4, 2010
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::Code now provides execute_method as
a delegation option. This allows the code reference to be called as a
method on the object. (Florian Ragwitz)
* Moose::Object::does no longer checks the entire inheritance tree, since
Moose::Meta::Class::does_role already does this. (doy)
* Moose::Util::add_method_modifier (and subsequently the sugar functions
Moose::before, Moose::after, and Moose::around) can now accept arrayrefs,
with the same behavior as lists. Types other than arrayref and regexp
result in an error. (Dylan Hardison)
0.94 Mon, Jan 18, 2010
* Please see the changes listed for 0.93_01 and Moose::Manual::Delta.
* Improved support for anonymous roles by changing various APIs to take
Moose::Meta::Role objects as well as role names. This included
- Moose::Meta::Class->does_role
- Moose::Meta::Role->does_role
- Moose::Util::does_role
- Moose::Util::apply_all_roles
- Moose::Util::ensure_all_roles
- Moose::Util::search_class_by_role
Requested by Shawn Moore. Addresses RT #51143 (and then some). (Dave Rolsky)
* Fix handling of non-alphanumeric attributes names like '@foo'. This should
work as long as the accessor method names are explicitly set to valid Perl
method names. Reported by Doug Treder. RT #53731. (Dave Rolsky)
0.93_03 Tue, Jan 5, 2010
* Portability fixes to our XS code so we compile with 5.8.8 and Visual
C++. Fixes RT #53391. Reported by Taro Nishino. (rafl)
0.93_02 Tue, Jan 5, 2010
* Depend on Class::MOP 0.97_01 so we can get useful results from CPAN
testers. (Dave Rolsky)
0.93_01 Mon, Jan 4, 2010
See Moose::Manual::Delta for more details on backwards compatiblity issues.
* Role attributes are now objects of the Moose::Meta::Role::Attribute
class. (Dave Rolsky).
* There were major changes to how metaroles are applied. We now distinguish
between metaroles for classes vs those for roles. See the
Moose::Util::MetaRole docs for details. (Dave Rolsky)
* The old MetaRole API has been deprecated, but will continue to
work. However, if you are applying an attribute metaclass role, this may
break because of the fact that roles now have an attribute metaclass
too. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::MetaRole::apply_metaclass_roles is now called
apply_metaroles. The old name is deprecated. Dave Rolsky>
* The unimport subs created by Moose::Exporter now clean up re-exported
functions like blessed and confess, unless the caller imported them from
somewhere else too. See Moose::Manua::Delta for backcompat details. (rafl)
* Changed the Str constraint to accept magic lvalue strings like one gets from
substr et al, again. (sorear)
* Sped up the type constraint parsing regex. (Sam Vilain)
* The Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe2 recipe was broken. Fix suggested by
* Added Moose::Util::TypeConstraints exports when using to allow
easier testing of TypeConstraints from the command line. (perigrin)
* Added a with_immutable test function to Test::Moose, to run a block of tests
with and without certain classes being immutable. (doy)
* We now use Module::Install extensions explicitly to avoid confusing errors
if they're not installed. We use Module::Install::AuthorRequires to stop
test extraction and general failures if you don't have the author side
dependencies installed.
* Fixed a grammar error in Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe4.
#51791. (Amir E. Aharoni)
0.93 Thu, Nov 19, 2009
* Moose::Object
- Calling $object->new() is no longer deprecated, and no longer
warns. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- The get_attribute_map method is now deprecated. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation
- Preserve variable aliasing in @_ for delegated methods, so that
altering @_ affects the passed value. (doy)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Allow array refs for non-anonymous form of enum and duck_type, not
just anonymous. The non-arrayref forms may be removed in the
future. (doy)
- Changed Str constraint to not accept globs (*STDIN or *FOO). (chansen)
- Properly document Int being a subtype of Str. (doy)
* Moose::Exporter
- Moose::Exporter using modules can now export their functions to the
main package. This applied to Moose and Moose::Role, among
others. (nothingmuch)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Don't remove attribute accessors we never installed, during
remove_accessors. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::Array
- Don't bypass prototype checking when calling List::Util::first, to
avoid a segfault when it is called with a non-code argument. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::Code
- Fix passing arguments to code execute helpers. (doy)
0.92 Tue, Sep 22, 2009
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- added the match_on_type operator (Stevan)
- added tests and docs for this (Stevan)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Metaclass compat fixing should already happen recursively, there's no
need to explicitly walk up the inheritance tree. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Add tests for set_raw_value and get_raw_value. (nothingmuch)
0.91 Thu, Sep 17, 2009
* Moose::Object
- Don't import any functions, in order to avoid polluting our namespace
with things that can look like methods (blessed, try, etc)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- The generated code needs to called Scalar::Util::blessed by its
fully-qualified name or else Perl can interpret the call to blessed as
an indirect method call. This broke Search::GIN, which in turn broke
KiokuDB. (nothingmuch)
0.90 Tue, Sep 15, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::Counter
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::String
- For these two traits, an attribute which did not explicitly provide
methods to handles magically ended up delegating *all* the helper
methods. This has been removed. You must be explicit in your handles
declaration for all Native Traits. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Object
- DEMOLISHALL behavior has changed. If any DEMOLISH method dies, we make
sure to rethrow its error message. However, we also localize $@ before
this so that if all the DEMOLISH methods success, the value of $@ will
be preserved. (nothingmuch and Dave Rolsky)
- We now also localize $? during object destruction. (nothingmuch and
Dave Rolsky)
- The handling of DEMOLISH methods was broken for immutablized classes,
which were not receiving the value of
- These two fixes address some of RT #48271, reported by Zefram.
- This is all now documented in Moose::Manual::Construction.
- Calling $object->new() is now deprecated. A warning will be
issued. (perigrin)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Added more hooks to customize how roles are applied. The role
summation class, used to create composite roles, can now be changed
and/or have meta-roles applied to it. (rafl)
- The get_method_list method no longer explicitly excludes the "meta"
method. This was a hack that has been replaced by better hacks. (Dave
* Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation
- fixed delegated methods to make sure that any modifiers attached to
the accessor being delegated on will be called (Stevan)
- added tests for this (Stevan)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Moose no longer warns when a class that is being made immutable has
mutable ancestors. While in theory this is a good thing to warn about,
we found so many exceptions to this that doing this properly became
quite problematic.
