* [ANN] unicorn 5.5.2 - Rack HTTP server for fast clients and *nix

unicorn is an HTTP server for Rack applications designed to only serve
fast clients on low-latency, high-bandwidth connections and take
advantage of features in Unix/Unix-like kernels.  Slow clients should
only be served by placing a reverse proxy capable of fully buffering
both the the request and response in between unicorn and slow clients.


Due to its ability to tolerate crashes and isolate clients, unicorn
is unfortunately known to prolong the existence of bugs in applications
and libraries which run on top of it.

Consider this just an announcement to inform existing users of a
new version, not something to convince you to switch to something
that set the entire Ruby back decades in terms of concurrency.

Thanks to Terry Scheingeld, we now workaround a Ruby bug
and can now run with taint checks enabled:

There's also a few documentation updates and building packages
from source is easier since pandoc is no longer a dependency
(and I can no longer afford the bandwidth or space to install

Patch is unfortunately gigantic from whitespace changes,
but you can view/download it here and every other mirror.

Subject: doc: replace pandoc-"Markdown" with real manpages

Trying to install pandoc on an x86-64 Debian stable system says:
> Need to get 15.2 MB of archives.
> After this operation, 117 MB of additional disk space will be used.

My laptop is on metered Internet nowadays and already low on
disk space, so installing pandoc is not realistic.  Maybe it
wasn't realistic to other hackers with limited resources in the

There's also dozens of subtly incompatible Markdown flavors out
there, most of which can't really handle manpages.  Anyways,
roff isn't too bad and at least groff is well-documented.

Updating the website now requires olddoc 1.8.0 (which is much
smaller than pandoc), but I'm the only one with that burden.  On
the flipside more users can update and read the manpages locally
without extra software, since nearly every developer's *nix
system has man(1) command, unlike pandoc.
