Unicorn is an HTTP server for Rack applications designed to only serve
fast clients on low-latency, high-bandwidth connections and take
advantage of features in Unix/Unix-like kernels. Slow clients should
only be served by placing a reverse proxy capable of fully buffering
both the the request and response in between Unicorn and slow clients.

The longer change summaries/release notes:
== unicorn 2.0.0 - mostly internal cleanups
Despite the version number, this release mostly features
internal cleanups for future versions of Rainbows!. User
visible changes include reductions in CPU wakeups on idle sites
using high timeouts.
Barring possible portability issues due to the introduction of
the kgio library, this release should be ready for all to use.
However, 1.1.x (and possibly 1.0.x) will continue to be
maintained. Unicorn 1.1.5 and 1.0.2 have also been released
with bugfixes found during development of 2.0.0.
== unicorn 1.1.5
This maintenance release fixes several long-standing but
recently-noticed bugs. SIGHUP reloading now correctly restores
default values if they’re erased or commented-out in the Unicorn
configuration file. Delays/slowdowns in signal handling since
0.990 are fixed, too.
== unicorn 1.0.2
This is the latest maintenance release of the 1.0.x series.
All users are encouraged to upgrade to 1.1.x stable series
and report bugs there.
