Hot on the heels of our 2.0.0 release, we're happy as a Sunday in Paris, full of song, dance, and laughter to announce the immediate availability of TorqueBox v2.0.1. This fixes a couple of regressions that slipped in between cr1 and the 2.0.0 final release, as well as a few bugs that didn't surface in the beta/candidate cycle.

What is TorqueBox?

TorqueBox is a Ruby application server built on JBoss AS7 and JRuby. In addition to being one of the fastest Ruby servers around, it supports Rack-based web frameworks, and provides simple Ruby interfaces to standard JavaEE services, including scheduled jobs, caching, messaging, and services.

What's changed since 2.0.0?

There aren't that many fixes in 2.0.1, but a couple of them are important, and warranted a release sooner rather than later:

  • Clustering behind mod_cluster was broken in 2.0.0, but now works like gangbusters!
  • Our capistrano tasks had an issue where it would appear to redeploy an application, but actually failed to do so.

Other notable changes in this release include:

Don't be a stranger!

As always, if you have any questions about or issues with TorqueBox, please get in touch. ## Issues resolved since 2.0.0
