Hi fellow dancers!
We've met with Franck yesterday evening in order to speak about Dancer
and for trying to make some decisions regarding our development and
We decided the following:
* Our priority is to release Dancer 1.2, which will be the next stable
release on CPAN.
* The code is frozen until Dancer 1.2 is released: the only commits/pull
requests that are accepted until then are :
- a commit that fixes bug
- a commit that fixes a test script failure
- a commit that fixes a documentation issue
* Targets for Dancer 1.2
These are the key blocker points we identified for 1.2:
- Dancer::Headers is rewritten to be based on HTTP::Headers all along
the way (the current implementation is a weak point, identified by
- Deployment under Apache with CGI/FCGI and mod_perl should go
smoothly when following the documentation given in
Dancer::Deployment (this is a common problem regarding the mailing
list archives and we want to fix that).
- The new website design is shipped (we received a *huge* proposal
and every core developer agreed on the fact this design rocks
_a lot_. Check this draft out: http://cl.ly/72278b35886dda8878b3
By the way, a big thank to everyone who submitted a redesign
proposal, they were all looking great, but this one took our vote,
because it's really unique-looking and ... cool :)
=== [ What you can do to help us ] ===
We really want Dancer 1.2 to be rock solid. We welcome very much reports
about deployment issues, so feel free to contact us if you have any
problem with 1.1811
* Documentation reviews
Even if we did enhance a lot our documentation lately, typos and errors
still occur, so feel free to review Dancer::Deployment, Dancer::Cookbook
and Dancer::Tutorial. Pull requests are welcome for documentation fixes.
* Spread the word
Dancer is lucky enough to have lots of enthusisast users and we're very
proud of that. If you like Dancer, spread the word :) blog, tweet, talk
to your friends and coworkers. Show off some demo apps at work. This is
good marketing and it's quite as important as the code itself.
I'll try to write a mail to the list whenever we did some significant
progress regarding the 1.2 release, so stay tuned!
PS: no, there is no date scheduled yet for the release, don't ask ;)
