Phusion Passenger 2.0.1 Released: A Significant Upgrade
Phusion has released Passenger 2.0.1, the first non-release candidate version of their popular Passenger / mod_rails / mod_rack Rails deployment Apache module. Passenger was developed to make the deployment of Rails applications on Apache "a breeze" and now with the 2.x series, it makes it easy to deploy Rack based applications too (such as Merb apps).
Curiously, Passenger now also boasts Python WSGI support, meaning you can deploy both Rails and Django apps in the same way. Passenger also say the 2.x version is more stable, using less memory, and features significantly improved load balancing between processes. Upload buffering is also implemented, making Passenger even more efficient in file upload situations.
