40 * [Nginx] New option passenger_max_requests
41 This is equivalent to the PassengerMaxRequests option in the Apache
42 version: Phusion Passenger will automatically shutdown a worker process
43 once it has processed the specified number of requests.
44 Contributed by Paul Kmiec.
45 * [Apache] New option PassengerBufferResponse
46 The Apache version did not buffer responses. This could block the Ruby
47 worker process in case of slow clients. We now enable response buffering
48 by default. It can be turned off through this option. Feature contributed
49 by Ryo Onodera.
50 * Fixed remaining Ruby 1.9.3 compatibility problems
51 We already supported Ruby 1.9.3 since 3.0.8, but due to bugs in Ruby
52 1.9.3's build system Phusion Passenger would fail to detect Ruby 1.9.3
53 features on some systems. Fixes issue #714.

74 Release 3.0.8
75 -------------
76
77 * [Nginx] Upgraded preferred Nginx version to 1.0.5.
78 * [Nginx] Fixed various compilation problems on various platforms.
79 * [Nginx] We now ensure that SERVER_NAME is equal to HTTP_HOST without the port part.
80 This is needed for Rack compliance. By default Nginx sets SERVER_NAME to
81 whatever is specified in the server_name directive, but that's not necessarily
82 the correct value. This fixes, for example, the use of the 'map' statement
83 in config.ru.
84 * [Nginx] Added the options passenger_buffer_size, passenger_buffers and passenger_busy_buffers_size.
85 These options are similar to proxy_module's similarly named options. You can
86 use these to e.g. increase the maximum header size limit.
87 * [Nginx] passenger_pre_start now supports virtual hosts that listen on Unix domain sockets.
88 * [Apache] Fixed the pcre.h compilation problem.
89 * [Standalone] Fixed 'passenger stop'.
90 It didn't work properly because it kept waiting for 'tail' to exit.
91 We now properly terminate 'tail' as well.
92 * Fixed compatibility with Rake 0.9.
93 * Fixed various Ruby 1.9 compatibility issues.
94 * Various documentation improvements.
95 * New Union Station filter language features.
96 It now supports status codes and response times.

101 Release 3.0.7
102 -------------
103
104 * Fixed a bug passenger-install-apache2-module. It could crash on
105 some systems due to a typo in the code.
106 * Upgraded preferred Nginx version to 1.0.0.
107 * Phusion Passenger Standalone now pre-starts application processes
108 at startup instead of doing that at the first request.
109 * When sending data to Union Station, the HTTP status code is now also
110 logged.
111 * Various Union Station-related stability improvements.
112 * The Linux OOM killer was previously erroneously disabled for all
113 Phusion Passenger processes, including application processes. The
114 intention was to only disable it for the Watchdog. This has been
115 fixed, and the Watchdog is now the only process for which the OOM
116 killer is disabled.
117 * Fixed some compilation problems on OpenBSD.
118 * Due to a typo, the dependency on file-tail was not entirely removed
119 in 3.0.6. This has now been fixed.

122 Release 3.0.6
123 -------------
124
125 * Fixed various compilation problems such as XCode 4 support and OpenBSD support.
126 * Fixed various Union Station-related stability issues.
127 * Fixed an issue with host name detection on certain platforms.
128 * Improved error logging in various parts.
129 * The dependency on the file-tail library has been removed.
130 * During installation, check whether /tmp is mounted with 'noexec'.
131 Phusion Passenger's installer relies on /tmp *not* being mounted
132 with 'noexec'. If it is then the installer will now show a helpful
133 error message instead of bailing out in a confusing manner. Users
134 can now tell the installer to use a different directory for storing
135 temporary files by customizing the $TMPDIR environment variable.
136 * Phusion Passenger Standalone can now run Rackup files that are not named 'config.ru'.
137 The filename can be passed through the command line using the -R option.

144 Union Station users that are using Apache may notice that no process
145 information show up in Union Station. This is because of a bug in

167 Release 3.0.4
168 -------------
169
170 * [Apache] Changed mod_dir workaround hook priority
171 Phusion Passenger temporarily disables mod_dir on all Phusion
172 Passenger-handled requests in order to avoid conflicts. In order to do this
173 it registers some Apache hooks with the APR_HOOK_MIDDLE priority, but it
174 turned out that this breaks some other modules like mod_python. The hook
175 priority has been changed to APR_HOOK_LAST to match mod_dir's hook
176 priorities. Issue reported by Jay Freeman.
177 * Added support for Union Station: http://www.unionstationapp.com/
178 * Some error messages have been improved.

