Phusion Passenger 3.0.19 released

By Hongli Lai on January 10th, 2013

Phusion Passenger is an Apache and Nginx module for deploying Ruby and Python web applications. It has a strong focus on ease of use, stability and performance. Phusion Passenger is built on top of tried-and-true, battle-hardened Unix technologies, yet at the same time introduces innovations not found in most traditional Unix servers. Since mid-2012, it aims to be the ultimate polyglot application server.

Recent changes

Phusion Passenger is under constant maintenance and development. New features will be introduced in Phusion Passenger 4. In the mean time, the Phusion Passenger 3 branch receives bug fixes only.

Phusion Passenger also has an Enterprise version which comes with a wide array of additional features. With the released of the open source Phusion Passenger 3.0.19, Phusion Passenger Enterprise has also been updated at the same time. By buying Phusion Passenger Enterprise you will directly sponsor the development of the open source version.

  • Nginx security fix: do not display Nginx version when server_tokens are off.
  • Fixed compilation problems on some systems, such as Fedora 17.
  • Fixed Union Station compatibility with Rails 3.2 and other Union Station-related bugs.
  • Phusion Passenger Enterprise Standalone now supports rolling restarts and deployment error resistance.

How do I upgrade to 3.0.19?

Please refer to the upgrade instructions in the manual:

Final

The open source Phusion Passenger is provided to the community for free. We also provide an Enterprise version which comes with a wide array of additional features. Development of the open source version is directly sponsored by Enterprise sales.

    Does this version support multiple rubies?

  • http://www.phusion.nl/ Hongli Lai

    No, support for multiple Rubies can be found in the 4.x series. The 3.x series will only receive bug fixes until 4.0 is finalized. 4.0 beta 2 is due soon.

  • Hello Phusion

    Is there a reason why 3.0.17 doesn’t restart all application instances on a server, whereas 3.0.18/19 restarts everything, even when you’re running two different sites? I’m about to downgrade passenger because of this, and it is really annoying – puts me off even looking at your paid offerings frankly as it seems like an attempt to sell the ‘rolling restart’ feature by downgrading the free version.

    Nothing has been changed in this area. There should be no difference between 3.0.17 and 3.0.19 w.r.t. restarting behavior. If you can post a detailed explanation of the problem on the mailing list (with instructions on how to reproduce etc), perhaps we can help you.

    Does Rails 4 have any issues with this version?

  • http://www.phusion.nl/ Hongli Lai

    Rails 4 works perfectly with both Phusion Passenger 3 and Phusion Passenger 4.
