Win32-service 0.5.0


#1

Hi all,

I’m happy to announce the release of win32-service 0.5.0

What’s new?

The Daemon class now supports a service_init hook. This was added to
allow service writers to perform any long running initialization code
that needs to happen before service_main within the Daemon.

This was added when it was discovered that any initialization code that
took more than 2 seconds would cause the service to fail on startup
with a timeout error. Thanks go to Jamey C. for the spot and to
Park H. for the patch.

Where is it?

As usual, it’s on both the RAA and Rubyforge:

http://rubyforge.org/projects/win32utils/
http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/win32-service/

Enjoy!
