4 * [Nginx] Dropped support for Nginx versions older than 1.0.0
b6e4cd1 @FooBarWidget Update NEWS
FooBarWidget authored
5 * [Nginx] Fixed support for Nginx 1.1.4+
6 * [Nginx, Standalone] Upgraded default Nginx version to 1.0.10
7 The previously default version was 1.0.5.

8 * [Nginx] New option passenger_max_requests
9 This is equivalent to the PassengerMaxRequests option in the Apache
10 version: Phusion Passenger will automatically shutdown a worker process
11 once it has processed the specified number of requests.
12 Contributed by Paul Kmiec.
13 * [Apache] New option PassengerBufferResponse
14 The Apache version did not buffer responses. This could block the Ruby
15 worker process in case of slow clients. We now enable response buffering
16 by default. It can be turned off through this option. Feature contributed
17 by Ryo Onodera.
18 * Fixed remaining Ruby 1.9.3 compatibility problems
19 We already supported Ruby 1.9.3 since 3.0.8, but due to bugs in Ruby
20 1.9.3's build system Phusion Passenger would fail to detect Ruby 1.9.3
21 features on some systems. Fixes issue #714.

42 Release 3.0.8
43 -------------
44
45 * [Nginx] Upgraded preferred Nginx version to 1.0.5.
46 * [Nginx] Fixed various compilation problems on various platforms.
47 * [Nginx] We now ensure that SERVER_NAME is equal to HTTP_HOST without the port part.
48 This is needed for Rack compliance. By default Nginx sets SERVER_NAME to
49 whatever is specified in the server_name directive, but that's not necessarily
50 the correct value. This fixes, for example, the use of the 'map' statement
51 in config.ru.
52 * [Nginx] Added the options passenger_buffer_size, passenger_buffers and passenger_busy_buffers_size.
53 These options are similar to proxy_module's similarly named options. You can
54 use these to e.g. increase the maximum header size limit.
55 * [Nginx] passenger_pre_start now supports virtual hosts that listen on Unix domain sockets.
56 * [Apache] Fixed the pcre.h compilation problem.
57 * [Standalone] Fixed 'passenger stop'.
58 It didn't work properly because it kept waiting for 'tail' to exit.
59 We now properly terminate 'tail' as well.
60 * Fixed compatibility with Rake 0.9.
61 * Fixed various Ruby 1.9 compatibility issues.
62 * Various documentation improvements.
63 * New Union Station filter language features.
64 It now supports status codes and response times.

69 Release 3.0.7
70 -------------
71
72 * Fixed a bug passenger-install-apache2-module. It could crash on
73 some systems due to a typo in the code.
74 * Upgraded preferred Nginx version to 1.0.0.
75 * Phusion Passenger Standalone now pre-starts application processes
76 at startup instead of doing that at the first request.
77 * When sending data to Union Station, the HTTP status code is now also
78 logged.
79 * Various Union Station-related stability improvements.
80 * The Linux OOM killer was previously erroneously disabled for all
81 Phusion Passenger processes, including application processes. The
82 intention was to only disable it for the Watchdog. This has been
83 fixed, and the Watchdog is now the only process for which the OOM
84 killer is disabled.
85 * Fixed some compilation problems on OpenBSD.
86 * Due to a typo, the dependency on file-tail was not entirely removed
87 in 3.0.6. This has now been fixed.

90 Release 3.0.6
91 -------------
92
93 * Fixed various compilation problems such as XCode 4 support and OpenBSD support.
94 * Fixed various Union Station-related stability issues.
95 * Fixed an issue with host name detection on certain platforms.
96 * Improved error logging in various parts.
97 * The dependency on the file-tail library has been removed.
98 * During installation, check whether /tmp is mounted with 'noexec'.
99 Phusion Passenger's installer relies on /tmp *not* being mounted
100 with 'noexec'. If it is then the installer will now show a helpful
101 error message instead of bailing out in a confusing manner. Users
102 can now tell the installer to use a different directory for storing
103 temporary files by customizing the $TMPDIR environment variable.
104 * Phusion Passenger Standalone can now run Rackup files that are not named 'config.ru'.
105 The filename can be passed through the command line using the -R option.

112 Union Station users that are using Apache may notice that no process
113 information show up in Union Station. This is because of a bug in
114 Phusion Passenger's Apache version, which has now been fixed.
115 * [Apache] PassengerAnalytics has been renamed to UnionStationSupport
116 This option has been renamed for consistency reasons.

118 This option has been renamed for consistency reasons.

121 Upon investigation this turned out to be a compatibility with older
122 libcurl versions. Affected systems include all RHEL 5 based systems,

135 Release 3.0.4
136 -------------
137
138 * [Apache] Changed mod_dir workaround hook priority
139 Phusion Passenger temporarily disables mod_dir on all Phusion
140 Passenger-handled requests in order to avoid conflicts. In order to do this
141 it registers some Apache hooks with the APR_HOOK_MIDDLE priority, but it
142 turned out that this breaks some other modules like mod_python. The hook
143 priority has been changed to APR_HOOK_LAST to match mod_dir's hook
144 priorities. Issue reported by Jay Freeman.
145 * Added support for Union Station: http://www.unionstationapp.com/
146 * Some error messages have been improved.