0.89_02 Thu, Sep 10, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native
- Fix Hash, which still had 'empty' instead of 'is_empty'. (hdp)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::Array
- Added a number of functions from List::Util and List::MoreUtils,
including reduce, shuffle, uniq, and natatime. (doy)
* Moose::Exporter
- This module will now generate an init_meta method for your exporting
class if you pass it options for
Moose::Util::MetaRole::apply_metaclass_roles or
apply_base_class_roles. This eliminates a lot of repetitive
boilerplate for typical MooseX modules. (doy).
- Documented the with_meta feature, which is a replacement for
with_caller. This feature was added by josh a while ago.
- The with_caller feature is now deprecated, but will not issue a
warning yet. (Dave Rolsky)
- If you try to wrap/export a subroutine which doesn't actually exist,
Moose::Exporter will warn you about this. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToRole
- When a role aliased a method from another role, it was only getting
the new (aliased) name, not the original name. This differed from what
happens when a class aliases a role's methods. If you _only_ want the
aliased name, make sure to also exclue the original name. (Dave
0.89_01 Wed Sep 2, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Added the currying syntax for delegation from AttributeHelpers to the
existing delegation API. (hdp)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native
- We have merged the functionality of MooseX::AttributeHelpers into the
Moose core with some API tweaks. You can continue to use
MooseX::AttributeHelpers, but it will not be maintained except
(perhaps) for critical bug fixes in the future. See
Moose::Manual::Delta for details. (hdp, jhannah, rbuels, Sartak,
perigrin, doy)
* Moose::Error::Croak
* Moose::Error::Confess
- Clarify documentation on how to use different error-throwing
modules. (Curtis Jewell)
* Moose
- Correct POD for builder to point to Recipe8, not 9. (gphat)
* Moose::Exporter
- When a nonexistent sub name is passed to as_is, with_caller, or
with_meta, throw a warning and skip the exporting, rather than
installing a broken sub. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Moose now warns if you call C<make_immutable> for a class with mutable
ancestors. (doy)
0.89 Thu Aug 13, 2009
* Moose::Manual::Attributes
- Clarify "is", include discussion of "bare". (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Role::Method::Conflicting
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToClass
- For the first set of roles involved in a conflict, report all
unresolved method conflicts, not just the first method. Fixes #47210
reported by Ovid. (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- Add assert_valid method to use a TypeConstraint for assertion (rjbs)
* Moose::Exporter
- Make "use Moose -metaclass => 'Foo'" do alias resolution, like -traits
does. (doy)
- Allow specifying role options (alias, excludes, MXRP stuff) in the
arrayref passed to "use Moose -traits" (doy)
* Moose::Util
- Add functions meta_class_alias and meta_attribute_alias for creating
aliases for class and attribute metaclasses and metatraits. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
* Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor
- A trigger now receives the old value as a second argument, if the
attribute had one. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- Fix a bug with $obj->new when $obj has stringify overloading.
Reported by Andrew Suffield [ #47882] (Sartak)
- However, we will probably deprecate $obj->new, so please don't start
using it for new code!
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::RoleSummation
- Rename alias and excludes to -alias and -excludes (but keep the old
names for now, for backcompat) (doy)
0.88 Fri Jul 24, 2009
* Moose::Manual::Contributing
- Re-write the Moose::Manual::Contributing document to reflect
the new layout and methods of work for the Git repository. All
work now should be done in topic branches and reviewed by a
core committer before being applied to master. All releases
are done by a cabal member and merged from master to
stable. This plan was devised by Yuval, blame him. (perigrin)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Create metaclass attributes for the different role application
classes. (rafl)
* Moose::Util::MetaRole
- Allow applying roles to a meta role's role application
classes. (rafl)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Add weak_ref to allowed options for "has '+foo'" (mst)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor
- No longer uses inline_slot_access in accessors, to support
non-lvalue-based meta instances. (sorear)
0.87 Tue Jul 7, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation
- Once again allow class names as well as objects for
delegation. This was changed in 0.86.
0.86 Fri Jul 3, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Class::Immutable::Trait
- Fixes to work with the latest Class::MOP.
* Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation
- Delegation now dies with a more useful error message if the
attribute's accessor returns something defined but
unblessed. (hdp)
0.85 Fri, Jun 26, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- The warning for 'no associated methods' is now split out into
the _check_associated_methods method, so that extensions can
safely call 'after install_accessors => ...'. This fixes a
warning from MooseX::AttributeHelpers. (hdp)
0.84 Fri, Jun 26, 2009
* Moose::Role
- has now sets definition_context for attributes defined in
roles. (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- When adding an attribute to a metaclass, if the attribute has
no associated methods, it will give a deprecation
warning. (hdp)
- Methods generated by delegation were not being added to
associated_methods. (hdp)
- Attribute accessors (reader, writer, accessor, predicate,
clearer) now warn if they overwrite an existing method. (doy)
- Attribute constructors now warn very noisily about unknown (or
misspelled) arguments
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Deprecated the totally useless Role type name, which just
checked if $object->can('does'). Note that this is _not_ the
same as a type created by calling role_type('RoleName').
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::DuckType
- Reify duck type from a regular subtype into an actual class
- Document this because Sartak did all my work for me
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Allow Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::DuckType in handles, since
it is just a list of methods (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- The get_*_method_modifiers methods would die if the role had
no modifiers of the given type (Robert Buels).
0.83 Tue, Jun 23, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Fix _construct_instance not setting the special __MOP__ object
key in instances of anon classes. (doy)
0.82 Sun, Jun 21, 2009
* Moose::Manual::Types
- Mention MooseX::Types early to avoid users falling down the
string parsing rathole (mst)
* Moose::Manual::MooseX
- Add warnings about class-level extensions and mention considering
using plain objects instead
0.81 Sun, Jun 7, 2009
* Bumped our Class::MOP prereq to the latest version (0.85), since
that's what we need.
