0.90 Saturday, Feb. 8th, 2014
!! ----------------------------------- !!
!! ----------------------------------- !!
!! This is the first step towards full !!
!! compatibility with the Promises/A+ !!
!! spec, at which we will declare this !!
!! to be module to be 1.0 !!
!! ----------------------------------- !!
NOTE: Pretty much everything in this
release is thanks to the work
of Clinton Gormley++
- Fixed the behavior of finally() to make
sure @results are passed along correctly
- Handle any "then"-able object to be returned
as a result, instead of only accepting
Promise objects
- then/done/finally now accept both callbacks
(CODE refs) and "Callable" objects (objects
of classes that overload the CODE de-ref
- New docs in Promises::Cookbook::GentleIntro.
- Doc fixes and CPAN repository metadata added,
thanks to David Steinbrunner for this
0.08 Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014
!! Thanks to clinton gormley for all these
!! changes. Please take note of the backcompat
!! breaking change for finalize().
- then() callbacks are now wrapped in
an eval block to prevent fatal exceptions
and to ensure that rejected promises
are propagated correctly
- renamed finalize() to done()
- added catch() sugar which takes just
an error handler
- added finally() handler which will
always be called, regardles of
whether the promise is resolved
or rejected, much like try/catch/finally
0.07 Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014
- fixing a issues with localizing
exceptions that were found by CPAN
- thanks to clinton gormley for
providing the fix for this
0.06 Friday, Jan. 17, 2014
- make sure to clear both resolved and
rejected callbacks after resolution,
thanks to clinton gormley for this.
- add event-loop specific backends to
allow promises to be resolved in an
async manner (as Promises/A+ suggests)
- thanks to clinton gormley for
starting this feature
- backend created for AE, AnyEvent
and EV
- backend for Mojo::IOLoop, thanks
to clinton gormley for this
- tests added
- add in finalize() operator for ending
a chain of promises (see docs for more
- thanks to clinton gormley for this
feature, docs and tests
0.05 Monday, Dec. 23, 2013
- catch exceptions in any callback and
call reject if they happen
- the 'promise' method on deferred objects
will now return a new Promises::Promise
instance each time it is called
- this prevents the memory cycle we
originally had
0.04 Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013
- The 'when' helper in is being
deprecated because it clashes with the
perl keyword. See RT #84024 for more info.
- 'when' renamed to 'collect'
- tests and docs adjusted accordingly
0.03 Sunday, Feb. 17th, 2013
- added a `deferred` helper function to
- fixed the reject call in `when`
(thanks to rafl for this)
- added tests for this
- large doc reworking
- moved things into a cookbook
- added example of usage with Mojo::IOLoop
- added comparison with Scala futures
- this still needs some work, but the
basics are ther
0.02 Saturday, Nov. 24th, 2012
- add several predicate methods to help when
interrogating status, this resolves RT #81278.
- thanks to Toby Inkster for this
- fixed error chaining so that the result of an
error in one step of the chain will be passed
onto the next step as well, this resolves
RT #81358.
- thanks to TOSHIOITO for this
- made error callbacks optional and ensured that
the errors will bubble to the next promise in
the chain, this resolves RT #81356.
- thanks again to TOSHIOITO for this
0.01 Friday, Nov. 16th, 2012
