  1. - Rewriting message_queue_adapter interface (and superclass). Makes m…

    …uch more sense now.
    - Broke Skynet::Message into 3 classes, TaskMessage, ResultMessage and ErrorMessage (which inherits from ResultMessage)
    - MessageQueue adapters now assume if you pass :any as the task type you want, they should randomly pick from the master or task queues.
    - Added new SingleProcess message queue adapter to be the reference implementation and mock what a real message queue would work like.
    - Add new QuiQ queue, though I'm not using it yet.
    - Rafactor TupleSpace message queue adapter to use new superclass
    - Begin trying to move what was in Skynet::Task into Skynet::TaskMessage
    - Skynet::TaskMessage now runs the task.
    - Create a universal adapter tester. Just plug in your adapter and run the tests.

  2. Make sure we don't die if we can't connect to a manager for stats

    Some ruby installs Queue class does not have enq and deq, so I switched it to push/pop

  4. Remove worker queue adapters and skynet_worker_queue

    Last commit missed the following message:
    Skynet Workers now communicate with skynet manager by grabbing the manager over DRB and passing hashes directly to an internal
    Queue object held by the manager.
    The manager has a thread that watches the queue and updates the @worker_queue when new items are in the queue.
    The worker/manager no longer use tuplespace to communicate
    Removed unecessary logging in a few places.

    …ving it in the individually installed launchers. Much cleaner.
    - Make sure skynet_launcher passes ALL config options when it starts the tuple_space_server.
    - Remove starting of tuplespace server from installed skynet launcer
    - Make sure we verify if we have a valid tuplespace even if we're not using a ringserver.
    - Allow you to pass use_ringserver as a command line flag to skynet_tuplespace_server

  3. The major change is that now every skynet manager forks off its own t…

    …uplespace server as a worker queue, which it kills when it dies. Workers communicate directly with that queue instead of the main message queue.
    Also, skynet shuts down more quickly.
    - SkynetMessageQueue now optionally takes a hash of options instead of a proxy object.
    - Renamed Skynet::Server as Skynet::TuplespaceServer
    - Config changes
      - renamed TS_DRBURIS to TS_DRBUSI which is now a string instead of an array
      - added TS_WQUEUE_URI
    - Skynet::Worker has a short circuit exit if its not processing a task at the moment.  It notifies_worker_stop when it does.
    - Skynet::WorkerQueue now assumes it's using a separate queue than the MessageQueue.  It passes the TS_WQUEUE_URI to the Worker Queue proxy class.
     - skynet runner that gets installed from skynet_install now passes some piddir and logdir flags to skynet_tuplespace_server start.
    - Skynet::Manager
      - the manager now forks off a tuplespace worker queue for its workers to communicate with it.   It kills that process once the manager is killed.
      - Fix bug in mark_worker_as_sopped
      - Signal workers now takes :idle as a tasktype where it sends the signal to workers that aren't reported as busy.  It also takes an array of tasktypes.
      - shutdown() passe an array of tasktypes including :idle to send_signal

  1. - Gracefully handles trying to start skynet more than once

    - Dramatically improve shutdown time.   If a worker isn't doing anything it just dies right away regardless of where it is in the
      polling process

    - Skynet manager now supports being daemonized by running ./script/skynet start and ./script/skynet stop!
    - Change mysql text fields to longtext in migration and schema files
    - Include some extras including our init.d script, our nagios monitoring script, rails controller and view for monitoring
    - Created a new skynet rails initializer which gets installed from skynet_install --rails
    - Modified the skynet_install skynet runner to take skynet initializer into account
    - Skynet::Manager - Work on the shutdown proceedure. Much more graceful now.
    - Changed some of the debug levels in Skynet::Worker and Skynet::Manager
    - Skynet::ActiveRecordExtensions Fixed a bug where it would fail if your table had fewer than 1000 rows.  It performs a count
     first now to make sure there are enough rows.
    - Fix a comment in Skynet::MapreduceHelper.  self.reduce should ahve been self.reduce_each
    - Fix some bugs in skynet_config where it would choke on Skynet::Config.logfile_location if the SKYNET_LOG_FILE was set to a filehandle like STDOUT.
    - Fix a skynet manager bug where it would get weird empty BigDecimals from the worker statuses
    - Added Skynet::Job.results_by_job_id to retrieve results from asyncronous jobs
    - Moved all worker stats into the manager class which now does stats no matter what worker_queue_adapter your using.  The stats are more detailed now as well.
    - Removed all stats code from worker queue classes
    - Added a stats_for_hosts method to Skynet::Manager which aggregates stats accross many managers.
    - Move worker methods out of the mysql message queue adapter into a new mysql worker queue adapter
    - Added a Skynet::Manager#stats method
    - Skynet::Manager now saves its stats to a file and reloads them when it starts.
    - Skynet::Manager.get returns the current local manager drb object
    - Workers now just add their statuses to the worker queue (without trying to take their old one off)
    - Managers just keep polling the queue, taking worker statuses off, and holding an internal hash of worker statuses.
    - The Manager doesn't pass around the worker_pids or worker_queue anymore, just updates when needed and uses the cached one.
    - Changed how the skynet pid file and log file are specified.  You can now specify the directory and file separately.
    - Lowered the WORKER_CHECK_DELAY
    - Made some API changes to Skynet::Config so you can call class or instance methods for all the CONFIG options.
    - Add new WORKER_QUEUE_ADAPTER config setting
    - Create Skynet::MessageQueue.start_or_connect
    - More work on Skynet::WorkerQueue class