0.80 Sat, Jun 6, 2009
* Moose::Manual::FAQ
- Add FAQ about the coercion change from 0.76 because it came up
three times today (perigrin)
- Win doy $10 dollars because Sartak didn't think anybody
would document this fast enough (perigrin)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Destructor
- Inline a DESTROY method even if there are no DEMOLISH methods
to prevent unnecessary introspection in
* Moose::*
- A role's required methods are now represented by
Moose::Meta::Role::Method::Required objects. Conflicts are now
represented by Moose::Meta::Role::Method::Conflicting
objects. The benefit for end-users in that unresolved
conflicts generate different, more instructive, errors,
resolving Ovid's #44895. (Sartak)
* Moose::Role
- Improve the error message of "extends" as suggested by Adam
Kennedy and confound (Sartak)
- Link to Moose::Manual::Roles from Moose::Role as we now have
excellent documentation (Adam Kennedy)
* Tests
- Update test suite for subname change in Class::MOP
- Add TODO test for infinite recursion in Moose::Meta::Class
0.79 Wed, May 13, 2009
* Tests
- More fixes for Win32 problems. Reported by Robert Krimen.
* Moose::Object
- The DEMOLISHALL method could still blow up in some cases
during global destruction. This method has been made more
resilient in the face of global destruction's random garbage
collection order.
* Moose::Exporter
- If you "also" a module that isn't loaded, the error message
now acknowledges that (Sartak)
* Moose
- When your ->meta method does not return a Moose::Meta::Class,
the error message gave the wrong output (Sartak)
0.78 Tue, May 12, 2009
* Moose::Cookbook::FAQ and Moose::Cookbook::WTF
- Merged these documents into what is now Moose::Manual::FAQ
* Moose::Unsweetened
- Moved to Moose::Manual::Unsweetened
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipes 9-12
- Renamed to be 8-11, since recipe 8 did not exist
* Moose::Exporter
- Make Moose::Exporter import strict and warnings into packages
that use it (doy)
* Moose::Object
- Fix DEMOLISHALL sometimes not being able to find DEMOLISH
methods during global destruction (doy)
* Moose::Meta::Class
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToClass
- Track the Role::Application objects created during class-role
consumption (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Fix metaclass incompatibility errors when extending a vanilla perl
class which isa Moose class with a metaclass role applied (t0m)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Add a role-combination hook, _role_for_combination, for the
benefit of MooseX::Role::Parameterized (Sartak)
* Tests
- Some tests were failing on Win32 because they explicit checked
warning output for newlines. Reported by Nickolay Platonov.
0.77 Sat, May 2, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Add explicit use of Devel::GlobalDestruction and Sub::Name
* Moose::Object
- Pass a boolean to DEMOLISHALL and DEMOLISH indicating whether
or not we are currently in global destruction (doy)
- Add explicit use of Devel::GlobalDestruction and Sub::Name
* Moose::Cookbook::FAQ
- Reworked much of the existing content to be more useful to
modern Moose hackers (Sartak)
* Makefile.PL
- Depend on Class::MOP 0.83 instead of 0.82_01.
0.76 Mon, April 27, 2009
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- Do not run coercions in coerce() if the value already passes the type
constraint (hdp)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Class
- In validation error messages, specifically say that the value is not
an instance of the class. This should alleviate some frustrating
forgot-to-load-my-type bugs. #44639 (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToClass
- Revert the class-overrides-role warning in favor of a solution outside
of the Moose core (Sartak)
* Tests
- Make Test::Output optional again, since it's only used in a few files
0.75_01 Thu, April 23, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToClass
- Moose now warns about each class overriding methods from roles it
consumes (Sartak)
* Tests
- Warnings tests have standardized on Test::Output which is now an
unconditionally dependency (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Changes to immutabilization to work with Class::MOP 0.82_01+.
0.75 Mon, April 20, 2009
* Moose
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Move validation of not inheriting from roles from Moose::extends to
Moose::Meta::Class::superclasses (doy)
* Moose::Util
- add ensure_all_roles() function to encapsulate the common "apply this
role unless the object already does it" pattern (hdp)
* Moose::Exporter
- Users can now select a different metaclass with the "-metaclass"
option to import, for classes and roles (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Make method_metaclass an attr so that it can accept a metarole
application. (jdv)
0.74 Tue, April 7, 2009
* Moose::Meta::Role
* Moose::Meta::Method::Destructor
- Include stack traces in the deprecation warnings.
(Florian Ragwitz)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Removed the long-deprecated _apply_all_roles method.
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- Removed the long-deprecated union method.
0.73_02 Mon, April 6, 2009
* More deprecations and renamings
- Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- initialize_body => _initialize_body (this is always called
when an object is constructed)
* Moose::Object
- The DEMOLISHALL method could throw an exception during global
destruction, meaning that your class's DEMOLISH methods would
not be properly called. Reported by t0m.
* Moose::Meta::Method::Destructor
- Destructor inlining was totally broken by the change to the
is_needed method in 0.72_01. Now there is a test for this
feature, and it works again.
* Moose::Util
- Bold the word 'not' in the POD for find_meta (t0m)
0.73_01 Sun, April 5, 2009
* Moose::*
- Call user_class->meta in fewer places, with the eventual goal
of allowing the user to rename or exclude ->meta
altogether. Instead uses Class::MOP::class_of. (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor
- If an attribute had a lazy default, and that value did not
pass the attribute's type constraint, it did not get the
message from the type constraint, instead using a generic
message. Test provided by perigrin.
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Add duck_type keyword. It's sugar over making sure an object
can() a list of methods. This is easier than jrockway's
suggestion to fork all of CPAN. (perigrin)
- add tests and documentation (perigrin)
* Moose
- Document the fact that init_meta() returns the target class's
metaclass object. (hdp)
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe1
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe2
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe3
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe4
- Make init_meta() examples explicitly return the metaclass and
point out this fact. (hdp)
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe12
- A new recipe, creating a custom meta-method class.
* Moose::Cookbook::Meta::Recipe6
- A new recipe, creating a custom meta-method class.
* Moose::Meta::Class
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- Attribute triggers no longer receive the meta-attribute object
as an argument in any circumstance. Previously, triggers
called during instance construction were passed the
meta-attribute, but triggers called by normal accessors were
not. Fixes RT#44429, reported by Mark Swayne. (hdp)
* Moose::Manual::Attributes
- Remove references to triggers receving the meta-attribute object as an
argument. (hdp)
* Moose::Cookbook::FAQ
- Remove recommendation for deprecated Moose::Policy and
Moose::Policy::FollowPBP; recommend MooseX::FollowPBP
instead. (hdp)
* Many methods have been renamed with a leading underscore, and a
few have been deprecated entirely. The methods with a leading
underscore are consider "internals only". People writing
subclasses or extensions to Moose should feel free to override
them, but they are not for "public" use.

