[ANN] Mongrel Cluster 0.2.1- Last Call

Hi all:

Here’s a pre-release for mongrel_cluster to support current Mongrel pre-release.


  • ‘mongrel_rails cluster::restart’ now calls ‘mongrel_rails stop’ and
    ‘mongrel_rails start’. ‘cluster::restart’ now accepts the ‘force’
    argument instead of ‘soft’.
  • Added ‘.conf’ as a valid file extension for mongrel_cluster_ctl.
  • Added check for missing script and directory to the init.d script.
    (Neil W.)
  • Added rc script for FreeBSD in resources/mongrel_cluster.sh (Andrew
  • Added support for --prefix including Capistrano tasks (Nat Brown)

Thanks for the contributions from Andrew Bennett, Nat Brown, and
Neil W…
