* add solr instrumentation files
* fix bug in startup when running JRuby
* fix for unicorn not reporting when the proc line had 'master' in it
* fix regression for passenger 2.0 and earlier
* fix after_fork in the shim
* republished gem without generated rdocs
* rails3 instrumentation (no developer mode support yet)
* removed the ensure_worker_thread started and instead defined an after_fork
handler that will set up the agent properly in forked processes.
* change at_exit handler so the shutdown always goes after other shutdown
* add visibility to active record db transactions in the rpm transaction
traces (thanks to jeremy kemper)

to run in the wrong place

* add API method to abort transaction recording for in-flight transactions
* remove account management calls from newrelic_api.rb

override the rails env used to pull the app_name out of newrelic.yml
* added TorqueBox recognition (thanks Bob McWhirter)
* renamed config settings: enabled => monitor_mode; developer => developer_mode;
old names will still work in newrelic.yml
* instrumentation for DelayedJob (thanks Travis Tilley)
* added config switches to turn off certain instrumentation when you aren't
interested in the metrics, to save on overhead--see newrelic.yml for details.

* add 'multi_threaded' config option to indicate when the app is running
multi-threaded, so we can disable some instrumentation

between web and non-web transactions.
* database instrumentation notices all database commands in addition to the core commands

if they were web transactions; this will facilitate better visibility of background
tasks and eventually things like rack, metal and Sinatra

all controller actions (does not include background tasks)

call, resulting in lower overhead and improved visibility into
different DB operations; only AR operations that are not hitting the
query cache will be measured to avoid overhead