150 -------------
151
152 * [Nginx] Preferred Nginx version upgraded to 0.8.54
153 The previous preferred version was 0.8.53.
154 * PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI now contain the original escaped URI
155 Phusion Passenger passes the URI, as reported by Apache/Nginx, to
156 application processes through the PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI variables.
157 These variables are supposed to contain the original, unescaped URI, e.g.
158 /clubs/%C3%BC. Both Apache and Nginx thought that it would be a good idea
159 to unescape the URI before passing it to modules like Phusion Passenger,
160 thereby causing PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI to contain the unescaped URI,
161 e.g. /clubs/ü. This causes all sorts of encoding problems. We now manually
162 re-escape the URI when setting PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI. Issue #404.
163 * The installer no longer detects directories as potential commands
164 Previously the installer would look in $PATH for everything that's
165 executable, including directories. If one has /usr/lib in $PATH
166 and a directory /usr/lib/gcc exists then the installer would recognize
167 /usr/lib/gcc as the compiler. We now explicitly check whether the item
168 is also a file.
169 * PseudoIO now responds to #to_io
170 Phusion Passenger sets STDERR to a PseudoIO object in order to capture
171 anything written to STDERR during application startup. This breaks
172 some libraries which expect STDERR to respond to #to_io. This has now
173 been fixed. Issue #607.
174 * Fixed various other minor bugs
175 See the git commit log for details.

188 There was a typo in a NetBSD-specific fcntl() call. It also turns out that

190 has been worked around by using other functions. Issue #593.

FooBarWidget authored
191 * Fixed file descriptor closing issues on FreeBSD
192 Phusion Passenger child processes didn't correct close file descriptors
193 on FreeBSD because it queries /dev/fd to do that. On FreeBSD /dev/fd
194 only returns meaningful results if fdescfs is mounted, which it isn't
195 by default. Issue #597.

208 * Fixed malfunction after web server restart
209 On Linux systems that have a non-standard filesystem on /tmp, Phusion
210 Passenger could malfunction after restarting the web server because of
211 a bug that's only triggered on certain filesystems. Issue #569.
212 * Boost upgraded to version 1.44.0.
213 We were on 1.42.0.
214 * Much improved startup error messages
215 Phusion Passenger performs many extensive checks during startup to ensure
216 integrity. However the error message in some situation could be vague.
217 These startup error messages have now been improved dramatically, so that
218 if something goes wrong during startup you will now more likely know why.

226 * Removed passenger-stress-test
227 This tool was used during the early life of Phusion Passenger for stress

231 In previous versions, RailsEnv only had effect on Rails 1 and Rails 2 apps

233 considered Rack apps, setting RailsEnv had no effect on Rails 3 apps.

266 * [Apache] Fixed some upload handling problems
267 Previous versions of Phusion Passenger check whether the size of
268 the received upload data matches the contents of the Content-Length
269 header as received by the client. It turns out that there could
270 be a mismatch e.g. because of mod_deflate input compression, so
271 we can't trust Content-Length anyway and we're being too strict.
272 The check has now been removed.

357 Release 2.2.9
358 -------------
359
360 * Fixed compatibility with Rails 3.
361 Actually, previous Phusion Passenger releases were already compatible
362 with Rails 3, depending on the spawn method that would be invoked. Here's
363 the story:
364
365 Since Phusion Passenger 2.2.8, when the file config.ru exists, Phusion
366 Passenger will treat the app as a Rack app, not as a Rails app. This is
367 in contrast to earlier versions which gave Rails detection more priority
368 than Rack detection. Phusion Passenger loads Rack apps and Rails apps in
369 different ways. The Rails loader was not compatible with Rails 3, which
370 is what we've fixed in this release.
371
372 That said, a Rails 3 app would have worked out-of-the-box on Phusion
373 Passenger 2.2.8 as well because Rails 3 apps include a config.ru file
374 by default, causing Phusion Passenger 2.2.8 to use the Rack loader.
375 Earlier versions of Phusion Passenger would just completely bail out

c674aab @FooBarWidget Document some more Rails 3 caveats.
FooBarWidget authored
378 That said, with 2.2.9 there are still some caveats:
379 - Smart spawning (the mechanism with which REE's 33% memory reduction
380 is implemented) is *not* supported for Rack apps. This means that if
381 you want to utilize smart spawning with Rails 3, then you should
382 remove your config.ru file.
383 - Rails 3 depends on Rack 1.1.0. You must have Rack 1.1.0 installed as
384 a gem, even if you've bundled it with the gem bundler. This is because
385 Phusion Passenger itself depends on Rack.
386
387 Both of these caveats are temporary. We have plans to solve both of these
388 properly in the future.

389 * What's up with the Gem Bundler?
390 There has been some reports that Phusion Passenger is not compatible with
391 Yehuda Katz's gem bundler (http://github.com/wycats/bundler). This might
392 have been true for an earlier version of the gem bundler, but the latest
393 version seems to work fine. Please note that you need to insert the
394 following snippet in config/preinitializer.rb, as instructed by the gem
395 bundler's README:
396
397 require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/gems/environment"
398
399 The Rails::Boot monkey patching code as posted at
400 http://yehudakatz.com/2009/11/03/using-the-new-gem-bundler-today/
401 does not seem to be required anymore.

510 is, support for encoded slashes is disabled by default. A new configuration

531 Prior to version 2.2.3, environment variables set by mod_env are passed to

533 In the last release we introduced support for setting ENV environment
534 variables with mod_env, and got rid of the code for setting CGI environment
535 headers. It turns out that some people relied on the old behavior, we so now
