Thin 0.7.1 Fancy Pants release

Hey all,

Thin web server version 0.7.1 (codename Fancy Pants) is out!

== What’s new?

  • Clean stale PID files when starting as daemon, fixes #53 [Chu Yeow]
  • Require EventMachine 0.11.0 for UNIX domain sockets. Until it’s
    released, install from:
    gem install eventmachine --source
  • Ruby 1.8.5 compatibility, closes #49 [Wincent C.]
  • Move all EventMachine stuff out of Server, you can now create a
    Thin Backend that
    does not depend on EventMachine.
  • Rename Connector to Backend. Extend Thin::Backends::Base to
    implement your own.
  • Fix high memory usage with big POST body, fixes #48

== Get it!

Install Thin from RubyForge:

gem install thin

Or using my mirror:

gem install thin --source

To use Thin with UNIX domain sockets you need EventMachine 0.11.0 from
my gem server (it’s not released yet):

gem install eventmachine --source