- attributes => _attributes (now inherited from parent)
- meta_instance => _meta_instance (now inherited from parent)
- Moose::Meta::Role
- alias_method is deprecated. Use add_method
0.73 Fri, March 29, 2009
* No changes from 0.72_01.
0.72_01 Thu, March 26, 2009
* Everything
- Almost every module has complete API documentation. A few
methods (and even whole classes) have been intentionally
excluded pending some rethinking of their APIs.
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Calling subtype with a name as the only argument is now an
exception. If you want an anonymous subtype do:
my $subtype = subtype as 'Foo';
* Moose::Cookbook::Meta::Recipe7
- A new recipe, creating a custom meta-instance class.
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe5
- Fix various typos and mistakes. Includes a patch from Radu
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe9
- Link to this recipe from's builder blurb
* Moose::Exporter
- When wrapping a function with a prototype, Moose::Exporter now
makes sure the wrapped function still has the same
prototype. (Daisuke Maki)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Allow a subclass to set lazy_build for an inherited
attribute. (hdp)
* Makefile.PL
- Explicitly depend on Data::OptList. We already had this dependency
via Sub::Exporter, but since we're using it directly we're
better off with it listed. (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- Make it easier to subclass the inlining behaviour. (Ash
* Moose::Manual::Delta
- Details significant changes in the history of Moose, along
with recommended workarounds.
* Moose::Manual::Contributing
- Contributor's guide to Moose.
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- The long-deprecated intialize_body method has been removed
(yes, spelled like that).
* Moose::Meta::Method::Destructor
- This is_needed method is now always a class method.
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Changes to the internals of how make_immutable works to match
changes in latest Class::MOP.
0.72 Mon, February 23, 2009
* Moose::Object
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- A mutable class accepted Foo->new(undef) without complaint,
while an immutable class would blow up with an unhelpful
error. Now, in both cases we throw a helpful error
instead. Reported by doy.
0.71_01 Sun, February 22, 2009
* Moose::Cookbook
- Hopefully fixed some POD errors in a few recipes that caused
them to display weird on
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Calling type or subtype without the sugar helpers (as, where,
message) is now deprecated.
- The subtype function tried hard to guess what you meant, but
often got it wrong. For example:
my $subtype = subtype as 'ArrayRef[Object]';
This caused an error in the past, but now works as you'd
* Everywhere
- Make sure is loaded before calling
Moose->throw_error. This wasn't normally an issue, but could
bite you in weird cases.
0.71 Thu, February 19, 2009
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe11
- A new recipe which demonstrates the use of BUILDARGS and
BUILD. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Roles::Recipe3
- A new recipe, applying a role to an object instance. (Dave
* Moose::Exporter
- Allow overriding specific keywords from "also" packages. (doy)
* Tests
- Replace hardcoded cookbook tests with Test::Inline to ensure
the tests match the actual code in the recipes. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook
- Working on the above turned up a number of little bugs in the
recipe code. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints::Optimized
- Just use Class::MOP for the optimized ClassName check. (Dave
0.70 Sat, February 14, 2009
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Added the RoleName type (stevan)
- added tests for this (stevan)
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe3
- Updated the before qw[left right] sub to be a little more
defensive about what it accepts (stevan)
- added more tests to t/000_recipies/basics/003_binary_tree.t
* Moose::Object
- We now always call DEMOLISHALL, even if a class does not
define DEMOLISH. This makes sure that method modifiers on
DEMOLISHALL work as expected. (doy)
- added tests for this (EvanCarroll)
* Moose::Util::MetaRole
- Accept roles for the wrapped_method_metaclass (rafl)
- added tests for this (rafl)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- We no longer pass the meta-attribute object as a final
argument to triggers. This actually changed for inlined code a
while back, but the non-inlined version and the docs were
still out of date.
* Tests
- Some tests tried to use Test::Warn 0.10, which had bugs. Now
they require 0.11. (Dave Rolsky)
* Documentation
- Lots of small changes to the manual, cookbook, and
elsewhere. These were based on feedback from various
users, too many to list here. (Dave Rolsky)
0.69 Thu, February 12, 2009
* Moose
- Make some keyword errors use throw_error instead of croak
since Moose::Exporter wraps keywords now (Sartak)
* Moose::Cookbook::*
- Revised every recipe for style and clarity. Also moved some
documentation out of cookbook recipes and into Moose::Manual
pages. This work was funded as part of the Moose docs grant
from TPF. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation
- If the attribute doing the delegation was not populated, the
error message did not specify the attribute name
properly. (doy)
0.68 Wed, February 4, 2009
- Many spelling, typo, and formatting fixes by daxim.
* Moose::Manual::Attributes
- The NAME section in the POD used "Attribute" so search.cpan
didn't resolve links from other documents properly.
* Moose::Meta::Method::Overriden
- Now properly spelled as Overridden. Thanks to daxim for
noticing this.
0.67 Tue, February 3, 2009
* Moose::Manual::*
- Lots of little typo fixes and a few clarifications. Several
pages didn't have proper titles, and so weren't actually
visible on Thanks to hanekomu for a variety
of fixes and formatting improvements.
0.66 Tue, February 3, 2009
* Moose::Manual
- This is a brand new, extensive manual for Moose. This aims to
provide a complete introduction to all of Moose's
features. This work was funded as part of the Moose docs grant
from TPF. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Added a delegation_metaclass method to replace a hard-coded
use of Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- If you created a subtype and passed a parent that Moose didn't
know about, it simply ignored the parent. Now it automatically
creates the parent as a class type. This may not be what you
want, but is less broken than before. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- This module tried throw errors by calling Moose->throw_error,
but it did not ensure that Moose was loaded first. This could
cause very unhelpful errors when it tried to throw an error
before Moose was loaded. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- You could declare a name with subtype such as "Foo!Bar" that
would be allowed, but if you used it in a parameterized type
such as "ArrayRef[Foo!Bar]" it wouldn't work. We now do some
vetting on names created via the sugar functions, so that they
can only contain alphanumerics, ":", and ".". (Dave Rolsky)
0.65 Thu, January 22, 2008
* Moose and Moose::Meta::Method::Overridden
- If an overridden method called super(), and then the
superclass's method (not overridden) _also_ called super(),
Moose went into an endless recursion loop. Test provided by
Chris Prather. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- All methods are now documented. (gphat)
* t/100_bugs/011_DEMOLISH_eats_exceptions.t
- Fixed some bogus failures that occurred because we tried to
validate filesystem paths in a very ad-hoc and
not-quite-correct way. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Added maybe_type to exports. See docs for details. (rjbs)
* Moose
- Added Moose::Util::TypeConstraints to the SEE ALSO
section. (pjf)
* Moose::Role
- Methods created via an attribute can now fulfill a "requires"
declaration for a role. (nothingmuch)
* Moose::Meta::Method::*
- Stack traces from inlined code will now report its line and
file as being in your class, as opposed to in Moose
guts. (nothingmuch).
