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.

PATH_INFO (aka REQUEST_PATH) increased to 4096 (from 1024).
This allows requests with longer path components and matches
the system PATH_MAX value common to GNU/Linux systems for
serving filesystem components with long names.
Apps that fork() (but do not exec()) internally for background
tasks now indicate the end-of-request immediately after
writing the Rack response.
Thanks to Hongli L., Lawrence P., Patrick Wenger and Nuo Yan
for their valuable feedback for this release.
