Name        : perl-Catalyst-Runtime
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 5.90002
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Catalyst-Runtime/
Summary     : Catalyst Framework Runtime
Description :
This is the primary class for the Catalyst-Runtime distribution.  It provides
the core of any runtime Catalyst instance.

Update Information:

The Catalyst::Engine sub-classes have all been removed and deprecated, to be replaced with Plack handlers.

Plack is an implementation of the PSGI specification, which is a standard interface between web servers and application frameworks.

This should be no different for developers, and you should not have to migrate your applications unless you are using a custom engine already.

This change benefits Catalyst significantly by reducing the amount of code inside the framework, and means that the framework gets upstream bug fixes in Plack, and automatically gains support for any web server which a PSGI compliant handler is written for.

It also allows you more flexibility with your application, and allows the use of cross web framework 'middleware'.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update perl-Catalyst-Runtime' at the command line.