0.64 Wed, December 31, 2008
* Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor
- Always inline predicate and clearer methods (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Support for parameterized traits (Sartak)
- verify_against_type_constraint method to avoid duplication
and enhance extensibility (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Tests (but no support yet) for parameterized traits (Sartak)
* Moose
- Require Class::MOP 0.75+, which has the side effect of making
sure we work on Win32. (Dave Rolsky)
0.63 Mon, December 8, 2008
* Moose::Unsweetened
- Some small grammar tweaks and bug fixes in non-Moose example
code. (Dave Rolsky)
0.62_02 Fri, December 5, 2008
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToClass
- When a class does not provide all of a role's required
methods, the error thrown now mentions all of the missing
methods, as opposed to just the first one found. Requested by
Curtis Poe (RT #41119). (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- Moose will no longer inline a constructor for your class
unless it inherits its constructor from Moose::Object, and
will warn when it doesn't inline. If you want to force
inlining anyway, pass "replace_constructor => 1" to
make_immutable. Addresses RT #40968, reported by Jon
Swartz. (Dave Rolsky)
- The quoting of default values could be broken if the default
contained a single quote ('). Now we use quotemeta to escape
anything potentially dangerous in the defaults. (Dave Rolsky)
0.62_01 Wed, December 3, 2008
* Moose::Object
- use the method->execute API for BUILDALL
and DEMOLISHALL (Sartak)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- We now make all the type constraint meta classes immutable
before creating the default types provided by Moose. This
should make loading Moose a little faster. (Dave Rolsky)
0.62 Wed November 26, 2008
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToClass
- fixed issues where excluding and aliasing the
same methods for a single role did not work
right (worked just fine with multiple
roles) (stevan)
- added test for this (stevan)
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::RoleSummation
- fixed the error message when trying to compose
a role with a role it excludes (Sartak)
* Moose::Exporter
- Catch another case where recursion caused the value
of $CALLER to be stamped on (t0m)
- added test for this (t0m)
* Moose
- Remove the make_immutable keyword, which has been
deprecated since April. It breaks metaclasses that
use Moose without no Moose (Sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Removing an attribute from a class now also removes delegation
(handles) methods installed for that attribute (t0m)
- added test for this (t0m)
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- An attribute with a default that looked like a number (but was
really a string) would accidentally be treated as a number
when the constructor was made immutable (perigrin)
- added test for this (perigrin)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- create method for constructing a role
dynamically (Sartak)
- added test for this (Sartak)
- anonymous roles! (Sartak)
- added test for this (Sartak)
* Moose::Role
- more consistent error messages (Sartak)
* Moose::Cookbook::Roles::Recipe1
- attempt to explain why a role that just requires
methods is useful (Sartak)
0.61 Fri November 7, 2008
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- When passing a role to handles, it will be loaded if necessary
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Method objects returned by get_method (and other methods)
Could end up being returned without an associated_metaclass
attribute. Removing get_method_map, which is provided by
Class::MOP::Class, fixed this. The Moose version did nothing
different from its parent except introduce a bug. (Dave Rolsky)
- added tests for this (jdv79)
* Various
- Added a $VERSION to all .pm files which didn't have one. Fixes
RT #40049, reported by Adam Kennedy. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe4
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe6
- These files had spaces on the first line of the SYNOPSIS, as
opposed to a totally empty line. According to RT #40432, this
confuses POD parsers. (Dave Rolsky)
0.60 Fri October 24, 2008
* Moose::Exporter
- Passing "-traits" when loading Moose caused the
exports to be broken. Reported by t0m. (Dave Rolsky)
- Tests for this bug. (t0m)
* Moose::Util
- Change resolve_metaclass alias to use the new
load_first_existing_class function. This makes it a lot
simpler, and also around 5 times faster. (t0m)
- Add caching to resolve_metaclass_alias, which gives an order
of magnitude speedup to things which repeatedly call the
Moose::Meta::Attribute->does method, notably MooseX::Storage
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraint
- Put back the changes for parameterized constraints that
shouldn't have been removed in 0.59. We still cannot parse
them, but MooseX modules can create them in some other
way. See the 0.58 changes for more details. (jnapiorkowski)
- Changed the way subtypes are created so that the job is
delegated to a type constraint parent. This clears up some
hardcoded checking and should allow correct subtypes of
Moose::Meta::Type::Constraint. Don't rely on this new API too
much (create_child_type) because it may go away in the
future. (jnapiorkowski)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union
- Type constraint names are sorted as strings, not numbers.
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Parameterizable
- New parameterize method. This can be used as a factory method
to make a new type constraint with a given parameterized
type. (jnapiorkowski)
- added tests (jnapiorkowski)
0.59 Tue October 14, 2008
* Moose
- Add abridged documentation for builder/default/initializer/
predicate, and link to more details sections in
Class::MOP::Attribute. (t0m)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- removed prototypes from all but the &-based stuff (mst)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Creating a anonymous subtype with both a constraint and a
message failed with a very unhelpful error, but should just
work. Reported by t0m. (Dave Rolsky)
* Tests
- Some tests that used Test::Warn if it was available failed
with older versions of Test::Warn. Reported by Fayland. (Dave
- Test firing behavior of triggers in relation to builder/default/
lazy_build. (t0m)
- Test behavior of equals/is_a_type_of/is_a_subtype_of for all
kinds of supported type. (t0m)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- In create(), do not pass "roles" option to the superclass
- added related test that creates an anon metaclass with
a required attribute
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Class
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Role
- Unify behavior of equals/is_a_type_of/is_a_subtype_of with
other types (as per change in 0.55_02). (t0m)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Registry
- Fix warning when dealing with unknown type names (t0m)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Reverted changes from 0.58 related to handle parameterized
types. This caused random failures on BSD and Win32 systems,
apparently related to the regex engine. This means that Moose
can no longer parse structured type constraints like
ArrayRef[Int,Int] or HashRef[name=>Str]. This will be
supported in a slightly different way via MooseX::Types some
time in the future. (Dave Rolsky)
0.58 Sat September 20, 2008
!! This release has an incompatible change regarding !!
