"Another Mongrel release?! Is he insane?" Yeah, basically. This is yet another release of Mongrel that adds a bunch of little features people requested and I found were needed. This release is almost entirely targeted at Ruby on Rails folks as the majority of the changes went into the mongrel_rails runner. Get this release from the (correctly linked) site: * http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/ -- project site. * http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=1306 -- direct to downloads. == What's Mongrel Mongrel is a fast HTTP library and server for Ruby that is intended for hosting Ruby web applications of any kind using plain HTTP rather than FastCGI or SCGI. It is framework agnostic and already supports Ruby On Rails, Og+Nitro, and Camping frameworks. == Getting Mongrel Simplest way to get Mongrel is through RubyGems. If you've got Ruby On Rails floating around you just do this: $ gem install mongrel (or gem upgrade if you've already got it) $ cd myrailsapp $ mongrel_rails start -d That runs it in the background in *development* mode on port 3000. Use the -h option to start to see the various options you have. Stopping it is just: $ mongrel_rails stop Win32 people will need to avoid -d until I can test things an get a service written. == Changes Lots of little fixes and enhancements that people requested from the last release. * FAQ questions answered on threading and deployment scenarios. * Added some additional text to make the side icons a little clearer. * Created a dogs page with some people's favorite pets. * Write out a better message for 'mongrel_rails start' giving the environment and other stuff. * Default to using ENV['RAILS_ENV'] or "default" as environment. * Removed the restriction on the environments so people can have custom ones. * Added options for: * -n Number of processor threads. * -t Timeout for each processor before it kills a request. * -m Specify additional MIME type mappings in YAML format. * -c Change to directory before starting (both for start and stop commands) * -r Use a different document root from "public" * Use "rb" as open mode on all platforms (for windows binary files) * Fixed bug in DirHandler which prevented people from altering MIME mapping. The big change is the additional options that people have for running Ruby On Rails applications via Mongrel. Please try them out with your weird configurations and let me know how they work. == Dogs Don't forget to check out peoples favorite pets at http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/dogs.html Zed A.
