[ANN] Mongrel 0.3.3 -- Bug Fix


#1

Hey Folks,

This is a quick release that fixes a major bug. I forgot to require the
timeout library properly in mongrel.rb so people using Mongrel outside
of
Rails would see pauses. 0.3.3 fixes this all up.

The 0.3.3 release also has a small change to the examples/simpletest.rb
file
with some gzip response using Ruby’s zlib support. Curious what people
think about this and whether it works for them.

You can grab this release of Mongrel from:

Or just do gem install mongrel (or update if you’ve already installed
it).

Enjoy!

Let me work on the pre-built win32 gem. Other folks have done this but
it
seems to involve a bit of black magic.

Install failure on windows 2000.

I ran gem install mongrel, which gave me an

Unknow directory – mmake error.

Not to be discoruaged. I downloaded and installed MS C compiler
(VStoolkit), then grabbed the .gz file from rubyforge. When I unzipped
and
untar’d it, I could find nothing to compile.

Are there instructions somewhere on how to comipile and install Mongrel
on a
w2k platform? I’m a novice at compiling on windows.

Or will there be binaries avalable soon???

OK, I’ll try to be patient. I don’t really have a burning need for it
right this minute. It’s just that I reading so many good things about
Mongrel, that I feel I must be missing something really cool!

I sent Zed a patch that builds win32 gems earlier today. The next
release should have a binary version for those of us stuck on Windows.

Hi Larry, I’ve prepared a binary build for you, if you want to try.
It’s not a GEM package so you just unzip it in your ruby directory and
it should work.

Build with MSVC 2003.net with Ruby 1.8.4

Let me know if it works for you…


#7

Here’s a GEM I just made for those who cant wait…

Bear with me this is my first GEM.