!! how roles add methods to a class !!
* Roles and role application
! Roles now add methods by calling add_method, not
alias_method. They make sure to always provide a method
object, which will be cloned internally. This means that it is
now possible to track the source of a method provided by a
role, and even follow its history through intermediate roles.
This means that methods added by a role now show up when
looking at a class's method list/map. (Dave Rolsky)
* Makefile.PL
- From this release on, we'll try to maintain a list of
conflicting modules, and warn you if you have one
installed. For example, this release conflicts with ...
- MooseX::Singleton <= 0.11
- MooseX::Params::Validate <= 0.05
- Fey::ORM <= 0.10
In general, we try to not break backwards compatibility for
most Moose users, but MooseX modules and other code which
extends Moose's metaclasses is often affected by very small
changes in the Moose internals.
* Moose::Meta::Method::Delegation
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- Delegation methods now have their own method class. (Dave
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Parameterizable
- Added a new method 'parameterize' which is basically a factory
for the containing constraint. This makes it easier to create
new types of parameterized constraints. (jnapiorkowski)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union
- Changed the way Union types canonicalize their names to follow
the normalized TC naming rules, which means we strip all
whitespace. (jnapiorkowski)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Parameter and Union args are now sorted, this makes Int|Str
the same constraint as Str|Int. (jnapiorkowski)
- Changes to the way Union types are parsed to more correctly
stringify their names. (jnapiorkowski)
- When creating a parameterized type, we now use the new
parameterize method. (jnapiorkowski)
- Incoming type constraint strings are now normalized to remove
all whitespace differences. (jnapiorkowski)
- Changed the way we parse type constraint strings so that we now
match TC[Int,Int,...] and TC[name=>Str] as parameterized type
constraints. This lays the foundation for more flexible type
constraint implementations.
* Tests and docs for all the above. (jnapiorkowski)
* Moose::Exporter
* Moose
- Moose::Exporter will no longer remove a subroutine that the
exporting package re-exports. Moose re-exports the
Carp::confess function, among others. The reasoning is that we
cannot know whether you have also explicitly imported those
functions for your own use, so we err on the safe side and
always keep them. (Dave Rolsky)
- added tests for this (rafl)
* Moose::Meta::Class
- Changes to how we fix metaclass compatibility that are much
too complicated to go into. The summary is that Moose is much
less likely to complain about metaclass incompatibility
now. In particular, if two metaclasses differ because
Moose::Util::MetaRole was used on the two corresponding
classes, then the difference in roles is reconciled for the
subclass's metaclass. (Dave Rolsky)
- Squashed an warning in _process_attribute (thepler)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- throw exceptions (sooner) for invalid attribute names (thepler)
- added tests for this (thepler)
* Moose::Util::MetaRole
- If you explicitly set a constructor or destructor class for a
metaclass object, and then applied roles to the metaclass,
that explicitly set class would be lost and replaced with the
* Moose::Meta::Class
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
* Moose::Meta::Method
* Moose
* Moose::Object
* Moose::Error::Default
* Moose::Error::Croak
* Moose::Error::Confess
- All instances of confess() changed to use overridable
C<throw_error> method. This method ultimately calls a class
constructor, and you can change the class being called. In
addition, errors now pass more information than just a string.
The default C<error_class> behaves like C<Carp::confess>, so
the behavior is not visibly different for end users.
0.57 Wed September 3, 2008
* Moose::Intro
- A new bit of doc intended to introduce folks familiar with
"standard" Perl 5 OO to Moose concepts. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Unsweetened
- Shows examples of two classes, each done first with and then
without Moose. This makes a nice parallel to
Moose::Intro. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Fixed a bug in find_or_parse_type_constraint so that it
accepts a Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint object as the parent
type, not just a name (jnapiorkowski)
- added tests (jnapiorkowski)
* Moose::Exporter
- If Sub::Name was not present, unimporting failed to actually
remove some sugar subs, causing test failures (Dave Rolsky)
0.56 Mon September 1, 2008
For those not following the series of dev releases, there are
several major changes in this release of Moose.
! Moose::init_meta should now be called as a method. See the
docs for details.
- Major performance improvements by nothingmuch.
- New modules for extension writers, Moose::Exporter and
Moose::Util::MetaRole by Dave Rolsky.
- Lots of doc improvements and additions, especially in the
cookbook sections.
- Various bug fixes.
* Removed all references to the experimental-but-no-longer-needed
* Require Class::MOP 0.65.
0.55_04 Sat August 30, 2008
* Moose::Util::MetaRole
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe2
- This simplifies the application of roles to any meta class, as
well as the base object class. Reimplemented metaclass traits
using this module. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe1
- This a new recipe, an overview of various ways to write Moose
extensions (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe3
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe4
- These used to be Extending::Recipe1 and Extending::Recipe2,
0.55_03 Fri August 29, 2008
* No changes from 0.55_02 except increasing the Class::MOP
dependency to 0.64_07.
0.55_02 Fri August 29, 2008
* Makefile.PL and
- explicitly require Perl 5.8.0+ (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- Fix warnings from find_type_constraint if the type is not
found (t0m).
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- Predicate methods (equals/is_a_type_of/is_subtype_of) now
return false if the type you specify cannot be found in the
type registry, rather than throwing an unhelpful and
coincidental exception. (t0m).
- added docs & test for this (t0m)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Registry
- add_type_constraint now throws an exception if a parameter is
not supplied (t0m).
- added docs & test for this (t0m)
* Moose::Cookbook::FAQ
- Added a faq entry on the difference between "role" and "trait"
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Fixed a bug that caused role composition to not see a required
method when that method was provided by another role being
composed at the same time. (Dave Rolsky)
- test and bug finding (tokuhirom)
0.55_01 Wed August 20, 2008
!! Calling Moose::init_meta as a function is now !!
