We're actually focused on preparing the 1.2 release, so we only do one 
thing: we fix bugs. This is the very best time for you to report those 
issues on GitHub. GitHub issue tracker is our main tool to keep track of 
unresolved issues.

So please, report them here if they're not already:

This one deserves an issue report.

Ideally, a test script that reproduces the error is the very best way to 
help us fix it (there are tons of test scripts in Dancer's t directory 
if you want to see how to write them).

Same thing.

This issue should be already fixed in our master branch, so please, pull 
the master branch and tell us if that fixes the issue (all you have to 
do is to set charset to "utf8" and all the outgoing content will be 
encoded appropriately).

An easy workaround for that is to rename your Dancer session name in 
your config: session_name: "Myapp1.session" That way, all your apps have 
a different session name and collisions disappear.

We want all of these issues to be fixed be fore 1.2 is released, so 
please, report them on the issue tracker and if you can, try to provide 
us with test scripts for reproducing the issues.

Thanks a lot!
