* Added Actor#stream method that makes it easy to create cross-server streams [DHH]. Example:
desc "Run a tail on multiple log files at the same time"
task :tail_fcgi, :roles => :app do
stream "tail -f #{shared_path}/log/fastcgi.crash.log"
* Make update_code and symlink a macro task under the name "update" for easy of deploy to servers that does not run fcgis [DHH]

role :app, ""
role :file, "", :no_release => true

HOSTS= cap setup # one-off setup for that server, doesn't need to be prespecified in the recipes file
* Added respect for ENV["ROLES"] that'll be used instead of the roles specified in the task definition [DHH]. Example:
task :setup, :roles => [ :app, :web, :db ]
# normally this would run every where
ROLES=app cap setup # this will only run for the app role, overwritting the default declaration
* Added :hosts option to task definition that allows you to specify cross-cutting tasks [DHH]. Example:
task :setup, :hosts => [ "", "" ] do
# this task will happen on 06 and 01 regardless of which roles they belong to
