[ANN] Mongrel -- RailsConf 2006 Release

Hello folks,

Another release going out based on the very limited work done at
RailsConf. Despite all the fun and the talks I did manage to squeeze in
some more defensive maneuvers for everyone’s favorite canine ninja, and
sit down with Why and Rick Olsen to hook up the mongrel_upload_progress
plugin. They quickly working to get Rails and Camping gear to do nice
upload progress notifiers.

This release sports the following additions:

  • Mongrel now defends against file starvation better by killing off
    any threads that take longer than 60 seconds, but only if it has run
    out of files.
  • Small parts have extra functionality to allow you to add a
    “notification filter”. This filter is a handler that will get notified
    about the entire HTTP process rather than just receive the final
    request. Check out the mongrel_upload_progress gem to see how that
  • A few small fixes, mostly in the errors that are printed out.
  • The new mongrel_upload_progress plugin by Why and Rick that gives
    you the goodies.


As usual you can install with any of the following commands:

gem install mongrel

gem update

gem update mongrel

gem install mongrel --source=http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/releases

If one doesn’t work, try the others, try uninstalling first, and try
reading the RubyGems documentation.

Finally, you might have to wait a bit while the mirrors get updated and
while I flip over to win32 to actually post their build. Should by up
by 10:30am CDT.
