I’ve been meeting lots of great folks at RailsConf and in my spare time
hacking up this latest pre-release of Mongrel. It features the
following new goodies:
- Change to user:group is done after the socket is bound, but still as
early as possible.
- Mongrel will try to reap dead threads as soon as possible, especially
when it gets overloaded with too many open files.
- Minor tweaks to documentation.
I’m not making this release official until after RailsConf because I
want to see folks use it. It should help prevent more situations where
Mongrel can go into a state where it’s not listening anymore. Next
thing to come is the ability to set how long a thread has to be active
before it’s considered old.
gem install mongrel --source=http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/
No win32 on this one since I’m going to release it officially right
