With the mainline Ruby VM, generic instance variables are implemented as
a st (hash) table for each object costing at least 192 bytes.  This
isn't a huge problem for unicorn as it only ever allocates one
HttpRequest object, but still makes the HttpRequest class less suitable
for other servers.

While generic ivars will be less expensive when Ruby 2.3 is released in
December, we're still better off eliminating them entirely as they're
not going to be cheaper than T_OBJECT instance variables.

With this, I'll probably tag and release 5.0.0-rc1 soon.

Eric Wong (2):
      move the socket into Rack env for hijacking
      http: move response_start_sent into the C ext

Note: Yes, [PATCH 1/2] introduces a unicorn-specific field into the
Rack env, but unicorn is not the only server with
`env["#{servername}.socket"]' in the Rack env.
And [PATCH 2/2] isn't useful without [PATCH 1/2]

This avoids the expensive generic instance variable for @socket
and exposes the socket as `env["unicorn.socket"]' to the Rack

As as nice side-effect, applications may access
`env["unicorn.socket"]' as part of the API may be useful for
3rd-party bits such as Raindrops::TCP_Info for reading the tcp_info
struct on Linux-based systems.

Yes, `env["unicorn.socket"]' is a proprietary API in unicorn!
News at 11!  But then again, unicorn is not the first Rack server
to implement `env["#{servername}.socket"]', either...

* [ANN] unicorn 5.0.0.pre1 - incompatible changes!

This release finally drops Ruby 1.8 support and requires Ruby 1.9.3
or later.  The horrible "Status:" header in our HTTP response is
finally gone, saving at least 16 precious bytes in every single HTTP

Under Ruby 2.1 and later, the monotonic clock is used for timeout
handling for better accuracy.

Several experimental, unused and undocumented features are removed.

There's also tiny, minor performance and memory improvements from
dropping 1.8 compatibility, but probably nothing noticeable on a
typical real-life (bloated) app.

The biggest performance improvement we made was to our website by
switching to olddoc.  Depending on connection speed, latency, and
renderer performance, it typically loads two to four times faster.

Finally, for the billionth time: unicorn must never be exposed
to slow clients, as it will never ever use new-fangled things
like non-blocking socket I/O, threads, epoll or kqueue.  unicorn
must be used with a fully-buffering reverse proxy such as nginx
for slow clients.

I'll tag 5.0.0 final in a week or so if all goes well