!! deprecated. Please see the docs for details. !!
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- Fix inlined constructor so that values produced by default
or builder methods are coerced as required. (t0m)
- added test for this (t0m)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- A lazy attribute with a default or builder did not attempt to
coerce the default value. The immutable code _did_
coerce. (t0m)
- added test for this (t0m)
* Moose::Exporter
- This is a new helper module for writing "Moose-alike"
modules. This should make the lives of MooseX module authors
much easier. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose
* Moose::Cookbook::Meta::Recipe5
- Implemented metaclass traits (and wrote a recipe for it):
use Moose -traits => 'Foo'
This should make writing small Moose extensions a little
easier (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe1
- Removed any examples of direct hashref access, and applied an
editorial axe to reduce verbosity. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe1
- Also applied an editorial axe here. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe1
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe2
- Rewrote extending and embedding moose documentation and
recipes to use Moose::Exporter (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose
* Moose::Role
- These two modules now warn when you load them from the main
package "main" package, because we will not export sugar to
main. Previously it just did nothing. (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Role
- Now provide an init_meta method just like, and you
can call this to provide an alternate role metaclass. (Dave
Rolsky and nothingmuch)
- get_method_map now respects the package cache flag (nothingmuch)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- Two new methods - add_method and wrap_method_body
* many modules
- Optimizations including allowing constructors to accept hash
refs, making many more classes immutable, and making
constructors immutable. (nothingmuch)
0.55 Sun August 3, 2008
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- breaking down the way 'handles' methods are
created so that the process can be more easily
overridden by subclasses (stevan)
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- fixing what is passed into a ->message with
the type constraints (RT #37569)
- added tests for this (Charles Alderman)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- fix coerce to accept anon types like subtype can (mst)
* Moose::Cookbook
- reorganized the recipes into sections - Basics, Roles, Meta,
Extending - and wrote abstracts for each section (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe10
- A new recipe that demonstrates operator overloading
in combination with Moose. (bluefeet)
* Moose::Cookbook::Meta::Recipe1
- an introduction to what meta is and why you'd want to make
your own metaclass extensions (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Meta::Recipe4
- a very simple metaclass example (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe1
- how to write a Moose-alike module to use your own object base
class (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Cookbook::Extending::Recipe2
- how to write modules with an API just like C<> (Dave
* all documentation
- Tons of fixes, both syntactical and grammatical (Dave
Rolsky, Paul Fenwick)
0.54 Thurs. July 3, 2008
... this is not my day today ...
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- fixed legal_options_for_inheritance such that
clone_and_inherit options still works for
Class::MOP::Attribute objects and therefore
does not break MooseX::AttributeHelpers
0.53 Thurs. July 3, 2008
* Whoops, I guess I should run 'make manifest' before
actually releasing the module. No actual changes
in this release, except the fact that it includes
the changes that I didn't include in the last
release. (stevan--)
0.52 Thurs. July 3, 2008
* Moose
- added "FEATURE REQUESTS" section to the Moose docs
to properly direct people (stevan) (RT #34333)
- making 'extends' croak if it is passed a Role since
this is not ever something you want to do
(fixed by stevan, found by obra)
- added tests for this (stevan)
* Moose::Object
- adding support for DOES (as in UNIVERSAL::DOES)
- added test for this
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- added legal_options_for_inheritance (wreis)
- added tests for this (wreis)
* Moose::Cookbook::Snacks::*
- removed some of the unfinished snacks that should
not have been released yet. Added some more examples
to the 'Keywords' snack. (stevan)
* Moose::Cookbook::Style
- added general Moose "style guide" of sorts to the
cookbook (nothingmuch) (RT #34335)
* t/
- added more BUILDARGS tests (stevan)
0.51 Thurs. Jun 26, 2008
* Moose::Role
- add unimport so "no Moose::Role" actually does
something (sartak)
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::ToRole
- when RoleA did RoleB, and RoleA aliased a method from RoleB in
order to provide its own implementation, that method still got
added to the list of required methods for consumers of
RoleB. Now an aliased method is only added to the list of
required methods if the role doing the aliasing does not
provide its own implementation. See Recipe 11 for an example
of all this. (Dave Rolsky)
- added tests for this
* Moose::Meta::Method::Constructor
- when a single argument that wasn't a hashref was provided to
an immutabilized constructor, the error message was very
unhelpful, as opposed to the non-immutable error. Reported by
dew. (Dave Rolsky)
- added test for this (Dave Rolsky)
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- added support for meta_attr->does("ShortAlias") (sartak)
- added tests for this (sartak)
- moved the bulk of the `handles` handling to the new
install_delegation method (Stevan)
* Moose::Object
- Added BUILDARGS, a new step in new()
* Moose::Meta::Role::Application::RoleSummation
- fix typos no one ever sees (sartak)
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints

HashRef[Object] # a hash with object values
They can also be nested:
ArrayRef[HashRef[RegexpRef]] # an array of hashes with regex values
And work with the type unions as well:
ArrayRef[Int | Str] # array of integers of strings
* Better Framework Extendability is now "extendable" such that it is now much
easier to extend the framework and add your own keywords
and customizations. See the "EXTENDING AND EMBEDDING MOOSE"
section of the docs.
* Moose Snacks!
In an effort to begin documenting some of the various
details of Moose as well as some common idioms, we have
created Moose::Cookbook::Snacks as a place to find
small (easily digestable) nuggets of Moose code.

!! You must have Class::MOP 0.37_001 !!
!! for this developer release to work !!
This release was primarily adding the immutable
feature to Moose. An immutable class is one which
you promise not to alter. When you set the class
as immutable it will perform various bits of
memoization and inline certain part of the code
(constructors, destructors and accessors). This
minimizes (and in some cases totally eliminates)
one of Moose's biggest performance hits. This
feature is not on by default, and is 100% optional.
It has several configurable bits as well, so you
can pick and choose to your specific needs.
The changes involved in this were fairly wide and
highly specific, but 100% backwards compatible, so
I am not going to enumerate them here. If you are
truely interested in what was changed, please do
a diff :)
0.17 Tues. Nov. 14, 2006
* Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor
- bugfix for read-only accessors which
are have a type constraint and lazy.
Thanks to chansen for finding it.
