[ANN] Mongrel 0.3.13 Pre-Release -- Win32! Win32!


#1

Hello Windows Users!

I have finally got my new computer with it’s win32 build working and
have just done the first pre-release for 0.3.13 that has win32 support.

*** All win32 users should try to grab the pre-release and tell me if it
works. ***

You can install it with:

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

From EITHER win32 or any other platform (this release is for everyone).

–WORKS FOR EVERYONE. ALL PEOPLE TEST.–

It’s not only for win32, just the first big one for them.

REPORTING BUGS

Just reply to this so I can fix them fast. You can also post bugs on
the Mongrel site at:

http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?atid=5145&group_id=1306&func=browse

LATEST BUG FIXES

  • Fixes the -B debug mode for Edge Rails (because people really like
    raping object_id and class function calls in order to Monkey patch in
    their own versions with nasty ass parameters killing all introspection).
  • Documentation fixes for pound and mongrel_cluster.
  • Fixes group and user changing so that if you are already that user it
    will let you.
  • Fixes a problem with -C (config file) where many options weren’t being
    set. Config files now OVERRIDE any command line settings.

OFFICIAL 0.3.13 THIS WEEKEND

Unless a horrible bug is found this pre-release will graduate to an
official release on Sunday.

$ gem install mongrel --source=http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/releases/
Correction! You have to do these things instead:

gem install win32-service
gem install mongrel --source=http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/releases/
gem install mongrel_service
–source=http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/releases/

Then you’ll now not use mongrel_rails_service, but instead just use
mongrel_rails and you’ll get these commands:

  • restart
  • service::install
  • service::remove
  • service::start
  • service::stop
  • start
  • stop
  • version

The service::install, service::remove, service::start, and service::stop
now all do what the mongrel_rails_service sript did.

This means DO NOT DO THIS ON PRODUCTION SITES!!!

Sorry for the confusion. Thanks.