184 * [Nginx] Preferred Nginx version upgraded to 0.8.54
185 The previous preferred version was 0.8.53.
186 * PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI now contain the original escaped URI
187 Phusion Passenger passes the URI, as reported by Apache/Nginx, to
188 application processes through the PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI variables.
189 These variables are supposed to contain the original, unescaped URI, e.g.
190 /clubs/%C3%BC. Both Apache and Nginx thought that it would be a good idea
191 to unescape the URI before passing it to modules like Phusion Passenger,
192 thereby causing PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI to contain the unescaped URI,
193 e.g. /clubs/ü. This causes all sorts of encoding problems. We now manually
194 re-escape the URI when setting PATH_INFO and REQUEST_URI. Issue #404.
195 * The installer no longer detects directories as potential commands
196 Previously the installer would look in $PATH for everything that's
197 executable, including directories. If one has /usr/lib in $PATH
198 and a directory /usr/lib/gcc exists then the installer would recognize
199 /usr/lib/gcc as the compiler. We now explicitly check whether the item
200 is also a file.
201 * PseudoIO now responds to #to_io
202 Phusion Passenger sets STDERR to a PseudoIO object in order to capture
203 anything written to STDERR during application startup. This breaks
204 some libraries which expect STDERR to respond to #to_io. This has now
205 been fixed. Issue #607.
206 * Fixed various other minor bugs
207 See the git commit log for details.

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

FooBarWidget authored
223 * Fixed file descriptor closing issues on FreeBSD
224 Phusion Passenger child processes didn't correct close file descriptors
225 on FreeBSD because it queries /dev/fd to do that. On FreeBSD /dev/fd

227 by default. Issue #597.

240 * Fixed malfunction after web server restart
241 On Linux systems that have a non-standard filesystem on /tmp, Phusion
242 Passenger could malfunction after restarting the web server because of
243 a bug that's only triggered on certain filesystems. Issue #569.
244 * Boost upgraded to version 1.44.0.
245 We were on 1.42.0.
246 * Much improved startup error messages
247 Phusion Passenger performs many extensive checks during startup to ensure
248 integrity. However the error message in some situation could be vague.
249 These startup error messages have now been improved dramatically, so that
250 if something goes wrong during startup you will now more likely know why.

258 * Removed passenger-stress-test

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

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

389 Release 2.2.9
390 -------------
391
392 * Fixed compatibility with Rails 3.
393 Actually, previous Phusion Passenger releases were already compatible
394 with Rails 3, depending on the spawn method that would be invoked. Here's
395 the story:
396
397 Since Phusion Passenger 2.2.8, when the file config.ru exists, Phusion
398 Passenger will treat the app as a Rack app, not as a Rails app. This is
399 in contrast to earlier versions which gave Rails detection more priority
400 than Rack detection. Phusion Passenger loads Rack apps and Rails apps in
401 different ways. The Rails loader was not compatible with Rails 3, which
402 is what we've fixed in this release.
403
404 That said, a Rails 3 app would have worked out-of-the-box on Phusion
405 Passenger 2.2.8 as well because Rails 3 apps include a config.ru file
406 by default, causing Phusion Passenger 2.2.8 to use the Rack loader.
407 Earlier versions of Phusion Passenger would just completely bail out
408 because they'd use the Rails loader.
409
c674aab @FooBarWidget Document some more Rails 3 caveats.
FooBarWidget authored
410 That said, with 2.2.9 there are still some caveats:
411 - Smart spawning (the mechanism with which REE's 33% memory reduction
412 is implemented) is *not* supported for Rack apps. This means that if
413 you want to utilize smart spawning with Rails 3, then you should
414 remove your config.ru file.
415 - Rails 3 depends on Rack 1.1.0. You must have Rack 1.1.0 installed as
416 a gem, even if you've bundled it with the gem bundler. This is because
417 Phusion Passenger itself depends on Rack.
418
419 Both of these caveats are temporary. We have plans to solve both of these
420 properly in the future.
4a0e6ab @FooBarWidget Document what's up with gem bundler compatibility.
FooBarWidget authored
421 * What's up with the Gem Bundler?
422 There has been some reports that Phusion Passenger is not compatible with
423 Yehuda Katz's gem bundler (http://github.com/wycats/bundler). This might
424 have been true for an earlier version of the gem bundler, but the latest
425 version seems to work fine. Please note that you need to insert the
426 following snippet in config/preinitializer.rb, as instructed by the gem
427 bundler's README:
428
429 require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/gems/environment"
430
431 The Rails::Boot monkey patching code as posted at
432 http://yehudakatz.com/2009/11/03/using-the-new-gem-bundler-today/
433 does not seem to be required anymore.

453 OpenSSL is required in order to install Nginx, but this was not checked
454 by passenger-install-nginx-module. As a result,
455 passenger-install-nginx-module fails on e.g. out-of-the-box Ubuntu

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