0.16 Tues. Nov. 14, 2006
++ NOTE ++
There are some speed improvements in this release,
but they are only the begining, so stay tuned.
* Moose::Object
- BUILDALL and DEMOLISHALL no longer get
called unless they actually need to be.
This gave us a signifigant speed boost
for the cases when there is no BUILD or
DEMOLISH method present.
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- added an 'optimize_as' option to the
type constraint, which allows for a
hand optimized version of the type
constraint to be used when possible.
- Any internally created type constraints
now provide an optimized version as well.
0.15 Sun. Nov. 5, 2006
++ NOTE ++
This version of Moose *must* have Class::MOP 0.36 in order
to work correctly. A number of small internal tweaks have
been made in order to be compatible with that release.
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- added &unimport so that you can clean out
your class namespace of these exported
* Moose::Meta::Class
- fixed minor issue which occasionally
comes up during global destruction
(thanks omega)
- moved Moose::Meta::Method::Overriden into
its own file.
* Moose::Meta::Role
- moved Moose::Meta::Role::Method into
its own file.
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- changed how we do type checks so that
we reduce the overall cost, but still
retain correctness.
*** API CHANGE ***
- moved accessor generation methods to
Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor to
conform to the API changes from
Class::MOP 0.36
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- changed how constraints are compiled
so that we do less recursion and more
iteration. This makes the type check
faster :)
- moved Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union
into its own file
* Moose::Meta::Method::Accessor
- created this from methods formerly found in
* Moose::Meta::Role::Method
- moved this from Moose::Meta::Role
* Moose::Meta::Method::Overriden
- moved this from Moose::Meta::Class
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union
- moved this from Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
0.14 Mon. Oct. 9, 2006
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- fixed lazy attributes which were not getting
checked with the type constraint (thanks ashley)
- added tests for this
- removed the over-enthusiastic DWIMery of the
automatic ArrayRef and HashRef defaults, it
broke predicates in an ugly way.
- removed tests for this
0.13 Sat. Sept. 30, 2006
++ NOTE ++
This version of Moose *must* have Class::MOP 0.35 in order
to work correctly. A number of small internal tweaks have
been made in order to be compatible with that release.
* Moose
- Removed the use of UNIVERSAL::require to be a better
symbol table citizen and remove a dependency
(thanks Adam Kennedy)
**~~ removed experimental & undocumented feature ~~**
- commented out the 'method' and 'self' keywords, see the
comments for more info.
* Moose::Cookbook
- added a FAQ and WTF files to document frequently
asked questions and common problems
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- added GlobRef and FileHandle type constraint
- added tests for this
* Moose::Meta::Attribute
- if your attribute 'isa' ArrayRef of HashRef, and you have
not explicitly set a default, then make the default DWIM.
This will also work for subtypes of ArrayRef and HashRef
as well.
- you can now auto-deref subtypes of ArrayRef or HashRef too.
- new test added for this (thanks to ashley)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- added basic support for runtime role composition
but this is still *highly experimental*, so feedback
is much appreciated :)
- added tests for this
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- the type constraint now handles the coercion process
through delegation, this is to support the coercion
of unions
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint::Union
- it is now possible for coercions to be performed
on a type union
- added tests for this (thanks to konobi)
* Moose::Meta::TypeCoercion
- properly capturing error when type constraint
is not found
* Build.PL
- Scalar::Util 1.18 is bad on Win32, so temporarily
only require version 1.17 for Win32 and cygwin.
(thanks Adam Kennedy)
0.12 Sat. Sept. 1, 2006
* Moose::Cookbook
- Recipe5 (subtypes & coercion) has been written
* Moose
- fixed "bad meta" error message to be more descriptive
- fixed &unimport to not remove the &inner and &super
keywords because we need to localize them.
- fixed number of spelling/grammer issues, thanks Theory :)
**~~ experimental & undocumented feature ~~**
- added the method and self keywords, they are basically
just sugar, and they may not stay around.
* Moose::Object
- added &dump method to easily Data::Dumper
an object
* Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint
- added the &is_a_type_of method to check both the current
and the subtype of a method (similar to &isa with classes)
* Moose::Meta::Role
- this is now a subclass of Class::MOP::Module, and no longer
creates the _role_meta ugliness of before.
- fixed tests to reflect this change
0.11 Wed. July 12, 2006
* Moose
- added an &unimport method to remove all the keywords
that Moose will import, simply add 'no Moose' to the
bottom of your class file.
* t/
- fixed some test failures caused by a forgotten test
0.10 Thurs. July 6, 2006
* Moose
- improved error message when loading modules so
it is less confusing when you load a role.
- added &calculate_all_roles method to
Moose::Meta::Class and Moose::Meta::Role
This module has been tested against Class::MOP 0.30
but it does not yet utilize the optimizations
it makes available. Stay tuned for that ;)
0.09_03 Fri. June 23, 2006
* Moose
- 'use strict' and 'use warnings' are no longer
needed in Moose classes, Moose itself will
turn them on for you.

0.09_01 Fri. May 12, 2006
- This release works in combination with
Class::MOP 0.29_01, it is a developer
release because it uses the a new
instance sub-protocol and a fairly
complete Role implementation. It has
not yet been optimized, so it slower
the the previous CPAN version. This
release also lacks good updated docs,
the official release will have updated docs.
* Moose
- refactored the keyword exports
- 'with' now checks Role validaity and
accepts more than one Role at a time
- 'extends' makes metaclass adjustments as
needed to ensure metaclass compatibility
* Moose::Role
- refactored the keyword exports
- 'with' now checks Role validaity and
accepts more than one Role at a time
* Moose::Util::TypeConstraints
- added the 'enum' keyword for simple
string enumerations which can be used as
type constraints
- see example of usage in t/202_example.t
* Moose::Object
- more careful checking of params to new()
* Moose::Meta::Role
- much work done on the role composition
- many new tests for conflict detection
and composition edge cases
- not enough documentation, I suggest
looking at the tests
* Moose::Meta::Instance
- added new Instance metaclass to support
the new Class::MOP instance protocol
* Moose::Meta::Class
- some small changes to support the new
instance protocol
- some small additions to support Roles
* Moose::Meta::Attribute

by nothingmuch
- some small changes to support the new
instance protocol

thanks to chansen for this commit
- has keyword now takes a 'metaclass' option
