Welcome to Planet Moose, a brief write up on what’s been happening in the world of Moose in the past month, for the benefit of those of you who don’t have their eyes permanently glued to the IRC channel, or the MetaCPAN recent uploads page.

If you’d like to contribute some news for next month’s issue, you can do so on the wiki.


There have been a couple of minor releases of Moose this month (2.1203 and 2.1204) aimed at squelching a bug exposed by a recent update to Module::Runtime. (See Ovid’s blog post on the issue.)


Technically the MooseX project started on the last day of January, but it’s too interesting to leave out of this round-up. It’s a port of most of the ideas and syntax of Moose to Ruby. The project is still in its early days, but already a lot has been implemented.
