Thin 0.6.1 Cheesecake release

Hey all,

Version 0.6.1 (codename Cheesecake) of the fastest Ruby server is out!
http://code.macournoyer.com/thin/

== What’s new?

Lots and lots of new features: config file support, uses less memory,
speed tweaks,
and UNIX domain socket connection support!

More info:

Changelog from 0.5.4:

  • Add support for connection through UNIX domain socket.
    Use the --socket (-S) option w/ the thin script to configure the
    socket filename.
    Nginx support binding to a UNIX socket like this:

    upstream backend {
    server unix:/tmp/thin.0.sock;
    server unix:/tmp/thin.1.sock;
    server unix:/tmp/thin.2.sock;
    }

    Start your servers like this:

    thin start -s3 -S/tmp/thin.sock

  • Remove Server#listen! method. Use Server#start instead.

  • Server can now yield a Rack::Builder to allow building an app in one
    call:

    Server.start ‘0.0.0.0’, 3000 do
    use Rack::CommonLogger
    use Rack::ShowExceptions
    map “/lobster” do
    use Rack::Lint
    run Rack::Lobster.new
    end
    end

  • Add a very basic stats page through Stats adapter, load w/ --stats
    and browse to /stats.

  • Add --trace (-V) option to trace request/response and get backtrace
    w/out all Ruby debug stuff.

  • Add --config (-C) option to load options from a config file in thin
    script [Matt T.].

  • Alter response headers to output directly to a string.

  • Improve specs stability.

  • Move request body to a Tempfile if too big (> 112 MB)

  • Remove useless check for max header size in Request (already done in
    the parser)

== Get it!

sudo gem install thin

Might take some time for the gem mirrors to be updated, try adding
–source http://code.macournoyer.com to the command if it doesn’t work

If you installed a previous alpha version (if you have 0.6.1 already
installed)
uninstall it before: sudo gem uninstall thin

WARNING:
Thin is still alpha software, if you use it on your server you
understand the
risks that are involved.

Sorry all. I was reading the list and fell for my daughter’s
distraction. In two seconds flat she’d unlocked my ipod and sent a
reply.

Curse you Apple your uis so easy a 18 month old can master them!
