Hey all,

Version 0.6.3 (codename Ninja Cookie) of the fastest Ruby server is out!


== What's new?

Thin is now more flexible and extensible then ever and even easier to

* Add tasks for Vlad the Deployer in example/vlad.rake [cnantais]
* Add Ramaze Rackup config file in example dir [tmm1]
Use like this from you Ramaze app dir:

thin start -r /path/to/thin/example/ramaze.ru

* Add the --rackup option to load a Rack config file instead of the
Rails adapter.
So you can use any framework with the thin script and start
cluster and stuff like that.
A Rack config file is one that is usable through the rackup
command and looks like this:

use Rack::CommonLogger
run MyCrazyRackAdapter.new:)uterly, 'cool')

Then use it with thin like this:

thin start --rackup config.ru

* thin config --chrdir ... -C thin/yml do not change current
directory anymore, fixes #33.
* Add a better sample god config file in example/thin.god that loads
all info from config
files in /etc/thin. Drop-in replacement for the thin runlevel
service [Gump].
* Add support for specifying a custom Connector to the server and
add more doc about Server
* Add a script to run thin as a runlevel service that can start at
startup, closes #31 [Gump]
Setup the service like this:

sudo thin install /etc/thin

This will install the boot script under /etc/init.d/thin. Then
copy your config files to
/etc/thin. Works only under Linux.
* Set process name to 'thin server (' when running as a
daemon, closes #32.
* Make sure chdir option from config file is used when present.
* Raise an error when starting a server as a daemon and pid file
already exist, fixes #27.

== Get it!

sudo gem install thin

Or using my mirror:

sudo gem install thin --source http://code.macournoyer.com

Thin is still alpha software, if you use it on your server you
understand the
risks that are involved.
