Unicorn 4.8.3 - the end of an era

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.


This release updates documentation to reflect the migration of the
mailing list to a new public-inbox[1] instance. This is necessary
due to the impending RubyForge shutdown on May 15, 2014.

The public-inbox address is: [email protected]
(no subscription required, plain text only)
ssoma[2] git archives: git://bogomips.org/unicorn-public
browser-friendly archives: unicorn Ruby/Rack server user+dev discussion/patches/pulls/bugs/help

Using, getting help for, and contributing to unicorn will never
require any of the following:

  1. non-Free software (including SaaS)
  2. registration or sign-in of any kind
  3. a real identity (we accept mail from Mixmaster)
  4. a graphical user interface

Nowadays, plain-text email is the only ubiquitous platform which
meets all our requirements for communication.

There is also one small bugfix to handle premature grandparent death
upon initial startup. Most users are unaffected.

an “archives first” approach to mailing lists

some sort of mail archiver (using git)
