Cutelyst 0.4.0 is out!

This is yet another big step for Cutelyst, this release bring several important fixes to the last version, and stabilizes the API a bit more. So far I have successfully deployed 3 commercial applications build on top of Cutelyst + Grantlee5, and the result is great.

If you don’t know Cutelyst yet it’s a Web Framework allowing you to build web applications using Qt, for more info check (this blog and) our website/wiki which is still work in progress: http://cutelyst.org or join #cutelyst on freenode

This release brings the following improvements:

  • Further speed improvements by simplifying several code paths and improving the dispatcher logic was an overall of 15% speedup
  • Added an API to enable Grantlee template caching which greatly improve speed when using Grantlee templating
  • Improved Query and Body parameters to allow for properly dealing with posts that contains the same field id multiple times

New features:

  • REST API – Since 0.1.0 I was asked about supporting REST, and since I needed it for another project that I got involved the support landed early, the behavior is the same as Catalyst::Action::REST which allows you to easily add a foo_DELETE method which will get automatically called if the request method is DELETE for example.
  • Added a Credential HTTP plugin to handle Basic HTTP (and in future Digest) authentication
  • Added support for Authenticate and ProxyAuthenticate basic parsing on the Headers class
  • Finished Context::uriFor() methods that allows for easily building an URI.
  • Added a method to do a DNS PTR lookup to get the hostname of the client
  • Added a C_PATH to more easily set the matching part of the path (thanks to Dan Vrátil)

Fixes:

  • Fixed a few memory leaks
  • Fixed a crash if the body wasn’t set
  • Fixed uWSGI body buffered device
  • And a lot of other misbehaviors found on post release…

For the next release I hope to be able to port the Catalyst tutorial to the Cutelyst equivalent, and finish a few other API changes.

As before the API is unstable but don’t be afraid of playing with it, most changes will simply require a rebuild of your application.

Have fun! https://gitorious.org/cutelyst/cutelyst/archive/0f28d7da9b04061fe80f7e9cf24a120250a02e02.tar.gz

      Unfortunately no, there is a simple test application in the repo, but not step-by-step tutorial, I hope to be writing some material for the next release.
