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 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.
