4 * MUCH faster compilation
5 We've applied code aggregation techniques, allowing Phusion Passenger
6 to be compiled much quicker now. For example, compiling the Nginx
7 component (not Nginx itself) now takes only 29 seconds instead of 51
8 seconds, an improvement of 75%!

9 * Fixed malfunction after web server restart
10 On Linux systems that have a non-standard filesystem on /tmp, Phusion
11 Passenger could malfunction after restarting the web server because of
12 a bug that's only triggered on certain filesystems. Issue #569.
13 * Boost upgraded to version 1.44.0.
14 We were on 1.42.0.
15 * Much improved startup error messages
16 Phusion Passenger performs many extensive checks during startup to ensure
17 integrity. However the error message in some situation could be vague.
18 These startup error messages have now been improved dramatically, so that
19 if something goes wrong during startup you will now more likely know why.

23 * passenger-make-enterprisey fixed
24 This is the command that people can run after donating. It allows people
25 to slightly modify Phusion Passenger's display name as a joke. In 3.0.0 it
26 was broken because of a typo. This has been fixed.
27 * [Apache] RailsEnv and RackEnv configuration options are now equivalent
28 In previous versions, RailsEnv only had effect on Rails 1 and Rails 2 apps
29 while RackEnv only had effect on Rack apps. Because Rails 3 apps are
30 considered Rack apps, setting RailsEnv had no effect on Rails 3 apps.
31 Because this is confusing to users, we've now made RailsEnv and RackEnv

50 On some systems, running passenger-status could print the following
51 message:
52
53 *** Cleaning stale folder /tmp/passenger.1234
54
55 ...after which Phusion Passenger breaks because that directory is
56 necessary for it to function properly. The cause of this problem
57 has been found and has been fixed.

FooBarWidget authored
58 * [Apache] Fixed some upload handling problems
59 Previous versions of Phusion Passenger check whether the size of
60 the received upload data matches the contents of the Content-Length
61 header as received by the client. It turns out that there could
62 be a mismatch e.g. because of mod_deflate input compression, so
63 we can't trust Content-Length anyway and we're being too strict.
64 The check has now been removed.

108 When mod_xsendfile is being used, Phusion Passenger might print
109 bogus error messages like "EPIPE" or "Apache stopped forwarding
110 the backend's response" to the log file. These messages are
111 normal, are harmless and can be safely ignored, but they pollute
112 the log file. So in this release we've added code to suppress

149 Release 2.2.9
150 -------------
151
152 * Fixed compatibility with Rails 3.
153 Actually, previous Phusion Passenger releases were already compatible
154 with Rails 3, depending on the spawn method that would be invoked. Here's
155 the story:
156
157 Since Phusion Passenger 2.2.8, when the file config.ru exists, Phusion
158 Passenger will treat the app as a Rack app, not as a Rails app. This is
159 in contrast to earlier versions which gave Rails detection more priority
160 than Rack detection. Phusion Passenger loads Rack apps and Rails apps in
161 different ways. The Rails loader was not compatible with Rails 3, which
162 is what we've fixed in this release.
163
164 That said, a Rails 3 app would have worked out-of-the-box on Phusion
165 Passenger 2.2.8 as well because Rails 3 apps include a config.ru file
166 by default, causing Phusion Passenger 2.2.8 to use the Rack loader.
167 Earlier versions of Phusion Passenger would just completely bail out
168 because they'd use the Rails loader.
169
c674aab @FooBarWidget Document some more Rails 3 caveats.
FooBarWidget authored
170 That said, with 2.2.9 there are still some caveats:
171 - Smart spawning (the mechanism with which REE's 33% memory reduction
172 is implemented) is *not* supported for Rack apps. This means that if
173 you want to utilize smart spawning with Rails 3, then you should
174 remove your config.ru file.
175 - Rails 3 depends on Rack 1.1.0. You must have Rack 1.1.0 installed as
176 a gem, even if you've bundled it with the gem bundler. This is because
177 Phusion Passenger itself depends on Rack.
178
179 Both of these caveats are temporary. We have plans to solve both of these
180 properly in the future.
4a0e6ab @FooBarWidget Document what's up with gem bundler compatibility.
FooBarWidget authored
181 * What's up with the Gem Bundler?
182 There has been some reports that Phusion Passenger is not compatible with
183 Yehuda Katz's gem bundler (http://github.com/wycats/bundler). This might
184 have been true for an earlier version of the gem bundler, but the latest
185 version seems to work fine. Please note that you need to insert the
186 following snippet in config/preinitializer.rb, as instructed by the gem
187 bundler's README:
188
189 require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/gems/environment"
190
191 The Rails::Boot monkey patching code as posted at
192 http://yehudakatz.com/2009/11/03/using-the-new-gem-bundler-today/
193 does not seem to be required anymore.

212 * [Nginx] Added OpenSSL as dependency.
213 OpenSSL is required in order to install Nginx, but this was not checked
214 by passenger-install-nginx-module. As a result,
215 passenger-install-nginx-module fails on e.g. out-of-the-box Ubuntu

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

325 In the last release we introduced support for setting ENV environment
326 variables with mod_env, and got rid of the code for setting CGI environment
327 headers. It turns out that some people relied on the old behavior, we so now
328 environment variables set with mod_env are set in both ENV and in the CGI

359 * [Nginx] Fixed the installer's --extra-configure-flags flag when combined with --auto-download
360 Arguments passed to --extra-configure-flags were not being passed to the
361 Nginx configure script when --auto-download is given. This has been
362 fixed: bug #349.

364 * [Nginx] Fixed unnecessary download of PCRE
365 The installer now checks whether PCRE is installed in /opt/local (e.g.
366 MacPorts) as well before concluding that it isn't installed and going ahead
367 with downloading PCRE.

369 * Fixed STDERR capturing
370 While spawning an application, Phusion Passenger captures any output written
371 to STDERR so that it can show them later if the application failed to start.
372 This turns out to be much more difficult than expected, with all kinds of
373 corner cases that can mess up this feature.

375 For example, if the Rails log file is not writable, then this can cause
376 Rails to crash with a bizarre and unhelpful error message whenever it tries
377 to write to STDERR:
378
379 /!\ FAILSAFE /!\ Thu Aug 20 14:58:39 +1000 2009
380 Status: 500 Internal Server Error
381 undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass
382
383 Some applications reopen STDERR to a log file. This didn't work.
384
385 Of all of these problems have been fixed now. (Bug #332)

387 * Fixed some bugs in application sources preloading
388 Rails >= 2.2 already preloads the application sources, in which case Phusion
389 Passenger wasn't supposed to perform it's own preloading, but the Rails
390 >= 2.2 detection code was bugged. This has been fixed.

392 Rails < 2.2 doesn't preload the application sources by itself, but there
393 should be a certain order with which the sources are preloaded, otherwise
394 preloading could fail in some applications. We now enforce a specific load
395 order: first models, then controllers, then helpers.
