Mason 2 looks very interesting. First of all it has the a file a page modus operandi that works so well for PHP, then it has all the template inheritance and Moose template candies that look very powerful, finally the page code works in the request scope - i.e. it can access the page parameters and stuff from attributes which is so much more convenient then passing these values around as method parameters as you do in Catalyst. The only part lacking from my cursory look at the documentation is anything that works in the application scope. Most probably it is just that I did not found anything in the most exposed documents - but this omission still looks ominous.
