Hi everyone!

We've done quite a few big things in Dancer2 and I'd like to share them. I
haven't sent an email about 0.151000 - released last week - so I'm going to
share some information about it too.

These two versions provide a few important changes:
* Introducing our policy document.
* Dancer2 Apps (Dancer2::Core::App) now build proper PSGI applications - *each
on its own*. This allows you to create much better PSGI apps, which will
interact much better. This will also disallow things we do not recommend,
such as "pass" and "forward" between Dancer Apps. The original `psgi_app`
keyword (and Dancer2 method) still works, just as before, providing the old
* We added a migration document, for those moving from Dancer to Dancer2,
thanks to Snigdha Dagar.
* There is a big "chat with us" banner on MetaCPAN.org, to help newbies
join the IRC channel.
* New 'content' keyword to set content in a declarative manner.

The first two are the biggest ones. I will email the list about both of
those separately.

I would like to congratulate and thank all those who worked on this
release: Andy Beverley, Dávid Kovács, DavsX, Paul
Cochrane, simbabque, Lindsey Beesley, Snigdha Dagar, Russell Jenkins, and
yours truly, Sawyer X.

Great work, everyone!
